Archetype Initiation Toro (6 x 52)

Video review HERE.

Ventura Cigar Company has announced an expanded distribution of its Archetype Chapter 2 line. This is a line under the Archetype brand that consists of two cigars produced by Drew Estate – Initiation and Axis Mundi.  In addition the company has updated the packaging of both of these cigars.

Archetype was announced back in July, 2016 and was released shortly after the IPCPR Trade Show. According to Ventura Cigar Company, the Chapter 2 cigars almost immediately sold out. The company says the inventory has now been restored, and will now be more readily available.
“The exceptional blends of the Initiation and Axis Mundi cigars are unchanged in this second release,” says Benjamin Winokur, Marketing Manager, Ventura Cigar Company. “We’ve updated the artwork on the bands, but have otherwise left the perfection of these smokes alone. The only real difference of this batch versus the initial Chapter 2 release is its wider distribution. Initiation and Axis Mundi will finally be easier for customers to find. And that’s something to be excited about.”

Archetype was released under two sub brands: Series A and Series B. Series A consists of three cigars produced at Davidoff-owned factories while Series B consists of the Drew Estate produced offerings. Recently Series A and Series B has been rebranded Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 respectively.

Archetype Initiation features an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper over Nicaraguan tobaccos. It is offered in four sizes: Corona (5 x 46), Robusto (5 x 54), Toro (6 x 52) and Churchill (7 × 48). Pricing ranges from $10.25 to $13.00 per cigar.

The cigar is a medium brown and the wrapper does not appear oily. It has an average feel in the hand.

The test draw after cutting the cap was very good. The initial flavors were a tangy cedar with strawberry notes, white chocolate, light black coffee base, and a white pepper which I rated at a 7 1/2. Even at this early stage I can detect the white chocolate changing to a caramel.

2 inches in (30 minutes) the flavors are changing. Now they are a tangy orange citrus with strawberry notes, caramel, and brown sugar with a light coffee base. The pepper seems to be a mix of white and black pepper at this point. The coffee is a little more pronounced. The cigar is very sweet. The finish is a mix of caramel and cedar and there is a nice amount of lingering pepper. The cigar is medium bodied. The first third is rated at a 92.

4 inches in (60 minutes) the flavors are still intact but there is an additional flavor of chocolate. It adds more sweetness but it's not overly prominent. It's rather subtle but you can detect it. The cigar is still medium bodied. All the flavors are mixing well at this point. The cigar is somewhat complex as it continues to make changes. The second third score is also a 92.

The cigar lasted 1 hour 31 minutes. I did not expect that since it had an average feel in the hand. The chocolate notes increased and mixed well with the tangy citrus and strawberry notes. The brown sugar and caramel notes were pretty much gone. The elevated sweet chocolate notes replaced them. The black coffee base remained and was somewhat elevated. The pepper remained good and seemed to change to a straight black at the end. The finish was still one of caramel with a light amount of cedar. The cigar remained medium bodied. This cigar, to me, was complex as it made many changes. But, I like that. This is a good cigar that is not powerful but very flavorful. I rated the final third also a 92.

Overall Score: 92

Cigar Dojo Collaborates with Cubariqueño on Protocol K9

DENVER, CO (TUESDAY, March 13, 2018) —— Cigar Dojo, the leader in cigar social
media, and Cubariqueño, a heavy favorite in the craft cigar industry, have collaborated
to introduce an intense smoking experience that manages to be all bark... and bite!

Law enforcement have been aided by man's best friend in hunting down criminals since
the middle ages, using bloodhounds for their tracking capabilities. In modern times,
more agile and powerful breeds have been selected, such as the German Shepherd,
Belgian Malinois, and Dutch Shepherd. Through extensive training, these canines are
often considered more dependable than an officer's own sidearm, using their size,
agility, and speed to apprehend criminals in some of the most dire situations.

Since launching in 2015, Cubariqueño has focused on the company founder's
backgrounds in law enforcement, debuting the fan-favorite Protocol cigar. This was
followed by the Protocol Probable Cause and Protocol Themis in successive years.
Now, using Cigar Dojo and their close ties to canine law enforcement as inspiration, the
two companies have collaborated to embody the heavy-hitting voraciousness, size, and
grace of the mighty "fur missile," as the dogs have become known.

"This cigar has special meaning to me," commented Eric Guttormson, owner of Cigar
Dojo. "My brother-in-law is a K9 officer and has had some incredible K9 companions:
JR, Max, Thor, and his newest officer, Arrow, are an amazing benefit to the law
enforcement community. Creating a cigar project to honor these awesome animals and
their handlers means a lot to the Dojo crew."

Protocol K9 by Cigar Dojo and Cubariqueño introduces a full-bodied pepper bomb
explosion onto the palate. As with all other Protocol cigars, this beast is crafted at the
renowned La Zona factory in Estelí. The blend is Nicaraguan through and through,
topped with a dark and oily Nicaraguan Habano Rosado wrapper. While K9 demands
your attention like a Belgian Malinois chasing down a bank robber, this Nicaraguan puro
is all business—not unlike the canines it's named after.

The cigars arrive in a short and stout 5" x 56 "Fur Missile" robusto extra vitola, being
sold exclusively through Famous Smoke Shop (online and B&M). Sales begin at 12pm
(Eastern Time) on Friday, March 23rd, through Famous' online store; there will be an
earlier start (10am) at the physical store location in Easton, PA. A limited allocation of
3,000 Protocol K9 cigars have been rolled, retailing for $89.99 per bundle of 10 cigars.
The release of Protocol K9 will coincide with a special launch event at Famous Smoke
Shop and their in-house Leaf Cigar Bar, where the Cigar Dojo staff and Cubariqueño will
be in attendance.

Bill Ives, co-owner of Cubariqueño Cigar Company commented, "Working with Cigar
Dojo has been a blessing with this project. Juan and I started out being active members
with the Dojo and to collaborate with them on a cigar is a true blessing. The Dojo is the
present and future of cigar smoking involving social media."

Patina Habano Bronze (Toro 6 x 52)

Video review HERE.

(Description taken from website)
Patina Cigars, the brand that is a partnership between Mombacho Cigars and Mo Maali has shipped its first two cigars, the Patina Connecticut and the Patina Habano.

Maali and Mombacho announced Patina Cigars last year. A soft launch was held at Casa de Montecristo Chicago.  Since then Maali has also joined Mombacho Cigars as that company’s National Sales Manager.

Patina cigars are produced at Mombacho Cigars at the company’s Casa Favilli factory located in Granada, Nicaragua. What is significant about the Patina releases is that this is the first time that Mombacho is using tobaccos outside of Nicaragua.

“Patina is the example of how blending is an extremely complex process! The Connecticut will completely change the idea of what a mild cigar should be and the habano will surprise with its unique profile. Both cigars are tremendously different of what we are used to smoking and we are very excited about their release,” said Mombacho President and Master Blender Claudio Sgroi. in a press release.

“Patina is an oxidation process that, over time, produces a green film over bronze or copper (i.e. a statue or building). In the same spirit, our experiences in life shape our opinions, attitudes and beliefs. Just as those buildings underneath the Patina retain their original character, we too as human beings will always be ourselves at our core. No matter what happens in life, always be true to yourself,” commented Maali “Learning about tobacco and blending from Claudio is like learning how to paint from Leonardo Da Vinci. It is a privilege to have my cigars produced at Casa Favilli and I am excited for the journey ahead.”

Wrapper: Ecuadorian Habano
Binder: Nicaraguan
Filler: Nicaragua and Pennsylvania
Country of Origin: Nicaragua (Casa Favilli)

Artifact: 7 x 49 (Churchill)
Oxidation: 6 x 56 (Double Toro)
Bronze: 6 x 52 (Toro) REVIEWED TODAY
Rustic: 5 x 52 Robusto

The cigar has a good feel in the hand which I hope translates into a long burn time.

The test draw after cutting the cap was good. The initial flavors were a little different for me; a candy-like orange citrus which reminded me of a baby aspirin, a touch of whipping cream, a touch of chocolate, and the flavor of lead (not something you desire in a cigar). There was a white pepper which I rated at a 6. I am hopeful the lead flavor will go away and to be hones I expect it to but we'll have to wait and see.

At the first third point (35 minutes) the cigar is burning evenly and slowly. You can just about throw out the initial flavors. They have changed quite a bit. Now you have the candy-like orange citrus that almost has carbonated notes, brown sugar, cinnamon, and sweet chocolate. I not longer had the lead flavor which is a big plus. The finish is a straight sweet cream with a modest amount of lingering white pepper. The cigar is medium bodied. The flavors settled down into a nice combination and it happened a little before the first third point. With the revision in the flavors the score for the first third is a 91.

At the 2/3 point (1 hour 9 minutes) I got a pronounced coffee base. I also got raw almonds on the end of the draw. The candy-like orange citrus is affected by the heavy coffee notes decreasing some of their sweetness. You also still have the cinnamon, brown sugar and chocolate. The pepper is unchanged. The finish is still a sweet cream but there are also some light chocolate notes. The cigar is slowly moving up in strength. It is now a touch above medium bodied but not quite medium to full bodied. With the pronounced coffee and raw almond notes the 2/3 score dropped to a 90 but it's still a good cigar.

The cigar lasted 1 hour 35 minutes which is a long burn time for a toro. The nice feel in the had at the outset did transfer into a nice burn time. The flavors merged into a nice mix. They were the same as the last segment but in a more even mix. The cigar moved to a definite medium to full bodied status. Although this cigar started off a little shaky it settled down into a nice cigar with nice flavors. This was a totally new cigar to me but I purchased it at a local shop so look for them and give them a try. The final third score is also a 90.

Overall Score: 90

Southern Draw Rose of Sharon Toro (6 x 52)

Video review HERE.

(Description taken from website)
In 2017 Southern Draw Cigars unveiled its second Connecticut Shade offering, the Rose of Sharon. The Rose of Sharon is the company’s second Connecticut Shade cigar following up the QuickDraw Connecticut. While the QuickDraw Connecticut is a line that focuses on smaller, thinner connoisseur sizes, the Rose of Sharon offers a different blend in a box-press format utilizing what can be considered more traditional sizes for the U.S. market. The cigar pays tribute to Southern Draw Cigars’ Chief Evangelist and Founder Robert Holt‘s wife Sharon.

In addition to the Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, Rose of Sharon features Nicaraguan tobaccos in the binder and filler. The filler also utilizes Dominican Piloto Cubano. As with all Southern Draw Cigars, the Rose of Sharon is produced at AJ Fernandez’s Tabacalera Fernandez.

Wrapper: Ecuadorian Connecticut
Binder: Nicaraguan
Filler: Nicaraguan (Viso, Seco); Dominican Piloto Cubano (Ligero)
Country of Origin: Nicaragua (Tabacalera Fernandez)
Toro: 6 x 52

The cigar is a light brown in color and features a closed foot.

The test draw after cutting the cap was good even with the closed foot. The initial flavors were sweet cream, pink grapefruit, brown sugar, cinnamon, and black coffee. There was also black pepper which I rated at a 7. There was quite of pepper on the finish at the outset The finish started out as a buttery cream. 

2 inches in (24 minutes) the pink grapefruit seems to be more of a straight citrus flavor. Now there are the addition of caramel notes. The cigar has a touch of bitterness but the caramel notes hold down the sharpness of the bitter notes. The cream notes seem to have developed into caramel notes. The coffee holds the base and the pepper remains good. The cigar is mild to medium at this point. The finish is now a straight cream with some lingering black pepper. The first third score is an 86.

At the midpoint (40 minutes) I noticed white chocolate notes. They were semi-sweet but they gave the flavors a thickness. Your flavors are a pink grapefruit (it seemed to move back to that), caramel, light brown sugar, light cinnamon, and semi-sweet white chocolate with a coffee base. The bitterness is still hanging around. I find you have that sometimes with a Connecticut wrapper. The pepper is still pretty good and the finish is unchanged. The midpoint score is an 86.

At the 2/3 point (59 minutes) the only thing that has changed is the strength. It is now medium to full bodied. The other flavor notes are still in play. Since nothing changed but the strength I am maintaining a score of 86 for the 2/3 point.

The cigar lasted 1 hour 15 minutes. There were no flavor changes from the final third to the end. The strength remained at medium to full bodied. I found this to be a good, average Connecticut cigar with below average sweetness and some bitterness. It was enjoyable but not remarkable. With no changes the final third score was also an 86.

Overall Score: 86

Southern Draw Kudzu Toro (6 x 52)

Video review HERE

The Kudzu is Southern Draw's initial installment. It is designed to pair well with craft brews, boutique wines and spirits. Southern Draw cigars are made in the AJ Fernandez factory in Esteli, Nicaragua.

(from the Southern Draw website)


Wrapper: Ecuadorian Cuban-Seed Habano Oscuro
Binder: Nicaraguan
Filler: Nicaraguan

Vitola sizes:
ROBUSTO 5.5 X 54
TORO 6 X 52
GORDO 6.5 X 60

Line extensions –

The cigar is a medium brown with reddish tones. It is well made and the foot is closed.

The test draw after cutting the cap was a bit firm but that was probably due to the closed foot. I lit the cigar and the draw improved. The initial flavors were a citrus flavor which combined with an apple flavor. There was also caramel and brown sugar. There was a black coffee base and black pepper which I rated at a 7. The initial flavors were pretty good.

2 inches in (28 minutes) the sweetness is really going down. Now there is a leathery flavor and the coffee is quite earthy. Together they give the cigar a "dirty" flavor. They overwhelm the sweeter flavors. The cigar has gone from one extreme to the other. The cigar is medium bodied. The finish is short and has the flavor of a leathery cream with a minor amount of lingering black pepper. The cigar has lost some points from the initial light up. My score for the first third is an 87.

At the 2/3 point (56 minutes) the cigar is burning evenly and we're already at an hour. However, the cigar continues to go downhill. It has lost more sweetness. The leathery earthy coffee is dominant. The pepper is still pretty good and it's actually up on the finish. The sweet flavors are 2/3 to 3/4 of what they were at the first third. The finish is now one of leather. With the decreased sweetness and greatly increased leathery earthy coffee the second third score is an 85.

The cigar lasted 1 hour 15 minutes. It continued on it's downhill trajectory. The sweet flavors were very faint at the end while the leathery earthy coffee was quite dominant. The strength remained at medium bodied. The finish was unchanged. The cigar started with such promise. Had I scored the initial flavors I would have given it an 89. However, that was the high point for me. The cigar went downhill from there. The final third score was an 83. Even though the average of all the scores is actually an 85 I am using personal discretion in my final score. I had high hopes for this cigar but it did not live up to my expectations. I have 2 other Southern Draw cigars to review so perhaps they will do better.

Overall Score: 84

Altadis U.S.A. Expands Distribution On Henry Clay Rustic Cheroot

'An Extrodinarily Robust Blend'

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Altadis U.S.A. is expanding into national distribution the latest extension of the modern Henry Clay lineup— Henry Clay Rustic Cheroot -- this heritage brand’s third such entry.

Rustic Cheroot is a robust cigar that follows in the traditions set by the previous Henry Clay Tattoo and Henry Clay Stalk Cut releases. Rustic Cheroot is a small, fuller-bodied cigar, with a gratifying smoking experience that harkens back to an old-world cigar culture.

“Cheroot” is a long-running cigar term, often referring to a smaller, thinner cigar featuring two open ends. The Henry Clay Rustic Cheroot is a modern iteration of this classic variety, with the serviceable addition of a pigtail cap and closed foot. Rustic Cheroot cigars are meticulously made using a broadleaf wrapper and Honduran binder, and a specially selected blend of filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic. Typically known as Capa Dura, this special blend is derived using only the finest ”reborn” tobacco leaves, producing a rich, stronger blend, with an exceptionally rustic complexity of flavor.

Rustic Cheroot’s distinct filler blend pays homage to the small cigars smoked many years ago by the tobacco field workers of Honduras’ western region. These committed workhands once engaged in an unspoken tradition of sneaking into the farm’s curing barns, gathering a small amount of tobacco leaves from various pilons, and crafting it into small cigars to smoke throughout the day. With lower profits ensuing, owners of the fields took notice, and put a stop to the workers’ practice of using a small amount of their quality tobaccos. To compensate for the loss of their daily pastime, the workers began leaving tobacco plants in the fields after the choice leaves had been picked, and instead smoked the second wave of tobaccos grown in each batch. These tobaccos, later referred to as ”reborn” leaves, had a rough exterior, but surprised workers with a strong, complex and more enjoyable profile.

Rich with flavor, aroma and history, this modern Henry Clay adaptation promises to be a captivating release for every mature [LM1] adult smoker. Each Rustic Cheroot cigar comes available in a compact 5 5/8 x 38 vitola, and is sold in boxes of 20. Priced at an MSRP of only $4.25 per cigar, Rustic Cheroot is an exciting, new way to familiarize contemporary connoisseurs with the iconic Henry Clay banner, revered by cigar enthusiasts for over a century and a half.

Full distribution to national trade channels is expected to begin April 2018. For more information on Henry Clay Rustic Cheroot, please contact Richard Alvarez, at

Joya de Nicaragua Celebrates its 50th Anniversary

Wednesday, February 28, 2018 — Esteli, Nicaragua- 50 years ago, Joya de Nicaragua pioneered the Nicaraguan cigar industry. In 1968, it became the first tobacco factory to craft premium handmade cigars in Nicaragua. Since day one, Joya has been committed to achieving the highest levels of excellence, and has therefore established itself as the standard for Nicaraguan cigar quality.

Smoking a Joya de Nicaragua cigar means smoking the most Nicaraguan cigar. Not only the one that started it all, but also the one that set the precedent that has helped establish Nicaraguan cigars and tobacco as the most sought after in the industry.

But Joya de Nicaragua isn’t just a cigar company; it is lifeline, it is struggle, it is will to forge ahead and renew, renew, renew – it is Nicaragua itself. 50 years are easier said than done. In that time JDN has evolved to be Nicaragua’s most international brand, with presence in over 50 markets, and counting. This success is unprecedented and attributed to its skillful and resilient people.

The history of Joya de Nicaragua is intertwined with the history of Nicaragua itself. From being the official cigar of the White House, and being partly owned by dictator Anastasio Somoza. To having the factory bombed and burned down during the revolution only to be reconstructed by the workers later. Joya de Nicaragua’s history is rich and complex, a history of perseverance and resilience.

“At the end of the day, Joya de Nicaragua is a brand that sells cigars. But what matters to me is that this brand has been the force through which the people of the factory have helped shape the history of Nicaragua itself.”, said Dr. Alejandro Martínez Cuenca, Chairman of Joya de Nicaragua.

Joya begins its next half a century with a diverse, yet solidified portfolio accompanied by a packaging update for most of its brands. While in 1968 Joya de Nicaragua was the first and only brand of the factory, Joya’s offering has dramatically evolved. Its portfolio now includes the JOYA line, Antaño family, Cuatro Cinco and more. In short, a wide variety of brands for all type of smokers and at different price points.

“We don’t just want to celebrate our 50th anniversary, rather put all our acquired life experience and cigar knowledge to set the groundwork for the next 50 years to come.”, he continued.

Joya de Nicaragua will continue celebrating its anniversary throughout the year by releasing the history, secrets and anecdotes that have shaped the world-renowned brand and its products. Events will be held all over the world and audiences will get a chance to participate in special giveaways. To add to the festivities, Joya will also debut an exclusive 50th anniversary cigar later this year.

Joya de Nicaragua is proud to have fifty years of perseverance and hard work under its belt. Join the celebration of its most notable milestones while immersing yourself in the history of Nicaraguan Premium Cigars. Remember to tag #Joya50 to be a part of the conversation.

Macanudo announces Inspirado Red; debuts March 26, 2018

Leon Jimenes Prestige Churchill (7 x 47)

Video review HERE.

The Leon Jimenes Prestige Churchill is the reblending of the classic Leon Jimenes brand which was first released in the 1970s. The cigars come protected in aluminum tubes for maximum freshness. The wrapper is a Corojo leaf with Dominican binder and Domincan and Nicaraguan fillers. 

Wrapper: Dominican Corojo
Binder: Dominican
Filler: Dominican and Nicaraguan

Made in the La Aurora factory.

The cigar is a medium brown and has an average feel in the hand for a churchill of this size.

The test draw after cutting the cap was very good. The initial flavors were an obvious sweet white chocolate. You also have a tangy citrus/dry cedar combination, brown sugar, and a light black coffee base. There was black pepper rated at a 6 1/2 to 7. The cigar comes across as very mild, but flavorful. 

About 2 inches in (22 minutes) I got the addition of caramel notes. I did not have as much dry cedar but still had the orange citrus notes which were quite sweet. I still had plenty of white chocolate and brown sugar. So, with the addition of the caramel notes the cigar maintained, or increased it's sweetness. The black coffee base was elevated. It was more noticeable. The pepper is slowly increasing on the front end. The finish is a sweet cream with some caramel notes and a light amount of lingering black pepper. The cigar is still mild bodied. The flavors are very nice in this cigar but it has no power to speak of. This type of cigar has a place in the rotation for me but only at selective times. Due to the nice, sweet flavors I am giving the first third a score of 87.

At the midpoint (44 minutes) the nice, sweet orange citrus is no longer there and the dry cedar notes are back. The white chocolate is very elevated. You cannot miss it. The caramel notes are secondary and elevated as well. There is still a light amount of brown sugar. The coffee is still maintaining the base. The pepper is unchanged, as well as the strength; mild. The finish is now one of cream and white chocolate. The lingering black pepper is slowly moving up. The flavors in this cigar are still very nice but due to the lack of any strength it is causing the cigar to be somewhat boring. For that reason I am lowering the midpoint score to an 86.

The cigar lasted 1 hour 21 minutes. In the final third the tangy citrus and dry cedar combination made a slight resurgence. The white chocolate decreased somewhat, as did the brown sugar and caramel notes. The pepper was still good and seemed to keep increasing slightly. The finish was a cream and caramel combination. The cigar eventually reached a mild to medium strength. This is a mild cigar for the most part. Every experienced cigar smoke has a mild or two in their arsenal. Perhaps this could be that cigar. If you gravitate toward milder cigars with flavor this would be a great cigar for you. 

Overall Score: 86
