Cigar Tasting- Partagas 1845

Partagas 1845 is an exciting new take on one of the world’s most iconic premium cigar brands. 

As the first new collection to follow the critically-acclaimed Benji Menendez Partagas Master Series, Partagas 1845 is a departure from the traditional Cameroon-wrapped expressions of the brand. This new collection embodies 167 years of heritage and expert cigar making. In fact, the legendary Benji Menendez called Partagas 1845 “one of the most significant blends I have ever been involved in developing.”

Wrapper: Ecuadoran Habano
Lustrous, with a unique color and hearty texture, the viso wrapper reveals distinct flavor nuances at different occasions during the smoking experience.

Binder: Connecticut Habano
Extremely sweet and extremely strong, this proprietary binder spent nine years in development. A product of General Cigar’s dedicated research and development initiative, it imparts an optimal balance to the wrapper and filler tobacco.

Filler: Dominican & Nicaraguan Ligero & Seco
Cultivated in three distinct growing areas, select Nicaraguan fillers are aged in Dominican rum barrels, a proprietary process which enhances their aroma.

This delicious cigar is available in the following 5 sizes:
  • Corona Extra Size: 4 1/2 x 46
  • Robusto Size: 5 1/2 x 49
  • Gigante Size: 6 x 60
  • Toro Grande Size: 6 1/4 x 54
  • Double Corona Size: 7 1/4 x 54
Partagas 1845 is full-flavored with a medium-bodied taste profile. Bearing hints of coffee and cocoa, this unique smoking experience sits firmly between the mild and aromatic flavor of classic Partagas and the strong, sweet taste of Partagas Black Label.

All of the tobaccos used in Partagas 1845 undergo lengthy aging and fermentation. As such, this rich and complex smoke is destined to appeal to the most discriminating of premium cigar smokers.

Cigar Tasting- La Flor Dominicana DL-700

I reached into my humidor today and grabbed a cigar that I used to smoke religiously and a brand that not a lot of people know about- but should! The La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero.

La Flor Dominicana was founded by Litto Gomez in 1996 in Santiago, Dominican Republic.Over the years they have developed an impressive portfolio of cigar lines and new cigar shapes- the wildly popular chisel. The company was started and is currently owned by cigar maker Litto Gomez Diez, who was called by Cigar Aficionado "arguably the most innovative mind in the cigar business." The name of the brand was inspired by the flower of the tobacco plant which signifies that the growing cycle is complete and the plant is ready for reproduction.
Introduced in 2003 the La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero (DL) line features 2 Ligero leafs. The Ligero leaf is found near the top of each tobacco plant. Slower to mature than the seco leaves found at the middle of the plant or the easy-burning volado leaves at the bottom, ligero leaves are characterized by a coarse texture and produce smoke with a potent, spicy taste. While most full bodied cigars contain 1 ligero Leaf this cigar has 2- double the fun!

At the core of this great cigar is a robust blend of Dominican tobacco including 1 ligero leaf. These leafs are bound by another Dominican ligero leaf and finished off with a very oily and flavorful Ecuadorian sun-grown wrapper.

Enough with the boring history and botany lessons lets get down to business and how it smokes.

This is a FULL flavored cigar with excellent construction and complexity. There is A LOT of creamy flavors in this cigar! It has a very satisfying spice that will tingle your lips as you smoke it along with some great cedar, coffee, nuts, cocoa, and a touch of molasses.

This is a must try and the best part about this super premium cigar is the price! Averaging $7 a stick this is a cigar that will not leave your pockets empty!

Happy Smoking Friends!

Coming Soon: Cohiba Commador

Hello Cohiba Fans,

Cohiba is one of, if not, the most popular name in the cigar industry. Even non-cigar smoker recognize the name Cohiba. This legendary cigar

maker is releasing a brand new line of cigars called the Cohiba Comador.

Fittingly, the biggest name in hip-hop has teamed up with Cohiba to release this special-edition smoke in a unique partnership. Jay-Z released a statement saying, "I worked with Cohiba because I knew they'd take my vision of a luxury cigar and bring it to life in the right way. We took our time working on this, to get the blend to exactly where I wanted it to be. Comador looks and tastes the way I think a cigar should."

Cohiba's master blenders spent two years developing Comador's elegant taste which is derived from the finest tobacco. Only proprietary leaves from the most acclaimed Caribbean and Central American growing regions is worthy of comprising the blend of filler tobacco. This blend is then wrapped using a hand-selected Connecticut Broadleaf binder and wrapped with the Comador's Crown jewel- The Connecticut Havana wrapper.

The Connecticut Havana wrapper is the most rare and most expensive wrapper on the market. In the 1700's Cuban tobacco seeds were brought and acclimatized in New England. Through 20 years of rigorous selection and breeding, the seed has been refined and polished by Cohiba's  team of agronomists. The Comador marks the first time this leaf is used in a cigar.

I am happy to say that we have been selected by General Cigars to carry this product and I will have more information soon.

For Pre-Ordering information, please e-mail me at This will be a first come first serve basis.

Happy Smoking,

The Royal Line Up- Regius Arbiter Elegantiae

In Latin “Regius” is translated to mean “King”. We present you a regal smoking experience:  

Regius Arbiter Elegantiae

Gaius Petronius Arbiter (AD27) was a Roman writer and courtier for Emperor Nero who devoted himself to a life of pleasure. Yet far from being an ordinary, vulgar profligate, he became known as an accomplished voluptuary. Showing capacity for outrageous indulgence, he was looked upon by Nero to be the absolute authority on questions of taste (arbiter elegantiae), especially with the science of alchemy.

This little known but rapidly rising brand presents an unrivaled smoking experience through stringent quality standards, genuine enthusiasm and an unwavering dedication to the craft of producing premium hand-rolled cigars. Five generations of Cuban tobacco heritage and experience combined with what is widely recognized as one of the best organized, well equipped and bea

utiful cigar factories in the world exemplifies Nicaraguan dedication to producing superb and reliable hand-made cigars, to rival those made anywhere in the world.

Each Regius cigar is rolled at Plasencia Cigars S.A. and made with tobacco from all over Nicaragua. Regius uses every part of the
plant with various amounts of age (up to 15 years old) and is then covered in shade grown wrappers. For the past few years they have been only available in the U.K., and until recently, they have been one of very few non-Cuban brands to not be sold in the U.S. market.

Using all Nicaraguan tobacco this line seems to taste more like a Cuban than a Nicaraguan. Still fairly new to the U.S. market these amazing cigars already have a 91 rating from Cigar Aficionado and a 95 from Cigar Journal saying:

“ The Robusto in a pretty milk coffee brown wrapper starts with abundant wood aromas underlaid by a copious delicate sweetness. Coffee notes underscore its masculine, aroma and balanced character. Become more intense during the smoke; medium to full body.”

Padron 1964 Anniversary Diplomatico Maduro- #4 Cigar of 2013!

I absolutely have to write about the following cigar as this line is easily one of my personal  favorite cigars! I can not pass on an opportunity to smoke a Padron 1964 Anniversary Diplomatico Maduro- and for good reason! Cigar Aficionado has this ranked as their #4 cigar of the year with this to say:

"The Padrón 1964 Anniversary Series line debuted in 1994 to celebrate 30 years of Padrón cigars. It was a hit from the beginning, and nearly 20 years after its launch it remains one of the most popular and highly rated cigar lines on the market. The Diplomatico is the largest of the Anniversary Series cigars, save for the rarely seen “A.” In maduro wrapper, it’s a dark, box-pressed smoke with a perfect draw that layers the palate with copious amounts of complex flavors including nuts and toast, with a sweet hint of raisin on the finish."

Padron was the original Nicaraguan Cigar producers and their Anniversary and Family Reserve lines are nothing short of masterpieces. The demand is so great; they instituted a cap on the number of cigars they produce each year to ensure the hands of time are not rushed and that careful attention is paid to each cigar coming off the rolling tables. Every year Padron is highly ranked on top 25 Cigars due to their commitment to quality, flavor, and construction.

A must have for any cigar enthusiast- in fact I am going to smoke one right now as my mouth is watering as I am writing this.

Happy smoking my friends!

Davidoff Nicaragua- #3 Cigar of 2013

Hello Cigar Fans,

Today we focus on the #3 cigar of 2013- Davidoff Nicaragua. As seen this blog post, I rated this cigar very highly and for good reason!

Cigar Aficionado gave it a 95 rating with this to say about it:

"The Toro was our favorite, showing complexity, elegance and balance, with floral notes, hints of coffee and leather and a very long finish. This is a beautiful, elegant smoke that’s a worthy addition to the storied Davidoff name."

This mild bodied creamy cigar has a great 
complexity of flavors including a mild amount of 
spice, earth, and bitter sweet chocolate. This cigar 
has been my new addiction and we have a hard 
time keeping it on the shelves.
