Reinado Cigars has confirmed to Cigar Coop that they have begun to ship the Reinado Grand Empire Reserve Premium Collection to retailers. This line adds three additional sizes to the…
The only problem with the Liga Privada line is that they are hard to find. If a shop does have them in stock, they are going to be sold out in minutes, or they will limit your purchase to just one or two…Continue
Rummaging through the samples I brought back from IPCPR 2013, I came across the JC Newman Brick House Maduro, in robusto (5″X54). Previously only available in 6″X60, this new offering piqued my interest. I tried the Mighty Mighty Maduro last year, but can’t say…Continue

I am a huge fan of mini cigars. As a musician, I am always in and out of bars playing gigs, yet never have the time to sit down and enjoy a cigar when I am out and about. Accordingly, I am always on the lookout for small cigars that last 15-30 minutes, and do not tar up. Logan took me to meet Eddie Ortega at IPCPR, and when we sat down, he made it a point to gift us some samples of his new mini line. During our conversation, I mentioned how much I love minis, and that I would do a writeup…Continue
While at the IPCPR show last month I managed to end up with samples of theAzan line of cigars from Roberto Duran. The booth was busy the times I came across it, but a friend gave me some samples, and I think there was someone around the booth handing them out. These were highly recommended and I was looking forward to smoking them, but I…Continue

As they said in their recent press release, “CAO Cigars wants its fans to go full-throttle with a bold new blend called Flathead.” The CAO Flathead conjures up images of Greasers, Socs, Ponyboy and Sodapop, pinup girls and most of all, cars. The tie in with cars is pretty clear when you consider the names of the different…Continue

Sometimes you just have to change things up to make life more interesting. La Gloria Cubana made itself into one of the fixtures of the cigar industry with Dominican products, notably its popular Serie R, which was introduced in 1999. This year, LGC has pushed the boundaries – literally – of Serie R by rolling out two new lines, Serie R Black and Serie R Esteli. The calling…Continue

I recently had the opportunity to try a couple of new cigars from Miami Cigar, one being today’s tobacco du jour – the Nestor Miranda Special Selection Exclusivo Regional (Midwest). Assistant Director of Marketing Barry Stein, who provided the samples, tells me these cigars are a limited…Continue

Alright FedHeds, I have begun playing a new game, one which I’ve decided you get to watch, if you’re interested. I graduated high school at 115 pounds. I got married when I was 23 at 160 pounds. I am now 15 years married, and I am neither 115 nor 160 pounds. I would like to change that, and I have tried on and off over the years, probably like many of you. I have no health problems other than simply being a 160 pound man in a 228 pound body. However, my wife has Type 2 diabetes, and is…Continue

The Jameson Cigar Co. Santos de Miami Box Press Lancero. We're off to a great start and I've only given you the name and vitola! I know the large ring gauge fade is in full swing, but you just can't beat a good lancero. The Santos de Miami is the first lancero I have ever had that was in a box press. And the edges on this Santos de Miami are very sharp, just as those on the T.L. Johnson sharp box press. The Santos de Miami is made from all Dominican grown tobaccos and is all tied up…Continue
This is another cigar that came to me via the Puff.com raffle last month. So much good stuff kept filling my mailbox, and, believe it or not, it’s not over yet! The Joya de Nicaragua Cabinetta (JdN) came in early and hung out in my tupperdor for a bit. A short time later, there was a review over on My First Cigar that really got me more interested in this dual-wrapped cigar. While I only had this for a couple weeks, the person that…Continue

OK, it’s time to get back on track! Monday was Labor Day, the last Monday holiday that most of us get off for the year, and the unofficial end of summer. Of course, those of us who are in massive denial will swear to you that September 21st is the end of summer, so there’s still 3 weeks left! Personally, since August was unseasonably cool, I think we need at least another month of summer! What can I say, I like summer!
Monday my wife, her dad and I went to …Continue

As I mentioned in one of the summaries of IPCPR 2013, Felix Assouline was a company I was unfamiliar with before the show. I ran into my friend Benny Gomez, who has partnered with them to field his…Continue
This particular Joya de Nicaragua came from the Drew Estate Safari in April of 2013. It was my first experience taking the various leaves and trying to combine them to create something delicious. I would say that we spent at least an hour with viso, seco and ligero leaves in various combinations. Smelling the leaves in a bunch, lighting them to see if the combined bunch would be great together. I felt it was an excellent education…Continue

First and foremost, Matt and I want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the support the cigar community has given over the last two weeks. It has been inspiring to see how people from many different cigar sites have rallied around this cause. It has been amazing each day to open my email to find another manufacturer, who has heard about what we are doing, and wants to support Project Manana.
I wanted to take a…Continue
