In this episode of Herfin’ Heads, Brian and Ben take a look at two things named “Señor Rio Añejo”- a cigar and a tequila. Spoiler, we like one of them a lot more than the other. To find out which, you’ll have to watch the video below.
Note: It’s the Herfin’ Heads they didn’t want you to see. And by “they” I mean Skype, my video editing software and my computer. All of them suffered some sort of terrible failure on the road to publishing. Also the Bilderbergers and Burgerbuilders, they know what they did. Seriously though, some evil technical gremlins chewed up a good deal of the audio and video. Fortunately, it was mostly the non-essential (albeit comical) banter midway through the smoke. For your viewing comfort I’ve edited out the worst of it, leaving a very lean, efficient and muscular review in it’s place.

Hey guys, great review. I was sent one by Tony C. to try out and possibly review, and I have to say, I was disappointed by it. Of course, he didn’t send me any of that $80 tequila to go with it, lol. I guess the Fremont Abominable Winter Ale I had with it isn’t as custom made for it (or vice versa). BTW, the cigar is made by AJ Fernandez, and I was really looking forward to trying it, but it just didn’t do it for me. The strength to flavor ratio was off the charts, and I wound up putting it down with about 2-1/2″ to go. Maybe it was the inevitable dud, but now I’m wondering. The tequila (and the cigars) are available mainly through Total Wine & More stores. And, yeah, I would love to try the tequila if I could afford it. 🙂
Thanks for the info. I didn’t realize it was an AJ Fernandez-made cigar, but I can kinda see that now. I think the consensus is it’s a little rough early on, but it gets better in the later half. And it’s a much better smoke with the tequila, that much is certain. (I’ll have to hit up Total Wine to see if I can find it.)
One cigar I’d like to see reviewed in an episode of herfin heads is the undercrown if it hasn’t already been done. Please and thanks
Thanks for the request. We have touched on the Undercrown, but not in the Herfin’ Heads format. Keep watching, we may just do that.
