Tatuaje Exclusive Series TAA 20145 Star RatingChrisrondo12/20/2014 3:16 PM
Amazing smoke but will be better with age medium to full in body notes of pepper and cocoa  Even burn nice kick in the beginning but mellow out in last third very smooth and lots of smoke.
La Gloria Cubana Artesanos Retro Especialé Club5 Star RatingChadboskie12/20/2014 12:49 PM
This was a very interesting cigar. The flavor was very complex. It definitely changed a couple times. Each change was great. It was spicy, earthy, creamy. It got stronger in flavor as the cigar burned down. Wasn't like most Connecticuts. The construction was flawless. Beautiful cigar. I will be on the lookout for more of these.
Rafael Gonzalez Double Corona3 Star Ratingd33rock12/20/2014 7:52 AM
This was took a good 90 minutes to finish this stick. I was oudoors on a 35 degree night with a hot cocoa & honey as a beverage.

The stick was 7+ inches in length. It had a nce Connecticut wrapper that was smooth and only a minor vein visible. Prelight smell was woody/grassy and it lit easily.

It was consistent from start to finish in the flavor department. A combination of toasty, nutty, wood and hay. A very enjoyable smoke, but I am not rushing to buy another one, though I would grab one if I saw it at a B&M.
Aging Room Quattro F55 Concerto5 Star Ratingdanielpollard12/20/2014 6:47 AM
This is a very elegant cigar. Throughout the smoke the flavor was mild spice, cedar, and nuttiness. Slightly sweet. Burn was excellent and even the entire time. Lots of nice gray smoke. Will be buying again.
Baccarat The Game Belicoso3.5 Star Ratingheadfirst12/19/2014 9:10 PM
I really enjoyed this one, maybe because my expectations were low, and maybe because it's been cello-less in my humidor for 8 monhts.  It has a sweetened cap but it's not just to mask a flavorless cigar, it actually complements the creamy cedary taste very well.  A Fat Tire went very well with this.  Draw was perfect and the smoke output was fantastic.  There was a slight harshness near the nub but it was manageable.  That's one I'd have again.
5 Vegas Gold Series Double Nickel3.5 Star Ratingheadfirst12/19/2014 9:02 PM
Cigar had a good aroma and good flavor in the 1st third.  Draw was perfect, burned fine, and nice smoke output.  The only problem I had was battling harshness on the final half.  I took it to a little under 2" left and got tired of fighting the bitterness so I gave up on the nub.  Mark Twains are better...
Partagas Benji Homage 62 Robusto Gordo4.5 Star Ratinglubrix12/19/2014 7:12 PM
A solid feel to this stick.An oily sheen on the seamless and vein less wrapper.The firsts were tastes of spice,leather,cashews and cardamom.The mid's were cream,malt,leather and spice.The last quarter was coffee,leather,berries and spice to the finish.Very nice rich and full flavors with complexity.The draw was great,the burn was dead on and the ash held strongly.Medium in body.
Padron Family Reserve No. 50 Maduro5 Star RatingTee12/19/2014 5:17 PM
Balanced and complex with flavors alternating between cocoa, nuts, and cream.  The construction, draw and ash go without saying:  perfect.
Only wish Cigar Geeks would add the Padron Family Reseve No. 50 Natural to their database.
Varina Farms Breakfast Blend Toro4 Star Ratingheadfirst12/18/2014 9:29 PM
This was an enjoyable cigar.  Aroma was nice, but I wasn't getting the baked bread flavors described on CI.  The draw was just a little on the tight side.  I took this down to an inch and it was enjoyable all the way.  A good mild cigar, not stupendous, but good.
Varina Farms Winter Warmer Limited Edition Belicoso4.5 Star Ratingheadfirst12/18/2014 9:26 PM
The aroma was very nice on this cigar, and it was very smooth.  I took it to about 1.5 inches and there was no harshness at all.  The flavor on the palette was very neutral, not even a hint of pepper.  The pigtail cap was nice, just peel and light, no need to cut or punch, the draw was great as is.  It did not seem like a medium-full as CI describes, I'd say medium in body.
