Cigar Review: Southern Draw Code Duello Kudzu Perfecto



Cigar smoking is a social event that gives us the chance to connect with others from all different walks of life. If your local cigar shop is anything like mine, on a daily basis we solve the world’s problems, and then we start all over again the next day. During these sessions we have a tendency to share cigars we like with each other.

Davidoff Yamasá Cigar Review
Cigar Review: Davidoff Yamasá Toro


Although it is not a region known for its tobacco, Davidoff has been growing cigar tobacco in the Yamasá region of the Dominican Republic for over 20 years, and have now decided to use the Yamasá leaf in the newest addition to the "black label" line. Master Blender Henke Kelner has put a lot of care into making this cigar turn out just right, doing everything from raising the pH of the soil in Davidoff's Yamasá fields to having climate controlled storage for the tobacco to be stored and dried.

Cigar Review: RoMa Craft Neanderthal H-Town Lancero (Stogies Exclusive)



Stogies’ H-Town Lancero Series has had many great cigars, but it seems like the last several have been among the best and would be a hard act to follow. Skip Martin’s RoMa Craft Tobac has managed to continue the high standards set by earlier H-Town releases with his Neanderthal H-Town Lancero. Full bodied and flavorful, the Neanderthal H-Town is unlike any other cigar in the series of lanceros made exclusively for Stogies World Class Cigars in Houston, Texas.

The Venganza is a full bodied cigar coming from Erik Espinosa’s La Zona Factory in Estelí. With its full body and flavor, the Venganza is likely to be the company’s most successful release yet.
