Southern Draw Rose of Sharon
Cigar Review: Southern Draw Rose of Sharon



Last year released its first Connecticut cigar with the QuickDraw Connecticut, and since the release of that cigar, many have wondered if there would be a Connecticut addition to their core line of cigars. Finally, there is one, with the release of the Southern Draw Rose of Sharon. As with previous cigars in the core line, the company is keeping with its theme of flower plant name, while also drawing on the biblical expression that first appeared in the King James Bible in 1611...

Top Ten Cigars of 2016
Toasted Foot's Top Ten Cigars of 2016



Once again, it’s the time of the year when lists of all kinds appear, and amount them is our annual Top Ten Cigars list. It has been a very interesting year for the cigar industry. The FDA regulations seem to loom large over everything.

This made putting together this year’s Top Ten List harder to put together than in years past...

So many great cigars were released this year, and unfortunately not all of them can make our Top Ten List, but are nonetheless stand out enough to be acknowledged and shared with our readers.

Viaje Exclusivo Nicaragua
Cigar Review: Viaje Exclusivo Nicaragua



The Viaje Exclusivo began life as a personal blend for brand owner Andre Farkas, but since 2009 has become a staple in the Viaje line, with all kind of various sizes being released over the years. Now the Viaje Exclusivo gets a new Nicaraguan puro, manufactured at Casa Fernandez’s TABSA factory in Nicaragua, which sets it apart from the original line which is made in Honduras. This new medium-full to full bodied addition to the Viaje Exclusivo line surpasses its original version, and sure to become a favorite of Viaje fans.

Andalino by JRE Tobacco
Cigar Review: Andalino by JRE Tobacco


Julio R. Eiroa (father of Christian) released several new cigars at this year’s IPCPR, but the one that really stands out is the Aladino. Julio is also a legend in the tobacco industry, having grown tobacco in Honduras since 1963 and being famous for his original Corojo tobacco that formed the basis for Camacho’s success. With JRE Tobacco, it is being called a “crop to shop” operation, with every step in the process from farming, production and distribution being controlled by JRE Tobacco.

IPCPR 2016 Coverage – Day 2

Today seemed like the longest day of the IPCPR Trade Show. Maybe it’s the time change or the late night, but it’s been a very long day that got off on the wrong foot when my Prometheus lighter crapped out. There was no saving it. I knew I should have brought a Xikar, so on my walk to the Sands Expo area I stopped by the Davidoff of Geneva kiosk and bought a...
