Lone Wolf Lobo Rojo (First Impressions)

Better late than never, right? Tuesday is my day ’round these parts at the Stogie Review, and I like to have things set up so that my post goes live right at midnight, but here I am scrambling late on a Tuesday afternoon. Sorry everybody! It’s been a few weeks since I last uploaded a video, but I’ve been out-of-my-mind busy lately. I was out in LA just after Thanksgiving for a job interview, and while I was there, I checked out a few local B&M cigar shops. David from Lone Wolf Cigars in Santa Monica was kind enough to gift me a sample stick of the Lobo Rojo lancero in order to find out what I thought of it.

I honestly had never heard of the Lone Wolf brand before. It’s a retail shop and line of cigars which was apparently founded by none other than Chuck Norris and Jim Belushi during the mid-90s cigar boom. They have several different cigar lines, the newest of which (circa 2006?) being the Lobo Rojo. I really didn’t know what to expect before smoking this cigar, so I basically went into this first impressions video completely blind.

All in all, I’d say the Lone Wolf Lobo Rojo was a decent medium-bodied smoke. While I wouldn’t necessarily rush out to track down a full box, I’d absolutely smoke one again given the opportunity. I’d certainly make sure to keep one lit if I knew I was going to run into Chuck Norris… not out of fear of receiving a roundhouse kick from a 71-year old man, but simply as a conversation starter.

  1. Congrats on the the new job and future addition! A buddy of mine works at Booz Allen…
    I enjoyed your casual review of the Lone Wolf. I’m surprised that they still make them. Happy Holidays and good luck with the new job!

  2. Very jealous of your cigar finds! Not that this is a diamond in the rough but in the time you’ve been here you’ve opened my eyes to a few cigars I’ve never heard of. Thanks for the review! I know done guys are sick and holidays make everyone busy but it’s nice to watch a review finally!
    Thanks!

  3. Congratulations on the job! These have been around for a while. I have tried them and was not impressed. I have read that the stick is about $10 overpriced due to the share that has to go to Chuck and Jim. Great review as always and once again congrats on the new job.

  4. Great review – loved it. How did you find smoking the Cigar while holding it using the gloves? Dexterity towards the final third must have been a little awkward.
