Today marks the second anniversary of Amateurreviews.online and my continued love of cigars. This also coincides with my 100th review! I honestly thought before I started this blog that a cigar was a cigar, but oh how wrong I was. I am continuously learning and experiencing new flavours that I never would have thought a […]Read More 2 Years Old Today!
And the winner of the largest band goes to… This is the first Alec Bradley cigar that I have tried and my 100TH cigar review to date. When I did a little research I was pleasantly surprised with the honest nonchalant approach this brand has taken, seeking enjoyment over accolade.
