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

Revisiting this one after a few months rest. These have really opened up flavor wise. The dominant flavors and aromas are still similar to my initial review, but a nice nutty flavor has crept in on...

Padron Damaso No. 8

A mild cigar from Padron? Sure, I'll try them. Grabbed a 5 pack from the Famous auction site.

5.5 X 46 corona gorda

At a retail price of around $10, I expected a nicer looking wrapper. It's...

Indomina toro (A.J. Fernandez)

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...

Alex's Private Blend (Cigar Bundles of Miami)

I buy from this Miami cigar shop a few times a year and have yet to be disappointed. Their cigars are top notch as is their customer service.

One of the owners of the shop had this cigar made...

Plasencia Reserva Original pyramid

This is the re-designed (and re-blended?) release of the Reserva Organica, allegedly the first organic cigar. I was a big fan of both the lines (Organica and 2001 Edicion Limitada). So much so that...

I have really been liking this company over the past year or so. First time trying this particular line.

Omar Ortez Original maduro torpedo

I used to smoke the sh!t out of Omar Ortez Originals natural torpedoes. They came in these cool bigass boxes of 60 and were fantastic smokes. I would score those boxes of 60 on C-bid for like $150...

San Lotano Requiem Connecticut toro

The original San Lotano lines are some great smokes, so when I saw this tweaked new line I had to grab one and check it out.

Just a touch milder than the original San Lotano Connecticut. Same...

Famous Nic 3000 - still got it...kinda.

I bought a metric sh1t ton of these (4 bundles IIRC) about 10 years ago, and to my horror I discovered that I am down to just a handful left. So I grabbed a bundle of torps off the Famous auction...

Re: My Uzi Weighs a Ton +11

Apparently I had one of these left after all this time. It will be interesting to smoke this thing.

Looking back at my initial review. The coconut flavor I described is gone. The dominant...

Warped Futuro Seleccion 109

Never tried anything from this company, so I snagged a couple of singles on C-Bid. These are called a toro, but the head is tapered so I would consider it a belicoso. Nice looking wrapper. The...

Re: Famous Nicaragua Robusto

I remember those! I liked them quite a bit but people weren't really buying them, so they weren't out for very long.

Re: Casa Fernandez Aganorsa Leaf toro

Yep! Can't cut them with a cheap cutter. And removing the bands is a delicate surgery.

Heyyyyyyyyy folks.


So growing up, I always thought wine was that stuff in a big jug for $5.99. Wasn't a fan. But I moved to the middle of Wine Country, CA about 3 yrs ago, and after going...
