"The first third was great and I was hoping that it would continue but it fell off at the middle and went off the rails at the end in terms of flavor. The look and feel of the cigar make me think it's very well made and even with ashy flavor at the end it still had great smoke production and produced a nice creamy smoke. It's easier for me to forgive something that burns a little wonky or has a tight draw but the flavor has to be there. " -Alan (Eulogy)
"This was a nice easy smoke. If you are drinking I would not pair with something strong at first because it would most likely wash out and flavor from the cigar. Sweet and cedar I saltiness to be the backbone of this cigar. Mix that with some saltiness." -Jake P. (Jake P.)
"I highly enjoyed this cigar! If you’re not blowing smoke out of your nose you’ll probably have a more boring experience. While the French Roast coffee note on the draw is nice ALL the retrohale flavors of mineral, mint, and spice steal the show. Combine that experience with great construction and this cigar is a winner. " -Matt Cade (CadeTNCC)
Tabacalera Perdomo has announced a new cigar, the Perdomo Inmenso Seventy. It comes in two wrapper varieties, Sun Grown and Maduro. The new cigar will ship May 2021. It was originally released in the early 2000's but was ahead of it's time and was since discontinued. Now that cigar ring guages have crept up on average, the company felt it was time to bring it back.

This is a compilation of our favorite budget cigars, some we have reviewed, some we have not. We will try and get to reviewing all of these eventually and we will keep adding more bargains as we find them.
"I thought this was a pretty good cigar. It did not blow you away in any sort of flavor but was steady all the way until the end. Floral, nuts and bread pretty much ran this cigar for me. Would defiantly suggest this to someone." -Jake P. (Jake P.)
"This was a flavor bomb! Rich and bold from the time the fire touches it and grows fuller throughout the smoking experience. If this is what I think it is, this is exactly what it is blended to do. It was very slow burning for the size, which is quite amazing. I would say rush out and get as many as you can, especially if you are a fan of a slow burning flavor bomb, but if they are what I think they are that might be a little tough. Good luck and enjoy." -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)
"Anxiously awaiting the reveal on this one. The flavors were right up my alley, and performance was strong. I'd smoke this one again anytime." -Dave (mdwest)

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.
