Stealing this idea from our own Brian “Mouth of the South” Hewitt. We get so many questions about what cigars we smoke when we aren’t reviewing. So this is a brief summary of the cigars I’ve smoked in the past week (give or take a few days). Some of these smokes have been reviewed before or at some point we plan on reviewing.
The La Aurora Broadway Series is my most recent review and like I pointed out, I can’t get enough of them. Great flavor, great concept with a price that could be a little more friendly.
A cigar that I was introduced to on my recent trip to NYC. Old School Cigars are
made by Alec Bradley made at the same factory as Alec Bradley and features a dark toothy Mexican wrapper..interesting. Friendly price of around $8. Look for a full review soon.
For me this is a classic cigar. One of my all time favorite cigars that I’ve reviewed previously. The Man O’War Ruination is made by AJ Fernandez and is just a cigar that my humidors are never without. Great balance of power, strength and flavor.
Speaking of AJ Fernandez how about the Ave Maria which is the latest cigar made for Cigars International/Cigar.com. We featured a guest review awhile back but look for a full review soon to find out how AJ’s latest release holds up.
The Ligar Privada T52 by Drew Estate made my Top 10 list for 2010. For a cigar that I really didn’t care for at first it fast became a staple in my humidor. Love its unique aroma…nothing like it in the world.
Another cigar that made my Top 10 list this year. The My Father Le Bijou 1922 is such a treat to smoke. I think the Petite Robusto size is where the blend really shines with so much flavor and balance packed into a small format. Again, another cigar that has a permanent place in my humidors. Nothing begins or ends a day like a Le Bijou.

One minor correction on the Old School. It’s made at Tropical, the same factory that makes Alec Bradley.
All fixed…thanks for the correction Barry.
Mouth of the South is right. Lol
Nice, Jerry. It is neat to see what you guys smoke other than reviews. I gotta say I’m branching out on my cigars because of the Stogie Review and the Great Torpedo. I’ll actually be smoking an Illusione 888 today on my way home. Keep up the great work!
They say great minds think alike. I have also been considering stealing Brian’s “Week in Smoke” idea. LOL
what size in the Ave Maria do you think is the best? I have had the robusto which I enjoyed.
C’MON! Y’all can’t credit that dimwit Hewitt. His Week in Smoke is short….grape swisher sweets. LOL
PS – Nice list, McCruz. Looking forward to the Ave Maria review. Those look interesting.
Shoveled my life away today before lighting a Le Bijou. Like you said nothing like it. Love the idea of the week in smoke too. Wishful thinking to do a week in review every week?
Ryan – I think that could be arranged. Its pretty easy to do since we TwitPic and/or post in the forums pics of what we are smoking anyways.
I almost pulled the trigger on a 5pack of the AveMaria … wish I had now!
Look at you getting all fancy with the photo treatments! haha
My Father Le Bijoue I think has become my favorite smoke. It’s a toss up between that and the Padron 64 maduro. But that is one DAMN fine cigar. It is a complete pleasure every time I’ve ever lit one, in every size. I think i dig the Toro a little more, I know i’ll get a lot of disagreement on that one though.
That’s a good week. Thanks fella.
Ha ha…I can’t take credit for the photo treatments. I just use an app on my iPhone call Hipstamatic.
I love these segments even if Brian fathered them! Would be great to see these from Walt & Mike as well!
I was like, Check it out, Brian got creative with the photo layouts Then realized I had missed that this was a TGT edition. After the 3 of you had published your top 10 lists, I picked one box from each of your lists and pulled the trigger. Le Bijou is flat-out phenomenal. Took your advice and went with the Petite Robusto. I dread getting to the end of the cigar cause I dont want it to end. Seriously…It almost depresses me.
I prefer to START the day with this smoke.
A week in smoke every week would be tits!!
