    Got a box of these in a while ago and have been letting them chill in the coolerdor...normally I would have waited longer before I got started on them, but I was really anxious to try them. Too bad that I did, because at this rate I don't think they will be around very long! 5.5 x 40 Cremas...

    Hi guys, I just got a lot of Hoyo Palmas Extra. I also got some for a BOTL who smoked one and pronounced it really tight. IIRC, I read the same thing on here. The lot is from 6/08. I plan on letting mine sit, but need some advice on this (seemingly endemic) issue. Will some rest help this...

    Had my first experience with a Hoyo de Monterrey Palmas Extra this weekend. I was genuinely disappointed, as the draw and burn were inconsistent, and I had issues keeping the thing lit. I wrote up a little review at The Aspiring Gentleman with pictures and such if anyone is interested. I have...

    I just inherited my uncles cigars. He was a friend of Red Skelton back in the 50's. The cigars are boxed and wrapped. The labels say House of Windsor, Compliments of Red Skelton. The outside of the box says House of Windsor, Palmas with a picture of a royal guard on a horse, manufactured by...

    I see a lot of people singing the praises of the Londres but rarely ever see talk of the Palmas. The only difference I see being the Palmas are 6 1/2" vs the 5 1/2" Londres. With a lot of talk lately about smoking lanceros and smaller ring guage cigars I'm wondering why there isn't more...

    I was given a box of these by my fiancée for Christmas, among other cigar related things. Oh yeah, she's definitely a keeper! :D Anyway, I decided to take this stick out and fire it up while I read over my criminology text book. Doubtful smoking and studying go hand in hand, but it made for...

    I finally put my review of this cigar up. I love these Petit Coronas, they have a nice wine and cedar flavor and are not overpowering in the strength department.

    Joe from Fullers Pullers let me know the have these in. He's got 5-Packs and Boxes available and the price is pretty good. These are a fantastic 20-30 minute smoke that I was raving about a couple weeks ago. I begged Joe to start carrying them so I could get my fix...

    I figured I'd go ahead and let the cat out of the bag here. I've been smoking these cigars for about a year now and I cant get over them. They are hand made in Charleston S.C by one single roller. The inital light is very peppery but quickly dies down. The one I'm smoking is the Nic puro...

    I wasn't a big fan of NC RyJ though, this one smokes very well. Mild to medium, nice aroma, creamy, well balanced taste and finish. The Bully and I recently smoked had a similar quality. Just I like this Palmas size 6 x 43 better and want to buy more. Problem is, I can't find this cigar in the...
