Starting out the day with a cigar is always good. The Alec Bradley Black Market Punk is medium-bodied, which is what we’ve come to expect from Alec Bradley.

Romeo 505 | Gispert Intenso | Asylum 13 7×70 | Cigar Cafe Podcast

The Leaf Connecticut and the Corojo by Oscar are great cigars as they burn well, but it just doesn’t hit the target for some. Even with its promise of a full body release, the Romeo 505 Nicaragua is not quite as strong as some expected it to be. But the AVO Syncro Fogata, although being […]

Sobremesa | Mi Querida | Jay Gaydon Guest | Cigar Cafe Radio

The Sobremesa by Steve Saka of Dunbarton Tabacco and Trust has a complexity that is a welcome change for cigar connoisseurs.

La Palina | Cigar Cafe Radio | Diamond Crown Black Diamond

Watching a football game during the weekend can make you smoke two kinds of cigar. One where you win and one where you lose.
