It’s hard to where to begin on the first day of the trade show. So we got started with the letter ‘A’. That lead us to Luciano Meirelles in the A.C.E. Prime booth, and NBA stars Dominique Wilkins and Tiago Splitter. In this video we get to know A.C.E. Prime, how Dominique Wilkins and Tiago […]
A lot of people have asked us when we were going to do another Herfin’ Heads cigar review video. The answer is today. The technical terrors have been tamed (knock on cedar coffin), and we have a joint video review of the Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Muestra de Saka Nacatamale ready for viewing at your […]
There are a number of reasons to review the Partagas Ramon y Ramon. To begin with, we haven’t yet. That is generally reason enough. Then there’s the whole regenerated vintage tobacco thing. That’s also interesting. But the real reason I’m lighting up the Ramon y Ramon this week is that I won a box on […]

Hey fellas thanks for you help.Keep up the great reviews!
Good job, another informative session. I had some video issues where it was choppy early on and then played more smoothely. I’m not sure if it was just me or the clip. I had submitted a question similar to the “cheap friends” question, so please disregard unless you can suggest other inexpensive smokes. I’m thinking of giving them a real strong smoke that will knock them on their butts and hope they stay away from my humidor. I’ll take suggestions on those types of smokes as well.
As for the young being discriminated in shops, i’m thirty something and I still get some attitude. I’m relatively new to smoking so I still ask for recommendations and questions. If i find the sales people to be rude or noninformative, I simply take my business elsewhere. I personally believe that I’m paying for the cigars as well as the service\information I pick up at these shops. Otherwise, i’d just buy all my smokes online for much cheaper prices. Luckily, in Grand Central Station in NYC, there’s a cigar shop that is operated by guys around my age so I don’t feel like i’m being berated. Anyway, just my two cents.
I was looking forward to the triumphant return of Jerry, but I guess his little robusto takes precedence. If you’re out there, keep your head up….only 18 more years and you can have a life again! j/k….maybe!
Justin, you mentioned at the end of the video that we should leave comments and suggest other sticks to review…
I personally think one of you should get your hands on a Camacho Triple Maduro. I think it is one of the best cigar I have ever had, and I would like to know how others feel about it. By the way, get the 60 x 6 size it just enhances the flavor beautifully. The little robusto does not do it justice, and the figurado is good, but not quite perfection.
Where can you get the Tampa Sweathearts? I’ve been hearing quite a bit about them and want to give them a whirl. MDD.
I finally found one at a local shop. It is $10 for a robusto. I guess I will have to break down and buy one and review it for you. I was hoping a bigger size and you suggested that the robusto does not do it justice. I will check a few other shops and see if I can find it.
Thanks for putting my question about bad cigars on the segment & like Justin had mentioned C.I & C-Bid apparently have a good customer return policy. A buddy of mine at work made me feel pretty stupid when I mentioned this to him.

I gotta say that I’m hoping Jerry gets back soon. Walt does a great job but it seems like Walt & Justin don’t have chemistry. Watch the early episodes with Jerry and Walt and how much FUN they have togeher. Jerry seems to bring everyone’s personalities together.
Justin, if you can’t find them in shops you can always buy them online. This place is the only place I have seen that has them, and I have purchased a few from this site before. It’ s not fancy or anything, but I have had no problems with quality or service:
Haha, I put “Justin” as my name, and I was just trying to address you…
For some reason it didn’t post my previous comment, but basically I accidentally put “Justin” as my name, and said that you can purchase Triple Maduros from this site:
They are pretty reliable.
I can agree that Jerry is the “Life of the party” but I still enjoy the reviews a lot. I think they are making the reviews the best they can without him. I’d bet if you put Jerry with any group of people, he’d bring more life to that group. Either way, we all have our opinions. Mine is, keep the reviews and yqma coming!
Jerry – You should record an addendum to each of the YQMA episodes you’ve missed. I wouldn’t mind hearing your answers on some of these questions. Just a thought…
Vic – Thats a pretty sharp idea. I’ll talk to Walt and maybe we can do a “catch up” or a “YQMA In Review” type show.
Jerry – That would be an awesome episode to watch!
@Justin: I have a few of the Triple Maduros waiting for me in my humidor, if you don’t wanna review ’em, I can.
@Matt (and everyone): Don’t hesitate to recommend cigars (to me especially), I’m never sure what I should review next. I usually wet the ends of my fingers and stick them out the window to see which way the wind is blowing. It isn’t very helpful, but is kinda fun to do.
@Vic: I think everybody eagerly awaits the reappearance of the Stogie Review’s torpedo of charm!
@Jerry: Hey Jerry, what’s happenin’! A Jerry’s catch up segment sounds great. Just don’t think you can have Friday back. It’s mine, I tell you, mine! BWA HA HA HA!
New to the site and am enjoying it so far. I have a few that I would like to suggest for possible future review:
1. Avo Signature Cigars (Small Corona & Double Corona do it just right) – One of my all time favorites
2. José Seijas Signature Series (52 gauge, 6 1/2″) – $12-14. New in my Humidor this year and I am astonished at this amazing smoke. Full Body that washes away all things negative from a bad day. Cigar Details : Sungrown Habanos 2000 from San Andreas MX, Olor Binder, Ligero and Seco from Dominican Republic Filler
I can always offer additional suggestions if desired. I often pick up something new to try, and more often end up in the higher price range.
3. On the less than $10 a stick, I really love the Tatuaje Havana VI Angeles
