Announcing the Next Throw Down Project


Lets get ready to rumble!

We will be facing off with rcigars in a Throw Down battle. Yep, get excited. This will be very similar to the first Throw Down between Dojo and CigFed. Each side has a cigar blend they believe to be the best. The project will come in ten count bundles with five cigars of the CigFed Blend and five cigars from the rcigars blend. After smoking both…

Review: RoMa Craft Tobac CroMagnon Firecracker

One of the fun projects in the cigar industry is a recurring annual release from Two Guys Smoke Shop. Originally launched in 2007, David Garofalo had Jose Don “Pepin” Garcia produce a short cigar with a pig tail cap approximating a fuse. That release has become a tradition, changing factories through various incarnations.

The 2016 release comes from RoMa Craft Tobac and Skip Martin as the CroMagnon blend, produced in a 3-1/2x50…

Review: Charter Oak Broadleaf

There was a lot of excitement in 2015 when Nick Melillo announced he was starting  Foundation Cigar Company.

The Tabernacle and Charter Oak 2016 cigars prominently feature Broadleaf wrappers.

Nick described the Charter Oak as his homage to Connecticut, and Nick’s grandfather. The box features the Charter Oak tree, discovered in the 12th…

Review: Powstanie Habano Perfecto

Produced out of the Nica Sueno factory, the Powstanie Habano and Broadleaf wrapper options came about as sampler packs that were mailed out to customers. The customers voted for their favorite, and the Habano won by a slim margin. Since both were popular they decided to release both. Originally just released in the Cigar Hustler store, it was made available to other retailers in November 2015.

The symbol for Powstanie pays homage to the Kotwica, which was the emblem for…

Review: Matilde Quadrata

In late Spring, Matilde Cigars announced their third line as a company. The line was to be showcased at the 2016 IPCPR and ship to retailers right afterwards. It would be the company's first box pressed cigar and it would be a cigar that they said would fall between Renacer and Oscura in terms of strength, body and flavors. I have been a fan of everything the company has done since they hit the market in 2014, and I have great respect for the Seijas Family and appreciate the blends that Jose…
