Partagas Black Label Bravo Cigar Review

Partagas Black Label Bravo Cigar Review

The History While Jaime Partagas founded the cigar brand that bears his name, most of the history of Partagas was written by Ram Cifuentes and his father before him. It was they who made Partagas the leading Cuban cigar before Fidel Castro overthrew the Cuban government in 1959. Almost 20 years after Ram Cifuentes was forced to flee Cuba, he was finally able to begin making his Partagas cigars again in 1978, this time in the Dominican Republic. And it ...

Padron Serie 1926 No. 6 Maduro Cigar Review

Padron Serie 1926 No. 6 Maduro Cigar Review

Some of the guys in the forum have been talking about this cigar. Even though $14.50 is not really in my range I have went crazy the past couple of days picking this up along with a couple Opus X. So I sit up here in Chicago (Michigan City to be exact) drooling over this cigar watching IFL (International Fight League ). It looks dark and smooth built like a champ. No flaws that I see at all and it’s ...

Oliva Serie O Robusto Cigar Review

Oliva Serie O Robusto Cigar Review

I picked up some Oliva Serie O smokes a while back since I have yet to try one. Boy am I glad I did, these are some good cigars. The Oliva site says this cigar should be stored between 70% and 78% humidity to preserve the natural oil during aging. I wish all the manufacturers had aging information on their sites. Here is some more information from the Oliva site: Serie O is a Nicaraguan Puro. Made in the original Cuban tradition of growing ...

Oliva Serie G Special

Oliva Serie G Special

I have been on Oliva kick lately going back and forth from the Serie O and G. I have been enjoying the smaller cigar also so I picked my favorite size of this line, the Special G. Weighing in at only 3.75 x 48 it makes the perfect size for a lunch break smoke. These come in boxes of 48 so you are sure to have plenty to go around. Information from www.olivacigar.com: Serie G is a medium body blend made with ...

Montesino Maduro Cigar Review

Montesino Maduro Cigar Review

I’m a big fan of the Montesino natural line so I’m excited to try the maduro version of it. It is made by Cigar Family, maker of the famous Fuente cigars. It is a nice dark maduro with a rough veiny wrapper and measures in at 5×50. Oh and sorry about the pictures, I will try to update them when I get my better camera back. The Cigar Family site has this to say about the Montesino line: Montesino cigars have been part ...

Macanudo Duke of York

Macanudo Duke of York

Macanudo is well known to be a very mild line that has its own following. Some people only smoke Macanudo and some people can not stand them because of the mildness. Luckily I love all types of cigars and have been known to smoke a Macanudo or two. My buddy was over Saturday night and after some Bud’s he wanted to try a cigar. Since he smokes cigarettes I knew he would inhale even if he didn’t try so I gave ...
