Once upon a time, Stogie Review was contacted by a rep for Cigars of Brazil. This rep was a nice guy and offered to send all three of us a couple of sample products to do a review on. Brian (Tipton), Jerry, and I each did a review of one of the three cigars sent our way. Somewhere along the way, I set one of my samples aside and forgot about it.
More than two years later, while digging around for a cigar to do a short ashes review on, I found my Dona Flor sample in the bottom of a box of random cigars. Interested in seeing how this stick had changed over the years, I decided to fire it up and conduct a short ashes review.

Good review Walt. I like your short ashes. I’ve not tried one but quite frankly, I wasn’t inspired by the original reviews I saw since the cigar seems to be one that you have to hunt for the flavors. My palate requires the flavors to smash out and erupt or I just plain miss them. So now, my opinion is even more solid based upon your review 🙂 I’ll pass on this one.
Walt, I cannot view the video. I have tried opening it in Safari, Firefox, and IE and nothing. The MP3 works but not the video.
Give it a try now and see what happens. When I tried viewing this morning I immediately got “More” and “Play Again” as if the video was finished. I re-embedded it in a non-iPhone friendly format and it seems to be working, although slow to start.
If all else fails, it appears to play fine on Blip.tv
Strange that this cigar didn’t go well for you. As for the ‘new’ Dona Flor’s, I’ve tried the Select, and have to say it was better then before. Definately worth a try.
