Cigar and Wine Pairings: La Aurora 107 and Gnarly Head Zin

This Guest Article was provided by our friend Matt Horbund of A Good Time With Wine. After reading this article and watching the video, be sure to head over to A Good Time With Wine for more wine related videos and information.


Smoking a cigar means different things for different people. For some, it’s a ritual, the way they start the day, or end it. For others, it’s a social thing, something they do with friends as a way …

La Flor Dominicana Air Bender (Guest Review)

The following is a message from Tom

Hello Stogie Review! As always, Ed and I offer you our monthly guest review for the month of April.

A month or two ago, Ed was given some samples of the Air Bender by La Flor Dominicana. He smoked one immediately and wasn’t impressed at all. Then I saw Stogie Review’s own Brian Hewett review this cigar, and he wasn’t impressed either. This left us with low expectation to say the least.…

Tatuaje L’esprit de Verite – Pre Release (Guest Review)

Tatuaje L’esprit de Verite – Pre Release (Guest Review)

I am a huge Tatuaje fan, but I wasn’t always. The first experience I had with a Tatuaje was a miserable one. It was a Havana VI Almirantes I had several years ago that was so poorly constructed I could not even smoke it. So I stayed away from the brand for some time.

Then, one of my friends was nice enough to share a Havana VI Angeles …

Tatuaje J21 (Guest Review)

Tatuaje J21 (Guest Review)

from the Stogie Review Fan Forums

The Reserva line of cigars is an extension of Tatuajes Selección de Cazador line (Miami or Cabinet if you prefer). There are 4 (5 if you count the SW Maduro) sizes: The SW (“Sir Winston” a churchill), A Uno (“A”), Noellas, and the J21 (robusto). The Reserva line is blended to be a milder version of the Miami, yet with added complexity. The blend is identical in …

Alec Bradley Tempus (Guest Review)


Ed and I have returned for our monthly guest review here on The Stogie Review. This time around we review the Alec Bradley Tempus. This is Alec Bradley’s flagship cigar, and is my top pick for 2009. I find myself smoking them on a regular basis to this day. Brian and Walt reviewed the Tempus awhile back, so I thought it was fitting that Ed and I have a go at it.

I had a hard time picking …

Illusione 4/2g (Guest Review)

This review comes courtesy of beaverc32

Cigar Facts:

Vitola: Churchill (7.5×49)
Price: ~$9-10 (the one reviewed was gifted via bomb)
Wrapper: Cafe Colorado
Binder: Corojo ’99 and Criollo ’98?
Filler: Corojo ’99 and Criollo ’98?

The Illusione 4/2g is a beautiful cigar with a fairly smooth wrapper. For the length of this cigar, I find the weight of this cigar to be fairly light. The cigar seems firmly packed with tobacco, and the only …

Los Blancos Nine Lancero (Guest Review)

Before I start, Dave Blanco is a friend of mine and I really enjoy a number of his cigars. That being said, if he made a dog rocket I would not hesitate to tell him, and he knows it.

So lets get to it:

I am a fan of the Nine. I think they are a great full bodied stick. When Dave gave me this cigar …

Alec Bradley Prensado (Guest Review)

A Note from Tom:
Ed and I are back once again for our monthly guest spot here on The Stogie Review. It’s hard to believe we’ve been here for two years!

If you watched our January video, I put Ed on the spot and asked what his top cigar was for 2009. My choice was the Alec Bradley Tempus. He came up with the cigar we are reviewing today, the Alec Bradley Prensado.

I can’t deny …

Tatuaje RC184 (Guest Review)

Tatuaje RC184 (Guest Review)

This review comes courtesy of Rich (BootyRock)
from the Stogie Review Fan Forums

The RC cigars (RC meaning “Retro Cuban”) are two unique figurados. They feature half of the cigar wrapped in foil (the head), and the names (numbers) relate to the size in millimeters. Blended to be milder than the regular Miami line. Little else is known about this blend, aka, I can’t find much info on them.
These cigars are not regular production…Pete tends to release these on …
