El Rey del Mundo Robusto Larga (Oscuro)4.5 Star RatingChadboskie10/30/2014 8:33 AM
This cigar is wonderful. Nice smooth nutty flavor. A well balanced cigar and the flavor stayed completely the same until the very end. I noticed the smoke was nice and cool also. It also had a wonderful aroma. I will be getting more of these.
E.P. Carrillo Edicion Limitada 2011 Dark Rituals4.5 Star Ratingcmmayo10/29/2014 10:41 PM
Holy jeez, this is a tasty cigar. It's got a lot of charry mesquite, a pleasant sweetness, and lots of coffee in the nasal exhale. The sweetness bounces from licorice to dried cherries to syrup. Bitter notes of coffee bean and cocoa balance the sweet flavors well.
Tons of smoke, solid ash, and a great burn. Not much to complain about... The draw is wide open, so I had to smoke it slowly, but I'm getting older... I do a lot of things more slowly these days.
Drew Estate Nica Rustica El Brujito3.5 Star RatingJackal10/29/2014 7:13 PM
This one was just not in my wheelhouse.  I am finding that Mexican wrappers just don't do it for me.  The cigar has a rustic appearance that is quite nice, but the burn was lopsided and I didn't care much for the flavors that were earthy but seemed overly harsh and not well balanced.

I am giving it 3.5 stars because I think that there are a lot of people who might like this profile, but I found it to be boring and a bit unpleasant.  In many ways it reminds me of  older Alec Bradley blends, such as the Tempest.
Padron 1964 Anniversary Imperial Maduro4.5 Star RatingJackal10/29/2014 7:07 PM
This cigar comes right out and hits you with a Full flavored dose of chewy coffee and earth.  After a minute or two it settles down and picks up oak, leather and brown spices while mellowing out to more of a med-full strength.

There is a lot going on with this one.  Different notes of vanilla, cedar red pepper and chocolate mover in and out of the profile, keeping you interest and giving you a lot of variety.

I will be having more of these.
Bugatti (by Perdomo) Robusto4 Star RatingJackal10/29/2014 7:01 PM
I found this cigar, like many from Perdomo, to be very enjoyable.  

It opened with a lot more peppery spice than I would have expected and then mellowed out into a woodsy floral profile, much akin to a Cuban cigar.  There were undertones of graham cracker, vanilla and cinnamon.

Burn was good and the ash stayed fairly tight.

If you are looking for a mildish Connecticut, I would recommend.
Flatbed Cigar Co. Panacea Black - Maduro Robusto4.5 Star RatingCfickter10/29/2014 4:31 PM
After the first taste of the Panacea green label you just have to move on and try the rest.  The Black label won't let you down.
I found this to be a smooth and almost creamy smoke with the traditional flavors of leather and earth along with some light spices typical of maduros.  
Nothing over complex, simple straight forward and consistent.  aathere is something very attractive in that simplicity
Flatbed Cigar Co. Panacea Green - PA Broadleaf Toro4.5 Star RatingCfickter10/29/2014 4:25 PM
this is the cigar that made me a Flatbed fan. It is hard to say that most if not all the Flatbed blends are terrific but for me the green label tops them all. A beautiful looking cigar, with just a slight touch of veining and a nice even toned chocolate brown wrapper,  
Cold draw shows earthy overtones with some light spice,  After the light the draw was excellent and full.  Keeping the earthy tones along with some leather and a touch of carmel.  
The burn was razor straight and well paced.  Leathery tones continued along with some toasted tobacco.  this is a brilliant cigar and if you get the chance to buy please do.
Not only that but Paul Bush, the owner, is top notch and understand cigar lovers like us.  Shipments are packaged better than any other seller and don't be surprised if it contains a personal note from Paul
Gurkha Beauty Sultan Box Press3 Star Ratingbigjohn2008198310/29/2014 3:29 PM
The flavors of the cigar was ok. It lit well and had a easy burn that was easy to keep going. The issue I had with it was the outside wrapper kept cracking and flaking away.  The is a average middle of the road cigar at best in my book. At the average price for these I feel you can get a better cigar.  I didn't not include the price because it was bought it as package deal and would not reflect the true price of a B&M
5 Vegas Series A Alpha4 Star RatingWontontoIsSmoking10/29/2014 6:51 AM
Fantastic cigar. Smooth, nutty, coffee aromas with a nice draw all the way through. A few smalll veins in the wrapper but burned very evenly with a long ash. Definitely a keeper and a great value cigar at 4.40 a pop
El Mejor Toro Gordo3.5 Star Ratingebernabe10/28/2014 10:56 PM
overall the flavor of the cigar was good.   I got a nutty and citrus essence  through the whole cigar.
no problems with burn or staying lit.   I  personally don't care for the huge ring sizes, but recommend this to you who do  like big rings.
