This 6.5×54 stick offered a loose bound foot with no wrapper on the last inch or so, and came in a cedar sleeve. It gave some interesting flavors directly after the light, with a very loose draw that came up to a normal resistance once the burn point hit the … Continue reading →
I’m not sponsored by cigar.com or anything, but just have to say this latest catalog that came today has what I consider to be a GREAT sampler deal, especially for anyone relatively new! Not only is the price very good at $199 for 60 sticks – but they are ALL … Continue reading →
This 5.1×43 stick offered a surprisingly long cool smoke time of 1 hour to the band! If you prefer your smoke a little warmer you could easily take it another 15 min. Burn and draw were flawless all the way down, with a
This 6.5×50 torpedo stick had a very soft supple wrapper showing the underlying leaves. Burn and draw were both excellent, with perfect performance all the way down. Flavors started out mild and grassy, progressing to a smooth creamy nutty flavor. Body was mild-medium with a very clean short finish offering … Continue reading →

Famous Smoke Shop Honduran Selection 5000 Cigar Reviewby Bryan Glynn, August 5, 2009
