It is practically March already but most of the country still engulfed with ice and snow. Our panel of experts is shipping you some fresh flavors of spring cigars straight from sunny Florida and the tropical islands of the Caribbean sea. The Hemingway Romeo Cigar sampler is based on early batch of latest tobaccos from the cigar lands of Arturo Fuente and The Garcia La Romana of Altadis U.S.A in Dominican Republic. With the world famous Short Story cigar and four more sticks of the best of Romeo y Julieta, the Hemingway Romeo Cigar sampler is, without a doubt, probably the best sampler at the greatest value we release this winter.

The wrapper of the Romeo y Julieta Cabinet Selección is a medium brown, rich with oils and fine veins, providing an extra kick to the creamy flavors. It is a deliciously excellent smoke with a long, smooth finish.
Romeo y Julieta 1875 Corona (5 1/2 x 44) This is the modern reincarnation of one of the most famous Cuban cigars. Originally established in 1875 by Inocencio Alvarez and Mannin Garcia, this is one of the original Cuban cigar lines. Jose “Pepin” Rodriguez Fernandez, who was the former head of the Cabañas factory in Havana, and his firm Rodríguez, Argüelles y Cia bought Romeo y Julieta in 1903. This classic cigar is always consistent and spicy to the core this slow burn treasure is crisp and creamy with hints of dark coffee and cream.

Romeo Y Julieta Reserve Maduro Corona (5 1/2 x 44) Darkly rich, the mystique of the Romeo y Julieta Reserve Maduro matches the dark romance in its tragic Shakespearean namesake. Exquisitely blended with a harmony of Dominican, Nicaraguan and Peruvian filler, with a Nicaraguan binder and an oily Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper, this medium to full-bodied smoke captures the essence and depth of the romantic tragedy, and holds a sensually aromatic taste.

Avo cigars is the brainchild of Avo Uvezian who is an acclaimed pianist who would make the cigars himself and then gave them to his friends. Avo went on to meet Henke Kelner to expand Avo’s cigar business and later on sold Avo cigars to Davidoff. Now, Avo cigars are new and improved thanks to Oettinger Davidoff AG revealing that they have revamped the branding of this prestigious cigar line. They come bursting out the gates with an updated tagline (from “Cigars in Perfect Harmony” to “Savor Every Note”) and protected price points making it much easier for customers and retailers to better understand the Avo cigar portfolio and bold, contemporary package design.
“I am delighted to share this new era of AVO Cigars with more and more aficionados around the globe. AVO cigars are ready to give the performance of a lifetime. It’s about the richness of the life you live, the friends you share it with, and the unforgettable experiences along the way. It’s about savoring every note.” says Avo Uvezian.
Since Avo cigars wants retailers and customers to better understand their portfolio, they have focused on four core lines, AVO Classic, AVO XO, AVO Domaine and AVO Heritage. AVO Classic happens to be the company’s most popular cigar to date. Fans of the Avo Signature and Avo Maduro lines will need to stock up on those cigars as much as they can because those lines will be discontinued. All current blends will remain the same. The packaging for the cigars now include a superb, modern wooden box design featuring the AVO logo on the lid of the box, complimented with music bars featuring musical notes from Avo Uvezian’s songs.
“The brand needed to be freshened up in terms of offerings, packaging and communication,” said Richard Krutick, director of marketing for Davidoff of Geneva. “The refresh is an evolution of the brand, not a revolution. It’s about staying true to Avo’s core, but also modernizing it for today’s consumer.”
Avo cigars will be celebrating Avo Uvezian’s 89th birthday in 2015.
“Avo Uvezian is a man of the world who savors every note to the fullest. He cherishes every moment in life with passion and shows insatiable thirst for connections with people from all walks of life. AVO Cigars enables rich and rewarding social sharing experiences: helping drive connections amongst aficionados and turning strangers into friends in a heartbeat.” says Charles Awad, Senior Vice President Global Marketing and Innovation.
The idea behind Avo cigar’s “Savor Every Note” tagline is that cigars involve more than just the taste and experience, it’s all about the lifestyle, enjoying life, and living by your own beat and sharing it with your friends.

Cigars were always (and still are) a part of the Oval Office. United States Presidents throughout our history have enjoyed a great cigar while they made executive decisions and run our great country. The Presidents’ Day Cigar Sampler is Mike’s Cigars way of commemorating all those great men with a cigar sampler. Starting with Aging Room Mezzo, the Alec Bradley Mundial, Rocky Patel Edge, a Gurkha Intruder and ending with a Cuba Aliados Torpedo. Long ashes to all.
Aging Room M356 Mezzo (6 x 54) The Aging Room cigars are made by Oliveros’ Rafael Nodal in small batches and sold only to select merchants. They are of 100% Dominican tobacco, handmade with leaves that were personally selected by Jose Blanco from the best of the crops. They are aged extra long periods until the ingredients been “married” perfectly before they are distributed to stores. Cigar Insider rated the Aging Room a respected “94”. The Aging Room cigar is creamy and smooth despite being a full body. It brings flavors of slightly roasted almonds with cedar and spice.
Alec Bradley Mundial PL6 (6 x 54) – Once you have a box of Alec Bradley Mundial cigars, you’ll notice the wonderful artwork on the label wrapped around the cigar. Its multi tonal and eye catching colors go well with the color of the cigar itself. The second label has the cigars name on it. The cigar shape is called “Punta Lanza” which translates to “point of the lance”. This is a nod to an old mentor of Alan Rubin, the owner of Alec Bradley cigars. The cigar once unwrapped has a chocolate colored hue with minimal veins and a bit of an oily skin. Smells of hay and even barnyard come through right away during the pre light and even some earthy tones.
Rocky Patel Edge Torpedo (6 x 52) This popular Toro from Rocky Patel includes a wrapper that is dark, with just a touch of red, and very oily. It’s both smooth looking and smooth to the touch with a sweet cocoa raisin flavor. A smoke to be enjoyed for hours.
Gurkha Intruder Toro (6 1/2 x 56) The Gurkha Intruder is a great powerhouse cigar made by hand by Gurkha with all Nicaraguan tobacco ingredients. The silky textured wrapper is a rare long leaf Corojo providing this smoke with peppery flavorful taste that combines with the smooth, creamy flavors that are created when the combustion hits the complex filler blend. All in all the Gurkha Intruder makes for a full and satisfying smoking experience for all cigar lovers.
Cuba Aliados Torpedo (6 x 60) Originally from Havana, Cuba Aliados are now handrolled in Danli, Honduras by highly skilled craftsmen, personally trained by Don Ronaldo to create the line’s demanding shapes. This medium to full bodied smoke features a well-balanced blend of Dominican long-fillers, Nicaraguan binder, and your choice of oily Nicaraguan Corojo natural or Maduro wrappers.

Nothing like a good smoke after a long day of work, and theres nothing we love more than a good stogie. Today we have a modest review of EP Carrillo’s La Historia. We opted for El Senador, the robusto size of the line. It turned out to be a surprisingly delicious cigar. The wrapper is a Mexican San Andreas, the binder is Ecuadorian Sumatra and the filler is Dominican and Nicaraguan.
Smelling this cigar was almost as good as smoking it. The chocolatey and peppery notes really translate through the smell, and if the smell alone wasn’t enough to entice you…
Cold Draw – Sweetness, nuts, cocoa and dark chocolate come through beautifully.
First Third – Right off the bat, the most dominant notes are cocoa and chocolate followed by hints of creamy, smooth smoke. Earthy and leathery notes make an appearance in the background and really round out the flavor palette. Even construction all around, great so far.
Second Third - Dark flavors coming in at this point – chocolate notes still going strong- with a hint of oak that really dances on your palette. There is a sweetness that comes in past the oak, reminiscent of wheat and honey… Delicate yet dominant, all at once.
Final - At this point the dark and sweet flavors are really melting together, mixing themselves up in one smooth and creamy finish. Construction wise, the burn became just a touch uneven, but with a quick re-light the problem was solved. Surprisingly the cigar did not become too hot to hold towards the end. Definitely enjoying the very last taste of mild dark chocolate and leathery notes.
Overall, great medium-full bodied cigar. A lot of cigars now are jumping on the San Andreas wrapper bandwagon and this is one of the more successful ones. Tasty all the way. Great after taste of cocoa and earthy notes. This stick got us about an hour and 15 minutes of delicious smoking time. We loved this as a night time smoke, after a good meal. Its a good stogie to unwind with. La Historia is definitely worthy of our humidor, and yours.
If you like cigars, chocolate and whiskey, you definitely don’t want to miss out on our upcoming event with Royal Gold Cigars.

You know what we love more than cigars? NEW cigars. So there was no way we were going to pass up a chance to light up a new Camacho Double Shock Limited Edition. It had us drooling on looks alone, you really cant deny that barber shop pole look. Check out our thoughts on this enticing new smoke.
Made By: Camacho
Country: Dominican Republic
Wrapper: Ecuador, Mexico
Filler: Dominican Republic, Honduras
Strength: Medium to Full
Ring Gauge: 50
At first glance, this cigar is stunning. The Ecuadorian habano and Mexican San Andres maduro wrappers make for an aesthetic that we found visually pleasing. Upon further inspection, we weren’t disappointed. There’s a nutty, earthy and slightly toasty smell. Its a well constructed cigar, no obvious veins, firm but not too tight. Cold draw was smooth and effortless.
Right on the first draw you get a hit of that creamy, toasty flavor. Going into the first half, there’s lots of cloudy smoke and it feels peppery on the tongue. Its spicy and bold and there’s an even burn so far. Primary flavors are nutty and toasty, overall delicious on the palate.
Coming into the second half, the burn became a tad bit uneven, but it held together wonderfully and the smoke and flavor didn’t lose its power. The primary flavors are still coming through, that creaminess still making an appearance. Smoke is thick and abundant. By this point, we’re definitely enjoying this smoke. Its mild, but still very bold.
By this point, it mellows out a bit. Smooth yet tangy with an almost citrus kick. Quite surprising. This smoke is still going strong, and we are not disappointed with the punch of flavor it provides. Towards the end of our smoking session, the cigar became a bit warm and soft, but it did not impact the flavor profile.
As usual, Camacho didn’t disappoint. We definitely recommend this cigar if you’re looking for a consistent, flavorful smoke. From the packaging down to the ash, this was an all around winner in our books.
Flor de Gonzalez has been consistently rated by Cigar Aficionado among some of the best cigars in the world.
