Review: Rocky Patel Fifty-Five Corona

This year at the IPCPR there were a significant number of new releases from manufacturers. Rocky Patel certainly didn’t buck that trend, with a significant list of new products, limited edition products, and line extensions.

One of the special new releases was the Rocky Patel Fifty-Five. Created to commemorate Rocky’s 55th birthday, it utilizes tobaccos that are aged 6 – 7 years. Rocky Patel himself created the blend, and Hamlet Paredes came up with the unique sizes. Each…

Review: Casa Fernández AGANORSA Connecticut

2016 has been a big year for Casa Fernández and at IPCPR the company had several new releases of their own. The company is well known for their work with individuals in the industry, but when it comes to their own brand they don't get the attention they deserve. From line extensions to brand new lines, it was the biggest years I can remember for Casa Fernández. Even with the announcement of these new cigar lines and vitolas, the company quietly announced that they were now using a second…

Review: The Upsetters by Foundation Cigar Company

After a trip to Kingston, Jamaica for Bob Marley’s 70th birthday, Nick Melillo started searching Jamaica for cigar tobacco. Nick created The Upsetters using a traditional Caribbean technique of herbal infusion, with both Jamaican and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos.

The red, gold and green packaging on The Upsetters is an homage to reggae culture. The art on the inside of the box is inspired by…

Review: 2016 Quesada Oktoberfest Das Brauhaus

The folks over at Quesada Cigars have done a great job of making their brand synonymous with this time of year.  When I think about Oktoberfest I think of malty beers and Quesada cigars.  Tatuaje owns Halloween and Quesada owns Oktoberfest.

2015 was the year that Quesada introduced two limited edition Nicaraguan versions of their Oktoberfest blend.  The Das Brauhaus is one of those Nicaraguan blends and it was one of my favorites last year.  This year's blend is said to be the same…

Review: Aguila

Recently,iHavanas released a new brand that is their brand. It is called Aguila and it is made in Nicaragua. Little information is given out about the blend right now, but iHvanas asked for my thoughts and I told them I would be more than glad to share them. I did not know any information about the blend before I smoked it, so I was going in blind but I was quickly surprised by how much I enjoyed the cigar. Information about the cigar is…

Review: Nomad SA-17 Coronita

Fred describes the profile of the SA-17 as being medium full, like a C-276, but with the added richness of San Andres tobacco.

The C-276 ranks as one of my favorite sticks Fred has done to date. Hearing that the profile brings that sort of body to the table had me very excited for the cigars to hit the market.

Sold in 21 count boxes, they’re available in 4 vitolas. A Corinita (5-1/2x46), Robusto (5x50), Toro (6x50) and a Shorty (4x46).
