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[…]

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[…]

RoMa Craft Neanderthal HN

RoMa Craft Neanderthal HN Figurado Cigar Review

Back  in 2014 Skip Martin and RoMa Craft Tobac teased the cigar market with a possible new addition to the RoMa Craft family. It wasn’t until 2015 when the company finally released the long anticipated entry of the Neanderthal HN. I would say good things are worth waiting for especially in the craft cigar market where[…]
