  • Gurkha Doble Maduro

    I’ve been chomping at the bits waiting for this cigar to come in. You see, we received samples of this cigar on the same day as the Triple Ligero X3. If you’ve read my write-up on Triple Ligero, you know I am a fan. Well, between that and the Doble Maduro, I favor the latter. Why? Take the super-smooth richness of a Triple Ligero, but leave out the spicy, robust ligero leaves, and …

Think about it: they’re both mild to medium-bodied premiums made in the Dominican using the finest selection of long-leaf tobaccos and Cameroon wrappers. Apples to …

  • Rocky Patel Connecticut

    Yes, I know...I just did a write-up on the Rocky Patel Sun Grown. What can I say, Rocky makes some phenomenal cigars, and I am enjoying each new line that he’s come out with. Every time I crack open a box of Vintage, I know exactly what to expect from each cigar found inside. The same goes for the Sun Grown and the Edge, and Rocky’s latest creation, the Connecticut, is no different. …
