Shrapnel Sweet

Shrapnel Sweet Cigars

Quick and tasty. The ends are dipped for a sugary-sweet taste. Mild smoke. I smoke these while driving. They help me stay awake as I do not do well driving great distances. Anyone up for a road trip? Count me in. Just wake me up when we get there. These jewels come 50 to a…

Cohiba Robustos Cigar

The Cohiba Robustos is one of the most demanded Habanos in the market.Thick, smooth, medium bodied. Overall a good smoke. A bit expensive.
