The 2015 Marine Toys for Tots drive raised a very generous total of over $2000 that was passed along to Toys for Tots. This was a excellent opportunity for brotherhood to contribute to a great organization that provides gifts for those less fortunate children in time for Christmas. A special thanks goes out to Brad (Longhorn) for running the drive again.

Casa Fernandez Aganorsa Leaf Maduro Delire3.5 Star Ratingtjm08315/4/2016 6:30 PM
Heavy rich smoke with buttery leather flavors accented by dark chocolate. The draw is tight, affecting smoke production and the burn runs quite a bit and requires corrections.  The flavors are very nice though and match the beautiful stuck. Which is box pressed and oily and double banded. Halfway through a subtle wood flavor emerges. Strong flavors of roasted nuts are also present now. The dark chocolate and leather flavors are still strong.  The draw has become reasonable and the burn stopped running.

All in all, this is a tasty smoke, but construction problems mired the first half and affected my enjoyment of the smoke.
Perla del Mar Perla P3.5 Star Ratingnirab5/4/2016 4:28 PM
Beautiful box pressed, short n stubby cigar, with a nice smooth tan wrapper, along with a great band. First flavors of rich tobacco, a touch of pepper, cashews and a wisp of grassiness. Further in, the cigar adds a creaminess to the smoke, and the nutty flavors pick up a notch, and there is some sweetness in the background. Cigar finishes without much changing. Burn, ash and draw are great, and the smoke output is fantastic. Nothing real fancy, just a solid smoke that goes great with a cup of coffee in the morning...noon or night!

Don Pepin Garcia (My Father Cigars) My Father Le Bijou 1922 Churchill2 Star RatingDave S.5/4/2016 12:22 PM
Humidor Date: April 8, 2016
Smoke Date: May 3, 2016
Smoke Time: 1 Hour 15 Minutes
Vendor: Cigarauctioneer.com, $8.78, $202 for box of 23
Weight: 0.6 oz.
Beverage: Mount Gay Black Barrel Rum
Activity: Sitting Out Front

Pre-light—This was a very attractive, rugged looking cigar with a uniform dark brown (Maduro) wrapper, essentially no veins, several small soft spots, somewhat visible seams, a triple cap, and a medium-hard texture.  The wrapper smelled like barnyard with a hint of sweetness, and the draw tasted like hay.

1/3 (25 min.)—After a double-guillotine cut and an average torch light, it produced a significantly below average volume of smoke, whose aroma was appealing and very peppery.  The ash was a light grey, very flakey, and held to ¾”.  Early on, the draw was acceptable but a bit tight, and the burn never went beyond 1/8”, peak-to-valley.  After the first inch, things started to go bad, and they never recovered.  By section’s end, the smoke volume had become erratic, varying between average and non-existent; the strength became erratic, varying between mild and medium-full; and the multiple flavors began slowly disappearing.  Also, by section’s end, I had to knock-off ash constantly to get a barely adequate draw.  Initially, the flavors included the typical Don Pepin pepper blast plus cereal, earth, leather, cedar and another unknown wood, and hints of malt.  

2/3 (30 min.)—By the beginning of the second section, the smoking characteristics had stabilized at dreadful, and the initial promising flavor profile had disappeared.  Getting a marginally acceptable draw took work, and two touch-ups and two hot purges did little to improve things.  Flavors included wood—Lord knows what kind—leather, a hint of malt, and soap (honest).

Final 1/3 (20 min.)—Besides the dreadful smoking characteristics described in the second section, the burn began to canoe, and the flavor profile included only the unknown wood and earth.  With no prospect of improvement, I threw in the towel.
  
Summary—This was a very attractive cigar, but the smoking characteristics suggest that construction was flawed.  For the first inch, this appeared to be the typical high-end Don Pepin product with the trademark pepper blast and an array of pleasant flavors.  After the first inch, the cigar required constant attention with little return for the effort.  Initially the flavors included pepper, cereal, earth, leather, cedar and another unidentifiable wood, and malt.   After the first section, flavors began to deteriorate and disappear.  I’ve been a Don Pepin Garcia fan for a long time, but this experience wasn’t up to par.  

Verdict—The jury’s still out.  Try another and re-evaluate.
Ashton Aged Maduro No. 304.5 Star RatingGhuskey5/4/2016 10:29 AM
    I discovered this cigar while reading "The Ultimate Cigar Book" by Richard Hacker. He said of it, "It is one of the sweetest, mildest maderos I have ever smoked."This is my first maduro.
    I can't compare this to other maduros, but I can agree that the Ashton Agrd Maduro is indeed sweet and mild, and a good way to be introduced to the style. It was a little leathery at first, with some pepper, but by the end of the first third, those traits gave way to earth, cocoa, and cream. The aroma of the smoke had that tangy sweetness that I love too.
Rocky Patel Vintage 1992 Torpedo3 Star Ratingfugat5/4/2016 2:31 AM
Received in a trade. Flawless looking cigar. Very smooth and shiny medium chocolate brown wrapper with only the tiniest of veins. Sweet tobacco and chocolate flavors at light. Draw is pleasantly restrictive while still managing to produce tons of slightly oily smoke. After an inch the sweet tobacco still dominates but the chocolate has been replaced by a vaguely coffee flavor. Around the halfway point the sweet tobacco began to be displaced by a dry nuttiness. Don’t know that I’ve ever experienced sweet and dry simultaneously, but there it is. The bands removed easily which is always nice. The odd combination was short-lived as the dry nuttiness quickly began to dominate the tobacco flavor. Basically one note throughout. Burn was pretty solid but did require a touchup around halfway. Not a bad cigar but a quick search reveals this stick retails around $9. There are far, far better cigars available for half the price. No way I’d pay for one. Total smoking time: 1 hour.
K. A. Kendall 7-20-4 Classic Lancero4 Star Ratingtjm08315/3/2016 6:53 PM
This is well constructed lancero with a nice pigtail cap.  The presentation is great, including a nice cedar sheath and a red ribbon at the foot, in addition to the band.  The draw is easy for a lancer, and the stick produces plenty of smoke.  The flavors are very nice, starting leathery and salty with a good pepper kick.  Very clear notes of roasted nuts, and a mild bitterness emerge later, as do notes of cocoa and slightly sweetened coffee.  This cigar burns for a long time with no construction issues whatsoever.  This is a great lancero.
Ave Maria Divinia4 Star Ratingappollo5/3/2016 11:01 AM
Nice smooth stick with a slight box press with no soft spots.It has a slight oily texture to it.The stick cuts nicely and the draw is right where I like it.
It fires up nicely but I find the smoke output down until the second half.The retro produces a little spice but no pepper until the second half where a little comes into play.The other flavors I get are leather,honey,cedar.This is a nice smooth smoke and stays this way to the nub.
  The burn time is about 1hr.50min.and is a nice relaxing smoke.The ash is a light grey and firm.The strength is medium to medium full.Nice stick would certainly smoke more.
Alec Bradley Family Blend "The Lineage" Toro4 Star RatingGhuskey5/3/2016 8:52 AM
    The first thing I noticed before lighting up was the presence of two filler colors - tan and near-black. I've never seen that before.
    This is my fifth Alec Bradley, and this stick makes the cigar maker 4 for 5 in good taste. Light body, light strength, cream, caramel, and cedar. Some cayenne pepper for a moment early on, but no pepper fter that, and no leather. It smokes cool. A good morning smoke, or an evening smoke for those preferring a lighter body.
Brick House Toro4 Star RatingCamshaft835/3/2016 7:39 AM
Smoked after 759 days in the humidor.
     A nice smooth tan wrapper with a firm even pack. Cap cut clean and the cigar has a fairly open draw.
    Smoke is nice and thick and burn was perfect until the final third when I had to do 2 touch ups. It had a great leather, nut, bit of a sweetness, some earth, and a small spice flavor profile. This is a great smoke that I wish I had more of.
