Paul Stulac Angel

Hello, today I am reviewing the second installment of Paul Stulac “Angel” from my Privada Cigar Club Farm Rolled pack. Truly hoping this will be as good or better than the first. I have to say I really enjoyed the first so it will be hard for this guy to beat it.

Cigar Makeup:

No information available at the time of this review. Just that it’s a robusto and I believe it measures 5X50.

1st 3rd: Wow just wow this baby is off to a fantastic start. Rich chocolate, pepper, coffee, cocoa powder and bread.

2nd 3rd: Pepper, chocolate, bread, wood, earth, cocoa powder hints of blackberry. And to my surprise and pleasure mint chocolate chips.

Final 3rd: Chocolate brownie, mint chocolate chip, pepper and bread.

Final Verdict:

Find it and smoke it! Enough said.

Primordial Cigars ZHB AKA: Cookie Dough by Zeal Cigars

Hello, and welcome back to yet another Stew cigar review. Today I bring you the Primordial AKA The Cookie Dough by the good folks of Zeal Cigars. Please note that I purchased these cigars with my own money and have no affiliation to them. So with that behind us I’m truly looking for a good smoke but 1st let’s find out.

Cigar Makeup:

Wrapper: Connecticut

Binder / Filler: Unavailable at time of review.

Size: Toro

Price: $55.95 for a ten pack

Note: This cigar is not flavored.

1st 3rd. Slight and I mean slight hit of pepper, brown sugar caine, and yes cookie dough.

2nd 3rd: Cookie dough, coffee beans, floral, and bread.

Final 3rd: Cookie dough, brown sugar caine and peanut.

Smoking Apparatus:

Final Verdict:

Yes I would buy these again. Though as stated previously I am not a Connecticut guy. I state “Yes” because of the flavors this stick has to offer. Add the price point and it’s a no brainer. Pair it with coffee and you have a winning combination. Want some of your own then head over to https://zealcigars.com/product/primordial-cigars-zhb-10-cigars/and tell them Stew sent you. LOL though they’ll probably ask you who the heck Stew is.

Here is their take on it. Enjoy!

Twin Pines 1:16 AM by Blanco

Well it’s time to start to review some offerings from the Privada Cigar club April box. Today I am reviewing the Twin Pines by Blanco. Haven’t really to my knowledge smoked too many from this blender. With that stated, I look forward to seeing what it has to offer. So with that behind us let’s get into it!

Cigar Makeup:

No info at the time of this review available. Except that it’s a box press that looks to be a robusto 5X50.

1st 3rd: a zesty powerful flavor that is eventually joined with the taste of pine. A short time later these flavors were accompanied by burnt toast and cocoa ending with a hint of pepper.

2nd 3rd: Pine, burnt toast, that zesty flavor, cocoa and white pepper. So far a nice smoke but I have to say the zesty flavor is truly ruining it for me. Hopefully it subsides and disappears in the final 3rd.

Final 3rd: That zesty flavor, pine, burnt toast and cocoa.

Smoking Apparatus:

Final Verdict: Sorry to report but I have to say pass on this one. The zesty type flavor which was overpowering killed the experience for me. Yes this cigar had potential but due to the zesty overpowering flavor it’s a no go.

Until Next Time

L’ATELIER IMPORTS – L’ATELIER SELECTION SPÉCIALE

Hello, today I am reviewing a cigar from my April package from Standard & Twain cigar club. As explained before these cigars come unbanded and no info is available until you reveal it’s name and maker from the bar code provided to you. As stated before I like this method as I believe it broadens your horizons when looking for a new cigar to smoke. Let’s face it without joining this club I as well as many others would probably just skip over these sticks if observed banded. Now before you say it, Yes not all of them but many of them.

Basically what I am trying to say is people like what they like and usually don’t purchase outside their comfort zone. This kind of club curbs that behavior as they are mystery cigars. Are they all winners well no. But with that said some are thus giving you new cigars to add to your smoking experience that you would have probably given a chance. Is it for everyone? No, but it’s an option, and in my book options are always good.

Enough babbling let’s get to the smoke already 🤪.
