Re: Indomina toro (A.J. Fernandez)

Revisiting these after a few months in the humi with no cello.

Major improvement! The flavors have really opened up and gained more depth.

Still not a fantastic cigar by any stretch, but a...

Hirochi Robaina Blue corona gorda

Been wanting to check these out for a while now. I added a couple of singles to a recent order.

Dark maduro wrapper, shaggy foot. Good draw. The wrapper has a faint floral scent.

First few...

Re: What age did you start smoking cigars and how long have you been i

Started out in my teens smoking nasty machine made cigars. Then one day about 14 or 15 years ago (age 29 or 30), I was in a smoke shop buying a pack of cigarettes and saw a case with cigars in it. ...

I still love cigars

I joined this group (CS) around 2006 or 2007. In the years that have passed, my participation in the group has waned and increased; but I have never stopped smoking cigars. This group used to be A...

Re: Herrera Esteli Short Corona Gorda

I like this line a lot. I'd like to get a box and just let them sit in the cello for a few years and see what happens. Thanks for the review.

Re: Flores y Rodriguez Cabinet Seleccion Maduro Mini Review

Back when the Gran Habano lines were being pushed, I tried a few of them and thought they were not that great. But I have smoked a few of these (in a different size) and found them to be pretty damn...

Re: Factory Direct corojo torpedo (Tabacalera Tropical)

These are definitely a solid yard gar or handout. But at a retail price of around $60, you can get a better value on Cbid.

Factory Direct corojo torpedo (Tabacalera Tropical)

Many years ago, as a broke noob, I used to smoke the s#it out of these. My local B&M sold them for $3 or $4. This was back before Tabacalera Tropical became Casa Fernandez, and they mostly made...

Cigar Bundles of Miami Habano wrap lancero

Just a quick review... I added a 5 pack of these made in Miami lanceros to an order I placed early this year. I forgot about them until just a little while ago when I was searching my desktop humi...

Crux Ninfamaniac

Browsing the Famous auction site and these grabbed my attention. I normally don't like skinny cigars like this (7 X 33), but for some reason I bit.


Appearance: DARK wrapper. Almost too dark,...

Undercrown Shade toro

I tried the original Undercrown and wasn't a big fan, but seeing this CT wrap version, I had to try them.

Visually, the cigar is perfect. Flawless wrapper. Perfectly constructed cigar, heavy in...

Padron 3000 maduro

Guardian of the Farm Campeon

This cigar scored really highly on CA, and when I read that it is a collaboration between Casa Fernandez and Warped Cigars, I had to try one.

The cigar is a belicoso shape with a shaggy foot, but...

Laranja Reserva toro

Apparently, this Espinosa cigar made the Top 25 list on CA a few years ago, so I decided to try them.

Appearance is not nice at all. In fact, the wrapper is kinda ugly. If you were to hand me...

Re: The Wine Thread

My $12 Syrah got 3rd place out of 12. :r

I moved back down to SoCal a couple of months ago. I will miss the wine from up north. Guess I'll have to make a road trip once in a while.

Re: Casa Fernandez Miami Reserva robusto

This one appears to be an exclusive blend for Famous Smoke Shop. A Google search only shows them being sold by Famous. I like most of A.J.'s blends, so I pulled the trigger on a couple of fivers of...

Re: Great Factory Bundles, 2nds, cuban sandwich...

The La Vieja Habana lines from Drew Estate are pretty good - but I only like them in the corona size. Bigger ring gauge mixed filler cigars have a tendency to get hot and squishy. Smaller RG sizes...
