Camacho Coyolar, some call it Camacho Black, or "Say Uncle".

Cigar size: 6x50. This is a powerhouse of a cigar. "Say Uncle" is a good name because this cigar is not for the rookie smoker! If you want a cigar-buzz, smoke this badboy! It's very bold, peppery, and full bodied. The ash was tight. If you like full bodied smokes, this is a must-try.

Score: 8.5

Perdomo ESV maduro robusto.

I've had this cigar since the April 2007 Sit Down when the Perdomo rep, Chris Harper, gave them out to everyone in attendance. The cigar is full bodied, but not a typical "sweet" maduro. Not overly peppery. It is very pleasing and seems to gain strength as you smoke it. The cigar is very well made. I'd say this is one of Perdomo's best!

Score: 8.0

While on a trip to the in-laws I feasted on some good chili and some good cigars! The first one was a Romeo Y Julieta churchill (Cuban).

This cigar is medium bodied with a very even draw. Not much in the way of pepper until the 2/3 point. This is a very good cigar every cigar lover should try one at some point!

Score: 9.0

Vegas Santiago torpedo.

I have a few of these cigars that were left over from the SC Sit Down. This cigar comes from a small factory in Costa Rica. These are very good cigars with a medium body to them. There is a floral hint to them and slight pepperness. These cigars are very smooth. You can buy them online at . This company has supported the SC Sit Down for the past 2 years and I hope they continue to do so. Eventhough these cigars are not a household name they are worthy of a high rating. They are very well made and taste great!

Score: 9.0
