Filed Under (Cigar Reviews, Quick Review, Todays Pick) by David on 23-03-2010

Quick Info

Again, the Ambos Mundos is the first budget conscious cigar from Tatuaje. It is said it uses B and C grade tobacco based on appearance and fermentation. For some reason the Ambos Mundos No. 2 is far better than the No. 1

Today’s Pick – Don Pepin Garcia Cuban Classic

Unfortunately I didn’t take any photos prior to smoking this and I only picked up one. But this 5″ x 54 Belicoso was very surprising. It had a perfect draw and a large smoke volume.

Let me start off by saying that I went into smoking this stick with great anticipation as the Anejo is one of my absolute favorite smokes and has been since I first enjoyed one back somewhere in time in the earlier part of this decade. Anyway, on to the review…

Today’s Pick – Cubao Maduro Belicoso

I have seen this cigar in many shops and have overlooked it for a while now but after seeing others review it I decided I would give it a shot. I also bought a pretty wide range of Don Pepin cigars last night so even more to come.

We are adding another cigar reviewer, Alex to the Cigar Estate family! I’ve know Alex since 1998 and even remember smoking a bunch of cigars with him during that time. He will be kicking off his first review with the 2009 Arturo Fuente Anejo – Reserva Shark 77.  Overall he should be a great addition when it comes to reviews and rolling out some of the custom coding being added on to the site within a few months.

So please help us welcome Alex to the family!

Some Quick Updates

Filed Under (Related Events, Site News) by David on 05-03-2010

Yesterday I went to a Tampa Cigar MeetUp event and met some really great people. I would highly recommend this group who seem pretty active in the community (I just signed up myself) so if your in the Tampa area and dig cigars be sure to sign up by looking for the group The Dutch Maduro.

I also have some more reviews to post on the Padilla Dominus and the Cain Habano. For some reason I always seem to be a tad overloaded.

One final note is I seem to have broken the banners when I upgraded the banner server yesterday to see if it would fix some of the quirkiness but it seems like it only got worse. Anyways I should have that working when I have more than 5 minutes to look at it, in other words this weekend.
