Stogie Press Cigar Reviews

We at Stogie Press believe in honest cigar reviews.

We don’t put numbers in our cigar reviews. We do cigar reviews like this so as to benefit the consumer and supplier alike. Every cigar deserves an honest cigar review. Feel free to comment on any of our honest cigar reviews or if you like, submit us one of your honest cigar reviews and we will add to the list. We are unbiased in our cigar reviews and hope you are too.

We have rolled out our new rating system in time for the 86th annual IPCPR and all reviews here forward will be subjected to the new system. You can read about it in the three articles we published.

    1. Stogie Press Rating System Part 1 – Construction

    2. Stogie Press Rating System Part 2 – Flavor, Aroma, Draw, Price to Experience

    3. Stogie Press Rating System Part 3 – The Numbers

Featured Cigar of the Week

Villiger La Meridiana Boxed Pressed Toro

Villiger La Meridiana Boxed Pressed Toro – Rated 93


The Villiger La Meridiana Boxed Pressed Toro was a stellar flavor bomb that had an excellent draw and burn qualities. I can see why this cigar was a hit in the European market as it never overpowered you and offered a plethora of flavors
