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 …
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 …

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 …
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 …
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 …
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 …
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 …
This week I have the Nica Puro Diamond Rough Cut which is the regular Nica Puro with an extra leaf in the filler and smooshed into a diamond shape.
Starting out this Nica Puro Diamond Rough Cut with a real woody base with a sort of a punch of spice mainly on the aftertaste at the back of the tongue. Little more strength than I remember the regular nica puro having. Halfway is giving some dark coffee with the …
