    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.

    Pueblo Dominicano is a cigar that I’m very excited about. Although it’s not in stock yet, it will be shortly, and I am waiting for its arrival with baited breathe. I’m about done with the last of my samples, which is making me even more eager to receive our shipment. Before I get into the gory details about how this beaut smokes, I’ll give you some background info on the …
