A Trip to the Farm with General Cigar 2017

A Trip to the Farm with General Cigar 2017


Just over two weeks ago (it seems like so much longer than that now), Ben and I spent several days touring General Cigar’s facilities in the Dominican Republic. Our first stop was the farm. It makes sense, that’s where it all begins. To kick things off, Régis Broersma, the president of General Cigar officially welcomed us on the tour, in the process introducing us to the people who would be guiding us on our journey through the Dominican world of …

I was approached a couple of months ago by Serino Cigars to review there Royale Maduro XX.  I hadn’t heard of Serino Cigars at the time, but was happy to give them a shot.  Serino Cigars was founded in 2016 by Tony Serino and his son, Carson, who partnered with Omar Gonzales Aleman.  Aleman worked at Partagas and was the head director at La Corona in Cuba which manufactures Romeo y Julieta, Hoyo de Monterrey, Cuaba, Por Larranaga, Saint Luis …

Manolo Estate Serie 32 Habano

Manolo Estate Serie 32 Habano

I considered a number of cigars for this, my first video cigar review of 2017. But then I thought it wasn’t right to not make good on a promise I made last year. Months ago (I’m not even sure how many) I was sent these samples of the Manolo Estate Habano Serie 32 to review. And several times I started to do just that. But then something would happen, and I’d forget. It happened a number of times. But not …
