I mentioned in a previous post that these cigars came my way from the HPSF Traveling humidor: Dominican Sweets – Back in the day, I use to smoke packs of Backwoods cigars that were vanilla flavored. It’s been a couple years since I’ve tried any kind of flavored cigar. I went in with an open […]

Wonderful documentary about the history of the Cuban Cigar. I’ve seen this a few dozen times (Netflix has it) and each time I learn something new about not only Cuban cigars but cigars in general.
