Pond Fishing Sessions: Aganorsa Leaf Guardian of the Farm Cerberus Gran Robusto

Pond Fishing Sessions: Aganorsa Leaf Guardian of the Farm Cerberus Gran Robusto

I am not much for fishing, which is a shame since our one pasture has a ¾ acre pond with plenty of bass and bluegills. However, I do get the itch a few times a year to go out on a nice day and try my luck. Today is a very nice day, besides some fairly gusty winds, so I decided to grab a cigar and my rod. I am lighting up the Aganorsa Leaf Guardian of the Farm Cerberus Gran Robusto. This 2022 release is an extension of the Guardian of the Farm line and utilizes the newer Corojo...

Woodworking Sessions: Espinosa Cigars 601 La Bomba Warhead VII

Woodworking Sessions: Espinosa Cigars 601 La Bomba Warhead VII

I’m back in the garage on a woodworking project after a couple month hiatus. I decided to get back on this guitar body ashtray. Once I got the grain filler on and I had to wait for it to dry, I hopped over onto my Stratocaster that I’ve been meaning to finish refretting. For this session I grabbed the 601 La Bomba Warhead VII from Espinosa Cigars. This is the first Warhead I have tried. The idea behind the project is to release a strong, limited blend under the 601 La Bomba line, which is already touted as a strong...

From the Vault: 2014 Tatuaje La Riqueza No. 7

From the Vault: 2014 Tatuaje La Riqueza No. 7

In 2008 Tatuaje Cigars released the La Riqueza line. After 9 years, and 13 vitolas, the line was removed from their price list, though not completely discontinued. In March of 2022 Tatuaje released a new vitola, and slightly tweaked blend, of this cigar under the name La Riqueza SE. I have seen that cigar getting plenty of hype, and I guess it was stuck in my mind when I grabbed my cigar for review today. I dug up a 2014 La Riqueza No. 7 I had in my humidor. I actually stumbled upon some of these that were buried in...

Illusione Cigars SSR Review

Illusione Cigars SSR Review

Today’s review is a bit unconventional in that I have limited details on this cigar. I am smoking the Illusione Cigars SSR. This Rothchilde is a new blend from Illuisone that is only available at retail shops that hold events. I picked this cigar up at a shop and cannot seem to recall the price, but I think it was around $6ish maybe? As for the country of origin, factory, and blend, I can’t confirm any of it. I was told that the cigar has Corojo 2012 Viso, but I do not know what portion of the blend that is....

Luthier Sessions: Apostate Cigars The Liahona

Luthier Sessions: Apostate Cigars The Liahona

I’ve been meaning to replace the nut on my FeatherFoot guitar. I have just been putting it off for awhile for fear that I wouldn’t have a chance to finish when I started. However, I finally went ahead and got some String Joy strings I’ve been wanting to try and while I’m changing strings, I might as well make and install the new bone nut.  I grabbed an Apostate Cigars The Liahona to smoke while I worked on this job. This is the last of the three initial blends from Apostate that I need to review. I have been very...
