Review: Viva Republica Edicion Limitada Culebra

One of the main reasons I was excited about this review was because the LE…

Review: Cubanacan Habano

I've been trying to think if I have tried any Cubanacan to date, and I can't think of any. So, I am going into this without any prior opinions on what to expect. The looks are top notch and I'm a sucker for a torpedo. And this one looks amazing. I'm ready to get going.

Review: Drew Estate Central Park Stroll

I think it's fair to say that the Drew Estate Central Park Stroll was the first pipe tobacco that really got my attention.  I was exposed to all the DE pipe tobaccos (made by Scandinavian Tobacco Group) during IPCPR 2014, but I didn't really sit down and fire up a bowl for a few months.  As luck would have it, the first tin of DE pipe tobacco that I opened was the Central Park Stroll.…

Review: Nestor Miranda Collection Maduro (Red)

To close out my reviews on the Nestor Miranda Collection, it's going to be the Maduro. I'm a big maduro fan and this one has a lot to keep up with after the first two. Especially that Habano, the Connecticut was good but that Habano is still winning. Let's see what happens.

Review: Alec Bradley Black Market Filthy Hooligan

I purchased the Filthy Hooligan back in 2013 along with other candela cigars I intended to review. 2013 and then 2014 both came and went before I had a chance to prioritize this in my review list. It seemed fitting to try and line this up with St. Patrick’s Day.

The Alec Bradley Filthy Hooligan was first released in 2013 to only 2,000 boxes each at 22 count in a single toro vitola.

Review: Nestor Miranda Collection Connecticut (Blue)

After a little hiccup in my schedule last week, sorry about that guys, I continue my way through this collection. I've become a pretty big Connecticut fan the last couple years, so I'm always excited to try new blends. And after a pleasant experience with the Habano, I have great expectations.

Review: Oliva Nub Café Cappuccino

Review: Cornell and Diehl Autumn Evening

The Autumn Evening from Cornell & Diehl has received consistently high ratings for awhile, so I decided to give it a shot.  This is part of a Pipe Dummies push to find an aromatic tobacco that Logan will enjoy.  It may be an exercise in futility, but I'm willing to give it a shot for science!

Cornell and & Diehl is one of the bigger names in pipe tobacco.  They produce a ton of pipe tobaccos of…

Press Release: L'Atelier Imports announces the Limited Release, Côte d'Or

Although the market is filled with limited release cigars, L'Atelier Imports has brazened the landscape with only one project to date that would fall into that category, a limited run for IPCPR attendees known as Extension de la Racine.  But when the Garcias offer you the opportunity to use a small amount of coveted Pelo de Oro from one of their farms, you don't pass up the opportunity to create something extremely special. 



Thus, Côte d'Or was born.
