Room 101 Johnny Tobacconaut
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.

Fuente Fuente OpusX Rosado Oscuro Oro cigar
Cigar Review: Fuente Fuente OpusX Rosado Oscuro Oro



Fuente Fuentee OpusX has become synonyms with the highest end of cigars in quality, luxury and price. Which is why the most sought after cigar of 2016 is likely to be the Fuente Fuente OpusX Rosado Oscuro Oro. Released late in 2015, with boxes of 15 containing 5 vitolas, the OpusX Rosado Oscuro is packaged in a beautiful yellow lacquered box that does more than hint at the rarity of the cigar inside.

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? By releasing a high quality cigar from one of Estelí’s hottest factories, Erik Espinosa’s La Zona Factory. Named for owner Steven Bailey’s father Mac, is yet another stellar cigar from the La Zona Factory, and should only cement Cornelius & Anthony as a boutique brand to watch.

Xikar MTX Multi Tool cigar cutter
Product Review: Xikar MTX Multi Tool



Despite what some people think, not all cigar cutters are made the same. Yes, any sharp double bladed cutter will do in a pinch, but a cheep cutter just doesn’t handle the day-in-day-out use of an avid cigar lover. Xikar has managed to make a name for itself by not only making high quality cigar accessories, but guaranteeing them for life. Yet, of all the products in the Xikar line perhaps the most impressive is the MTX Multi Tool.

Drew Estate has built their reputation on broadleaf tobacco with the Liga Privada. So what happens when Willy Herrera uses broadleaf for the first time since joining Drew Estate? The Herrera Esteli TAA Exclusive, a full bodied and flavorful cigar that makes good use of the both Connecticut Broadleaf and Brazilian Mata Fina tobaccos to create a mix of earth and sweetness. Drew Estate fans are sure to snap this cigar the second it hits the shelves, and it’s actually good enough to justify it.
