Blind Cigar Review: Southern Draw | Jacobs Ladder Brimstone Un Presidente
"This is another cigar that hits my profile perfectly. A deep chocolatey Maduro with savory flavors and a lot of spice. The nicotine definitely picks up in the final third so you do have to watch out for that a bit, but as long as you are prepared this is a stellar blend. My only complaint is the fact it actually smoked faster than I expected at 2 and a half hours, and would not hold an ash for anything. I do admit I have a pretty good idea what this cigar is since Maduro Presidente cigars are pretty rare, but I have never had a chance to smoke it before." -Lauren S. (Lauren S.) Read More

Accessory Review: Peter James | Cigar Aficionado Case - Koral
This case won't be replacing my Cigar Locker for the bulk of my herfs, but I will absolutely use it when the occasion is right like when I plan on only smoking one or two cigars, or an occasion when I won't be handing many out. The next time you find me in a luxurious steakhouse or upscale cigar bar, you will absolutely find the Peter James Cigar Aficionado Case next to me. Read More

Blind Cigar Review: La Aurora | 107 Nicaragua Robusto
"This cigar hit on all cylinders for me... construction, draw, flavors... I’m a definite fan of this flavor profile and would recommend this to anyone who can handle full flavors and strength...I love it! My only complaint would be the resting aroma... it was not nearly as pleasant as the flavors and was sharp and harsh. Fortunately, I got to smoke this excellent cigar and enjoy the flavors it presented. "-Jason H. (Jokey Smurf) Read More

Blind Cigar Review: Pantheon | Solaris Toro
"This cigar started out typical with mild to medium in strength with mostly walnuts in the flavor department. As the cigar progressed the strength went down to a mild, and cream with roasted peanuts and hints of bread really took over. The second third was the best part of this cigar, but I'm happy to say those flavors continued until the end. I nubbed this cigar with about an inch to go. Definitely a great cigar, and that I feel is box worthy." -Mickey T. (irratebass) Read More
