The Viva Republica Culebra is limited to 1000 coffins and I was lucky enough to get my hands on one. I think the CigFed store will have a few in stock soon as well, but don't quote me on that. Check out the press release form Viva Republica for all the details on this release.
One of the main reasons I was excited about this review was because the LE…Continue

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.

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.…Continue

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.

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.
The Untamed by La Aurora is billed as the strongest cigar in the La Aurora portfolio. La Aurora is known more for medium strength cigars with lots of flavor like the Cien Anos. The Untamed is a cigar that was blended for the "modern palate" with lots of strength and full flavor to back it up.…Continue
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.

In February 2013, RoMa Craft Tobac announced a store exclusive for R. Field Wine Co. in Hawaii called the CroMagnon Venus. The Venus name stemmed from "fertility figurines are thought to have been at the center of a Cro-Magnon religious fertility practice. [E]vidence of the culture that…Continue

For those who have been following my reviews for a while, you’ll know by now that I’m a full blown Oliva fan boy. I have at least one box of ever Oliva Serie V Maduro ever release, along with Nubs and regular Serie Vs.
At the IPCPR in 2014 I was surprised to hear that Oliva was entering the infused market with their offerings of the Nub Cappuccino, Macchiato, and Espresso.
The Cappuccino is available in the Cigarillo (4”x30), 354 Rothschild…Continue
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…Continue
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.
