I got this cigar from Brian the Lion of the Stogie Show. He was generous enough to let me into his personal stash of cigars that he brought back from his IPCPR Vegas trip.

When Brian and I were first chatting we thought this was a new cigar from Pete Johnson which it is not. The name very similar to the Tatuaje La Verite and the Veritas cigar band colors are very similar to La Verite cigar band colors. However after a little research we got it all cleared up and found out it’s a new cigar company who’s cigars are manufactured by Blue Mountain Cigars out of Miami.

Today’s Pick / Quick Review – Perdomo Cabinet Series LTD Maduro 10th Anniversary

Filed Under (Todays Pick) by David on Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

The Perdomo Cabinet Series LTD Maduro 10th Anniversary was recommended by fellow Tampa bloggers since I had not had a Perdomo yet that I have liked. They suggested either the Maduro or the Criollo in the Epicure size, so I purchased both. To be blunt the Maduro which I am reviewing here I did not enjoy all that much finding to be pretty boring in complexity however I found the Criollo to be pretty complex and decent overall.

So while I still smoke everyday I have been tied up with a ton of freelance so I am having to bunch these up for the last couple weeks. I have picked 5 form the past couple weeks but since some are repeats that I just wanted to smoke again.

The best two first…  Since they blew me away!

Jose Seijas

I was introduced to this cigar a few years ago by a friend in Seattle who said it was one of the best cigars he had ever had. While it was a little pricey I gave it a try and was sold back then. This Figurado Seijas was purchased from Tampa Humidor Feb. 7th 2010 for $15.00. Not cheap but every Seijas I have had has always been a great smoke. With a medium body and super smooth super clean and flavors of cedar and floral notes, I would have no problems recommending this cigar to anyone.
