    Alec Bradley Tempus Corona

    Alec Bradley Tempus Corona The Tempus churchill just received a "94" rating in CA so I was very skeptical of this cigar before even obtaining one but that did put it on my radar as something to try. Frankly, I haven't thought too highly of the few AB cigars I've smoked. (Cigar Insider gave this...

    Cigar.com Corojo Robusto vs. DPG Blue Robusto

    Cigar.com Corojo Robusto vs. DPG Blue Robusto I had no intentions of doing a comparison type review of the Cigar.com Corojo robusto when I selected it. I was in the mood for something spicy so I did what I always do in that situation: I went to the DPG section in my Vinotemp and picked...

    Rocky Patel Decade Toro

    Rocky Patel Decade Toro Size: 6"x50rg MSRP: about $10 Construction: Firm cigar with a dark Ecuadorian wrapper and few small veins. Considerable weight for its size. I'm not a fan of double bands but the bands on this cigar were tasteful. The wrapped near the cap unraveled a bit upon cutting the...

    Overlooked and Underrated Cigars

    Today's JdN Joecigar deal got me thinking about great cigars that I usually completely overlook when choosing something to smoke. The Joya de Nicaragua Antano 1970 line is definitely one of those cigars for me. They're well-constructed, tasty, strong, and relatively cheap. Yet I rarely reach...

    JFC (Just for Catalog) vs. JFR (Just for Retail)

    I just received an email from Cigar.com announcing the "new" line of JFC (Just for Catalog) cigars. Their description sounds very similar to the JFR I had the other day. Anyone know anything about these? Are just just renamed JFRs...

    JFR (Just for Retail) Corojo Corona Gorda

    JFR (Just for Retail) Corona Gorda I walked into one of my local B&Ms today (Cigar & Tabac) and asked if they had anything new that I might like. The friendly and knowledgeable salesman pointed me in the direction of the JFRs. When I said that I had never had one and would love to try one, his...

    I thought it couldn't happen to me . . . another moldy Shark

    I was recently given a couple Sharks by my Secret Santa. With all the posts about mold, I've been checking them for mold weekly. One of them started sprouting white stuff this week :mad: It's not completely coated so I'm going to freeze it for a couple days and smoke it immediately after it...

    Partagas Spanish Rosado Santiago

    Partagas Spanish Rosado Santiago "Santa" was kind enough to include of couple of these in the huge bomb that he dropped on my house. I didn't have time for a full sized smoke yesterday so I decided to fire one up. The Partagas Spanish Rosado Santiago is a cute little 4.3"x36 ga. cigar...

    Perdomo ESV 1991 Imperio Natural

    Perdomo ESV 1991 Imperio Natural Even before getting to the cigar itself, this cigar looks impressive. The cello is flashy and covered with Perdomo's circle-P logo. The band is one of the most ornate I've seen. The folks at Perdomo sure want you to know that you are smoking an ESV 1991 cigar...

    Opus/Anejo Price Gouging at B&Ms

    I had a nice little talk with the guys at my B&M today that started when I asked if they even carried the more expensive A. Fuente products such as Opus, Anejo, and Hemmingway lines. They said that they did but they always sold out instantly because they never receive very many. They actually...

    CI Humi-Care HX10 Crystal Gel Rectangle Humidifier

    This thing here http://www.cigarsinternational.com/prodDisp.asp?item=M-HMC06&cat=10 If you receive one of these, my advice is to a) throw it away or b) break it open and fill it with beads. Why? I followed the instructions that accompanied it on how to hydrate it. They said to submerge it in...

    What is wrong with this cigar?

    I bought this cigar last week from my B&M, carried it around for an evening and put in my humidor the next morning. With the recent humidity drops, my humidor has been running a bit low (60-62%) but this cigar was near a free CI gel-type humidification unit. There were some small water droplets...

    An innocent little trade ends in carnage!

    Viewer discretion is advised. CaddoMoney and I agreed to do a small sampler trade deal. I sent him 5 humble sticks and he retaliates with this . . . Brother, that was totally uncalled for! I've never smoked any of the five cigars in the "quality pack" before. And your "Everyday Pack"...
