Paul’s List

Tim’s List

  • My Father Le Bijou 1922 Petit Robusto – A fantastic stick that I finally got around to revisiting during my holiday break. If you like dark rich flavors, I recommend grabbing a few to try.
  • Ramon Allones Specially Selected (2005) – Nice medium bodied smoke. Flavors included wood, nuts, and a mild spice. I loved the toasty finish on second half. Construction was A+. Great gift and smoke! "Box Worthy"
  • La Aurora Preferidos 1903 Cameroon No. 1 – Probably one of the best Cameroon smokes out there. Flavor profile includes some mild wood, sweetness, and that familiar Cameroon spice that reminds me of ginger. A refreshing finish and enjoyable medium bodied smoke. "Box Worthy"
  • Davidoff Colorado Claro Special R – A visually stunning cigar. I mean it is gorgeous. While editing the pictures for the review I wanted to grab another. Flavor profile includes nice mix of graham cracker, nuts, and a faint caramel sweetness. I detected some coffee bean and cocoa undertones on the second half. Perfect construction, burn, and draw. Recommend grabbing a box or two or three.
