Herfin’ Heads: MBombay Corojo Oscuro

Herfin’ Heads: MBombay Corojo Oscuro

Mere moments before being declared legally dead, Herfin’ Heads returns with a joint review of the MBombay Corojo Oscuro. It’s billed on the Bombay Tobak website as “a flavor­forward creation containing balanced strength and a full bodied experience. With harmonious notes of ground coffee, spice, dark chocolate, and residual sweetness…”

As we have done in the past, Ben and I smoke two different vitolas from the line and discuss it at intervals through the experience. Ben burns the Belicoso size …

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 97

It’s once time again for another issue of Brian’s The Week In Smoke. In case this is your first Week in Smoke, be advised that it covers many (though not necessarily all) of the cigars I’ve smoked in the past week (or the past month, or however long it has been since the last issue), along with a couple of quick thoughts that came to me at the time. These are not full cigar reviews, but quick blurbs based …
