La Jugada Nunchuck Cigar for Cigar Dojo
Cigar Review:La Jugada Nunchuck


The La Jugada Nunchuck is the third cigar blend to be released by Moya Ruiz Cigars. It is a limited edition cigar created for the Cigar Dojo online cigar site and social network. In keeping with the dojo theme, the cigars are packaged to resemble a pair of nunchucks. Only 1,000 boxes of 10 cigars are being released to La Jugada retailers across the country, and they should sell out pretty quickly. So far, Moya Ruiz Cigars has released really good high quality cigars made at Erik Espinosa’s La Zona factory.

Torano Vault A-008 Cigar
Cigar Review: Toraño Vault A-008 Torpedo


The Toraño Family has a long history in the cigar industry dating all the way back to 1916. However, the story of the Toraño Vault line of cigars dates to 1982 when Carlos Toraño Sr. began writing down the family’s blends in a “blend book” to keep track of the blends released and those that never left the factory. The book was locked away in a vault (hence the line’s name) until Charlie Toraño revisited the blend captured in the book. Blend A-008 dates to 2000, but was never released because it was missing something...

Caldwell Long Live the King Lancero cigar
Cigar Review: Caldwell Long Live the King Lancero


Robert Caldwell has been in the cigar industry a long time, but his boutique brand Caldwell Cigars is something new. They are still in the process of rolling out the line at select shops across the country. There is a quality and passion to these cigars that is very impressive. Perhaps the star of the new Caldwell line is the Long Live The King lancero. Wood and spice dominate this flavorful superbly constructed medium bodied lancero.

Camacho Ecuador Churchill cigar
Cigar Review: Camacho Ecuador Churchill



The Camacho Ecuador is an interesting new direction for Camacho. The Ecuadorian Habano wrapper is grown in the rugged soil beneath the Andes Mountains. When mixed with the Brazilian Mata Fina binder and Dominican and Honduran fillers create a unique blend of citrus, mint, oak, leather and chocolate flavors. The Camacho Ecuador is a great addition to the new Camacho line. With its reasonable price and great flavor the Ecuador is a great everyday cigar.

My Father La Antiguedad cigar
Cigar Review: My Father La Antiguedad


With their newest release, My Father has resurrected an old Cuban brand called La Antiguedad. The name translates as “The Antiquity” and it is similar to the Flor de las Antillas in appearance. This latest My Father cigar features an Ecuadorian wrapper with double Nicaraguan binders (both Criollo and Corojo). With chocolate and coffee as the backbone, there are also flavors of hazelnut, leather, spice and pepper. The La Antiguedad is a flavorful full bodied cigar that is sure to delight fans of the Garcia family.

Leccia Luchador Loco Perfecto Cigar
Cigar Review: Leccia Luchador Loco Perfecto


The Leccia Luchador takes it name from the famous masked Lucha Libre wrestlers in Mexico. Like those wrestlers the Luchador Loco Perfecto (litter all meaning “crazy perfect” in Spanish) is a spicy and peppery heavyweight that is sure to please. Packed full of every conceivable pepper flavor from crush red and ground black to green pepper. It’s an interesting mix of tobaccos that gives the Luchador its unique problem, including use of Pennsylvania Ligero.

Guest Article: The FDA is Officially Creeping Into Your Humidor by Glynn Loope


We wrote our first article about what federal regulation of cigars could mean on June 12, 2009. Seems like a lifetime. During that time, many thought it was a case of ‘crying wolf,’ with thoughts the U.S. Food & Drug Administration would be consumed with attacking other tobacco products well into the next decade, or even another generation. On that date in June of ’09, I stated “the actions of the agency will have to be monitored on a consistent basis.”

Cigar Review: 601 La Bomba Bunker Buster (Smoke Inn Mircoblend)



On June 6th, the anniversary of D-Day, Smoke Inn will release the latest cigar in its Microblend Series, the 601 La Bomba Bunker Buster from Espinosa cigars. A large launch party will be held at the Smoke Inn Casa de Monte Cristo in Boyton Beach, where to honor those who served our country, any active or former military will receive a free cigar and cocktail with a military ID. It’s nice to see the military aspect of the 601 Bunker Buster carried over to even its launch party.
