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.

Joya Antano CT Corona Gorda

The Joya Antano Dark Corojo is definitely one of my favorite cigars; now let’s see what the  Connecticut version has to offer. The fresh scents of sweet barnyard, cocoa and butter smell incredible. The Connecticut wrapper is delicate and smooth, with a second band ‘CT’ that is probably not necessary because this wrapper cannot be […]
