CAO Vision

Hello, today I am reviewing the limited release Vision from CAO. The last time they released this cigar was way back in 2007, which I reviewed. If my memory serves me well I thoroughly enjoyed the 2007 one and hoping to get the same results today. So without further ado let’s get into it. PS if you are lucky to purchase a box you also get a high tech humidor which is greatly improved from the 1st one. It is way cool so happy hunting.

Cigar Makeup:

Size: 7 x50

Wrapper: Cameroon

Binder & Filler: Ecuador / Nicaragua

1st 3rd: Spice, coffee bean, molasses, chocolate and a mineral type flavor.

2nd 3rd: Coffee bean, molasses, chocolate, wood but I must say upfront is what’s hurting this stick is that weird mineral taste that to say plainly “SUCKS!”

Final 3rd: Leather, pepper and yes oh yes that nasty mineral taste.

Smoking Apparatus:

Final Thoughts: Definitely have to say pass. I truly dislikes the experience mainly due to the mineral nasty taste and the $19.00 dollar price tag. Pass you’ll thank me later.

Until Next Time

Black History Month Cigar by Privada Cigars

Hello, today I’m reviewing the first known cigar to date in honor of Black History Month. The cigar was for sale through Privada Cigars with the proceeds going directly to a scholarship fund. If you’re interested head over to Privada Cigars store if they still have any left. So with the history behind us let’s see what it has to offer.

Cigar Info:

Size: Torpedo

Wrapper: Habano

Binder / Filler: Nicaraguan

Price: $12.00

1st 3rd: Pepper, cinnamon and cedar.

2nd 3rd: Continues with the cinnamon, cedar and joined with faint hints of earth.

Final 3rd: Cedar and earth.

Smoking Apparatus:

Verdict: I truly wanted to like this cigar but found it to be just average. That’s not to say that it’s an awful cigar. I guess I was truly hoping for more in the flavor department but it came up short. I’m not one for a basic wood and earthy cigar thus the reason I found it to be a boring smoke. Even with the cinnamon hits it just never really materialized for me. Please note that it’s one man’s opinion and as always you should draw your own conclusions

Elmo “Red Laugh” by Privada

Hello, today I am reviewing the “Elmo” from Privada cigar club. This is another collectors cigar put out by them that is very much sought after. Kind of a spin off of the Cookie Monster they released in 2020. As in most of their cigars not much history is available on it so I’m not even going to guess on it. So without further ado here’s my personal take on it.

Cigar Info: None at this time of the review available.

1st 3rd: Tiny bit of spice accompanied with dark chocolate and peanuts.

2nd 3rd: Dark chocolate, blackberry, and peanuts.

Final 3rd: Continues with the dark chocolate some coffee and black cherry on the finish.

Verdict: It’s a great cigar and well worth the pickup. As of this time if your a member or know one it’s still available. I do recommend that if you can get one do so, you’ll thank me later!

Standard & Twain Cigar Club

https://standardandtwain.com

Hello, today I am reviewing another cigar club called Standard & Twain. This one though is like no other in that you receive mystery cigars for you to try out. Yes, you will eventually know what cigars you are smoking but the idea behind this company is suppose to broaden your pallet.

So here’s how it works, 1st each month you get either 2 or 4 cigars a month (You pick the subscription). Then you receive it in a plain envelope pictured above. Inside that envelope you get this package which included a message to you and an envelope. containing 2 to 4 cigars.

Both of the cigars have a numbering system located on the tags at the bottom of them.

Once you smoke one you rate the cigar and then scan the tag with your phone. You will then be sent to their website where the cigar you just smoked will be revealed. No, I won’t let the cat out of the bag on these cigars but I will tell you that this company is awesome!

What I can tell you though is that I haven’t smoked a cigar that I didn’t liked since joining.

Like what your reading we’ll follow the link and join, you’ll thank me later!

Please not I received no compensation for my review and I am not affiliated with their company.
