CAO America Anthem – revisit

CAO America Anthem – revisit

This week i take a look at the CAO America Anthem once again. I got a hold of a few of these and am going to try and keep them to smoke one or two a year and I figured it was July 4th, so I might as well light one up and chat at the camera. No writeup to speak of but here is a link to my previous review of this cigar ORIGINAL CAO AMERICA ANTHEM REVIEW

Sindicato Affinity

Sindicato Affinity

CIGAR

Today I am taking a look at the Sindicato Affinty cigar. This will be the third out of four cigars they produce so you may see the fourth in the near future. This is the toro size which is 6×54.

A lot of nutty taste to start off with this Sindicato Affinity and a slight hint of pepper. Very slight hint. Mild cigar all around right now. Not much has changed other than the smoke getting creamier. Pepper is …

Plunging right into this Ashton Classic Crystal #1 with a meaty fruit taste up front that brings to mind a plum. Woody undertone with a tiny bit of spice up front. Creamy texture to the smoke and mild …

Thanx to Brian Hewitt for the above image as my sd card went POOF and I have not been able to recover anything from it yet. That is the reason for no pictures in the video also.

Short write up this week for the Sindicato cigar. I received two of these from the company and I figured I would shoot a review and get your thoughts in the comment section.

This Sindicato started mild and went to medium pretty …

Starting out with this Reunion Digestivo and there is barnyard scent from foot and wrapper while a hay taste on the cold draw.

Binder : Nicaraguan
Filler : Nicaraguan

This week I take a look at the Hex cigar by Sindicato Cigars. This cigar has an interesting story as it was made by getting a group of retailers together for a single purpose, to make cigars that would stay around rather than disappear in a few months or years.

Wrapper on this Hex has a barnyard scent while the …

Foundry Elements H2O

Foundry Elements H2O

This week I took a look at the three cigars in the Foundry Elements H2O pack. These cigars were gifted to me by a mad scientist named Laurence. I am going to do this a bit different because I have been trying to get this darn video uploaded all day due to my horrible connection and it just finally got finished. Listed below are the notes I took on each cigar and of course the video goes into more detail.…

The Tobacco Company – Chat and Tour

This week I took a trip up to Lemoyne Pennsylvania and had a chat with Mr. Greg Zimmerman from The Tobacco Company. They have two locations, one at 829 State Street, Lemoyne, Pennsylvania and the other at 239 West Chocolate Ave, Hershey, Pennsylvania (Chocolatetown USA!!!) with the Lemoyne store being their flagship. Some of you may know Greg from being an executive board member for IPCPR also, he is a busy man. It was very kind that he took …
