Today, Ray_I reviews a cheap machine-made Cuban, Romeo y Julieta Sport Largos. Enjoy!

My BOTL, you know how it is, the seductive siren song of the Cuban cigar. How many times have you had friends over and there is that one guy… that guy who doesn’t smoke much but “just has to try a Cuban”, the guy who wears you out till relenting you part with one of your favorite sticks only to see him smoke only half of it… a travesty… that is the journey that led me to the Romeo y Julieta Sport Largos at as low as $60 for a box of twenty five; I thought, what the heck, maybe this is how I can smoke a Cuban cigar everyday.

The Partagas D4 comes with a simple label and a wrapper full of veins. The wrapper is a light tan color with some noticeable bloom and plume. And the construction is perfect. It’s a pretty good looking cigar and I like the “non traditional” label it comes with.

Smelling the wrapper is amazing and it was one of the highlights of this cigar. There’s a strong sweet tobacco aroma with a little cedar smell behind it. It was strong and in your face and I just sat there awhile smelling the wrapper because it was that good. It’s not too often that you can just sit there and enjoy the aroma of only the wrapper.

I am generally a fan of H. Upmann cigars, but it took me a little while to get around to trying this one. This sample is from recent production.

Partagas Salomones is a cigar that you don't see very often in your shop. Online or offline, they are only available at several retailers for a simple reason - they were made specifically for La Casa del Habanos outlets. If you are interested in the history of this cigar, you might want to read this article - this is pretty fascinating. Thanks to a good friend of mine, I was able to put my hand on a sample so, without further ado, here is my opinion on this smoke.

We've got a guest cigar review from Jdawg today. Enjoy!

The Vegas Robaina Petit Robaina is a regional edition for Canada released in 2009. I have become more fascinated with regionals as of late. This particular cigar with its stubby size and stout ring gauge appealed to me when I first saw it. I have smoked a couple other Canadian regionals recently and found them not to my tastes, so I was hoping for something more appealing here.

I purchased a dress box of these when they were only 1 year old, and now I'm down to my last 2 cigars. I really didn't care for these much when they were young; I found them to have a floral and citrus taste that was too abundant. I was hoping that these would improve with age, but I wasn't patient enough to keep much of the box around this long. I ended up giving a few out to friends and trading some until now.

After getting a couple of reminders from readers, I guess it's about time to start reviewing the new 2010 Cuban limited editions. What have we got here? A Montecristo Grand Edmundo (5.9 x 52), a Partagas Serie D Especial (5.6 x 50) and a Trinidad Short Robusto T (4 x 50). Notice the ring gauges... The Monte sounds plain boring, Partagas is not really a favorite brand of mine, so the choice of the first cigar to test was fairly quick - Trinidad Robusto T was my favorite cigar in 2009 and I couldn't help thinking that there would be other similarities between these two besides the name.

One of these cigars was initially sent to me by a generous BOTL as a result of a forum contest I had won. Coming with a specific request to review the smoke, I happily agreed to do so after it received some rest. Long story short, the flavor of the smoke was fantastic but it was unfortunately plugged to the point that, less than halfway in, it had to be abandoned or face the inescapable likelihood that my head would implode had I tried to continue. After informing the contest holder of the unfortunate occurrence he indicated that it was generally known about their construction flaws and despite my protests, he would send another. After receiving the second cigar and putting it down for several months to rest at 65% Rh I decided to fashion a follow-up attempt at the Ramon Allones 8-9-8.
