All Out Kings Smash

All Out Kings Smash

All Out Kings was one of the most high anticipated releases from IPCPR 2016.  The All Out Kings is a collaboration with Caldwell Cigars and Drew Estate Cigars.  Both companies are known to push the boundaries in the cigar world so them collaborating on a cigar is not a surprise.  The brainchild of Robert Caldwell, Willy Herrera and Jonathan Drew, this would be Caldwell’s first Nicaraguan cigar.  The cigar will be distributed though Caldwell Cigars using tobaccos from La Gran …

Le Veil iCigar® DCH-60b Electronic Humidifer

Le Veil iCigar® DCH-60b Electronic Humidifer

Well howdy, today I am going to take a look at a new humidifier I recently purchased, the Le Veil iCigar® DCH-60b. This humidifier is made for larger humidors and could fit nicely into a tower humidor or a large end table humidor. It has a MSRP of $199.95 but you can find it for around $170. I bought mine from Thompson Cigar and even used a coupon ( CIGAR20 ) to get another $20 off (might expire 6-30-2017 …

Cohiba Blue Robusto

Cohiba Blue Robusto

This week I lit up the latest addition to the Cohiba brand, the more accessibly priced Cohiba Blue. When Ben and I were down in the Dominican Republic touring the General Cigar facilities we got to see the boxes being painted in the factory. The process was fascinating to watch and I’ve been looking forward to trying them ever since. But before we get into the review, here’s an excerpt from the press release:

Cohiba has always been synonymous with

Guaimaro Robusto

Guaimaro Robusto

Guaimaro Cigars is the brainchild of Esteban Disla, co-owner of Nica Sueno, the cigar factory of RoMa Craft cigars.  Disla partnered up with Skip Martin and Mike Rosales to create RoMa Craft Tobac which produces some of the hot cigars on the market.  RoMa Craft’s most famous of which are the Cromagnon and Aquitaine lines, but Disla didn’t have his own line until they unveiled the Guimaro at the 2016 IPCPR.  I was pretty excited to see this cigar as …

Caldwell Blind Man’s Bluff Robusto

Caldwell Blind Man’s Bluff Robusto

I’m switching things up again this week. My schedule made it difficult to set aside the time it takes to do a video, so I thought I’d borrow a page from Ben’s book do a written review. Or is that steal a page? I’m also swiping most of his format for this review as well.

I’ve spent most of my smoking time this week puffing on Caldwell’s Blind Man’s Bluff, with a review in mind. Walking through the local humidor, …

Crowned Heads Las Mareas Olas

Crowned Heads Las Mareas Olas

The Las Mareas was released in 2016 by Crowned Heads as a more Cubanesque style cigar than the rest of the lines.  The cigars were first released in limited quantities with a single silk ribbon at the foot in two sizes and then had a full release at IPCPR in 2016 in four sizes.  The cigars are made by My Father in their factory in Nicaragua.  Las Mareas means “tide” in Spanish and each vitola is named after a specific …

Avo Improvisation Limited Edition 2017

Avo Improvisation Limited Edition 2017

The Avo Limited Edition cigars are always really good cigars and this year’s Improvisation should be no exception.  This year’s Avo limited edition is a first on two fronts.  One, it’s a box press cigar and, two, it’s in a 60 ring gauge.  I’m glad they did a box press when they decided to do a 60 ring because the box press makes it more comfortable to smoke.  Pretty much everyone knows by now that I’m not a fan of …

Partagas Ramon y Ramon Maxim Grande

Partagas Ramon y Ramon Maxim Grande


There are a number of reasons to review the Partagas Ramon y Ramon. To begin with, we haven’t yet. That is generally reason enough. Then there’s the whole regenerated vintage tobacco thing. That’s also interesting. But the real reason I’m lighting up the Ramon y Ramon this week is that I won a box on my trip to the Dominican Republic based on my blending, bunching and rolling skills in the General Cigar factory. And each one tastes like victory. …

Aguila Cigars – Flight Review – CONTEST (Contest ended)

Aguila Cigars – Flight Review – CONTEST (Contest ended)

I was recently approached by iHavanas to review their new Aguila cigar line produced in Nicaragua.  iHavanas is mainly known for being one of the premier sellers of Cuban cigars, but with the growing interest in Europe for Nicaraguan cigars, iHavanas has brought out their own Nicaragua cigar for this new and growing fan base.  Not much is known about the blend except that it’s a Nicaraguan blend.  Here is the information I have on the Aguila, which means “eagle” …

Davidoff Anniversario No. 3 702 Series

Davidoff Anniversario No. 3 702 Series

Davidoff released a new series called the 702 Series in February 2017.  The 702 Series use a special Ecuadorian Habano wrapper grown exclusively for these cigars at the San Juan finca near Cotopaxi in Ecuador.  The tobacco is a hybrid of 3 cuban seed habano tobaccos.  The farm is set in the foothills of the Andes mountains with volcanic soil making the growing area rich with nutrients and covered by clouds most of the year.  The wrapper replaces the Ecuadorian …
