  • La Perla Habano Morado

                    Well well, here we go again! This time I have a selection that’s not only pleasing to the palate, but also to the wallet! I, along with a few of my fellow colleagues were recently on a trip to Nicaragua. While there, we visited many factories where we worked on new blends and sampled blends already …

    New 2010 Release: La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor As some of you may know, I was a HUGE fan of the old La Aroma de Cuba blend from Honduras.

Smokes like a gem, priced like an economy cigar....in all, a winning set of attributes.  But …

  • 5 Vegas Gold Maduro

    Steve R
    91
    When word got out about a new, maduro version of the top-selling 5 Vegas Gold, I instantly grew nervous. The Connecticut-wrapped Gold Series is the golden goose of the 5 Vegas line, a mellow but flavorful stud that outsells bigger name brands like Macanudo and Ashton. You don’t want to mess with that kind of success. However, I soon learned that 5 Vegas Gold Maduro would be sporting my …
