Quick Cigar Review: Davidoff | Winston Churchill The Late Hour Churchill

This cigar performed like a champ. No touch ups required during the entire experience and I got tons of flavor. I have smoked this cigar in other sizes and hands down the Churchill is my favorite. I do find the Toro to have a bit more pepper but overall I can smoke these over and over.   Recommend this cigar to anyone.

Quick Cigar Review: Oscar Valladares | Altar Q Sumatra

This was a really nice cigar, and I’m surprised by how well it preformed given that it was on the IPCPR show floor last week, and already in stores. Yes, I purchased this one. The flavors were mostly honey with a nuttiness and a bit of coffee and some spice. As I mentioned before the burn was top notch, and not one touch up was needed. I really enjoyed this cigar, and I think it would make a nice 1st stick of the day, but bear in mind this is a toro, so there is some time commitment, as this cigar last me right around 95 mins.

Quick Cigar Review: Mbombay | Classic Torpedo

This is a very good entry cigar into the MBombay portfolio. There is a lot of flavor but not a lot of spice making it a good morning cigar. There was enough transition with the addition of some pepper to keep it interesting. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that enjoys milder cigars or an intro into the MBombay brand.

Quick Cigar Review: RoMa Craft | Aquitaine EMH Saber Tooth

The saber Tooth is an extremely limited release of the Aquitaine EMH. Adding flair and flavor to the existing Aquitaine blend, is a thin barber-pole stripe of Ecuadorian Connecticut to the Habano Ligero wrapper. The Saber Tooth was made in a very small production run, with only 200 boxes and 50 bundles, each 24-count. With such a limited production and highly anticipated cigar, I count myself very fortunate that I was able to buy a box. The Aquitaine EMH Saber Tooth measures 5 x 56 and carries an MSRP of $10/cigar. As with all other RoMa Craft cigars, these cigars were rolled at Nica Sueño in Esteli, Nicaragua.

Quick Cigar Review: Dunbarton T&T | Muestra de Saka Unicorn

While the Diademas size was amazing I always find them a struggle with construction, burn, etc. This cigar from a construction point of view was on point. The burn was great, and the cigar smoked perfectly. Would I spend $100 on this cigar if it was regular production? Of course not. Definitely a treat to smoke and I was happy to get the chance. I give this a score of 93.

Quick Cigar Review: Diesel | Whiskey Row Robusto

This cigar was exactly what a project like this should be: not so prominent in the barrel-aged department that it takes over the blend, but enough that you know it was there. It reminded me of the Diesel Unlimited blend both profile-wise and on paper, but just with a little something extra. I’m not sure this is my favorite Diesel release, but it is up there with the Rage and Delirium. Definitely pick some of these up if you are a fan of Diesel, barrel aged cigars, or just want to try something new in general.

Quick Cigar Review: Warfighter | Garrison 7.62 mm Rosado Toro

Warfighter Tobacco Company have only been around for the past couple of years. I applaud the men behind the brand. The are group of veterans who passed the time during their deployment smoking cigars, and decided to start their own company, from Nebraska no less……this is no small feat, but they did it through blood seat & tears. Congratulations gentlemen.

Quick Cigar Review: Montecristo | Epic Craft Cured Toro

This was a really good cigar, probably my favorite Altadis release in recent history. These were just good traditional flavors that were very balanced at every turn. I think these are ready to smoke right now, and have some short-term aging potential to really bring out the bready flavors. The construction was spot on with the draw and smoke production, and never had to light again. I’m glad I have a couple more of these and plan on smoking another very soon.

Quick Cigar Review: Villiger | La Flor De Ynclan Robusto Score 88%

Quick Cigar Review: Villiger | La Flor De Ynclan Robusto

“This was a good cigar, but I had higher expectations. The flavors were pleasing, but I felt for most of it it could have used some sweetness. If the whole cigar had tasted like the final third, minus the bitter nub, it would have scored higher for sure. I definitely want to try the other vitolas and give them more rest. Construction was great and I could see this turning into a very good smoke.” – Emmett
