I’ve got a treat for those of you who can’t get enough video cigar reviews. Once again I’ve teamed up with Rich Meade (aka “BootyRockRich“), a regular on the Stogie Review Forums, to bring you a joint review of the new La Flor Dominicana Air Bender Matatan.
One of the fun things about talking cigars with Rich is the fact we usually have very different opinions. So when we arrived at a similar verdict in our last video, we were a little disappointed. And a little worried. Neither of us exhibited any signs of a concussion, so crossed our fingers and hoped it was a fluke. Was it? You’ll just have to check out the video and see. (And don’t forget to submit your entry for the giveaway!)
