Haven't had any of those but have heard good reviews of the Tat 7th. I have a few new cigars added to my list that were showcased at the PCA.

I got a box of the Tuxtla Coronas and ROTT they were medium body and pretty much stayed there. They are a nice first cigar of the day but not really note worthy. I won’t be picking up anymore unless my second experience is better.

My two cents.

I recently took a flyer on Atlantic Cigar's AJ Fernandez Small Batch No. 1 Toro Maduro. Its a very nice cigar. It seems much more aged than the usual A.J. cigar. so, it doesn't have the characteristic A.J. kick. If i had to guess, its something that was laying around a while waiting for a buyer. Well worth it!

Good ol' Party Source just started carrying the Rojas cigars a couple weeks ago, and featured the brand in their Tuesday events tonight. I was familiar with them from the Chattanooga Tweetup Herf ten years ago, but until now no local shops had them.

The PS event wasn't well attended, probably because of that lack of familiarity. More for us to buy, and win in the raffle. I'm smoking a Street Taco right now elsewhere, in fact.

Another brand I've enjoyed lately, though I'm not sure how "new" they are to anyone but me, is Aladino.

Here's a little information regarding Aladino for you Tom. They are made by Julio R. Eroia (JRE).

The Aladino have been around maybe 10 years? Julio Eiroa is the same family as Christian Eiroa, formerly of Camacho then CLE.
