  • Gurkha Red Witch

    Dave Season Of The Witch
    Rothchild (6.0”x54): Medium-bodied with more earth presented than spice. A touch of espresso reveals itself on the exhale while the blend burns even and true from head to foot due to its box-pressed shape. A great blend for any enthusiast. 89/100 [Buy Now] Robusto (5.0”x52): Quite similar to the late Gurkha Regent if you're familiar with that blend. Offers a smoother charater than …

  • ACID Ltd. by Drew Estate Opulence 3

    Josh Infused Cigars
    I'm not a big fan of "infused" cigars but when Jonathan Drew first handed me a box of Opulence 3 down in Nicaragua, two days later I found myself with 6 sticks left. I was shocked with the blend's fantastic balance between natural tobacco flavors and sweetness. It also contains tobaccos cultivated in 2005, 2006 and 2007. …

However, Erin Go Bragh offers only a subtle note of whiskey with sweetness throughout and a light tobacco finish. This is a good starting point for those looking to get into the infused lane. Perfectly balanced. …

  • Drew Estate Tabak Especial

    Tim Infused Cigars
    I never do this, but I reached for an "infused" cigar the other day; Tabak Especial Red Eye, a shot of espresso in a cigar. I paired it with a Pumpkin beer called "Pumking." I can't believe it, but it was an excellent combo! Red Eye has a light sweetness that quickly fades as the bittersweet coffee-chocolate combo intensifies on the finish. …

  • Drew Estate Natural

    Andrew Infused Cigars
    Calling this cigar "Dirt" is more akin to calling a blonde bombshell "homely." She's dark but still light on her feet and incredible sweet; she's the kind of gal you can smoke in front of your mother as she'll like the aroma. Heavy with coffee and just a hint of earth make Dirt perfect for dessert. Instead of some decaf as a night cap, try Dirt instead. …
