La Aurora Corojo

La Aurora Corojo

Years ago, when I first began visiting local cigar shops, I developed a bad habit of avoiding anything from La Aurora with the old-school-looking lion band. No matter what size or shape I tried, I just couldn’t enjoy it, no matter how hard I tried. That early distaste for the cigar still causes a bit of prejudice towards the line today.

When I first got word about the La Aurora Corojo, I was excited. Being a bit of a …

Davidoff Millennium Blend Lancero

Davidoff Millennium Blend Lancero

This morning I woke up to a variety of alerts on my phone. The first one I read was in reference to a review of a Swisher Electronic Cigar on Stogie Review. While I’m a firm believer in a united cigar smoking community, I struggled with the concept of such a product being reviewed here. Is today April 1st already?

For this occasion, I wanted to go to the complete opposite end of the spectrum and review an Ultra …

What do you get when you sit down and record a cigar review much earlier than usual? If this review is any indication, you forget to finalize it and wind up with a review that is almost a day late! Thats alright though, better late that never, eh?

Last week I revisited the Cabaiguan Guapos by way of a Short Ashes Review. The cigar, among others, came in a care package sent to me ny Jerry. This review is another …

Cabaiguan (Short Ashes)

Cabaiguan (Short Ashes)

Early this week Jerry was kind enough to send me a package of cigars to enjoy. I wasted no time in turning them to smoke and ash. Suddenly it dawned on me, perhaps I should turn some of these sticks into ‘Short Ashes’ Cigar Reviews and revisit some of the smokes we have reviewed in the past?

The bad news is that I put a serious hurtin’ on the package of cigars before the idea hit me. The good news …

Abel’s Premium Selection

Abel’s Premium Selection

Back around Christmas I recieved an email from Abel Florez of Florez Tobacconist in Summit New Jersey. In that email Abel began telling me about a cigar he had created by Ernesto Perez Carrillo and asked if I would be interested in reviewing it. Being a borderline Ernesto Perez Carrillo Fanboi, I was eager to give it a try.

I received the cigars in short order and was a little surprised when I opened the box. The box, which contained …
