Cigar Review– Perla Del Mar L Maduro

This cigar is the first one that I have smoked since doing the blog that I don’t recommend. The cap of the cigar was loose and the cut was hard to get clean.

The cigar was average at best, It did not burn evenly and it had to be re lit several times. My preference for cigars are maduro’s ( like this one), however, I didn’t like this one.

 

Details of the Smoke

I smoked the cigar with friends. I had coffee with the cigar. Coffee is my favorite drink to complement a cigar. The smoke took about a 1 and half hours. The aroma of the smoke was OK. A guillotine cutter was used. To lit the cigar a butane lighter was used. It was well keep at 70% humidity.

Cigar Review –Arturo Fuente Hemingway

/ by / Tags: , , ,

Arturo Fuente Hemingway

I recently smoked a Arturo Fuente Hemingway classic cigar. The smoke was great. I have to let it be known, that this has always been one of my favorite cigars.

It has bit of a sweet taste on the wrapper. When smoked the sweetness is very faint. The cigar had a great taste, as well as a pleasant aroma. Equally important, this was a tasteful cigar without being over bearing. Furthermore, this is a great looking cigar.

Uniquely I believe this cigar is better than the reviews by others (comparatively they can be seen at the bottom of the post). I would defiantly recommend this cigar to anyone interested in a great cigar.

Details of the Cigar

The Fuente Hemingway Classic premium cigars are handcrafted in the old Cuban tradition. Using the original Fuente perfecto molds from the 1920s, the cigars are blended with vintage Dominican filler and binder encased in Cameroon wrappers for a mellow smoke with delicate notes of cedar and spice.

Kristoff Ligero Maduro Matador

Kristoff Ligero Maduro Matador

This Kristoff cigar was a great smoke. You better like maduro’s because this is a strong cigar. Of course it’s one my favorite cigars too. I would highly recommend this to everyone, with the exception of maybe a novice smoker. The cigar has a very nice look to it. Likewise the cigar burned evenly. In addition to being a great smoke it has a very unique look to it, with a pigtail head.

Details of the Smoke

I smoked the cigar with two other people. The smoke took approximately 2 hours. It was well kept in a humidor at 70% humidity. The cigar was cut by a guillotine cutter. It was lit by a butane lighter. I drank a unsweetened tea with it. Being a maduro I would recommend coffee to be couple with the cigar and not tea. Additionally it was smoked in a well vented area. Equally important to the great taste, the aroma of the cigar was fantastic.
