Hi Folks. I wanted to highlight some fine work by our brotherhood, and in particular, Nathan (nwb). Thanks to Nathan's efforts again this year and the generosity of our members, we will be sending over 1300 cigars to our well deserved troops who sacrifice so much so we can enjoy the freedom we have. These should hit in time for the holidays. Click here for some pics. Thanks Nathan and thanks members for another successful drive!

Chaveta Corona Gorda3 Star Ratingbmac77547/21/2014 5:13 PM
This cigar has a very oily dark brazilian wrapper that is sort of lumpy and also has small veins.  The dominant flavors are wood and leather.  There is also a pretty spicy pepper aftertaste left behind.  The ash is dark gray and firm, and a nice amount of smoke comes out of these.

Viaje 50/50 Red Label No.1 Corona Gorda4.5 Star RatingThe Burn Ward7/21/2014 2:49 PM
2 years aged. Nice looking well rolled cigar.

Snipped the cap. Lit easily and burned even throughout.

The bands removed easily.

The flavor profile had just enough spice and sweetness throughout. The transition was very subtle. I couldn't stop puffing because each puff delivered such a great taste.

Perfect draw and smoke production.

I'm going to have to pick up more and let them rest.
L'Atelier LAT544.5 Star Ratingd33rock7/21/2014 1:28 PM
I got a 5-er of these last year and let them sit in the humi for about 6 months before i tried one. Its a great looking cigar, nice aroma, and firm but not tight draw. Flavors of leather, wood and spice throughout, this is
a really great cigar start to finish. Get some
Frankenmuth Original Cigar Company Fat Rum Tavern Original2.5 Star RatingHot Stuff x7/21/2014 3:47 AM
Got this from Horrido a couple years ago.  If this is an infused cigar (some in this line are), I guess I rested it too long because it didn't seem to have an infused flavor.  This is a rustic looking cigar, sort of looks like a Backwoods brand cigar. No cut was necessary.  Cigar was quite mild. Flavor, there wasn't much. It was just a mild smoke with mild flavor. Not bad, but nothing to get excited about.
Man O' War Seconds Ruination Robusto No.14.5 Star Ratingbmac77547/20/2014 6:56 PM
These are seconds so they come individually wrapped in cello but there is no band applied.  I have had a couple so far and the only problem in appearance I could see was a tiny crack right at the foot.

This cigar smokes very evenly, has a great draw, thick white ash.  The flavors are cedar, chocolate combined with a light spice.  Thick clouds of smoke pour out of these.

Overall, nothing to complain about here.  If you love the Ruination cigars, try the seconds.  You can get these for a 1/4 of the price of the ones with the bands.  
Blessed Leaf Kairos3.5 Star Ratingntanner7/20/2014 5:31 PM
     Bought a few of these because I liked the back story. They look good, solid canon, sweet tobacco and spice at the foot, the wrapper is pretty smooth and it has a slight box press to it. The cap is very well applied, almost invisible. It cut's well and the draw is wide open with a musty earth taste. It take's a flame well and has a nice toasty aroma as the foot set's.
     A real hit of spice right off, sort of teared me up, smoke production is very hi. There is a hint of cream and a caramel note in the background once you get past the spice. There is also a almost cinnamon oil like taste at the tip of my tongue and some wood notes are also apparent. The spice settled down after the first 1/2 inch and it is starting to balance out some. Definitely off to a good start.
     The burn got a little off and the ash was a little flakey but held solid to the start of the second third. Smoke production is very good. Wood has become the dominant flavor with a salty sweet aftertaste that is short duration and some cream hint's in the background.
     Espresso marks the start of the last third. The burn got off and needed correction again. The espresso morphs into cappuccino as the creamy note,s return. Wood flavors are also still apparent. The spice is also starting to pick up some strength again, not as bold as in the beginning but enough to make it's presence known.
     Not a out standing smoke but not to bad either. I wont go out of my way to get more of these but I did enjoy the time I spent with this cigar. I found it a bit mild for my taste's but it did have a nice flavor profile. Definitely worth trying. People who like a mild to medium smoke will probably enjoy this one.
Padron (Traditional) Delicias Maduro4.5 Star Ratingbmac77547/20/2014 5:03 PM
Typical construction from the Padron line, its a little bumpy with a rich aroma.  Cuts great and lights quickly.

The flavors are coffee, baking cocoa, and a rich earthiness tobacco.  It has a bright white thick ash, and gives off plenty of smoke.

Great tasting cigar, the burn line is spot on, Medium strength, and smokes in just about 40 minutes.
Quesada Heisenberg Project Petite4 Star Ratingbmac77547/20/2014 4:38 PM
Nice small cigar with a dark chocolate wrapper.  Starts off a little strong with spice but turns quickly into a lighter spice, earthy tobacco, with a hint of coffee on the finish.

Small in size but packs a large medium strength, great ash, and smokes in just under 25 minutes.
Trinidad (Cuban) Fundadores5 Star Ratinglarraldesco7/20/2014 3:56 PM
Cigarro colorado-colorado, extraordinariamente liso de capa, con el tradicional "rabo de cerdo" en la perilla.  Torch suave y corte con cutter para evitar problemas de tiro distintos de los que por vitola/torcido pueda tener.
El tiro correcto, ni mucho ni poco. Humo denso y oloroso, ligeramente especiado en nariz. La ceniza siempre grisácea con vetas más negras y quebradiza, sin aguantar más de dos centímetros antes de caer. Combustión excepcionalmente pareja durante toda la fumada.

He disfrutado enormemente este Fundadores, con una fortaleza baja media pero multitud de notas amaderadas, de granos suavemente terrosos, frutos secos delicadamente amargos (con ese final de paladar tan tan cubano), sabores de nuez moscada y con un marcado retrogusto que hace que este cigarro entre en mi top ten. Y duraba y duraba... ¡casi una hora y media!. Los últimos diez minutos, sensacionales por las impresiones de ese humo cargado de especias blancas en la nariz... 
Al terminar, un gran abrazo al torcedor, por el tiraje y armado perfecto de este cigarro, que bien se sabe de la Complejidad del armado.
Maker's Mark (Ted's Cigars) 650 Toro4 Star RatingBrlesq7/20/2014 1:22 PM
I've had this in my humidor for over 2 years and just never found the desire to smoke it, but today I decided to try it out while power-washing the deck.  What a pleasant surprise!  Nice bourbon aroma from the cigar and the glass tube. Some slight bourbon flavor after lighting along with a decent Sumatra wrapper.  No pepper or spice . . . just a pleasant noontime cigar of mild-medium body and strength. Loosely rolled tobacco with an easy draw. I enjoyed it much more than I expected, and will have to keep a few on hand.
