La Aurora ADN Dominicano/Dominican DNA Toro

La Aurora ADN Dominicano Toro

La Aurora introduced the ADN Dominicano or, DNA Dominican, at IPCPR in 2017.  This new cigar features an interesting new tobacco that is rarely used in cigars called Andullo.  Andullo is a tobacco that is aged in tight twist or ropes that was wrapped in palm/yuca leaves to age.  This creates a very dense pack of tobacco that is usually used as plug or chewing tobacco.  La Aurora uses a whole Andullo leave in the …

Ben’s Week in Smoke – No. 16

Ben’s Week in Smoke – No. 16

Warped Lirio Rojo

Just one of my staples.  I consider this one of the best, if not the best cigar from Warped.  It’s a perfect size with a medium body and great flavor.  It’s the Goldilocks of Warped….not too strong, not too weak, not too small, not too large, etc.  I mean, it was my No. 2 Cigar of the Year for 2016.

It’s that time of year, and I caught whatever crud du jour that was going around. I don’t know for sure, but I think it was a mild case of whooping cholera. It really took the wind of my sails for a couple weeks, and also the …

Week in Smoke – 10/25/2017

Week in Smoke – 10/25/2017

I have a huge backlog of cigars I want to review before the end of the year, but time is running out on me.  Some cigars I want to get to, might not make it, which is why I love when we do these Week in Smoke.  Its a good way to showcase some cigars we’ve been smoking lately that we might not get a full review out on or it might be awhile until we can create one.
