Cigar Review: Quesada Oktoberfest 2023 Salomon Press

Initial Thoughts Going into the fall, Quesada Cigars likes to release a limited edition cigar to celebrate Octoberfest. And for 2023, they released the Quesada Oktoberfest 2023 Salomon Press. And while I’ve smoked a previous Oktoberfest blend from them before, I went into this review with a clean palate and a fresh pair of eyes. Read more…

Cigar Review: J. London Ripper Robusto

Initial Thoughts J. London has been making cigars for over 10 years. And, for many years, they’ve only made one cigar, the Gold Series (as far as I know). With that cigar, they established themselves as a premium brand in the market. Then their warehouse burned to the ground. I’m not sure if today’s cigar, Read more…

Cigar Review: Montecristo Media Noche No. 3 Corona

Initial Thoughts The Montecristo Media Noche No. 3 Corona comes to us today via the Adventure Club. It was a popular choice among members, so it was in there twice, and this rustic cigar will hopefully not disappoint. The Montecristo Media Noche No. 3 Corona is a small cigar (it’s a corona after all) with Read more…

Cigar Review: Rocky Patel The Edge 20th Anniversary Toro

Initial Thoughts One of my favorite cigars over the last 20 years has been the Rocky Patel Edge Sumatra.

And, to celebrate my enthusiasm and dedication, Rocky decided to release the all-new Rocky Patel The Edge 20th Anniversary, and we’re Read more…

Cigar Review: Espinosa Knuckle Sandwich Maduro Corona Gorda

Initial Thoughts The Knuckle Sandwich cigars are a collaboration between famous chef Guy Fieri and Eric Espinosa of Espinosa cigars. Fieri, a huge fan of cigars, and Espinosa blended the Espinosa Knuckle Sandwich Maduro and the Espinosa Knuckle Sandwich Habano, and today we’re going to go mouth first into the rich Maduro. The Espinosa Knuckle Read more…

Cigar Review: Hooten Young 2020 Selection

Initial Thoughts Back in 2019, the first thing that attracted me to Hooten Young Cigars was just how beautiful they were. Fast forward four years and the Hooten Young 2020 Selection Toro is another beautiful cigar. The HY 2020 Selection is a slightly box-pressed toro that’s medium brown in color and that has a lot Read more…

Cigar Review: Pospiech Powstanie Wojtek War Bear 2021

Initial Thoughts It’s a good thing we don’t have to know how to pronounce Pospiech Powstanie Wojtek War Bear 2021 before we can smoke it. This barber-pole cigar has a complicated name, and we’re going to see if it’s worth trying. The Powstanie Wojtek War Bear is an interesting cigar. It has two intertwined wrappers Read more…

Cigar Review: Caldwell The Last Tsar Corona Gorda

Initial Thoughts Robert Caldwell claims that The Last Tsar is such a bold, nicotine-fueled cigar that you need a full stomach and something to put your feet on before you smoke it. Well, I have neither of those things, but let’s dive in anyway. The Caldwell The Last Tsar Corona Gorda was a good-looking cigar. Read more…

Cigar Review: Padron 1964 Anniversary Maduro Exclusivo

Initial Thoughts While you shouldn’t (and can’t) judge a cigar by its wrapper, a lot of the flavors of a cigar come from the leaf that wraps the cigar. Today we’re reviewing the Padron 1964 Anniversary Maduro Exclusivo, just about a week after reviewing 1964 Natural, to compare the two cigars. The Natural lived up Read more…

Cigar Review: Padron 1964 Anniversary Natural Exclusivo

Initial Thoughts If you were going to look up the best cigars of all time, you’d probably find the Padron 1964 Anniversary Natural Exclusivo somewhere on that list. Well, today we’re going to see if this cigar is worth the hype or if it’s one you should just skip. With a quick cut from my Read more…

Cigar Review: Kauai Cigar Co Island Prince Sun Grown Momona Toro

Initial Thoughts: Over our years of travel, we’ve learned that a great way to understand and learn about a culture or community is through their food. So, why not also learn about them through their cigars? Today’s cigar is the Kauai Cigar Co Island Prince Sun Grown Momona, a cigar that has part of its Read more…

Cigar Review: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Sobremesa Brulee Toro

Initial Thoughts: I’ve had an interesting experience with Dunbarton Tobacco and Trust’s cigars. While I’ve found them generally good, I’ve also found them unnecessarily expensive. However, over the past few months, I’ve had several friends recommend that I give the Dunbarton Tobacco and Trust Sobremesa Brulee a try. And, given my newfound love of lighter cigars, Read more…

Cigar Review: Diamond Crown Julius Caeser Robusto

Initial Thoughts: This is the second time a Diamond Crown Julius Caeser cigar has shown up in our reviews. The first time was when we reviewed the Diamond Crown Julius Caeser Toro, but that was back in February of 2019 and before we started CigarScore TV. So, today, we’re diving into the Diamond Crown Julius Caeser Read more…

Cigar Review: Aging Room Pura Cepa Mezzo

Initial Thoughts: Created, in part, by Nestor Plasencia, the Aging Room Pura Cepa is a cigar I’m VERY excited about. After smoking, enjoying, and reviewing the Plasencia Alma Fuerte a few months ago, I’ve been ready for another great cigar. I hope this Aging Room is that great cigar. With 100% Nicaraguan tobacco (it says so Read more…

Cigar Review: Viva La Vida Torpedo by Artesano del Tobacco

Initial Thoughts: I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – cigar of the month clubs are great for trying new and crazy cigars! Today I’m smoking the Viva La Vida by Artesano del Tobacco. This is a brand I’ve never heard of before, so I’m excited to see what Luxury Cigar Club sent me. Read more…
