Review: Sindicato Hex

This Sindicato Hex starts off by looking good. A very well constructed perfecto, with clean seams and some small veins. The "fuse" style pigtail at the cap is a nice looking touch as well. The pre-light aromas are very rich! Lots of leather, cocoa & earth. Which, is backed up by a sweet, chocolately leather flavor on the cold draw.

Hex by Sindicato Cigars

Size: 6.25 x 52

Vitola: Perfecto…

Review: Tatuaje TAA 2014 Exclusive

I look forward to the Tatuaje TAA release every year and the 2014 edition was no different.  This all started for me when the TAA 2012 blew me away.  This prompted me to seek out the 2011 which was also fantastic.  The 2013 was good, but not on the same level as 2012.  So I was eager to see if the Tatuaje TAA 2014 lived up to its predecessors.

As you probably know, TAA stands for the Tobacconist Association of America.  Ever year they have some exclusive releases from different…

Review: Byron Reserva Serie Siglo XIX Reserva 4 Años

Byron Serie Siglo XIX Reserva 4 Años, is not a cigar I will see many of. Byron cigars are not an everyday smoke. Not easy to find and not priced for most peoples daily budget.

Review: Rocky Patel Edge Sumatra

I’m a huge fan of the Rocky Patel Edge line which includes the Corojo, Maduro, Candela, Sumatra and Lite lines. At any given time I have at least 15 Rocky Patel Edge Maduro’s aging in my humidor. When I heard about the Rocky Patel Edge Sumatra I was eager to get my hands on them. Unfortunately as a Canadian, it’s not just as easy as walking into my local B&M to pick some up. So on a previous trip to Denver, in January 2014, I went into…
