Casa Magna Colorado Review

Monday, October 27, 2014 1:56:41 PM America/New_York

In 2008 Cigar Aficionado named the Casa Magna Colorado #1.  From past experience, I’ve learned to not put much stock in ratings.  Whenever I try a cigar with a high rating I usually walk away disappointed.  Most of the time I expect too much and the cigar never quite lives up to the standards I set based on the rating.  Still, you can see how it’s easy to get excited by a cigar rated #1. 

The first thing you’ll notice is the nice dark wrapper and it’s inviting glow, thanks in part to the oil in the Colorado wrapper.  The cigar itself is solid with a lot of tobacco packed inside...

Fifty States of Freedom: Louisiana - The Big Not-So-Easy

Thursday, October 23, 2014 2:09:45 PM America/New_York

Louisana State

Louisiana is a state that is completely unique and totally American. A state renown for music, food, culture and freedom in a country built on the ideal of choice and liberty. It has always been a prime example of the preverbal melting pot, which this great nation prides itself on. It is also home to The Cigar Factory, located in the French Quarter for over twenty-five years.  In more recent times, Louisiana has been an example of American resilience and perseverance in the wave of the Hurricane Katrina disaster. Louisiana is also home to one the world’s greatest celebrations, Mardi Gras. That being said, New Orleans held ‘Smoke-Free Week’ this past summer. 

At the forefront of the event is...

Hot Off the Press

Tuesday, October 21, 2014 2:40:51 PM America/New_York

Cigar Press

Like most traditions in the cigar world box pressing cigars had its start in Cuba, and from there it has spread throughout the industry.  It’s thought that the practice began to have a cigar that wouldn’t roll out of an ashtray or off a table.  It was also thought that a square shaped cigar would be easier to ship and a slightly smaller box would be more cost effective.  Eventually, the shape became a mark of a higher quality product, but today many cigar smokers pass them by without so much as a thought.  However the exact reasoning for the interesting shape to the cigar is a closely debated topic. 

There are actually a few different ways to achieve the rectangular...

Victor Sinclair Series 55 Yellow Churchill: A Toanz Review

Thursday, October 2, 2014 2:35:15 PM America/New_York

All in all I enjoyed the Victor Sinclair Series 55 Yellow Churchill. It's not the best cigar I've ever had, and it's not my favorite Victor Sinclair I've had, but for the price you pay it's a perfectly acceptable, inoffensive cigar. Victor Sinclair is a very polarizing brand, but for the price they're definitely a trial and error cigar because you don't have to lay down major cash to try some.

Ashton Aged Maduro No. 10 Review

Tuesday, September 30, 2014 2:27:16 PM America/New_York

Aston Aged Maduro

The Aged Maduro No. 10 is a cigar that Ashton set out to make special.  Only very select Connecticut broad leaf is used for this cigar.  The wrapper is then allowed to age and ferment naturally leading to a sweet flavor that is pleasing and natural.  I was never really familiar with Ashton cigars so I was excited to give this one a try.  To be honest, I always thought of someone really rich smoking one of these cigars.  Maybe it was the name, but I imagined Thurston Howell from Gilligan’s Island with a suitcase full of these that just happened to not be lost at sea.  Not sure why, but I was glad to put this prejudice aside and smoke one of these fine cigars.  Rather than using typical cigar sizes like Churchill or Robusto, Ashton chose to number these cigars.  The No. 10 is closest to a Robusto size.

The first thing you’ll take note...

Punch Rare Corojo Magnum Review

Thursday, September 25, 2014 2:18:08 PM America/New_York

Years have gone by with the Punch brand being passed around from owner to owner and yet we still find this line of cigars pumping out the best of the best. In particular, the Punch Rare Corojo seems to catch eyes left and right, consistently being bought out before retailers can put them on the shelves.

A strong suggestion for those of you purchasing this cigar, be prepared to wait. With the high quality surrounding this stick, the flavors also improve with time. A full year will truly make this cigar reign supreme...

Victor Sinclair Connecticut Yankee Review

Monday, September 22, 2014 2:03:00 PM America/New_York

The Victor Sinclair Connecticut Yankee is an American wrapped beauty. The Connecticut grown Havana seed leaf is home grown goodness at its finest. Not a common leaf, and a damn shame too. Victor bought a small number of these a few years back and they are starting to make their appearance. Worth the wait!

This medium bodied cigar delivers a rich, smooth smoke. The wrapper is even a bit sweet on the lips with a pleasant cedary smell. A shade darker than most Connecticut...

La Perla Habana Review

Friday, September 19, 2014 5:01:44 PM America/New_York

La Perla Habana

La Perla Habana Classic is a cigar that brings to mind the golden age of Cuba.  I must admit I’m fascinated by Cuba.  Here you have a country that from the start was taken advantage of.  For hundreds of years the Spanish were in control of it, using it for their sugar concerns it was fought over time and again.  At one point, the Cuban people longing to be free of their Old World oppressors, they staged a revolution that caught the attention of their freedom loving neighbors to the north.  At the time, in America, the War for Independence was only some one hundred and twenty years past and the American Civil War was only thirty years past.  Americans felt a kinship with their brothers and sisters in Cuba fighting to be free of a ruler they felt trampled their rights.  So we got involved and the average American fighting in Cuba didn’t care about sugar plantations or business concerns, only to help free a people who felt they ought to be in charge of their own destinies. 

The problem was that America at the time was a growing country in the middle of a time...

Punch Rothschild Review

Monday, September 15, 2014 5:09:49 PM America/New_York

Punch Rothschild

Before you look at the price of this stogie compared to some of the other Punch cigars we have reviewed and begin to think the quality drops like the price, think again. In the beginning of my endeavor with cigars, the first Punch product that I took a swing at was the tiny Rothschild. I was blown away.

Let’s get straight to the nitty-gritty of this smoke. The Punch Rothschild provides the smoker with a smooth experience that hides a little spice in the background. I’ve personally found...

Quesada Tributo Julio Review

Friday, September 12, 2014 4:40:00 PM America/New_York

Cigar Image for Quesadas

The Quesada Tributo line of cigars received a 90 rating.  Not many cigars break that number.  That alone should be enough to catch your eye and make you want to try this cigar.  Of course, if you dig a little deeper and get into the circumstances behind the creation of this cigar you may be even more inclined to try it that is if you have a sentimental streak like me.  The Tributo line of cigars comes in three different sizes, each one named for a member of the Quesada family that was tragically killed in a plane crash in 2002.  It doesn’t hurt that the Quesada Tributo line boasts a wrapper that blends four different wrapper varieties together to form the unique wrapper that is one of the more standout aspects of the Tributo.

The wrapper color on the Tributo appears at first glance to be a milk chocolate color, but after examining it and turning it in the light, it almost appeared to have a rosy hue about it.  The wrapper boasted a lot of good size veins and no visible seam.  There also wasn’t a blemish to be found.  I also couldn’t find any soft spots in the cigar.  It’s packed tight with plenty of legero tobacco.  The double bands on the Tributo certainly compliment the look of the wrapper with this cigar.  The first band is around the foot of the cigar and is an eye pleasing greenish yellow with a reddish brown and gold border.  Written on the band is the word Tributo flanked by some fancy scroll work...
