Di Fazio Picoso Double Robust Cigar Review

This 5×60 stick offers a deep brown wrapper with minimal veins, tight seams, a soft velvety feel and a very firm solid pack with an oily tobacco aroma. First light shows a tight draw with minimal smoke output, smooth oily tobacco flavors and a long tobacco finish. The first third brings a better draw with good smoke output. Flavors are a medium bodied smooth oily creamy textured slightly sweet earth with the same on the long finish. The 2nd third changes slightly morphing the tobacco flavor to a soft leather but on the light side. Ending at 1:25 the last third showed little change, just getting deeper in the aftertaste. Thank you to DiFazioCigars.com for providing this sample for review!

I live in the Northeast, and anyone who is familiar with this section of the country will attest to how miserably cold and snowy it was this past winter.

January 29th however, was one of those infrequent “mild” winter days. I think it got to 32, but it was sunny and a good day for a fine cigar. So I carved a path thru the backyard snow, had a seat and toasted one up. Got a little lonely about 1/2 way thru the smoke so I made me a “Cigar Buddy”. The two of us chatted for some time, although I think I did most of the talking. No backtalk, no arguments, just pure camaraderie.

Unfortunately, it’s now spring and my little Cigar Buddy is no longer with me. But, I sense there will come another day in the not to distant future when I will once again toast another of mother nature’s finest offerings as I strike up a similar conversation with “Cigar Buddy, Jr.”.

Cigari Maduro Robusto Cigar Review

Posted on Sunday, March 20, 2011 in Cigar Reviews

Cigari Maduro Robusto Cigar Review

This 5×50 dark chocolate stick offers a firm, rough satin finish with tight constructions, minimal veins, invisible seams and a chocolate and hay aroma. First light reveals a very snug draw, medium bodied flavors of a sweet tobacco with minimal smoke output and a short clean finish. The first third opens the draw a bit to a firm but smokable amount, giving the same slightly sweet tobacco taste. 30 min in at the 1/2 way point the only shift is to a creamier smoke, not exactly smooth but not harsh by any means. Ending at 50 min where it got very snug and warm, there were no further changes to the cigar at all. Overall a very consistent, good performing smoke. Thank you very much to Cigari Cigars for generously providing this sample for review!

How To Cut, Light & Smoke A Cigar

How To Cut, Light & Smoke A Cigar

First of all a big disclaimer: everything stated here is my OPINION. As is EVERY other how to video on smoking, keeping, fondling, etc. cigars. If you disagree with any of my OPINIONS here, that’s cool. But I don’t care. I’m putting this info out there because I get multiple requests for it every week, so I want to help those looking for the info. I realize there are probably 100 other articles on it already, but I’m going to give my OPINIONS and talk about what I prefer.

Enjoy the video, but if you feel the need to tell me I’m ‘wrong’ about any of these OPINIONS, do everyone else a favor and keep it to yourself, or better yet, make your own video with your own OPINIONS. :)
