I bought few of these in Miami, but haven't smoked one yet. Anybody have any feedback?

I really enjoy them. I've smoked a few different ones, but no place around here has them anymore. They do make some solid smokes. :tu

The Maduros are excellent, the sungrown are very good.

Been a few years, but I enjoyed the SG's, also.
IIRC, pretty good cigar - full flavor, but not particularly 'strong. Good value, too.

I've only had one of the classics(with the red band) and really enjoyed it. I'd have more if I could just find the damn things

It's been a while, but the ones I've had in the past were good.
I think I may have to hunt more....

The maduros are absolutely amazing--a surprising amount of complexity!

Good pics Brad. I have a lot of fun hanging out there a few years back. Willie is a good guy and I am looking forward to what he will produce with DE.

WILLY HERRERA and EL TITAN DE BRONZE:

While living in Nicaragua most of the year, I try to spend as much time in Miami as possible (this is where my wife and dogs reside). And one of the best things is that we live only 30 seconds from the street called "Calle Ocho," as well as what they call "Little Havana". So, since 1995 I have always enjoyed visiting all of the boutique fabricitas that make small production cigars, and what I call Local Blends. Some of them have been exceptional and some have been fair, but one thing that I had always noticed and admired was that they ALL have been extremely proud of their craft, and typically, extremely proud of their Cuban heritage.

Back in the Mid Ninetees I used to purchase cigars from Ernesto Perez Carillo at La Gloria, Carribean Cigar, which was Kevin Doyle at the time (brands like Calle Ocho, Havana Classico, and the original Santiago Cubana. Of course there were so many others as well, Havana Sunrise, Nick's Cigar Company, and Moore & Bode to name a few. Some of them prospered and others simply faded away due to the end of the cigar boom, mismanagement of money, lack of tobacco, etc.

I had moved to Nicaragua in 1998, actually living in the factory, (or on Nick Sr.'s couch for six months) and really didn't return home much for the first 5 years. Coming back for only a few weeks per year I lost touch with Calle Ocho until 2004 ... until I met Pepin Garcia in Nicaragua.

TO BE CONTINUED FOR PART 2 TONIGHT AFTER THE DINNER. SORRY FOR WRITING SO MUCH ON THIS SUBJECT .... I CAN NAKE YOUR EARS BLEED SOMETIMES....LOL

BEST,
JD

They have wonderful cigars and take pride in each cigar. I love the sungrowns and maduros. Each time I head to miami I make sure I stop and visit El Titan De Bronze if you have not visited there location I highly recommend checking them out.

I had a TDB Gold (red label) last night and it was pretty good. Next up is the TR Sun Grown.

$90 a bundle and they ship.

I can't remember having any of their own branded lines but I have enjoyed cigars they have made for others such as the Liga Miami for El Primer Mundo. Seems to me I have tried quite a few other private lables that they made and liked those as well.

My story isn't about the cigars itself but about Sandy, the owner. She's wonderful. Back in may 2009 I walked in their factory/shop with Aldrin, Kevin and Simon. We were just tourists but we spend like 2 hours talking to Sandy who gave us a tour, let us smell tobacco etc etc.

18 months later and 90lbs lighter I walk into El Titan de Bronze, Sandy sees me says "wow, you lost a lot of weight". She remembered me and recognized me after 18 months and that much weightloss. Amazing. And a week ago, another year later, I walk in and first thing she says "you lost more weight, good". Sandy is awesome.
