I guess “Special” isn’t always used in a positive light. I’m no expert on Gurkha cigars. In fact, I’m really not sure if I’ve smoked anything, ever, from Gurkha before this Warlord. But I do know a little bit about cigars and in all honesty, I found nothing special about this edition of the Gurkha […]
A few weeks ago I was digging through one of my humidors looking for something interesting to smoke. In the process, I found a small cache of mixed singles I picked up at last year’s IPCPR. I felt a small twinge of guilt that I hadn’t gotten to them sooner, but then, there are only […]
Continuing on my Rocky Patel kick, I’m back this week with a review of the Rocky Patel Renaissance. Now if you were following my escapades in Orlando earlier in the month you will know that I had my first Renaissance while I was vacationing but lets see how the Renaissance holds up back here in […]
With a little spare time in the morning, I searched through my cooler looking for a cigar to review this week. I came up empty handed in terms of a mild morning smoke, so I went with something that I could smoke in a short ashes format. Having met up with my local Miami Cigar […]
On Sunday I was talking with Jerry via Twitter and got word that the weather in Maryland was no better than here in PA. As a result, Jerry didn’t think he was going to be able to pull off his Tuesday review. In order to cover him, I got to work on smoking a cigar […]

After a video-heavy week, I’d say we’re about due for another written review. Accordingly, I’ve slipped the flipcam into it’s case and grabbed the point-and-shoot to give you another textual cigar smoking experience. You may be looking at this review’s title thinking, “Marco V, hmm. Haven’t I read reviews on this stick already on a […]
Tom and Ed are back once again with another video review. This time the guys take a look at the 2009 release of the Punch rare Corojo.
Similar to my review on the Rocky Patel Cuban Blend the Rocky Patel Rosado is a Famous Exclusive…meaning you can only get them at Famous Smoke Shop. Again, in the interest of complete transparency I wanted to say that Famous Smoke Shop is an advertiser with The Stogie Review and we’re also good friends on […]
Brian and I get together for around 30 minutes one sunny day and talk cigars while reviewing the Illusione eccj.
