  1. General Cigar Discussion
    Road trip to Florida after New Years day - while in Tampa/Brooksville went down in Ybor City and visited Tampa Sweethearts Cigar Co., - home base of the Fuentes. Got to meet and chat with some of the Fuentes, including Arturo Jr. - a wonderful gentleman who was nice enough to spend time with me...
  2. General Cigar Discussion
    I strike up a conversation with an employee who looks familiar and lo and behold it's Arturo Fuente Jr. I also got to meet Fuente Sr. Very cool guys that don't seem all 'self-important' like some other icons of the cigar world (Rocky, this means you!). My camera was in the car but of course I...

    Just a quick review here...I had my first taste of anything Tampa Sweetheart and I must say for a "cheap" smoke this was fairly decent. The construction was solid with a great even burn and a lot of smoke. I may have smoked it a little fast as it turned a bit harsh on me toward the end, but...
  4. Want to Buy (WTB)
    Hi everyone! I've recently read a few nice reviews of the Tampa Sweetheart brand as well as the Hemingway Short Story line. I'm still pretty new to cigars and would like to try one of each before I jump in and purchase a box. If you have one of these that you could sell me I would appreciate...
  5. General Cigar Discussion
    Gone through the search and have gathered enough to know I am going to hit some Tampa Sweethearts the first of the month with my next buy. I am going Maduro first. My question is what size should I buy. I only want to get one bundle to try them out. The 280 seems to be the popular choice. I...
  6. General Cigar Discussion
    I've searched through the threads and found 4 or 5 different Tampa Sweethearts repeatedly mentioned. I thought a poll would help me collect the info in one place. So which is your favorite? I didn't include the short fillers...

    This won't be a literary masterpiece but I thought I'd give it a try. I recieved two Tampa Sweetheart No. 500's maduros from DJM as part of the Newbie PIF, new but not improved exchange (among some other fantastic looking cigars that DJM sent). The No 500s are 4 1/2x50, unbanded, celloed...

    First, thanks to Casadooley for gifting me with this delightful smoke. After clipping with my trust Palio, the prelit taste was of roasted coffee, which remained after the lighting. This was a very consistant smoke, very creamy roasted coffee/cocoa flavor from start to finish. I nubbed to to...
  9. Non-Habanos Reviews
    Well I made a call to TS last week to get some TS #500 Maduros, but the women who answered the call told me they were all out so she recommended the 50's instead. So after ordering a bundle of those, as well as some special treats(2 Anejo 55's, and 2 Hemingway Classics Maduro) I got ready to...
  10. Non-Habanos Reviews
    "Catfish" favored Henry and I with about 10 of these suckers more than a month ago. Henry LOVES them (they're going in his Cristmas stocking). I LOVE them (I've hinted to Henry that he might "share" his stash). This is truly a fine maduro! BODY: Don't expect a "work of art." It's an "ugly"...
  11. General Cigar Discussion
    I have been meaning to order up a bundle or two of these - okay make it 3 bundles - :D Question is which ones? A search gives me 18 million postings where mostly all is said is "I got some!" I see the numbers 280 and 500 mentioned - but no info really on taste. What I want is flavor. I...

    Frank, aka floydp, sent me a couple of his Tampa girls today to sample. As soon as I saw them I wanted to take one and have my way with her that minute, but I restrained myself and let them rest awhile after their long journey. Finally, after hours of waiting and letting the anticipation...

    PRELUDE: This feeble attempt at a cigar review was made possible by the unexpected gift of 5 TS #4 Maduros and 5 TS #500 Maduros, compliments of a crazed BOTL who goes by "catfishm2", wish the expressed wish that Henry and I BOTH enjoy them. Well... Here goes! I'm Steve, the handsome...
  14. Cigar Bombs
    So we're on Skype one night and someone brings up Tampa Sweethearts. I say, yeah I've heard a lot about those. Frank says "you've never had one, Doyle?" I hesitate too long and Frank says he's got some coming and will send me some when he get's them. Not only is he a skypin' bastage, he can't...
  15. Entertainment
    About time for her to come out with an album. She really did another great job as she did with the first 2 with hole. She has this mix of punk,grunge and rock. a few good ballads thrown in as well. if you liked the first 2 cd's this is a must buy.
