Viaje Zombie Antidote

Viaje Zombie Antidote Collectors Edition Cigar Review – I Needed Help!

Let’s get one thing straight, I don’t believe in Zombies and I don’t watch or like Zombie movies or TV shows. Maybe I am in a small percentage of people but I am not worried about a Zombie Apocalypse. I figure if there was such an event we have plenty of Marvel Super Hero’s to[…]

Caldwell Blind Man’s Bluff Connecticut Cigar Review

The US Presidential election is past us now, and even though Robert Caldwell ran a hard-fought campaign with his #caldwell4prez social media press, he just couldn’t surpass the surge of the two major candidates. Of course that did not stop Robert from releasing another new blend for his Caldwell Cigars line. This time it is[…]

La Flor De Ynclan

Villiger La Flor De Ynclan Cigar Review – A story of friendship.

I have always said,  cigars are more than just tobacco leaf rolled and smoked. Cigars are a lifestyle, a way for people from all walks of life to bond over a common enjoyment. We like to say it’s a Fellowship of the Leaf. Cigars allow us to sit back and take the time to enjoy[…]

Providencia Cigars El Padre

Providencia Cigars El Padre Cigar Review – Can I Get an Amen

The other week, I introduced you to the Providencia Cigars El Santo (The Saint), which was a bold and enjoyable maduro. Today we shift the gears slightly and turn to its lighter brother, the Providencia Cigars El Padre (The Father). Of course in real life, a Father could be a Saint but not all Saints are Fathers. I[…]

MBombay Classic

MBombay Classic Churchill Cigar Review- A Classic is Always in Style!

It seems  like it has been forever, but MBombay Cigars have only been around for 3 years, but what a great 3 years Mel Shah has had. It all started back in 2014,  when this former IT Executive and cigar shop owner decided to lay it all on the line and introduce his first line[…]

El Santo

Providencia Cigars El Santo Cigar Review – A Must Try!

A little while ago I was contacted by Raymond Zinar one of the three owners of  the owners of Providencia Cigars. Raymond wanted to know if I would  be interested in reviewing his company’s cigars.

El Yayabo Renovation Habano

El Yayabo Renovation Habano Cigar Review – Experience Shows

If you are a  regular follower of cigar social media, you probably  have heard of El Yayabo Cigars by now. They hit the scene back in 2015 at the IPCPR in New Orleans, LA. Their booth was in the back of the show and lucky for me, I always venture the trail least followed. It was then[…]

Atabey Ritos

Atabey Ritos Cigar Review – Truly a Supreme Goddess

Kristoff GC Signature Series

Kristoff GC Signature Series Cigar Review

Released back  in 2011,  the Kristoff GC Signature Series cigar is one of those cigars that just keeps giving even after all  these years. It is certainly one of my “go-to” smokes if I catch it on the humidor shelf in a local shop. The problem  is, I tend to sit in the shop and[…]

Protocol Probable Cause Lancero

Protocol Probable Cause Lancero Cigar Review

Lanceros, you either like them or you don’t. As for me, I love a well made lancero. It is the one vitola where you get the maximum amount of wrapper flavor and if rolled properly, a prefect burn. So is the case with the Protocol Probable Cause Lancero, the latest line extension to the Cubariqueño Cigar Company[…]
