  • La Aroma de Cuba Noblesse

    Bryan
    93
    La Aroma de Cuba’s Noblesse is pretty legit. This blend was definitely filed under “office favorite” after we got a couple of samples from IPCPR. But what surprised me about the cigar was how lackluster the dull, Ecuadorian Habano Rosado wrapper looked when I took the cello off. There are some blends that look so appealing I start to fumbling around with my lighter and cutter …

  • Don Tomas Clasico Maduro

    Bryan Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover
    90
    Talk about a cigar I never thought I would purchase. Don Tomas may have been an industry giant at one point in time, but in the 10+ years I’ve been enjoying cigars, ‘The Don’ has remained pretty quiet. Maybe it’s the band that reads ‘Don Tomas’ or is it ‘Don’t Omas?’ My subconscious has always replied, ‘Ok, ok, I won’t.’ Until two weeks ago anyway, when I was offered one Don Tomas Clasico free …

  • Warped Cigars Flor Del Valle

    Bryan Flor del Valle by Warped Cigars
    It’s easy to get wrapped up with how good these cigars look. The packaging and bands are top notch and the cigars show off an impeccable construction. But like most seasoned enthusiasts, I’ve been burned by all these attributes before only to fall victim to a lackluster blend. This is not the case Flor del Valle. Produced at the Casa Fernandez factory in Nicaragua, this blend …

  • Tatuaje 10 Year Anniversary

    Bryan Tatuaje 10 Year
    93
    Belle Encre (5.4”x48, Perfecto): Full disclosure: I’m not a big Tatuaje fan. Don’t get me wrong, the cigars are made with supreme tobaccos, construction, and an incredible attention to detail. After going through a big Tatuaje phase two years ago, it’s hard for me to get excited about another blend from this brand. With Tatuaje 10th Anniversary, I was peer-pressured into …

  • San Lotano Requiem

    Bryan San Lotano Habano
    Robusto (5.0"x54): A great size to start this line off with. A nice mixture of cream and spice right up front will instantly get your palate’s attention. The size is good for about 45 minutes of enjoyment; just enough for a nice break in your day. Toro (6.0"x54): The Toro builds on what the Robusto started. This size is definitely one of the best cigars that have come out …

  • La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor

    Bryan
    Belicoso (5.5"x54) In our opinion, this is the best size of the blend. The maduro wrapper and the zesty fillers blend harmoniously to form a well-balanced cigar with mixtures of chocolate and a spice that lingers on your palate. Magnifico (6.0"x52) Similar to the Belicoso, this blend features a well-balanced smoke with excellent construction. The smaller ring gauge, however, makes …

  • Nica Libre

    Bryan Nica Libre Potencia
    Double Robusto (5.0"x54) Incredible. Super full and superiorly balanced. Burns cool while expelling thick smoke and maintains a fantastic aroma. Very complex with a ton of spice through the nostrils. Torpedo (6.0"x56) Best way to describe this size compared to the others? Elegant. Instead of blasting your palate with robust flavors from head to foot, the blend seems to build in this …
