The Nat Sherman Host Series Are Fantastic For After Dinner Smokes

October 3rd, 2014

The Nat Sherman Host Series Cigars Receive Fantastic ReviewsIf you are looking for mellow smoke, that helps you relax while letting your cares float away, then you must try the Nat Sherman Host selection of cigars. They are a sweet, handcrafted Honduran stogie, which were a personal fave of Nat himself. Maybe smoking this smooth stick helped Mr. Sherman conceive new blends.

The cigar itself is one of restrained cultivation and beauty. The band is a lovely turquoise and light red that complement the tawny-colored Connecticut Shade wrapper. The light brown wrapper is slightly veined with an oily sheen. This hand-rolled stogie features a sugary, spicy Honduran binder and filler. Aficionados love the coffee, vanilla, and nutty flavors on the cold draw. Most talked about how well the cigar’s construction is with its firmness and great smoke production.

So how was the cigar? Well, reviewers say the first-third is all about the creamy vanilla flavor that melds with spice and nuttiness to produce an almost decadent dessert-like flavor. There are hints of earthy notes that give it its unique mellow qualities. During the second-third, the vanilla, spice, and nut flavors are still present, but they combine with notes of coffee that offer a near seductive fusion of sweetness. Aficionados made sure to mention how fantastic the Nat Sherman Host series are for after dinner smokes. The blend of flavors in the final third is like eating a nice big slice of a mouthwatering pie or cake. The graham cracker flavor combined with coffee, vanilla, and spice puts a nice finish to the cigar. Reviewers noted how the stogie burned at a good rate, with a slight resistance to the draw and a firm ash. It didn’t require any touching up, so a high rating for being a low-maintenance smoke.

Overall, it is a well-blended and smooth stogie. It is mild to medium-bodied that novices and aficionados like to smoke. It scores an impressive nine out ten by reviewers, but this isn’t surprising. Nat Sherman is about making quality cigars, and the Host series lives up to Nat’s principle of providing a timeless and memorable smoking experience.

The Quesada 40th Anniversary Cigar Has A Unique Shape

October 3rd, 2014

The Quesada 40th Anniversary Cigar ReviewThe Quesada 40th Anniversary is going to draw attention for its shape, first. Though it is available in half a dozen different vitolas, one of them is one of the strangest you’ve ever seen for a cigar. Shaped like a barbell or kayak paddle, it doesn’t even look like a cigar at first glance. It certainly tastes like one, though, and an excellent one at that. With the unusual flavors and unique look, it appears Quesada is celebrating its birthday in style.

This smoke is medium bodied and medium strength, with the San Andreas wrapper finishing it off. The blend itself consists of some Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos, and these produce a range of flavors. The first half of the stogie is sweeter, with earth, cocoa, cinnamon, citrus and pepper notes producing a sumptuous burst of bright flavors. The second half of the Quesada 40th Anniversary shifts dramatically, with salt, pepper, meaty and spice notes giving the blend a savory taste. The stark contrast makes the smoke even more memorable than it already is.

Fortunately, this doesn’t come at the cost of performance. Though the burn needs some slight attention from time to time, the draw is perfect and the feel great overall.

If you’re looking for a cigar that is sure to make people ask questions, this is the smoke you’ve been waiting for.

Smokers Can Add Individuality With Personalized Humidors

October 1st, 2014

Personalized Humidors For Cigars With Laser Engraved DesignPersonalized humidors add a touch of individuality to any cigar smoker’s set-up. Whether it is a gift or for personal enjoyment, this type of equipment is vital to protecting the flavor and condition of any number of cigars. Available in a range of sizes from a compact travel size to a full room layout, they give off a steady amount of moisture into the space. Ideally, the concentration should be in the 68-72% range in order to avoid tobacco beetles and ensure a desirable burn rate.

Exterior casings may be metal and plastic materials, but most commonly construction is of wood such as American Red Cedar, Honduran Mahogany, and Spanish Cedar. The latter is quite popular due to its ability to keep harmful beetles away and retain proper levels of dampness without warping.

From casual smokers to sophisticated connoisseurs, they are sure to enjoy receiving personalized humidors to store their prized collection. Serious Cigars utilizes a top notch laser engraver that allows for an endless amount of options. Sports team or company logos, monograms, family crests, or particular words of wisdom are just a few of the possibilities to consider displaying. They are an excellent gift idea for birthdays, graduations, wedding party, or even to pay tribute to a new man cave. With the recipient in mind, these unique boxes are sure to make any celebration one to remember.

The Alec Bradley Texas Lancero Cigar Is Perfect For All Smokers

October 1st, 2014

The Alec Bradley Texas Lancero Cigar Review and InformationThe Alec Bradley Texas Lancero is an imposing cigar but is surprisingly easy to handle by smokers of all experience levels. This cigar producer is one of the more respected boutique manufacturers out there, so all of its releases are held to a high standard. Fortunately, this blend lives up to the brand’s impressive portfolio and settles in as a solid addition to the line.

This cigar has a Nicaraguan wrap, an Indonesian binder and tobaccos from Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Honduras. It is only available in a 7 x 70 vitola and finished with a pigtail cap. The wrapper is dark brown and the cigar has good weight to it. Reviewers also appreciated how the smoke felt as it’s not too firm or too spongy.

The flavor profile of the Alec Bradley Texas Lancero emphasizes citrus, black pepper, leather, roasted nuts, tobacco and spice. Overall, the citrus and leather flavors are the strongest and are complemented by the punchy spice and pepper. While many Lanceros are on the heavier side, this blend aims right down the middle in body and strength. This makes it a perfect cigar for someone ready to test their palate against something a bit stronger, or for aficionados that need something to smoke during a long walk or lazy evening.

The Viaje Zombie Antidote Will Be A Memorable Cigar This Year

September 30th, 2014

The Viaje Zombie Antidote Cigar Review & InformationThe Viaje Zombie Antidote will probably be one of the most memorable cigars from this year, and not just because it is blended well. With this line, Andre Farkas has tried to tell a post-apocalyptic story, using blends like “WMD” to promote the “nightmare.” Farkas explains that this blend is the only cure for the emerging zombie threat, and the aesthetic has been ramped up to sell this angle. For example, these cigars are sold in medicine jars in sets of 24, making it one of the most unique packaging designs in the history of the industry.

This Nicaraguan puro is medium bodied and medium strength, and comes in a single size, a 6 1/4 x 44. It is medium brown in color and features a red cross on its label. The pre-light draw has some agreeable chocolate, coffee and leather notes on it.

According to reviews, the first third of the Viaje Zombie Antidote has some complexity to it, with pronounced coffee, earth and pepper flavors dominating the profile. It eventually transitions into a bit of chalkiness and delicious roast beef flavors as well. During the middle third, the profile maintains a steady combination of powdered chocolate, sweetness and pepper. The final third is less sweet and hits with some dark earth notes, along with black pepper and mineral flavors.

Review Of The Camacho And BG Meyer Standard Issue Cigars

September 18th, 2014

Camacho & BG Meyer Standard Issue Cigar Line ReviewA brand that loves its celebrity blends is Camacho and the BG Meyer Standard Issue is its latest offering in the company’s rebranding as “Unapologetically Bold.” Rob Weiss joins fellow Board of the Bold members, Mike Ditka and Matt Booth, who have released their own brands. Known for his work on Entourage and How to Make It in America, Weiss embodies Camacho’s belief that you should live intensely, passionately, and loud.

Camacho and BG Meyer have created a medium to full strength, five-vitola line of Nicaraguan Puros that excite the senses and delight the palate. Weiss has poured a lot of love, care, and devotion into his new cigar. He selected the tobacco blend and hand-built the cigar at the Agroindustrias Laepe S.A. Factory – aka Camacho – in Honduras. His approach to cigar making is the same as creating a character – he wants aficionados to feel emotions and spark memories when they smoke his cigars. Featuring a blend of fillers from Esteli, Jalapa, and Ometepe aged for eight years, this stogie is a culmination of Weiss’ efforts to create a cigar that tells a story while you smoke it.

These sticks are well-constructed with a beautiful woody brown Habano wrapper. It features a paper sleeve with the emboldening message to live life to the fullest. Aficionados stated that when you remove the cigars from the ash grey box, you get hints of sweet hay. From the foot, you get whispers of cinnamon and cedar. The first-third is all about the spicy cinnamon tinged with cocoa. As you get deeper into the first-third, a toasty bread flavor emerges. Some reviewers noted that if you retro-haled, you would pick up a crisp melon and tangy orange notes. The second-third is an entirely different experience with the first notes giving way to hickory barbeque, avocado, and citrus. There are hints of earthiness that add different dimensions to the flavor profile. The final third is back to a sweet cocoa, toasty cream, with the addition of rich coffee notes. Overall, aficionados say the cigars are well made, require little to no touch-ups, burn evenly and have nice firm ash.

The partnership of Camacho and BG Meyer has created a cigar that is a dichotomous fusion of sweet and zesty, bold and mild, that keeps aficionados coming back for more. The unique blend of flavors, the motivational paper sleeve, and the dedication to the craft will make this stogie one that enthusiasts will add into their regular rotation.

What Cigars Are In The Viaje Skull and Bones Line?

August 27th, 2014

What Does The Viaje Skull and Bones Cigar Line OffersThe Viaje Skull and Bones line has only been around since 2010, but it already has a staggering 22 releases in its portfolio. While most of these releases are just variations on a handful of blends, they still offer something for every aficionado. These sticks are bold, though, and their medium to full body and strength makes them better suited for experienced smokers. Those who can handle them will be able to enjoy their amazing range of flavors and bold look.

The primary sticks in the line include the Daisy Cutter, the WMD, the MOAB, the FOAB, the Little Boy and the Cloudmaker. Each member of the Viaje Skull and Bones is a Nicaraguan Puro wrapped with a Nicaraguan Sun Grown Criollo. Most are only available in a single vitola as well, and the company favors smaller formats for their smokes.

The Daisy Cutter gets its name from the bombs used in Vietnam to clear helicopter landing zones. It consists of tobacco, sweet wood and tobacco flavors, along with some dark chocolate and black pepper. It is available in a 4 x 54 vitola.

The WMD has been released three separate times, in 2011, 2012 and 2014. It produces a number of flavors that include black pepper, coffee, wood, herbs, earth and cedar. It can only be found in a 3 3/4 x 54 format.

The MOAB (Massive Ordnance Air Blast bomb or Mother of All Bombs) is a 4 1/2 x 56 stogie that evokes flavors of black pepper, espresso, spice, oak, leather and cinnamon.

The FOAB (Father of All Bombs) was the Russian’s response to America’s MOAB, and the country claims it is four times more powerful than the MOAB. While this may be debatable, the stogie version has earned a lot of favorable attention. This 4 1/2 x 56 stogie creates flavors of leather, earth, bitter espresso, cedar and various sweet notes.

The Little Boy received its name from one of the first atomic bombs and packs a significant punch as well. It creates flavors of sweet earth, pepper, espresso, spice and leather and comes in a 4 1/4 x 56 vitola.

The Cloudmaker is the newest addition to the Viaje Skull and Bones and is one of the largest at 5 x 60. It launches a number of flavors, including black pepper, wood, cedar, fruit and meat notes.

The Camacho Ditka 89 Cigar Is A Tribute To The Chicago Bears

August 19th, 2014

The Camacho Ditka 89 Cigar Is A Tribute To The Chicago BearsWant a bold, full-bodied stogie that gives a kick to the palate? Smoke a Camacho Ditka 89. Known for its “Bold Standard” when it comes to its lines, the 89 is a fitting tribute to the Iron Mike’s prowess on the field and tenacity of his coaching. As only one of two people who has won a championship as a player, assistant coach, and head coach, Mike Ditka is an NFL legend. This blend celebrates his jersey number when he was a Tight End with the Chicago Bears. Camacho released the line to coincide with the retirement of Iron Mike’s jersey number.
This line is a limited edition and limited production with only 40,000 cigars being produced. It only comes in the Toro (6 x 50) size—a hefty stogie that is stout and solid. The Camacho Ditka 89 has a cocoa colored San Andres Maduro wrapper that has little veining and nicely hidden seams. It features a zesty blend of Dominican and Honduran fillers lovingly embraced by a Nicaraguan binder. The cigars are individually wrapped enhancing the flavors and keeping them fresh.
Reviewers stated the cigar is surprisingly complex in its flavor profile with hints of chocolate, earth, and pepper during the pre-light draw. The first-third is an overwhelmingly peppery earthiness that tempers slightly with hints of creamy chocolate. The second-third is dominated by earthy flavors as the pepper note transitions to a more background note. Some reviewers commented on tasting hints of chocolate, tobacco, and cream during the second-third. The last third is mostly strong peppery earthiness with no dilution by the creamy chocolate. It starts out medium strength and ends with a full-strength-kung-fu kick to the senses. Reviewers remarked on the stogie’s low maintenance with its excellent burn line, firm ash, and balanced draw.
This is a stogie for experienced smokers, not for beginners. The line is another excellent addition to the company’s unapologetic and audacious brand. A potent cigar, the Camacho Ditka 89 fulfills the promise of Camacho’s “Bold Standard” approach to cigar making.

Information About Arturo Fuente Cigars

July 24th, 2014

About Arturo Fuente Cigars & Their HistoryOne of the oldest and most beloved brands around, Arturo Fuente cigars has been family owned since 1912. There were many times, though, when it seemed like the company would disappear entirely, as the family hit staggering amounts of misfortune during its attempts to grow. A fire in 1924 burned the company’s only factory to the ground, and along with the Great Depression, forced the family patriarch, Arturo Fuente, to put tobacco aside for 22 years. Starting from scratch, he managed to create something to pass on to his son Carlos, who runs the company, along with his own son, today.

Arturo Fuente Cigars hit its stride during the Cuban embargo in 1962, as smokers had to look to other brands for their hobby. The company was able to take advantage of this to earn a new following. However, a fire wiped out another of the company’s factories in 1979, slowing it down again. This time, though, the brand was able to make a quick recovery and launch its first nationally recognized stogie, the Hemingway, in the mid-1980s.

Today, Arturo Fuente Cigars is most known for its flagship Opus X blend, a masterful stick that has placed on many publications’ top stogie lists. Released in 1995, it is a Dominican Puro wrapped in a Rosado leaf cultivated from the brand’s farms. One of the company’s hallmarks is producing its sticks in a huge number of vitolas, and the Opus X is no different. The Opus X is available in 13 sizes, from 4 5/8 x 49 to 9 1/4 x 47.

Currently, the company produces a handful of blends that aficionados have become comfortable and familiar with. These include the Gran Reserva, the Magnum, the Casa Cuba, the Chateau, the Don Carlos and the Destino al Siglo. For the most part, the company caters to experienced enthusiasts, with blends that are complex and robust.

With its ability to overcome hardship and a strong sense of family, this company embodies everything that people love about tobacco.
