Rocky Patel-The Edge Lite

While searching for a morning cigar in the humidor, I came across today’s review. This cigar has been buried in my humidor for at least two years. I haven’t smoked one of these in awhile, so I stuck with water instead of coffee for this mornings review of The Rocky Patel Edge Lite.   Wrapper: Ecuadorian Connecticut Binder: [...]

A Senseless Ban

I'm still scratching my head over New York City's move to ban flavored tobacco products, including flavored cigars and even pipe tobacco. It just doesn't make sense. And even if you're not a fan of flavored tobacco (and I'm not) you should still find the news disturbing.

Camacho Limited Harvest

I have no idea where or when I obtained the cigar for today’s review. All I know is, I put them in the “To be reviewed” humidor. The only hype I could find about the Limited Harvest relates to the wrapper. Apparently it is made from “A new strain of tobacco grown on the Eiroa’s [...]

The Joy of Finishing Last

I could still taste the tangerine the next morning. Eighteen hours had passed since I'd first tasted Bowmore Gold and the last tasting note was just getting finished on my palate. There are arenas where it's best to come in last, and the world of hyperpremium Scotch whisky is one of them.

Corona Cobras

While browsing the Corona Cigar Company in Orlando one day, I came across the cigar up for review today. It looks like it is exclusive to Corona. A standard culebra cigar is basically 3 cigars woven together. They are then taken apart and smoked individually. A quick story about culebra cigars… Apparently back in the [...]

Breaking through Customs in Havana

Cuban customs really gets to me. It's not that the agents at Jose Martí Airport in La Habana are particularly unpleasant, or even aggressive, but they make me nervous.
