Blind Cigar Review: Nestor Miranda | Special Selection Gran Toro

“This cigar was fun to smoke. Though it may not be my favorite size, I prefer a 42-48RG, I never once felt uncomfortable smoking it. It was ever changing and kept my interest throughout. This would make a great cigar that could be enjoyed as you were day drinking. Would pair well with any type of spirit and most wines due to it flavor profile. It is a little bit of a time commitment due to it’s size but well worth it. I will have to grab a few for my next beer fest or social gathering where I know I will have the time to enjoy it. ” -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)

“I really enjoyed this cigar. There was quite a bit of flavors going on with milk chocolate, wood, coffee, cream, spice and some marshmallow at the very end. The cigar stayed medium until the very final third where the spice kicked it up a notch. ” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

“Even though this cigar was a mild/medium taste, the woody flavors had a nice balance throughout. There were flavors of oak and cherry wood with a nice campfire aroma coming from the smoke. The after-taste was not over powering and left a nice taste behind. Even though a bitter flavor showed, it did not come until almost at the end. Overall I am very pleased and would love to enjoy this one again.” -Eric (smalls29)

Editorial: Cigar Events on a Smaller Scale

In the case of shop events, it can be challenging for a small cigar shop.  The difficulty comes in a few different forms.  On one hand, a smaller cigar shop simply doesn’t have as much space for customers.  Also, a brand owner would typically be less inclined to spend the time money and effort to hold an event at a small cigar shop.  But brands who have a broad following and dedicated group of talented sales reps can take chances on small shop events, and sometimes turn them into a success.  In late July of 2018, I spent the evening at my local shop and had a wonderful time at a small scale cigar event.

Editorial: Puro Sabor 2018 | Factory Tours

Imagine a car enthusiast having an opportunity to tour the Ferrari factory in Maranello, or someone who is a collector of fine watches going to visit Patek Philippe in Geneva.  The chance to actually see your favorite products being constructed by hand can be a real treat for the senses, and it can also give a heightened respect for the work that goes into creating these items that we love so much.  For premium cigar lovers the products that we consume are some of the most artfully and painstakingly crafted products in the world. Still, so many cigar lovers still don’t have the first-hand experience of seeing what goes into growing fine tobacco and crafting great cigars.  During Puro Sabor 2018 I was able to visit a number of cigar factories, large and small.  In this second article of the series about the festival I will take you through these factories in the same order that I visited them.
