Review: Davidoff Nicaragua Belicoso

In 2013, Davidoff released a groundbreaking cigar. The cigar was the Davidoff Nicaragua, and it was the first cigar from the company that did not include Dominican tobacco since the company left to the Dominican Republic. The cigar showed the skills from the company in creating a blend that did not revolve around their Dominican tobacco, but rather from a country whose tobacco they rarely used. It was a big deal for the company, no doubt about it, but for the consumer it was Davidoff's way…

Review: D’Crossier Selection No. 512 Corona Gorda

One of the cigar companies that made a big impact for us last year was D’Crossier. When Santana Diaz started talking about a new line and new packaging we were very excited to talk with him at the IPCPR 2015 in New Orleans.

An important thing to note is that the D’Crossier Selection No. 512 Lancero is a different blend and is packaged in boxes.

The new line is packaged in what looks like an oversized peanut jar with a…

Review: Gunslinger Perdition

The Gunslinger Perdition is Kendall Culbertson's take on a San Andreas wrapped cigar.  Kendall went into great detail about the San Andreas wrapper during his recent appearance on CigarChat.  If you haven't seen it, you should really check it out.  Kendall was a blast to chat with and he has a wealth of tobacco knowledge.  We're hoping to have him do one of his blending seminars here on CigarFederation in 2016, so stay tuned.

Review: Alec Bradley Coyol

For the second year the Rocky Mountain Smokeout, the largest cigar event in Canada, was hosted just outside of my city of Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

One of the cigars that was provided from the Alec Bradley rep was the Coyol Robusto. I had not previously had the opportunity to smoke one, so it seemed the perfect opportunity to post a review.

The Alec Bradley Coyol was launched back at the 2014 IPCPR in Las Vegas.…

Review: Tatuaje H-Town Lancero (Stogies Exclusive)

The Tatuaje H-Town Lancero was made exclusively for Stogies World Class Cigars in Houston.  I've never been there, but from what I hear they have an impressive selection of lanceros.  And over the last few years they have added several "store exclusive" lanceros to their inventory.  The Tatuaje H-Town Lancero is the latest addition to what is becoming an impressive list.

Below is a list of all of the H-Town exclusives:

Review: La Flor Dominicana La Nox

At this year's IPCPR, La Flor Dominicana showcased a handful of new and/or returned offerings that were in line with what La Flor Dominicana has released in the past, but with those releases was a cigar that was truly new and different to the company. The cigar differs with the tobacco being used and above all else, the packaging. A departure from what many know La Flor Dominicana to be, I believe La Nox is one of the more interesting an exciting releases from the show. Enough with the…

Review: Tortuga 215 Reserva Connecticut

At the 2015 IPCPR in New Orleans we didn’t get much of a chance to smoke at the show. Our hectic schedule had us running from booth to booth getting out as many interviews as we could. One of the few cigars we did have a chance to smoke was the Tortuga 215 Reserva Connecticut from Victor Vitale. Rob, Jared and I all found it to be excellent with great construction and burn.

The Tortuga 215 Reserva Connecticut is releasing in three sizes. The Suave (5x52), Elegante (6x54) and the Regio…
