Hatuey Taco Maduro Cigar Review

Hatuey Taco Maduro Cigar Review

This is a special smoke for me because it represents the birth of our new son Peyton. Like Peyton this is a small cigar.  When I was younger I could never imagine  being married especially with kids but I was blessed with a great wife and two kids I would do anything for. Four and a half years ago when my first son Parker was born I picked up a box of AF to celebrate and still have two today ...

Gurkha G3 Cigar Review

Gurkha G3 Cigar Review

The Gurkha G3 is a dark sexy looking cigar. G3 stands for triple ligero from what I read. They are made in the Torano factory in Honduras and only come in a toro size. They are a limited release in the states so they may be hard to find. Pre-light: The cigar looks like it was made very well with some color variations. It has one decent size vain running about two inches toward the foot of it. I has a large cap so it ...

Gurkha Shaggy Cigar Review

Gurkha Shaggy Cigar Review

I picked this cigar up at a nice shop in Michigan City Indiana about an hour east of Chicago. It is a beautiful oily toro that weighs in at 6×50 with Nicaraguan/Dominican filler and a Dominican wrapper and binder. I gets its the name “Shaggy” from the uncommon unwrapped foot it has. It is a smooth wrapper with some small bumps and veins. The wrapper has a deep dark leather look to it. The flavor was good with notes of coffee and a little ...

Don Tomas Corojo 554 Cigar Review

Today I’m in Chicago stuffing myself on calamari and pizza at Giordano’s Pizza. After my meeting I had to get back to my room to relax and settled on this stick after deciding that I didn’t want to take on a full body cigar. Now as long as the weather holds out until morning so I can get out of here I will be set for the week. I picked these up well over a year ago from JR. Many of ...

Don Pepin Blue Label Robusto Cigar Review

After getting done a little early with work I came back to the hotel and decided to have a Don Pepin Blue.

These are a spicy full-bodied cigar that can knock you on your ass if your not ready for it. This cigar is not for the new smoker. Don Pepin is one of the ...
