First of all, I am really sorry for the lack of my reviews lately. I’ve been through some important changes in my life (new job, new home, new city…) which barely allowed enough time to take care of the website. I would like to thank all the reviewers for bringing you fresh content every week. During the last months I’ve been mostly smoking cigars for pleasure, relaxing with a glass of cognac after a long day. I didn’t feel like reviewing a Petit Edmundo again, or a Party Short. Last week, however, I did some on- and off-line shopping and also received a little package from Cayman islands (more on that in one of the next reviews), so I’ve got some interesting experiences to share with you.

We’ll start with a Tatuaje J21 Reserva. This is the very first Tatuaje that I tried (can you believe that?) and I was really curious to see whether it would live up to its reputation (you can check Joe’s review for example).

Below is the third dual review in our series of 6.

Jason: Graycliff is a cigar company that produces ultra-premium cigars out of Nassau, Bahamas. I am not a frequent smoker of Graycliff cigars by any means, due to their price. I have had the red label and blue label previously, but it has been a couple of years, so I wasn't sure what to expect in smoking this Chateau Gran Cru.

Joe K: After an Irish Lamb Stew that my wife and I made when visiting my parents, I decided to break out a Graycliff Chateau Gran Cru PG that I received from Three Cigar Dogs Company. To this point my only experience with Graycliff was with their Double Espresso, which I had enjoyed at the time. Outside of that, I had not read or heard much about them either. Some brief research into the brand showed that the Graycliff runs a resort, restaurant, cigar company combination out of Nassau in the Bahamas. As my first attempt with this smoke did not prove positive and general reviews seemed to contradict this, I set out to give it another chance to determine if the issues were across both cigars or just isolated to the first.

Up for review this time is the much acclaimed Camacho Triple Maduro. In typical American style if something is good, more of it must be better. So this cigar became the first to sport all Honduran Maduro tobacco. I smoked the 11/18 which tapers at the head and foot of the cigar.

After a delicious late lunch of grilled chicken kabobs and a couple of outstanding craft brews, my loving wife and I decided to finish out our day with a couple of cigars. Her choice for the early evening, was an Ashton VSG Enchantment, while I decided on a slightly longer venture with an Ashton ESG 20 year salute.

Hello all. The Tollaficionados are back to review one of the most consistently excellent brands on the market. Let’s see if this member of its elite family holds true to its siblings standards. Ladies & Gentlemen, The Montecristo 75th Aniversario.

Our good friends at Altadis, USA recently released these celebratory sticks, and Nick, Sr. and I were able to get our hands on a few. Not an easy get, I assure you! These babies have been anticipated and talked about for some time now, and to obtain them, especially this early takes connections or a great deal of luck. The 75th is of limited release, so put your backorder in now so that you can sample a few yourselves. Now on to the review…

I would like to thank FinestCubanCigars.com for providing these cigars for review. For over 10 years they ship Cuban cigars from Hong Kong at competitive prices.

This is the third review in my series of Asia Pacific RE smokes and, let me be honest from the very beginning, Por Larranaga Belicosos Extra is my favorite one. Although both the strong and very typical Bolivar Short and the slightly unbalanced Por Larranaga Robusto both scored good marks, this little belicoso outranks them in terms of flavors. Let's see how.

My wife and I had such a busy weekend planned that it seemed naught but wishful thinking that I would be able to get a smoke in for this week’s review. On Saturday, between sleeping in and making a trek to the animal circus known as the mall, a perfect window popped open and of course, I jumped at the opportunity to fire one up. Pulling together my arsenal and securing a post on the front porch I was ready to settle in with a DVD of The Sopranos and a Diamond Crown Maximus No. 5 Robusto.

Drew Estate has been making quite the splash as of late on the cigar world and especially in the online cigar community and it is not for a type of cigar you would typically associate with the brand. Recently they have had two very successful and very well received lines of cigars and they are not flavored or infused in any way. They are traditional cigars and they are sold under the name Liga Privada. First came the No. 9 and most recently the T52 which a lot of cigar smokers are raving about. Not that long ago I was able to smoke and review a pre-production version of the T52. Specifically “blend #3″ which was supposedly selected as the final blend for what would become the production version of the T52. Now I have heard second and third hand, that Drew Estate actually tweaked that final blend a bit at the last minute using a hybrid of the pre-production blends #3 and #4. I have no idea how accurate that is if at all but I heard it said often enough that I thought it worth mentioning.
