    So I'm tasting my first Ave Maria Crusader and contrary to most opinions I'm actually enjoying it? I've seen the ads for the stupidly expensive Reconquistas and while I'd never spend that kind of money on a cigar that's not steadily established as worthwhile I would like to know if anyone has...

    I know there are plenty of people that don't like the Park Ave Cigars, and even more people that hate Gurkha but i was wondering if anyone has tired the Park Ave Maduro's. I have always liked the Park Ave, I find it to be a great summer out on the boat cigar and was thinking of trying the...

    Just got these today. Photos were taken prior to refridge. Ave Maria - Holy Grail (Free fiver with the Reconquisto 3-box) Ave Maria Reconquisto - I just can't bear to break these seals. The artwork on the bands and on the seals is just beautiful. So, the coffins went into ziplocks and...

    Just finished smoking the Ave Maria Crusader and I feel compelled to do a review. I really should have done my homework before buying one, but at least I was smart enough to just get a single. It was pretty lousy. I guess I had a temporary case of A.D.O.S. (for those of you not familiar with...

    Today seemed like a good day to smoke a cigar, however I just got over being sick so maybe my palette was off, what to do? I look through the humi and find the Gurkha Park Ave I got in a why not I've heard good reviews. Construction 3/5: It was solid, very sleek but it tore so...

    The Ave Maria is a fine looking cigar that did not live up to the hype. I got flavors of wood, hay, and leather. The burn was good and the cigar ... Read the full review here: Ave Maria St. George Cigar Review - Over Hyped Cigar

    La Bodeguita Del Medio 463 S California Ave Palo Alto, CA 94306 I'm new to the ocean here but thought I would throw out this place that I just discovered recently. Went here for a superb cuban dinner and came to find out that they have a cigar lounge in the back of the restaurant. Not at all...

    Here is my review of the Ave Maria (St. George 6.0 x 54) Drink - Sweet Tea Music - Classic rock station. Riders on the storm by The Doors and and Lucky Man by Emerson, Lake, and Palmer came on while I was smoking which made me extra happy. OK, OK on to the cigar! Construction - My initial...
