Cigar Review – Fonseca- Deliciousos   Leave a comment

Shape: Standard
Ring Gauge: 40
Length: 4 7/8″
Presentation: box is double stacked with each wrapped in white material between band and cigar. I’m sure there is a good reason to do this. Of course I don’t know what that reasoning is at this time.I recently purchased my second set of these habanos. These are hand made, tobacco is from the famous Vuelta Abajo Region; in the Pinar del Río Province of Cuba. Upon first puff this is a medium light cigar that burns well. The first and second third are similar to me. Not overwhelming but a great truly cuban smoke. For a small cuban this is a good cigar. I usually have a port or worst case a cold beer to go along with it. My preference is the good port but I dont mind a good cold beer with it as well. The main reason I re-ordered this cigar is that it is not a high maintenance, worrisome, gotta keep it lit. It has a smooth even burn all the way thru. The last thirds does not get harsh. Hints of leather, very light chocolate, earthy. This second purchase was two boxes of 25. Very nice. Cheers.

Cigar Review – Romeo y Julieta – Wide Churchills   Leave a comment

image:RyJ_WideChuchills.jpg

Shape: Montesco
Ring Gauge: 55
Diameter: 21,83 mm
Length: 130 mm

My review: This presentation was ordered and arrived in a  box of 10. Wide indeed! My son and enjoyed the first 2 of these on the deck of the house, small glass of poepke port for me.

The burn was uneven in the 1st third. That is the worst thing I have to say about this cigar.  The first and second third was lightly spicy, chocolately, smooth but it seemed to be burning hottier than usual. I truly enjoyed the cigar, the size and flavor. I am sure I will go after another box in the near future. Great buy and seems to be a great value.

Cigar Review – Vegas Robiana – Unicos   Leave a comment

Vegas Robaina Cigars Origin: Cuba Manufactured: Hand Made
Gauge: Thick Length: 156
Format: Piramide Ring: 52
Weight: 14,26 gr. Score: 8.3
Presentation: 2 Layers in a Box of 25

My review of the Unicos: Very nice well constructed pyramid style habanos. 1st third was very smooth and smokable. Nice gauge and length. Even burn. Hints of leather, earthiness, and refined cocoa. 2nd third was more even smoking that allow a longer pull and enjoyment. The richness of the cigar was able to present itself at this point. The last third was unremarkable, at this point, hard to improve on a perfect cigar. This is my first Rabaino and will look for more. I purchased this in a small box of 10 cigars and regret that i did not get the 25 box with the markings. Next time.
