I have been looking forward to trying a cigar from the Trinidad line for quite some time. Although the price of the Robusto Extra scared me off a bit, I ended up splurging on one because I couldn't seem to find a Trinidad available in any other format in Marseille. Needless to say, when I eventually lit this baby up, I was expecting a great deal from it.

Bahia Gold cigars are made in Nicaragua by Tony Borhani using an aged (4 years) Ecuadorian sumatra wrapper as well as a filler/binder from Dominican Republic. After being rolled, they undergo additional twelve months of aging. Don't expect to find more information on their website which is very incomplete.
I purchased a box of Bahia Gold Churchills a few years ago and have been smoking one every 2-3 months. I decided it was time to post a review when I reached for the last one.

The Cuba Aliados Miami is manufactured by Reyes Family Cigars, who are the makers of Puros Indios Cigars. These cigars are a different blend than the regular Cuba Aliados line, and are made in Miami instead of Honduras. I had a hard time finding background information on this cigar, as apparently it is a new release.

Sancho Panza is an old Cuban brand created in 1852. It is not a well-known line that contains less than 10 cigars, some of them (Bachilleres, Non Plus) being rather average smokes whereas others, for example Coronas Gigantes or Molinos, the object of this review, are on par with cigars from major producers.

While in Vegas a few weeks ago, I picked up two of these cigars. As I understand it, Casa Fuente is the only place where you can purchase a black label Forbidden. However, the cigar is the same blend as the regular Opus X banded LBMF.

Agent 10- Transmission #019

This sneaky target has been up to no good for some time now, with a rap sheet as long as my arm. 4.5/5 stars in European Cgiar Journal; a 90 rating by Cigar Aficionado. We had to take this target in. After he found out we were on his trail, he went into hiding and underwent plastic surgery - he thought we had lost him; he was wrong. Joining me on this mission is my trusty partner in Spydom, Agent G. Together we tracked the target to an inconspicuous walk-in humidor in Monona, Wisconsin. There we apprehended the target and used our ancient methods of interrogation on him.
