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!

Te-Amo New York Torito Extra2.5 Star RatingHot Stuff x4/16/2014 6:07 PM
Not a horrible cigar, but has kind of a cheap feel and taste.  Looks like it was rolled from a grocery sack. Flavor is kind of plain and non-descript, but it did hold together and the burn line was straight.  Actually, I was expecting it to be worse than it was. Okay as a lawnmower smoke.
La Gloria Cubana Serie N JSB4 Star RatingHot Stuff x4/16/2014 6:02 PM
So I've had a couple of these now, this latest one had three years' rest.  The pre-light aroma is strong and pleasant, earthy and rich.  This cigar was rolled well, and had a dark and oily wrapper. It burned well and had an excellent draw, but did require a relight in the final third. Great smoke production. Good maduro-like flavors, dominated by leather notes. Good cigar, but I still like the LaGC Serie R better.
RoMa Craft Tobac Aquitaine Mandible4 Star Ratinglubrix4/16/2014 3:10 PM
A solid feel to this stick.An oily sheen on the seamless wrapper with a couple of veins.The firsts were tastes of leather,earth and pepper.About a half inch down bran joins in and carried on.The mid's were leather,wood and spice with hints of floral and vanilla.The last quarter was wood,cardamom and spice to the finish.Nice rich and full flavors with complexity.The draw was great,the burn needed two minor touch-ups and the ash held strongly.Medium-full in body.
Pinar del Rio Small Batch Reserve Habano Robusto4 Star RatingStogieDad4/16/2014 11:01 AM
Now I know why Nirab likes these so much!

A fine looking little stick, cubanesque right down to the band.  Just a bit of give when pinched.  Performance wise, no problems to report.  The burn line was a tad wavy, required one slight touch-up early but never got out of hand again.  Smoke was thick, and the draw was spot on.  The ash was a bit flaky, but didn't present much problem.

Creamy and smooth throughout, with a spiciness that kind of snuck up on me through some sweetness.  Lots of woodiness in there as well.  There are some definite floral notes in the beginning that went away altogether fairly quickly.  Finished out with some nice clean tobacco notes, and left me very satisfied.

I pulled this one from a pass, and now I have a couple more.  Good thing, tasty smokes!
Don Lino Robusto4.5 Star Ratingyoungp4/16/2014 10:04 AM
HOLTS Cigars. Excellent cigar. So far I haven't met a Don Lino I don't like! Non-gourmet review: it stays lit while I work! It has a Mild mouth flavor. About the most even ash I have ever seen, and taps off PERFECTLY cleanly. Bountiful smoke. Tip smoke is mellow, but robust. A wonderful smoke while I sit at my multiple monitors! ! Can't beat it at $2.50 in a 6-pack.
Drew Estate My Uzi Weighs a Ton (MUWAT) KFC "Just A Friend"3 Star RatingBewareDaPenguin4/16/2014 5:22 AM
Ok although I did not like this cigar, I can see how some might think it's good. It has a unique taste, and mesquite comes to mind. It smells like a BBQ fire. I didn't find the flavors enjoyable much at all, and actually put it out about 1/2 thru. The cigar was well constructed in a brown toothy wrapper. Burn was very good as was smoke production. I just didn't like the flavor it gave off, or the after taste that lingered. Im trying to be fair and give it a 3-star because I can see how you could really like this cigar or not. While the flavors weren't for me, it was a well rolled cigar.
Aging Room (by Oliveros) M356 Rondo3.5 Star RatingCamshaft834/15/2014 7:00 PM
Great looking cigar with no visible flaws. Pepper dominates the 1st third and leaves my mouth parched. 2nd third shows hints of leather, wood, and a little bit of pepper on the finish. The flavors are very deep and can be felt clear down into my chest. Last 3rd the pepper picks back up but is not overwhelming. It is accompanied by the leather and wood with a slight nuttiness. Burn is near perfect and smoke output is better then average and pretty smooth. Not a bad stick.
Guerra Habano Perfecto4 Star Rating05Venturer4/15/2014 6:11 PM
Picked up a box of these at a great price and smoked one ROTT when they arrived at the house. Wishing I would have ordered a few more boxes. This is a great medium body smoke with a razor straight burn. Plenty of creamy smoke. I can see this becoming a go to smoke. A touch of cedar, not super complex just a darn good stick.
Nica Libre Double Perfecto2.5 Star Ratingbmac77544/15/2014 4:05 PM
Large cannon with a small foot, very dark oily wrapper, smells of barnyard big time.

This cigar was very plain as far as flavors are concerned.  I really got nothing except a woodsy, grass flavor that was boring.  This cigar does give off a huge amount of smoke, but it was tossed about 2/3 into it, just wasn't doing it for me.

Got to score it a low rating, only thing I really liked was the overall look of the cigar, flavor was just way to lacking.
Gurkha Seduction Robusto3.5 Star Ratingnirab4/15/2014 1:35 PM
Reviewing a Gurkha is like...ok, I gotta be nice this time. A Gurkha that I actually! A nice looking stick, with a deep, golden brown color. Still has the ugly looking Gurkha band, but I shouldn't nit pick...but I am! V cut, and first flavors are a touch of cedar, a bit of spice, and a blast of pepper, very nice start. About an inch in, and the pepper dies down, but is still present, and I get a nice mix of coffee, cedar, cinammon, and pepper. The cinammon does not hang around long, and the last third has the tobacco flavor ramping up, mixing with the coffee and pepper. Ash and draw were great, but I did have to touch it up about 5 times...but hey, it's a Gurkha, so it's to be expected. Overall, not a bad cigar...I think my heart just stopped...I feel like Fred Sanford... Wheezy! Wheezy, it's the big one!!
