Review: La Aurora Barrel Aged Robusto

This La Aurora Barrel Aged Robusto has been sitting in my humidor since November of 2012.    Sadly this is another stick that I failed to track the originating source of.

 

Nose:

The nose on this smells of rich fermented tobacco with a hint of Spanish cedar.   I ended up spending several minutes taking in the aromas here before I finally toasted and lit up.

 

 

Construction:

I reviewed the La Aurora Barrel Aged in a…

Review: Alec Bradley Connecticut Robusto

I received this Alec Bradley Connecticut Robusto in the Alec Bradley, Willy Wonka styled 3-cigar box, at the AB Party in Las Vegas this year. I thought it was a genius little bit of marketing, and since it was a handout at a cigar event, and not a retail item, I saw no issues with it. I was able to get a second box that I have kept intact.

Review: Brick House Mighty Mighty Maduro Gordo

I picked up the Brick House Mighty Mighty Maduro Gordo from Atlantic Cigar along with some other singles I had been meaning to review.   This had been resting in my humidor since August of 2013.

 

Nose:

The nose on this Brick House is really engaging.  Barnyard, cedar, coffee and vanilla combine to leave you eager to light up.

 

 

Construction:

Review: Room 101 LTD Conjura Edition Papi Chulo

A few months back I did some weasel trading with Logan, and one of the cigars I came away with was this little Room 101 LTD Conjura Edition Papi Chulo. It’s a nice looking, small gauge, short smoke. The Room 101 LTD Conjura Edition has a nice, dark brown Honduran Habano wrapper. There is a pair of bands on this Room 101, that remind me of classic chrome truck emblems with black accents. It may be small, but it packs a lot of visual punch.…

My Week (In Smoking) In Review - 11/20/13

Another week, another installment of My Week in Review.  The weather is getting a bit cooler here in NJ, and with the holidays approaching, it seems like my schedule is a bit crowded as well so I only got to experience 4 cigars this week - Psyko Seven from Ventura, Nat Sherman 1930, Nomad Esteli Lot 1386 and a Cuban San Cristobal de La Habana.  I was really trying to knock off some cigars that have been on my "To Smoke" list this week, and I'm glad I did.…

Pre-Release Review: Drew Estate MUWAT Kentucky Fire Cured "Just A Friend"

This Drew Estate My Uzi Weighs a Ton (MUWAT) Kentucky Fire Cured "Just A Friend" Toro came to me by way of a bomb from a good friend ‘Evil Derek’ who I met on the Cigar Safari in April of 2013.  He was kind enough to send out some of these for review.   

I remember smelling the Kentucky Fire Cured tobacco leaves when I was on the Cigar Safari in April 2013.    Unfortunately I didn’t have the opportunity to smoke it, until now.

Review: La Palina EL Diario Kill Bill II

I've been hearing about the La Palina line of cigars for a long time and I was very excited to see the Kill Bill line show up in my local B&M a week ago. So, of course I picked up a Kill Bill and a Kill Bill II. I decided not to wait any longer to give one of these a try, and lit up the Kill Bill II a couple nights ago.

My Week (In Smoking) In Review - 11/12/13

Welcome to another installment of "My Week in Review".  All five cigars that I will discuss this week - Debonaire, BOTL 2013 Corona, Nica Rustica and the Tristans were brand new to me so it was an interesting week.  To be fair, I had smoked a Nica Rustica sample from IPCPR, but I found this to be a bit different.  Let's get into why...…
