This La Aurora Barrel Aged Robusto has been sitting in my humidor since November of 2012. Sadly this is another stick that I failed to track the originating source of.
The nose on this smells of rich fermented tobacco with a hint of Spanish cedar. I ended up spending several minutes taking in the aromas here before I finally toasted and lit up.
I reviewed the La Aurora Barrel Aged in a…Continue

The Cameroon wrappers always lend themselves to interesting nosing. Dried cedar, spices and pepper all mix for…Continue

I picked up the Brick House Mighty Mighty Maduro Gordo from Atlantic Cigar along with some other singles I had been meaning to review. This had been resting in my humidor since August of 2013.
The nose on this Brick House is really engaging. Barnyard, cedar, coffee and vanilla combine to leave you eager to light up.

This Drew Estate My Uzi Weighs a Ton (MUWAT) Kentucky Fire Cured "Just A Friend" Toro came to me by way of a bomb from a good friend ‘Evil Derek’ who I met on the Cigar Safari in April of 2013. He was kind enough to send out some of these for review.
I remember smelling the Kentucky Fire Cured tobacco leaves when I was on the Cigar Safari in April 2013. Unfortunately I didn’t have the opportunity to smoke it, until now.
This Ramón Bueso Genesis The Project Robusto came to me by way of a side trade with one of the Cigar Federation mods, Matt. Getting cigars in Canada can be difficult, but getting cigars in the boutique category can be almost impossible.
Since I had no immediate plans for travel to the US, Matt was generous enough to grab a boutique sampler and arrange a side trade with me.…
Sadly this Ashton Estate Sun Grown ESG #21 Year Salute Robusto came from a time before I used the CigarGeeks online humidor to manage my inventory. Although it does take some attention to detail, I think I would be lost at this point trying to keep track of various cigars, their costs, purchase dates and where the cigar originated from.
Cedar, barnyard and hints of pepper combine…Continue
I’d be lying if I didn't say one of the great side benefits of being a reviewer is the boutique cigars I get to try out. Many times I get to go into a review not expecting anything, or having any preconceived notions of what I’m about to smoke. The other benefit is that I get to do research into the company behind it and try and understand all the background that went into a particular cigar. This Casa De Entrada Entrada (formerly…Continue

The Alec Bradley Connecticut Nano came to me by way of a the Smoking Greek as a part of his 13 for 2013 giveaway. I had not previous had the opportunity to try the Connecticut Nano, so thank you Evan!
The nose on this was rather simple. Barnyard and light hay was all I could detect.
The Arturo Fuente Casa Fuente Belicos Finos came to me by way of an extremely generous Reddit /r/cigars Secret Santa. I let it rest for almost 9 months before smoking it.
This particular Arturo Fuente cigar has notes of barnyard and sweet hay. Even with more careful examination I wasn’t able to pick up anything else.
Arturo Fuente Casa Fuente Belicos Finos has an orange ribbon at the…Continue
