My Father Cigars The Judge Grand Robusto

My Father Cigars The Judge Grand Robusto

My Father Cigars introduced the The Judge in 2016 with two sizes, grand robusto and toro, and added the toro fino in 2017.  The Judge line is a line of all large vitolas with ring gauges of 52 and higher.  The Judge was inspired by a friend of the Garcia family that is a judge and these cigars are larger and stronger than the original My Father lines. My local shops in Houston got these in, but I never tried …

Happy St. Patrick’s Day – Camacho Candela Robusto

Happy St. Patrick’s Day – Camacho Candela Robusto

Its that time of the year again.  The time when we see all the candela wrapper  cigars emerge.  Candela is a historic cigar wrapper which was hugely popular during the turn of the century up until about the 50’s for cigars.  Now, its almost impossible to find a candela cigar….unless it’s St. Patrick’s Day.  The candela wrapper, along with green beer, has become synonymous with St. Patrick’s Day.  Candela gets a bad wrap now because it usually has a bitter …

Undoubtedly Omar de Frias has heard them all, probably daily. (I …

JRE Aladino Cazador

JRE Aladino Cazador

The JRE Aladino was a cigar line I didn’t give much attention to when it first came out.  I’m not exactly sure why because I’ve been a big fan of Camacho Cigars since they first started.  The Eiroa family are the premier growers of corojo which they call “authentic corojo”.  Their “authentic corojo” is how corojo was grown as far back as the 1960s and from the 1930s in Cuba.  Corojo used by most all other cigar manufacturers are hybrids …
