Since 2012, La Palina has worked with El Titan de Bronze in Miami, Florida to create the annual release of the La Palina Goldie. No more than 25,000 cigars are released in a year, it was originally less when the program started and all of those cigars are rolled by one individual, Maria Sierra. Maria is a Category 9 roller, and for 32 years she worked at El Lagutio in Havana, Cuba, rolling true Cohibas. The concept of smoking a cigar that is rolled by one individual is brilliant and amazing,…Continue

When I think Nick Melillo, I think Connecticut Broadleaf. So, naturally, I was rather pumped when I heard that Foundation Cigars was introducing the Broadleaf wrapped Tabernacle at IPCPR.
The Tabernacle hit stores in early August and is available in six sizes:
At this year's IPCPR, Davidoff announced that they would be expanding the Davidoff Grand Cru Series. The Grand Cru Series has been on the market for years and it is an old school line in many ways. Until this year the line did not have offerings with a ring gauge over 43, you can see why it may not be popular with Americans and do well overseas, but this year they announced that they would release two offerings with ring gauges of 52 and 54. Since then the cigars have been on the market, and…Continue

The cigar features a change in wrappers, moving from a darkish Habano Cafe to a Rosado Claro and the swap helps "the blend really pop while also showing an increase in strength."

Yesterday, Espinosa Cigars informed Cigar Coop and Cigar Federation that the 601 Brand would be making a come back. Little did we know that the comeback would be of such magnitude!

The brand is really known for the Blue, La Bomba and Warhead offerings, but over the years the Red and Green have remained in production as well. With…Continue
