When Davidoff purchased the Camacho brand a few years ago, they promised us a continuation of the bold and beautiful characteristics that made the cigars such a fan favorite. They continue to deliver on that promise with their latest offering. If you could pick two tobaccos that Camacho is known for, they would be the Corojo leaf which they have perfected and maduro which they made more popular than ever with the Triple Maduro line. In their newest outing, they are combining both of these tobaccos in one, outstanding blend.

 The Camacho Corojo Maduro is a hand crafted gem, rolled in at Davidoffs Honduran factory. They use aged Corojo tobacco for the filler, binder, and wrapper, giving is subtle earthy zesty and dashes of pepper and Cinnamon throughout By creating a Corojo Maduro wrapper, it adds in a wonderful touch of dark chocolate, coffee and leather, making this a powerful, yet very well rounded cigar.

 If you are looking for the ultimate Camacho cigar, a cigar that brings together the best aspects of the brand in one, outstanding smoke, well my friends you have found it. Pick up your Camacho Corojo Maduro Cigars right now at Serious Cigars.



 Bill Ives and Juan Cancel are two law enforcement officers who love law, order, and a good cigar. Being true aficionados for many years, they decided it was time to combine all their loves into one amazing project. They teamed up with Nicaraguan bad boy Erik Espinosa to create one of the most popular boutique cigars in recent memory, Protocol Cigars.

 The name and theme of each line of Protocol Cigars relates not only to their respective blends, but also to different law enforcement terminology. The Blue, which obviously represents police officers uniforms, in the most popular amongst the brand and uses powerful Nicaraguan tobaccos along with a zesty Habano wrapper. The Official Misconduct, also known as the Silver, uses a similar yet slightly tweaked blend that becomes incredibly complex after the first few puffs. The Probable Cause, a favorite amongst the Serious Cigars team, uses a lush and rich Habano Oscuro wrapper. The Themis Gold is a more mellow and smooth offering, utilizing a flawless Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper.

 Over the past two years, Protocol Cigars have become huge fan favorites, with several high ratings and being named to quite a few top 10 lists. Due to their limited production, it has been quite difficult to procure a large enough amount for our website…until now that is. You can purchase the entire Protocol Cigars line right here at Serious Cigars



Nick Melillo has quite an unusual tale for being one of the predominant blenders in the cigar industry. He is a home grown Connecticut man who went from retail work to being the top blender with Drew Estate, creating some of the worlds most well-known cigars including the Liga Privada. Now out on his own, Nicks Foundation cigars keeps producing highly rated, top of the line products. His original release, El Gueguense, received an incredibly high rating and was placed on the top 25 cigars year. Last year, we saw the highly anticipated release of the sequel, the Wise Man Maduro.

 This is one of my favorite cigars Nick has ever crafted, that includes his work with Drew Estate. It is a box pressed gem, using aged Nicaraguan filler and binder tobaccos, including a Corojo binder. Its finishing touch is a slightly toothy Mexican San Andres wrapper that is absolutely flawless. Each puff delivers solid notes of cocoa, sweet spice, coffee and leather.

 The burn on one of these bad boys is tight and strong, with no touchups required and a solid white ash. While im a fan of every size, I find the Corona Gorda to smoke particularly good. Like many of the Foundation cigars, they are made in limited quantities, so you should definitely pick them up while you can!



 The 2017 IPCPR tradeshow was abuzz with the news that Matt Booth had returned to the cigar industry. After his year of self imposed exile after parting with Davidoff, Boofy returned to bring his infamous Room 101 brand back to his loyal fans. He decided to partner up with one of this dear friends, and one of the kings of the boutique cigar market, the great Robert Caldwell. This two wacky scientists came together to create on of the best and most talked about cigars of the year, the Hit & Run. The dynamic duo decided to follow up this success with a sequel, that to many might pull a Terminator move and surpass the original.

   Even the name of this cigar speaks to the wacky personalities of its creators. Instead of calling it the Hit & Run 2 or Part 2, they went with the spoof movie Hot Shots style, Hit & Run Part Deux. This complex smoke is hand crafted at the William Ventura factory, which has become Caldwells home away from home. It features a secret Habano wrapper, an unknown binder and a mix of long fillers from Nicaragua, the Dominican and the US.

 This cigar starts off with some great earthy notes and some spice. It opens up after the first third to include some tremendous hints of pepper, sweet spice, and a distinct nutty aroma as well. I was a huge fan of the first Hit & Run, but I think this one takes it. It also may be one of the most complex and consistent cigars that Room 101 has released.   

Pick up your box of the Caldwell & Room 101 Hit & Run Part Deux at Serious Cigars.



 Humidor maintenance seems like a huge pain but it is in fact quite simple. By taking some east steps you can ensure that your cigars stay fresh for years. Cigars are a hand made product that are crafted from elements from nature. They need to be maintained in a certain environment in order to thrive, so making sure your humidor is seasoned properly is of the utmost importance

 The two most important aspects to maintain when aging your cigars are temperature and of course humidity. You must keep the humidity between 68-72% with 70% being your perfect. When using your standard, cedar lined humidor, there are preparations you should take before filling it with your cigars. This process is called seasoning. Seasoning a cigar humidor is incredibly important to maintaining your cigars.

 First, open up your cigar humidor. Take four shot glasses and fill them with distilled water. It is important you use distilled water because it is pure H20, with all of the minerals being evaporated out. If you use tap water, there is a chance of ruing your cigar wrapper. After filling the glasses, take them and place one into each corner of the humidor then close it. Leave it closed for 8-10 hours.

 After this time frame, open up the humidor and see how much water the shot glasses have lost and refill accordingly. The water is going down in the glasses because it is being absorbed by the cedar wood on the inside. Repeat this process until, after an 8 hour period, the shot glasses remain filled. This means the wood has absorbed all it can and is ready to be filled with cigars.

 Make sure your humidor is filled at minimum 50% with cigars, with 75% filled is preferred. After setting up your humidifier and hydrometer, your humidor is ready. I prefer to season my humidor about twice a year, so make sure you check it every few months.



Willy Herrera had quite the reputation even before be came to Drew Estate. Being the master blender for the top manufacturer in the US is no small feat, and everyone knows the tremendous cigars that were coming out of El Titan de Bronze. When he signed on with Drew Estate, fans rejoiced. Take the natural talent of such a prolific blender and giving him the almost endless resources of one of the largest companies in the industry, we knew magic was on the horizon. His first project, the Herrera Esteli, was a tremendous success and was on Top 10 lists everywhere. The sequel project is always the most difficult, however Willy and his team at Drew cam threw with flying colors.

The Norteño takes its name from the Spanish word for Northerner. This is typically what people in Nicaragua call the citizens of Estelí, as it is in the north of the Country. It is an exquisite full bodied smoke that combines the extensive tobacco resources of Drew Estate with the clever blending practices of Willy Herrera. It uses aged Nicaraguan tobaccos for its long filler and a stunning San Andres maduro wrapper, giving it a combination of rich sweet notes and spice.

The Norteño has received critical acclaim, and was named the #7 cigar of the year in 2016 with a 94 rating. It is an amazing example of a Nicaraguan cigar and laid the groundwork for all future Will Herrera blends. Pick up your box of the Norteño today at Serious Cigars.
