  • phaedron

    I facebooked it, and my favorite was the Iconic Leaf Recluse review, which prompted an intensive search to find where the heck I could buy these things. I was successful, and they are indeed wonderful.

  • joelala

    I love the pardon 1926 number 6 review. My favorite cigar to date.

  • dvillan87

  • tglynnus

    I “Liked” on Facebook.
    My favorite was the Rocky Patel Vintage 2003 Cameroon Churchill. I love aged cigars and the Patel Vintage line is among my absolute favorites. This stick is the one from that line I have not yet tried, and I have it lined up for New Year’s. It was the first time I have heard a cigar described as smelling like “fresh dog poop”, but you pushed through that and gave an excellent review that made me very excited to try the cigar despite the pre-light aroma. Thanks for that and every review of 2012, looking forward to many more in 2013!!!

  • pinot45

    I “liked” on Facebook. My favorite review was Perdomo Champagne Noir Figurado.

  • mbuckwash

    I liked on Facebook! My favorite review was the Iconic Leaf Recluse in Toro cigar because I actually had the same stick prior to the review and experienced the same as you, Bryan! It made me feel as though I wasn’t too far off from some of your reviews!

  • DairyLandCigarFan414

    Favorite review? Got to be the Rocky Patel Olde World Reserve Corojo Lancero. First cigar I ever smoked was a Rocky Patel, met him and person and very fond of this cigar size and the flavors. Like on facebook and tweeted…

  • puffrey

    Liked on Facebook.

    My favorite was the Rocky Patel Vintage 1999 Connecticut Churchill because you reviewed on my birthday, I just happen to have one in the humi so I smoked it! Your awesome review left me no other choice!

  • FB liked! My fav was the MUWAT in December…because you “borked” the video. That was great…not from your stand point but we can all relate to doing something like that.

  • chief791

    I hit the face book button. my fav review was of the Genesis the project by Ramon Bueso. Your review was almost the same exact thoughts that i had of this cigar. It is now one of my top 10 smokes.

  • steve c

    I hit the facebook button. My favorite review of the year was the smoked ribs. I’m a big rib guy and i never thought i could do them at home until i saw that video. Thanks for a great year Bryan!

  • shawnmc77

    I liked on facebook. My favorite is probably the Drew Estate Liga Undercrown Gran Toro review. Just cause I love that stick.

  • evenstill

    I used the facebook button. There are several that I really like including the Drew Estate Liga Undercrown and the Drew Estate Java Maduro, but I’d have to say that my favorite review is the Don Lino Africa. This cigar was a very pleasant surprise when I tried it. Very nice smoke.

  • weimerad

    I both liked on Facebook and Tweeted. The review I liked the most was one you did in the rain and then a lightning strike hit and scared the crap out of you. It was funny watching you try to do the review during a storm. I don’t even remember the cigar you were smoking

  • DDDyyy

    Save the best for last ->Bradley Maxx Brazil Robusto. Was quite entertaining watching you sniff a vacuum cleaner bag and “lick” an ash tray.

    Tweeted @Stool_Pigeon.

  • Bruiser

    Liked on the Facebook. Favorite review: Maldonado Mogul Cigar Review. It’s the 21st century cigar manufacturers, get your website updated!

  • Wilson

    “Liked”. My favorite was the Rocky Patel 2003 Cameroon. Saw the review, bought it at a local shop, and loved it. Smoked it on Independence Day while floating down the New River in NC. Best day of 2012!

  • new2sticks

    Shared on twitter. The A. Flores 1975 Serie Privada Capa Maduro was my favorite because you took one for the team and saved me a night of misery.

  • jeffk

    Punch Bareknuckle Belicoso Facebook like – love the name and your review made me aware of this cigar and want to try it!

  • jpculp57

    Facebook. My favorite review was the one where you dropped the ash on your lap! I loved it, but can’t remember which cigar it was. It had me cracking up and I had to show it to one of my employees who’s an avid cigar man. We were both laughing because we’ve all had it happen and know how you felt!

    My second favorite was the CAO Soprano because you saved me from spending a chunk of change on what appears to be an overpriced cigar. Thanks for all you do!

  • suitcasejon

    Liked on Facebook and my favorite review was the Drew Estate ACID blondie belicoso review. Your review was spot on. First time I had it was in New Orleans on bourbon street. Booze, sweet cigar and seductive ladies. What more can you ask for? Cheers.

  • jungjae510

    liked on fb, patel vintage 1990…made me feel confident that I would like it… and I did

  • Polish_Infidel

    I facebook liked. My favorite was the Drew Estate Acid Toast video. Not because it’s a good cigar. On the contrary, it’s too sweet and you can tell that you didn’t like this cigar in particular and that you don’t appear to be fond of infused cigars in general. Too top it off, the review goes from uncomfortable to painful as you then proceed to have a huge chunk of ash fall on your laugh. Thanks for falling on your internet sword so to speak for us on that review. Love the site.

  • sdh3237

    Tweeted. My favorite review was for the Don Pablo cigar. I sent it in and enjoyed seeing your take on it.

  • guarnacciad

    I liked on Facebook and my favorite was a hard decision between the burger and the Gurkha ghost asura.

    I liked on Facebook, to me the Warlock Toro cigars. I first saw it at my local store, it was the only desirable to me at that store. if wouldn’t be because of your review I was able to find a winner. GUYS STUFF it definitely was awesome, it made the highlight of my Christmas dinner. Can’t wait to see what the next year hold…

  • PapaLad

    I liked on Facebook. My favorite was the Drew Estate Liga Undercrown Gran Toro Cigar Review (March), which has become my favorite cigar.

  • Christopher

    My favorite review was the Rocky Patel Vintage 1990 Churchill. Reasons-strong wind blowing in the background causing the tiki torches to clang, an ash drop “son of a…”, day changing into night and even a wardrobe change part way through. Not to mention the fact it got me hyped on the 1990 Vintage… an awesome smoke.

    I liked on facebook. Thanks Bryan.

  • mfox93

    Liked on Facebook. My favorite review was the Padron 80 Year, I like the way you really described the flavors and strength, made me feel like I was smoking it.

  • shonky2112

    Liked on Facebook. I liked the PDR Flores y Rodriguez Cabinet Seleccion Capa Habano Toro Cigar Review – 1. because it was the classic ridiculously long name, but 2. Mostly because of the tip in the middle about drawing. Helped me a lot.

  • dbfr181

    My favorite review was MUWAT! I heard a lot of hype about this cigar but was waiting on your review before
    I bought it. Love the site! Happy Holidays!

  • Studio 54

    I “follow” you on Twitter. The review I liked most our of the year 2012 was the: Gurkha Ghost Asura Cigar Review. I read the review and then went out and bought some for my personal use and loved it due to the in depth and concise to the point reviews (easy to understand and comprehend) you do all the time. Thanks.

  • juf100

    Liked on FB. Fave review: C&C LRMD, because I had been waiting for it….

  • nhsmoker

    Liked on facebook. My favorite review of the year was the very recent Padron 1964 Anniversario Corona Natural review because the padron anniversario is a personal favorite of mine although I always smoke the maduro and this review convinced me to revisit the natural. All that being said all of your reviews have been fantastic and informative. Thank you

  • ljarvis524

    Shared mine on twitter. My favorite review of the year was the Pinar Del Rio Flores Y Rodriguez Cabinet Seleccion Cabinet Capa Maduro Toro. Thanks

  • jon.crappel

    Favorite review… That’s hard because there are so many. But I found this site late in the year, so I guess my pool is probably smaller. Anywho, I liked and tweeted the Padron 1964 Anniversario Corona Natural Cigar Review. It sounds like it will be a great smoke! Thanks, Bryan!

  • primox1

    Favorite might have to be the Padron Series Churchill, not because of the cigar, but bc you ramble on about other topics relating to cigars. I find your tips and thoughts relating to cigars very interesting. Happy New Year Bryan!
