COVERING YOUR ASH: EZRA ZION TANTRUM P.A.

The Tantrum P.A. by the Ezra Zion Cigar Company, makers of the popular Jamais Vu and FHK, is the follow-up release to the limited edition, original Tantrum (my #1 cigar of 2013). The P.A. in the name stands for “Passive Aggressive” which the company says is in reference to the “strength-mild-strength…

COVERING YOUR ASH: Miró Momentos

Cigar smokers tend to think the industry is entirely the province of the Americas, but upon closer inspection we come to realize that’s really not the case. There is plenty of high-quality leaf grown in Africa and Asia, and there is, of course, no shortage of smokers around the world, along with cigar makers who…

COVERING YOUR ASH: SINDICATO MADURO

Back in June we reviewed the Sindicato, the flagship release from Sindicato Cigars, a company formed by a group of retailers with the sole intention of putting retailers and consumers first. Today we take a look at the Sindicato Maduro, released back in October of this year. The Maduro joins its Natural…

Review: Villa Zamorano by Maya Selva Cigars

Back in November Gabriel Alvarez was on Cigar Chat representing Maya Selva Cigars, and yours truly won a fiver of the Villa Zambrano No 15.  Honestly up until this show, I knew absolutely nothing about the Maya Selva brand.  So I was really thrilled to be a winner and really looked forward to trying…

Side By Side Review: The Crowned Heads - Mason Dixon Project North/South

So, I've seen reviews on both cigars, but not a comparison of the two. So since Shooter bombed me with one of each, I decided to smoke them both in the same day and compare. Here are my findings. 

First Up: The South…

COVERING YOUR ASH: EZRA ZION FHK

The Ezra Zion FHK, released in January of this year, is part of the company’s Honor Series. The initials stand for “Fathers of Hoover and Kelly,” after the owners, Kyle Hoover and Chris Kelly. This is our fourth review of an Ezra Zion cigar. The first one, Jamais Vu (then called Inception) was our #1 cigar…

Review: (Quick Look) Exactus Maduro

This brand was recently introduced to my B&M and I figured I'd give them a go and see what they deliver.

So what I learned about Exactus Cigars is that they are produced in the Dominican Republic at a small factory called Tabacalera El Artista.  The company currently offers 4…

COVERING YOUR ASH: BLACK ABYSS

Jochy Blanco has cranked out a few in recent years with the likes of Boutique Blends sticks such as Aging Room and Swag, and he has teamed up with retailer JR Cigars to produce Black Abyss. With a track record like his, who wouldn’t want to take a crack at this Dominican Republic-made product? Count me…

COVERING YOUR ASH: ARANDOZA WHITE LABEL

Not a lot of information is available on Arandoza Cigars, maker of today’s CYA subject, the White Label, but what I do know about this relatively new brand is that they are made at the La Zona factory in Esteli, Nicaragua, home to the very popular Espinosa Cigars.

COVERING YOUR ASH: 1875 ROMEO Y JULIETA BULLY

What’s in a name? In the case of this particular stick, plenty. The 1875 Romeo y Julieta is one of Altadis USA’s newest releases – intended for brick-and-mortars only – but you may be scratching your head, thinking you’ve seen (or smoked) a cigar that goes by that name. You would be wrong, but only by…

Joya Red Review





I’ve been eagerly waiting for the Joya Red to come into retailers, so lucky for me I got a chance to weasel a few from the Joya de Nicaragua crew at the Rocky Mountain Cigar Festival last August. Poor Richard’s is getting these in, so if what I’m about to say sounds good to you, go pick some up at…

Review: Tantrum PA

 

Before I begin my review, let me start with a “Tantrum” of sorts.  This past February I discovered the original release of the Tantrum (presando pequeno).  I recall it like it was yesterday.  I was at Cigar-ette City, the Peoples Plaza (Newark, DE) location of Gary Griffiths many walk-in…

Review: Surrogates Satin Glove by L'Atelier Imports

Disclaimer: what follows is my attempt to review a cigar. In reality, however, this is nothing more than my entry into the contest for some la barba purple!

Surrogates Cigars is a brand created and sold under the umbrella of L'Atelier Imports. The aim of the brand, according to the New Havana Cigars (owned by Dan Welsh) website, is to create "limited edition quality at everyday price." New Havana Cigars provides the pertinent background info:…

Review: Tarazona Revolution 305 Torpedo

Since I can't pass up a weasel opportunity for those La Barba Purple, and I had this stick on deck, and for SOME reason no one has reviewed it yet, look at what you get!

I picked up this Tarazona Revolution 305 Torpedo through last year's Cigar Federation pass. As always with a pass full of sticks you've never tried, grabbing this was a total leap of faith, especially because at the time I had no idea what I liked or wanted. Lucky me.

Cigar: Tarazona…
