Cigar Review: Room 101 Johnny Tobacconaut

Matt Booth is a creative guy, and the Johnny Tobacconaut from his Room 101 Brand is a creative concept for a cigar. As the press release for the cigar put it, “One small puff for man, one giant cascade of flavor for mankind is what our dear friend and comrade in arms Johnny Tobacconaut seeks to deliver unto you.” The full bodied and flavorful Johnny Tobacconaut is a cigar that delivers a great smoking experience in an all perfecto line.

Daddy Mac Cigar by Cornelius & Anthony
Cigar Review: Daddy Mac by Cornelius & Anthony

The release of the Cornelius by Cornelius & Anthony Cigars was an extremely impressive cigar made at Miami’s El Titan de Bronze. How do they follow that impressive first cigar?

Yet, of all the products in the Xikar line perhaps the most impressive is the MTX Multi Tool.
