  1. Article from Granma regarding the newly accepted (16-17 campaign) Corojo 2012 Strain. No mention as to the qualities of the tobacco as a finished product, only that it will be more resistant to disease, and most importantly, yield two more leaves per plant.

So, a reach back to the old Corojo, or another step away from the cuban black tobacco of old?
  2. Swung by the local B&M today and picked up a single Monte 520 then went home and went on a nice run. I figured I should reward myself for running so I took this guy to flame. Some thoughts: * This is a big cigar. At a 55rg it is a bit too big for my liking * Can't deny that the cigar is visually awesome! A smooth dark brown wrapper that just begs to be smoked * I knew this cigar was probably a bit over humidified for my tastes, but I lit it anyway * First third, OMG what a great cigar.

Alex will update the website with further images within the next few days. This number corresponds with the bar-code number.
  4. RG: 50 Length: 115 mm Handmade, using short-filler tobacco I admit I'm a fan of Quintero. The Quintero - Brevas is clearly one of my favorite cigars. Although it is not always an optical appealing. From the age of about 7 years, I find it extremely balanced, aromatic and delicious. So I am glad that now a (short) robusto cigar of this brand is available. Optics: The cigar comes in a classic Colorado. The somewhat ruder wrapper has individual thicker veins. Furthermore, the structure of the second wrapper is partially visible. This underlines the impression. In my opinion, this corresponds

  6. Alright, it's nearing that time of year, when a certain magazine picks their "Top 25" of the year and all Internet cigar forums whip themselves into a bloody froth. So, let's hear some opinions. What 2012 releases do you think will make it into this most coveted list? Let's stick to Cubans for the most part. Feel free to list any exceptional NC's too. And we're off!!
