Pinar del Rio Exclusivo Reserva Limitada Robusto4.5 Star Ratingebernabe10/31/2014 10:34 PM
I  liked this cigar. burned evenly and did not have to relight or retouch.   a nice creamy mocha flavor was detected.  

I will definitely smoke again and recommend.
John Bull Crown Corona4 Star Ratingebernabe10/31/2014 10:27 PM
this cigar was a fairly good smoke.   smooth taste until about an inch left when it became bitter. I got a cinnamon and spicy flavor through the whole smoke.

the cigar burned evenly the entire cigar.
Partagas (Cuban) Série P No. 24 Star Rating05Venturer10/31/2014 7:52 PM
Pulled this stick from Brads 2014 Favorite Pass and am glad I did. Wow what a great smoke, by far my favorite ISOM to date. Lots of flavors from graham to nuts. The only problem I had was that the draw was pretty tight and I needed to use my Havana Saver to try to open it up, but it was still tighter than I prefer. I have found Partagas to be my favorite ISOM an this one definitely didn't disappoint, much fuller than most southern sticks.
Will definitely look for a few of these.
If it wasn't for the tight draw this would have been 4.5
Arturo Fuente Hemingway Short Story3 Star RatingWontontoIsSmoking10/31/2014 5:22 PM
I've never smoked a cigar like this. It lit easily with a nipple tip. It was a very floral cigar throughout. Light nuttiness. Medium to light bodied. Ash kept for 1.5 inches. Easy draw and a good amount of smoke. Probably wouldn't buy it again. Good cigar but not my style.
Studio Tabac (by Oliva) Nub Cafe Macchiato 4381.5 Star RatingCfickter10/31/2014 3:35 PM
I thought I might just fill up the minimum required characters for reviews by just repeating "I hate this cigar".  I am not an infused fan with the occasional exception of a morning Tabak with coffee.  This is poster child for why I don't like infused cigars
La Gloria Cubana (Cuban) Medaille D'or No. 44.5 Star RatingStogieDad10/31/2014 12:55 PM
Wonderful cigar, and I can see why these will get better.

Flawless performance despite the very small ring gauge.  Burn was razor sharp, and held ash about an inch.  Draw was a tad tight, but never caused it to heat up as I took it slow.  Pretty good amount of smoke, all in all, not to many complaints.

Nice and toasty with some honey and floral notes.  Some light creamy coffee notes enter as well, and this is just a relaxing, smooth smoke.  The flavors really popped on this one, and I can’t wait to try with some more age on them.  
Alec Bradley Family Blend VR13.5 Star RatingChadboskie10/31/2014 12:41 PM
It had a nice earthy and woodsy flavor with some cream and I tasted a little salty caramel. Although the flavor didn't come to me until about an inch and a half through. But it did taste great. The draw was a little tight and burned slightly crooked. But the flavor was that good when it started. I really would like to smoke another one of these because i think I could rate this a little higher just. If the few minor problems improved it would be a keeper
Ave Maria (Core line) Barbarossa4.5 Star RatingABoskovich10/31/2014 9:25 AM
One of the best cigars beginning to end I've had in a long. Time. Good firm construction, and on the light a gentle sweet peppery flavor. Flavor and burn were consistent from light to nub, and it never got soft.  A very nice smoke.
Pinar del Rio Small Batch Exclusive Black Corojo Double Torpedo4 Star Ratingebernabe10/31/2014 9:08 AM
This cigar burned evenly and stayed lit the entire smoke.

After lighting, I detected a sweet spicy flavor which turned to a more coffee and caramel tasting flavor.

Overall, I liked this cigar and would smoke it again.
Espinosa Maduro Toro Box Pressed1.5 Star Ratingebernabe10/30/2014 12:42 PM
This cigar to me had no flavor.  All I got was a harshness that irritated my throat and mouth.

The cigar did burn evenly and had a nice appearance.

I only was able to smoke to about the half point.
