Illusione Epernay

Up for review today is another creation from Dion Giolito. I’ve enjoyed the Illusione brands so far, and figured it was time to test out the Epernay. I paired this cigar with water. Without further adieu, I offer you my thoughts.   Wrapper: Nicaraguan Corojo Binder/Filler: Nicaragua Size: Petite Corona 4.5 x 44 Price: Around $6.00   Pre-smoke & Construction: Giving the [...]

The Legend Lives

I smoked one of the greatest cigars ever produced on earth last night: the Dunhill Cabinetta. The robusto was produced in 1989 and was one of the last Dunhills to be made on the island before the Cubans dumped the British company and Davidoff. I have written about this before, but the Cubans wanted to control all their trademarks, or brands; so they told Dunhilll and Davidoff that they would no longer make their smokes.

The Lovable Losers in Life

Since the dawn of time, society has embraced our winners and champions. Trophies, diamond encrusted rings, parades, and meetings with the president are the rewards for achieving championship status. The New York Yankees, Montreal Canadiens, Boston Celtics, Pittsburgh Steelers, Tiger Woods, and Michael Phelps have been dominant in their respective sports and are emblematic of [...]

Don Kiki Limited Reserve (Green Label)

Today’s review was given to me awhile ago by my pal Ed over at St.Pete Pipe & Cigars. I think he eventually opted to not carry this line, although I could be wrong. Being a beta tester for a cigar shop is a great gig. Every now and then Ed brings me into the fold [...]

Siglo Limited Reserve

Up for review tonight is the Siglo Limited Reserve.   Wrapper: Ecuadorian Cubano Binder: Nicaraguan Filler: Dominican & Nicaraguan Size: 6 x 54 Torpedo Price: Around $5.00   Pre-Smoke & Construction: Giving the cigar a once over, I found it was visually appealing.

Cain Maduro

I had pretty good results with the Cain Habano, and figured it was only fair to give the maduro wrapped version of this cigar a try.     Wrapper: Mexican Maduro Filler & Binder: Nicaragua Size: 5.75 x 50 Price: Around $7.00   Pre-Smoke & Construction: The first thing I noticed about this cigar was the rugged looking dark wrapper. It was oily, [...]
