My Father El Centurion H2KCT Toro - IPCPR 2015 Quick Reviews

Size: Toro - 6 x 52 - Box Pressed
Wrapper: Habano 2000 Connecticut
Binder: Nicaragua
Filler: Nicaragua
Strength: Medium

El Centurion H.2K.CT by My Father Cigars

The El Centurion has always been a favorite cigar of mine throughout its many blend changes at My Father Cigars. It has always remained a solid, interesting smoke. The original was an absolute masterclass in flavor and balance; the follow up, was more strength, but still showcased some great classic peppery, earthy and sweet Pepin magic.

The latest El Centurion features a completely new wrapper tobacco, never before produced or used, a Habano 2000 grown in the Connecticut River Valley. It's binder and fillers are all Nicaraguan, and overall I would say its Medium in strength.

The H2KCT starts off as most My Father Cigars, with a nice nostril full of red and black peppery spice, but does not over power the medium bodied salty sweetness and subtle nuances. The sample I smoked was directly from the IPCPR, and suffice it to say could have probably used some time to settle and age a bit. But with that said, it still was extremely enjoyable, BALANCE is the keyword here.. The construction was some of the best I've experienced in a while. A slow, controllable burn and draw was perfect for taking my time to really taste the different flavors this cigar showcases.

The Garcia's might have another winner here, those of you lucky enough to smoke the original El Centurion know how good that cigar was, and this is a return in that direction. More emphasis on flavor over body, and an enjoyable balance that will keep you coming back. Although my sample was pre-release, I can say without any hesitation that this cigar has some serious potential with a bit of aging.

El Centurion H.2K.CT by My Father Cigars

The My Father El Centurion H.2K.CT will be available in two box-pressed sizes. Keep you're eyes peeled, we will let you know as soon as we have them in stock!

Blind Man's Bluff features a Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, a Criollo binder from Honduras, and fillers composed of San Vicente viso from the Dominican Republic and Criollo ligero and what Caldwell calls Generoso ligero sol from Honduras.

Rocky Patel 20th Anniversary

Rocky Patel 20th Anniversary

With 20 years in the cigar industry Rocky Patel is commemorating his accomplishments with the 20th Anniversary by Rocky Patel. This cigar has a beautiful sun grown Honduran wrapper. The filler in this celebratory cigar is a Honduran Jamastran tobacco as well as binders from Esteli and Jalapa Nicaragua. Available in six sizes, these box-pressed beauties are a hit for any Rocky Patel fan.


Rocky Patel Tabaquero by Hamlet Paredes

Rocky Patel Tabaquero by Hamlet Paredes

Rocky Patel has an ace up his sleeve. That ace is one of Cuba's most sought after rollers and blenders, Hamlet Jaime Paredes. This cigar pays no homage to Shakespeare, but to another great virtuoso.  Blending a great cigar is an art form that many do not possess. Hamlet has rolled at many of the famous cigar factories in Cuba before Rocky Patel gave him the chance and means to burst into the American market. This cigar is very multi-national, meaning the complexity will be outstanding. The wrapper used is dark and oily San Andres maduro. The binders both come from premium tobacco plants in Brazil and Mexico. The filler used is a flavorful Nicaraguan Tobacco. This cigar is available in 5 sizes to meet the needs of all smokers.


La Mission du L'Atelier

La Mission du L'Atelier

La Mission du L'Atelier pays homage to the famed winery in France, Chateau La Mission Haut-Brion. This winery is the pinnacle of greatness, so why wouldn't L'Atelier try to duplicate their prominence. This winery has earned seven 100 point vintages. This constitutes the wine as extraordinary. Enough about wine though. This cigar uses L'Atelier's go to tobacco, Sancti Spiritus. The wrapper is a Mexican San Andres. The binder and filler are Nicaraguan Sancti Spiritus. La Mission du L'Atelier is available in several sizes. Each size has a corresponding year, each year is when Chateau La Mission Haut-Brion was given a 100pt scoring. La Mission du L'Atelier is a box-pressed offering with a pigtail cap. You be the judge if this cigar lives up to the moniker.


D'Crossier Selection 512

D'Crossier Selection 512

Owned and operated by Isaias Santana Diaz, Pure Aroma Cigars introduces D'Crossier's Flor de D'Crossier Selection No. 512. This offering from D'Crossier is a little easier on the wallet than its Costa Rican counterpoint. Diaz originally is from Havana, Cuba but has lived in the United States since 1995. He named his company's main brand D'Crossier as a tribute to his great grandfather Francisco Crossier. The Flor de D'Crossier Selection No. 512 features tobaccos from three countries. The wrapper is an Ecuadorian Habano. The Binder is a Costa Rican Sumatra. The Filler is both Dominican and Costa Rican. Flor de D'Crossier Selection No. 512 is available in six vitolas and fifteen count tins.


Espinosa Habano 2015

New Espinosa Habano

Re-branded and re-blended are all you need to know for the Espinosa Habano. Erik Espinosa felt that the Habano line of cigars he has produced for the last few years was not where it should be. Still hand rolled in La Zona Factory in Estelli Nicaragua this cigar has more flavor then its predecessor. Wrapped in a creamy yet spicy Nicaraguan Habano wrapper this cigar is an easy medium bodied smoke. This cigar is available in three sizes. The No. 4: 5 1/2 x 50, The No. 5: 6 x 52, and The No. 8: 6 1/8 x 58, all available in twenty count boxes.


Espinosa Especial

Espinosa Especial

Erik Espinosa is not new when it comes to Mexican Tobacco. The Espinosa Especial blend highlights this Mexican Capa Negra wrapped cigar. This dark, earthy, and oily wrapper makes this release something special. With binders and fillers from four growing regions in Nicaragua (Condega, Esteli, Jalapa, and Ometepe) this cigar will be full flavored and full bodied. This exceptional release from Erik Espinosa is one of the main highlights from La Zona during the IPCPR 2015 Trade Show. Available in 10 count boxes and three vitolas, these cigars are going to be packed with flavor and strength.


Murcielago

Murcielago (New)

The bat is back! Erik Espinosa re-launches Murcielago. Back in 2009 Espinosa released one of his most sought after blends, Murcielago. This cigar was awesome. Thing is, it was made in the My Father Factory. After Espinosa and Eddie Ortega parted ways years back the blend was lost. It has taken years to clone his once masterpiece by reverse engineering the original cigar. The new Murcielago has been modernized and the packaging and band have the iconic Lamborghini lines. The wrapper used on this revamped line is a Mexican Capa Negra Tobacco. The binder and filler are undisclosed but they are Nicaraguan. Erik Espinosa claims that this new release of the Murcielago is better then the old. You can be the judge and decide by purchasing one or all three of the new vitolas.


La Palina Family Series Miami

La Palina Family Series Miami

Bill Paley's first cigar he has ever produced has gotten a total makeover. He has taken the La Palina Family Series to the renowned El Titan de Bronze factory in Miami Florida. The La Palina Family Series Miami is claimed to be his "finest tasting" super premium cigar to date. With all cigars tobaccos change from year to year. Bill Paley did not want this amazing cigar to be forgotten. He has re-blended this cigar with the help of well know blender Willy Herrera and Aixa Vazquez, ETBs master blender. Three vitolas will be available The Pasha 7 x 50 brushed foot churchill, Babe a 5 ¼ x 50 robusto and Alison a 6 x 52 torpedo. The wrapper used on this cigar is an Ecuadorian Corojo 98. The binder is an Ecuadorian Habano and the filler is Nicaraguan tobaccos from Jalapa and Esteli.


Caldwell Junior Varsity

Caldwell Gibraltar Extra, Murcias Especial, Sevillana Reserva - New Packaging and Blends

Caldwell Cigar Co. has had the Gibraltar, Murcias, and Sevillana lines in the past. After discontinuing the "Junior Varsity" line it is time for a rebirthing. The Iberian Express has been born. These cigars are no longer in the backseat. This now premium line boasts some of the best tobaccos that could be found. The Gibraltar Extra has a wrapper from Ecuador, a Dominican binder, and a filler blend of Dominican, Nicaraguan, and U.S. tobaccos. The Murcias Especial features a Brazilian wrapper, a Dominican binder, and Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers. The Sevillana Reserva will feature an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, a Dominican binder, and a combination of Nicaragua and Dominican filler.


El Gueguense by Foundation Cigar Co.

El Gueguense by Foundation Cigar Co.

Nicholas Melillo, of Foundation Cigar Company, has been in the cigar industry for some time. His inaugural release is the El Gueguense, meaning "the wise man". This cigar possesses some serious flavor and body. We'll just say "full" for both aspects. The blend incorporates Criollo 98 and Corojo 99 tobaccos from Jalapa and Esteli. It features leaves from third, fourth, sixth, and medio tiempo primings. Presented in twenty-five count boxes this cigar is something else. Available in five vitolas this brand has everything going for it. Try one of these amazing smokes.


La Imperiosa by Crowned Heads

La Imperiosa by Crowned Heads

In 2014 there was a cigar known as Las Calaveras LE 2014. It was highly sought after and production was limited. Jon Huber knew he had something special. La Imperiosa by Crowned Heads is that same blend. La Imperiosa means the imperative. It was an old Cuban brand from the 1900's. Unlike the fabled Las Calaveras LE 2014 this permanent line has new sizing, Corona Gorda 5 3/4 x 46, Magicos 4 1/2 x 52, Double Robusto 6 3/8 x 50, and Dukes 5 1/2 x 54. This cigar has an Ecuadorian habano oscuro wrapper covering binder and filler tobaccos from Nicaragua. The demand was set and now everyone can rejoice. The La Imperiosa by Crowned Heads is here to stay.


Don Reynaldo by Warped

Don Reynaldo by Warped

Don Reynaldo is a tribute marca to Kyle Gellis' father, who introduced him to cigars as a young kid. Growing up his father taught him about cigars and the lifestyle that accompanied them. From construction issues, flavor profiles, proper way to cut and light, to the art itself, Kyle's passion would not have been ignited if it weren't for him. Gellis wanted to thank and honor him for all the support he has given him and blend a cigar that combined the flavor profiles he loved.Rolled down at El Titan de Bronze in Little Havana, Miami by true category 9 master rollers from Cuba, this special vitola installment will be offered in an extremely limited release of 100 boxes of (10), for a total of 1,000 cigars.


Futuro by Warped

Futuro by Warped

Warped and Casa Fernandez are proud to announce a collaboration for 2015, Futuro. Futuro started as an idea at the 2014 IPCPR in Las Vegas between Kyle Gellis of Warped and Max Fernandez, son of Eduardo Fernandez of AGANORSA. The idea behind Futuro was simple but overly complicated, create a flavor profile and experience like nothing Warped nor Casa Fernandez has done previously. Utilizing AGANORSA's material from their "vault", a section of their storage facility under lock and key and home to their most prized material, life was given to this AGANORSA puro. Futuro will be offered in 2 vitolas in SLB's of 20. The selected sizes and shapes were individually chosen by Kyle and Max to reflect their own preferences while blending Futuro.

Nat Sherman Epoca Perfectos Review
By GC
7/29/2014 5:05:00 PM  

Cigar Review:

The Nat Sherman Epoca is Available Now - Click Here to Purchase

Nat Sherman Epoca Perfecto (5 3/4 x 52)

Nat Sherman has resurrected one of their oldest brands, actually the first they offered on the premium market, called the Epoca, to commemorate their long standing history in the cigar industry. The Epoca uses the same packaging artwork from the original release, which was a "clear" Havana, meaning it contained Cuban tobacco, but was sold in the States prior to the embargo. Released at IPCPR 2014, the Nat Sherman Epoca was produced by the Quesada's in the Dominican Republic. It uses a golden brown Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper with Nicaraguan and Dominican fillers.

Nat Sherman Epoca Perfectos

Appearance:

The Nat Sherman Epoca, especially the Perfecto has a very retro look to it. The packaging is an absolute throwback and does what the brand sets out to do, harken back to the clear Havana pre-embargo blend that it was. A super smooth, golden brown Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper shines in the light, seamlessly encasing the cigar. Overall a very appealing looking cigar.

Burn / Draw / Construction:

The burn and draw on the Nat Sherman Epoca was nothing short of perfection. Once again, the cigar mimics a Cuban with a white, flakey ash, but unlike the forbidden fruit, this cigars burn line was like a laser. The draw had just the right amount of resistance, offering the ability to "sip" or pull big plumes of smoke. The construction was good also, firm but not too much so.

Nat Sherman Epoca Perfectos

Flavor:

Pre-light draw consists of an sweet tobacco and hay like flavor. The Epoca starts off fairly mild and creamy with a light, nutty sweetness and an enjoyable aroma that's similar to some Cuban cigars. Also similar to some Havana's is the medium body, yet medium to full amount of flavor that the cigar exudes. As the Epoca burns past the halfway point, the sweet creaminess remains in the forefront with a nice amount of spice through the nose with a retrohale. The final third approached a hair over medium in body and introduced some nice cocoa flavor, along with more natural nutty and leather notes. The aroma continues to be fantastic, it smells of vanilla and some coconut. A very smooth and enjoyable mix of flavors. Definitely complex enough to keep you guessing, but completely enjoyable and approachable to someone who isn't super experienced.

Nat Sherman Epoca Perfectos


Overall Thoughts:

I thought the Nat Sherman Epoca was a fantastic cigar. If the companies aim was to manufacture a cigar with retro styling and milder "Cubanesque" flavor and body then they nailed it. I'm very interested to try some of the other sizes, particularly the smaller ring gauges, which may produce a little more strength. The Quesada's have been blending excellent medium body cigars for many years and recently with brands like the Espana and the Jalapa, they've shown they can create a milder cigar that's packed with nuance and interesting flavor. I usually reach for a milder cigar early on in the day, this Epoca would be a perfect cigar to enjoy with coffee in the morning. For fans of Nat Sherman cigars, or the Quesada Family's blending, this cigar is a must try. Also if you're looking for a mild to medium cigar with true characteristics of a Cuban, add this one to your short list.

Casa Fernandez Miami 35th Aniversario Bohème No. 35 Cigar Review
By J. Wood
12/12/2013 2:28:00 PM  

Casa Fernández Miami 35th Aniversario (Bohème No. 35)

Wrapper: Nicaragua

Binder: Nicaragua

Filler: Nicaragua

Size: 6 x 54, Toro

Factory: Casa Fernández Miami



In 2002, Casa Fernández, owned by Eduardo Fernandez, purchased Tropical Tobacco, owned by Pedro Martin, which was founded in 1978. Doing the math, you’ll realize that was 35 years ago. As is quite common in the cigar industry, Casa Fernández decided to celebrate its “coral” anniversary with a limited edition cigar, the Casa Fernánez Miami 35th Aniversario, also known as the Bohème No. 35.


To make this cigar, Casa Fernández, which also operates a tobacco growing operation under the name Aganorsa Tobacco, dug into its stores of aged tobaccos and pulled out a blend of 5-6 year old Nicaraguan tobaccos. Casa Fernández has operated on its “Seeds to Ash” motto for some time now, which has helped the company maintain vertical integration in its cigar production. While there are many good cigars out there which are blended and rolled by a company separate than the tobacco grower, it never hurts to have oversight over all points of the cigar’s manufacturing. Accordingly, it would have no doubt been difficult for a cigar company celebrating its 35th anniversary to have access to 5-6 year aged tobaccos if they didn't grow, age and store those tobaccos themselves.




Casa Fernández decided on a single size for the release, a box-pressed 6 x 54 Toro, which have been packed in 10-count boxes. Each box is signed by Eduardo Fernandez and Paul Palmer, General Manager of Casa Fernández. These cigars are rolled at Casa Fernández’s Miami factory.



Appearance:


The Casa Fernandez 35th Aniversario’s wrapper is a consistent tanned leather color, which has a silky texture. The cigar’s box pressing isn’t sharp, as there are still rounded edges. There is just a slight bit of oil on the wrapper. The cigar feels firm when squeezed and carries an evenly placed cap.


Tasting:


The cigar provided very mild smells with no trace of ammonia or youth. There were aromas of earth and sweet cocoa with fruit rind coming from the foot. The cold draw was one of the most unique I’ve ever tasted. There was what I can only describe as a watermelon candy taste which was accompanied by some earth and just the hint of cayenne spice.




1st Third:


The cigar started fairly mild with some cayenne spice upfront and a very easy draw despite the cigars firmness. There was some earth upfront too with some light nuttiness. Once the cigar got going, saltiness developed on top of some dried fruit, a pleasant toasted aftertaste and a cinnamon spice that stuck around.


2nd Third:


The strength builds some in the middle of the cigar moving above medium-bodied. The spice was still around, but it was a different spice than what is normally found in Nicaraguan cigars. There was no bite to the spice. The cigar picked up plenty of sweetness, which wasn’t like watermelon candy, but was somewhat candied neverthless. The cigar had copious smoke production.


Final Third:


Towards the end of the middle and the beginning of the final third of the 35th Aniversario, the cigar started to evolve a bit, picking up flavors of chocolate, coffee and sweet cedar and dumping a bit of the mild spice. These flavors combined with the previous flavors to produce a toffee note. There was a pleasant tartness on the tip of the tongue as well with a toasted note. At the end of the cigar, which wasn't at all harsh, there were hints of mint and tea and a really easy finish. The cigar finished with a latte note lingering on the palate.




Overall:


There is a certain profile we’ve come to expect from Nicaraguan puros, and this cigar was quite different from that profile. For instance, there wasn’t an overload of leather, earth and spice. Instead the cigar runs through a range of interesting flavors, producing one of the more unique cigars I’ve tasted in a while. It might be redundant to point out that this is probably due to the age of the tobaccos used throughout the blend. Many of the Nicaraguan cigars being produced today carry a much stronger and younger profile that the market seems to be asking for. This cigar, even with only several months since its rolling, is already showing great aged characteristics and a refinement that is tough to find on "new" cigars. With a medium-bodied strength, this cigar stands apart from much of the competition.


Estimated smoking time: 1 and 1/2 hours

Room101 Serie HN Cigar Review
By J. Wood
11/7/2013 3:54:00 PM  

Room101 Serie HN 615 Cigar Review

Wrapper: Honduran Criollo ‘98

Binder:Brazilian Mata Fina, Honduran Criollo ‘98

Filler: Dominican Navarette

Size: 615 (7 x 48)



The Room 101 HN, unveiled at the 2012 IPCPR Trade Show in Las Vegas, is another highly-anticipated addition to the Room101 portfolio from Matt Booth, founder of the popular boutique brand. This cigar was built around Honduran Criollo, per Oettinger Davidoff Group:


Following the success of our most recent core offering, the Room101 San Andres, we’ve decided to take yet another unique journey with this new blend. Honduran Criollo is widely-known for its signature taste; rich, rugged and filled with intense spice. By itself, Criollo can be slightly one dimensional. However, when expertly combined with tobaccos such as Mata Fina from Brazil and a creamy Dominican Navarette, the richness and spice of Criollo comes to life in an unimaginable way. The result is a multi-dimensional and full-flavored, medium-intensity cigar with a level of balance unmatched by most.




The “HN” comes from the use of both the Honduran Criollo, the “H,” and Dominican Navarette, the “N.”

The Room101 Serie HN is being release in five vitolas: 213 (5 1/2 x 44), 305 (5 x 50), 615 (7 x 48), 808 (6 x 60) and Papi Chulo (4 x 42). Each size comes in a 25-count box, except the Papi Chulo, which comes in a 50-count box. This is a limited production smoke. Only 20,000 of each vitola were produced. I smoked the 615 for this review.



Appearance:


This long cigar has an evenly colored wrapper with very minial veins and a fine grain. The cigar is finished with a triple cap, has a leathery look and is velvety to the touch. The cigar feels well-filled when squeezed with no soft spots.


Tasting:


The cigar has smells of barnyard, cedar, fruit rind and leather. The cold draw is open and provides a mixture of raisins, chocolate and coffee with some earth.




1st Third:


The Serie HN started with a load of pepper spice on the light and delivered plenty of smoke. There were flavors of red pepper, earth and leather. Some mild fruitiness complimented the spice nicely. The first third was rounded out nicely with plenty of woodiness.


2nd Third:


During the middle of the cigar, the spice and earth stuck around, though the spice wasn’t overwhelming. Some sweetness began to develop, and the fruitiness turned into a distinct orange peel. The leather was a predominant note towards the final third with some cinnamon in the background.
