Rafael Nodal has been in the news quite a bit these days. After becoming a consultant to cigar juggernaut Altadis USA, he was recently named their Head of Product Capability. In short, he will oversee all tobacco activities for Tabacalera USA. Any new cigar, including the brand-new Trinidad Santiago, will been overseen by Rafael. Now while this is great news for some, many have asked about the future of the Aging Room brand. It is safe to say Aging Room will continue to thrive, with the brand new Solera showcasing Rafael’s continued dedication to the brand.

 The name Solera comes from the age-old technique of aging certain types of wine, brandy and beer. Rafael applied this technique to his tobacco and the result was a complex blend with more refinement and consistency. With its aged Dominican binder and filler, the Solera is available in 4 different wrapper varieties. There is the spicy sun grown, the bold Corojo, the rich and sweet maduro, and finally the smooth and creamy Connecticut shade.

 With is start of the art techniques and mast innovation, Rafael Nodal will be an amazing asset for Altadis USA. Yet, it is his work with Aging Room that has made him a household name and we look forward to his continued work with these amazing cigars. The Solera line is available right now at Serious Cigars.

This was a big year for Romeo, with two new brands coming to market. Both of these cigars are collaborations with the finest manufacturers in Nicaragua. First we had the Romeo 1875 Nicaragua, a stunning smoke hand crafted by the legendary Plasencia family. Then we have a bold and beautiful smoke from the minds of Rafael Nodal and AJ Fernandez. Known as the Romeo San Andres, it is the latest addition to the Romeo by Romeo family, and it is a whopper of a cigar.

The San Andres is crafted in AJs factory in the heart of Esteli Nicaragua. It is rolled using aged Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos for a rich and zesty center. The finishing touch is a stunning Mexican San Andres wrapper that provides wonderful notes of dark chocolate and espresso. This cigar really rounds out the Romeo line, with a thick and bold maduro really being the missing link in the portfolio.

 Right now you can enjoy the new Romeo San Andres and the entire Romeo y Julieta line at Serious Cigars.

Christin Eiora is a man of many talents. He made his name when the Eiora family owned Camacho and turned it into one of the best Honduran cigars in the world. After selling the brand, Christian broke out on his own and has continued to create some top of the line smokes. His name brand, CLE, is a top of the line, refined, classy smoke. However, Christian also wanted to show his wild side and so he teamed up with Tom Lazuka to create an insane new line, literally insane.

 The Asylum Schizo is not something you would expect from an Eiroa. First of all it is a Nicaraguan cigar, where as Christian is primarily known for Honduran. It is an affordable, bundled smoke, quite contrary to the high end Camachos and CLES he creates. It also comes in very big ring gauges ranging from 50 to 70. However, you can tell the work, time and craftsmanship that went into making this cigar. That’s how you know its from Eirora. It is complex, beautifully constructed and bursting with flavor. It has notes of pepper, leather, cinnamon and earth with a dash of sweet spice towards the end.

 What makes this cigar all the more attractive is the price. This is the top of the line, premium cigar at an everyday price, perfect for the aficionado on a budget. Even with the bigger ring gauges, this cigar burns straight and true all the way down. Pick up your bundle of the Asylum Schizo today at Serious Cigars.

When Matt Booth left the cigar industry, we all knew he was going to one day come back…it was just a matter of how and when. I think we all knew it was going to be a very special project, but the actual results are above and beyond. When Boofy returned to the business, he decided to team up with his old friend Robert Caldwell. You now have two of the most eccentric and creative minds in cigars collaborating on one of the biggest releases of the year. And guess what, we now have it in stock.

 The Hit & Run is a medium to full body with an incredibly complex profile. It is hand rolled with select Dominican filler tobaccos and a sultry Indonesian binder. The wrapper is an oily Ecuadorian Habano. It starts out with a blast of pepper, then calms into a luscious medium body with notes of spice, cedar, and caramel.

 Each puff of this smoke bring something new to the table and keeps the smoker guessing at which flavor is going to come next. This may be a leap, but the consensus around here is that this collaboration between these two titans may be one of the best cigars of year. Room 101 has now combined with Caldwell and bringing the best aspects of both to this fantastic smoke.

Nick Melillo is the King of Connecticut. He has a passion for his home state and the tremendous tobacco that it produces. He is one of the top blenders in the industry and has become famous for his use of Connecticut broadleaf tobacco. In order to pay homage to his home and the great part is has played in this history of cigars, Nick created this more budget friendly line that has become one of his most popular cigars.

 Charter Oak is named after the famed Oak Tree that once hid the Royal Charter of Connecticut from being stolen by British. Even though the tree was eventual destroyed in a violent storm, it has become a legendary symbol for the state. This cigar is labeled with an image of that historic tree. The Charter Oak is a great mellow to medium bodied cigar that uses aged Nicaraguan filler and binder tobaccos. It is available in two different wrapper varieties, both from the great state of Connecticut.

 If you are looking for an incredibly smooth and creamy cigar, you should pick up the Charter Oak natural, that utilizes a flawless Connecticut Shade wrapper that boasts wonderful notes of cream, vanilla, and cedar. If you re like me, you enjoy something a little darker and richer. That is when you light up the Charter Oak maduro that features Nicks signature Connecticut broadleaf wrapper. Each puff delivers great notes of dark chocolate, coffee, caramel and dark fruit.

 If you smoked this cigar for free, you would easily think its in the upper price range. Its construction is impeccable and its complexity is bar none. However, this is an incredibly well priced cigar, making it an outstanding everyday smoke for the true aficionado. Pick up your box of the Charter Oak from Foundation Cigars today!

The Grupo de Maestro represent over 100 years of combined cigar experience. They are the main blenders for Altadis USA and are responsible for all the Dominican blends for Montecristo, Romeo and of course H.Upmann. A few years ago, the group released a special, limited edition that brought their name to the forefront of the cigar industry. The Montecristo Grupo de Maestro was a bold and complex smoke that showcased the talents and experience of this group of blenders.

 This year, the group has decided to release a new edition of their namesake, this time using one of the oldest cigar lines in the world. The H.Upmann name has been around for well over 100 years and from its time in Cuba to its modern home in the DR carry’s with it thoughts of quality, reliability and complexity. The H.Upmann Connecticut Grupo de Maestro verifies these qualities.

 This may be one of the most complex, Connecticut wrapped cigars ever created. It is hand rolled with aged Dominican and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos, followed by a rich Dominican binder. While the wrapper is a golden brown Ecuadorian Connecticut leaf, the cap is in fact part of a maduro leaf, giving it just a touch of dark chocolate to go along with its nutty and creamy center.

 Like the rest of the Grupo de Maestro line, the H.Upmann Connecticut was rolled in very limited quantities. Pick up yours today at Serious Cigars.

In 2010, Drew Estate was a very different company then it is now. The Liga Privada was not as widely available as it was now, so it was almost like a mythical creature then a regular line. There was no Herrera Esteli, KFC, Nica Rustica, or Unico Series. At this time Drew Estate was still mostly known for their infused cigars, such as Acid and Tabak. They had very few premium cigar offerings and were just starting to get traction with the Liga Privada line. For one of their first major releases with a premium cigar, they decided to go big. The result was a highly complex, full bodied smoke that takes its name from a Public Enemy song.

 MUWAT originally stood for My UZI Weighs a Ton, a reference to the a popular rap song, however after some issues it is now simply called MUWAT. It was a collaboration with the famed Joya de Nicaragua factory, and uses some of the finest tobaccos available to both companies. This hand rolled powerhouse uses aged Brazilian Mata Fina filler tobaccos, an Ecuadorian Connecticut binder, and a dark and oily Mexican San Andres Negro wrapper.

 This complex blend of tobaccos creates a plethora or rich and strong flavors. Notes of Dark chocolate and cocoa combine effortlessly with strong hints of spice, pepper, leather and earth along with the slightest touch of dark fruit notes. Its bigger ring gauges provided a great amount of smoke and made it incredibly popular among bigger ring gauge aficionados.

 To this day, the MUWAT remains an amazing, top of the line full bodied smoke with great construction and a low price point. It is the perfect everyday smoke for someone who wants that extra kick. Pick up your pack of the MUWAT by Drew Estate at Serious Cigars.
