Alec Bradley Select Cabinet Reserve Robusto July 2009 87
CG Rating

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Eddie Naughton (BlackIrish)
Alec Bradley has been putting out some good smokes lately. I've seen this cigar described as a "tempered down Tempus" and that seems accurate to me. I've liked the Tempus a good bit, and this SCR is... Read More

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: (SenorPablo)
This is a cigar definitely worth trying. It clearly had a level of quality above your average cigar. The complexity of the flavors throughout the smoke are what really grabbed my attention. It's ni... Read More

Over all I realy enjoyed this good smoke, but you have to be patient. The first few puffs are god-aweful, but it dose get much better quickly. This stick is more medium than medium- full but its still... Read More

This is an excellent smoke. What I liked the most about this cigar is that it changed up on me constantly and I was getting different flavors and nuances throughout the entire process. I really enjoye... Read More
Bad Dog Robusto (sweet tip) July 2009 76

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Duker511 (Duker511)
This cigar looked better than it tasted. It tastes a bit chaeap and never really developed into anything much more than an average kick around cigar. I suppose with some age the green taste might impr... Read More
Bad Dog Robusto (sweet tip) July 2009 80
CG Rating

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Eddie Naughton (BlackIrish)
Apart from the unique Rhodesian wrapper, this cigar doesn't really stand out from the large crowed of decently made cigars that deliver static and unexceptional flavors. I'm glad I smoked it, and as ... Read More

I really did enjoy this cigar and plan on buying some in the future it was a change of pace that I enjoyed alot. It seems as if I've been smoking fastballs one right after the other recently and altho... Read More
Pinar del Rio Habano Sun Grown Robusto (original blend) June 2009 90

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: (SenorPablo)
This is exactly the kind of cigar I would hope to find in an exercise like this. Something I have not had the pleasure of enjoying in the past. Something with a great price. And something that was ... Read More
Pinar del Rio Habano Sun Grown Robusto (original blend) June 2009 89
CG Rating

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Eddie Naughton (BlackIrish)
A rich, flavorful medium-full robusto. The warm spice is balanced wtih leather, wood, cream, and some sweetness, making the smoke very satisfying. Plan to smoke this one to the nub, and keep some in... Read More

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Peter (junglepete)
Overall a very good smoke with some decent complexity and from what I've heard, it also comes with a reasonable price tag. This is one that I would definitely keep in the inventory. Thanks for the cig... Read More
Pinar del Rio Habano Sun Grown Robusto (original blend) June 2009 81

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Rich Fry (lowpro75)
This cigar would have rated a lot higher if not for the bitterness and the tar. The first half of this cigar was thoroughly enjoyable. Unfortunately the second half was marred by bitterness and a ti... Read More

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Tim Podwika (podman28)
The cigar is well-made, tasty and very enjoyable. Above all that it is a tremendous value for what you get in the cigar. You should be able to find this cigar in a B&M for under $6 but tastes and perf... Read More
Padron 1964 Anniversary Exclusivo Maduro June 2009 86
CG Rating

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Mike (mhuss)
I previously enjoyed a Padron 1964 a while back in their Corona size. But I seemed to enjoy that offering much more than this one. This cigar had some really nice features, like the construction and... Read More
Padron 1964 Anniversary Exclusivo Maduro June 2009 91
CG Rating

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: David Fine (stogie_foggie)
Overall, this was an excellent cigar. The Padron line as a whole is always consistent and flavorful and the '64 Anniversary does not disappoint. While not quite the cigar as it's '26 cousin, this on... Read More

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Brian Aebi (smoke 1)
I absolutley love the 1964 series, and usually get them in the natural wrapper, which is why I did not rate this as high as others. All in all though a definite must try. Thanks again Paul absolutel... Read More

This is a wonderful cigar. Padron has certainly kept their reputation in tact with this quality smoke. There are enough subtle flavors here to keep even the most sophisticated herfer interested. Altho... Read More

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Alfred Ponce (nukbucko)
The Padron 1964 Exclusivo Maduro is one fine cigar. If I can sum up the flavors in one word it would be WOW! This is one of those smokes you want to smoke with a good friend, Father, son, or just grea... Read More
Alacranes Habano 2000 Robusto May 2009 91

Alacranes has a winner here, in a delectable, beautifully made robusto. Medium in body but full of interesting flavors, with just enough spice to keep your attention. This cigar will be a staple in ... Read More
Alacranes Habano 2000 Robusto May 2009 87
CG Rating

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Tim Podwika (podman28)
This is a very good light cigar. Great for a morning or early afternoon smoke. This was not the first smoke of this cigar for me nor will it be the last. I wish it had a bit more punch but it has a ti... Read More
Alacranes Habano 2000 Robusto May 2009 79
CG Rating

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Mark Lax (markinde)
All in all I enjoyed this cigar. It was my first Alacranes, so I didn't know what to expect from it. It was more of a mild-medium, and I tend to prefer more medium to full bodied cigars generally but ... Read More

I reviewed this Alacranes robusto H2000 back in September of last year. Since then, I was fortunate enough to sample other offerings of this brand. And I loved each of them. Then when Paul came cal... Read More

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Peter (junglepete)
I think Peter has a real winning blend here. Having smoked both wrappers in a variety of sizes and liking them both, I find the flavor and construction quite consistent. Based on the price of $5.50 -$... Read More
Isabela Miami Torpedo April 2009 82
CG Rating

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Eddie Naughton (BlackIrish)
A well-built mild cigar with some flavor, but one that isn't sure what it wants to be. The sweetened tip and knock-off band make me think that it's aimed at new smokers and poseurs, but the materials... Read More

Because I really liked the way this cigar felt and smoked, I found myself wanting to give it a higher score, but I was truly disappointed with the bitterness and therfore could not. Nonetheless, I eas... Read More

It was very hard for me to get past the sugar coated head. The sugar seemed to linger way too much and distracted me from the cigar itself. I understand the wish to throwback to the pre-Castro era, bu... Read More

Total 75 points. This cigar might be just right for another herfer, but it's not my cup of tea. I would never buy it. I will only smoke other sizes to review them, and only because I am getting them ... Read More

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Hot Stuff x (Hot Stuff x)
This is a very high quality, full-bodied cigar. Although very good, I would love to have some of these to place in the humi and give them a year or two of rest. I am admittedly a bit of a lightweight... Read More

In general I found this cigar to be enjoyable. I think it could have ranked a bit higher if it didn't have the sugary sweet cap that lasted nearly half-way through the smoke. This had very little ag... Read More

I'd enjoyed some regular LADCs and knew that CA had given very high marks to the Edicion Especial robusto, so I was looking forward to this smoke. Overall, I was a bit disappointed. I expected grade... Read More

I really didn’t have a clue as to what to expect from this cigar as it is the first La Aroma de Cuba I’ve ever smoked. I’m a Nicaraguan tobacco fan so the slight sweetness was a real hit for me... Read More

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Bob Cordell (Bob Cordell)
This cigar is a radical departure from the cigars that usually dwell in my humidors. The natural wrapper isnt at all like the Montes, CAO's or Romeo's that I usually stock in the lighter shades. It tr... Read More

This is a cigar made for Ashton by Pepin Garcia. It deems a wrapper grown by the Oliva Tobacco Company and filler grown from Cuban seed. Now there is a combination that can't help but produce somethin... Read More

I was really looking forward to this cigar because I am a fan of the regular Aroma De Cuba line. In the end I feel this cigar never quite reached its full potential. I feel that I know what the ciga... Read More

Transition in a cigar is normally a good thing, and is a telltale sign of a good cigar. I can't credit this cigar with that kind of accolade. The cigar transitioned from very poor, to tolerable, to f... Read More

Overall this was a pretty good smoke. It lasted 1:20. The off and on bitterness realy hurt this one. The complexity was there, but not in abundance. I think that this cigar could have tasted better, b... Read More

I don't feel good posting this review in that I don't think the brand got a fair shake due to the tight roll and poor draw on this one stick. Unless the other reviews have the same issues, then I supp... Read More

Arturo Fuente Hemingway Classic Maduro February 2009 87

The Hemingway Classic maduro is a tasty and delicious cigar. But it seemed to have lacked that extra punch of aroma and flavor, therefore putting it among the cigars that are ever-so-slightly above a... Read More

All in all a great smoke that lasted the better part of 2 hours. I enjoyed it very much, but expected the flavors to be a little more on the robust side than the naturals. The level of complexity was ... Read More

This cigar was a classic, as its name implied. All the flavours one might expect from a maduro were there. Chocolate, earth, barnyard, and light hints of pepper. The cigar finished as strong as it sta... Read More

Overall, this cigar had a smooth, earthy taste that I enjoyed over the usual spicy cameroon wrapper of the AF Hemingways. The combination of the milder blend and maduro wrapper made for a rich taste,... Read More
