La Aurora 107 Robusto

First of all this cigar celebrates 107 years in the industry which is an amazing achievement. A well made cigar with a very firm pack, no soft spots but large veins throughout. Earthy scent from fresh which continued into taste for the first third. Smoke tasted a little dry, mainly of earth and tobacco. The […]

Vegueros Entretiempos

First impressions were not impressive. Very soft pack quite spongy with no defining scent from fresh.   Very easily lit with loads of smoke which was a bonus for such a light draw. The cigar started to go out quicker than most, smaller intervals between draws were required which kept it a little hot for my […]

Initially, Very spicy, Very intense and quite intimidating! Thankfully after the first third the cigar slightly mellowed. The spice moved into the […]

Casa Turrent 1901 Robusto

You could not help but notice the smell of this cigar was unique. A kind of savory smell. Most cigars have at least a hint of tobacco or ceder but this is very different. I am always drawn to dark oily wrappers and this San Andres Maduro wrapper really stands out. On top of this the […]
