La Riqueza is one of the new lines of cigars rolled out by Pete Johnson and Don Jose Pepin Garcia. The name means “The Riches” in Spanish. According to sales propaganda, this line is a departure from the Tatuaje character of full–bodied smokes, focusing on a full-flavored, medium-bodied experience. If this were the goal, they pierced the bullseye.

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.

Montecristo C 2003 Limited Edition

Origin : CubaMontecristo
Format : Corona Gorda
Size : 46 x 143 (5.6")
Release : 2003
Hand-Made
Price : $20+ each
More info about purchasing Montecristo cigars...

The Montecristo C is a cigar that you will not come across very often. A Corona Gorda, measuring 5.6″ by 46 Ring gauge, the C was released in 2003 as a part of the year’s Limited Edition release and had failed to impress, not justifying the increased anticipation that the Edicion Limitada extra band brought to it. However, after a couple of years of absence, the C’s can be seen again in a few online vendors and are said to be at their peak.
