La Flor Dominicana Coronado (Guest Review)

Back once again are our good friends Tom Adcock (Toms Cigars) and Ed Nazare (St. Pete Cigar) for another video cigar review. This time the guys set their sights on the La Flor Dominicana Coronado Double Corona. Due to the recent cold snap in Florida, the video runs a little faster than usual and comes in at around twenty-minutes.

In addition to the review, Tom takes a moment to talk about his cigar of the …

Illusione MJ12 (Joint Guest Review)

This collaborative review comes courtesy of Mike and Tony (Casas Fumando).

Pre-Light:

Mike: Tony, would you like to start your pre-light inspection?

Tony: Will do, I’ll be taking the foil off now. Let me just state for the record that it’s great presentation. I can’t imagine how enticing it is to open up a full box of these.

Mike: I agree on the presentation – One of a kind!

Perdomo Lot 23 Maduro (Twitter Review)

Perdomo Lot 23 Maduro (Twitter Review)

A couple of weeks back, Stogie Review had our very first Stogie Review Tweet-View (Twitter Review). It was unofficial and something that I decided to try with some of the people I converse with on Twitter. The turn out was great and all participants seemed to have a great time reviewing the Carlos Torano Exodus 1959 Silver.

About a week later I scheduled the next Tweet-View and gave everyone an additional week to track down a Perdomo Lot
