Hoyo La Amistad Gold

Dave An Intriguing Collaboration
Developed by the Cuban cigar maker, AJ Fernandez, who has produced some of the finest cigars in Nicaragua, Hoyo La Amistad is a bold move for the legendary Hoyo de Monterrey brand.

Camacho Powerband

Dave
After enjoying Camacho American Barrel-Aged, I was very eager to try this latest release within the Master Build Series. In typical Camacho fashion, Powerband caters to their core base of full-bodied fanatics. What sets this one apart though is a propriety bunching process which helps to maximize airflow without sacrificing the amount of tobaccos used. The very smooth and easy draw once lit was …

The Griffin's Nicaragua

Dave A More Powerful Creature
I’ve always been a fan of The Griffin’s. When you’re in the mood for a reliable morning or mid-day mellow cigar, they never let you down.

Covered in a dark brown Connecticut seed wrapper, this cigar could easily be mistaken as a Habano. The construction is great except for some minor discoloration and a soft spot down by the foot. On the low side of medium-bodied this Connecticut blend was a nice change of pace and impressive for the price. It delivers smooth and creamy flavors. It’s not overly complex but works nicely as an …

AVO XO was one of the first premium cigars I ever had. They began selling in New York in 1988 following a relationship between master cigar maker Hendrik Kelner in the Dominican Republic and the musician and cigar aficionado, Avo Uvezian.

Diesel Uncut

It’s no secret we love Diesel around the office. And when we look at sales numbers, we can see you agree with us. So naturally, when Diesel Uncut hit the docks, they moved out pretty quickly. So now that the dust has settled a bit, it’s time to fire one up for a review. Diesel Uncut wasn’t what I expected. It’s got a rich cedary core that gives off a semi-sweet finish. And the finish is …

Spectre by AJ Fernandez

Dave Spectre by AJ Fernandez
92
Overview: When the blend was launched, the contents of the cigar were unknown. Of course now that enthusiasts have got their hands on it, we’ve figured out that the fillers have a dose of Latakia tobaccos from Turkey. These smoky tobaccos are usually used with pipes and only very few blends use them for cigars. Easily one of AJ’s most unique blends to date, this is one that I’ve …

Robusto (5.0”x52): Naturally the best size to start with any cigar line, the robusto comes out of the gates flawlessly. A rich aroma mirrors the almond and espresso notes up front and I’m thinking this could be my new favorite Rocky blend. After about an inch, however, the cigar starts to burn hot and the rich flavors of before are replaced by an unbalanced harsh smoke. What happened? …

Wafting waves of spice and rich espresso sweetness, this size offers a nice kick start to …

General Grant

Dave Great For The Price
For an inexpensive handmade, General Grant does the job. Don't expect a well-balanced, super-premium character here. Instead, you'll be met with complexity, some sweetness, but mostly a gritty earthiness that is far from refined. And this is a good thing. For being rolled freehand without the use of molds, the construction holds up and the cigar burns quite nicely. The blend does present some …

For the high price point, there are better options out there. …
