Crowned Heads Le Careme Review

The Crowned Heads Le Careme was a new release at the 2016 IPCPR. The information released at the event divulged that this cigar pays tribute to Marie Antoine Careme, a culinary pioneer in France during the 1800’s.

Debonaire Cigars is a company born from a split partnership. Once partners with Rocky Patel, Phil Zanghi began his own company known as Debonaire Cigars & Rum. A visit to their website will let you peruse “ultra premium” cigars and premium rums.

Matilde Quadrata Review

At just shy of an inch into the Matilde Quadrata, notes of raw raisins drizzled in brown sugar begin to shine. If it didn’t before, this cigar has my full attention now. If you enjoy medium-bodied cigars with lots of flavor that tend to go towards the sweet side of the wheel,

Villiger San’Doro Claro Review

Sporting a gorgeous Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, this cigar appears near perfect. The seams are difficult to see and the cap blends nicely with the light brown, caramel-colored wrapper. Scents from the wrapper are dry hay and sweet tobacco. From the foot I smell dry hay, wood scents and a little tingle of pepper.

Tatuaje Skinny Monsters: Tiff

The hay from the pre-light inspection comes on strong right away, joined by creamy sweetness on the draw with light black pepper on the finish. The pepper quickly makes its way up front, delivering small amounts of pepper throughout the draw and finish. The finish has been dry on several of the Skinny Monsters; it’s particularly dry on the Tiff.

Suriel Day and Night

First puff? A marriage of leather, cream, subtle hints of tangy earth, and an interesting citrus zing on the tip of the tongue. Very faint spice is present in the mouthfeel. Within moments, creamy leather with undertones of orange ride to the top of the profile. Silky smooth smoke, excellent burn line, and engaging flavors are my first few impressions of this stick.

With a big vein across the wrapper looking like a scar line, this cigar looks like Chucky, the monster it was named for. The cigar is quite a bit darker and more oily than Chucky though.

Tatuaje Skinny Monsters: Hyde

The Skinny Hyde comes out of the gate with toasted almonds, pepper, hay, breadiness, a hint of earth, and a bit of lemon citrus. The lemon comes across in the mouth and is accentuated by the retrohale. Cedar flavor joins in, and it gets creamier after about an inch.

Tatuaje Skinny Monsters: Jekyll

The Skinny Jekyll starts out with hay and cream notes. There’s a bit of spice on the end, but it’s nothing like the peppery start I’ve gotten from the other Skinny Monsters. It’s a much lighter start than I remember from the full-size Jekyll as well. There’s a sweet tobacco flavor, some light toasted almond, a lot of creaminess, and light cedar notes. The creamy notes are sweet, reminding me of cream soda.

Tatuaje Skinny Monsters: Jason

Most of the Skinny Monsters have started with pepper blasts but the Jason was much milder at the beginning. There was black pepper, but it wasn’t the big blast I was expecting. Cocoa started weak and built through the first third along with a little bit of hay. Chocolate and cocoa came to dominate this third.

Tatuaje Skinny Monsters: Mummy

I’m not sure if I’ve adequately described how rugged-looking the cigars of the Monster series are. I took this picture of the Mummy with better lighting and a clearer background to showcase how monster-like the cigars in this series look.

Tatuaje Skinny Monsters: Face

The Face got a makeover in the Skinny Monster set. Previously, it had a jagged tobacco band. Now it sports a paper band like the rest of the Skinny Monsters. And gone is the somewhat-closed foot, replaced with a clean-cut foot. Face sold out and cleaned up his act in the Skinny series.
