Tatuaje Fausto FT153

Jim - (Portland, OR, USA)

Being a creature of habit, there are a few local B&M's that I have never been to, usually opting for one of the 3 on my side of town.

Finding myself nearby, I stopped in one of these previously unexplored shops and quickly found myself face-to-face with the Tatuaje Fausto FT153 (6x50, $7.50); Fausto's have not yet made an appearance at the shops I usually frequent.

1964 Partagas Anniversary Series Cigar

Dennis - (USA - Marin County CA)

The 1964 Partagas anniversary series cigar is a very good cigar. It is Ultra smooth with spicy notes of cocoa and black pepper. Even burn good all the way down to the last puff.

Montecristo No.2 Cigar Review

J.R. - (Chicago)

To borrow a term from my 14 year old daughter... "OMG, this is just SO delicious!" The Montecristo No.2 Cigar is now officially my all-time favorite cigar.

Ok, so I may not have traveled the world smoking every brand, and I've only been smoking for 4 or 5 years now, but in the 20 or so different cigars I have smoked, the Montecristo No.2 is just hands down a near religious experience.

El Primer Mundo Double Torpedo Edged Cigar Review

Cameron M - (Fort Lewis WA)

This El Primer Mundo Double Torpedo Edged cigar will always have a special place in my cigar life. I used to go into a local shop back at home called "Maxwell's Cigar Bar" this man taught me everything I know about cigars.

Partagas 898 Cuban Cigar Review

guillermo - (guillermo@gms-cr.com)

Partagas 898 Cuban Cigar Review
When it comes to rating the cigar brands, Partagas 898, an amazing installment by Partagas Cuban Cigars, definitely is considered the top notch amongst all the other brands. 

The brand got it’s because of the cigar arrangement in the box being three rows of eight then nine and then eight again devising 898. These cigars are essentially Lonsdale cigars and have been known for their robust flavor.

Cuban Cohiba Esplendidos Cigar Review

Cuban Cohiba Esplendidos Cigar Review
The Cuban Cohiba Esplendidos cigar belongs to the LINEA CLASICA and holds the place among the oldest and the finest Cohiba Cuban Cigars. 

This variant offers a strong taste with a blended flavor of sugary touches. It also contains some spicy hues. All these are combined to form an amazing mix. It has a scented aroma which carries a deep mystic touch. The earthy and woody flavours can also be appreciated at some places.

The Drew Estate 41/2 X 40 Java Latte Petite Corona - Cigar Review

Joseph T. Harley, Jr. - (Philadelphia, PA. USA)

This is a cigar that is a product of skilled hand craftsmen. The aroma is sweet and alluring. The taste is sweet, particularly to the touch of the lips and reception of the palate. 

This is a smoke that is not only great with coffee (of course), but would be the perfect chaser to any meal. 

The perfect blend of tobacco, easy burn, and rich mild flavor makes this an enjoyable relaxation tool for any cigar lover.

Cigars Reviews

Lorenzo - (Manila, Philippines)

I personally think, Northern Cigars features the strongest flavored cigars in the country as compared to its competitors, Tabaqueria and Tabacalera. Their half coronas are the ideal short smoke.

Jim Delorme - (Denver Co.)

San Teodoro Premium Mexican Cigar Review
I come from a Spanish family so we smoke a lot (cigars that is) I have been smoking cigars for more than 12 years now, you could say I am very savvy cigar enthusiast with lots of experience, I have never written a cigar review before but after smoking a San Teodoro Mexican cigar I thought the cigar truly deserves one.

La Maceda Perfecto Seleccion de Banquettes c. 1931
A great smoke after a rich meal. Smooth draw and earthy notes. 100% Philippine tobacco. Believed to have been manufactured by the S. Frieder & Sons Company. Can anyone provide any history to confirm?

Zino Z-Class Platinum

Nick Anderson - (Colorado Springs, CO)

Zino Classic
Zino Platinum Z Class

Size: 5X50 Robusto
Wrapper: Dominican
Binder: Peruvian 
Filler: Honduras, Nicaragua

This cigar was great out of the cellophane. Construction felt great. The wrapper was medium-brown and was slightly toothy and had a couple of very small veins. The cigar had a great pre-light aroma that was very strong with earthiness and tobacco. The cigar felt very tight. There were no soft or spongy areas. The cap snipped of easily and the cold draw produced a great draw with great tobacco flavors.

Drew Estate Liga Privada No.9

Eric - (Miami, Florida)

This is a great cigar. The palate appreciates the notes this cigar provides. Its nutty taste and nice aroma is wonderful. Not for the faint at heart..It's a pretty strong cigar but i enjoyed it to the fullest..its also not cheap but well constructed and worth a try!!

Drew Estate Java Mint

Nick Anderson - (Colorado Springs, CO)

Size: Corona
Wrapper: Brazilian Mata Fina maduro
Filler: Nicaraguan Long Filler

Let me start by saying that I am always a little nervous about smoking any kind of flavored or infused cigar. It seems that most flavored cigars are the cheapest tobacco the manufacturer can get and then they throw some flavoring on top of it to try and cover that up. Too often it is far too easy to forget that you are smoking a cigar because the flavoring covers up any hint of tobacco.
