Cohiba Mini  Colleccion No. 3  Limited Edition - Tin of 10
Date Added: Friday 28 November, 2014
I got home tonight after a day of shopping in the West End. I wanted to relax with a short smoke before getting on with some household commitments. After a bitter smoke on a very common supermarket brand (Scandinavian) I did question my relatively new cigar habit before getting on with the afternoons work. I have had a few sneaky glasses of beer this evening and I broke open the box of Collection 3's that recently arrived in the post from C-Gars. Incredible experience. I am too new to the Cuban experience and I would rather not attempt to articulate something so new to my palate but I will say that these little puppies where a tastey experience that left me with a happy satisfied warmth. I have recently taken a chance in ordering 3 BHK 52's from C-Gars - I am new to this game after all. They are the first edition to my new virgin humidor and I plan to smoke 1 for each year that I get closer to my professional qualifications. As I hoped, a regular box of Collections 3's are going to remind me of what I have to work towards in my little BHK colletion but will also help

Quorum Short Robusto Cigar - 1 Single
Date Added: Friday 28 November, 2014
Ring size: probably the maximum for me Smoke: nice amount Flavour: nice and smooth....not nutty or peppery. Draw: Easy. Band: Just fell off with the first draw....little disappointing as I like to leave it on until the end. Time: approx. 40 minutes for me....I'm a slow smoker I think. Ash: 1 inch before it came off with a slight knock Nicotine hit: approx. 1.5 inch from end but was slight. General: nice little cigar....well worth paying the extra 1 for the proper size. Happy to buy again.

Inka Secret Blend - Rojo Red - Robusto Cigar - 1 Single
Date Added: Friday 28 November, 2014
Good construction, fairly easy draw. Rustic wrapper, but fairly handsome stick. Some unfamiliar notes in the flavour profile but nothing objectionable. Great looking ash, only needed minor correction toward end. Enough depth of flavour to keep me interested - good for the price. An interesting enough smoke at a decent price - for 7 I'd usually rather smoke a Perla size Habano - Monte 5 or similar. But I can imagine times this would fit the bill - something to puff on while having a round of pitch and putt - something to puff on of an afternoon down the pub etcetera.

Chinchalero Picadillos Cigar - 1 Single
Date Added: Friday 28 November, 2014
Bought a couple of singles to sample - won't be buying again. Most notable characteristic was the overpoweringly soapy-tasking wrapper. The smoke shared a similar soapy character, but the taste of the cap on my tongue was so nauseating I left this to die after smoking less than half an inch - not for me at all.

Chinchalero Reserva Robusto Cigar - 1 Single
Date Added: Thursday 27 November, 2014
A reasonable cigar but not overly impressed. Burn and build qualty is good. Flavour mild and subtle. Very light Cafe Creme flavour in the first two thirds, taking a while to strengthen but toasted malt/leather flavour emerging after halfway. I have smoked the Chinchalero Picadilos in the past which represent excellent value for money as a mid week smoke, however I could not tell much of a difference in taste despite it being twice the price. Its a touch longer but not a better cigar, so the price tag lets it down in my opinion. Spend a bit more and buy a Cuban or a bit less for value for money. Id have paid a fiver for this happily but at 7 its overpriced.

Arturo Fuente Exquisito Cigar - 1 Single
Date Added: Thursday 27 November, 2014
I bought this cigar as I am rapidly approaching 40 and wanted to smoke a proper hand rolled cigar, I opened the wrapper and immediately the cigar smelt better than any other I have had. I toasted the cigar to light it and took a few tentative draws, the taste was spicy and sweet, a really nice smooth draw and I only had to re-light once. It has been a long time since I have smoked, but I have now ordered a starter pack of tubed Cubans and a pack of Monte Christo Puritos. I would buy this cigar again, and again.
