Cigars


Trinidad Reyes - A very elegant cigar, mild-medium in body with complex, quite mellow flavors. Un-lit it has a slightly caramel aroma which can be tasted in the smoke also. Very smooth, sweet pepper, coffee and that caramel undertones throughout. Smokes all the way to the end without becoming charred renowned for an even burn throughout.

Hoyo de Monterrey DM Epicure Especiales (LE 2004) - Impressive to the eye - flawless, silky and oily wrapper. Upon lighting, there is an explosion of tastes. Very woody in the first half accompanied by roasted nut and spices. It mellows out in the second half where flavors of coffee, vanilla, cocoa and a hint of liquorices presents.
