CAO Rabid Reindeer – Christmas 2014

CAO Rabid Reindeer – Christmas 2014

Cigar

This CAO Rabid Reindeer is based on the CAO MX2 but again, like all the other Christmas CAO cigars the blend has been tweaked for this release. Starts off at a medium with a softer pepper and some coffee. The coffee has a bit of sweetness to it that takes the bitterness away. Came into a citrusy taste in the first inch that added a tangy component into the mix.

Halfway through the band and still a medium range …

CAO Nasty Nutcracker – Christmas 2014

CAO Nasty Nutcracker – Christmas 2014

Cigar

I love these boxes. It is a nice departure from normal holiday samplers and such.

This CAO Nasty Nutcracker is based on the CAO Gold line but has been tweaked to be a little bolder than the normal line. Starting out it has a bit of spice at the beginning which I have gotten on the regular gold cigars but has usually dissipated quickly. Mild nutty start as would be expected but will be interesting to see how the …

Continuing the Pudgy series this week with the Tatuaje Pudgy Monsters Jason from the Pudgy set Pete released. This set was a gift from Todd and Rick.

Cigar

Starting out this Tatuaje Pudgy Monsters Jason with a huge blast of pepper right up front that is overpowering everything but a slight woodiness. This may sound crazy but I just got what tasted like pepperoni. One of those tastes that just hits you and …

This Tatuaje Pudgy Monsters Face has two little rips down the back of the “label” that make it look like ties for a leather mask. It’s pretty cool.

Tatuaje Jekyll – Group First Impressions

Tatuaje Jekyll – Group First Impressions

Have a special review for you today of the Tatuaje Jekyll. I got together with some friends at Genuine Tobacco and did another group first impressions (except for Todd, it was his third). I was joined by Jon, Rick and Todd with Dave in the peanut gallery because he won’t get in front of the camera.

This was a group of guys having fun, smoking a cigar and hopefully giving you some good information on it to see if …

Continuing the Pudgy series this week with the Tatuaje Pudgy Monsters Drac from the Pudgy set Pete released. This set was a gift from Todd AND Rick.

Cigar

This Tatuaje Pudgy Monsters Drac is a belicoso that reminds you of a stake or maybe a vampire tooth.
