Cigar Review: Room 101 12th Anniversary Toro

Initial Thoughts The Room 101 12th Anniversary is a cigar we’ve been looking forward to smoking and reviewing for a while. So, when the toro showed up in the Adventure Club, we jumped at the chance to review it. The Room 101 12th Anniversary Toro I reviewed was a pretty good-looking cigar. The dark brown Read more…

Cigar Review: Aganorsa Leaf Signature Maduro Corona Gorda

Initial Thoughts Imagine you opened a fresh box of delicious-looking chocolates. So appetizing, so tasty. But instead of a chocolate bar, you got a cigar, specifically the Aganorsa Leaf Signature Maduro Corona Gorda. To me, that’s how the Aganorsa Signature Maduro looks. After unsheathing this cigar from its shiny paper sleeve, the dark Nicaraguan Corojo Read more…

Cigar Review: Partagas Black Label Robusto Tubo

Initial Thoughts Like companies outside the industry, cigar brands get bought and sold all the time. Sometimes between families, sometimes between a family and a giant corporation. Partagas is the latter. While they’re a company rich in Cuban history, the non-Cuban lineage joined with General Cigar Company in the late 1970s to begin making cigars Read more…

Cigar Review: Southern Draw Rose of Sharon Desert Rose Lonsdale

Initial Thoughts The Southern Draw Rose of Sharon Desert Rose Lonsdale is a great-looking cigar. The pink and black on the paper label provide a nice contrast, and the wrapper leaf is as smooth as silk. Visually, the Desert Rose Lonsdale has both a pigtail tip and a closed foot. Both features are somewhat common, Read more…

Cigar Review: Diesel Rage Toro

Initial Thoughts The Diesel Rage Toro is a pretty basic-looking cigar. But, looks can be deceiving. The only way you’ll know who makes this cigar and what blend it is is by the small band around the foot. Other than its discrete branding, the Diesel Rage Toro was a good-looking cigar. It appeared to have Read more…

Cigar Review: Plasencia Cosecha 149 La Vega Robusto

Initial Thoughts: Today we continue our series of blind cigar reviews, where our goal is to provide you with a totally objective, completely neutral review of a cigar. Ellory went into this review completely blind; that means without knowing what it is, who made it, how much it costs, or what’s in it. To see Read more…

Cigar Review: Bocock Brothers World Traveler Connecticut Toro

Initial Thoughts: Some cigars are meant to be smoked while sitting down. Other cigars, like today’s cigar, the Bocock Brothers World Traveler Connecticut Toro, just beg to be smoked while “traveling” around đŸ˜‰ So that’s what we’re going to do! After a quick cut from my Colibri Deep V-Cutter, the Bocock Brothers World Traveler Connecticut Read more…

Cigar Review: Bocock Brothers World Traveler Habano Toro

Initial Thoughts: From the minute I laid eyes on the Bocock Brothers World Traveler Habano Toro in May of 2021 when I did the unboxing, I was curious about this cigar. I mean, who puts a rooster on their cigar and calls it Bocock Brothers… However, here we are, reviewing what looks to be a Read more…

Cigar Review: Dapper La Madrina Toro

Initial Thoughts: Dapper Cigars is a fairly boutique brand that we’ve reviewed before. But today’s cigar, while we’ve received one in the past… it seems to have been lost in the archives. So, today we’re reviewing the Dapper Cigars La Madrina Toro that we received in January’s box from CigarClub. The Dapper La Madrina has Read more…

Cigar Review: Quesada Cigars Casa Magna Tiberius

Initial Thoughts: We’ve reviewed ugly cigars and we’ve reviewed beautiful cigars. But today’s cigar is, well, odd. The Quesada Cigars Casa Magna Tiberius isn’t a bad-looking cigar, but it is a flat one. The first thing I noticed about the Casa Magna Tiberius was that it looked as if it was smooshed after it was Read more…

Cigar Review: Caldwell Savages Lancero

Initial Thoughts: Today’s cigar, the Caldwell Savages Lancero, is one I’ve reviewed before, but that was over two years ago, and it was a different vitola (size). Since then, I’ve reviewed over 300 cigars, and smoked thousands more, and my preferences and pallate have changed. And while this isn’t quite a “Second Chance” Cigar Review, Read more…

Cigar Review: M.X.S. Adrian Gonzalez El Titan Toro

Initial Thoughts: One of the best things about cigar subscription clubs is that you never know when you’ll get a new favorite cigar in the mail. And today’s cigar, the M.X.S. Adrian Gonzalez El Titan Toro, could just be one such cigar. Visually, the cigar looks great. The wrapper looks very thin, well-marbled, and a Read more…

Cigar Review: La Flor Dominicana La Nox

Initial Thoughts: La Flor Dominicana has been around for a long time. In fact, I remember smoking their cigars years and years ago and really enjoying them. Today, however, we’re smoking a relatively new cigar from the brand. Today we’re diving into the La Flor Dominicana La Nox. The La Flor Dominicana La Nox has Read more…

Cigar Review: Warped Maestro del Tiempo

Initial Thoughts: The first thing I noticed about today’s cigar, the Warped Maestro del Tiempo, was its great aroma. Some cigars smell earthy, others like leather, but the Maestro del Tiempo smelled delicious. The Warped Maestro del Tiempo is made by Casa Fernandez, and it’s chock full of Aganorsa Leaf Tobacco. After snipping the end Read more…
