    Better late than never. For the month of November I chose to review a JML 1902 Petit Torpedo. I had never heard of this cigar until I received it from MarkinCA for the November selection. Information was hard to come by on the cigar as the La Tradicion Cubana Inc. website is currently...

    This month I decided to review the Taboo Dominican Maduro that I received from MarkinCA for October. I am a big fan of the Taboo Twist so I was eager to see what the other cigars in the lineup are all about. For a maduro cigar, I thought the wrapper was lighter in color than I'm used to. It...

    Its been a pretty rough month for me. As some of you know, I lost my job this past Tuesday. However, a positive I have had a chance to sit back and enjoy some very nice cigars. One of the best I have tried this month is from MarkinCA, a Camacho Petit Corona. I fired up this stick this...

    Just now getting around to post this review for August. I decided to review the La Flor Dominicana Ligero from the awesome selection from MarkinCA. Pre-light: The construction of the cigar was rather rugged. There where quite a few veins throughout and the color was a little different from...

    This month was a very busy month for this gorilla. I found it difficult to find time to enjoy a lot of cigars, but I have really enjoyed the few I have had. One in particular was gifted to me by MarkinCA. This wonderful little smoke was the Famous Nicaraguan 3000 robusto. I have heard a lot...

    This month MarkinCA sent me a very nice selection of Maduro cigars along with a very nice surprise of coffee. Immediately upon receiving the cigars for May, I decided to smoke a HDM Excalibur. I paired this cigar with a fresh ground cup of Sumatra coffee that Mark sent as well. My impressions...

    For my second review this month, I chose the CAO Criollo. I will include some pictures below as well. I have had one of these before, but I didn't really pay much attention to it. I remembered it was a decent cigar, nothing special but nothing bad either. This time wouldn't prove much...

    Here are the smokes Reggie sent me this month (thanks again!): I started with the Cabaiguan. It starts off very woody, with some pepper notes and a great draw. The one thing I notice is there is no bite. Usually I don't like full strength cigars because of the "bite" but this cigar had strong...

    This month for my first review I chose to go with a Rocky Patel OSG that was so generously given to me by MarkinCA. Let me just say that I have been somewhat biased against Patel and I don't really know why. I guess I am a little skeptical of his blends because he appears to have so many and...

    This month for my review I choose a Taboo Exotic Maduro that I was gifted by MarkinCA. I had been curious about this cigar before and was eager to give it a try. The only other Taboo I have tried is the Twist, which has become one of my favorite cigars. First Impressions: The cigar looked...

    Searched but did not find anything on this. Could we set up a Troop Adoption Program? The guys that are in contact with the troops already could hook up a CS member that wants to adopt with a soldier that wants to be adopted. It would be a cigar version of a pen pal. Emails/photos could be...

    This is my second review for Feb. 2008. Today I chose to smoke a Mayorga "robusto torpedo" at least that is how I would describe it. I don't know much about these cigars, but the wrapper immediately caught my eye. The wrapper was a beautiful golden brown color that looked good enough to...
