The Griffin’s Nicaragua Robusto

The Griffin’s Nicaragua Robusto


My local shop introduced me to The Griffin’s Nicaragua a while back. The didn’t bring a lot of them in, at least as far as I can tell, but they told me it was good and I should try it. I bought one and my initial experience was positive. As I smoked it, I thought it’d be a fun cigar to review. When was the last time you smoked a The Griffin’s cigar? I know it’s been years for me. …

What are you drinking with a cigar these days?

Last Friday I spent a few hours at my local archery club, doing prep-work for the upcoming 3D Season.

I have to admit….I didn’t smoke them until I went on the Davidoff factory tour in the Dominican Republic. Each morning we had breakfast with some amazing Dominican coffee and were presented with the Short …

Holey Cello: Is that a Bug or a Feature?

A couple of weeks ago I was hanging out at Sir Stogies when the topic of cigar reps came up. I had asked the owner, Tim, if anyone had been in recently and he mentioned that the rep for Espinosa Cigars was scheduled to be stopping by in a couple of days. I’ve always enjoyed meeting up with reps and thought it would be a good opportunity to get caught up on the brand.

A few days later, myself and …
