Nub Connecticut 464T

Nub Connecticut 464T

A few years back I was approached by Sam Leccia (The Face behind Nub Cigars at the time) about making a Rolling Table for him to take from event to event. I was happy to help out and got together with my Dad to make a couple tables.

Part of the arrangement for making the Rolling Tables was that my father and I be provided with a few boxes of Nub Cigars. My father and I each had Sam sign …

Win a Cain F Table Torch

Win a Cain F Table Torch

A couple of weeks ago, Jerry and I received a surprise email from a Stogie Review Fan. This individual was curious as to why he was no longer receiving email updates for new cigar reviews. When the email came through, my first thought was “Come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve seen an email update on some time either”.

As Jerry and I looked into the situation, it became clear that our Feedburner Email Subscription Service had …

Torch Connecticut by Veritas Cigars

Torch Connecticut by Veritas Cigars

Earlier this month I received a surprise email from Chris Weber, VP and Marketing Director for Veritas Cigars. Chris was interested in having Stogie Review smoke their new Torch Lineup. A couple of days later I received a package in the mail which contained 6 Torch Connecticut and 6 Torch Habano.

Torch by Veritas Cigars is available in 5 Sizes, the biggest of which is a 7×54. The Connecticut, which I’m smoking for this Short Ashes Review, features a Nicarguan …

Vindicator by Oliva

Vindicator by Oliva

Back in 2012, Famous Smoke Shop began to promote a new line of Oliva Produced House Blends. Brian and I were fortunate enough to get a few samples and we set out to record a couple of episodes of Herfin’ Heads. We reviewed both the Inferno and Vindicator favorably and I’ve been smoking them, off and on, ever since.

Inferno by Oliva

Inferno by Oliva

Have you ever found yourself shopping for cigars online and suddenly skeptical? Your mouse hovers over the “add to cart” button and you just don’t know if your should click. The cigar looks pretty plain, the price is low, but it is made by a manufacturer with a solid reputation. Will this just be another sub-par house blend or is this something special? Do you take the gamble or do you instead spend your money on an old standby?

We’ve …

Oliva Serie V Maduro Especial (2013 Release)

Oliva Serie V Maduro Especial (2013 Release)

In 2008 Oliva expanded on its wildly popular Serie V Liga Especial. The Oliva Serie V Maduro Especial was born and it took Maduro Guys, such as myself, by storm. Cigars were only available in one size (A Torpedo at the time) and came in 10 Count Boxes. Production was limited and most shops in my area restricted them to two per customer.

Every year I get excited for the new batch of Serie V Maduros to begin …

Oliva Serie V Melanio Maduro

Oliva Serie V Melanio Maduro

Leading up to the 2013 IPCPR Trade Show there was a lot of buzz around the release of the Oliva Serie V Melanio Maduro. Being a Muduro Guy, I was pretty eager to get my hands on a few. As much as I loved the original Oliva Serie V Melanio, this new release just had to be something special.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to make it to Vegas for the Trade Show and had to rely on local …

Score a Free Cigar on National Hex Day

Score a Free Cigar on National Hex Day

Press Releases, in general, are pretty dull. Here at Stogie Review we generally don’t post them unless they can add to a review or article. There are exceptions to that rule. For instance, what if a press release included details on how you could score a free cigar?

We recently received a Press Release that did just that. Sindicato Cigar Company, makers of Hex Cigars, is putting on a promotion to get free cigars into your hands. All you …
