Wavy Wafer

Well the long weekend is upon us and I hoping you all get in a cigar or two during it! Please don’t forget the reason for the holiday though and keep the military and their families in your prayers. We owe them all alive and deceased a great deal!

Well today I bring you the second installment of the Privada Club May box. I’ve seen and heard big things about this stick so let’s see if it passes the Stew test or not.

Cigar Makeup:

Wrapper: San Andres

Binder: Nicaragua Jalapa

Filler: Nicaragua

First 3rd: Pepper, chocolate, coffee, cedar and a flowery type flavor.

2nd 3rd: Chocolate, cedar, syrup and slight pepper.

Final 3rd: Chocolate, burnt toast, cedar and cocoa.

Smoking Apparatus:

Final Verdict: It’s a good smoke and well worth the coin for it. Will I be smoking it again, probably not even if it’s offered again on their online store. Why you ask? I just have a lot of cigars I want to try. Should you try it? Yes!

Until Next Time

Kristoff Gun Play

Hello, today I am bringing you the first cigar in the lineup from the Privada Cigar Club May box. This is an exclusive Cigar released only to Privada so if you want one you’ll have to head over to their site and see if they have any left for sale. Not sure if it’s for the May box only or not but I’ll leave that for you to find out.

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!

Until Next Time
