Flores y Rodriguez (by PDR) Cabinet Seleccion (Tamboril) Magicos Capa Maduro3.5 Star RatingItalianGuido10/24/2014 10:28 PM
Wood, earth, and straw to start. A cocoa finish comes in a little later. There is some sweet spices that keep toying with me: maybe nutmeg or allspice. I keep thinking about thanksgiving desserts when I smoke this. It takes some time to get going, but the payoff of flavor is in the second half.
Construction is tight but has some soft spots along the canon. Smoke output is decent. It needed a few touch ups and a relight. I ended up smoking it faster than I wanted just to keep it lit. Some more humi time should help that. Overall, it's an above average smoke.
Flatbed Cigar Co. Panacea Kentucky Fire Cured 5604 Star Ratingbmac775410/24/2014 5:24 PM
This has an old rustic look with small veins, and a very dry rough wrapper.  It has a large cannon and when the cap was sliced, I was amazed how easy the draw was.  The pre-draw has hints of hot spice about to be smoked.

The first third opens up with heavy spice that is almost hot on the tongue.  The burn line took about 10 minutes to really catch and start burning evenly.  The second third, the spice dims down a bit but still leaving that hot spice behind and now notice the mocha coffee flavor really kicking in.  The last third becomes very mellow with coffee notes and a sweet earthy tobacco.

Overall, this was a nice smoke.  Lots of smoke, easy draw, nice mixture of flavors.  The burn line was great once it got going, and left behind a thick dark gray ash.  I would say the strength is on the higher medium side, and look forward to smoking these with a little more humidor rest time.
J. Fuego Origen Toro4 Star Ratingbmac775410/24/2014 5:24 PM
Flawless wrapper, nice solid feel, easy pre-draw, and a barnyard aroma to it.  The first third starts off very spicy with a nutty background.  The second third to the end transitions to a creamy nut and plain earthy tobacco with just a little spice lingering around.

Overall this had nice flavors, tons of smoke, and an excellent burn line.  Strength was medium and takes just a tad over a hour to smoke.
Man O' War Side Project: Little Devil4 Star RatingCamshaft8310/24/2014 3:32 PM
    Very nice dark chocolaty wrapper that has an oily sheen and a few viens. Pack is firm and it smells of sweet tobacco and peppery spice.
    1st half blasts out of the gate with a nice sweet tobacco and peppery spice. The draw and burn are near perfect. The spice dies down a half inch in or so. The smoke is thick and smooth but there is a touch of a gritty feeling in the back of my throat due to the spice on the finish.
    2nd half adds a little bit of a nut and a touch of cedar.  The peppery spice has taken a back seat to the other flavors leaving more of just a heat on the finish. The draw is near perfect as is the burn.  Smoke is thick and smooth and the grit from the first half is gone.
    Very nice cigar that isn't to complex but the flavors it has blend very well together. As far as construction goes I had zero issues. Ash held for nearly 2 inches at a time and the burn was near razor sharp.
Asylum Premium Petite Corona4 Star RatingItalianGuido10/24/2014 3:32 PM
This dark little beauty is packed with flavor and smoke. Leather, wood, and cocoa start coming out right away. In the second half, swiss chocolate really dominated. The burn and construction were fine. Watch out! It's got a pretty good nic kick. About 45 minutes of smoking pleasure.
Ramon Bueso Odyssey Robusto4 Star RatingItalianGuido10/24/2014 12:15 PM
A creamy nutty delight with good draw. It has some grass, but not heavy.  Milk chocolate on the finish.  A great mid-morning or afternoon snack. Construction was great with great burn and a compact white ash.

La Gloria Cubana Serie R Black No. 58 Double Gordo3 Star RatingChadboskie10/24/2014 11:46 AM
Good cigar. For as dark of a wrapper with the sheen it had I would have thought it would have produced more of a bold flavor. The wrapper reminded of the bareknuckle wrapper. This is a giant size so I would like to try it again but in a smaller size cigar. It was good enough for me to smoke it all the way until I burnt my fingers. I had to touch up a few times, but with this being a monster cigar I guess I could expect that. I like the flavor but I would it to have been more intense of a flavor.
Room 101 The Big Payback Hueso4.5 Star Ratingjchism10/24/2014 8:34 AM
For the price point this is a very good cigar. The initial inhale after being clipped is a nice lightly woody and earthy flavor. The toasted foot has a pleasing aroma of cedar and some spice. The first third was light and some taste of coffee and spice. The second was a little bolder and more of the flavors mentioned before. It had a great finish that left me wanting another. This may not be for everyone as it is a bit of a loose role and is a solid medium with some minor full tones. I recommend it for the price, it is worth a try.
Studio Tabac (by Oliva) Nub Cafe Cappuccino 4602.5 Star RatingStogieDad10/24/2014 6:02 AM
I picked a single up with some caution.  I don’t think I have ever smoked an infused stick, but these had me intrigued for a morning smoke with my coffee.  It’s a decent looking stick, a splotchy, slightly wrinkly golden wrapper, and as with all Nubs I have smoked, packed full with tobacco.  The cap was slightly sweetened, which I do not enjoy, but that did clear after a few puffs.  The draw was fine, but the burn did wander a bit, requiring a few touch-ups before it got out of control.  About average smoke production from this one.

Started creamy with a heavy dose of cedar.  There is a definite note of creamed coffee, but it has an artificial, slightly chemical taste.  About an inch in, this thing is full-on cedar, probably the most distinct and dominating cedar note I have tasted in a cigar I can remember.  That is the rest of the smoke, with some of that artificial sweetness coming in and out, but the cedar being the main flavor.

Not my deal here.  I may try the Espresso in the corona vitola instead of the Nub, as I think this size is too much for this type of cigar.  But this is not an answer to the what to smoke with your coffee in the morning question.
Espinosa y Ortega (EO Brands) EO No. 21 Toro4.5 Star Ratingebernabe10/23/2014 10:57 PM
this cigar was good.   I didn't get any specific aroma or taste preflight.  when first lit, I got a light grassy taste which turned to a sweet citrus taste.  toward the end, I got occasional hints of gin and tonic with the citrus.   burned evenly with a good draw.
