Dunhill 1907 Rothschild4 Star Ratings+j10/21/2014 1:36 AM
I love the way this Rothschild feels in the hand.
Starts off with notes of leather, citrus, pepper, and a floral component I can't quite put my finger on, as well as notes of green leaf tannins on the finish. The pepper intensifies about 1/8th of an inch in, revealing new layers of red pepper and cinnamon spices, and finishing with woodsy flavors; the strength is medium-full at this point.
By the end of the first third the draw got a little tight through the 9mm hole and I had to employ a guillotine cut. The burn line then got strangely uneven producing V-like canoeing, but a little saliva helped even it out after a few more puffs.
The second third then saw the mild bitter leaf tannin notes morphed into more pronounced licorice notes on the finish.
The last third saw an addition of sweet wood on the palate, followed by black pepper and then soft anise on the long finish, while the draw tightened again requiring another cut.
Burned for about 45 minutes.
Would love to try this again in the Robusto size.

La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor Robusto4 Star Ratingpromtbr8810/20/2014 3:27 PM
Second of these I have tried. As others noted, great construction all around. I had no burn issues other than needing a touch up near the end. A nice combo of Espresso and chocolate and earth. To me its a medium to Medium full body. A bit of spice/ pepper but not overwhelming. Flavor profile stayed the same thru out the stick. I want to give this a higher rating, but I did get the back of the throat dryness with this as well as the first one of these I tried. I have not smoked a ton of cigars, so maybe that just me and maduros. Tho I am confused as some online sellers list this as a maduro, but others reviewed this said it was not. Nice stick.
Miami Cigar Company KILO4 Star RatingVroomp10/20/2014 11:43 AM
This cigar has been aging for a little over a year. It has a nice semi-smooth wrapper of dark brown with a light sheen to it and one prominent vein showing. The cigar has a light barnyard and wood scent from the foot.
   After lighting one is greeted with a burst of pepper followed by a cedar flavor with a light spice mix. The cigar changes very little during the first half but, did ramp up slightly towards the end and the cedar turned more like Oak with some nice hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. At the nub it was even sweeter with a slight earthy flavor added in....
Curivari Reserva Limitada Café Café 603.5 Star RatingStogieDad10/20/2014 9:01 AM
Unfortunately, this was not my favorite Curivari.  Certainly not a bad smoke, in fact I would like to try the smaller ring gauge to see if there is a difference.  It was a bit light in hand, with a dry looking wrapper, but the fill felt fine and the performance was spot on.  Perfect draw, lots of smoke, and held a firm ash.  Can’t complain about any of that.

Flavor wise, the main notes I got were some creamy coffee, cocoa powder, and clean tobacco.  While very pleasant and paired nice with coffee, they were a bit subdued and a bit monotonous.  I kept waiting for something else to play against the sweetness, and just never really got anything.

Again, not a bad smoke at all, and will certainly try a smaller vitola to see the difference, but for me, this was a good not great cigar.
Te-Amo World Selection Series Nicaragua Blend Robusto4 Star Ratingebernabe10/19/2014 9:32 PM
I enjoyed this cigar very much.  The cigar had a great draw and even burn.  I did not have to relight at all.  I got a nice woodsy taste with a bit of a spicy flavor.  I would smoke this one again.
Te-Amo World Selection Series Dominicana Blend Robusto2.5 Star Ratingebernabe10/19/2014 9:29 PM
This cigar did not have much flavor to me.  The cigar did burn evenly and have a good draw though.  All I can really say is this cigar reminded me of burning leather.  I won't be smoking any of these in the future.
Djarum Little Cigars Special Filter4 Star Ratingebernabe10/19/2014 9:22 PM
The Djarum Special to me has a more straight clove flavor.  I do like these, but sometimes they can be a little harsh on my throat.  Still, a nice change of pace.
Djarum Little Cigars Splash Filter4 Star Ratingebernabe10/19/2014 9:19 PM
This Djarum clove cigar to me has the clove flavor with a hint of orange or citrus.  I will smoke these, but prefer the Djarum Bali Hai brand a little more.
Djarum Little Cigars Black Filter4 Star Ratingebernabe10/19/2014 9:17 PM
The "Djarum Black" cigars are a good change from time to time.

This version of the clove cigar to me has the clove flavor with an underlying vanilla taste.  With the clove flavored cigars, I've notice people will either like them or hate them, no in-between.
Djarum Little Cigars Bali Hai Filter5 Star Ratingebernabe10/19/2014 9:10 PM
For flavored cigars, I do like these.  Having smoked clove cigarettes until the FDA decided to make them illegal in the US, these are a nice change of pace.

The Bali Hai brand of this have the clove taste and an underlying fruity taste which reminds me of the juicy fruit gum.
