Drew Estate's Liga Privada T52

Again, lead by hype I had to try the new Liga Privada T52. I fired it up tonight and from the moment I punched this cigar I knew it was going to be a good smoke simply because the construction was absolutely flawless. It burns perfectly all the way throughout the entire cigar. It is set as a full bodied cigar and I would say that, that is dead on correct. Strong woody/cedary flavors. The wrapper is what really impressed me. It has United States Connecticut Habano wrapper. It…

New Favorite Cigar????

Okay, so I have heard a few people raving about this new Avo LE10 so I had to give it a try. I lit it up and instantly the flavors rush to the palate. I wasn't sure what to expect at all. The richness and complexity of this cigar has blown me away, it still has that classic Avo taste but it is like an Avo on steroids. It is rich full flavored, full bodied and amazingly tasty. The construction is of course perfect like any other Avo and the draw is flawless. The cigar truely builds from light to… Continue

Winston Churchill by Davidoff

I decided to give this cigar a try and see if it lived up to the Davidoff name. I was very impressed with this cigar, it was more full bodied than every Davidoff that I have smoked. The size I smoked was the Chequers which is a corona extra size with a 46 ring size and 5.5 inch length. The ring size was perfect and allowed the equadorian wrapper to shine through with the full flavor that this cigar offers. It had a slight spice with the typical Davidoff sweetness to round it off with the… Continue

IIllusione 888!!!

I smoked an Illusione 888 tonight and honestly forgot how good this cigar was. It was one of those cigars that was hyped up when it was released in 2007 and I wanted to smoke it again and see if it really was as good as the hype. Well, it is, it is a fabulous smoke medium to full bodied all Nicaraguan and has a lot of peppery notes to it. The ring gauge is perfect at 48 and it allows just enough wrapper to add a lot of flavor but yet enough filler to mellow it out. They double bind these cigars… Continue

The Old Faithful!

I decided to pull out a Romeo Y Julieta from the humidor that I had purchased here about 8 or so months ago and decided to light it up. It had been a while since I had smoked one, and all the talk about the Reserve Real being the number one selling cigar in the world I decided to see what it was like with some age on it. This is a very light cigar, to change things up a little from my normal medium to full bodied cigars. It was a very mild, yet creamy cigar with slight hints of coffee and a… Continue

Partagas Benji Master Series!!!!

So tonight I lit up this new Partagas Benji Master series, unfortunately it is a limited addition cigar, with only 5000 boxes made. However, this cigar is by far the best Partagas that I have had in a very long time. It is hard to find a peppery, cedary, also nutty, Dominican cigar. This cigar is closer to full bodied, but very tasty to the palate. I highly suggest everyone trying this cigar before they are all gone! I can confidentally say this being my third one that I have smoked, that Benji… Continue

La Flor Double Press

The la flor Double Press has been in for a few weeks now and to those that dont know anything about it here is a little overview! Anyone that enjoys a full flavored medium bodied cigar will love this one. Most people are a little afraid of the la flor product because of the double ligero which is mainly looked at as a beat you over the head cigar ( which isn't true, just full bodied) and they will not venture into the rest of their products because of it. I am smoking my second Double press… Continue

Nestor Miranda Ruky!!!!!

I lit this cigar by toasting the small figurado foot until in opened up the draw a little. This is the second one i have smoked of this size and have to say i am very impressed. Many people have not heard of this brand and i suggest it to anyone that enjoys a medium - bodied cigar. I do have to say compared to the original honduran blend the nicaraguan has a lot more flavor along with a little more spice. For some reason the ruky size burns a lot better and seems to have a little more spice.… Continue

The New Cain Cigar

I have read the reviews in magazines and heard everyone raving about this cigar, well we finally got it in. We have 3 sizes in and 1 torpedo with a maduro wrapper. I am smoking the natural torpedo right now and I am very impressed. When they said it was a straight ligero they were not kidding. It is very full in flavor but yet very smooth at the same time, this cigar will please all of the regulars and anyone that enjoys a full bodied smoke. I strongly suggest anyone that is up for tasting a… Continue
