Way back before I was a mod here, I won a box of the first edition of Zulu Zulu from a Robby Ras Christmas contest. And I was extremely pleased to find out that I really enjoyed that cigar. So, I was very excited to get to try the new Zulu Zulu Mas Paz Edition. Hopefully, it stands up to the bar set from year one.

Definitely, the neatest looking tobacco I've had so far. I am just hoping Peter Stokkebye's Luxury Bullseye Flake can hold up once in my pipe. So, I guess I'll break up some discs and see what happens. I should note that this blend replaced "Luxury Curly Cut" in 2006, and has become their best seller in the US.…Continue

This Nestor Miranda One Life Edition Danno 2015 Habano - whew, thats a long one - is a large cigar, but it’s not nearly as heavy as one would think. It feels firm and uniformly packed top to bottom, with a somewhat toothy, minimally veined and well rolled wrapper. Better carve out a couple hours as this a long cigar, though luckily not a jaw breaker.

Bayou Morning was a bit of a twist for me from the jar note to the smoke flavors. The name makes me feel as though I should be smoking this on the pier, looking out over a swamp, which really wouldn't be a bad way to start a morning to me.…Continue

This is another hefty cigar, large diameter and lots of weight. The wrapper is very smooth with only one main vein, and a nice box-press form. Besides the size, the highly decorated band and color contrasting foot band make for a very eye-catching cigar. The pre-light aromas are great. Lots of vibrant, spicy tobacco tingle and a clean cedar background.

Another nice looking, well constructed cigar from Garo. The red white and gold band is the best looking of the three so far and the secondary band denoting 2010 LE adds a nice touch. Clean seams and even packing. The wrapper leaf is clean, with small veins and a little toothiness to it.

An aromatic blend of burley and black cavendish, Founding Fathers has an infusion of exotic pomegranate flavoring. It's been out of quite a while, but then again, I've only been smoking pipes for the last year, so it's all new to me. ;) The aroma has me ready to go already!
