Group Review: Foundry Ramon Allones 550

General Cigars announced the addition of Ramon Allones and Bolivar to the Foundry Cigars lineup leading up to IPCRP 2015 this past July.  With all the news about Cuba and the unavoidable speculation that Cuban cigars will soon be available at your local 7-Eleven store, these additions to the Foundry line received a lot of attention.

In 2013, Andre Farkas of Viaje released a unique Super Shot vitola in the White Label Project portfolio. At the time, all of Viaje's releases were small batch, but this was a unique release as it was the first Super Shot release in the White Label Project portfolio. The cigar was called the Viaje White Label Project Super Shot 12 Gauge, and it was a cigar that was an accident.

Review: Evil Genius White Chapel

Evil Genius Cigars debuted at the 2014 IPCPR with two blends, Black Chapel and White Chapel. Today, I am reviewing the White Chapel. This is a new brand to me, as I don't remember hearing anything about them until meeting them at this years show in New Orleans. But when I met the company, I received this perfectly sized vitola, and figured it would be perfect to review as we enter into the colder months. But, enough of that. On to the smoke...After this video of Rob…
