Review: Añoranza Robusto by Miami Cigar Company

This Añoranza Robusto came to me by way of an /r/cigars bomb from the generous Redditor QuikAF77. The cigar had a few hundred days of rest in my humidor before smoking. I had never previously enjoyed this particular cigar line of cigars, and I always enjoy…

Review: Drew Estate Liga Privada Único Serie Papas Fritas

The Drew Estate Papas Fritas came to me by way of a side trade with one of the Cigar Federation mods, Matt.   As a Canadian, it’s difficult to get cigars at the best of times, that certainly goes extra for anything that is hard to find.  I was happy that I was able to secure one of these for a review.

Nose:

Tons of cedar here.  The fermented tobacco immediately takes my mind back to our tour of the…

Review: H. Upmann Edición 2009 Limitada Magnum 48

I don’t have a lot of aged Cuban cigars in my humidor, so when the H. Upmann Edición 2009 Limitada Magnum 48 became available I jumped at the change to pick up a box.   For those of you who like to track box codes, the code on this is MOA SEP 09.

 

 

Nose:

When you smell a Cuban cigar, you’ll know it.  A combination of dried hay and cedar with that uniquely Cuban rich tobacco scent.

 

Construction:

The H.…

Review: Flor de Las Antillas by My Father Cigars

This Flor de Las Antillas Robusto came to me by way of a Redditor who bombed me, Zekes2517.  It’s always nice to be able to try something new, thanks very much Zekes2517!

 

Nose:

Sweet hay and cedar here.  I wasn’t able to pick up much else but I was eager to light up.

Flor de Las Antillas by My Father Cigars was in the Robusto vitola, measuring 5” long with a 50…

Review: 262 Cigars Ideology

The Ideology by 262 Cigars was won courtesy of Cigarbrief.com and their Foxtoberfest contest.  I had never smoked anything from 262 Cigars previously so it was a wonderful opportunity.



 

Nose:

An interesting nose here comprised of some floral notes and saddle leather.  I can’t…

Review: Viaje Skull and Bones MOAB 2012 (White Label)

The Viaje Skull and Bones MOAB (mother of all bombs) 2012 “White Label” came to me by way of a cigar pass in Canada.  It was on my list of cigars to try out and review, so when it showed up in the pass I was presented with a rare opportunity.  Only three hundred 25 count cigar boxes were released.

 

 

 

Nose:

A few strong smells coming off of the Skull and Bones.  Cedar, heavy fermented tobacco and white…

Oliva Serie V Maduro Especial Blind Review Contest Results

Well the results were interesting to be sure.   In the end it turned out that I wasn’t very good at guessing the 2008, 2009 or 2010 years as I was completely off.  This reinforces that I need to smoke them more often.

2008:

 

I suppose it would make sense that the first release of the Oliva Serie V Maduro’s would be my least favorite.  When you have multiple years to improve the blend it can only get better.  I had guessed the 2008 was the blue dot. …
