Punch (Core Line) London Club4 Star Ratingtransplant2/6/2016 8:50 AM
I live in Chicago and only smoke outside. On some January and February days, you just don't want to spend 1 1/2 hours having a smoke no matter how good the stick is. In the winter, when I have a cigar, it's usually as a walking the store, walking the dog or just around the block.  The Punch London Club is perfect for that 20-40 minute stroll.  

Excellent construction and great burn.  Not particularly complex, but lots of tobacco smoke and flavor.  I've still yet to find a Punch that I don't love.
Curivari Buenaventura Pralines P5544 Star RatingStogieDad2/5/2016 6:18 PM
The maduro wrapper really does set this apart from the regular release.  Really brought a richness to this smoke.  Hearty notes of oak, pepper, earth and a hint of sweetness highlight the profile, and while it is not the most complex Curivari I have had, it is a nice "sit back and relax" cigar that you don't have to think about, just enjoy.

Performed perfectly, perfect burn line, tons of smoke, nice firm ash.  Easy draw, really can't complain anywhere about the construction.  A great price point, as Curivari is so good at doing.  Box worthy for sure, especially since they come in 10 ct boxes.  
Lost & Found (formely B/C/S, Impromptu) Cream Machine (Pepper Cream Soda)4 Star RatingStogieDad2/5/2016 6:05 PM
Probably my favorite of the Lost & Found series.  I was a little apprehensive as the stick felt quite light with a big soft spot about a third of the way up.  But the draw was solid producing a ton of smoke.  The wrapper was silky but quite brittle.  The burn was perfect though, razor sharp through the end.  Very firm ash as well.  Oddly well behaved for a cigar I had construction concerns about.

The flavor profile was very nice.  Started with a little cedar and creaminess, soon joined by a nice clean pepper hit.  Smooth tobacco, some citrus and a faint nuttiness are there as well, but the combo of the pepper and cream, as is its namesake, actually deliver.  A little different profile actually, and nice to have one of these Lost & Found deliver more than I expected.  Good smoke.
La Perla Habana Grand Pearl Robusto3.5 Star Ratinggitfiddl2/5/2016 4:21 PM
I picked this cigar up in a sampler a month or so ago.  The wrapper had a few large veins, but had a nice sheen to it. I used the punch on my lighter to cut a "figure 8" in the head.  The draw was fine.  Pre-light taste was grassy, with a peanutty kind of flavor.  

Once lit, the pre-light flavors were still there, with the addition of some cedar and pepper.  The cigar was on the milder side to start.  Things picked up midway when the nutty taste got a little deeper.  The cedar started to come out a bit more, and the initial grassy taste became more of a toasted wheat flavor.  Towards the end, it got a little licorice kind of bitter, not real bad, but unexpected due to the previous mildness.  The ash was a firm gray and held on for two inches before dropping.

Not a bad cigar, but not stellar, just better than average.

Plasencia Reserva 1898 Robusto4 Star RatingCharlieOne2/5/2016 3:44 PM
I bought a 5'er of these from the devil dirt cheap. 2 weeks rest. Perfect moderately loose draw, nice razor sharp burn. Rich coffee flavor with hints of cocoa, spice and pepper. Nearly full body, medium strength. Possibly the best cheap stick I've had!
Cigar Factory - New Orleans Private Reserve Corona Grande Maduro4.5 Star Ratingtjm08312/5/2016 1:01 PM
Oily Brazlian Maduro with some protruding veins.  A medium draw brings loads of meaty leather and a medium black pepper spice. Some toffee and dark chocolate back up the flavors with a noticeable linger.

The smoke stays pretty consistent throughout. A bold leathery smoke that is smooth and pleasant to smoke. A fantastic maduro, even though j haven't aged this one at all. Given that these sticks are rolled in house, a little age could have easily made this one a 5 star stick.
Illusione Gigantes4 Star RatingCharlieOne2/5/2016 10:15 AM
Rested for 2 months. Mild, light roasted coffee and hay and tobacco flavor at the light. Perfect, moderately loose draw. Gobs of smoke and a near razor sharp burn.
Retro-hale has a off-putting hay and barnyard flavor.

At the half some mild pepper appeared. Retro is more pleasant. Resting 4 minutes between draws is not an issue.

No complexity or changes other than a slow steady rise to a medium body and strength.
2 hour pleasant smoke.
A.J. Fernandez New World (Nicaraguan wrapper) Virrey4.5 Star RatingMacMac2/5/2016 9:54 AM
The A. J. Fernandez New World (Nicaraguan wrapper) Virrey is a beautiful cigar. The wrapper is dark brown and well made. The wrapper is oily and textured. The wide band and the foot ribbon are very nice. The cap was well made and punched easily. The draw was open. The cigar's aroma was of barnyard. The box press made the cigar feel good to hold. It lit a easily producing a good volume of rich smoke. The cigar had a nice tobacco taste with light pepper and spice. The cigar is full in body and strength.
Don Pepin Garcia (My Father Cigars) Blue Label (Original) Lancero4 Star RatingCharlieOne2/5/2016 7:05 AM
Purchased at a local B&M where it had been resting for months. Paired with black coffee. At the light the draw was tight, smooth blended medium body flavors of dark roasted coffee and a mild black pepper finish. I rolled the stick repeatedly at the band in attempt to loosen the draw and had a little success. Constant tending was required to keep it lit until the half. The flavors built to a full body and I could finally let it rest for a minute without worry. No complexity or changes. Medium strength appeared in the last third. I recommend dry-boxing for 2 days before enjoyment. Not box worthy but worth a try.  
Ave Maria Reconquista5 Star Ratingtjm08312/5/2016 4:48 AM
This is a dark and oily torpedo with prominent veins and raised bumps.

The draw is much lighter than I expected.  Free flow of smoke with flavors of dark chocolate, earth, and leather are prominent, and a fair amount of spice is present.

As it burns the spice levels off at a solid medium range.  The leather and earth flavors grow, and notes of coffee beans, dark cane syrup, and chocolate solidify.

The last third sees even more dark chocolate and espresso flavors, with a bit of dried fruit.  

A good deal of nicotine here.  Plus this smoke lasts well over an hour.

This smoke is bold and flavorful.  Not for the feint of heart.  I am very impressed with this stogie.
