Whiskey Barrel Coffee reached out to us to see if we would assist them in evaluating how their coffee pairs with cigars. I was very intrigued as whiskey and cigars are a fairly common pairing and coffee and cigars are another typical pairing. I was interested to see how this product that combined both of those drink aspects would pair with cigars.
“This is a cigar I would smoke any day of the week. It’s malty chocolate like sweetness really hit the spot. The giant plumes of smoke from the looser draw were quite enticing as well. The only thing I can hold against this one was that it had a very similar flavor profile throughout, however don’t let that stop you from trying one at all, especially if it is priced right!” –John A.

"This cigar offered a fairly solid smoke. The milder flavors transitioned nicely for the first two thirds. Once the leather left during the final third, the cigar developed a bit of harshness while the remaining flavors failed to achieve much of a balance." -Gregg (McGreggor57)
Famous 75th Padrón 1926 Series cigars are made in one size, a 5" x 54 box-pressed robusto rolled in two wrapper choices – Nicaraguan Habano natural or Nicaraguan Habano maduro. Presented in boxes of 10 cigars, these puros are exquisitely handcrafted with 5-year-aged Nicaraguan tobaccos offering a smooth, creamy, well-balanced smoke brimming with Padrón's signature earthy-spicy, full-bodied flavor profile. Only 3,000 boxes have been made, and like all Padrón Cigars, they will have individual, serial-numbered cigar bands.
A milder version of the Padrón brand—a Nicaraguan cigar draped in blonde Connecticut-seed wrapper and shaped in the round, rather than pressed square—is poised to be unveiled next month. The cigar, a first for the Padrón family, is meant to appeal to those who tend to smoke milder cigars.
"Overall I really enjoyed this cigar. Some good strong spice during most of the smoke which I enjoyed and then towards the end when the spice calmed down more of the char flavor came out. The last 3rd was nice." -Wes (SosaCub4Life)

"Great overall cigar. The flavors were there from beginning to end but they were all varying at the different stages. My biggest complaint is that the ash would fall off for no reason making a bit of a mess. " -Alan (Eulogy)

The Rocky Mountain Cigar festival is always a great event with good people, and awesome vendors. It has been growing steadily since it's inception in 2011. Unfortunately I was deathly ill last year and wasn't able to attend and see the new venue. This year I was feeling great and ready to smoke, and it didn't disappoint. Joined by our panelist Jack, we conquered almost the entire festival.
