Montecristo No. 4 Reserva were released in 2007 in very limited quantities (only 5.000 boxes were made) in tribute to the best-selling Cuban cigar ever, Montecristo No. 4. I got mine courtesy of TopCubans.com and I was very eager to try it out. Needless to say, they have become very hard to find since 2007.

Cohiba is one of the most famous cigar brands in the world. Thanks to the United States trade embargo with Cuba and General Cigar’s appropriation of the trademark in the US market, it is also a brand name surrounded by a lot of confusion. There are a surprising number of people out there including some who consider themselves “cigar smokers” who fail to understand that the famous Cohiba, the Cuban version, in no way, shape or form is related to the Cohiba that is for sale in the US.

I received this cigar, along with two others, in a gift pack. TESA Cigar Company is a boutique cigar company operating out of Chicago, Illinois. I haven’t had any experience with their smokes and had only read about them online. According to their website, TESA cigars are blended by Chicago area resident Chris Kelly and crafted in the TESA Cigar factory in Esteli, Nicaragua. Additionally, 10% of all purchases are donated to housing repairs, education, clothing, and sustenance for the benefit of the residents of Esteli.

I was gifted three TESA cigars: this lancero, a Reserva Real torpedo and a Vintage Especial presidente. I smoked the torpedo upon receipt and was thoroughly impressed with its flavor profile. I decided to let the other two rest for a couple months before enjoying them. After some humi time, I decided to light up this little lancero.

This is a tubo version although it is not visible on the picture. I usually like Davidoffs even though they might be considered overpriced. On the milder side, they tend to provide a pleasant flavor and boast a reliable construction. This is what I was expecting from this tubed Special R.

Winston Churchill is a line of cigars produced by Davidoff in the Dominican Republic. It is supported by Sir Winston Churchill's grandson. 4 different vitolas are produced and each one's name is related to a certain important event in the life of the famous Prime Minister. Marrakesh is a 6x50 toro; it appears that Sir Winston loved this city for its sunny weather and the special inspiration it gave to him. I purchased my specimen in Paris and smoked it straight away in a café nearby.

More info about purchasing Padron 1964 cigars...

The Padrón 1964 Anniversary Series line was introduced in 1994 to commemorate the Padrón Cigar Company’s 30th anniversary. The line consists of ten sizes that are all available in sun-grown natural and maduro wrappers and all the sizes are box pressed. All tobacco used in these cigars is reportedly aged for four years. Due to the immense popularity of this line of cigars, it has become one of the most counterfeited non-Cuban cigars in the world. To help protect their brand and their customers Padrón introduced a few security measures to make counterfeiting more difficult. They added a specially designed double band featuring an individually numbered guarantee label. The back side of the labels is also printed.
