About me

I have been smoking cigars since 2009, and I am still a cigar review amateur.  However, I love trying as many new cigars as I can, and reading what other people think about cigars that I have smoked.

My favorite kinds of cigars are medium bodied ones  that are packed with flavor.

Avo Limited Edition 2011 85th Anniv, Diadema (Perfecto)

After all these years, this smoke held up really well. Very smooth draw, almost perfect burn, nice peppery flavor. Superb.
