Paso D'León Liga Castro #1August, 201378
CG Rating
Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Ken Kelley
Thanks for including me in this critique, Dave. I always enjoy the chance to review a cigar I've never smoked before. This one was good in its own way but it didn't really keep my interest for the 90 ...Read More
Oliva/ Studio Tabac Serie V Melanio Petit CoronaAugust, 201391

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Nathan. (nwb)
Overall, this was another quality cigar from Oliva.  It had a lot of similarities to the Series V, while being both creamier and spicier than its cousin.  This is a quality cigar, ...Read More
Oliva/ Studio Tabac Serie V Melanio Petit CoronaAugust, 201388
CG Rating
Written by Cigar Geeks Member: ljlemer
Very good tasting smoke, but not excellent. Was concerned throughout by slightly uneven burn, which turned out to be just a distraction, as it never got really bad. Lack of complexity was missed. Dese...Read More
Oliva/ Studio Tabac Serie V Melanio Petit CoronaAugust, 201389

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: The Jackal, A.K.A. Jason Sherlock (Jackal)
This was a very tasty little cigar and it left me wanting more.  I was not thrilled by the grassiness, but I think that with some more age, these should develop nicely.  I will hav...Read More
Oliva/ Studio Tabac Serie V Melanio Petit CoronaAugust, 201390
CG Rating
Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Les (Hot Stuff x)
A great cigar in the first 1/3, a good cigar the rest of the way through. Some age may improve this though. At $7 - $8 a stick, I'm not convinced it's a great value. It was full of flavor, probably me...Read More
Oliva/ Studio Tabac Serie V Melanio Petit CoronaAugust, 201385

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: SenorPablo
This was a cigar that you can't judge by its cover.  It looks really nice and has an appealing aroma to it.  But it just fell down on the flavor category for my tastes.  ...Read More
Drew Estate Herrera Esteli CoronaJuly, 201390
CG Rating
Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Brlesq
This was a complex cigar with cubanesque qualities.  You can tell that Drew Estates put a lot of effort into making this a high quality cigar.  I smoked a dozen of these when they ...Read More
Drew Estate Herrera Esteli CoronaJuly, 201396
CG Rating
Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Smurf
This really is a cigar that once you light it you do not want to put it down. I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish. It is defiantly a nice medium cigar that you can smoke at anytime of the day...Read More
Drew Estate Herrera Esteli CoronaJuly, 201393

This was one of my favorite cigars I've ever had.  From the label design to the flavors, aroma and smoking experience, this cigar agreed with me fully.  I will definitely be adding...Read More
Drew Estate Herrera Esteli CoronaJuly, 201390

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Nathan (nwb)
Overall, this was a very good cigar.  You couldn't ask much more as far as construction is concerned, and the flavors were both complex and full.  This would rate a solid four star...Read More
Drew Estate Herrera Esteli CoronaJuly, 201393

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Eddie (BlackIrish)
Not your typical Drew Estate cigar, the Herrera Esteli corona has almost everything I'm looking for in a Nicaraguan cigar.  It's got layers of flavor, with an underlying Nicaraguan sweetness...Read More
Valeroso Primavera RegaloJune, 201391
CG Rating
Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Longhorn
This is a good, medium bodied cigar.  It is well constructed and burned perfectly. Lots of thick smoke and good complexity in its flavor.  I’d recommend this as a “must have” in yo...Read More
Valeroso Primavera RegaloJune, 201395
CG Rating
Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Karl F. (CrazyK)
Overall, it is very difficult to find any fault with this cigar. Sure, the band is not as pretty as some, and the wrapper is a bit on the rustic-looking side, but this cigar delivers from start to fin...Read More
Valeroso Primavera RegaloJune, 201392
CG Rating
Written by Cigar Geeks Member: 1sgjeffward
I'm not sure how old this cigar was, other than the few weeks I have had it resting, but would be willing to bet these are GREAT right off the truck! I'm also not sure of the price on these since I co...Read More
Valeroso Primavera RegaloJune, 201390
CG Rating
Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Rebecca (Rebecca Silverwolf)
This was a pretty good cigar, and I think Valeroso has made a very high quality product. The Regalo is apparently the mildest of the line, and is actually a little too mild for my preferences. I've al...Read More

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: The Jackal, A.K.A. Jason Sherlock (Jackal)
There is no getting around that this is a quality cigar with many excellent aspects.  I, however, got spoiled by previously having the Fogoso (Rothschild) vitola in this line, which has a mu...Read More

I really enjoyed this cigar. The flavor profile was very tasty and changed up a few times, which kept me interested throughout the entire cigar. The performance of this stick was great and the smoke o...Read More
Jameson Santos de Miami HavenJune, 201386

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Brad (Vroomp)
As noted, this cigar had only a few flavors for me and was mostly sweet fruit flavors like raisins and maybe pear with a light citrus finish. The woody notes came into play later in the cigar and were...Read More

Overall this is a very good cigar.  But where it falls short for me is in the flavor.  I am trying not to compare it to my flavor biases, but there isn't a lot to the flavor on thi...Read More

This cigar was excellent aside from the tight draw. This might not be in my regular rotation, but I will definitely try to keep a few in my humidor for a great change of pace and something a bit light...Read More

CAO Right CoastMay, 201368

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: wescat
This cigar was definitely not my cup’o tea. I didn’t love it, I didn’t hate it, this cigar just did not enthuse me. The CAO Right Coast is a big, One-Of-A-Kind cigar. Give one a try; it is one of the ...Read More
CAO Right CoastMay, 201384

This cigar was way out of my comfort zone on many levels.  I usually gravitate to petit coronas, lonsdales, and lanceros.  I like the smaller ring gauges because I feel the wrapper...Read More

Overall I thought this was a good cigar.  It is a nice long smoke, but if you have the time it is quite enjoyable.  It reminded me a lot of the big ring gauge MUWAT.  If ...Read More

I expected much more out of this cigar.  I am usually a CAO fan and enjoy most of their premium offerings.   Even their gimmick lines, such as the Sopranos or Yin-Yang, are worthy ...Read More

A visually appealing cigar with decent flavor until the end – I would not hesitate to smoke this again but would be mindful to put it down with 1.5 to 2 inches left.

Hat tip to Wayne and Gary ...Read More

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Jason (jharrisx5)
In summary, while this cigar was lacking a bit in the complexity department, the flavors weren't anything I'd avoid.  Construction was a bit below what I expect from a premium handmade, at l...Read More

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Bryan (metalhead y cigarguy)
Overall, this was not a terrible cigar but not a good cigar either. It did have a nice presentation with the label, but that was about the best it got. It was one dimensional with the flavor profile, ...Read More

Overall, this stick may look like a good stick, but looks can be deceiving. It started out okay and had a consistent earthy profile which I am not extremely fond of but am not opposed of either. I don...Read More

A good, solid cigar. As noted above, it held a consistent, earthy taste with some variation throughout.  Not overly strong - leaning towards the medium end of the medium/bold rating.

Overall, not a bad smoke at all! I was going to give it a few points lower as a $9 cigar until I took another look and saw that we can pick them up from Tim for less than $6. I know not all of you rat...Read More

Overall the I-Beam was an enjoyable smoke. The first half of the cigar was exactly what I was expecting, and exactly what I was looking for in an Ortega that had been branded BOLD. It was looking like...Read More

My first impression of this cigar was certainly not overwhelmingly positive. It had a huge, thick vein running down the entire length of it causing the wrapper to raise along it. The colour was a dark...Read More

Overall, I was expecting a much stronger cigar. While it had some burn issues, overall I was pleased. It may not have a flavor profile I tend to go for, but it was a pleasing smoke nonetheless. I thin...Read More
