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 …
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 …
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 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 …

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 …

Welcome to this weeks review of da Mike Ditka Throwback by Camacho. This cigar is available in one size (6×50) and comes in boxes of 10 coffins. This was an impulse buy as Genuine Tobacco only had one full box and priced at $10 a stick or box for $100 it was easier on …
‘Whats old is new’ has been a phrase I have been using a lot lately. I’ve been doing my fair share of revisiting some of the cigars that we smoked back in the early days of Stogie Review. The cigar smoker today is a different creature from a cigar smoker from 2006. Back in 2006 the whole 6×60 ring gauge was in it’s infancy and The Nub size was all the rage. With all the recent turmoil in Washington DC …
Welcome to my first video in a while. I know, some of you are rejoicing and others are yelling at the computer asking why I had to come back. After the water leaks, ceiling falling down, roof repairs, etc etc, I am back with a little something different. I got a text from my local shop (Genuine Tobacco) that said they got the new Tatuaje Jason in. I was stoked! After texting some of the guys and finding out they …
