Carlos Torano Vault

I picked up a couple Vault’s at a local shop. While chatting with @cigarmonkey43, I realized that I was never really impressed with Carlos Torano cigars in the past. But lately, I have found their stuff to be enjoyable. So without further ado, here are my thoughts on the Carlos Torano Vault.   Wrapper: Nicaragua [...]

Quesada Seleccion Espana

I’m paraphrasing what is on the Sag Imports website. The Quesada Seleccion Espana a blend aimed at customers in Spain. High unemployment, and high cost of Cuban cigars has apparently led the Spanish to seek other alternatives. Quesada has responded with this blend. That’s about as elaborate as I can get. Thanks to Jackie for [...]

1/2 Billion and counting by Frank Seltzer

500-million of anything is kinda a big deal (unless you are counting the federal budget and deficit). It has taken 80 years but Zippo is going to make its 500 millionth lighter on June 5th. They announced this yesterday. Now I know they may not be the best for cigars, you have to let the [...]

General Cigar Trip Day 4

Well, as they say, all good things must come to an end. This trip has been unbelievably amazing! There was nothing planned for today so we used it as much-needed day of relaxation. This resort had so much to offer, such as tennis, massages, golf, and of course there was a beach and a pool. [...]

AVO Domaine 10

I picked up a couple of these the other day at a local cigar shop. The creepy guy behind the counter suggested them, so I figured why not. To those of you that are new to my site – I’m not big on intro’s and long winded back stories of cigars. So let’s see how [...]

Take My Wife, Please…but Leave My Cigars, by Tommy Zman

Ah, the quote made famous by the late, great Henny Youngman, “Take My Wife, Please!” Then there was the legendary writer, Sir Rudyard Kipling who’s love for the hand rolled leaf knew no bounds as he often talked about cigars in his writings. When once asked what he would do if his wife objected to [...]

Ultimate Cigar Fantasy Day 2

Today we learned all about the cigar-creation process, from the blending stage all the way through the packaging stage. We even got to create our own blends! First, we were shown a table laid out with all the different types of tobacco leaf, and were taught what the flavors of each were. We used our [...]
