Hello and welcome back to another cigar review. Today I am reviewing a cigar from my Standard & Twain membership pack from the month of May. Please note as in all of my Standard & Twain reviews I didn’t know the maker of this cigar till after the smoke was completed. With that said let’s get to it.
1st 3rd: Black pepper, coffee bean, burnt toast and hints of molasses.
2nd 3rd: Black pepper, honey, burnt toast and cedar.
Final 3rd: Burnt toast, caramel, and cedar.
A very nice smoke to say the least. Will I be buying it again? “No.” Why you ask, well with all the other stuff coming in I just don’t have time to smoke it again. Should you try it? “Yes.”
Hello, today I am reviewing the half cookie. This is yet another exclusive from Privada Cigars so you won’t be able to purchase it anywhere else. Let’s see if it matches up with first cookie released several months ago.
None available at the time of this review.
1st 3rd: Pepper, coffee and chocolate.
2nd 3rd: Coffee, chocolate and rich tobacco.
Final 3rd: Chocolate, cocoa and cedar.
Due to the burn issues and the cigar going out constantly, I have to say pass. Too bad too, because the flavors were right on target.
Hello, today I am reviewing a cigar from one of my most favorite cigar brands. Yes maybe that makes me bias in this review but as always I promise you they are all fair. So with that said lets see what the Epernay has to offer.
1st 3rd: Slight hints of pepper, raspberry, cinnamon toast crunch. And black licorice.
2nd 3rd; Coffee bean, charcoal, peanut, burnt toast and a woodsy type flavor though very faint.
Final 3rd: Cinnamon toast crunch, coffee bean, hints of raspberry, and wood.
Yes, it’s a nice smoke. Did I love it? “No” I didn’t? Would I buy it again? Probably not. But with that said I did enjoy my time with it.
Hello, today I am smoking one of my offerings from the April Privada Cigar Club Farm Fresh Rolled cigar packs. Now I have never heard of this cigar maker before but rest assured I’m totally excited to give it a try. So without further ado let’s get at it.
No info was available at the time of this review.
1st 3rd: Chocolate, roasted coffee, cinnamon and pepper.
2nd 3rd: Roasted coffee, chocolate and cinnamon.
Final 3rd: Chocolate, cinnamon and a Reese peanut butter ceral type flavor.
Verdict: A complete winner! Find it and smoke it you’ll thank me later!
Hello today I am reviewing the second mystery cigar from my April Standard & Twain cigar club pack. As states before at the time of the smoke I had no idea what the name was and didn’t check it until I finished my cigar. Was it good? Let’s find out.
Filler: Dominican, Peru, Nicaragua
1st 3rd: Slight pepper and earth.
2nd 3rd: Cedar and earth.
Final 3rd: Earth and cedar.
Verdict: I’m sorry to report but this cigar was a just a bust for me. Lack of flavors and just a boring smoke killed it for me. Would I buy it again “No!” Enough said.
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.
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.
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.
Binder / Filler: Unavailable at time of review.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Good day or Good evening depends on when your reading this. Finally the weather is beginning to warm up here in the East coast. With that said I’m finally back at my favorite review site. Today I bring you a cigar by AJ Fernandez. Hoping it’s a good one so let’s find out.
Binder / Filler: Nicaraguan
Price: Round $9.00
1st 3rd: Pepper, coffee and mint.
2nd 3rd: Wood and earth.
Final 3rd: Earth and wood.
Final Verdict: Sorry but I have to say”No!” I’m not a big Connecticut guy first of all. Also I really didn’t like the flavor profile and found it more as choir to finish this cigar.
