Box pressed at its finest is how i describe this cigar. These cigars are handmade with a blend of 7 yr-aged Dominican & Nicaraguan fillers with a vintage '90 Maduro wrapper. The smoke is full-bodied, creamy, smooth and full of flavor. When i first lit the cigar up it had a lot of deep smells.

Acid Gold Cold Fusion Tea
Country: Nicaragua Length/Ring: 6 3/4 x 44 Shape: Lonsdale Wrapper: Natural Strength: Medium MSRP: $5.50
My rating:To start out Acid cigars are not like any cigars on earth. They are infused with herbs and botanicals and have a distint smell and taste. Most people either hate or love Acid cigars. I for one love them, they are not as powerful as a full blown flavored cigar but have just enough flavor and aroma to make them unique. This stars … Continue reading the story "Acid Gold Cold Fusion Tea"

Gurkha Master's SelectCountry: Dominican Republic Length/Ring: 6 x 50 Shape: Toro Wrapper: Natural Strength: Medium Where to Buy: Tinderbox, Cigars.com, Cigars Direct MSRP: $5.00 My rating: starsThis is a great smoke. They are hand-rolled from fine tobaccos grown in the Cibao Valley of the Dominican Republic, expertly blended with an aged mixture of Nicaraguan and Honduran long-fillers. The gorgeous, dark yet not maduro, silky Habana 2000 wrapper imparts a rich, creamy flavor with a hint of spice and pleasant, finish with a burst of flavor.
Where to Buy: Tinderbox, Cigars.com, Cigars Direct I bought a box of these cigars from JR Cigar a couple of weeks ago, they came with a free ashtray. How awesome is that? Anyway, this is a good medium to full smoke with lots of leathery and coffee notes. The draw is medium to good and the smoke is a nice white cloud. I would recommend this smoke, they retail for around $4.00 a stick. I give this cigar a 7 out of 10
Where to Buy: Tinderbox, Thompson, Cigars.com I smoked a 5 vegas torpedo on Saturday night and it was good. The 5 Vegas line is a good line crafted in the prestigious La Aurora factory in Santiago, Dominican Republic. So you know its comes from a good production line. The draw was good and the cigar is constructed very well. The only con i have with this cigar is the texture and smoke quality are a bit sub par.
