Bodega Reunion Digestivo Robusto Extra

Posted by Jack | in Bodega Cigars, Emilio Cigars | on 11 Jul 2014 | at 4:38 PM | 1361 views

There is only one cigar under the Emilio umbrella that, until this review, I had to try.  The Bodega brand is a pretty small label under Gary's distribution...only two cigars in their catalog so far.  On the menu for today is the Digestivo.  Made to smoke after dinner with a brandy or cognac, this cigar is said to be very sweet.  I am intrigued.  Here goes.... Construction: A hefty leathery Mexican San Andres wrapper covers this chunky cigar.  The seams are nice and the veins are very well managed. Pre-light Aroma and Draw: Some leather and cocoa notes appear once the cellophane is gone.  I picked up some very sweet raisin and cocoa from the foot as well. Light and Burn: The Digestivo burns perfectly... Continue reading »»

 


 

Emilio Drag Cayuquero Corona

Posted by Jack | in Emilio Cigars | on 19 Dec 2013 | at 11:55 AM | 4873 views

Today we are going to discover one of Gary Griffith's limited releases, the Draig Cayuquero.  Cayuquero roughly translates to troublemaker.  Emilio Cigars has been batting a thousand for the past couple of years and this new limited edition Cayuquero, following up the terrific Draig K, is simply outstanding.  Let's dive into this thing right now.... Construction: The Cayuquero is a pretty little cigar with a deep brown oily wrapper and a few veins.  The few of these I have had have all been stellar in the construction department too.  Quality is the name of the game. Pre-light Aroma and Draw: Out of the cellophane, the Cayuquero gives off a terrific bouquet of sweet tobacco, cedar, and a slight pepper.  I also note a very unusual... Continue reading »»

 


 

Guayacan Robusto

Posted by Jack | in Emilio Cigars, Guayacan | on 15 May 2013 | at 4:15 PM | 1802 views

Hailing from the Emilio Cigars catalog of excellent partnerships comes the Guayacan.  Named for a shrub that grows in the tropics (aka Soapbush) and created by Noel Rojas, this cigar label is among the many Emilio products recently added to the already heavily stocked shelves at The Wharf.  My good buddy, Josh....or " Not Steve" as we call him, was able to smoke a sample provided by Emilio sales manager, Nate McIntyre, and he raved about it.  As the giant shipment of Emilio products finally landed at the shop today, I was able to snag one of them as the box was opened.  Josh and I typically have similar tastes in cigars so this one seemed to be right up my alley.  How is it? ...

Emilio Serie H Sumatra Toro

Posted by Jack | in Emilio Cigars | on 07 May 2013 | at 6:49 PM | 1457 views

I have enjoyed every single cigar from Emilio Cigars, that I have tried thus far.  Each one not only excels at being a great cigar but each one is unique and fills in a spot in what is shaping up to be an amazing catalog.  Over the past few months, I have really learned to enjoy Sumatra wrappers.  I know a few guys that wrinkle their noses at that but Sumatra is a nice mild leaf that can be paired with a plethora of binders and fillers to achieve all sorts of flavor profiles.  My current favorite cigar on Earth is the Tatuaje Cojonu 2012 Sumatra.  So, seeing the Serie H Sumatra in the stash of samples from Nate at Emilio Cigars, I started salivating. ...

Ezra Zion Honor Series Reagan 40th

Posted by Jack | in Emilio Cigars, Ezra Zion | on 27 Apr 2013 | at 5:20 PM | 1628 views

Ronald Reagan - movie star, public figure, 40th President of these United States.  I remember 3rd grade when we heard about the assassination attempt.  It was terrifying.    Of course, I also recall the quote from Airplane, " I haven't felt this awful since that Ronald Reagan film."   Mr. Reagan, to me, will always be the President of my school days.  Regardless of your opinions of his politics, you have to respect the guy.  In that light, Ezra Zion has created a cigar to honor our late President.  I have read a bit about this cigar and found myself very excited to give it a try.  I was given one as a sample for the Wharf so, without haste, let's give this thing a...
