Review: Davidoff Yamasa Piramides

The Davidoff Yamasa is a project that involves the Yamasa region in the Dominican Republic. Henke Kelner, Master Blender for Davidoff, decided to try his hand at growing tobacco in an area where all others had failed.

To date I’ve managed to smoke almost every single vitola available for the Yamasa. This is the second Pirámides I’ve smoked, so I feel like I have a great sense of the vitola performance at this point.

Review: Hoyo de Monterrey Hoyo La Amistad

General Cigar Company unveiled a number of collaboration blends with A.J. Fernandez. What makes this project special is that AJ grew up near the Hoyo de Monterrey factory in Cuba. All the tobacco for the La Amistad also comes from A.J. Fernandez farms.

Sold in 20 count boxes, with 4 vitolas to choose from: Rothschild (4-1/2x50), Robusto (5x54), Toro (6x50), and Gigante (6x60).
