Rocky Patel Number 6 Corona

I’m a big fan of Rocky but the presentation misses the mark this time. I’m a little confused with this cigar; it’s like they spent all the time designing this ridiculous band, then ran out of time for the name. Hey let’s just use the batch number, that’ll do it… Okay then, let’s judge the […]

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, […]
