    Brand: Romeo Y Julieta Series: Viejo Vitola: Robusto 5x54 Drink: Cherry Coke Zero with The Kraken Rum Prelight: A natural sweet tobacco/hay smell. For some reason I feel like I am getting the scent of some fruit… Raisins? Plums? I don't know… Definitely a bit of a chocolate smell...

    Brand: Puros Indios Series: Viejo Maduro Vitola: Toro 6x52 Drink: Vitamin Water Lemonade then Water Prelight: A sweet tobacco taste, and when I say sweet, this time I mean VERY sweet. I swear I can almost taste something like a candy cane in there. I could be losing my mind though. Lighting...

    First, I can't complain about cost with this smoke. These can be picked up for less than $2 a piece online. Taking that into account, this isn't a... Read the full review here: Puros Indios Viejo Corona Maduro Cigar Review - a decent knock around

    I do enjoy Puros Indios cigars, and this is a good cigar. A rough looking wrapper and a bit of a loose roll are made up for with a perfect burn. Ea... Read the full review here: Puros Indios Viejo Rothschilds Cigar Review - An Oldey but a Goodey

    Just bought 5 pack of the Vieja. What a terrific smoke, great flavor from first light. But so difficult to keep going with tough draw. Seems a number of people have similar issues. Does anyone know of another brand with same flavor profile?

    This is my first review, and in all fairness it probably shouldn't be viewed as an accurate review of this cigar for a few reasons. Basically I got it in the mail from CI in a sampler, all of the cigars were in cellophane except for this one, normally this wont bug me too much but this thing was...

    I truly enjoyed this cigar. The wrapper is rough and oily....I think I would eat it if I wasn't going to smoke it. Lots of chocolate and wood fla... Read the full review here: Romeo y Julieta Viejo E Cigar Review - Very chocolately!

    got a fiver off cbid almost two months ago ($15), just finished smokeing my first one and wow was it good. The box pressed shape construction was flawless, the pre light draw was sweet and effortless. The first third was earthy, hints of woody notes and leather, very smooth. The ash was light...

    One more down in my quest for Puros Indios zen. I earlier reviewed this in the corona size and surprisingly enjoyed it. On Cigary's advice, I then purchased a bundle of the churchill size off of c-bid for almost nothing. I'm hoping this one is as good or better than the corona! Prelight As...

    Sorry about the short review sans picture, but this is another review that I had no idea I'd be writing. After a poor experience with the 'Special Aged Piramide,' I had very low expectations for this stick and had made no preparations for a review. In fact, after reading many poor reviews, I...

    Have any of you botl smoked one of these rockets lately? I looked at the review page but they are all from 3+ years ago and wanted to get info on some more recent experiences. I already have a bundle coming so I need to know if I should gift them to my brother, chop em up and feed them to the...

    Guys, sit back, relax, and spend some time with an old friend... Cigar: Puros Indios Viejo Size: ?? Robusto? Toro? Honestly didn't pay attention to this part, but I think it may have been a roby due to the burn-time. Or maybe that was just my enthusiastic puffing! =D Dedication: Thank you...

    After over a year in the humi and over a week in the dry box, I actually got one of these to draw good enough to not throw away. I will never buy ... Read the full review here: Romeo y Julieta Viejo E Cigar Review - Actually got one to smoke well!

    I ordered a La Tradicion Cubana churchill 5-pack from Camino Viejo Tabacos and it arrived today with two damaged sticks. One has a 2-inch split up the foot and the other has about a half inch split. The remaining three look very nice. I called and spoke to a woman who was apologetic and took...

    I had never heard of the Anejo, until I was trying to find a lot of Opus X that I could buy at MSRP. I fell into the unavoidable review stuff and the word, "Anejo", kept popping up. "Opus X for the maduro lover." "Aged in top secret cognac barrels." "Opus filler and binder with a fine...
