Today’s Pick / Quick Review – Hammer + Sickle La Habana Tradicion Serie

By David | April 22, 2010 | 1 Comment

Quick Intro Let me start by saying the marketing behind the Hammer & Sickle brand is pretty heavy.

With that said the presentation of these cigars is amazing, they come in an amazing crystal …

By David | April 18, 2010 | 1 Comment

Quick Info I have been a fan of the Cain F since they were introduced in the 5 packs. The new 2010 Cain F cigar is no different. The F in Cain F stands for Fuerte, when translated from Spanish means Strong. It’s good to see that you can now buy these as single cigar …
