Casa de Torres Coronas


Hello everyone, today I am reviewing the Casa De Torres which I was gifted from one of neighbors.  To my knowledge they do not carry these cigars in the States so if you want to try some you will have to go online.  So with the history behind us, I am now ready to give you my verdict on if it passes the mighty “Stew” test or not.

 

 

CIGAR MAKE UP:

WRAPPER: Connecticut

BINDER & FILLER: Honduran / Nicaraguan

Length/Ring: 5.5 X 42

Strength: Medium

Price: Gifted unknown of actual price per stick.

 

 

My Observations: Not a bad looking cigar at all. One of its nice features is the light brown Connecticut leaf wrapper that is surrounded by medium size vein. As I twirled this specimen in my fingers, I found no imperfections or soft spots and to tell you the truth I am impressed to say the least.

  • Over all “A” in the grading department

Cigar Label: Gold, blue, and white colors that match well in the creation of this fine label.

Snip: Straight cut.

Pre-Draw:  Spice.

 

 

Flavors: The 1st third of this cigar consisted of spice, honey, and coffee. The 2nd third continued with these flavors but was joined with small hints of floral.  The last third continued with these flavors and thats how it finished out.

Draw: Perfect

Burn line: Straight

Liked it: Yes

Recommend it: Yes.

Hint: If you can find it, its worth the try.

 

 

Over All

Until Next Time

Rocky Patel Vintage Cameroon 2003

Hello everyone, today I am reviewing the Rocky Patel Vintage 2003.  This is my first Rocky Patel review for 2012,  and I have heard good things about it so I’m pretty pumped to find out if he’s hit a home run or struck out.  Anyway, I found this cigar at the Smoke Stack in North Providence for my Rhode Island readers.  So with the history behind us, I am now ready to give you my verdict on if it passes the mighty “Stew” test or not.

CIGAR MAKE UP:

WRAPPER: Cameroon

BINDER & FILLER: Nicaraguan / Nicaraguan

Length/Ring: 6.5 X 52

Strength: Medium

Price: $7.55

My Observations: This is a very nice looking cigar that was rolled perfectly. I say this because of its nice medium brown leaf wrapper that is surrounded by small non noticeable veins. On my finger touch inspection I found no soft spots.

  • Over all “A” in the grading department

Cigar Label: Blue and white. Very nice touch Mr. Patel

Snip: Straight cut.

Pre-Draw:  Spice.

Flavors: The 1st third of this cigar consisted of a small touch of spice, and lots of leather. The 2nd third consisted of coffee, leather, wood. The last third continued with these flavors and that’s how it finished out.

Draw: Perfect

Burn line: Nice and even.

Liked it: Yes

Recommend it: Yes.

Over All

Until Next Time
