Hoyo de Monterrey Petit Robusto has become one of my go-to cigars lately. It totally fits my current needs - a short smoke with a reliable construction and enough punch to be suitable as an after-dinner cigar. For this reason, the 4-inches long Cuban puro made it to my top Cuban cigars of 2011 list.

The Hoyo de Monterrey Short Hoyo Corona is a pre-1960 release and it was discontinued in 2006. I really enjoy the Hoyo des Dieux and Double Corona vitolas but to me Hoyo de Monterrey is a marca I am still discovering. I love trying new cigars and this was the perfect one to do so. It was much shorter than anything I had ever tried in their portfolio. Hopefully it will match up to its bigger brothers.

Much like Smoke Inn last year, W. Curtis Draper Tobacconist is commissioning several manufacturers to produce cigars for this year, their 125th Anniversary. Pete Johnson, of Havana Cellars/Tatuaje fame, was once again called upon to remake a legendary stick,… the Cabaiguan WCD 120. This same cigar blend and vitola was made 5 years ago for their Draper’s 120th Anniversary. Those I know of that bought the old 120’s say they have aged like fine wine over the last 5 years, so here’s hoping that this release will be nothing different. So how does the new WCD 120 perform? Read below,…

Punch is one of the few marcas I would buy a box without having previously tried the vitola. I just love their flavour profile and with a few years on them, Punch’s are great. This, again, is a pre-1960 release and it was discontinued in 2009. My local B&M received a 2007 cab of those so I had to try it. I brought it back home to let it sit in the humidor for a while but it kept looking at me every time I lifted the lid.

A cigar that made most people’s Top 25 of 2011 list, the Domus Magnus just missed the mark on my own. The critics were gasped when the Casa Magna topped the list at CA back in 2008. I really thought the Casa Magna Colorado from 2008 was a truly polished cigar, but nowhere near the top of the tobacco heap. Then Quesada and Casa Magna came out with the Domus Magnus this last year proving the hype behind Casa Magna was not a fluke, and with their best efforts, put out the best Casa Magna ever (in my honest opinion).

Having found an article about an indoors smoking lounge not far from where I live, I decided to check out the place last Saturday. Among the cigars I brought with me was this great looking Tabacos El Triunfador by Tatuaje that I managed to put my hands on thanks to a great BOTL Timo from Finland that I met on r/cigars. If you remember, the original El Triunfador was only available in one size, was extremely hard to find and was a great smoke. The new line is significantly different: several vitolas are available, the cigars seem to be much easier to get and the flavors are supposed to be more "polished".

The Partagas Panatela is a pre-1960 release and has been discontinued since 2002. Partagas is a brand I love. When I saw this, collecting dust at the B&M, I figured it was worth a mere 6$ for a 10+ years old machine-made cigar from this famous marca.
