Quick Smoke: A.J. Fernandez Habano Enclave Robusto

Sat, 20 Jan 2018 08:00:04 +0000

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.” With a flawless Ecuadorian Habano wrapper and a partially covered foot, this cigar makes a great first impression. This entry also features something of an unusual combination for […]

Cigar Review: Illusione La Gran Classe Rex

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 08:00:42 +0000

In 2012, Dion Giolito introduced La Grand Classe as a small-batch exclusive for his Fumare store in Reno, Nevada. The project appeared short-lived, with only one follow up, La Grand Classe Rex, which appeared in 2013. Then, at last year’s IPCPR Trade Show, Giolito, who also owns the Illusione brand, announced La Grand Classe Rex […]



Cigar Review: La Aurora León Jimenes Prestige Churchill

Mon, 15 Jan 2018 08:00:47 +0000

“La Aurora was founded on October 3rd, 1903 by Eduardo León Jimenes, a hard worker who was son and grandson of tobacco growers [who]… decided to go a step further with the creation of a cigar brand,” reads the La Aurora website. “The founder was then 18 years old, inherited some ‘tareas’ of land and, […]



Quick Smoke: Muestra de Saka Nacatamale

Sun, 14 Jan 2018 08:00:21 +0000

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.” Shortly before Christmas, my colleague rated this 6-inch, 48-ring gauge parejo a five out of five stogies, which earned it a spot in our best of 2017 list. […]



Quick Smoke: La Gianna Natural Robusto

Sat, 13 Jan 2018 08:00:11 +0000

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.” United Cigar’s La Gianna brand sports Honduran binder and filler tobaccos. There are two different wrapper varieties: Maduro and Natural. The latter has a pale Connecticut Shade wrapper […]

Cigar Review: Cornelius & Anthony Señor Esugars Robusto

Wed, 10 Jan 2018 08:00:53 +0000

  I approached this cigar with trepidation. I’m a huge Cornelius & Anthony fan. I recently awarded the Aerial robusto five stogies, and I’ve rated others highly as well. I’m not, however, a fan of Mexican San Andrés tobacco, the leaf used as wrapper on the Señor Esugars line. But there have been a few […]



Commentary: Cigar Smoking Competitions Are Absurd

Mon, 08 Jan 2018 08:00:46 +0000

Last Wednesday, an article appeared in the Wall Street Journal about “competitive slow smokers,” or cigar enthusiasts who compete to keep a cigar lit as long as possible. Yes, that’s a real thing. At events from “Chicago to Croatia,” these devotees use tactics like “gentle puffs, moist palms, [and] strategic ashing” to prolong their cigar […]



Quick Smoke: Tatuaje Black Petite Lancero

Sun, 07 Jan 2018 08:00:29 +0000

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.” Tatuaje’s Black line, sometimes referred to as Pete Johnson’s personal blend, has come in many shapes and sizes since a 2007 debut limited release of Corona Gordas in […]
