Hi there! Welcome back to Smoking Jacket Blog. I know I’ve been absent for a few days, but that’s only because I was waiting for orders to come in. My orders from all over the U.S., The UK, and even Indonesia are beginning to come in, and I will be doing reviews as they arrive.
This morning, my order from Thompson Cigar Company arrived with a 15 cigar sampler that I ordered, and a 5 cigar “Shameless Bribe Package” that I was able to divide up with my wife, and my life partner leaving me eight cigars to review.
So, I will be giving you a bunch of cigar reviews over the next little while.
Though I’m not sure of what order I will be doing the reviews in, of the eight cigars I have to review are;
Cohiba La Línea Clásica Robusto
Rocky Patel Autumn Collection 2008 Churchill Connecticut
Alec Bradley Prensado Robusto Corojo
Macanudo Especiale Torpedo Habano
Pinar Del Rio 1878 Reserva Dominicana Toro Oscuro
Tres Ligas By Pinar Del Rio Toro Maduro
E.P. Carrillo Cardinal Series 52 Natural Robusto
And for the average Joe, who can’t afford to spend 6 to 10 dollars on a cigar, I have a Pinar Del Rio Value Line Reserve Toro Habano.
Also, over the next few days my tobacco order from smokingpipes.com will arrive with eight tins of tobacco in it, so I will be doing tobacco reviews for pipe tobacco as well over this time. The tobaccos I have to review from smokingpipes.com are;
Wessex Brigade Classic Virginia with Perique
Peterson Special 2013 Reserve
Rattray’s Hal O’ the Wynd
McClelland Tinned: Collector: 3 Oaks Original
McClelland Tinned: Collector: 3 Oaks Syrian
McClelland Tinned: Personal Reserve: Blackwoods Flake
McClelland Tinned: Special: Holiday Spirit 2013.
I also have a tobacco order arriving this week from Tewksbury and Company. And if you live under rock and can’t figure out what I would order from them, it’s 4 ounces of the Hobbit Weed. I’m certainly looking forward to that.
Then, sometime around Christmas my order from Glynn Quelch at GQTobaccos in Great Britain will arrive with eight or nine house blends from his most popular series of tobacco.
Finally, around the New Year, I will receive my order from Zippo Warung in Indonesia will arrive with six different blends of Indonesian tobacco, and a pack of Indonesian Kretek which will probably carry me well into February.
So keep your eyes open, and feel free to drop me a line if you have any requests.
Smoke ‘em if you got ‘em!
