Personal Cigar Review: Warped Serie Gran Reserva 1988

Personal Cigar Review: Warped Serie Gran Reserva 1988

Overall, the Warped Serie Gran Reserva 1988 was pretty average and dropped down in enjoyment as it went along. If you're a fan of Warped or like cedar in your cigars, it's worth a try. For me, I'll be in no hurry to revisit it, but would smoke it of one was handed to me.

Personal Beer Review: Base Camp S'more Stout

Personal Beer Review: Base Camp S’more Stout

The Base Camp S'more Stout is enjoyable, but doesn't stand out from the crowd for flavor complexity or intensity. Given the name of the beer, S'More Stout, I was anticipating big marshmallow, graham and chocolate flavors.

Personal Cigar Review: M by Macanudo Toro

Personal Cigar Review: M by Macanudo Toro

While the M by Macanudo Toro won't appeal to traditional premium cigar smokers, it definitely could to those that like the flavored stuff. If this cigar provided more of the advertised flavor in the smoking experience, I could see going back to it, but with the profile I experienced, I don't have any interest in revisiting it.

Personal Cigar Review: Army of Angel's

Personal Cigar Review: Army of Angel’s

Army of Angel's is a very strong cigar. This is not going to be a cigar that many can smoke and handle, and I believe it is intended to appeal to the strong cigar lovers. I think this is the best release to the market that has had Florida Sun Grown tobacco in the blend, and I also think it is one of the best Medio Tiempo releases from AGANORSA Leaf.

Personal Beer Review: Khoffner Tobacco Is In My Blood

Personal Beer Review: Khoffner Tobacco Is In My Blood

I think the Khoffner Tobacco Is In My Blood is better than the overall score might indicate. Although it's very outside the flavor map of a milk stout, the beer itself is still going to have a lot of appeal to beer geeks if only because of it's surprising profile.

Personal Cigar Review: Black Label Trading Company Santa Muerte 2017 Corona Gorda

Personal Cigar Review: Black Label Trading Company Santa Muerte 2017 Corona Gorda

For those that are fans of what comes out of Fabrica Oveja Negra, they'll find something they recognize and can enjoy in the Black Label Trading Company Santa Muerte 2017 Corona Gorda. For me, the profile was a bit too linear and I would prefer a bit more complexity as I found the profile to lose my attention as it got into the second half.

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Florida Selection 2018 Limited Edition

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Florida Selection 2018 Limited Edition

The Davidoff Florida Selection 2018 Limited Edition might be one of the most unique Davidoffs I have smoked and also the strongest. The cigar builds in complexity of flavors and strength as it progresses and it is in the second third that it smokes its best. If this cigar smoked like it did in the second third throughout, I think it might be one of the best cigars I smoked all year.

Personal Beer Review: Cuvée du Château by Kasteel

Personal Beer Review: Cuvée du Château by Kasteel

The Cuvée du Château by Kasteel is an enjoyable Quadruple, that doesn't mask it's large ABV nature. I enjoyed the more complex flavors that developed as the beer warmed up, but overall I would have liked more depth and complexity.

Personal Cigar Review: Saga Short Tales Tomo V L.A.V.

Personal Cigar Review: Saga Short Tales Tomo V L.A.V.

The fact that the flavor profile of the Saga Short Tales Tomo V L.A.V. was pretty enjoyable through the first two thirds while the construction was quite poor is a testament to this blend. I would love to revisit a better constructed version to see if this cigar can really shine.
