Cigar for the TroopsBy: SenorPablo
Hi Folks. I wanted to highlight some fine work by our brotherhood, and in particular, Nathan (nwb). Thanks to Nathan's efforts again this year and the generosity of our members, we will be sending over 1300 cigars to our well deserved troops who sacrifice so much so we can enjoy the freedom we have. These should hit in time for the holidays. Click here for some pics. Thanks Nathan and thanks members for another successful drive!

Arturo Fuente Curly Head Deluxe Candela3 Star Ratings+j7/29/2014 9:13 PM
Very basic, mildly flavorful, and just a tad rough on the tongue. Still, very decent for under 4 bucks retail. Gained some strength on the last third. Construction was outstanding (better than what I've experience with some of the much more expensive Fuentes!) and burn was slow and even, and lasted for almost an hour.
85 points
Gurkha 125th Anniversary XO5 Star Ratingxtremeweather7/29/2014 9:21 AM
Amazing cigar from start to finish. Complex flavors even burn.  Notes of leather ceadar orange peel and hints of spice. Wonderful smoking experience.
Black Crown Corona3 Star Ratings+j7/29/2014 2:07 AM
Medium bodied, with understated flavors of mostly wood. Draw was tight so I tried massaging the head -- eventually it cracked. Became medium-full at the nub. Burned for about an hour.

Bahia Gold Churchill Maduro3 Star Ratings+j7/28/2014 11:08 PM
A standard mild-to-medium bodied Maduro. No complexity but also nothing offensive about it -- it will pair well with most medium bodied red wines. Excellent construction and 50-minute burn. 87-88 points.
Oliveros Sun Grown Reserve Belicoso No.43.5 Star Ratings+j7/28/2014 8:52 PM
Notes of coffee, black pepper and wood on the palate, black pepper on the retrohale, and, again, black pepper as well as some cream on the finish. Outstanding construction, and a great value overall; I just wish there was less bitterness. Burns for about an hour.

Nica Libre Toro Grande2.5 Star RatingChadboskie7/28/2014 5:49 PM
It was ok. Medium-Full. I only tasted just your standard tobacco flavor. Burned fairly good until the end, then the wrapper burned on one side and not the other. Ok to get in a grab bag like I did, and fire up during golf or mowing the lawn.
La Aurora Barrel Aged Robusto4 Star RatingChadboskie7/28/2014 5:44 PM
Very good cigar. Nice strong cedar and oak flavor. very spicy. Construction and burn was perfect. Produced lots of smoke and aroma was wonderful. I look forward to smoking more of these cigars
Gurkha Viper Toro1 Star RatingChadboskie7/28/2014 5:36 PM
Cant say ive ever had a bad cigar until now. The flavor was horrible. Tasted like a dusty old rag. Reminded me of a Camel Filter. I barely made it through the first inch. After over half way through, I got a little better but its not worth the wait.
Tatuaje Pudgy Monster Tiff3.5 Star RatingThe Burn Ward7/28/2014 5:23 PM
I agree with Bruce's review, mostly. I think it hit the medium body profile pretty square. The taste is light and there are some interesting notes. I feel a year or 2 age will really make this cigar shine.

Smoke one to try and save one for later.
Tatuaje Pudgy Monster Tiff3 Star RatingBrlesq7/28/2014 4:49 PM
I was calling this cigar The Bride of Chuckie (as it was known early before its release), but now it is called Tiff. The binder and filler have been kept a secret. A light claro wrapper, perfect construction, ash burning straight to over an inch, but that is where this joyride ends for me. Strength is mild-medium, with taste of tea, green bell peppers and ashy. A few unidentifiable flavors peek through from time to time, some are OK but they are not always to my liking. I am not generally fond of milder cigars, but this profile might appeal to someone who likes to take a walk on the mild side.  Reminded me of Pete's Cabiguan blend or the Tatuaje Series P.  Smoked after 4 weeks of rest.
