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...

La Palina H-Town Lancero from Stogies of Houston
Cigar Review: La Palina H-Town Lancero (Stogies Exclusive)



Everyone that has ever been to Stogies World Class Cigars in Houston knows no other shop has such a massive collection of lanceros. Most retailers are hesitant to carry many lanceros because they don’t generally sell well outside of a few die hard fans of the vitola, but at Stogies they’re determined to get these cigars their due. So, proprietor Jorge Ahued has teamed up with ten different manufacturers to create a series of store exclusive lanceros. The H-Town Lancero Series just keeps getting better with each new release.

What's In Your Humidor?: Aaron Loomis of Blind Man's Puff


Continuing on with our What’s In Your Humidor feature, we once again have brought in a Cigar Media Association board member, Aaron Loomis of Blind Man’s Puff. Unlike many cigar review sites (including ToastedFoot), all of the reviews for Blind Man’s Puff are done with the reviewers not knowing what they are smoking until the review is posted to the site. It’s an interesting concept that tries to take some of the reviewers personal biases out of the review. Aaron and the Blind Man’s Puff team run a great site that is definitely worth bookmarking on your browser.

Camacho American Barrel Aged Cigar
Cigar Review: Camacho American Barrel Aged Toro



Since their rebranding effort began, Camacho has done a great job of producing cigars that sell. The American Barrel Aged was a bit of a departure from Camacho’s more traditional offerings, but it may end up being the biggest hit of them all. This is the first Camacho cigar manufactured outside Honduras, and features a good deal of American tobacco (specifically the sweeter broadleaf variety) and the Honduran Corojo that Camacho is famous for. What really sets this cigar apart is the aging process used for the Corojo filler...
