Euforia Dominican Cigar from GMD Cigars
Cigar Review: Euforia (Dominican) Toro by GMD Cigars



Global Marketing & Distribution (GMD) Cigars may have an unappealing name, but they have some extremely appealing cigars in their portfolio. At the IPCPR in New Orleans I discovered the appeal of these impressive luxury cigars. The Dominican Euforia (yes, it’s spelled that way) is a flavorful medium bodied cigar with the quality that one would expect from a cigar produced at Kelner Boutique Factory in the Dominican Republic.

WIYH Master Sensei of Cigar Dojo
What's In Your Humidor?: Master Sensei of Cigar Dojo


There’s few people in the cigar media world that I admire more than Eric Guttormson (Master Sensei) over at Cigar Dojo. In a very short time Dojo has gone from a cigar blog to a cigar media empire with a mobile app, weekly contests, an online show (Smoke Night Live), merchandise (there’s even Dojo trading cards), events and cigars sold through third party shops (ie. the Undercrown Dogma or Viaje Throwdown). As the visionary behind this empire, Master Sensei has become the Elon Musk of the cigar media world.

Woody by Oscar Cigar
Cigar Review: The Woody by Oscar



Oscar Valladares has made a name for himself making unique cigars. There’s the Leaf by Oscar (wrapped in a tobacco leaf rather than cello), the Big Johnny (an 8” x 66 version of the Leaf Maduro) and the Island Jim No. 2 (that looks like a No. 2 pencil). Now, Oscar has released a cigar (mainly for events) that is a massive 21” x 100 vitola, and comes in individual coffins. While the Woody is more for show than anything else, it is a smokeable cigar and is actually surprisingly good.

Aj Fernandez Enclave Figurado Cigar
Cigar Review: AJ Fernandez Enclave Figurado


One year ago, AJ Fernandez teamed up with his father Ismael to create the New World, and followed it up with the New World Connecticut. (See our earlier New World review.) Now, they have once again partnered together in the creation of the AJ Fernandez Enclave. Beginning with the New World, there has been a reworking of the AJ Fernandez Portfolio that has been very well done. With an Ecuadorian Habano Rosado wrapper and African Cameroon binder, the Enclave is a very distinctive addition to the AJ brand.

Cabal Esoteric Robusto Cigar
Cigar Review: Cabal Esoteric Robusto



While developing the Cabal core line at KBF, Chris Arolfo went through 21 blends or so with many of those being tweaked several times. According to Chris there was one robusto that he kept coming back to again and again, despite the fact that it did not fit into the core line flavor profile. Yet, it was too good a cigar to let go, so the Cabal Esoteric Robusto was born. The result is a medium bodied cigar with a very interesting flavor profile.

Warped La Colmena Amado No 44 Cigar
Cigar Review: Warped La Colmena No. 44



With so many boutique brands on the market being started by cigar industry celebrities, it is rare for a new brand to burst onto to the scene with the kind of quality, style, character and positive press that Jupiter, Florida based Warped Cigars has. While many boutiques fail to live up to the hype, Warped seems to surpass the hype. Although owner Kyle Gellis’ company began in 2009, in the last year and a half the company has really come into its own. With cigars coming from El Titan de Bronze and Casa Fernandez...
