Davidoff Florida Selection Limited Edition 2018

Davidoff Florida Selection Limited Edition 2018

The Florida Sun Grown tobacco has been around for quite awhile in several cigar blends, but none seem to have really made the tobacco shine.  Davidoff decided to give it a try by introducing the Davidoff Florida Selection.  The Davidoff Florida Selection was introduced in October 2018 to appointed merchants and Davidoff flagship stores in the United States.  The cigar blends the Florida Sun Grown tobacco with Davidoff’s Yamasa tobacco to give the cigar a unique smoking flavor.  Here is …

At IPCPR 2018, Warped Cigars introduced a few new cigar lines including the Warped Cigars Gran Reserva 1988.  The cigar was blended to commemorate the birth year of Warped Cigars founder, Kyle Gellis.  We talked to Kyle about the Gran Reserva 1988, along with other topics, at IPCPR 2018 which you can watch here.  The cigar is available in one size with a MSRP of $9.00 and is a Nicaraguan Puro using Aganorsa tobaccos.

Tatuaje Monster Series The Bride

Tatuaje Monster Series The Bride

It’s Monster season again. If it feels more foreboding than your typical October that could be because the cigar I’m reviewing today, the Tatuaje Monster Series The Bride, is the terminal release of the popular series. We got on this spooky train back in 2008 with The Frank, and fittingly The Bride is our final destination. There’s a nice symmetry to it all.

But before we stitch together the meat of this review, sad fans of the Monster Series have …

Balmoral Anejo XO Connecticut Gran Toro

Balmoral Anejo XO Connecticut Gran Toro

One of my favorite cigars that has been released in the past 5 years has been the Balmoral Anejo XO by Royal Agio, so I was really excited to visit their booth at the 2018 IPCPR show in Las Vegas.  Royal Agio had a distribution deal with Drew Estate to distribute the Balmoral line in the US with the Balmoral Anejo XO and Balmoral Anejo 18 Limited Edition.  I was blown away by both cigars so I was excited to …

Dunbarton Tobacco and Trust Sin Compromiso Selección No. 5 Parejo

Dunbarton Tobacco and Trust Sin Compromiso Selección No. 5 Parejo

One of the most anticipated releases for IPCPR this year was the Sin Compromiso from Dunbarton Tobacco and Trust. The Sin Compromiso is made with some of the best tobaccos available which took Steve Saka 3 years to get the blend right. Dunbarton Tobacco and Trust uses unique tobaccos for the Sin Compromiso that I’ve personally never heard of before. We sat down with Steve to talk about the new releases including the Sin Compromiso which you can watch here

Cornelius by Cornelius and Anthony Cigars

Cornelius by Cornelius and Anthony Cigars

It has been a while since I’ve sat down with the intention of reviewing a cigar. These days I spend most of my time being a father to three young girls while trying to grow a brand new business. That isn’t to say that I’m retired from Stogie Review – most of my time on the site comes in the form of running updates and managing the back-end of things.

Last week I was given the opportunity to dip …

IPCPR 2018: 22 Minutes with Pete Johnson

IPCPR 2018: 22 Minutes with Pete Johnson

No trade show coverage is complete without chat with Pete Johnson at his usual place behind the bar in the Tatuaje booth. This year we lucked out and caught Pete on the first day, which was the day following the premier of his passion project, Hand Rolled: A Film About Cigars. So we get started talking about the documentary, what he thought of the final (or near final) product, plans for distribution (Netflix is a possibility), and the potential …

IPCPR 2018: Xikar

IPCPR 2018: Xikar

Up next we drop by Xikar to talk to Kurt and Suzanne about new cigar accessories. They show us their new single, flat-flame lighter in a variety of finishes, which retails for $80. Antique bronze is a good look, and it’s a fast mover for Xikar. We also check out a lighter with red prism fuel windows that creates a “blade of flame” with three torches that angle to a point. And then there’s Kurt’s favorite, the $69 scratch-resistant Turismo …
