I don't know about ya'll but at my local B&M the other day we happened to be smoking through the Murcielagos and LADC Mi Amors and could swear that these are the exact same blend. They taste identical with the dark chocolate and coffee bean flavors. The combustion, burn, and ash are all the...
Mi Dominicana by Jose Seijas
I just might have found my favorite cigar. While traversing the back issues of Cigar Aficionado and their archives of the Top 25 Cigars of 2009, 2008, 2007, and 2006, I noticed a name of a cigar maker that made several appearances. The cigar maker was Jose...

Vacation and Cuban Cigars (Ramon Allones)
Just got back from some much needed vacation time in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. This was my first time back to the area in 8 years. Many things were the same and many other things were different the second time around. After the hurricane several...
2005 Botromagno Primitivo
Need a wine to go with your Thanksgiving turkey, pizza, game dishes, or BBQ? This little wine from Puglia, Italy is what I imagine wine back in the day tasting like. This is straight from the Old World style of wine making. New world wine fans, I imagine, will...

Alec Bradley MAXX Cigars
Got a new shipment of cigars in today, and within it, this little cigar. Little, is not really the right word to describe this tobacco stick, when in reality it's a BIG cigar, not only in size (5.0x58), but in flavor. A beautiful cigar to look at, with it's...

Last Tuesday, like a proper gentleman, I woke up at 8:30am and watched Sportscenter 'til 10:00, and drove to the Spec's liquor store for some supplies. I had worked 3 days in a row and was very tired and just felt like having a "me" day again. I came away from Spec's with a bottle of Segura...
Strip clubs, bachelor parties, anniversaries, and births, these cigars are for you! The Padron Family has some of the largest stocks of premium aged tobacco in the world and the best of those aged tobaccos went into making the 1964 Anniversary Series cigars and Serie 1926 cigars. Ever since...
Today, after leaving work I felt the need to replenish cigar supplies. I got a full weekend of events with friends this weekend and already know that there will be some cigar smoking going on. So I head down to Tobacco Junction off of West Adams in downtown Temple which just happens to be...
I am huge fan of Sonoma Cabernet. I know Napa gets more hype, but I believe colder weather sites produce better cabs.
Personally my favorites come from Sojourn Cellars. Their 2005 Sonoma Mountain Terraces Cab is simply magical. Thank got I got a bunch of it in the humidor!
What are some of...
