Cigar Reviews: Providencia El Padre

Providencia El Padre – Opening Thoughts I’ve been eyeing the smooth wrapper of the Providencia El Padre since the day it arrived in the mail.  Small veins and discreet seams lend a quality feel to the cigar and the weight of this Robusto Gordo feels...

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.

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.
