La Patrona Robusto (5 x 50)






Video review HERE.


This is the brand new cigar from the wife of Jorge Leon, owner of Miura Cigars. Geidy Leon, owner of La Patrona Cigars, is currently debuting this cigar at this year's IPCPR in Las Vegas. The cigar is so new I know very little about it but it is comprised of:

Wrapper - Sungrown Sumatra Ecuador
Binder - Brazil 
Filler - Brazil, DR, Peru and Nicaragua

The cigar is very well made and quite dense feeling in the hand. Here is a shot of the foot.




The test draw after cutting the cap was great. The initial flavors were sweet nutmeg, green tea, dry cedar, and leather. The black pepper is rated at a 7.5. The front end flavors are very interesting. 


At 3/4 inch the cigar has a very even burn. The flavors now are sweet nutmeg, green tea, and leather. The dry cedar is subtle. The cigar is medium to full bodied. The finish has influences of the leather along with a sweet cream. There is quite a bit of lingering black pepper on the finish also.



About 1 1/2 inch in the leather is the main flavor along with the nutmeg and tea. There are also some cream notes that tone down the leather. There is dry wood, not necessarily cedar, but dry wood notes. The cigar is still medium to full bodied but appears to be headed to full bodied. The cream notes are somewhat subtle but they really tone down the leather.



At the midpoint you have some sweet  cedar to go along with the nutmeg. The cream notes continue to tone down the leather. The tea notes are subtle. The dry wood is quite noticeable. This flavor combination is very good, in my opinion. The strength is medium to full bodied. The finish does not have the heavy influence of leather now, rather there are toasted notes on the cream.



With about 1 1/2 inch remaining the leather has toned down somewhat. The sweet cedar is your second main flavor. There are a lot of dry, charred wood notes. The nutmeg has also toned down. The tea notes have gone away. There are still some light cream notes. The cigar is very close to full bodied now. The finish is unchanged. 



This has been an excellent cigar. Geidy has blended a great cigar. At the end the flavors were light leather, sweet cedar, and dry, charred wood. The cream is subtle and acts as a mellowing agent for the other three. The finish is unchanged. The strength is full bodied. I am not sure where you can find these but I will be in contact with Jorge to find out where I can purchase them. I had the churchill and the 6x54 size previously. The 6x54 size was a fantastic cigar that might be a tick better than the robusto. This is a winner. When you see them in your shop be sure to try them. They are great!

Buena Vista Reserva Piramide (6.3 x 52)






Video review HERE.


In 2011 Buena Vista Cigars was released with a sizable amount of industry hype do superb cigar construction, one of kind luxury presentation and packaging, and most importantly, the quality of the cigar itself.

Circumstances beyond the manufacturer’s control hindered the project’s development and successful advancement. The entire production of 200,000 cigars was stored in temperature and humidity-controlled cedar conditioning rooms, until 2013. At that point, José E. Borges Batista, founding partner and current President of MGM Cigar, arrived to the United States (after a prolonged wait) bringing with him dreams of freedom, prosperity, and his irrevocable mission of pressing ahead with the MGM Cigar project.

José E. Borges said: “The M.GM. Cigar project and first brand Buena Vista cigar was nothing more than a dream in 2009. It quickly caught flight, only to be put to bed for a short while. I am thankful to have relocated to the United States where I am free to forge ahead with our project. We look forward to re-introducing the Buena Vista Cigar brand which pays homage to all who, through music and from one generation to another, have kept the Cuban traditions, values and joie de vivre alive.”

Buena Vista Reserva 2008 is crafted by Cuban master rollers, who expertly mix a filler of select tobacco harvested in the Dominican Republic, aged two years (2008-2010) and then dress it with an elegant Habano 98 wrapper from Ecuador.


The Buena Vista brand is presented in boxes of 10 units and comes in 9 vitolas:

CIGAR SIZES (VITOLAS) DIMENSIONS         
 PROMINENTE                  7 x 49                         
 SUBLIME                          6.3 x 54                       
 PIRAMIDE                        6.3 x 52  (Reviewed today)                     
 DOBLE ROBUSTO           5.5 x 52                       
 ROBUSTO                         5.3 x 54                   
 CORONA LARGA            4.8 x 50                       
 CORONA                          5.1 x 46                       
 PETIT PYRAMID             4.9 x 52                         
 SHORT CHURCHILL       4.3 x 54


The cigar is very well made and has a nice feel in the hand. Here is a shot of the foot and it's density.




The test draw after cutting about 1/4 inch from the pointed piramide cap was very good with just a touch of firmness. The initial flavors at light up were a very surprising sweet orange citrus with lots of roasted nut flavors. There were also light coffee notes and wood notes. The black pepper was rated at a 7. 




About one inch in the flavors have changed a bit. The orange citrus has changed to a sweet cedar and there are cherry notes mixed in. The roasted nuts are now roasted almonds. There are still light coffee notes at the base and there is quite a bit of earthiness. The cigar is medium bodied, at best. The finish is a sweet cream with almond tones and some lingering black pepper.




1 3/4 inch in the burn line is perfect and the ash is tight. There is a heavy influence of roasted almonds right after the sweet cedar and cherry notes. There is still a light coffee base. There are also some dry wood notes. The earth notes have toned down. The finish is unchanged.




At the band the burn line is evident. The cigar is very consistent at this point. Very little has changed, if anything, since the last segment.




The cigar ended with heavy coffee and dry wood notes. The roasted almonds are subtle, along with the sweet cedar. The cherry notes have disappeared. This big change happened in the final quarter so it will not affect the total score that much. The finish is unchanged and the cigar ended at medium to full bodied. This has been a very good cigar with some surprising notes. It started with surprising notes and continued very good through over 3/4 of the cigar. Look for these in shops shortly.

JR Cigar Black Abyss Press Release‏


Fans of premium-quality San Andrés wrapper leaf are gonna want to check out, Black Abyss, a brand-new handrolled premium cigar crafted by José “Jochy” Blanco, the guy who grows the leaf for a bunch of Boutique Blends cigar brands, including Aging Room and Swag, both of which have collected tons of high ratings in cigar magazines (the Aging Room Quattro F55 Concerto took second place in Cigar Aficionado's top 25 of 2013). Anyway…

Black Abyss is handmade at Tabacalera Palma in the Dominican Republic and, while it is full bodied, it’s cleverly designed for not just smokers of super-strong cigars. It’s got that big, rich, bold flavor often associated with a San Andrés wrapper and it does contain some potent ligero leaf, but along with the blend’s hearty, zesty notes of dark coffee, this cigar begins and ends with a sweetness while a smooth creaminess remains throughout, making it a great choice for medium-bodied cigar fans who want to step it up in strength.

Black Abyss’s construction is top-notch, as evidenced by its extremely even burn and draw, which are made even better by an exceptionally appealing aroma.

Jochy Blanco’s Black Abyss is made in four sizes (each featuring a somewhat sinister name: Banshee, Cerberus, Hydra, and Wraith) packed in boxes of 20 cigars. If all that’s piqued your interest, you’ll be glad to know that Black Abyss cigars are also pretty reasonably priced. Starting in July, you’ll find them exclusively at JR Cigar.

Roberto Pelayo Duran is fully committed to providing a full line at this year’s IPCPR. The Addition of the premium Neya and the value cigar Baracoa will fill in the gap in the Roberto P. Duran line as the announcement was made last week that he will introduce a super-premium brand, Roberto P. Duran Cigar.



The Neya Premium cigar brand is a premium brand which comes in a cedar 20 count cabinet.  The Filler and Binder is both Nicaraguan while the wrapper is a Habana Ecuador.

Roberto said:” Neya is a brand that took some time to develop as we used very well fermented leaves and well-aged Nicaraguan ligero. This is a full flavored cigar in the way that we understood the term in Cuba, which is to mean not spicy but a strongly flavored cigar which increases in strength when smoking the two larger sizes. As with all of our cigars they are rolled under strict supervision in our Nicatobacco Factory in Nicaragua.”






Baracoa, (full name Roberto Duran Baracoa) was created as a great everyday cigar. The RD Baracoa which represents the city of Roberto P. Duran family origin in Cuba (Baracoa) is made with the same quality and care of Roberto’s other cigar lines. The filler and binder is both Nicaraguan with the wrapper an Ecuador Habana Criollo.

Duran Cigar Brand to the public. We are about producing top quality products and we invite everyone to our booth (3813) to experience the passion we put into all of our brands.”



Roberto Pelayo Duran began his life’s work in his homeland of Havana, Cuba where tobacco grabbed a hold of him, and never let go. Supervising the production of cigar manufacturing in Cuba was only the beginning as he later went on to assemble and manage distribution of all Cuban cigar brands for Asia at The Pacific Cigar Company Ltd. Most recently, he contributed to the new global brand marketing strategy for British American Tobacco. The creation of Roberto P. Duran Premium Cigars has given Roberto the platform to introduce a brand of cigars that offer the same quality, construction, and detail which he exceeded from those he supervised while in Cuba.

H. Upmann The Banker Annuity (6 x 52)






Video review HERE.


This is the newest cigar from H. Upmann. The name has interesting roots. In 1844, German bankers Carl and Herman Upmann traveled to Cuba to create an exceptionally unique cigar and locked it away only to be gifted to their most special clients. After nearly 170 years, we have re-created that original blend.

The cigar is comprised of an aged Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, a Nicaraguan binder from the Jalapa region and aged Nicaraguan and Dominican fillers.


"The Banker" by H. Upmann is available in three sizes:
   - Currency 48 x 5 ½"
   - Arbitrage 56 x 7"
   - Annuity 52 x 6" (reviewed today)


Wrapper: Ecuadorian Habano
Binder: Nicaraguan
Filler: Nicaraguan and Dominican

It is a medium brown in color and had a nice feel/weight in the hand. Here is a hot of the foot.




The test draw after cutting the cap was very good. The initial flavors were a light, sweet orange citrus with cream notes. There were also light graham cracker notes. The pepper was a combination of white and red pepper. The finish is a sweet cream that is almost candy-like.



About one inch in the cigar is burning evenly. The original flavors are still intact. The intensity of the red/white pepper is rated at a 7. The cigar is medium bodied. The finish is unchanged. The front end flavors are very nice and the red pepper flavor really makes it that much better.









About two inches in and look at that burn line and tight ash! There are now some dry wood notes on the front end. I love to see a firm, tight ash. That's about 2 inches. There is also a little richness in the front end flavors, which is always nice.










With a couple inches remaining the red pepper notes have decreased and you're left with a white pepper. The graham cracker notes have decreased and the wood notes and earthiness are a little more prominent. The finish is unchanged as well as the strength.









The flavors continued to merge into what is now cedar and citrus notes. Gone are the graham cracker notes and cream. I got notes of white pepper with some red pepper notes at the end with the white pepper dominant. The wood notes also went away. The earthiness was subtle. The cigar was medium bodied and the finish was unchanged. This was a nice "light cigar" from H. Upmann. If the cigar had not change from what it was at the beginning and through the midpoint I would have liked the cigar more but it was a good cigar. These are on shelves now.

A.J. FERNANDEZ TO INTRODUCE THEIR NEWEST CIGAR BRAND AT THE IPCPR: NEW WORLD

(Miami, Florida) July 11, 2014— A.J. Fernandez Cigars, known for producing consistently highly rated and sought after cigars is proud to unveil “New World” at the 2014 IPCPR in Las Vegas. New World will be showcased as a value brand featuring the same quality, consistency, and workmanship that is expected from A.J. Fernandez.  The New World Cigar brand is the first blend in where A.J. Fernandez and father Ismael Fernandez come together



Master blender A.J. Fernandez has created New World. A unique cigar which pays homage to the discovery of then “mystical smoking leaf” called tobacco by the Europeans when their ships landed in what is now called the New World. In November 1492, Jerez and Luis de Torres first observed natives smoking as they were searching for the Emperor of China. Not knowing they landed in what is now known as Cuba, they came across natives that made rolls of palm and mais leaves in the manner of a musket formed of paper with tobacco on the inside. One would light one side and drink the smoke out of the other.

A.J. Fernandez said: “The New World Cigar relates to expanding one’s knowledge and questioning the status quo by discovering our personal New Worlds as we go through life. The team at A.J. Fernandez Cigars is grateful for the amazing support we have received from the consumer and therefore will offer the New World Cigar at a value price as we invite everyone to join us on our New World journey.  Furthermore, I am especially proud to announce that my father Ismael Fernandez who recently retired after 17 years with the Plasencia family has now joined the A.J. Fernandez family. New World marks the first cigar that we work on together since he joined the company. “

The New World blend is an elegant box press cigar, beautifully adorned with a cigar band that depicts the European landing on the shores of the “New World.” As with every A.J. Fernandez cigar brand, New World is carefully hand crafted cigar which was blended under strict supervision of A.J. Fernandez in their Estelí, Nicaragua based factory.

The New World Cigar is a medium to full bodied cigar with an amazing aroma. Smokers of New World will experience elements of sweetness, spiciness in a very balanced and refined cigar. The New World Cigar is composed of a Jalapa binder, Viso Ometepe Filler, Condega Ligero, Esteli-Finca Soledad Ligero, wrapped in a beautiful Dark Nicaragua. At a MSRP of six dollars, A.J. Fernandez is looking for New World to be a first class cigar that can be a daily source of enjoyment.

New World Cigars come in a beautifully adorned 21 count box and come in four sizes.

Navegante:    5 ½ X 55 Robusto
Almirante:      51/2 X 55  Belicoso
Gobernador: 6 ½ X 55 Toro
Virrey:             6 X 58 Gordo

ABOUT A.J. FERNANDEZ CIGARS:
A.J. Fernandez Cigars is based on the rich tradition of the Fernandez cigar legacy. A.J. Fernandez now produces unparalleled, hand-rolled cigars in Estelí, Nicaragua which have garnered numerous top ratings and acclaim from cigar publications and consumers alike.  Today A.J. Fernandez continues the family tradition as he oversees production and manages day to day operations in his factory in Estelí.

Arandoza Cigars Red Label Toro (6 x 52)








Video review HERE.


This is the newest cigar from the good folks at Arandoza Cigars. This cigar is made in the La Zona factory in Esteli, Nicaragua. The wrapper is San Adreas Mexican maduro while the binder and filler are Nicaraguan. These will debut at this year's IPCPR in Las Vegas. This is a pre-release review.

The cigar is very well made and a beautiful shade of dark brown. It has an obvious oily wrapper and nice density.




The test draw after cutting the cap was very good with just a touch of firmness. Basically it was perfect.

The initial flavors at light up were strong coffee, black pepper rated at an 8 1/2, sweet grapefruit citrus, and graham cracker notes. Nice start.


About 3/4 inch in the cigar is already showing full bodied status. There are still plenty of sweet grapefruit citrus notes and now there are nutmeg notes to go along with it. The graham cracker notes are subtle and third in intensity. The nutmeg is quite heavy and noticeable. The finish is one of  sweet cream with citrus notes. There is very little lingering black pepper at this point.



About 30 minutes in the burn is laser perfect. The sweet grapefruit citrus is the main flavor and the nutmeg notes are secondary. The graham cracker notes are now light cocoa notes. The coffee is not as strong as it started at the beginning of the cigar. The black pepper has ticked down just a touch. There is now more lingering pepper on the finish. The cigar is still full bodied and you can feel the ligero.



About 50 minutes in the citrus notes are still prominent but now there are a lot of earth tones and the coffee notes are still in play. The cocoa and nutmeg notes have gone away. The earth notes took their place. The finish is still mainly sweet cream with subtle citrus notes. The black pepper is lingering nicely on the palate.



76 minutes in the flavor notes are about like they were in the last segment but you now also have charred oak notes. The cigar is very full bodied with plenty of ligero. The finish now has more of the citrus notes on sweet cream and lingering black pepper.



The cigar ended at 88 minutes. The flavor notes are unchanged. This cigar has plenty of ligero for you power lovers. The cigar has been very enjoyable and this is, by far, the best Arandoza Cigar I've ever had. Look for these shortly after the IPCPR anywhere that carries Arandoza Cigars. Although the cigar made a major transformation at the midpoint the cigar continued to be very, very good. I really enjoyed this cigar and urge you to try them. You will not be disappointed.

Untamed by La Aurora to be showcased at IPCPR 2014


La Aurora issues warning, the Lion has gone rogue!

(Santiago, DR) July 1, 2014 - La Aurora Cigars is proud to announce the release of their latest creation, Untamed by La Aurora. Using tobacco selected specifically for this project, La Aurora aims to please even the most demanding consumer with this unique blend. Led by master blender, Manuel Inoa, the team at La Aurora has been able to attack this ambitious project head on and are eager to release the beast in Las Vegas. 
Since the year 2000, La Aurora has been on the hunt for the ideal tobacco to enhance the strength of the cigar without sacrificing La Aurora’s signature flavor. Thanks to the collective effort of their team, the factory has been able to cultivate perfect harmony. Utilizing tobacco from 3 different countries and finished off with a dark oily Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, the blend comes with the complexity of a medium bodied cigar and the intensity of something more full.

Untamed by La Aurora recreates a traditional image into a more modern and aggressive look. The Lion has been a symbol of the factory since the beginning in 1903 and since its inception it has been depicted as a docile yet respected predator. Now, in 2014 the King of the Jungle will reassert it’s dominance as the most feared aggressor in the animal kingdom.

This medium to full bodied blend will be available to consumers in four traditional sizes (Robusto, Corona Gorda, Belicoso, Toro) and one not so traditional size, a 7 x 60 behemoth. With an MSRP ranging from $7.00 - $11.00, this cigar is primed to reign as King in humidors nationwide due its perfectly balanced blend, reasonable price point and attractive presentation.
