Perdomo2 Limited Edition 2008

Once again, I found myself rummaging around in the small humidor. This is where I keep cigars that are waiting to be reviewed. Being pretty backed up, I randomly chose tonight’s review, the Perdomo 2 Limited Edition 2008. I find if I pair up with decent water, this helps me during a review. So let’s [...]

A Song For Smoking

Remember protest songs? They have a fine tradition that stretches back for centuries of using music as a means of dissent whenever and wherever freedom was threatened. The music of the '60s was in many ways defined by such voices as Dylan and Lennon railing against inequality, lost liberty and infringements on our rights to pursue happiness.

LaFlor Dominicana Double Ligero(Maduro)

Otherwise known as the “Chisel.” When I saw this cigar I had to pick up a couple and give it a go. On LaFlor’s site, they warn you “Eat before you smoke-em.” I’ve been known to smoke the fullest bodied cigars on an empty stomach. Since this is pre-dinner, I can’t wait any longer. Let’s [...]

La Aroma de Cuba Monarch

As much as it has ever been, a visit from the stork is still a moment properly celebrated with a good smoke and a glass of the finest cognac. No, I’m not talking about myself, but a good friend of mine whose family has been enlarged this week. I realize that I have not been [...]

Memorial Day

What a great weekend. I swam, I fished, I barbecued and I had an extremely relaxing time. I think I spent all of ten minutes inside. The highlight was Sunday. It began with the Memorial Day parade, where our little town puts on a big show. My wife, little boy and I walked into town just before the start of the parade, taking our spots in front of the local market.

Remembering

This morning was simply one of those spectacular weather days you would typically associate with the Memorial Day holiday – sunny, blue sky, and around 70 degrees at 9:30 am. It is the perfect day for a barbecue, a ball game, or time just spent with friends and loved ones. I was on my way home [...]

Sometimes They Get it Right

I hung out with a cigar buddy of mine in Chicago last week when I was in the Windy City for Wine Spectator¹s Grand Tour, a super wine tasting event with more than 240 excellent wines on pour. So I sneaked in a smoke after lunch on the day of the evening tasting.

DaVinci

Up for review today is the DaVinci. A strange concept for a cigar, but for the price I figured it was worth a try. The few details I could find are… The wrapper is grown by the Oliva Family, and is a brand owned by Altadis. Per my normal routine, I am pairing up with [...]
