While I was in Geneva this spring, I thought I’d take advantage of this special opportunity to try the Por Larranaga Valiosos Regional Edition Switzerland. The cigar cost me $22.00. I thought that it would be well worth it to try this cigar out for everyone who can’t take advantage of this release. The Valiosos was produced as a limited edition regional cigar; only 2400 boxes were distributed for sale in Switzerland.

I have tried the smaller Secretos version of the Maduro 5 previously, but not its big brother, the Genios until now. Most of the reviews I've read on the Genios have been positive, so I was hoping to have the same luck, though I wasn't terribly impressed with Secretos. I enjoyed this with a nicely aged cabernet sauvignon, which paired pretty well.

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.

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.
