Review: La Flor Dominicana Cameroon Cabinet Chisel #4

I’ve smoked a number of cigars from La Flor Dominicana but never any of the Cameroon Cabinet series. I am a big fan of Cameroon wrappers, so when I was presented a sample for review, it moved to the top of my list.

Originally released as a No. 1 (6-1/2x44), No. 3 (4-3/4x40), No. 4 (6-1/4x54), No 5 (6x50), a Torpedo (6x54), and a Lancero (6x38); these started out as small release in 2007 for cigar events.

Review: Davidoff Escurio Petit Robusto

Today I’m reviewing another cigar that comes in a short package but doesn’t skip on quality or flavor. The Davidoff Escurio Petit Robusto (3-1/4”x50 RG), released in 2015. It was also released in Robusto (4-1/2x54 RG), and Gran Toro (5-1/2x58 RG) vitolas.

I purchased this cigar at a Canadian B&M
