Prelight: I noticed a very mild cedary tobacco smell to this cigar. nothing super potent, or overwhelming. Maybe some hints of grass as well. The cold draw was firm with the grassyness to it and tobacco as well Continue reading “Herrera Esteli” »
I love Carlos Torano cigars, and more importantly the Carlos Torano 1916 Cameroon! I am a huge cameroon wrapper fan (it is #2 on my list of wrappers, right underneath Ecuadorian Sumatra) and I love the sweetness it tends to bring to the table. I could name a LONG list of cameroon wrapped cigars I love, but I will just review them instead! Anyway, this is a great cigar, so let’s get to it shall we?
Today I am reviewing one of my newest favorites, The La Herencia Cubana. This is an AJ Fernandez cigar, and I must say lately I have become a big AJ Fernandez fan!
I originally got 2 of these in a sampler, and waited for over a month to try them. So while they rested in my humidor, they kept calling my name, I would pick one up, then go, nah, i’ll smoke a Hemingway instead… Boy I wish I would have tried these earlier!

Went to one of my local B&M stores today as I sometimes like to just browse around, and low and behold I found something I just couldn’t resist! Just as the Title suggests, they had these tins with 3 Fuente Fuente OpusX Rare Estate Reserve 1992 Robustos in them. Being a cigar nut, and having smoked MANY different kinds of cigars, I have to shamefully say I have never tried an OpusX…. one of the reasons is because when I CAN find them online they are usually REALLY expensive ($23 a stick and up is what i normally find) and when I decide to pull the trigger and order one, they are all gone
So today, I pulled the trigger, and got these for $48 plus tax… I just couldn’t pass it up. A review will soon follow (after I review the Gurkha Avenger G5 I promised in an earlier post) so stay tuned!
Here are some pics and the stock info, ENJOY! Continue reading “Fuente Fuente OpusX Rare Estate Reserve 1992” »
One of my new favorites…. Not really a Gurkha fan, but I will be honest I really like this one, and you could almost like it for the box alone! I will give a review later, but for now here is the unboxing
Please forgive the mess of boxes in the background, I need to get them out of my office. Enjoy the pics, review coming soon! Continue reading “Gurkha Avenger G5” »
