As promised a review of Arturo Fuente Churchill. Let me say that this is not my favorite stick from this brand, but that's the one I smoked recently, so my memory is still fresh. A good average cigar with a very satisfying price/quality relationship.

A nice cigar to start an evening with, this Toro is gentle and obedient and provides a pleasant flavor yet lacks originality. The Griffin's Maduro doesn't really surprise you, that's a stogie you can always count on.

Reviewed by Denise at  Cigar Jack

Deliciously described, this exclusive cigar (unfortunately, seems like it's not available on the market yet) is probably going to become a new reference in the line of sweet stogies.

Arturo Fuente 8-5-8 Maduro

Reviewed by Walt at  Stogie Review

Very precise description of the Fuente's flavor. 8-5-8 Maduro is a decent cigar with a fair price/quality ratio.

Unfortunately, that's not an easy find (must be limited edition). La Gloria Cubana Tainos is very light and is perfect for a hot summer smoke with an expensive cocktail or (why not?) for a woman.
