Wow! Its been a while since my last visit the web site, it has grown quite a bit! Very impressive. Just picked me up a few Ezra Zion smokes for the weekend look forward to a few puffs.
Inspired by the brand’s roots in Nashville, the theme surrounding the CAO Concert seems like a no-brainer. From the guitar pick band, to the music infused names for the sizes, or the cigar box made to look like a classic Marshall amp, the CAO Concert, blended by their head of product development, Rick Rodriguez, really grabs your attention.

This is my review of the Oliva V Melanio which comes in the Robusto vitola.
I was excited to try out this new release from Oliva. After considerable examination all I picked up is a peaty earth and some dried fruit.

I was expecting a strong nose on this given the reported strength. Instead what I picked up was a light mixture of nuts, and an oak / cedar combination.
Flawless construction. I would expect nothing less from…Continue

The obligatory summer time cold has passed from my family, so now that my head is clear I thought it’d be a great day for a review! Today’s cigar is the “American Born Cubans,” or ABC, from Luis Sanchez at La Tradicion Cubana. This is a new cigar from Luis, although a line was produced several years ago under the name, which was lost to a devastating fire at his…Continue

A few months back we surveyed one half of Macanudo’s recent venture into the 60 ring gauge world, the Cafe Gigante. Today, we take on the other half, the Maduro Gigante. While the Cafe hews to Macanudo’s established reputation for mild-mannered sticks, the Maduro aims for a fuller-bodied experience.
Cigar Stats: The Maduro Gigante uses a blend of…Continue
