Cigar Review: Mombacho Liga Maestro Gordo

Initial Thoughts: Today’s cigar comes from and is from a brand I know nothing about, Mombacho Cigars. Today I’m reviewing the Mombacho Liga Maestro Gordo, a 5 x 54 cigar that’s got a Nicaraguan wrapper, binder, and filler. Smelling the cigar, I got lots of floral notes. After cutting the Mombacho Liga Maestro with my […]

Cigar Review: Davidoff Millennium Robusto

Initial Thoughts: After I unboxed the September Platinum Box from Luxury Cigar Club, I asked viewers which cigar they’d like to see me review. Overwhelmingly, they voted for today’s cigar, the Davidoff Millennium Robusto. And, after reviewing the Davidoff Yamasa (another dark and bold cigar from the brand), I’m optimistic about this one. Starting in on […]

Cigar Review: 601 Steel Rod Robusto

Initial Thoughts: Coming out of Erik Espinosa’s factory (called La Zona) in Esteli, Nicaragua is today’s cigar, the 601 Steel Rod Robusto. Visually, the 601 Steel is a nice looking cigar. It’s got a toothy-looking Nicaraguan Habano Oscuro wrapper that’s quite dark. After punching the end, the draw was great and the cold draw flavors were […]

Cigar Review: JFR Lunatic Hysteria Toro

Initial Thoughts: Today’s cigar review comes from a brand I’ve historically really enjoyed. When I first found the JFR Lunatic Maduro, I loved its rich, chocolatey flavors. However, in the year or so since, I’ve struggled to find the same enjoyment from that cigar. So, when I saw that Aganorsa was launching a new blend in […]

Cigar Review: Caldwell Adventura The Explorer Corona Gorda

Initial Thoughts: When the community asks, we try to deliver! So, when one Nicholas asked me to review the Caldwell Adventura The Explorer Corona Gorda we got from, how could we say no? The Caldwell Adventura The Explorer Corona Gorda is a great looking cigar. However, after pulling it out of the cellophane, the cigar […]

Cigar Review: Davidoff Yamasa Robusto

Initial Thoughts: The first thing I noticed about the Davidoff Yamasa Robusto was its near-perfect construction. As you’d expect from a Davidoff product, the Yamas is a great looking cigar. After cutting the end, the excellent craftmanship yielded a perfect draw, something that is a requirement for a great cigar. The cold draw flavors were citrusy, […]

Cigar Review: Warped Futuro Toro

Initial Thoughts: The first thing I noticed about the Warped Futuro Toro is its narrow but flat head. Instead of a normal torpedo or belicoso, the Toro vitola of the Futuro comes to a point that’s been cut off. It kind of resembles a bullet. Interesting. Removing the cigar from the cellophane, I was greeted with […]

Cigar Review: Crowned Heads La Imperiosa Double Robusto (2015)

Initial Thoughts: I received the Crowned Heads La Imperiosa Double Robusto as a gift from a friend who’s had this cigar in his humidor since 2015. After removing the cigar from the aged and yellowed cellophane, one of the first things I noticed about the La Imperiosa was how shiny and oily the wrapper was.  However, […]

Cigar Review: Drew Estate Liga Privada H99 (2018)

Initial Thoughts: The first thing I noticed about the Drew Estate Liga Privada H99 Connecticut Corojo, after taking it out of its aged and yellowed cellophane, was its incredible aroma. The smells of cedar and mulch filled the air. The cold draw was perfect and I could taste flavors that were leafy, nutty, earthy, and woodsy. […]

Cigar Review: Cavalier Geneve White Series Diplomate Robusto

Initial Thoughts: Sometimes you want a great cigar to pair with coffee. And that’s just what happened when this Cavalier Geneve White Series Diplomate Robusto showed up from Today’s cigar comes from Cavalier Geneve, a cigar brand you’ll recognize by the thin, diamond-shaped strip of gold they stick near the label on each of their cigars. […]

Cigar Review: Oliva Serie V Melanio Maduro Robusto

Initial Thoughts: At this point, the Oliva cigar brand and the Serie V Melanios are pretty familiar to me. I’ve had several, and I reviewed the Oliva Serie V Melanio NATURAL Robusto, as well as the natural Melanio Churchill. However, until this review, I’d never had a Melanio with a maduro wrapper. So, when I saw […]

Cigar Review: La Flor Dominicana Andalusian Bull

Initial Thoughts: We might as well call this the “Illusive Bull” because I’ve been trying to get my hands on one of these La Flor Dominicana Andalusian Bulls for over a year. So, when I took a short trip to Over the Rhine Premium Cigars in the OTR neighborhood of Cincinnati and saw three Andalusian Bulls […]

Cigar Review: My Father La Promesa Lancero

Initial Thoughts: Over the past couple of years, I’ve developed a love/hate relationship with My Father Cigars. Some of Don Pepin’s sticks I love. Others, well, not so much. But today we’re smoking and reviewing the My Father La Promesa Lancero. One of the first things I notice about this cigar is the flattened pigtail end. After […]
