Arturo Fuente Hemingway Signature Maduro4.5 Star RatingGhuskey4/25/2017 9:11 PM
    This was one of the more attractive cigars in my humidor. I almost hated to light it up, but you can't have your cake and eat it too, so I chose to "eat."
    Hot spice predominated during the first third. It reminded me of a hot sauce or pepper that is mildly spicy at first but which grows in intensity as it sits on the tongue. That gave way to a milder pepper fortunately. The aroma was a heavy, sweet, thick molasses that reminded me of the Fuente 858. Given the $2.80 difference in price, I would opt for the 858, but this Hemingway maduro is a fine smoke.
    The constitution and burn were perfect.
601 Serie Steel Spike4 Star RatingSmokin surfer4/25/2017 7:35 PM
I have rested this stick for over a year. The rosado colored habano wrapper is oily with a fine tooth like wetsand paper and smells of sweetened cedar and aged, highly fermented tobacco. This is the last few sticks of a box purchase, none of the cigars disappointed. The flavors are well rounded with a full body and smooth draw. Lots of pepper and fruity notes, a nice floral finish that also has medium pepper bite but not harsh!  I don't remember these kicking my butt with nicotine but it's certainly there to be had a plenty. The going price for the 601 Steel blend is stupid cheap. I reccommend to medium-full habano lovers with plenty of time to indulge at about a 2:15 hour smoke.
Man O' War Side Project: Little Devil4 Star Ratingdramich914/25/2017 4:50 PM
Very nice petite cigar. Skinny at a 44 gauge. Easy to light with the folded end. A nice smooth earthy flavor with coffee, cedar and pepper being the main notes that I could taste. Quickly becoming a fan of Man O' War
Gran Habano/ Rico Family Habano #3 Robusto4.5 Star Ratingdramich914/25/2017 4:44 PM
A definite must try. Nice leathery wrapper. Once lit, you get a nice cool smoke, not menthol cool but still noticeable. Flavors of coffee, cedar, nuts, and some spice make it very well balanced. Very nice cigar.
La Flor Dominicana La Nox5 Star Rating4thKnight4/25/2017 4:03 PM
Great dark and full flavored experience. If your not someone who smokes full flavors, this stick is not for you. Beautiful looking Toro with beautiful dark color and gorgeous lines. While it's a full and heavier smoke, it's snoothness is apparent. It has a ton of spice throughout and great nutty tones in its flavor profile. Yet another gem from the masters at La Flor Dominicana
Macanudo Maduro Hyde Park4 Star Ratingklamm1434/24/2017 11:05 PM
I'm a "Mac" lover and usually go for the bolder full bodied Maduros. This stick is somewhat mild and good for anyone just starting out to the Mac-line and flavors. It has a dark oily wrapper that lights and draws easy. A constant flavor and draw throughout needing no re-lights nor touch-ups. Well constructed and burns with a tight grey-white ash and ample smoke. The stick started out with a sweet creamy flavor that remained constant throughout the entire burn. Give one a try - I think you will like it.

Goes great with the "brown ales and whiskeys".......JMHO.
Man O' War Side Project: 52C3.5 Star Ratingdramich914/24/2017 3:48 PM
Complex and smooth with flavors of oak, pepper, espresso and a hint of sweetness. Full bodied Cigar. Wedge shaped. Overall a nice addition to the Man O' War family in my opinion.
Man O' War Dark Horse4 Star Ratingheadfirst4/24/2017 8:25 AM
I think this little dude beats out papas fritas for the small scrap stick champ.  Lots of chocolate, strong spice, earthy, smokehouse type flavor and a slight sweetness.  Ash doesn't flake and falls at 1/2 inch.  Great draw and no bits of tobacco to spit out either, very well made.  Nice smoke output and body, and the spice lingers till the next puff.

Pigtail cap and shaggy foot worked like a charm, tear and light.

Retrohale is intense but actually eases up to where you can retro entire puffs toward the end.

Turned a little harsh in the last inch, otherwise would've been 4.5.
Black Label Trading Company Lawless Robusto3 Star RatingBrlesq4/23/2017 7:33 PM
Very heavy cigar.  Dark, oily wrapper.  But a very hard draw, even after poking it a few times. Slow burner. Hard to discern any outstanding flavors.  Picked up some sour notes, maybe leather too.  Not a bad cigar, but nothing special, and certainly not worth $10.
Argyle Robusto Maduro4 Star Ratingjagfandaddy4/23/2017 1:29 PM
I picked this up on Holt's with a deal of 30 other cigars. I was not expecting a lot do to price, boy was I surprised. First light was a bit on the leathery side midway gave way to coffee and nutty flavors. I would buy again.
