Juan Lopez Carribe Exclusivo 2008

Posted: 16th February 2011 by Shawn in Cuban Cigars, Juan Lopez

Juan Lopez Carribe Exclusivo 2008 50 x 5.0 I don’t expect that many reading this article for the first time would be all to familiar with the Juan Lopez brand, if you are however, I would guess that you are either well acquainted with Cuban cigars, or like myself, you spend far to much time […]

Bolivar Royal Corona

Posted: 31st January 2011 by Shawn in Bolivar, Cuban Cigars

The Bolivar Royal Corona, talk about a unique regular production cigar. Often overlooked in favour of more popular family cigars such as the Belicosos finos or Coronas Gigantes and named as a Royal Corona despite being a classic robusto size (4 7/8 x 50), it more than manages to capture my interest. Apart from its […]

Romeo y Julieta Churchill

Posted: 20th December 2010 by Shawn in Cuban Cigars, Romeo y Julieta

Romeo y Julieta Chuchill 7 x 47 Perhaps as classic as the Montiecristo or Cohiba, Romeo y Julieta is one of the seemingly timeless and stoic Cuban brands that is perhaps best known for fathering the Churchill. The appearance of the cigar is unique in that it possesses considerable size, yet it appears rather fragile […]

Johnny O Sublime

Posted: 18th December 2010 by Shawn in Cuban Cigars, Johnny O

Johnny O sublime 6 1/2 x 54 The Johnny O’s were a brand of cigar – if you can call it a brand – that had eluded me until recently. It wasn’t until receiving receiving an asshanding of a bomb from a friend that I was finally given the chance to enjoy one of these […]

This was a quicky review conducted whilst I was moderately intoxicated so bear with me, its short and to the point

Trinidad Coloniales

Posted: 28th November 2010 by Shawn in Cuban Cigars, Trinidad

Trinidad Coloniales 44 x 5.1” Well its a cold day here in Canada and I don’t have a lot of time on my plate, but at the very least I figured if I was going to smoke a cigar, I could do a quick review. I’ve had mixed feelings about Petite Coronas for a while […]

Posted: 23rd November 2010 by Shawn in Cuban Cigars, Ramon Allones

Ramon Allones Canadian Regional Edition Petit Unicos 5×50 EDIT: Due to this cigars poor construction issues, I will be revisiting this at a later date Upon being given the chance to split on a box of these with a friend, I became rather excited as I’d never had a Ramon Allones before, never mind one […]

Hoyo De Monterrey Epicure No. 2

Posted: 22nd November 2010 by Shawn in Cuban Cigars, Hoyo De Monterrey

Hoyo De Monterrey Epicure No. 2 – 4.8×50 When I think of elegance and cigars, Robustos generally aren’t the first vitola that come to mind, this one however has something unique. To begin with, the wrapper is an attractive rich reddish-brown hue that’s just left my mouth-watering, I’m thinking perhaps this is because the colouring […]

Diplomatico No. 2

Posted: 6th August 2010 by Shawn in Cuban Cigars, Diplomaticos

Generally, a Friday morning is an exemplary model of the mundane normalcy that is my life. However, on this particular Friday, I woke groggy and without bearing to the words “Shawn, mail is here!” proceeded by a moderately large mail parcel being thrown directly at my head. While I’m not acutely in favour of this […]
