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.

Quick Info

The JFR – “Just For Retailers” is a normally a brand that I would pass right over but the packaging looked interesting and the placement in the shop was with some cigars that I prefer.  When I picked it up to inspect it I noticed a heavy cocoa smell to it almost like a Drew Estates Naturals – Dirt.  I asked the guy at the shop about it but he hadn’t tried it and he hadn’t heard anything about cocoa in it but he did mention someone else asking the same question.  Made by Tabacalera Tropical – Casa Fernandez the first employer of Don Pepin once he left Cuba and rumored to be his main tobacco supplier.

So my whole Los Blancos introduction came from the Los Blancos Cigars President, Cesar Blanco. The story begins just a few weeks ago when earlier in the night myself and Ben were smoking Anejos down in Ybor City at King Corona. During our time at King Corona we had been chatting about the Alec Bradley Vice Press and wanted to go pick one up. So we finished our cigars and headed strait to a shop where we knew they had them. Arriving at SoHo Cigars we noticed Scott the owner of SoHo Cigars sit back and another guy popped up and started helping us out. We later found the guy who popped up was Cesar Blanco. Apparently according to Scott they were having an impromptu event that hadn’t even been announced. Cesar asked some great questions about our tastes and pointed Ben at the Los Blancos Criollo while I picked up the Los Blancos Nine Robusto. By the way I also picked up the Vice Press.
