Colibri Astoria Triple Jet Lighter

Colibri Astoria Triple Jet Lighter

When it comes to cigar accessories there is one that you simply can not do without. If you’re in a bind and find yourself without a cutter, a pocket knife, fingernails, or even teeth can open up the cigar. They may not do the prettiest job but the job gets done.

You really can’t say the same when it comes to lighting your cigar. Unless of course you’re Les Stroud or Cody Lundin and can whip up a fire with …

I want a cigar that will knock me over!

I want a cigar that will knock me over!

Yesterday afternoon I was feeling bored. With plenty to do around the house and no desire to do any of it, I made the decision to get out for a little while. I hopped in my car and made the grueling 0.8 Mile ride to Sir Stogies to watch football with the guys.

As I kicked my feet up in the recliner, toasting my AJ Fernandez New World, one of the guys called out across the lounge. ‘Hey, have you

Tortuga Reserva (Box Pressed)

Tortuga Reserva (Box Pressed)

Over the past few weeks I’ve developed an addiction. My drug of choice has been the Tortuga Reserva Alma. It seems like every time I purchase them, with the intention of reviewing one, I smoke every single one of them before I manage to fire up the camera and record my thoughts.

On one shoulder an angel sat, whispering in my ear ‘Don’t burn them too fast, you won’t have any left to review. Get out the camera before its

Esteban Carreras Cupa Cabra

Esteban Carreras Cupa Cabra

A couple of weeks ago I was driving home from work and decided to swing into my local B&M, Sir Stogies. I was in the mood for a firecracker of a cigar and was short on time. I made my way into the humidor and found an empty box of Guerrilla Warfare.

I poked around in the humidor for a couple of minutes looking for something else that fit the bill. That was the first time I laid …

Casa Fernandez Aniversario 2014

Casa Fernandez Aniversario 2014

Early last week I came home from work to find a package waiting for me on my front porch. I glanced at the shipping label and got all excited. It isn’t very often that I receive samples from Casa Fernandez but when they arrive, they tend to be a rare treat.

I wasted no time and immediately lit up one of my Casa Fernandez Aniversario 2014 Cigars. The smoke was a bit bolder than I was anticipating but it …

Rapture by Viva Republica

Rapture by Viva Republica

A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of meeting up with my local Miami Cigar Rep at an event being held at Sir Stogies. In addition to the Casa Miranda Chapter Two (which I reviewed last week), I also picked up a couple of Rapture by Viva Republica.

I didn’t initially plan on purchasing any of these particular cigars but the strangest thing happened at the event. As I sat there talking with the rep and …

Indian Tobac Super Fuerte Natural

Indian Tobac Super Fuerte Natural

Last week, Jerry and I were discussing my current commute cigar dilemma. In the morning, when I leave my house before 5:00am, my ride to work takes roughly 35 minutes. No matter what I seem to select as a commute cigar, I always wind up throwing away a portion of it.

First I tried a Nub Connecticut. While it was an enjoyable cigar, I wound up pitching about half of it. Next I tried the Guerrilla Warfare from Viva

Casa Miranda Chapter Two by Nestor Miranda

Casa Miranda Chapter Two by Nestor Miranda

Last week I set aside a little time to get out to Sir Stogies for a Miami Cigar Event. It has been a while since I’ve attended an event and I thought it would be a great opportunity to meet up with my local rep, Chris Lenzo, and get caught up on what I’ve missed being without a local B&M.

While I was at the event, I picked up a handful of cigars, the first of which to be reviewed …

Punch Rare Corojo

Punch Rare Corojo

Before we get into the review, I want to point out that this video is slightly dated. A couple of weeks ago I was preparing to move to my new home. Not wanting to miss a week, I recorded a review of the Punch Rare Corojo the night before my big move.

On the day of the move, I grabbed the SD Card out of my camera and planned on editing and posting later that week. When it came time …

Nat Sherman 1930 (Short Ashes)

Nat Sherman 1930 (Short Ashes)

A few weeks ago I received a surprise email from the folks over at Nat Sherman. They asked if I would be interested in trying their Nat Sherman 1930 and possibly putting together a review. Times are tough and I’m in no position to turn down cigars, so I gratefully accepted.

A short time later I received three Nat Sherman 1930 cigars in the mail. I wasted no time and began smoking them in preparation for a review. Out of …
