Dona Flor Corona Connecticut

Time to revisit this cigar! I’ve previously smoked the Churchill now time to try the Corona. Maybe not the best time for Corona… A nice authentic light brown wrapper with fresh scents of barnyard and cedar. I found barnyard flavours continued once lit, but now backed with sweet honey. After 20 minutes or so all […]

Fratello Inverso Corona Gorda

From fresh you’re greeted with scents of yeast and hops. It smells just like a Stella Artois; luckily this is one of my favourite beers! “Where the Navetta has an Ecuadorian Habano Oscuro wrapper, a Dominican viso binder, and Nicaraguan Jalapa fillers, the Navetta Inverso has an inverted version of this blend i.e. a Nicaraguan […]

Tabak Especial Robusto Oscuro

Not just another infused cigar. As expected, the Tabak Especial smells and tastes of coffee and milk chocolate from fresh. This cigar has a solid pack, nice dark wrapper and a shaggy foot which makes it a breeze to light up.  As you already know, this cigar is infused but a little different than most […]

This is the first Oliva cigar I have smoked. Straight out of the box it looks damn good.   Perfect looking wrapper! Nice and smooth with an oily sheen but a little on the soft side. The smell from fresh is alluring, sweet milk chocolate and leather. The first taste you get once lit is […]


Rocky Patel The Edge B52

Rocky’s ‘Edge’ range is quite impressive! I love how well made these cigars are; the wrapper is nice and smooth but also shows some deep veins. I like a cigar that looks like a leaf. Overall there are no soft spots till your right at the foot which smells of sweet brown sugar. Once cut, […]

Drew Estate Java Mint

Smells just like an after dinner mint. Now that comment really shows my age… The wrapper looked a little crumbly and delicate, but was actually the opposite being quite spongy. This wrapper also has a nice rustic look, but the lack of creativity on the band really fails for presentation. After opening with the punch, […]
