  • Perdomo 2 Milenario ‘Mistakes’

    Steve R

    I decided to pick up the game of golf this summer. I call it a game simply because it’s always playing with my mind. One day I’ll do well, the next day I’ll go through $25 in balls. Although I can’t always control how I play on the course, I can control what cigars I’ll be burning while looking for my ball. I’ve always been told never to have ‘good’ …

I remember my first Mini Belicoso like it was yesterday. I was still …

    La Aurora, a.k.a. The Fuente Killer. Why do I call it this? Because every time a customer asks for something comparable to Fuente, I introduce them to La Aurora - in my mind, the best brand to ever come out of the Dominican. 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 …
