Cigars

Cigars I’m currently smoking… Photos of the cigars I’m smoking can be found on Instagram.com, using the #GoPuffBR hashtag. – http://instagram.com/explore/tags/gopuffbr

Some of my favorite cigar pairings are: Coffee w/cream, Bourbon, Scotch, Ginger Ale, Coca Cola Soda, Sweet Dark Rum. Also, I’m a fan of any tropical mixed drinks with a cigar. HOWEVER, My all-time favorite is good coffee/espresso.

My Enjoyment Scale:
0 = Don’t Smoke
5 = Good not great
10 = Absolutely Fabulous


Padron 2000 Natural
Notes: This is one of my all-time favorite cigars. Great construction, smoke output, value, and flavor. Consistent all the way through the smoke. Notes of vanilla, cream, leather, and smooth sweetness. This is definitely my go-to favorite cigar. It is also my “current” reference cigar…
Enjoyment Scale: 10


E.P. Carrillo Pledge
Notes: Great construction, copious amounts of smoke… Hints of chocolate, leather. A good cigar; however, I’d prefer my old faithful “Padron 2000 Natural.
Enjoyment Scale: 6


Montecristo Epic Vintage 12
Notes: Didn’t really enjoy it until the final 3rd. Not bad….but found it lacking something. Pepper, spice, mineral notes. Best paired with rum, bourbon, or scotch.
Enjoyment Scale: 6


My Father Le Bijou 1922

Olivia Serie V Melanio
Notes: Fantastic Smoke Output… Lots of flavor and fantastic build quality. Hints of leather, chocolate, pepper, and caramel. This is a great cigar—-but, I’ve never had a bad Olivia cigar. This cigar is rich and full of flavor….but not overwhelming.
