Vegas Robaina Famoso

This rustic light brown wrapper compliments the bold stated band perfectly. This cigar has a slight box press appearance. Upon lighting I found the draw was a little tight with flavours of sweet hay and white pepper showing first. The draw continues to be tight but doesn’t inhibit smoke output. Cedar and leather flavours start […]

Smoking Jacket

Another cigar with a whole lot of hype around it that I want to believe! I don’t read too much into hyped cigars but the hype worked this time, I’m really keen to see what all the fuss is about. This cigar looks just great from the start. Nice pack with good resistance and feel. […]

The Cannoli By Amendola

There is a lot of hype around this cigar. Let’s see if it lives up to it! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I love a box pressed cigar. This is a great looking cigar overall. The cold draw tastes like honey and Weet-Bix; Any Australian knows exactly what this tastes like. […]

Crux Epicure Lonsdale

I’m a fan of this vitola – not bad, good size. I’ve heard of Crux cigars before but this is my first. I love trying a new brand – gotta smoke them all! Once lit I found that the draw was a little tight; nothing to worry about but I would like a bit more […]

Dictador Pavo Real Half Corona

Alcohol companies making cigars to pair? Seems like a good idea to me. I’m pretty sure this company would be pissed I’m pairing this with a pale ale, but to each their own. I used a v-cut to open this cigar which smokes pretty good. The smoke does taste a little hot and dry but […]

Acid Blondie

I can just see the cigar purists cringing right now. As you can see by this post I’m no purist. I really don’t mind smoking an infused cigar now and then – it’s fun to mix it up. Similar to many infused cigars you will find the cap is sugar sweet. The scent from fresh […]

Montecristo Open Junior

Back to back Cubans, let’s go! This is a solid little cigar – I’m assuming the pack is going to be tight. What is tight though is the double band; not bad at all. The first third has white pepper heat; there is not much else going on apart from the draw which is a […]

El Rey Del Mundo Choix Supreme

Let’s travel again back to Cuba, where it all began. Okay so I’ve never been to Cuba, but like many, my cigar journey did start there. Nearly every Cuban cigar I have smoked has a similar look, I don’t know how else to describe it than a rustic/real look. Obviously in a class of their […]
