None as usual as Privada doesn’t usually release info and sometimes just gives you hints.

2nd 3rd: Continued with the pepper, coffee, chocolate flavors but was joined with sweet molasses, and cedar.

Final 3rd: The most sort out cigar finished off with chocolate cedar and molasses.

Verdict: Well I have to say that I kind of expected more after all the hype it got. That’s not to say it wasn’t a pleasant smoke but it definitely didnt live up to the hype. It did though get my thumbs up approval.

Gotham Cigar Club

Today I am reviewing Gotham Cigar Club. Please note that I was not compensated at all for this review except for the free cigar pack. My reviews are always honest and unbias. So with that behind us let’s get into it.

As you can see this club is full of goodies and I found an assortment of nice cigars inside. The package wasn’t as nice as other cigar clubs but none the less they were safe and sound with no damage done during shipping to it’s contents.

As you can see above the monthly club has various packages which vary the satisfy your monthly cigar allowance. I can say that the selection is pretty nice so you’ll definitely get your moneys worth.

This is a close-up of what I received so as you can see it truly is a pretty nice selection.

Should you join? Well I’ll leave that up to you. If you’d like more information they can be found at https://www.gothamcigars.com/cigar-club/

Cigar Obsession First 3rd

Today I bring you the Cigar Obsession 1st third. I received this cigar in the My Cigar Pack which they gave me to review. So without further ado let’s get into it.

Cigar Make Up:

Size: 6 X 52

Wrapper: Sumatra

Binder: Nicaraguan

Filler: Nicaraguan/ Honduran

Price Point: Around $8.00

1st 3rd: Consisted of pepper, earth and cedar.

2nd 3rd: Not much changed and tell the truth I pretty much am getting bored with it.

Final 3rd: Sad to report but again not much changed since I first lit it and no new flavors to report.

Cigar Apparatus:

Final Verdict:

As I always state this is one mans opinion and you should always make your own before drawing one. With that said, I didn’t like this cigar and would not recommend it as a pickup. I felt that it was a boring smoke that brought little to the table in regards to keeping me interested in it. So with that said.

Until Next Time
