Review: Total Flame Spokes

Total Flame released the Spokes at the 2014 IPCPR, but didn't start shipping until May of this year. This is Total Flame's smallest cigar to date and is a very affordable $4.60. And everyone needs good short/winter smokes, so when I found this little guy hiding in the humi, I knew it was time to smoke it.

Review: Arandoza Defcon

Arandoza seems to be all over the board for me. The Blue Label was NOT for me, the Red Label was very good and I recall the White Label was fantastic. Although, I can't find the review that I was sure I did.... Anyhow, today I am going to try the Defcon and…

Review: Seattle Pipe Club Potlatch

Yes, Seattle Pipe Club Potlatch was smoked and reviewed on Pipe Dummies here. But, I feel that it still needs to be solidified as a written review on our master list, that way it is available to all. Especially, when we all enjoyed it so much. Using seven different tobaccos, Potlatch is yet another small batch blend from Seattle Pipe Club. All of which seem to be highly sought.…

Review: Remember Cuba RC60 Habano

While we were hanging out around the RoMa Craft booth in New Orleans, we were approach by a man from a nearby booth. He said we looked professional and like someone who needed to try his cigars. I'm thinking Logan was not around at the moment. lol Anyway, this man was very passionate about and excited to share his cigars. I decided to start with the 6x60, guessing it would probably be my least favorite.

Review: Hearth & Home Anniversary Kake

Hearth & Home Anniversary Kake came to be out of a happy accident. Planning to receive a shipment of Virginias in a nice uniform color, they instead received a very multi-colored mix. But, they thought it smelled so good, that they decided to make a blend with it when they found out they could get more. Blended with a healthy dose of Perique, you get this VaPer. Produced to commemorate their one year anniversary.…

Review: MBombay KeSara Reserve Nikka

The original MBombay from Mel Shah's MBombay Cigar Co., was released a few years back. Taking it a step further, they have made the KeSara Reserve Nikka using the same Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, which they age in hybrid Sandalwood/Spanish cedar coffins for up to nine months. But, the Nikka uses a special blend of tobaccos aged three years longer than the original KeSara line.
