Warped brand owner, Kyle Gellis, has burst onto the boutique cigar scene in the past few years by creating some genuinely unique offerings that stands out in an already flooded market. Kyle produces cigars out of the El Titan de Bronze factory in Miami, as well as Casa Fernandez and their Aganorsa farms in Nicaragua. The Miami made …
If memory serves me correctly, January 2008 was Ed and my first review here at Stogie Review. We reviewed the Dona Flor back then, and now we are re-visiting the brand and another blend. Dona Flor was in limbo for awhile as two companies disputed who had rights to the brand. Now that the issue has been ruled upon in court, an owner has been chosen and they are back in the market.
I used to smoke the Dona Flor …
All of my recent posts these last few weeks have been late, but each time I’ve had a legitimate excuse (not that it really matters). This week was no different: my in-laws were visiting this past weekend, and I had to fly out to the Midwest on Monday for a family event. However, this trip to Chicago presented me with a great opportunity to record a video review with my good buddy Mike (aka @YoungBuckBOTL) from MikesStogies.com. Mike …
A Note From Tom
Ed and I got together last weekend to review the Gurkha Cellar Reserve. It boasts 15 year aged tobacco, Criollo 1998 wrapper, Dominican Olor binder and a 15 year old Criollo, Nicaraguan filler. I know a lot of people slam Gurkha as simply an overpriced brand. I’ve been guilty of it myself. But Ed and I have reviewed a few Gurkha’s in the past and had good results. So naturally I was more than happy to …
This week we have our good friends Tom and Ed joining us on Stogie Review. The guys take a close look at the Arturo Fuente Rosado Sungrown Magnum. Before playing the video, read over a short message from Tom.
After a little break from video reviews, Ed and I finally got together again. Both of us tend to gravitate to fuller bodied cigars, but sometimes a mellow, relaxing smoke can fit the occasion. We think this cigar is easy enough

Ed and I are back on The Stogie Review for our monthly guest spot. With his new shop capacity, he is able to carry more brands. This new expansion has created a flurry of activity as well. This kind of threw us off, and you’ll probably notice us getting distracted during the review and a couple mishaps here and …

This will be my first attempt at any type of review as I prefer to read others submissions. I tried to select a cigar from my humidor that had not been reviewed on stogiereview.com. If I overlooked an archived review I apologize for the oversight.
My sense of taste is not as refined as most reviewers so …

Looking through the latest cigar.com catalog last week, a new cigar that immediately caught my eye was the Ave Maria, apparently the latest creation by AJ Fernandez. Billed as a medium-bodied smoke, for some reason I felt compelled to purchase a box on the spot, despite never smoking one of these. I am a big fan of a lot of what AJ has produced, and my humidor was …
Note From Tom:
Ed and I are back and reviewing a cigar from a boutique cigar company called Augusto Reyes. The Signature is a nice medium to full bodied cigar that I never heard of until a couple of weeks ago. This cigar has a flavor profile with nice complexities and subtle nuances that are easy to miss.
The last segment of the video may seemed rushed, but I think we did the cigar justice. There were a few customers
It is that time again folks, Tom and Ed join us once again for their monthly video review. This time the guys smoke the Alec Bradley Vice Press.
It wasn’t planned, but so far in 2010 Ed and I have only reviewed two brands – La Flor Dominicana and Alec Bradley. This time around we are reviewing the Alec Bradley Vice Press. It starts off in the medium body range and gradually builds to a …
