Mike Ditka Throwback
Mike Ditka's partnership with Camacho Cigars began in 2012 with the release of cigars commemorating the legendary coach's life, and continues this year with the release of the Throwback, which recalls Ditka's time in the NFL. This rich, full bodied cigar is presented in handsome single-cigar coffins. Sometimes, famous names and fancy packaging are a sign of a cigar that...
In the mid 19th Century, Jose and Eusebio, cousins and offsprings of immigrants from Canary Island owned a small cigar factory with about 12 employees on Macías Street of Santiago de Las Vegas, a province of Havana.

The Asylum 13 6x80 cigar I most recently reviewed draws comments from everyone who sees it, and the new 7x70 Ogre, with its barberpole wrapper intertwining a green candela wrapper with the traditional Habano maduro wrapper is a standout as well.
