Muestra De Saka Nacatamale

Another Saka special packed in its own personal coffin – now that’s pretty cool! As soon as you open the coffin you’re transported into your backyard with the BBQ ablaze. This cigar smells of meaty, smoky cedar. Yum. This cigar doesn’t even need the silk foot band – the smooth dark chocolate wrapper and pigtail […]

Warped Serie Gran Reserva 1988

Okay, let’s see what a rating of #3 (2019) from Cigar Aficionado gets you! Quality looks good with a smooth wrapper and firm even pack, but what does 976212 mean? All right, then. Keep your secrets. As soon as the flame reaches this cigar it lights rapidly and produces great amounts of thick smoke. Flavours […]

BOTL

Could there be a better name for a cigar? Ok, ok I know what half of you are saying. A very sweet scent of milk chocolate from fresh, with a nice BOTL band. The cigar I’ve never heard of with a name every cigar smoker knows. After fifteen minutes I’m impressed with the complex varied […]

Rocky Patel Number 6 Corona

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 […]
