Tatuaje Havana VI is one of the main lines of the brand. It doesn’t get much attention compared to limited editions, but this cigar, produced in Nicaragua by Pepin Garcia on the My Father factory, also deserves a test drive.

I previously wrote a review of the Rocky Patel Private Cellar Toro. In that review I advised readers that I would be sampling the Robusto to see if the size made any difference to the overall experience. Often times, the same blends in different sizes offer unique and subtle flavor differences that make one size preferable over the other even though the same tobacco is used. What I found was what I expected ... the flavor in the Robusto was slightly different. That doesn’t necessarily mean it was better. This cigar, like all of the Private Cellar sizes was rolled at Patel’s Tavicusa factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. How different was this cigar, rolled with the same tobacco and at the same plant as the RP Private Cellar Toro?

Well it’s been awhile since my last post. Does that mean I’ve quit smoking cigars… NO WAY! Sometimes life just gets crazy and too busy, I hope you’ll understand. However, I’m back and have lots of great cigar reviews to post.

The Padrón 3000 Maduro. I have to be honest in saying that this is one of my favorite cigars. I always keep them stocked in my humidor and when I’m running low I just order another box. The Padrón 3000 Series, natural and maduro, are available in boxes of 26, box of 4, and single cigars. It is definitely not the most attractive cigar or the most complex by any means however for me it provides what a cigar should and is the most practical without burning a hole in the wallet. I personally enjoy this cigar at cookouts, barbeques and the occasional Par 3 golf course.

Liga Privada No. 9

Liga Privada No. 9 Robusto

Origin : NicaraguaLiga Privada
Format : Toro
Size : 6 x 52
Wrapper : Connecticut Broadleaf Ligero Oscuro
Filler : Honduran/Nicaraguan
Binder : Plantation-Grown Brazilian Mata Fina
Price : ~$12
More info about purchasing Liga Privada No. 9 cigars...

Manufactured by Drew Estate, the Liga Privada was actually blended to be the exclusive cigar for the company president. Then the company thought that it was good enough to sell as their premium blend and voila, the Liga Privada No. 9 (Private Blend) was born. Of course, being a fickle aficionado myself, I often take the back stories with a grain of salt. I often wonder if these niche ultra-limited cigars are made more to capitalize on the trend in limited cigars. My research told me that it was heralded the Hottest Cigar in America in the July 13, 2013 issue of Cigar Aficionado’s online newsletter, Cigar Insider. Funny thing is, when I purchased this cigar I had never heard of it, or read the article yet. I bought mine in June of 2013. What made me buy it was its stunning appearance and classy look.

Origin : NicaraguaCore Zero Cigars
Format : Toro
Size : 6 x 52
Wrapper : Sumatra
Filler : Nicaraguan & Honduran
Binder : Honduran
Price : $5 each

First of all, I would like to thank Bryan Butler from Core Zero Cigars for sending me a sampler.

Bryan and Nick were involved in a local metal band called Core Zero and decided that they needed to create their own cigars. After meeting Matt Booth of Room 101 and Jonathan Drew of Drew Estates, the idea took shape and CZ Cigars was launched. You can find more information about the company on their website.

At the moment, two blends are available : Indie and Metal. Indie is the milder one, wrapped in a Sumatra leaf from Indonesia. Metal is more powerful with a Habano Maduro wrapper from Nicaragua. The one being reviewed today is the Core Zero Indie.

Thanks to Bryan, we've got a 5-pack of these to give away to one lucky reader! In order to enter the draw, read the review and leave a comment at the end of the post. That's it! We'll announce the winner in one week.
