The Crux Cigars Ninfamaniac has had my attention since first sight. The it's a Lancero size, but in a figurado shape. Not to mention a band that is simply awesome! Love the nude fairy, on the brown background. But of course I would, it's very much in line with my Art Deco collecting. The wrapper is a somewhat veiny, medium brown, with great construction. And the aroma has a very interesting floral note. The cold draw has a mild floral flavor with some wood.…Continue

You keep that Cohiba because today I am talking about what I believe to be the greatest robusto coming out of Cuba. It has always done well in terms of ratings by critics and there is reason for that. There is a greatHabanos smoker that I know who swears by these robustos and he believes them…
This Lou Rodriguez Edición Premier has a mottled, dark brown wrapper in a relatively soft, box-press. It has quite a rough exterior from the bunching inside, but the wrapper itself has minimal veins and smooth seams. Although, I can feel various soft mad hard spots throughout. The wrapper smells like a sweet mix of leather & tobacco. The cold draw is effortless, with notes of leather and earth.…Continue

Sancho Panza is a brand I have very little experience with honestly. I have only had a Belicoso once, and never cared for it. I still had to try the Non Plus though, given the insane corona whore I am when it comes to Habanos. I really want to know Sancho Panza, who he is, and what his whole story is. It seems like there is little information in regard to Mr. Panza and his Habanos brand, other than a literary reference. Who knows who came up with the name, but…Continue

Man I love this time of year. This is the time when all the companies are teasing new releases and I start drooling like a Pavlov dog over what may be coming out of the Domincan Republic, like anything made by a family named Kelner, and my favorite Nicaraguan blenders. That being said, given my love for the Regius brand and the rankings of Akhil’s blends on my Top 13…Continue

Being one of the residing Presidents of the Upmann Slim with the Tilted Brim Fan Club, I am always on the lookout for Upmann smokes that deliver the love. I had always collected the No 2 vitola, the Magnum 46, and several smaller sizes including the Majestic. For some reason, I never got around to trying the Connoisseur 1, even though it had a reputation that was impeccable amongst the Upmann faithful and forum nuts. When I finally grabbed a box from 2011, I was…Continue
