When it comes to the Padron Maduro, the standard by which all Maduros are measured, the Padron method is unique in that Orlando Padron grows his own Maduro wrapper. This allow the company to hand cultivate and hand pick only the best Cuban-seed tobacco leaves in their own field. The Maduro wrappers are then entrusted to their most skilled Cubantrained torcedores. However, before being boxed the cigars are put aside for a minimum of three years of slow, carefully monitored aging. While there may not be many of the great Padron Maduro cigars, what there are are truly remarkable.

IMade with Cameroon leaf wrappers, or Connecticut wrappers on the Chateau series, Arturo Fuente cigars are well-made, mild to medium in body, and beautifully constructed. Looks, personality, dependability....if only they could cook your dinner, you wouldn’t need much else in this world.
MoyaRuiz proudly proclaims that Dim Mak is their most complex offering to date, as it features the company’s first use of fully aged proprietary Dominican tobaccos. The binder is from Nicaragua, and a gorgeous oily brown Habano wrapper grown in Ecuador completes this intense recipe. The result is a delicious medium to full bodied smoke with hearty notes of leather, coffee, earth, and a plethora of exotic spices. However, a written description does not do this stick full justice, as you will have to experience it yourself to appreciate its abundant complexity and refinement.
In a lot of ways, the La Jugada Claro No. 1 is a cigar that not only fills a spot in the MoyaRuiz portfolio, but very much fits in with what MoyaRuiz is all about. No doubt, a Connecticut Shade offering is something that MoyaRuiz didn’t have. However, MoyaRuiz is a little about unpredictability. The way the Claro No. 1 increased in strength and body was something I wasn’t expecting – especially considering the milder profile at the beginning. It isn’t that the cigar is going to evolve into a bold, power-bomb, but by the end of the cigar there is a noticeable difference in strength and body than what was at the beginning. In the end, it’s a very good and satisfying Connecticut Shade.

Make way for this incredibly special blend, featuring a careful mix of four distinct fillers from Nicaragua and Honduras with a generous amount of ligero and two binders – one Honduran, one Nicaraguan. The wrapper leaf is a thing of beauty, a stunner from the Trojes region of Honduras. Besides just the blend, the shape of this handmade is a real standout, with all sizes being rolled in the perfecto shape. All in all, Mundial is worth the wait, and it showed up right on time.
E-Stunner is a complete departure from E.P. Carillo’s typical fare, but in this case that’s a good thing....a very good thing. The blend was inspired by the popularity of energy drinks and is designed to errr....open your eyeballs. E-Stunner also marks the first time the company experimented with tobacco ratios, choosing a 50/50 mix of Dominican and Nicaraguan tobacco fillers as opposed to their standard 80/20. Plus, the wrapper utilized is harvested from a higher priming of the plant, for an extra punch of power. The result? A tasty blend that kicks things up a notch, well beyond what some sugar-laced energy shot ever could.

Surely you’ve heard about this cigar by now. The release of it was talked about on social media for months prior to its debut. Being a product of Drew Estate may have had something to do with the hype as well! It was released last year with both rave reviews and complaints about the construction. Fast-forward to now, the Herrera Esteli Lonsdale is a medium strength, borderline medium-full flavored cigar with an overlying white pepper/floral spice, complimented with notes of wood and nuts.
