News: Drew Estate MUWAT adds 7x70 Vitola

According to Halfwheel, Drew Estate is going to be adding a 7 x 70 vitola to their original MUWAT line. I know there is a trend in the market, which is moving towards smaller and larger ring gauges. MUWAT already comes in larger ring gauges. I think it would be interesting to see what the MUWAT is like in a smaller vitola. Just a thought.

In addition to the MUWAT Kentucky Fire…

Review: CAO OSA Lot 50

I know a lot of people don't seem to like the large manufacturers, such as General Cigar, but CAO makes a few sticks that I really enjoy, specifically, the La Traviata & Brazilia. Now you can add the OSA to that. I've heard a lot of things about this blend, and I even seem to recall it getting some really high ratings, from multiple sources. So, on to…

93 Rating for TANTRUM from SethsHumidor.com!

I have always said that if the opportunity presented itself for me to make a cigar I would do so. I have also admitted with that statement that I would end up making vitola offerings in the line that would not appeal to the masses. It would not do well commercially, but would be a cigar that spoke to the true cigar enthusiasts. I am sorry, but at the end of the day a majority of cigar smokers are misinformed on what defines a terrific cigar. They are all about going for a big cigar and do…

This year I will miss IPCPR due o the fact that business is going wonderfully and I need to stay at the shop.
