Review: 1502 Black Gold Toro

I picked up a pair of 1502 Black Gold Toro's along with some 1502 Emerald Toro's as a part of a ‘build your own House of Emilio sampler’ on the Cigar Federation store.  

Now I know what some of you might be thinking.  Here we go, ol’ Surge has sold out and is pitching Emilio products in his reviews!   I always want to make sure that people…

Event: Drew Estate RedditCATS Cigar Safari 2014 Part 3

Part 3 – Day 2, Thursday. Tobacco, Oliva and Joya oh my!.

I've talked about it in the past, but there's something about going from a high elevation place to a low elevation, high heat and high humidity place.  People have asked me in the past how I'm able to smoke so many cigars while on the Cigar Safari.   Honestly if I were to smoke 4 cigars in half a day at home I would likely spend most of the evening and the next day sick.

Review: Partagas Lusitanias

These came to me by way of a 10 count box I purchased.   For those that track box codes, the box code on this was AUB JUL 12.    I had the fortune of trying these for the first time when I was in Cuba, in November of 2013.  A generous BoTL gave me one and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  I wasted no time in grabbing a box not soon after I flew home.  

Granted this is all a fairly big spoiler leading in, I hope you still enjoy the review.

Review: Ventura PSyKo SEVEN

The Ventura PSyKo SEVEN came as a 2 pack by way of a giveaway Ventura hosted in November 2013.   The only other Ventura cigar I had ever tried was the custom release they did for Reddit /r/cigars.

Review: Blind Cuban Cigar Tasting Contest - Cigar #1

This cigar was part of a 5 cigar sampler pack that I ordered from an online Cuban cigar supplier.   They run a contest each year where you buy a sampler of cigars, smoke them blind, and then have to make a guess as to what they are.  If you get all 5 correct you get a significant gift certificate through them. 

Unfortunately I don’t have as much experience smoking Cuban cigars as most of the other members, but it sounded like a fun contest so I signed up.…
