John Aylesbury - Dragon Blend 100g
Superior blend
Serious automatic with an incredible aroma. Mellow mixture with no bite and some curly cuts. One of my best aro so far !

CAO - CAO Gold Sampler pack
Gold
Great Maduro & Connecticut Sampler

Drucquer & Sons - Red Lion 100g
For The Discriminating Smoker
Fast burning tobacco, but a very enjoyable mild English mixture with a nice touch of black cavendish

Lane Limited - La Gloria Cubana 1.75oz
Virginia ?
No hints of Virginia for me but a good Latakia / Perique mixture at a reasonable price.

Hearth & Home - Fusilier's Ration 1.75oz
Old-fashioned top note
Old-fashioned top note : Tonquin Bean (?) A little bit milder than Bengal Slices (for me anyway) but very good crumble cake latakia mixture. Easy to pack and to light. Recommended.

Peterson - Sherlock Holmes 50g
Hybrid Hound
Effectively not an aromatic or a straight blend. Great tin aroma, great cut and quality leafs as always for Peterson's. Not a bad hybrid. but I can understand why its not everyone's cup of tea. Mild but enjoyable, and no bite for me. Worth a try.

Cornell & Diehl - Awakened Elder 2oz
Cthulhu would smoke that !
Perfectly balanced spicy mixture. Just enough latakia for a very enjoyable smoke.

CAO - World Sampler
World Tour
Great sampler ! Very enjoyable.

Sutliff - Lord Nelson
England expects that every man will do his duty
Mild American English Blend. Pleasant taste but not very complex. I personally prefer more latakia. Worth a try if you like Frog Morton.

Sutliff - D64 Queen Anne's Revenge
Barbados Revenge
Sutliff's Barbados Plantation in bulk. Decent Aro. Great room note. No bite.

Peterson - Special Reserve Limited Edition 2017 100g
Great stuff !
Wonderful aromatic. Superb room note. No bite. A ++

Especialeeeeeeeesssss...
Pretty good all around everyday smoke. A+

La Flor Dominicana - Double Ligero 700 (Gordo)
A+++
Great powerful smoke from start to finish....

Cornell & Diehl - Haunted Bookshop 2oz
Kind of a bland blend (?)
Easy burning burley blend. Not bad, but you have to search for the perique and no trace of DFK. Easy to go mixture...

CAO - Gold Maduro Corona Gorda
Spicy (?)
A good everyday stick, but very average. Not Great, not bad, just seriously average...

Dunhill - Navy Rolls 50g
Flue-cured magic
Beautiful coins indeed and superior tin smell. Herbal tones and fig notes. I personally prefer this to Escudo, but they are almost similar. Very enjoyable cool VaPer Smoke. No bite. In the rotation !

Cornell & Diehl - Speakeasy Navy Blend 2oz
Can't wait that long...
You can wait 10-15 years if you want too, but right now this stuff is pretty good. Very interesting, complex and rich mixture. The Dark Fired Kentucky is not overpowering, but the "N" content is serious. My first and certainly not my last Cornell & Diehl.

Pretty good but pricey...
Bold indeed. Never smoked anything like it. Not for the beginner but very rich and powerful. Serious N dose. Great alone or blended with another tobacco. Easy to light, burns well and no bite. Nice smoky tin smell and enjoyable room note (for me, not for the wife). In my rotation !!!

De Luxe Indeed...
Easy to light slow burning tobacco with pretty notes of figs. Excellent sweet mild VaPer and a very satisfying must try. In my rotation with pleasure. No bite. A+

Good draw, great construction, but just like smoking a chocolate cake. Some may enjoy, but too sweet for my taste.You should try only if you really (really) like flavored cigar.

Punch - Rare Corojo Pita
Corojo (?)
A robust reddish box-pressed beauty with lot of flavor. A Must Try !

Villiger - Original Export 1.5oz
Pleasant surprise..
A nice aroma not too sweet aromatic. Good all-day smoke at a great price. No bite.

Newminster - No.23 Blackberry Brandy
Satisfying !
Great aroma, mild but rich. Pretty good. No bite.

Drew Estate - Tabak Especial Negra Corona
Fix of coffee
A smell approved by wife fast burning cigar, with a nice draw and a good construction. Interesting mix between an infused and a premium. Not exactly my cup of tea, but worth a try.

Hoyo de Monterrey - Excalibur No. 2 English Claro
Average
A good everyday stick. No more, no less...

H. Upmann - Vintage Cameroon Corona
Perfect corona !
Velvety stick. Notes of cocoa, perfect draw, and superb construction. YumYum !

A nice slice and rub mild tobacco. Takes a couple of relight and a little bit pricey, but very enjoyable. No bite.

Drew Estate - Liga Privada #9 Robusto
Holy Smoke !
Uneven draw and burn, but exactly what a Premium cigar should be. Earthy and herbal flavors. Rich and complex indeed. A must !

Perdomo - Champagne Noir Corona Extra
Average
Beautiful stick, good flavors of licorice and anis, but hard draw and don't want to stay lit. An average beauty...

I'll buy again (and again)
A 60 minutes box pressed pleasure. Good draw, good construction, perfect ash and creamy notes of cocoa all the way. In my Top Ten.

Partagas - Black Label Classico
Tasty Maduro
Beautiful oily stick. The first and last third are very mild, but the second is like a punch in the face. Licorice, earthy notes and perfect ash. Not my first choice in the future, but worth a try.

Ashton - VSG Illusion
Very good
Hard draw at first, but the second and last third have wonderful aroma, flavors and complexity. Solid construction and a real pleasure to smoke. A must !

Cohiba - Black Robusto Crystal Tube
Dark pleasure...
Superb construction. Rich but not too powerful. A great Cigar indeed...

Macanudo - Duke of York Cafe
Good everyday Smoke
Constant creamy taste and good construction. Perfect for any occasion.

Macanudo - Vintage Maduro 1997 Robusto
Oily and Yummy !
Heavy draw at first, but a pleasant surprise. Love the steel gadget. Perfect ash and very interesting flavors.

Gurkha - Heritage Robusto
Wrapper of steel...
Seriously uneven draw. The wrapper takes a larger amount of time to burn than the rest of the cigar. Not bad, but no note of chocolate or coffee here. The last third have a powerful tone. My first Gurkha, so I'm a little disapointed.

Don Pepin Garcia - Cuban Classic 1979 Robusto
Pretty, Pretty Good
A nice surprise. Good draw and full of flavour.

Roberto Duran - Neya F8 Loyalist
Serious cigar :)
Great Smoke. Draw a little bit loose, but flavorful from start to finish. Not too powerful. Can be an everyday stick, no problem. Bravo !
