La Flor Dominicana L-Granu Cigar Review

In 2013, Litto Gomez released the La Flor Dominicana L-Granu which is part of the Ligero portfolio. Looking at the box of La Flor Dominicana L-Granu it might be the largest in the cigar industry considering its a 100 count box. It amazes me that big ring gauge cigars weren’t just a novelty and that they continue to sell like crazy while my personal favorites of coronas, corona gorda and lanceros barely move the needle at […]

IPCPR 2018 – La Flor Dominicana

La Flor Dominicana has played it close to the vest this year with what their new releases would be, if any. Last year the company released La Volcada which started out with a supply issue before becoming somewhat readily available. Also, fans of the brand as of late have had a hard time tracking down some of their favorite Maduro smokes and the company still hasn’t met the demands of Andalusian Bull. This year it […]

Davidoff Signature 2000 “702 Series” – Prerelease Cigar Review

Back in 2009, Davidoff released a limited batch of cigars known as the “Davidoff Selección 702” that many considered the company’s best blend to date. It was unique because Davidoff used an exclusive wrapper from Ecuador that was a hybrid of three different seeds and used 80% Dominican ligero filler tobaccos for strength and taste. A combination that Master Blender Henke Keller worked extensively on. Since then, you’d be lucky to get your hands on […]

La Flor Dominicana DL-600 Maduro

With IPCPR just days away there are a lot of brands that will be introduced that might not remain on the market in two years as the FDA regulations inch closer to enforcement. In fact, in three years there might not be any brands on the shelf that were introduced after 2007. The La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero is a brand that will meet the requisite date and will continue to exist after the FDA […]

Camacho Liberty 2016 Cigar Review

The Camacho Liberty has been in production since 2002 and it will be interesting to see if this line can survive the FDA regulations that are almost upon us. While the cigar has been marketed continuously since the 2007 date; then the blend has changed from year to year. According to a press release, “This year’s Camacho Liberty cigar is a rich and powerful blend featuring tobaccos from five different origins, skillfully rolled in a […]

KILO Toro – Cigar Review

Last year, our very own Barry Stein released Kilo; cigar that he had been working on for quite some time. He was looking for something that would fit his palate, a cigar with strength and balance. So while Barry originally worked with La Aurora on the blend he turned to Noel Rojas to complete the project, which was ultimately rolled at the Aromas de Jalapa factory in Esteli, Nicaragua and distributed by United Cigar. And […]

Neya F8 by Duran Cigars Toro Cigar Review

The back story of the Neya and Neya F8 brand is perhaps one of the most interesting and funny stories I have heard to date in the cigar industry. The story goes that one of the blenders at Duran Cigars wanted to name a cigar after his mother to honor her. The wish was granted, and the Neya was created. When it came time to create the artwork the blender was asked if he had […]

Review | Camacho Diploma

An interesting topic of conversation led to the cigar we picked for review today. That conversation was based on the recent sale of Drew Estate to Swisher International. We discussed how over the history of time, not many brands have faired well after a merger. These brands tend to go down hill as new ownership tries to tinker with the old brand. Very rarely does a brand get better. Camacho is one of these rare […]
