Casa Fernandez Aniversario 2014

Casa Fernandez Aniversario 2014

Early last week I came home from work to find a package waiting for me on my front porch. I glanced at the shipping label and got all excited. It isn’t very often that I receive samples from Casa Fernandez but when they arrive, they tend to be a rare treat.

I wasted no time and immediately lit up one of my Casa Fernandez Aniversario 2014 Cigars. The smoke was a bit bolder than I was anticipating but it …

Pairings: CAO Flathead V450 Sparkplug & Flying Dog The Truth

Disclaimer: For full disclosure, CAO Cigars is a paid advertiser and supporter of Stogie Review. With that said, the cigars and beer for this pairing were purchased by me.

Note: Initially this video was to be part of a single post that would compliment the Week in Smoke: Art of Craft Edition. Originally I was going to do three videos that would go along with the four pairings CAO and Flying Dog created. After some great feedback I decided

Indian Tobac Super Fuerte Natural

Indian Tobac Super Fuerte Natural

Last week, Jerry and I were discussing my current commute cigar dilemma. In the morning, when I leave my house before 5:00am, my ride to work takes roughly 35 minutes. No matter what I seem to select as a commute cigar, I always wind up throwing away a portion of it.

First I tried a Nub Connecticut. While it was an enjoyable cigar, I wound up pitching about half of it. Next I tried the Guerrilla Warfare from Viva

Casa Miranda Chapter Two by Nestor Miranda

Casa Miranda Chapter Two by Nestor Miranda

Last week I set aside a little time to get out to Sir Stogies for a Miami Cigar Event. It has been a while since I’ve attended an event and I thought it would be a great opportunity to meet up with my local rep, Chris Lenzo, and get caught up on what I’ve missed being without a local B&M.

While I was at the event, I picked up a handful of cigars, the first of which to be reviewed …

Punch Rare Corojo

Punch Rare Corojo

Before we get into the review, I want to point out that this video is slightly dated. A couple of weeks ago I was preparing to move to my new home. Not wanting to miss a week, I recorded a review of the Punch Rare Corojo the night before my big move.

On the day of the move, I grabbed the SD Card out of my camera and planned on editing and posting later that week. When it came time …

Week In Smoke – The Art of Craft

Disclaimer: For full disclosure, the cigars and beer provided for this edition of Week in Smoke were samples provided by CAO Cigars and Flying Dog. Who doesn’t like free beer and cigars? CAO is also a paid advertiser with us.

A new format for the Week in Smoke series. Hopefully the video clips instead of images from my Instagram feed will be well received.

I’m not very knowledgable with beer, the brewing process, components, ingredients or even the lingo …

Sancho Panza Double Maduro

Sancho Panza Double Maduro

It is kind of funny that with IPCPR on the horizon and my last Week in Smoke mainly containing new releases that I turn to the Sancho Panza Double Maduro. With Walt recently reviewing the Sancho Panza Extra Fuerte I thought this would compliment his review. Plus, with us trying to get back to basics and focus on having fun than dealing with some of the bullshit that has come our way over the course of the last eight …

Nat Sherman 1930 (Short Ashes)

Nat Sherman 1930 (Short Ashes)

A few weeks ago I received a surprise email from the folks over at Nat Sherman. They asked if I would be interested in trying their Nat Sherman 1930 and possibly putting together a review. Times are tough and I’m in no position to turn down cigars, so I gratefully accepted.

A short time later I received three Nat Sherman 1930 cigars in the mail. I wasted no time and began smoking them in preparation for a review. Out of …

Macanudo 1968 (Short Ashes)

Macanudo 1968 (Short Ashes)

Over the weekend I found myself in a particularly good mood and inspiration to record a cigar review struck. I cracked open my coolidor with the intention of digging around for something interesting. Before I could move a single cigar, I spotted a Macanudo 1968 perched on the top of the pile.

Prior to the review, I hadn’t smoked a Macanudo 1968 in a long while. Come to think of it, I hadn’t seen mention of it anywhere online in …

Azul Vintage 2008 (First Impressions)

Azul Vintage 2008 (First Impressions)

Several weeks back I got an awesome care package from Jerry Cruz. Inside the package was a number of cigars I hadn’t had the pleasure of smoking yet. One of them was the Azul Vintage 2008 from Epicurean Cigars – Distributed by House of Emilio.

Lighting up the Azul Vintage 2008, I really didn’t know what I was getting myself into. The last time I smoked anything associated with Steve Ysidron, it was when he was with Savinelli. …
