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 …

San Lotano Oval Connecticut by AJ Fernandez

San Lotano Oval Connecticut by AJ Fernandez

A few years back Cigars International Introduced the Man O’ War Line of cigars by AJ Fernandez. The Man O War Ruination was a smash hit and came highly recommended by Jerry Cruz. Ever since the Man O’ War, AJ Fernandez has become a household name among cigar smokers.

As AJ Fernandez become more successful, he launched the San Lotano lineup. I fell in love with the Oval and purchased it as often as my budget allowed. As much …

Herfin’ Heads: L’Atelier Extension de la Racine ER13

Herfin’ Heads: L’Atelier Extension de la Racine ER13

In this very special episode of Herfin’ Heads Ben does not confront a high school bully, while Brian also does not learn a thing or two from a hard-nosed Driver’s Ed teacher. Instead Ben and Brian journey once again into the realm of cigar reviews to discuss the L’Atelier Extension de la Racine ER13. Along the way Brian struggles with pronunciations and invents the “Double Raptor” while Ben confuses Sancti Spiritus tobacco with Pelo de Oro and throws around words …

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.

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 …

Herfin’ Heads: Davidoff 2014 Year Of The Horse

In this very special episode of Herfin’ Heads, Ben and Brian take a look at the latest annual limited edition from Davidoff, the 2014 Year of the Horse, and Ben talks about that moment when he first “got” Davidoff cigars. Enjoy!

For those of you who don’t take kindly to moving pictures and prefer your cigar reviews in text, in brief, both Brian and Ben really enjoyed the Davidoff 2014 Year of the Horse and recommend trying it if you …

Asylum 13 – Sixty

Asylum 13 – Sixty

This has been a rough year in the White Household. With Christmas right around the corner, I’ve been sticking to the deal sights to try and stretch by cigar budget as much as possible. Doing this doesn’t provide much variety but I’ve been able to stock my humidor with some pretty good buys.

A little while back I was pleasantly surprised by the Asylum Premium and have since been interested in trying the other Asylum offerings. When the Asylum 13

Casa Fernandez Aniversario Boheme

Casa Fernandez Aniversario Boheme

A few weeks ago I came home from work to find a package waiting for me. Inside the package was a note, t-shirt, and several cigar samples from Casa Fernandez. It has been quite a while since I’ve smoked a Casa Fernandez Cigar but I’ve had excellent luck with the lines. With my expectations set very high, I was eager to dig in and start smoking.

On a whim, I grabbed the bag containing a pair or Casa Fernandez Aniversario …
