Drew Estate Liga Privada #9 Corona Doble4.5 Star RatingMacMac10/8/2015 5:25 PM
The Drew Estate Liga Privada #9 Corona Doble is a grand cigar. The cigar is large and wonderfully constructed. It's wrapper is marbled in color--brown, dark brown and black. The cigar is firm and was a little difficult to punch but the result was a nice round punched hole that provided a good draw. The wrapper was textured to the feel with veins and dimples. The #9 had a earthy aroma with a hint of hay and the foot smelled of barnyard.
The #9 roasted and lit easily with the first flavors being that of roasted coffee and tobacco. The cigar produced an abundance of smooth and creamy smoke. The flavors were that of Tobacco and Express with a leather finish. Later the cigar gave a hint of pepper. The cigar had to be re-lit twice--once halfway through and again in the final third. After each re-light the cigar was a bit bitter but recovered quickly providing good flavor again. The cigar was complex in flavor, medium to full in body and full in strength. A very nice smoke.
Partagas Cifuentes Maduro Double Robusto3 Star Ratinglubrix10/8/2015 3:16 PM
A solid feel to this stick. A light sheen on the near seamless and vein less wrapper. The firsts were tastes of bakers chocolate,leather and spice. The mid's were leather,earth and spice and this profile remained unchanged to the finish. Nice full flavors though not too complex. The draw was great,the burn was dead on and the ash held strongly. Medium-full in body.
Vega Fina (DR) Nicaragua Corona2.5 Star Rating05Venturer10/8/2015 10:19 AM
Fairly rough looking stick with visible seams and a couple small veins and a light brown wrapper.
Prelight aroma is very light earth and tobacco.
First flavor to hit my pallet are pepper and leather.
Flakey dark ash held on about 3/4 inch, burn stayed very straight, then just about 1/2 way point it went out and needed relight and it was a struggle to keep it lit the rest of the cigar. Smoke output really diminished into the second 1/2. Flavors really dropped off in the second 1/2 also, started getting an ammonia flavor right towards the end to add to the bitterness that was coming around.
Not much of a smoke in my opinion
Illusione Singulare 2013 Rose Croix4 Star RatingKid Montana10/7/2015 5:09 PM
Great feeling cigar, nice draw, very well made.  Initial puffs are smooth floral notes, a bit of spices.  Flavor strength is medium, occasionally less.  Hints of buttery vanilla, smooth, creamy.  Reminds me of a poppy-seed cake without all the sugar.  Very well balanced profile with good smoke production and a beautiful nose.  The retrohale really opens up the flavors; tons of great spices and complexity without being strong.  Occasional light notes of white pepper and wood with the spices.  The burn and draw are excellent.  Flavors stay fairly consistent into the middle, losing a bit of creaminess and the vanilla is replaced by more wood and a bit of leathery punchiness.  The ash never holds on for more than 3/4".  Into the last third, the cigar loses a lot of its wow factor, becoming more woody and less complex though still a good medium smoke.  Occasionally you get a hint of the buttery spiced vanilla from the first half but its infrequent and fleeting.  Overall, a good smoke though maybe not a great value at MSRP.  
Oliva/ Studio Tabac Serie V Liga Especial Torpedo3.5 Star Ratingntanner10/7/2015 4:02 PM
     Decent sheen, smooth wrapper, solid cannon, nice looking cigar over all.Cap is well applied and cut's well. Draw is firm with a musty wood flavor pre-lite.
     Takes a toast well and initial flavors are toasted sugar cane and nut's.
     The second third starts with a nice mocha joining the toasted sugar cane and also getting some wood note's. Around the half way mark I begin to detect a dried berry note.
     The last third is marked by the addition of a leather hint to the profile.
     Good flavors with a nice balance, solid ash. Smoke production was a bit low witch may have taken some from the flavors.
Romeo y Julieta Romeo Anejo Toro3.5 Star Ratingntanner10/7/2015 3:42 PM
     Good looking cigar, double silver and black bands compliment the oily looking wrapper nicely. Nice earthy aroma to the wrapper and tobacco and sweet spice at the foot. The cannon is solid and cap is well applied and cut's well.
     I get flavors of macadamia nut,vanilla and toasted sugar cane with a nice sweet hint and good spice in the retro. Smoke production is good.
     Bakers chocolate marks the start of the second third and the toasted sugar cane becomes more of a malty flavor and is joined by an almond note.
     espresso joins the mix in the last third as the sweetness fades a bit and the macadamia returns with a chocolate note.
     Decent smoke,nothing to exciting but burned well and provided plenty of smoke. Flavors just never really got that good, the first third was the best part of this cigar.

A solid feel to this stick. A light sheen on the near seamless wrapper with one vein. The firsts were tastes of pepper,leather and oak. The mid's were cream,cedar,nuts and spice. The last quarter was leather,oak and pepper with notes of berries. Nice full flavors with complexity. The draw was great,the burn was dead on and the ash held strongly. Medium-full in body.

Cigars International Blend Lab JR-61544 Star RatingChadboskie10/6/2015 4:42 PM
This cigar shocked me. It was a medium bodied creamy cigar with good spice and a sweet cedar flavor. It was made well. The wrapper split in one place but didn't cause any problems. It burnt perfectly and the ash held on for over two inches. A great cigar.
601 Serie La Bomba Limited Edition Warhead II4 Star RatingStogieDad10/6/2015 2:19 PM
Really a great example of a full strength stick that still has flavor.  Nice looking oily wrapper, with a box press and a fuse that is stuck to the wrapper itself.  The band is really cool as it is a "bomb" itself once it is unfurled.  Very cool.

Burn was spot on, nice straight burn with a firm white ash.  Tons of thick smoke, easy draw.  All in all very nice performance wise.

As expected, it's heavy notes of smoky oak, pepper, black coffee and rich earthy tobacco.  There is just a tad of sweetness in the background to balance it a bit.  Very nice profile.  Not terribly complex, but tasty nonetheless.

I would certainly smoke more, and since I scored a box on CA a while back at under $4 a stick, that's a steal!
