Felix Assouline L.R. Something Special

The embossed band on the cigar was relatively simple but attractive. The wrapper appeared reddish brown and was smooth. Seams were modestly neat and the construction outwardly evidenced a hint of perfection.

Talamanca Machista Review

Visually, this is a beautiful cigar. Light brown in color, the wrapper was free of large veins with virtually invisible seams. Scents of cedar and hay emanated from the wrapper while the foot gave off notes of raisin, spice and cedar. After a perfect punch, draw was easy and tasted of vanilla, hay and mild cedar.

Mombacho Tierra Volcan Nicaragua Corto Review

My first impressions are of combination rough leather and fake handbag leather with a pinch of cocoa powder. Spice, absent from the first draw, crashes the party several moments later. Copious amounts of black pepper clear out my sinuses in a matter of minutes. Let’s do this thang.

Sultans of Smoke Legacy Robusto

I’ve been listening to the Sultans of Smoke podcast for the last month or so, and during that time they came out with some of their own cigars. They seem like good guys, so I wanted to try their smokes. Tonight’s was the Legacy Robusto.

Campesino Robusto Definitivo Review

Just a couple weeks ago, I had the opportunity to speak with Luis and Edgar of Tabaqueria 1844 and Campesino. These gentlemen are extremely passionate about cigars and represent a growing number of excellent cigars coming from the Dominican Republic. Campesino means Farmer, and was chosen to pay homage to the people of the Dominican Republic that play a huge role in every level of the tobacco process.

Felix Assouline Ringo Bullet Review

Our CigarNoise crew had the opportunity to video chat with D’artagnan of Felix Assouline a few weeks ago. What I took away from it was lots of knowledge as well as an appreciation for what they do. Most of their cigars are box pressed because Felix prefers a box pressed vitola. Genius. Most of their current stock was rolled almost five years ago. Awesome. And lastly, the boxes on these cigars come are specifically designed to maintain a seal and be used as humidors. Excellent.

Room 101 Daruma Roxxo Review

And wow. Now I’m pulling Mexican Hot Chocolate out of this cigar. Lunch is ready, and the Domestic Engineer has reminded me twice now to come inside, but I can’t leave. This is just too good. This may be my first ever 10/10 for Value, even with burn issues and a couple relights.
