Perdomo Double Aged SunGrown 12 Year Salomon

Perdomo Double Aged SunGrown 12 Year Salomon

Cigar

This week I take on a super long named cigar, the Perdomo Double Aged SunGrown 12 Year in the Salomon shape. These are available in Connecticut, sungrown and maduro wrappers and I hope to try each one but probably in different vitolas since the salomon runs $12 MSRP.

Again my tablet decided to freak out and scrub my notes so its gonna be short. You always can watch that video to get more information.

Starting out the Perdomo Double

Punch Signature

Punch Signature

As much as I like to think I am young and hip, when it comes to the marketing of cigars, I am a traditionalist at heart. I don’t like flashy packaging (does anyone remember the lighted CAO Vision boxes?) and detest a cigar which comes with its own gimmicky back-story (ORTSAC 1962 and the Cuban Missile Crisis).

Last week, when a five-pack of Punch Signature Cigars arrived in the mail, I was torn. The new Punch Signature had a …

Romeo Anejo

Romeo Anejo

Cigar

Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf Vintage 2010
Binder: Dominican Olor Vintage 2008
Filler: Nicaraguan and Honduran Vintage 2009

This week I have a go with the Romeo Anejo in the Toro size (54×6) that has a MSRP of $9.00.

Starting out this Romeo Anejo with a smoothness up front and a sharpness on the aftertaste. Getting a lot of dark coffee coming through with a cinnamon spice. About halfway through and still a low medium at best. There is …

Blending Seminar from Jason Holly of Viva Republica

Blending Seminar from Jason Holly of Viva Republica

Hello my friends, this week I am finally able to get this video uploaded of Jason Holly of Viva Republica who was nice enough to come to Genuine Tobacco and do a blending seminar for all of us. This was a great event and I got to involved with the video rather than pictures or you could see how crowded it was. I will direct you to – Lancaster Cigar Vice Crew on Meetup – for more photos and if …

L’Atelier Lancero

L’Atelier Lancero

Cigar

This week I take a look at the L’Atelier Lancero cigar. I really tossed it around a lot whether I was going to post this because it seems like I got a dud. After smoking it I checked out other reviews and I did not get any of the flavors they did and that is why I think this one may have been a dud. It is hard with not being able to smoke during the week and having …

East India Company Classic Cigar Havana Blend Robusto

East India Company Classic Cigar Havana Blend Robusto

It doesn’t matter how often it happens, getting cigars in the mail is always a source of happiness, especially when it’s unexpected. Back in December, the people at Gurkha sent me just such a surprise- the East India Company Classic Cigar Havana Blend Robusto. The name’s quite a mouthful, and the band is equally large, but thankfully, the dark, box-pressed stick is a comfortable 52 ring gauge. I’ve been smoking them casually since, getting fully acquainted with the cigar. …

Vega Fina Nicaragua

Vega Fina Nicaragua

Cigar

This week I have the Vega Fina Nicaragua in the Gran Toro (6×52) size for your viewing pleasure. This retails for $6.25 and is out there now. There are also two other sizes available, robusto (5×50) and a short corona (4 3/8×42).

This Vega Fina Nicaragua starts off with a huge coating of flavor on the palate. Getting some sweet hay, cappuccino and a woody base. The coffee is not bitter but more …

Evil Genius Cigars

Evil Genius Cigars

This week I had the chance to sit down with one half of the guys over at Evil Genius Cigars to get the dirt on what they are making, who they are and everything in between. I have not done one of these interviews on Stogie Review for a long time so I hope you all enjoy it.

Herfin Heads – Señor Rio Añejo Toro (And Tequila)

Herfin Heads – Señor Rio Añejo Toro (And Tequila)

In this episode of Herfin’ Heads, Brian and Ben take a look at two things named “Señor Rio Añejo”- a cigar and a tequila. Spoiler, we like one of them a lot more than the other. To find out which, you’ll have to watch the video below.

Note: It’s the Herfin’ Heads they didn’t want you to see. And by “they” I mean Skype, my video editing software and my computer. All of them suffered some sort of terrible failure

La Flor Dominicana 1994

La Flor Dominicana 1994

Cigar

This week I have the La Flor Dominicana 1994 which was made to celebrate the 20 years LFD has been around.

Starting off the La Flor Dominicana 1994 with a meaty smoke up front with a generous dollop of wood and a medium amount of spice. Has a bite to it but not so much of the power that gets associated with LFD normally. Has a little bit of a sour note but only on the aftertaste. There is …
