Alec Bradley – Vice Press

Ed and I continue putting Alec Bradley cigars to the test over at The Stogie Review. The Vice Press starts off in the medium bodied range, but slowly builds into a full bodied, rich smoke. The flavors are pretty basic but have some interesting nuances. This is a cigar that requires you to set some [...]

Anyone who has been visiting this site knows my fondness of this month’s cigar site of the month. But first I have small rant to get out of the way… I can’t take it anymore… All of these cigar blogs out there, and many of them turn in to crap. They come out of the gate [...]

Back From the Big Smoke

Saturday night, Mashantucket, Connecticut, about 8 pm. I'm standing next to the Quesada Cigars booth at the Big Smoke at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods, puffing on a Coronado by La Flor Double Corona and talking to Hostos Fernandez Quesada. A guy walks up to me and says hello.

Pride Cigars – Corojo

My pal Eric was kind enough to donate a couple Pride Corojo cigars for me to review. I don’t have any background info on this cigar, or the company. I do know that whenever there has been an event in the area, they made sure I knew about it so we could meet up. Unfortunately, [...]

JFR Corojo

I picked up this cigar at a local shop near where I work. What caught my eye was the non-flashy packaging, weird looking foot (see pic below), and the nice pigtail cap. I figured it at least deserved a review. From what I’ve read on the Internet, JFR stands for “Just for retailers.” As always [...]
