Armando Ramos Lucky 8 toro (6x60)
This cigar has been sitting for over a year in my humidor. It was left from the 2007 SC Sit Down. Paul sent some of these for us to try. This is a very fat cigar with a very good draw. Very spicy with tones ranging from leather to caramel. The burn was a little off but the flavor stayed consistent. A very nice, spicy cigar. The spice takes over and the caramel is pretty much gone but this was a very enjoyable cigar.
Vegas de Santiago Don Luis churchill (7x48)
I've rated this cigar before but that was from a pre-production batch. I wanted to see how they were in full production. Well, in a word; Great! The cigar has a blast of spice and caramel with a hint of nuts. Great flavor!!!! This is an excellent cigar that is quite affordable at about $3. These are made in Costa Rica. Anyone can enjoy this fantastic cigar! You can get them at their website: https://www.vegassantiago.com/shop/
Oliva G maduro Perfecto (5 1/2x54)
Sweet maduro and spice! One of my favorite combinations! Very square pressed, shaped cigar. This cigar has a sweeter maduro than the Oliva O series, in my opinion. Very consistent. Hints of pepper noted. Very, very enjoyable cigar.

Puros Indios Special-Aged Piramide Maduro (6.7x64)
Maybe I expected too much from this cigar. When I looked at it, it looked fantastic! the shape, the color; I thought it would be fantastic! However, it only had hints of spice and maduro flavor. Very faint one's, at that! The flavor never really breaks through! I waited for it, but it never showed up. I must say, I'm disappointed with this cigar.

There is such a unique flavor with DPG cigars! It is hard to describe. There are notes of leather, caramel, pepper, earth, and spice. All his cigars have this "unique" flavor in various combinations. I happen to love his cigars! The finish is long and satisfying. Fantastic flavor! Medium to full bodied.
Finished the night off with a previously reviewed Pontillo maduro churchill! Nice!
See you next week!
