Personal Cigar Review: Padrón 1964 Anniversary Series Maduro Exclusivo

Personal Cigar Review: Padrón 1964 Anniversary Series Maduro Exclusivo

I found the Padrón 1964 Anniversary Series Maduro Exclusivo to be a slighter better overall experience than the Natural, but it's still not something that really intrigues me as it is just a bit too heavy on the dark wood and earth to be enjoyable over the whole smoking experience. If you're a fan of the heavier wood and earth focused profiles, it's definitely something that may fit your wheelhouse.

Cigar News: Diesel Sunday Gravy Announced

Sunday Gravy will be a full-time line under Diesel, and will feature seasonally-released, Nicaraguan-forward smokes, blended and handcrafted through Diesel’s winning partnership of AJ Fernandez and Justin Andrews. Blends will be released quarterly, sold until their limited supply is deleted and offered at an unbelievable suggested retail price of less than $5.00 per cigar.

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Signature 6000

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Signature 6000

While there is a large segment of the smoking population that would enjoy this cigar, the Davidoff Signature 6000 is just a bit too basic for me. With the high price point, I just don't see returning to it, but if you're a fan of mellow Connecticut shades, it will likely be right in your wheelhouse.

Cigar News: Espinosa & Cigar Dojo Announce Psychedelic Turtle II

Psychedelic Turtle II brings back the vibrant feel and turtle-pressed shape, now boasting high-grade tobaccos from the vaults of A.J. Fernández and his northernmost factory of Ocotal, Nicaragua. This includes selections from Nicaragua's Condega, Ometepe, and Jalapa growing regions, used throughout the filler. The recipe is bound in a Jalapa leaf and finalized with a Mexican San Andrés maduro wrapper.

Cigar News: AVO Syncro Caribe Announced

The AVO Syncro Caribe focuses on the characteristics of the Caribbean. This dynamic cigar was blended to showcase a process we are calling ‘Natural Distribution’ in which the proportions of the tobaccos on any given plant is perfectly matched in the blending process. Specifically, the ratios of tobaccos from each priming are matched in the blend in all vitolas.

Cigar News: M by Macanudo Espresso Announced

The M by Macanudo portfolio will welcome its third expression in August with “M by Macanudo Espresso,” an infused cigar inspired by the luscious flavors of café con leche and café macchiato.
