Review: Crowned Heads Luminosa



Crowned Heads has finally filled a void in their lineup. The Luminosa adds a "milder" Connecticut wrapped cigar to their already healthy lineup of cigars. This is not a mild cigar though, and is touted as being mild-medium. Let's see how it stacks up.

Review: Chogui Dos77

Chogüí Cigars launched in 2014, but it didn’t hit the US market until 2015. The Dos77 Rogusto was released that year. The name commemorates a box of the original Primera Edición, limited to 300 boxes and only sold in the Dominican Republic. During the trip from the factory in Tamboril, Santiago and Santo Domingo, one box was lost. Box number 277. Get it? The Longsdale, which is the cigar reviewed, was released in 2016.

Review: La Aurora Commemorative 1987 Connecticut

This cigar was released to commemorate the year in which La Aurora began blending this specific leaf. In this case, this Connecticut blend was started in 1987. It was released in tandem with the 1962 Corojo, but that is for another time.

Surgeon’s Top 25 of 2016, #25 - #21

As I wrote in my introduction article, I’ll be posting my countdown in blocks of 5 cigars. I do realize this doesn’t provide instant gratification of seeing who is #1, but it does allow me to sleep between writing articles.

Surgeon’s Top 25 of 2016, Introduction

This year has gone by faster than any I can remember in the past. The FDA legislation dropped like a storm cloud on the industry, but I remain hopeful that things will turn around in 2017.

 

My 2016 list will only consist of non-Cubans. While I smoke Cuban cigars, I didn’t smoke enough new releases this year to justify a separate list. I apologize to all the CC smokers out there.

 

Looking back on the year; when the FDA legislation and pending date of…

Surgeon’s Top 25 of 2016: Best Factories

Before we get into the top cigars of 2016, it’s time to get some recognition to factories that stood out.

As I look back, there’s no question there are four standouts for me.

 

La Zona (Espinosa Cigars):

The little factory that could. La Zona might seem small, if you’ve ever had the pleasure of taking a tour. If you were to guess at their size looking at their…
