Cigar Review: J. London Ripper Robusto

Initial Thoughts J. London has been making cigars for over 10 years. And, for many years, they’ve only made one cigar, the Gold Series (as far as I know). With that cigar, they established themselves as a premium brand in the market. Then their warehouse burned to the ground. I’m not sure if today’s cigar, Read more…

Cigar Review: Room 101 Los Statos Deluxe Maduro Toro

Initial Thoughts The Room 101 Los Statos Deluxe Maduro Toro is a very mysterious cigar. It comes wrapped in white parchment paper that’s wrapped again in blue and white paper keeping this cigar’s appearance a total secret. Once the paper was pulled back, the LS Deluxe Maduro revealed a veiny and dark United States Connecticut Read more…

Cigar Review: Lampert Gatsby Torpedo

Initial Thoughts If you’ve never heard of Lampert Cigars, you’re not alone. I too was once unaware of this boutique brand, so when I received the curtly-named Lapert Gatsby Torpedo, I was curious.

Cigar Review: Diesel Rage Toro

Initial Thoughts The Diesel Rage Toro is a pretty basic-looking cigar. But, looks can be deceiving. The only way you’ll know who makes this cigar and what blend it is is by the small band around the foot. Other than its discrete branding, the Diesel Rage Toro was a good-looking cigar. It appeared to have Read more…
