EP Carrillo La Historia El Senador Review


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.

Camacho Double Shock Limited Edition – Toro Review

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
Binder: Criollo
Filler: Dominican Republic, Honduras
Strength: Medium to Full
Ring Gauge: 50
Length: 6

First Impression:

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.


First Half:

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.


Second Half:

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.


Third Half:

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.

La Flor Dominicana Ligero Cabinet Oscuro Review

la-flor-dominicana-oscuro-holdingIt’s time for a cigar review and I’m excited to be reviewing La Flor Dominicana Ligero Cabinet Oscuro. Athough it’s not new, I’ve been contemplating smoking this cigar for a while now. I’ve been keeping my eye on this cigar and it’s about that time to sit back, get a drink, and let the aroma serenade around me. This cigar is a L- 500 Cabinet coming in at 60 x 5 3/4. They also have other size such as 400 Cabinet, 300 Cabinet, 250 Cabinet, 200 Cabinet, and Torpedito. Now, let’s light this baby up and see what it’s made of!

After lighting this bad boy up, which is Oscuro, not Maduro, I notice it has a great structure to it. Beautiful, shiny, rich Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, and nice Dominican binder and fillers from their own farm in La Canela, Dominican Republic. It has a very oily wrapper with excellent texture to it and the veins have a slight embossed to it. You can immediately sense that it’s a full body cigar yet it’s rich and so far, enjoyable in its first few puffs. Looking at this 500 Cabinet, you would think it would feel heavy because it’s dense but it feels cozy holding it. Once I fired it up, there is a rich aroma of leather with slight hints of pepper that is gratifying. So far, I’ve been smoking the cigar for 15 minutes.


Now, I’ve been smoking the La Flor Dominicana Oscuro for a little over 45 minutes and I’m still enjoying the rich body taste which I’ve steadily tasted an increase elements of leather and earthy flavors. A nice progression of creamy scent has slowly developed like a drummer slowly crescendoing his cymbals to compliment the guitar and bass during the bridge section of a song. The construction of the cigar has been superb with a steady smoke of what I would call, intensively rich and it has mellowed a little bit. I would suggest to eat a nice size meal before smoking a Ligero Cabinet Oscuro.

After an hour and fifteen minutes of smoking The Oscuro, it has come to an end my friend. Overall, the La Flor Dominicana Cabinet Oscuro is an outstanding cigar that is just a step under a full-bodied cigar with great consistency of rich, earthy, and spicy smoke. Each puff generated a bundle of smoke that I enjoyed. The burn was very consistent except for 1 time I had to rotate the cigar, otherwise I had no serious issue with it. I would recommend this cigar for anyone to experience after enjoying a nice lunch or dinner. Now kick back and enjoy an impressive rich cigar with a favorable price point.

Swag South Beach Edition VIP is a true Dominican Puro with some nice Dominican Ligero in mixed in the blend. This vitola is a smaller 4.5×48 Rothschild size for a quick smoke. Its wrapper is rich and caramelly and the flavor profile is of sweet spice, nut, and peppery citrus notes. This is a handy full-bodied cigar with pop to it with a fantastic presentation.

Swag says this is not your father’s Dominican Cigar….this is a new kind of Dominican smoke with the aroma, flavor and combustion that Dominican tobaccos are known for but with strength, complexity and character that until now has been found only in Nicaraguan tobaccos.

Swag’s Quickie is one of the best bargain cigars of 2011. At 5.5 inches plus a 52 ring, Swag Quickie cigars are a new kind of Dominican cigar.

Aging Room M356 Presto is a nice and neat 4.5×48 in size. 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.

Aging Room Quattro F55 Stretto cigars are box pressed small-batch cigars sporting an obscure Sumatra wrapper aged nine years. This vitola is the smaller of the Quattro collection. Expect full-bodied robust flavors orchestrated by this particular wrapper. Here is a rich and meaty smoke with earthy notes, some pepper, cream and a sweet caramel finish worthy of an ovation.

Licenciados Toro

Today’s review is the Licenciados in a toro 6×50 ring gauge. This is a great cigar at a bargain price. It’s handcrafted by Manual Quesada in his MATASA factory in the Dominican Republic. If you’re a lover of Macanudo cigars, you’ll probably enjoy the Licenciados. I’m smoking the connecticut shade wrapper  and by the looks it would be considered a higher quality wrapper. The appearance is great. It has some veining, but overall a nice looking cigar.

As I lit up, I couldn’t help but notice several nice nutty notes right off the bat. That was something I wasn’t expecting, because most of the time you will get a bitter tone on less expensive cigars. Not this one! In fact, Manual Quesada blended this cigar to taste like a Macanudo. He kicked things up a notch by adding some rich flavors that we will get into shortly.

There is a nice smoky aroma that is hard to place, but it’s something close to a mixture of cream and spice. It flows effortlessly with every puff of the cigar. You will notice a nice flaky ash along with big beautiful wasps of smoke. As you get about fifteen minutes or so into the cigar, you’ll taste milk and light coffee tones. The burn has been spot on and the draw is right in my range of above average to excellent. If you really dig deep, you will notice some very light spice undertones, another pleasant surprise that I wasn’t expecting.


As you hit the midway point, the spice notes found earlier begin to pick up. Rich creamy undertones of milk are also evident. At this stage I would classify this as a mild to medium body cigar. On the back half of the cigar, expect the nutty tones to pick up along with the coffee. The milk and spice tones remain pretty consistent to finish out the cigar.

While not an overly complex cigar, it is a very enjoyable smoke. Rich and consistent are two words that come to mind. If you love connecticuts or are a fan of Macanudos then I would highly recommend the Licenciados. Oh, and I should mention it received a 93 in Cigar Aficionado. The price starts around $3.00 per stick. For me, I’ve personally added this as one of my everyday cigars.

Bauza – Casa Grandes

A true gem of a cigar, the Bauza is sure to meet all of your expectations. They are made in the Dominican Republic and were originally released in 1980. They have stood the test of time. It is not only an excellent cigar, but they are made in the prestigious Fuente Factory. That should tell you all you need to know about this cigar. The Fuente Factory is known for making some of the highest quality cigars and the Buaza is no exception.

I’ve chosen to smoke the Casa Grande size for this review; it is a 6.75”x48 ring gauge. However, it’s available in eight different sizes to fit your preferred choice of ring gauge. It’s semi dark Sun Grown Ecuadorian wrapper looks fantastic. You will notice some small veining, but nothing that takes away from the look of the cigar. An oily sheen along with a triple cap completes the presentation.

Right away, you will notice hay like notes as you toast the end of the cigar and begin smoking the first inch or so. After you get past the initial start of the cigar, the hay starts to subside and cedar and spice tones begin taking over. Ten minutes in and the burn has be spot on. The draw on the cigar is one of the best that I’ve had in a long time. It requires just enough effort to keep it interesting.

A third of the way in, I’ve begun to get a touch of plum like notes that lasted for several minutes. It quickly disappears and the cedar and spice tones are back in full force. The burn to this point has been impeccable. I wanted to test the cigar further and decided to set it down for five minutes to see how it would do. To my surprise, when I returned the cigar remained lit and I didn’t have to touch it up.

Two thirds of the way in now and hints of coffee, nutmeg and nuts are all evident. Smooth creamy notes can also be found. As mentioned prior, the burn and draw have remained consistent with no issues so far. In the final third of the cigar, everything begins culminating and you will get hints of all the flavors and notes mentioned throughout the cigar. I tasted a nice cedar like aftertaste on my palette that enhanced the smoking experience.

The Buaza is an overall winner for sure. It has received a 92 rating from Cigar Aficionado. Also, it’s one of Carlos Fuente Sr.’s favorite cigars and can be found sitting on his table in his office. I would recommend that you go buy a few and try it out for yourself. You will not be disappointed.

Perfecto Padrón

PadronYou'll remember a Padrón Padrón Cigars Miami

When you remember life’s important moments, you’ll remember a Padrón, it is said.

A good place to start is the Padrón Original Series, or the thousand series, as it is sometimes called. With 15 vitolas in both natural or maduro, perhaps the best way to begin is to get acquainted with the Padron 8 Cigar Sampler. Here you can try a couple from each of three Padron cigar collections, in both natural or their rich maduro.

Michael Jordan’s Cigar Smoking Paradise

Million Dollar Humidor Michael Jordan’s 12.4 million dollar live-in humidor.

TMZ – Jupiter, FL – Consider the world record for “largest humidor ever” broken — Michael Jordan’s $12.4 MILLION Jupiter, FL palace is juuust about ready to move in to … and it features an insane cigar-friendly home theater.

His Airness — rarely seen these days without a tightly-rolled Cuban between his teeth — has been building the 28,000 square foot estate for the past three years, complete with a giant state-of-the-art home theater … outfitted with special equipment made to handle mass amounts of cigar smoke.

The 3-acre, 11-bedroom compound is being built in the middle of an ultra-exclusive golf course community called the Jack Nicklaus’ Bear Club … where Tiger Woods also lives.

It’s unclear where Jordan plans to display his 5 MVP trophies and 6 NBA Championship rings … but between the main house, the pool house, the guest house, and the 2-story guard house … he’s got plenty of choices.

FYI — There’s also a ridiculous athletic facility … complete with b-ball court, naturally.

The Highly Favored Rocky Patel Fifteenth Anniversary Robusto

RP Fifteenth Anniversary Rocusto Cigars Box of 25

As for the Rocky Patel 15th Anniversary Robusto, those in the industry are calling the Rocky Patel Fifteenth Anniversary their favorite RP blend, and reviewers are saying it is different from your standard Rocky Patel cigar, with more spice and richness not unlike the smoking characteristics of a great Nicaraguan Puro. Perhaps most noted is the complex flavor the 15th Anniversary tobacco blend delivers. Attractive construction lends the Robusto a certain elegance, and the definite sweetness of dried fruit or black cherry and floral are particularly noted, as well its velvety Jalapa wrapper, voluminous smoke output and sturdy ash. The cigar band and cigar box have that commemorative Americana appeal like minted money and ornate engravings, letting the cigar smoker know this is a special release. Pleasant and never overpowering, a spicy start and enjoyable ending of flora, wood and mocha are the stars here, and another reason the Rocky Patel 15th Anniversary Robusto just received a 92 point rating.
