Ambos Mundos, which means both worlds is the newest line of cigars from Pete Johnson and Tatuaje. Made, like all of Pete’s cigars, by Pepin Garcia this line of cigars is an economy cigar whose release is aptly timed given current economic conditions. Pete had this to say about it:

“My original idea for the Tatuaje brand was for it to be not as expensive as it turned out to be,” said Johnson, “but having it made in Miami kind of set that expensive precedent, so I made this cigar partly due to the economy and partly because this is where I originally wanted the cigar to be priced.”

This review is submitted by Michael A.K.A. @Se7en_Vandalay, our good friend and cigar aficionado. Enjoy!

Late last week I received two samples of the ORTSAC 1962 from Victor Vitale of The Cigar Agency. From the product literature and their website, I learned that "The Cigar Agency is a manufacturer, importer and distributor of premium of cigars and cigar accessories." The ORTSAC 1962 is listed as their premier brand. It has been aged for five years and is hand rolled in the Dominican Republic. They are distributed in cedar sleeve of 72 inside a U.S. Army ammunition box, which can be used as a humidor. (Imagine packing that to your next herf. HOOAH!)

Winston Churchill is a line of cigars produced by Davidoff in the Dominican Republic. It is supported by Sir Winston Churchill's grandson. 4 different vitolas are produced and each one's name is related to a certain important event in the life of the famous Prime Minister. Marrakesh is a 6x50 toro; it appears that Sir Winston loved this city for its sunny weather and the special inspiration it gave to him. I purchased my specimen in Paris and smoked it straight away in a café nearby.

Illusione ECCJ

Reviewed by Agent 15 at  The Cigar Spy

This Illusione, made for the European Cigar Cult Journal, is a good smoke though not as good as original cigars like CG:4.

Earthy and leathery, this maduro is far from overwhelming.

This is another creation from Pete Johnson of Tatuaje cigars. “El Triunfador” means “The Winner” in Spanish and is a line that, as I understand it, is being introduced in limited quantities to preserve the trademark. Let me just say that, as far as I’m concerned, this cigar lives up to its name.

The Padrón 1964 Anniversary Series line was introduced in 1994 to commemorate the Padrón Cigar Company’s 30th anniversary. The line consists of ten sizes that are all available in sun-grown natural and maduro wrappers and all the sizes are box pressed. All tobacco used in these cigars is reportedly aged for four years. Due to the immense popularity of this line of cigars, it has become one of the most counterfeited non-Cuban cigars in the world. To help protect their brand and their customers Padrón introduced a few security measures to make counterfeiting more difficult. They added a specially designed double band featuring an individually numbered guarantee label. The back side of the labels is also printed.

In this age of short stubby stogies, the Romeo y Julieta Churchill is a very impressive cigar. It also comes with a lot of background, having been the preferred cigar of Sir Winston Churchill. Bringing this cigar to your mouth one gets a sense of history, brought out by its classical length. I paired this cigar with filtered water, Gotan Project's 'Lunatico' and Peter Gabriel's 'Last Temptation'.

It had been about a year since I had last had an Anejo and I had never had a No. 55, so I was looking forward to revisiting this brand, which I have previously enjoyed. The 55 is similar in size to the Shark, which is slightly shorter and a 54 ring gauge. This cigar also came in a cedar sleeve, which isn't pictured. The tobacco used in these cigars is aged in cognac barrels for 6-8 months.
