Southern Draw Kudzu
Cigar Review: Southern Draw Kudzu Gordo


One day while hanging out at Stogies of Houston, I ran into Robert Holt from Southern Draw Cigars. After a very long conversation, I had the chance to try the Southern Draw Firethorn (which made our 2014 Honorable Mention List) and was quite impressed. A few weeks later when the cigars arrived at the shop, I picked up the Southern Draw Kudzu and was blown away. It was full bodied with some strong flavors, and just the thing I like to smoke at the end of a long day.

Fratello H-Town Lancero from Stogies World Class Cigars
Cigar Review: Fratello H-Town Lancero (Stogies Exclusive)



Between Jorge Ahued and Willy Style, I have rediscovered a love of lancero cigars. I still like my larger churchills and 6” x 58s, but I am smoking more and more lanceros due in large part to the awesomeness of the H-Town series. It seems with each successive release in the H-Town series the cigars just keep getting better. The new Fratello Lancero is even better than the previous two releases (the Room 101 Namakubi Ecuador and the Alec Bradley Nica Puro). Full flavored and medium bodied, the Fratello H-Town Lancero is a great cigar.

Cigar Review: La Flor Dominicana Football Special Edition 2015

At La Flor Dominicana they have taken this relationship to the next level by releasing a special cigar in Arizona (home of this year’s Super Bowl) that is football themed. The La Flor Domicana Football Special Edition is a full bodied full flavored cigar that seems perfectly designed...
