Arandoza, Rosalones, Nica Puro and an Asylum 13 Ogre Cigar

I started out the second half of the week revisiting the Arandoza Blue Label Robusto from Arandoza Cigars.  This brand is made at Erik Espinoza’s La Zona factory in Esteli, it’s a Nicaraguan puro with a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper and Nicaraguan binder and fillers. I smoked some of these last year and enjoyed them quite a bit, as I enjoyed this one again. They’ve fancied up the bands on these, making them harder to get a good…

Habnos Review: San Cristobal El Principe

               You want history?  That is what my man Tuna is for.  Tuna is a world-traveled man of mystery that will dig deep on a marca and give the reader all the pertinent information on a brand.  Me? I come from the aqueducts, so you get raw dog review, styles unbreakable and shatterproof like my man ODB.  The following review took place while listening to old men whiff putts in the afternoon and cursing their golf games, while I sat back and enjoyed one of the finer things in…

Review: Brun del Re Gold Special Edition Robusto Inmenso

While at IPCPR 2013 I visited a booth with an interesting characteristic from the others. Costa Rican tobacco. That's not a common thing to see in my world, so I had to procure some for sampling and review. Well, it has taken me some time to get to them, so at the time of smoking they had 265 days of rest. ;) It is definitely worth noting that this is the "Special Edition", which although, it is manufactured in Costa Rica, it does not have CR tobacco. The core line Gold has Costa Rican…

Partagas 1845 Extra Oscuro and Extra Fuerte Cigars

I’ve been sampling the new additions to the Partagas 1845 line this week. The regular 1845 was released about 2 years ago and I really enjoyed them, I thought it was a solid addition to an already excellent line. This year they’ve come out with two line extensions, the Extra Fuerte and Extra Oscuro. As they’ve recently done with the La Gloria Cubana Serie R Esteli and Black, they’ve earmarked the Extra Fuerte for Brick and Mortar stores and the Extra Oscuro for the Internet and catalog…

Esteli with the Elephant Hunter: Part Six - Curing Barns & Holy Shit Balls

Lets talk about the holy shit balls part first. This will be the last segment in this series for several reasons, but here is the main one. I was invited to the new media trip at Drew Estate, and will be picking this series back up and cover the rest of the topics I want to cover, based on the Drew Estate. It just makes sense since Drew Estate just launched DE 2 (pre-industry) and have a huge cigar factory. See, I would never leave my loyal readers out in the cold :)

I will be the…

Review: Blind Cuban Cigar Tasting Contest - Cigar #1

This cigar was part of a 5 cigar sampler pack that I ordered from an online Cuban cigar supplier.   They run a contest each year where you buy a sampler of cigars, smoke them blind, and then have to make a guess as to what they are.  If you get all 5 correct you get a significant gift certificate through them. 

Unfortunately I don’t have as much experience smoking Cuban cigars as most of the other members, but it sounded like a fun contest so I signed up.…

Small Announcement and Review: Cuba Aliados Cabinet Selection Toro (6 x 52)

Well it is my joy to announce that I will be doing weekly reviews for Cigar Federation as I transition into a trial moderator position.  However, Logan is really putting the heat on me to see what I can produce over the next few months, so I need a little help.  I need you all to let Logan know how awesome and cool I am.  You might be saying, “But Tyler, lying is bad”.  But I don’t care, I say do it anyway!

A Relajado, a CAO Flathead, and a Byron Cigar

Thursday I revisited the Relajado Robusto, which is a house brand from Best Cigar Prices. The cigar is made by General cigar, the trademark rounded head gives that away.  Despite the band being pretty cheesy, and looking like a cheap bundle cigar instead of a reasonably priced boxed cigar, this was pretty darned nice. It reminded me a little of the …

Review: Tatuaje The Mummy

First third: I'm getting a lot of sweet leather and nice smooth black pepper. A tiny hint of cherry compliments the sweetness of the Macallan very well . A really good pairing so far . More to come later!

Halfway point starts out by ramping up the pepper, and even adding in some cayenne pepper into the mix. That cherry is gone…

COVERING YOUR ASH: FRATELLO TORO

The cigar community, whether it be globally, nationally, or locally, is commonly referred to as a "brotherhood," and the popular acronym "B.O.T.L." stands for "Brothers Of The Leaf." Even at my local B&M (Brick & Mortar) cigar shop the members frequently address each other as “brother.” So when I heard…
