Review: Fleur de la Reine (Maduro)

The Fleur de la Reine has a nice looking maduro wrapper on it. The construction seems to be right on and the cold draw has notes of earth, with a little bit of caramel in the background. Feels like a very solid cigar, and seems to be packed with tobacco sweetness. I know absolutely nothing about this cigar, so I’m interested to see how it comes out.

Review: CLE Plus

This CLE Plus has a very understated look. A thin & simple, yet attractive, red and chrome band sits around a milk chocolate colored wrapper. There are a couple larger veins and you can see the stretching on the wrapper, but it still has nice construction and a clean look. The pre-light aroma is very pleasing. With notes of spicy cedar and some great, dried fruit sweetness.

Review: Drew Estate Cigar Safari Custom Blend 2015

On my recent Cigar Safari trip at the end of January in 2015 I had the opportunity to blend a cigar at the Drew Estate 2 factory. At my past visits I went for something medium-plus and very peppery, and I thought this would be a great opportunity to change things up.

As we toured the factory we were shown pilones of Florida Sun Grown tobacco owned by Jeff Borysiewicz. As we picked up the leaves and…
