LA AURORA 107

Hello everyone, today I am reviewing the much talked about La Aurora 107 Lancero. I was gifted this cigar from a good friend who I consider to be a giant in the cigar blog world. Who is this person you ask? Of course it’s Barry from A Cigar Smoker. So with that said, I would like to say right up front “THANKS BARRY!” for the wonderful early Christmas gifts you sent me. I hope that I will be able to repay your kindness someday. So with the history behind us, let’s get to the review and see if the La Aurora passes the mighty Stew test.

J. FUEGO 777 COROJO

 

Hello everyone, today I am reviewing the J. Fuego 777 Corojo. I will say up front that I am not a big fan of J. Fuego cigars but will give it a fair review as I do with all the cigars I smoke.  So with that said, I’m ready to give you my verdict on if it passes the mighty “Stew” test or not.

 

CIGAR MAKE UP:

 

WRAPPER: Corojo

BINDER & FILLER: Nicaraguan Corojo / Nicaragua Corojo

Length/Ring: 5.5 x 54

Shape: Belicoso

Strength: Medium to Full

Price: It was gifted to me but I saw a box for $ 76.00 online.

My Observations: Basically this cigar is not much to look at. I state this because the wrapper is kind of “Blah” that doesn’t really have anything interesting to draw your attention to it. The color of the wrapper is medium brown that sports rather large veins.

On my finger touch inspection, I did find some soft spots and lots of imperfections. Over all I have to give it a “C” in the looks department.

Cigar Label: Very basic that sports a red band with gold writing across it.

Snip: Straight cut.

Pre-Draw: Tight with an earthy taste.

Flavors: The 1st third of this cigar consisted of spice, lots of earth, and pepper. The 2nd third continued with these flavors with no change. The last third again continued with these flavors and to tell you the truth it bored me to no end.

Draw: Tight

Burn line: Even.

Liked it: No!

Recommend it: No!

Hint: Skip this one

 

 

Over All

 

 

Until Next Time

JAIME GARCIA RESERVA ESPECIAL

Hello everyone, today I am bringing you the “Jamie Garcia Reserva Especial Belicoso”  for my review. Now, I smoked a couple of these back in June but never got around to posting a review of my findings and it suddenly became lost. So with that stated,  I stumble upon a rough draft of it today and decided to finish it. So when you see the nice green vegetation in the back ground please remember that I smoked this baby back in June. So with the history behind us, its time to get into this review.

CIGAR MAKE UP:

WRAPPER: Connecticut Broadleaf

BINDER & FILLER: Ecuador/ Nicaraguan

Length/Ring: 5.5 X 52

Shape: Belicoso

Strength:Medium to full

Price: I paid $ 7.55.

My Observations: This cigar has a wonderful dark chocolate leaf wrapper that has noticeable veins that blend perfectly with its makeup. On a closer inspection, as I spun the cigar through my digits, I found no imperfections and to tell you the truth I really wasn’t expecting anything less from the Master Rollers son. On my finger touch inspection, I found no soft spots.

Cigar Label: Very cool and very impressive due to the series of colors that decorate it. The colors consist of white, blue, red, and gold.

Snip: Straight cut.

Pre-Draw: Smooth with a touch of pepper.

Flavors: The 1st third of this cigar consisted of a rich dark chocolate taste that was complimented with an awesome syrupy type flavor and pepper. The 2nd third continued with these flavors and didn’t really change much except for a slight taste of wood being added into the mix. The last third continued with these above mentioned flavors and that’s basically how it ended.

Draw:Smooth.

Burn line: Jagged.

Liked it: Yes

Recommend it: Yes

Hint: None

Over All

Until Next Time
