At the Gilbertsville Cigar Factory, we’ve been having a slight problem. It has nothing to do with the shop – the trouble is with everyone’s favorite budget cigar. Over the past couple of months the supply of Charter Oak Maduro has stalled and word has been getting around that they may be back-ordered for some […]
In this weeks installment of Look what I bought on Cigar Monster I’d like to take you on a trip down memory lane. Back when Christian Eiroa unleashed on the world a cigar made entirely or Maduro. A cigar that would put hair on your chest and make the ladies swoon – The Camacho Triple […]
Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been dabbling in cigars from my past. The most recent of which is the CAO America Monument – a 54 x 6.25 Belicoso that launched way back at the 2007 RTDA (or was it the IPCPR that year?) It’s hard to believe that this cigar was released so […]

Great review Justin! I received the same sampler from Frank, and have yet to try either of the corojo’s. I might have to go home and try one. 🙂
Both the maduro’s I smoked were excellent and I didn’t have the burn issue you had with the Power corojo. Maybe it was a bad stick…I’ll have to see if I have the same kind of burn problem with mine.
Good review on the stick. I was expecting more from a $13 stick, but I guess that’s the way the cigar crumbles…..literally. Anyway, I noticed you showed how you cut your cigar. Normally you guys cut it off camera and it’s nice to see the steps from unwrapping, cutting to lighting. I’m still using the table technique to get an even cut…yes, yes, i’m a noob. Anyway, I just ordered my burlwood Palio from Cigarmony so hopefully that gives me the confidence to cut freehand.
Nice review Justin. I tolerate bad burns since I smoke outside but really wierd to see a bad burn on a cigar smoked inside. But c’est la vie, sounds like the flavor was excellent so what a bit of bad burn between friends?
Enjoyed the review as always. Maybe this is a question for YQMA, but I notice you guys tend to never (or rarely) correct burn problems, opting to see if it will correct itself. How bad does it have to get before you take the lighter to it? I know a bad burn really gets on my nerves, almost to the point of obsessing over it.
