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…Continue

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…Continue
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…Continue

Happy Monday. All the design submissions have been received. I need you to take two minutes and vote on the sticker which will grace the packaging.
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…Continue
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).
Check out our…Continue
