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 Factory Press III is limited edition cigar with only 300 boxes released. Each box has 10 trays of 12 Factory Press III for 120 per box. The packaging was pretty interesting with wood separating each stick and at my B&M they had a sign that basically said don’t touch unless you are going to buy.

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.

So Ben and I are at SoHo Cigars with some cigar manufacturers and an ex-Buccaneer. I am choosing to go with an Esteban Carreras 10 Anos Toro Maduro because someone at another shop had mentioned they are similar to the Padron. Before I even start this review let me say this cigar is nothing like a Padron.
