Padron Series 3000 Maduro

A recent post from Walt over at Stogie Review rang true to me in a way. Walt’s dilemma in 2011 was his local cigar shop closed. This limited his ability to reach to the shelf for new stuff, BS with reps, and be connected. Also there was a decline in “Perks” AKA free stuff. He [...]

Tatuaje La Casita Criolla

I picked up this cigar at Ed’s shop. Being a Tatuaje fan, I had to try it. After looking at the stats, it peaked my curiosity more. All Connecticut broadleaf cigar? Who has heard of such a thing? Not me… I was expecting something pretty mild and predictable. Let’s see how it went…   Wrapper: [...]

Nestor Miranda Special Selection Oscuro

I picked up this cigar at random. What appealed to me was the size, look, and the fact that they call this size the “Coffee break.” I like coffee breaks, I like cigars… Why not give it a try. This cigar can be had in an Ocsuro wrapper or Rosado. You can read more about [...]

La Aroma De Cuba–Mi Amor

The Mi-Amor is a collaboration between Ashton and the Garcia Family. It is claimed to be rich, complex, and very well balanced. I picked some up at Ed’s shop recently, as he commented to me that he liked it. I figured I’d give them a try. I paired the cigar with water as always.   [...]
