Southern Draw Code Duello Kudzu Perfecto
Cigar Review: Southern Draw Code Duello Kudzu Perfecto



Cigar smoking is a social event that gives us the chance to connect with others from all different walks of life. If your local cigar shop is anything like mine, on a daily basis we solve the world’s problems, and then we start all over again the next day. During these sessions we have a tendency to share cigars we like with each other.

Davidoff Yamasá Cigar Review
Cigar Review: Davidoff Yamasá Toro


Although it is not a region known for its tobacco, Davidoff has been growing cigar tobacco in the Yamasá region of the Dominican Republic for over 20 years, and have now decided to use the Yamasá leaf in the newest addition to the "black label" line. Master Blender Henke Kelner has put a lot of care into making this cigar turn out just right, doing everything from raising the pH of the soil in Davidoff's Yamasá fields to having climate controlled storage for the tobacco to be stored and dried.

Foundation Cigar Co. Tabernacle
Cigar Review: The Tabernacle by Foundation Cigar Co.



In Exodus, God commanded Moses to erect a Tabernacle in the dessert, situated due east and west, which was where in the Holy of Holies the Ark of the Covenant was to be kept. This is where Foundation Cigar Company’s new The Tabernacle takes its name from. Nick Melillo teamed up with AJ Fernandez’s factory to produce this excellent full bodied Connecticut Broadleaf cigar.

Toraño Exodus 2016 by General Cigar
Cigar Review: Toraño Exodus (2016)


In 2014, General Cigar Co. acquired the Toraño Family brands in a well publicized deal, with Jack Toraño remaining on as the brand’s ambassador. While last year there was not much new from under the Toraño banner, this year there were several new releases on display at the IPCPR Trade Show, the most noticeable of which was an new Toraño Exodus. This new Exodus is both something new and a cigar that can be appreciated by past fans of the Toraño brand.

Stogies RoMa Craft Neanderthal H-Town Lancero
Cigar Review: RoMa Craft Neanderthal H-Town Lancero (Stogies Exclusive)



Stogies’ H-Town Lancero Series has had many great cigars, but it seems like the last several have been among the best and would be a hard act to follow. Skip Martin’s RoMa Craft Tobac has managed to continue the high standards set by earlier H-Town releases with his Neanderthal H-Town Lancero. Full bodied and flavorful, the Neanderthal H-Town is unlike any other cigar in the series of lanceros made exclusively for Stogies World Class Cigars in Houston, Texas.

Cornelius & Anthony Venganza
Cigar Review: Cornelius & Anthony Venganza



So far, Steven Bailey’s Cornelius & Anthony has been releasing some really impressive cigars. The Venganza, their latest release, follows the Cornelius and Daddy Mac, and manages to continue the company’s streak of excellent cigars. The Venganza is a full bodied cigar coming from Erik Espinosa’s La Zona Factory in Estelí. With its full body and flavor, the Venganza is likely to be the company’s most successful release yet.
