Cigar Review: Arturo Fuente Anejo Shark No. 77

Arturo Fuente cigars are easily attainable, they are sold in almost every gas station humidor on military bases and every brick and mortar store. The same can’t be said for a select few lines such as Opus X, Anejo, and Casa Cuba.  When I saw my local brick and mortar, Leatherwood, get a box of…

Cigar Review: Chogüí Dos77 Rogusto Extra (2022)

Chogüí Cigars is one of those “IYKYK” (if you know, you know) cigar brands. Chogüí Cigars is, as Jeremy Casdagli would say, “Boutique as fuck.” So boutique, that I couldn’t find what factory rolls the Chogüí brand. In fact, there’s not a lot out there. The Chogüí website just adds to this mystique, as it…

The Smoke Inn has partnered with Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust and the Red Meat Lovers Club to bring us a delicious Red Meat Lovers Cigar. This stick is duly called the “Beef Stick”.

Cigar Review: La Historia Regalias d’Celia (Belicoso) from E.P. Carrillo

The La Historia from E.P. Carrillo has received multiple awards from various media outlets. Most notably, it was rated the #2 cigar in 2014 from Cigar Aficionado in a larger toro vitola rather than the belicoso I am reviewing. I always liked the idea of a belicoso concentrating more of the cigars flavor because of…

Cigar Review: Punch Fu Manchu

In 2019, Punch Cigars began celebrating the Chinese New Year with a new release. I applaud their creativeness and avoiding, yet another, Chinese zodiac release…except, that’s it’s another Chinese zodiac themed release. The inaugural release, the Punch Eggroll, was amazing. This was followed by the Chop Suey in 2020, and the Kung Pow in 2021;…

Plasencia Alma Fuerte Generacion V Salomon

“Alma Fuerte” translates to “strong soul” and the company has exhibited just that throughout it’s long history. In 1865, Don Eduardo Plasencia left the Canary Islands in order to start growing tobacco in Vuelta Abajo, Cuba. In 1978, due to political turmoil, the Plasencia family’s tobacco farms were burned down, forcing the family to move…

Cigar Review: El Oso Blanco from Warped Cigars

I’ve only been in the cigar hobby for four years. For better or worse, that means that I’ve missed a lot. But in that four years, I’ve found that Warped Cigars have had some of the most solid offerings out there; especially in the last few years. The Moon Garden, Sky Flower, La Hacienda, La…
