Davidoff Geneve

After establishing an even light the core of mild pepper gave way to a creamy, woody taste. After about a third of the way through I began to taste expresso and bitter chocolate. Traces of sweetness come and go. Smoke is solid, draw smooth and the burn even. All-in-all not worth $18.00 I’m sad to…

Don Pepin Garcia El Centurion

I haven’t written about a cigar in a while. However, the El Centurion which I smoked this evening was very good! It lit well, and burned nice and even and smoked smoothly. Not so spicy with a hint of pepper, a bit sweet, medium leather body. Tasty and I’ll say it again, a smooth smoke.…

CAO Gold Maduro

CAO Gold Marudo Cigar

It’s been a while since I smoked one of these. A few years in fact. After writing this review, just before posting it I discovered that I reviewed it back in 2012. All I can say is that I’m still pleasantly impresses with this jewel. This cigar is mellow with just a hint of coffee…

Romeo y Julieta | 1875 Bully

This cigar burned evenly and held a firm ash the first third of the way through the smoke. Pleasantly mild, in fact I was expecting quite the opposite. Had some problems the last third with the draw tightening up. Overall taste was consistent with a hint of pepper, almonds, and, well… olives? Weird I know…

ACID Toast

ACID Toast Cigar

Over the Memorial Day weekend I smoked an ACID cigar by Drew Estate. The tobaccos in ACID cigars are cured in areas called cuarto aromaticos (aroma rooms) for months prior to rolling – these rooms are lined with over 150 different essential herbs, oils and botanicals that get infused into the cigars over time. Handmade…

The Asylum Lobotomy Cigar

Asylum Labotomy Cigar

I tried the new Asylum Lobotomy cigar and found it to be a little sweet and full flavored. I didn’t get any flavors resembling ground beef (as described in the press release), thankfully, as I think that would have grossed me out. LOL. Beefy with a bit of spice (pepper) to be sure. Stronger than…

Pre-light was tight and a bit bitter at first. Mild, creamy and woody with a hint of spicy sweetness. Overall however it did not stand out as a flavorful smoke. Smooth and mild to be sure. The filler was well packed and burned evenly. The draw was good throughout. Would I get another? No. Not…

Shrapnel Black

Shrapnel Black Cigars

These little sticks have a few pinches of Black Cavendish pipe tobacco spread throughout its filler. Not bad but I like the sugary-sweet taste of the Shrapnel Sweet which I’ve been smoking now for several years. I always keep a box or two on hand and grab a few sticks on the way out the…

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…
