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, […]

Mi Querida Triqui Traca No. 552

Apparently the name means ‘Firework’ so let’s see if this cigar goes off with a bang! The toothy wrapper just glistens of oil, a little bumpy with some sharp veins throughout. The pack is a little on the firm side; the cold draw has light resistance and hints of cedar and leather. The first third […]

Acid 20 Robusto

Sweet and spicy Christmas treat.   This cigar is seriously box pressed; nearly a perfect rectangle and the corners are very sharp! The wrapper had a perfect toothy oily sheen, and smells nearly exactly like a Gudang garam kretek cigarette. Unfortunately they had a day off creating the band; its budget and to be honest […]

Deadwood Crazy Alice

The reason I purchased this cigar is because I have never seen a pig tailed pyramid, not to mention one with a closed foot before. I love the look of this cigar; nice dark toothy wrapper and a ‘crazy’ band. The scent from fresh is simply floral. The pack and draw is very tight, but […]

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 […]

Arturo Fuente Reserva Don Carlos

Barnyard bling sums this cigar up nicely. Barnyard scents of hay, wood and earth are the first things you will notice (well, apart from the prestige regal band which is a nice touch). This cigar feels a little on the dry side; a little crackly once pressed, but the pack is consistent from cap to […]

Archimedes 650

I’ve tried this cigar previously, but lost my review so why not try it again. I endeavour to try all Nicaraguan cigars and I am rarely disappointed. This cigar looks great from it’s smooth wrapper and firm pack, to its respectable size at 6″ x 50 First flavours are of smooth tobacco and leather; a […]
