Fleur De La Reine Quatre Maduro
Fleur De La Reine is the creation of the United Cigar Group, makers of the Wheel Box Limited Edition and other great brands.
Given my preference for full-flavored robustos, I decided to review the smaller Quatre Maduro -- although the Fleur De La Reine line features both a 6x60 (Six) and a Churchill (Sept).
Measuring 4 ⅞" long, with a 52 ring gauge, the Quatre features a Connecticut broadleaf maduro wrapper, with a Dominican binder and a Honduran filler.
The Quatre's wrapper is thick and veiny,...
Rocky Patel Edge Habano
Rocky Patel is one of the brands we carry that really needs no introduction. Patel himself is one of the rock stars of the industry, and it seems like he's releasing a new line every other month. The prolific nature of Patel's production creates...

It is time to review Cigar Aficionado's 2012 "Cigar of the year", and see what this cigar is all about! Many of our customers...
The Curivari Cafe series is another strong addition to a string of Nicaraguan releases that attempt to capture the experience of a Cuban cigar.
As I've mentioned before, the "What do you have that's like a Cuban?" question is a common one in the shop, and it's a hard one to answer. I'm a firm believer...
Since cigar legend Christian Luis Eiroa returned to the forefront of tobacciana in 2012 from his former company Camacho (now a subsidiary of the Davidoff Group) with a cigar company under the acronym CLE much alike CAO. Christian’s tobaccos primarily hail from Honduras, with secondary front mark’s Asylum (Nicaragua), and Wynwood (Miami) the focal point of this long overdue review. CLE Cigar Company is based out of Miami (the penultimate melting pot of the industry)...
Size: 6 ¼’ x 52 Ring
Filler: Dominican and Nicaraguan
When this cigar was initially released, I had the same preconceived notions that have plagued the Nat Sherman brand for the last couple of years. Upon finding out that this cigar had made the Cigar Aficionado Top 25 list coming in at #10, I decided to pick one up and see what all the fuss was about. Finding out Manuel Quesada was behind the blend (who is also behind the well decorated Casa Magna line) didn’t hurt much either...

6 X 60 Ring gauge
Puro Havana Criollo seed
I have been wanting to smoke this cigar for a long time now and it has been a fixture in my humidor for months. I look at it every time I open the lid, but I was saving it for the right time. Why? Because I had previously smoked the Antano Dark Corojo, and wow, what a cigar! So, I had high hopes for this cigar!!...
Chubby's Maduro Short
6 X 60 Perfecto Maduro
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Maduro
Made by Cuban Stock
I decided to review this cigar because many of my customers in Reisterstown indicated really liking this cigar and I hadn't gotten around to smoking it yet.
The cigar is very dark almost black maduro wrapper with a few minor veins and nice oily sheen, the cap is seamless and the cigar feels very well constructed...
L'Atelier LAT 54
Pete Johnson has established himself as one of the truly great cigar makers of the last decade. His Tatuaje brand was true to his commitment to produce flavorful Cuban style cigars. His latest Brand, L'Atelier, takes aim at one of the most lauded cigars in recent memory. Each of the three sizes of L'Atelier is modeled, after the Cohiba Behike, which was named Cigar Aficionado's Cigar of
the Year in 2010...
