    Great smoke tonight.

    Some may be suprised the praise that I give this smoke, but I personally enjoyed it tremendously. I am Pepin whore and ,thanks to a few BOTL's whom a bombing is due, have had the pleasure of gaining the knowledge of the "island" cigars as of lately. I had my first Punch Rare Corojo NC...

    Don Pepin Support Thread

    I hope this thread holds up for BOTL's, but I thought it would be a somewhat useful thread. Mods if this belongs in retailer thread please move. This thread is for anyone to post where Pepin products can be had for cheaper at any given time. Some retailers are pricier than others. Any...

    Newhavana Cigars

    I know everyone is familiar w/ this retailer, but has anyone tried their house brand yet. I was curious if these are worthy. I obviously get Tats and Pepins from them, but didn't know of any reviews on the house blend.

    El Centurion

    Forgive my rookie review skills, but I will try and get my opinion across.....w/ no pics. Sorry pervs, not a photoshop expert either. Picked up a guerrero for 14.99 (I know, I know). First thing I noticed was the difference in weight and the looseness of the filler, compared to other pepin...

    Legends series- Pepin

    I have read the Top 25 reviews, but really am looking for more info on whether these are a good goto smoke. I am looking for a Nic corojo go to smoke, that has similiar qualities to the Pepin blends. I understand the complexity or quality might not be the same, but looking for similiar flavor...

    Jericho spanish rosado?

    Does anyone know where to find this smoke? I got a sampler of this last year and it was quite a tasty smoke. I haven't seen them since. I know there are better smokes and so many more to want, but I was impressed with these and would like to try more now to see if my opinion is the same on...

    Padilla Habano

    I have read what reviews there are on Top25, but I am still unsure about jumping the gun on these. Does anyone have any opinions on this line, and are they worth buying a box? Are there better smokes in this price range, if you are a Pepin whore? :ss

    Start up B&M

    I couldn't find the previous post with info on this. This is a long term goal of mine. I am doing a lot of research to make sure I am not trying to live a difficult dream. I worked in the industry for about 5 years, and know some store owners in the business from my past work experience...

    Anejo- Cameroon vs. maduro

    I had questions about the difference in these two wrappers and also which is preffered more. I have smoked various maduros, but haven't seen the cammies available. Any opinions or links to comparisons would be much appreciated. I won't vote on the poll as I haven't smoke the cammie. Edit...

    Don Pepin Garcia Blue Label Robusto

    Smoked one of these for the first time last weekend. Never had Pepin or Padilla, but after reading about them, had to pick up one at the B&M. First off let me say that I am a bit of a Fuente snob when it comes to quality, value and craftsmanship. I was in awe at the beauty of the...

    Davidoff Millenium Pyramids Torpedo

    All right so I just got my Arnold's cigars a week ago, but it was Easter Sunday and I was going to have a good occasion smoke. I had never had a Davidoff and was curious to what all the hype was about these. Prelight- It was a well made cigar. Reminded me of the King B, due to the wrapper...

    Flor De Ybor City?

    I am pondering ordering a bundle of these. Very pleased with the TS's, but don't know much about these. I looked on top25 but no luck. Are these good smokes? Compared to TS? I will probably get the sampler, but can sometimes judge by a flavor profile description. Once again any feedback...

    I have smoked both types of wrapper on this line, but so infrequently that I really don't know the difference. I was wondering on opinions of which is more preferred. It has been a while since I smoked a Cam wrapped Hemi, but recently smoked a WOA maddie. Any feedback would be aqppreciated...
