At the Gilbertsville Cigar Factory, we’ve been having a slight problem. It has nothing to do with the shop – the trouble is with everyone’s favorite budget cigar. Over the past couple of months the supply of Charter Oak Maduro has stalled and word has been getting around that they may be back-ordered for some […]
In this weeks installment of Look what I bought on Cigar Monster I’d like to take you on a trip down memory lane. Back when Christian Eiroa unleashed on the world a cigar made entirely or Maduro. A cigar that would put hair on your chest and make the ladies swoon – The Camacho Triple […]
Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been dabbling in cigars from my past. The most recent of which is the CAO America Monument – a 54 x 6.25 Belicoso that launched way back at the 2007 RTDA (or was it the IPCPR that year?) It’s hard to believe that this cigar was released so […]

So you did get your Perdomo lighter. The stick sounds nice. I agree that if you’re being charged $10+, they should ensure that the cigars won’t be so easily susceptible to damage. I would think that by the time they’re ready to box up, fermentation would not be an issue.
Hope you guys have a blast at CigarFest!
I believe that my local B&M mentioned that he might have them next week. Have to give it a shot. Flavor profile sounds great. Thanks for the review.
Nice one again! I was so depressed when I heard that Illusione will not be imported to Europe, the only time I got to smoke one it was a CG4 White Horse and I absolutely loved it!
Nice review Mikey. I’ve had a few sitting in the humidor now for a few months but haven’t lit them up. Can’t wait now. Have fun at cigar fest
Great review Mike. I agree with you. I think it’s a lot stronger then Dion says 🙂 I’d put it above the Epernay. Maybe becuase it’s smooth he states it’s milder. Not sure?
Nice review! You’ve come a long way in your review style, Mike (please take that as a compliment, lol).
I’ve only had one of these, but I too didn’t find it “mild,” easily into the medium range, probably just under the Epernay for me (in terms of strength).
Flavor-wise, I LOVED this thing. It had a unique flavor profile, and I liked it. I’m still trying to decide whether I need to find a box, as I only have 4 left.
