Staff Reviews for August 2005

  • La Gloria Cubana Serie R

    I just returned about a week ago from New Orleans, where the annual RTDA cigar industry trade show was held this year. Man, talk about a roll in the catnip. I always look forward to RTDA - catching up with friends in the industry, working out deals, discussing new projects, smoking 20 cigars a day....and hatching schemes to destroy the competition (he he he). It's sensory overload, with cigars as …

  • Nat Sherman Host Selection

    Back when I was cigar newbie, I think it was the summer of '95, I walked into a tobacco shop down in the west village of NYC.

  • ACID Ltd. Def Sea

    Smooooooooooooooth! That's pretty much all this review needs. Soooooo Smoooooth!!!! Spark'em up. This is a great summer smoke. This gar is the complete opposite of last month's pick. Let me start by saying I'm not a huge fan of anything imbued with anything. I used to think flavored cigars were for sissies. Well, things sure have changed around here. I've got two in the rotation now, Cuban Honeys …
