    Well I was wrong.

    John, I had a very disturbing exchange with Brian months prior to his passing. I will not sully a deadman's name but suffice it to say that when I offered to send him my remaining AVO22s, he declined. He closed the door on any chance that I could make it right for him. He did not pass it on...

    Well I was wrong.

    I've received Bill's address from Rod. I've asked Rod to receive my cigars, and then relay them on to him. Rod has agreed. That way, Rod knows what I sent. And frankly, it's come down to this. I don't trust Bill. Isn't that sad what this has come down to? The biggest, most vindictive...

    La Riqueza #4

    Very fine review! An excellent effort indeed. I've smoked but one of these and I was not impressed. Luckily the local carries these so I might give them a try again. BTW, would you elaborate on the difference between flavor and taste? Wilkey

    Padron 1964 Aniversario/Anniversary

    This is truly a benchmark review that documents the performance of very early release and high age Padron Aniversarios. Well done on submitting such an important review. I've not smoked any Anni's with quite this much age but I do have one or two soldiers left from the late 1990s. When they're...
