Gurkha/ K. Hansotia & Co. East India Red Witch Robusto3 Star Ratingntanner7/16/2018 9:50 PM
     Decent looking wrapper,a few vein lines,no real sheen but the wrapper doesn't look dry either,good box press. Takes a cut well and the draw is good. There is a soft spot in the cannon under the band but let's see what happens.
     Nice spice in the retro,mocha and cream hints and a sweet finish with a strong tobacco core. Smoke production is good and so far this cigar is hitting all the right notes.
     Getting some leather and a chared note that is actually pretty good. The burn has been a little wonky and the ash all though holding to past a inch has a lot of dark grey in it and a lot of loose flecks.
     Getting some nut and coffee going into the last third and a touch of sweetness with some caramel hints. Burn has been erratic at best. Flavors were not bad but construction was pretty poor.
Drew Estate ACID Remi (blue) Kuba Kuba (Sumatra)5 Star Ratingkurtb7187/16/2018 5:46 PM
The cigar is very soft, and loosely wrapped. There were no signs of defects. The Kuba Kuba had slight small veins. My one complaint is that the wrapper seems a bit thin. Floral scents, mixed with spices, coffee, and tobacco are strong through the cellophane. The tastes are that of floral arrangements mixed with soft spice, clove, cinnamon, and even a mist of mocha. I would steer clear of these if you don’t enjoy smoking aromatics, but if you are looking to start, or already enjoy them the ACID Kuba Kuba would sit well with you.
Gispert Intenso Toro3.5 Star Ratingdruid7/16/2018 3:52 PM
A firm, box-pressed stick with a near-black wrapper & some slight mottling, flattened veins & deepset oils.  PLA light leather & old barn; PLT leathery cocoa; PLD moderately easy.  Toasts, lights & draws easily, the burn is fairly even, & the smoke is a bit chalky.  Faint cocoa with some leather & wood notes lead off.  The woods intensify through the half & rule the finish.  The cocoa remains in the background & tempers the flavor & finish of this high-medium-to-low-full smoke.  Not bad but not very exciting.

Disappointing. Bland leather in the first half with a tight draw and not enough smoke. Picked up with pepper in the second half, loosened and produced good smoke and burn was near perfect. Spice disappeared in the final third, it was bland and needed one re-light and one correction.

Oscar Valladares Leaf by Oscar Maduro Lancero4 Star Ratingjunglepete7/14/2018 9:19 AM
4.25 Stars. Very well constructed stick here. A firm but not too tight draw allows for plenty of smoke. Long smooth draws can be had without overheating. Razor sharp burn. Medium bodied until into the second half where it moves into a medium-full category. I don't smoke a lot of lanceros, but this one is a treat.. Lots of leather and earth tones. Quality Stick.
La Palina El Diario K.B. II (Kill Bill II)3.5 Star Ratingjunglepete7/14/2018 8:45 AM
Solid smoke @ 3.75 stars. Really enjoyed the first 3/4. After that a bit of sourness evolved. Ash was a little flakey, just a bit, and the odd touch up was required. Had it as a morning puff with a London Fog. Smooth and plenty of good smoke to go around.
