San Cristobal Oficios Cigar - 1 Single
Date Added: Thursday 30 October, 2014
I was a little dissappointed with this cigar, as the one I smoked took a while to get going. There was little initial flavour with a hard draw, and only really started to develop after half of it had been smoked. The second half was as expected, with rich flavour although the experience was tarnished by the poor start. I will try another again, as I am hoping this was a one-off dud, and my previous smokes from San Cristobal have been great.

Chinchalero Picadillos Cigar - 1 Single
Date Added: Tuesday 28 October, 2014
Tried one of these last week, I was very impressed, better than many other cigars I have tried costing far more. Draw was excellent, pleasant but not overpowering flavour. The burn was quite uneven towards the end, however this did not spoil my enjoyment of this very nice smoke. Lasted around 40 minutes, the ash was distinctly white and held on for the first third of the cigar. In summary excellent value for money I have ordered more already.

NEW C.Gars Ltd Dutch Blend Spriet (Cigarillos) - 1 Single
Date Added: Sunday 26 October, 2014
Coming from a complete novice to the world of cigars, in fact, smoking as a whole, i wasn't too impressed with both construction and taste. I bought two. The first one was a bit too harsh for my taste, needed constant attention and the draw was a bit tough. Smoke didn't amount to much at all and had to throw it midway when it died for the 6th time as i wasn't keen on the attention anymore. Construction wise, bits of the wrapper started to crack from the top until i had to peel the offending part it gently. Still have another one of those, though it's peeling off from the bottom, a bit hesitant to light it up following the first one.

NEW C.Gars Ltd Dutch Blend Wilde Senoritas  1 Single
Date Added: Sunday 26 October, 2014
I think i just found something suitable for my extremely novice taste. Took this baby out on a ride to the pub the other day, burn was consistent (never needed a relight), and construction was quite good. It lasted a good part of 15-20 minutes. The smoke, however, wasn't as abundant but it smelled like a proper cigar would. Now, the most important part, the taste: It was bitter for the first third, i must admit, but i persevered with the help of a pint of amber ale. Then, the bitterness disappeared to give way to a mellow taste, perhaps a hint of dark caramel though it could have been my mind just playing up. Most importantly, this baby didn't make my saliva run all over the place :) Will get a few on my next order!

Quai d'Orsay Coronas Cigar - 1 Single
Date Added: Sunday 26 October, 2014
A good quick smoke with subtle flavours. As others have mentioned, it had an 'airy' draw, which I was not adverse to, and produced billowing clouds of sweet smoke. If some of the stronger cigars available were likened to a main course, this would make an ideal starter.

H. Upmann Connoisseur No. 1 Cigar - 1 Single
Date Added: Thursday 23 October, 2014
Yet another great smoke from H.Upmann, I have had a few now and they have been consistent to say the least. This was probably my favourite, with losts of smoke and a dramaticly tasty finish. A great excuse to sit outside on a mild autumn evening and listen to the owls hunting.
