Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Superior

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Superior

The Davidoff Superior is a good cigar, but I really wish the flavor profile present in the final third was present throughout. If it was, the cigar could take on that Superior title. I think it will be well received by some, but for those that are looking for a bit more complexity and lighter, more complex flavors will find it underwhelming.

Personal Beer Review: Parallel 49 / Blindman Zombies Ate My Brewery!

Personal Beer Review: Parallel 49 / Blindman Zombies Ate My Brewery!

Usually when I see brewery collaborations like the Parallel 49 / Blindman Zombies Ate My Brewery!, I stay clear, as I haven't had enjoyable experiences in the past. This collaboration between Parallel 49 Brewing and Blindman Brewing hits all on some great high notes, satisfying my palate with great citrus complexity that doesn't become fatiguing.

Personal Cigar Review: Aganorsa Leaf Signature Series Robusto

Personal Cigar Review: Aganorsa Leaf Signature Series Robusto

Overall, the Aganorsa Leaf Signature Series Robusto was an average experience as the cigar dropped in enjoyment as it went along. I was hoping for something a bit more special from this line but it didn't materialize. For those that are fans of Aganorsa tobacco, it's worth a try to see what your thoughts are.

Personal Beer Review: Modern Times Fortunate Islands

Personal Beer Review: Modern Times Fortunate Islands

The Modern Times Fortunate Islands is a mash up of two different styles, and I wasn't sure I was going to enjoy it. I'm always eager to try new beers that push the style envelope, and this beer does a great job of it.

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Year of the Pig

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Year of the Pig

The Davidoff Year of the Pig is a strong cigar in terms of strength and it produces filling and stronger flavors as well. It has some body to it which is present from start to finish, and much more so than past Davidoff releases. If you are looking for a lighter offering that is more flavor focused like years past, this might not be your cup of tea.

Personal Beer Review: Collective Arts Liquid Art Fest

Personal Beer Review: Collective Arts Liquid Art Fest

The Collective Arts Liquid Art Fest has a bold tropical fruit aroma, but ends up being very balanced. I found the flavor profile didn't do much for me in terms of complexity, but this could easily be a crushable session beer in the summer season.

Personal Beer Review: St-Ambroise Black IPA

Personal Beer Review: St-Ambroise Black IPA

The St-Ambroise Black IPA is different, but interesting and enjoyable. The profile is an unusual combination of IPA and classic Irish stout flavors that ends up working well.

Personal Cigar Review: La Palina Goldie Cañonazo

Personal Cigar Review: La Palina Goldie Cañonazo

The La Palina Goldie Cañonazo is a terrific size and it delivers enjoyable flavors throughout. It has depth and complexity and there is transitioning present as well. If you have loved recent Goldie releases, this will be another one to your liking.
