Drew Estate–My Uzi Weighs A Ton

Thanks to the people at Drew Estate for sending me some samples of their new cigar. My Uzi Weighs a Ton will be introduced at the 2011 IPCPR trade show. The final product will have a band, and come in 3 sizes – 5×60, 6×60, and 7×60. I have limited information on the cigar. It’s [...]

Illuminati Crusade

Thanks to Joel for getting me some samples for today’s review. I obtained these while attending Ed’s grand opening at his new shop earlier this year. Illuminati is a fairly new brand that is blended and made in Rocky Patel’s factory in Nicaragua. I am always curious and reluctant to try new brands. A few [...]

Play Ball, Not Politics, fer Crissakes!

Florida’s Tampa/ St. Pete area is rich in baseball tradition, hosting great minor league teams over the decades, as well as the present day Tampa Bay Devil Rays. The current major league team has been celebrating their heritage by wearing throwback jerseys of those teams of the past that brought great joy to the Florida [...]

Joya de Nicaragua–Antano 1970

The cigar up for review today is a tribute to the original Nicaraguan puro. It was introduced post Cuban Embargo and apparently it was popular. But honestly I don’t care about that. You can read more on their website. As always, I paired this cigar with water and offer you my review.   Wrapper: Nicaragus [...]

Mederos–Fifty 3

Where I got the Mederos Fifty 3 from, I have no idea. I literally found them in my humidor and figured why not. The bands caught my attention, as did the nice chocolaty brown wrapper. I don’t have any other information on the Mederos, but their website isn’t bad at all.   Wrapper: Corojo from [...]

Another Smokin’ Father’s Day

Father’s Day is a glorious day for me as I really do celebrate the love I have for my kids. My daughter just turned 20 and my son is the classic 16 year old teen age boy. (NO WAY Zman, you’re WAY to youthful to have kids that age – yeah, I know, I hear [...]

JFR Maduro

The JFR line of cigars is made by Casa Fernandez and stands for Just For Retailers. Strangely enough, they can be found online pretty easily. I tried the Corojo version of this cigar, and thought it was all right. I figured I’d give the Maduro a try.   Wrapper: Nicaraguan Maduro Bonder & Filler: Nicaraguan [...]

Perdomo Patriarch Maduro

I tend to think of Perdomo as an “Everyman’s” cigar. They often are right down the middle of the road in flavors and price, which isn’t a bad thing. The Perdomo Patriarch comes in 3 wrappers – Cuban seed Corojo, Ecuadorian Connecticut, or Nicaraguan Maduro. Today I am reviewing the Maduro wrapped version of this [...]

Cigars, Cars & Bikes Done JR Whippany Style

Nothing, I mean NOTHING brings out the gear-heads in full throttle like Bike & Car Nite at JR CIGARS in Whippany, New Jersey. It was a hot and muggy evening as the machines rolled into the lot, all for a night of metal, rubber, chrome, and testosterone. The smell of fire-grilled  burgers & dogs wafted [...]
