Dona Flor (Guest Review)

Not too long ago I got to trading emails with Tom Adcock, one of our regular visitors, and we got to talking about a guest video review. He told me that he had a good friend named Ed Nazarewho own and operates St Pete Pipe and Cigar down in St Petersburg Florida.

After hearing so many interesting things about Ed and his shop I thought it would be a great idea to have him put together a guest video for the site. After watching the video I am excited to see what Ed and Tom can put together for our viewers next. This was their first video and I think they did a very nice job.

So without any further ado, here is Ed Nazare and Tom Adcock in their first video featuring the Dona Flor.

  1. Great review guys! I’m going to definately hunt down the
    Dona Flor at my B & M in my area. Hope to see more of you guys.

  2. Thanks Walt and BJ for the kind words. Sorry for my poor audio. Perhaps better mic placment will help next time. Plus I can’t compete with Ed’s powerful voice 😉

    BJ – You can probably find them since they are starting to become avail. at more shops and maybe even online somewhere.


  3. Tom & Ed, great review! So good, in fact, I did a quick search online to make a 5 pack purchase and it turns out that the Dona Flor is a hard cigar to find. The cigar that you were smoking I couldn’t find at all. You guys should anticipate a few extra orders on this brand & you may want to update your website for online purchases! Thanks again & I look forward to seeing more from you in the future!

  4. That was a great review! I am looking foward to seeing what you produce next. That Dona Flor is a good cigar also. I only should have picked up more while in Florida last time. If Ed updates the site to allow online orders Ill purchase some more from him.

  5. Exalent Reveiw there T & E. I look forwards to more. I love reviews of smoke I normaly walk past in shops. Might I also add that Dona FLor needs to update his webpage…. or get one.

  6. Great review. I will be on the hunt for the Dona Flor. I dug the music too. Hope to see more reviews from you.

  7. Thanks for all the comments. A talent like Ed should be shared on the internet. The guy knows his stuff.

    Initially I wanted to have Ed do a solo review, since he is the expert and I’m literally just a smoker of cigars. But somehow I ended up being a noob on film. Luckily he bailed me out!

  8. Maybe it’s me….but on Firefox the video displays incorrectly. I can only see the top of someone’s head. It works in full screen mode though.

  9. Video worked great here. Good review guys. And Tom, you did a great job and should continue to do them with Ed.

  10. Excellent review guys. Sorry I missed a good smoke at the filming. I’ll have to make sure I show up to the next one so I can personally see the Cigar Legends in the making 😉

  11. Great review. Wow, Ed has some palate. I’m envious. My palate is mediocre on a good day. Nice cigar shop 🙂


  12. Wow, this was a great surprise! I enjoyed the whole video, and I’m glad you selected a cigar that we don’t hear about every day. I’ve also been looking for a good Brazilian cigar to try out and so I will definitely give this one a smoke as soon as I can find one. I hope to see more reviews from you guys!

  13. Tom and Ed, you guys were great. I hope to see you regularly here on SR. You guys have a nice on camera chemistry. Nice review.

  14. Thanks again everyone. In all honesty, I am simply providing the camera and splicing the video together, but Ed has the brains and cigar experience as you can see. I think the video shows that I’m no expert, and Ed compensates for that big time. He was instrumental in my introduction to cigars, and knowing a guy like that is a constant learning experience.

  15. One last note. Some of you showed interest in wanting to try some of these. There is a shop locater on Dona Flor’s website . Hopefully they can point you to a dealer in your area. If not, call Ed directly, he can guide you no problem.


  16. Great review guys!! These reviews really show the relaxing nature of smoking great cigars. I will surely try the Dona Flor and based on your review, I am really looking forward to it. Also looking forward to more reviews from you guys. Nice work.

  17. So I’m a bit late to the party (been playing catch up). Tom and Ed you guys did great! I don’t know Ed but I love him. SR was always missing the elderly statesman type.

    Great video, great review and most of all, I loved the fact that you guys used a v-cut…

  18. Hello Tom and Ed,

    I greatly enjoyed both reviews of the Dona Flor and the Selecao Robusto you guys did, but I’ve been wondering: what is the difference between the regular Dona Flor Robusto and the Selecao version? I can’t find the answer at the manufacturer’s website… Could you help me out!
