Camacho Connecticut Robusto (Monarca)3 Star Ratingbmac775411/23/2014 1:53 PM
Good presentation as it has just a few small veins, neatly looking roll, and a nice firm feel to it.

The flavors are pretty basic hay, nuts, little bit of pepper and an almost buttery popcorn flavors that lingers in the mouth.  The smoke is that of a medium cigar, leaves behind a flaky dark gray ash, and nothing more than a mild as far as the strength.  This to me was a middle of the road cigar.
Hoyo de Monterrey (Cuban) Petit Robusto5 Star RatingItalianGuido11/23/2014 12:55 PM
First 5 star rating for me! I have smoked other Cubans, but this is the best yet! After the initial blast, this thing is exquisitely smooth and creamy. The cocoa and nutty flavors are delicate. A few baking spices tingle my tounge. Nothing bitter or harsh at all. Slight ammonia that should fade as it ages. Construction and burn are great, the ash flakes a little, but nothing too bad. It's not a bold powerhouse, it's a super fine medium smoke. Jan14 box, 10 months age, 2 weeks in the humi.
Guerra Habano Robusto4 Star Ratingebernabe11/23/2014 10:05 AM
A great cigar.  A good even burn requiring no touch-ups or relights.

Pleasing prelight aroma.  After I lit the cigar, I got a peppery taste which turned to cinnamon with an occasional intense dark chocolate flavor.

Mi Barrio El Billetero3.5 Star Ratings+j11/22/2014 11:21 PM
Opens up with strong black pepper and some green leaf tannin. Medium-full bodied and not too complex overall, it became full bodied during the last third showing hints of sweetness and emitting some ammonia notes from the wrapper which fortunately did not show up too strongly during the final minutes of the smoke.

Nat Sherman 1930 Rothschild4 Star RatingSeanstoppable11/22/2014 8:21 PM

Cigar itself is of solid construction. No soft spots. Initial draw is a bit tight, with some sweet notes and leather.

Actual light gives leather and tobacco. Some sweet notes in the back.

Draw and flavor is consistent throughout. Some uneven burning, but that is probably because I dry boxed a little too long.

Smoked construction was pretty good. With ash falling out half way through.

Overall, not a lot of complexity, but a solid smoke.
La Flor Dominicana 1994 Mambo4 Star RatingRerileyjr11/22/2014 8:06 PM
Paired with an Irish Death at Smokey's nice and sweet but a little tart on the retro.  Medium draw good smoke and nice burn/construction.  Tartness went away after first inch replaced by cinnamon and fig.  Halfway mellows out with slight cinnamon and a little oak/leather.  Smooth and easy.  This may be the best LFD this year. Better than the Capiloto II.  Sorry Tony but the Chapter II needs more time.
A. Flores (by Pinar del Rio) Serie Privada Capa Maduro Churchill4.5 Star RatingRerileyjr11/22/2014 2:11 PM
this is the best cigar I've had this year and I smoke allot of great cigars.  sweet smooth cocoa/cream with caramel and slight cinnamon spice got me started.  It then got even smoother and creamier.  Perfect burn, tons of smoke and a light draw made the entire experience close to perfection.  This is a full bodied cigar without the harshness right down to the nub.
El Primer Mundo La Hermandad Costa Fuerte Cabillito4.5 Star RatingVroomp11/22/2014 12:47 PM
Another fine looking cigar from Sean Williams. This smooth brown wrapped beauty has four caps, no veins and invisible seams. The canon is quite firm but, after clipping the draw is superb. The cold draw is earthy with a light spice note evident.
After lighting this cigar produces great amounts of rich smoke and is a full medium from the start with notes of coffee, earth, leather and a light spice note and a dash of pepper on the retro-hale.
Not a lot of changes with flavors but, the cigar did intensify a bit towards the end and there was always a light sweetness lingering on the tongue making this a very enjoyable smoke.
Nomad S-307 Robusto4.5 Star Ratingkristofn11/22/2014 12:11 PM
Solid construction and my first Nomad.  Cinnamon spice and slight bit of earth.  I might have been dreaming when I tasted something sweet too. Never got nasty or required touch ups, so I might be a repeat customer.
Don Pepin Garcia (My Father Cigars) Series JJ Salomon4 Star RatingCfickter11/22/2014 7:39 AM
The Series JJ, IMHO, is one of the best lines by DPG.  Beautiful looking cigar, chocolate brown wrapper, little veining, solid construction.
Cold draw is semi-sweet, light hay.  Clip both ends, easy to light with the salomon shape.  First hot draw is full and easy.  Similar to the cold draw there is a strong sweet flavor with some light woody flavors.  There is a richness and semi-creaminess to this I haven't had in other vitolas.
Burn line is perfect and the rate makes this a good hour and thirty minute to near two hour cigar.  Rest of the cigar remains very rich with some complexity on a milder level.
