The wrapper of the CAO Flathead 554 (V554 Camshaft) is a rich, oily, black maduro with fine veins and beautiful construction, holding true to CAO-level quality. This is a box-pressed cigar which leaves the cap flat instead of a rounded appearance, and I’m quite fond of the connection to the concept of a classic flathead motor’s design.  I love the band on the CAO Flathead 554. Harking back to the iconic era of classic muscle cars, this thick black band is wrapped in silver lines mimicking a motorcycle or car motor’s valve covers. The center image of the band contains a small CAO logo above a classic 50′s style font reading FLATHEAD 554 in the center, wrapped in a geometric/motor style graphic.

Eight years ago, a man in Chicago decided to walk away fro a career in finance and enter the cigar business. Shortly after, the kristoff brand was born. The man was glen case, and in order to stand out in the competitive cigar market, he packaged his smokes in eye catching rustic bxes filled with shredded tobacco. Rolled at the Charles Fiairmorn factory in the Dominican Republic ( a facility that focuses primarily on the Euorpean Market), Kristoff quickly gained a small following. As the cigar gained popularity Cases was able to branch out and create more blends, one of which was the Kristoff Corojo Limitada, which came out in 2011. The Torpedo certainly got our attention with a high score last year. About 85 percent of the cigar is made with Cuban seed Nicaraguan tobacco. The rest is blalanced by leaves of Cuban seed Dominican Habano, and while the smoke is piquant and spicy, it is also balanced by leaves of Cuban seed Dominican Habano, and while the smoke is piquant and spicy, it is also balanced. The tobacco's scarcity allows Case to make only 16,000 of these torpedos a year.

Montecristo Cabinet Selección Robusto – Cigar Review


The name Montercirsto is almost synonymous with cigars. In fact, normally when i mention cigars to my friends who do no smoke regularly they will bring up the name Montecristo. Recently i found the Cabinet stlye of Montecristo. Altadis produces a few of their brands in Cabinet Seleccions, including Romeo Y Julieta, Por Larranaga, and H Upman. The Montecristo Cabinet Seleccion is described as a "enticing invitation to savor a fuller-bodied smoker with a distinctively alluring aroma" according to Altadis website. You can read the full description of the Montecristo Cabinet Seleccion from Altadis. 

Construction and Appearance: The Montecristo Cabinet Selección has a band with the same style of the Montecristo white, except under the band it saysCabinet Selección. The wrapper is a very dark brown, a little darker than many Sumatra wrappers, with mild veins and a beautiful oil to it. It features a tight cap and feels very firm and heavy in hand.

Flavor and Notes: The wrapper of the Montecristo Cabinet Selección has notes of subtle spice, grass, and some molasses. The foot has a scent which is a combination of earth, spice, grass, and a little wood. I use a straight cut to prepare smoking the Montecristo Cabinet Selección and there is a flavor which is a mix of grass, molasses, wood, nuts, and an earthiness close to mushrooms on the cold draw.

Characteristics: The Montecristo Cabinet Selección starts out with a deep sweet rich flavor with notes of grass, earth, and molasses with a nice meatiness to it, something I want to sink my teeth into. The smoke leaves a nice savory and sweet finish on the palate, and is very smooth, cool, and rich. About an inch in, there is also a little pepper which plays out on the palate, but is not present in the smoking profile. During the first third, the draw is a little tight but not unsatisfactory. The ash holds very firmly during the first third, easily to the inch mark.

Michigan Governor Approves Cigar Tax Cap


 

Michigan Governor Richard Snyder has signed legislation that caps the state's excise tax on cigars at 50 cents.The new law was signed on Tuesday and goes into effect on November 1.

A spokesman for the governor said that the new 50-cent cap should help Michigan cigar shops compete with online cigar retailers that don't collect the tax.

In addition, the tax cap will also reduce the price cigar enthusiasts pay for most premium cigars in a retail shop.

Michigan is now the eighth state to adopt a tax cap of some sort on premium cigars, joining Oregon, Washington, Rhode Island, Wisconsin, Iowa, Connecticut and Vermont.

E. P. Carrillo to Release New INCH Series

EP Carrillo Cigar company announces the shipment of it’s latest creation, the INCH. Three different vitolas, No. 60 5 7/8 x 60, No. 62 5 x 62, and No. 64 6 1/8 x 64 will be produced in both Maduro and Natural wrappers. The cigar has either Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro or Ecuador Sumatra wrapper for the maduro and natural lines respectively. They share the same blend of Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan and Dominican (Piloto Cubano, Corojo and Criollo ’98) fillers. Both cigars are billed at medium to full.

The tobaccos that EP Carrillo have available will limit this production to less than 125,000 cigars for 2012. This may make the INCH a rare commodity, given the success of the other Carrillo releases to date.

CRA News Letter: Cigars – Just Like Jazz, Contentment Can Come in Every Stick

I am an American, by choice. That’s a unique statement given that many among us are Americans simply by virtue of where they were born, but when you choose to live in a nation, to adopt its traditions, based upon a love for what it has to offer – well – that’s special.

I know something about oppression, too. Having left my homeland of Cuba for what I knew was the freedom America offered, you have to reflect on the cost of leaving behind relatives and friends in what you know is an oppressed nation. Globally, oppression of innocent citizens simply has to end, in all forms – which is why I write this.

Oppression comes in many forms. We all know about freedom of speech, press, assembly, and basic expression – None of which we had in Cuba, and I craved to have in the United States; but what about being oppressed for just enjoying life, for being among friends, or for partaking of a perfectly legal cigar? Is that much different than ‘rights’ given by a piece of paper or law? I don’t think so. It’s about just being free – free to relax, free to dream, and free to pause with a cigar.

Music has given me everything. It allows the imagination to roam, to use the mind and heart in ways that bring a joy to life otherwise unimaginable. A cigar can have the same effect.

By sitting alone with a cigar, again, the mind and heart begin to roam. Among the rings of aromatic smoke come thoughts of good times, reflection of cherished moments, and dreams of the future. With a great cigar, time can stand still. Stress can become a distant feeling, and contentment can come easily. My goodness, that sounds like music, poetry, or staring at a great painting. You see, cigars are, indeed, an art form. No different than my music, or a classic painting or book. They each work to give meaning to life. That’s a cigar, to me.

That’s why I am a proud Lifetime Member of Cigar Rights of America. That’s why government intrusion into cigars, whether you make them, sell them, or just have one on your front porch, must stop. Join the cause of Cigar Rights of America. Tell your elected officials to stop oppression of those that simply want to enjoy life – with a cigar.

White and gold in perfect harmony – the Davidoff “White Edition” 2012

 

The smoking pleasure they afford and their stylish appearance make the Davidoff Limited Edition 2012 a collector’s item for cigar aficionados and lovers of sophisticated design.

Pinellas Park, August 1, 2012. Davidoff is presenting its limited edition in the form of an elegant “White Edition” for the second time. The cigar’s dark wrapper leaf gives the perfect contrast to the white band with classic Davidoff lettering in gold. In addition to the main band, the cigar bears a white band at the foot with a discreet mother-of-pearl inscription “2012”. The special Robusto Gordo format also lends the cigar a harmonious appearance.

A strong and full-bodied taste is the hallmark of the Davidoff “White Edition” 2012. Filler tobaccos from a number of different growing regions in the Dominican Republic were matured over six years before finally being brought together to form this special vintage. Due to the addition of the Piloto binder leaf and choice Dominican Criollo wrapper leaf, smokers will be delighted by the aromatic and complex notes in the finish.

A cigar of such noble character deserves an exceptional packaging to match. The Davidoff “White Edition” 2012 comes in a white enamelled box of which just 8,000 individually numbered specimens will be offered for sale worldwide. The Davidoff “White Edition” 2012 will be available at authorized tobacconists in the US from August 1, 2012.

Wrapper:  Dominican Criollo

Binder:  Piloto

Filler:  Piloto Ligero,  Criollo Visus,  Olor/Piloto Hybrid Visus,  Corojo Visus, and  San Vicente Ligero
