Review: La Palina Collection Goldie Laguito No. 5

This cigar came to me by way of an anonymous bomb off Reddit.  I couldn’t let such aggression go unchecked so /u/UnofficialGhost will be receiving some ordnance in return.

 

 

Nose:

A mixture of spices with very light cedar.  The nose really undersells the smoking…

Event: Drew Estate RedditCATS Cigar Safari 2014 Part 2

 

Day 1, Wednesday.  Cigar Safari Reunion.

Review: Cohiba Esplendidos (2010)

This Cohiba Esplendidos from 2010 came by way of a good friend who set me up with a Cuban taster pack of sorts.   He asked to remain anonymous.

 

 

Nose:

Event: Drew Estate RedditCATS Cigar Safari 2014 Part 1

Day 0, Tuesday.  So long Old Man Winter.

Review: Cigar Federation The Collective

Quite unexpectedly I came home from work and found a giant care package sitting on my doorstep from Chris Kelly of Ezra Zion Cigar Co.   Inside was a pile of The Collective along with some great stickers.  I’ve since handed out quite a few of them on my recent trip to Nicaragua, but not before I had a chance to sit down and review it.

Review: Cohiba Robusto (2009)

Easily one of the most recognized cigars and brands in the world.  I obtained this Cohiba Robusto 2009, box code UNK from a  fellow Canadian aficionado who I traded with to expand my collection of Cuban cigars.  He asked that he remain anonymous.

 

Nose:

Lots of hay, barnyard, dry grass with some non-specific spices.
