Ideally, I'd like to try 2 or 3 before making a final decision, but it depends on price.
Several months ago I bought two San Cristobal by Don Pepin. The plan was to age them five months, then my friend and I were going to smoke them on the first Saturday of college football season if both our...
La Rosa Especial Nikkoh
Size: 6.0 x 52
Tobacco: Mexican, Nicaraguan, Costa Rican, Honduran
La Rosa Especial cigars were introduced in the early 1990's as "The Strongest Cigar on Earth". They were popular at first, but as the Cigar Boom of the late 90's gave birth to hundreds of...
I bought a box on closeout from JRs last week. A box of 20 (6 x 52) for $29.99 I wasn't expecting much, but it was actually very good. Medium-to-full. A little spiciness in the flavor. Great burn.

The best sticks I have right now are in the $10 range: (1) Padron 6K maduro, and (1) San...
I don't know. I got to Little Havana at 3 pm on a Saturday afternoon, ate a leisurely lunch at a nearby cafe, then sauntered over to the Pepin factory. Only to discover, to my dismay, that the Pepin factory closes at 4 on Saturdays. They were locking up as I was coming out of the cafe, so I...
After you visit Pepin, make sure you look in the El Titan de Bronze factory. It's right across the street, katty-corner from Pepin's place. Say hello to Carlos and make sure you pick up a rew Redemption Sungrown Toros. May be the best kept secret in Little Havana.
