Dunhill is a brand that has been showing up on my radar more often in the past year. With their solid offering in the Heritage, and the very limited Seleccion Suprema from 2015.

At the 2016 IPCPR in Las Vegas, they unveiled a new Maduro offering, the first of its kind for…

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.
