Graycliff Platinum Edicion Limitada 2010 PG4 Star RatingHot Stuff x10/23/2014 3:38 AM
This is a good mild-medium cigar with a light, nutty flavor and some gentle spice. Burned will and put out plenty of smoke. Construction was top-notch. I got this from CI in a sampler of some sort, but would happily smoke again.  A very strong 4-stars.
Partagas Cifuentes Enero (Winter 2006 Seasonal Blend)1.5 Star RatingChadboskie10/22/2014 7:55 PM
I tried 2 of these cigars, hoping the first one was a fluke.  But they both had a way too tight draw. I had to puff about 4 times to get good smoke. The flavor wasn't much to talk about either.Just a strong tobacco flavor.  It wasn't a flavor I couldn't stand,  but just not much to talk about.  I think this would be a good cigar if you like to let them stick out your mouth and chew on it.
La Flor Dominicana Air Bender Chisel4 Star Ratinglubrix10/22/2014 4:45 PM
A solid feel to this stick.An oily sheen on the seamless wrapper with one vein.The first third were tastes of pepper,cedar,leather and cardamom.The mid's were coffee,leather,nuts and spice with notes of cinnamon.The last third was heavy cedar,leather and spice to the finish.Nice rich and full flavors with complexity.The draw was great,the burn was dead on and the ash held strongly.Medium-full in body.
Diesel Hair Of The Dog Robusto4.5 Star RatingItalianGuido10/22/2014 12:41 PM
Another great creation from Diesel. A solid smooth stick that feels a little light, but packed with smoke. Woody, earthy  and full of flavor. Good looking  grey ash. The hot cocoa and coffee finish linger long. Warning: This dog bites! Full strength!
Sindicato Cigars Hex Robusto3 Star RatingStogieDad10/22/2014 11:24 AM
Quite an odd experience with this cigar.

Its a great looking stick, hefty in hand with a nice pigtail.  I decided to just pull the pigtail instead of cut, which left a ragged edge but a good draw.  Lots of smoke, slightly jagged burn at times but corrected itself and never required touch-up.  The ash held almost two inches before being tapped.  Weirdly I went to remove some of the ragged tobacco from the cap and once wet, it was like chewing tobacco, stained my hands and you could taste it, which is why I was removing it.

Starting out, I thought I was on to someting.  Great notes of grilled meat, some slight pepper, and oak.  This continued until the first ash, and an acidic bitterness started coming through, light at first but building fast.  By the time I had about two inches left, it was really taking over the smoke, and totally soiled my opinion on this cigar.  

I was thinking 4 until around halfway in, then it went downhill.  I will leave it at 3, as the first half was tasty and the construction was good, but man was it a sad finish.
Litto Gomez Diez Americano4.5 Star Ratings+j10/22/2014 4:23 AM
This began with a nice balance of pepper and wood, and a slightly tight draw. Very soon after notes of lemon rind showed up making for a masterful counterpoint to the initial flavors and continuing onto a long, zesty finish. The stogie begged for a fresh hop IPA so I felt pressed to pop open a Stone Enjoy By 10.31.14 IPA. The draw soon got even tighter and I had to clip the head again, half an inch in. The strength then began increasing gradually toward the end of the first third with an addition of very smooth white pepper notes. At this point it was way past my bedtime and I really didn't need any more alcohol but the flavor profile was too marvelous (albeit for the tight draw) to worry about such details.
The balanced medium-full profile driven by citrus notes and faint hints of nuts became full on the last third with an addition of cream. Burned for well over an hour.
I will have this again in a heartbeat, but next time I'll make sure to let it rest out of the cello to mitigate the tight draw.

La Aurora Miniatures3.5 Star Ratings+j10/22/2014 3:09 AM
These are some very flavorful cigarillos. Given the full flavor and hot burn due to the small ring gauge I'd label these as medium-full. Supposedly they contain long-fillers, but I wish the Cameroon wrapper was a little more aged as it seems to produce what for me is an unpleasant cigarette-like smoke followed by some slight bitterness on the finish. I haven't tried to let these rest out of the cello, but I think it might make for a better smoking experience. Burn time is about 10-15 minutes.

Diesel Unholy Cocktail (torpedo)4.5 Star RatingItalianGuido10/21/2014 8:35 PM
Heavy, great feel in the hand. The torpedo shape is great for this blend. Burn was fantastic. Solid ash.

Grass and hay at first, but quickly evolves into an ass kicker. This is full strength. Earth and cedar give way to nice chocolate. Man, I really like the combination of flavors in my mouth.

Everything about this is wonderful.
5 Vegas Classic Robusto3.5 Star RatingItalianGuido10/21/2014 8:31 PM
Construction - feels good in the hand, tight and solid. Greenish brown wrapper. Draw is a little tight. The ash is salt and pepper  Burn was great, no touch up needed.

Smoking - Mellow mild to medium body with wood, cedar, leather, and tobacco flavors. It's a bit musty and spicy. The cocoa finish is always a favorite of mine. Medium flavor, easy to retro hale. Nothing harsh about this stick. Enough smoke to fill your mouth, but not a profuse amount of smoke.
This is a good everyday smoke.

Casa Magna Domus Magnus Limitada Optimus3.5 Star RatingBigh10/21/2014 6:48 PM
Strong smoke light peppery hints of toast and chocolate. A smoke worthy of pairing with a brandy or dark stout beer.Consistent throughout in its flavor and a good burning stick. A smoke to enjoy.
