Project 805 Andullo

Project 805 Andullo

A little while back we received an email from Kevin over at Ventura Cigar Company. Kevin wanted us to check out their Project 805 Andullo line. We were happy to take them up on the offer and a couple of samples were sent our way for review.

In the sales literature provided with the Project 805, the focus was put on Andullo. It is explained that this is the mystery tobacco that gives the Dominican Puro its soul. When …

Four Kicks by Crowned Heads

Four Kicks by Crowned Heads

Things have been a little tight this year and as a result, I’ve been doing the bulk of my cigar shopping online. The last couple of orders I have placed have been through Cigar Monster. If you started to see a pattern between Famous Sale Items and my reviews, it was no coincidence.

In my latest order, I picked up a 5 Pack of Four Kicks Robusto for less than $25 (shipped). It has been a little while since I’ve …

K.A. Kendall’s 7-20-4 Robusto

K.A. Kendall’s 7-20-4 Robusto

This week kind of got away from me and I found myself in a predicament. My daughter just laid down for a nap and I had a narrow window where I could review a cigar. Did I gamble and smoke a cigar that could potentially be a rough experience or would I revisit something that I knew would be enjoyable?

The latter won out and I grabbed a K.A. Kendall’s 7-20-4 Robusto from my humidor. This cigar was one that …

Romeo Y Julieta House of Montague

Romeo Y Julieta House of Montague

Romeo Y Julieta House of Montague. With a name like that, it makes a man feel as though he should smoke it with his pinky finger extended towards the heavens, in a show of class and sophistication. In addition to the fancy name, it isn’t packaged half bad either. It features a white wrapper with silver artwork which looks great.

I came by the Romeo Y Julieta House of Montague cigar as a free sample from Famous Smoke Shop

Asylum

Asylum

I am a glutton for punishment. Despite having virtually no cigar budget these days, I like to browse over to Cigar Monster once per day to check out their Monster Mashup. More often than not, I wind up closing the browser tab and texting Jerry about some great deal I came across.

Last week I did something a little different and couldn’t resist putting an order in. Included in my small order was a 5 Pack of Asylum Premium Cigars. …

Sencillo Black

Sencillo Black

Last week I fell into a groove. The weather was beautiful and after recording a review of the E Stunner by EP Carrillo, I wanted to follow it up with something else. I dug around in my humidor and came up with a Sencillo Black. I headed outside with my cigar, camera, and a cup of coffee. While I enjoyed my cigar, my daughter played on her swing set.

The Sencillo Black is a cigar that I’ve been meaning …

E Stunner by EP Carrillo

E Stunner by EP Carrillo

To put it plainly, things have been crazy busy for me over the past several months. With my daughter getting older, she has hit that age where she rarely naps and spends the vast majority of her day running and playing. This leaves little time for Daddy to slip in a cigar while Mommy works and goes to school.

Even with things being as busy as they have, there isn’t a day that goes by that I’m not working on …

Room 101 Cigars: Daruma Mutante

Room 101 Cigars: Daruma Mutante

Back in June, Mike and I attended the 2013 Famous Smoke Shop Cigarnival. We did a joint review while we were there of the Room 101 Cigars Daruma Mutante. The video slipped through the cracks and probably should come with the tag ‘lost tape’. I came across it while editing video of a review I did recently and thought posting this late was better than letting it disappear forever.

We smoked the Daruma Mutante in the morning, before heading …

IPCPR 2013: Sam Leccia

IPCPR 2013: Sam Leccia

Every year we have a minor hiccup with IPCPR Coverage. Fortunately, we are past the days of those hiccups being hosting related. This time, unfortunately, they came in the form of Brian’s camera dying. The good news is that it happened right at the end of the interview so I’m told you aren’t missing much.

In this video Sam Leccia talks about his new Black and White lines. In addition, we get word that the old ‘Debut’ (which never made …
