Smoking in Summer Style Cigar Review – Ashton Heritage By: Tyler

Summer is still smoking and so am I! This afternoon I am welcoming the weekend to start off right with a smokey stick of mine straight from my personal humidor – the ever impressive, Ashton Heritage cigar!

I had to take a pic before I started smoking this because I knew I’d be all fun and no work once I got into this cigar. And your eyes don’t deceive you – as before you, a gorgeous, chocolaty Ecuador Habano wrapper hugs a scrumptious bouquet of aged Dominican binder and filler tobaccos.

I haven’t been aging this one in my personal humidor for too long (less than a year) but even so the flavors are enchantingly rich and earthy with subtle traces of caramel and almonds. The flavor of the natural tobacco from the sun grown varietal is pleasantly apparent throughout the length of the stick as well.

I’ve always been a fan of this stick because it offers a medium strength smoke without compromising any complexity. Cheers to you smoking an Ashton Heritage cigar this weekend as well. And if you don’t have any aging yet, pick up a box or two and start today!

Mid Week Back Porch Review – My Father La Promesa By: Mefford

The mid-week hump is here to get over so to see me through I’m reaching for a beautifully crafted My Father La Promesa cigar. I’ve got some time before the summer rains hit and the steaks are done on the barbeque so I’m lighting this one up right now!


The My Father La Promesa is a true My Father stick as it starts with a decided peppery presence. But just at the start, and not too much. This My Father line isn’t just a manliness test – its a flavor bomb. The Pepper backs off before too long to showcase the wide mix of flavors ranging from tobacco sweetness and leather and nuts!

With an oily Ecuadorian Habano wrapper and Nicaraguan binder and filler, this stick offers up a medium bold strength. I enjoyed smoking the Corona size, but about halfway through I realized next time I’d probably upgrade to the larger Toro size. There’s just so much good stuff that I don’t want to have to stop smoking!

I think the name of this line is just perfect because it delivers what it promises. I’ve promised myself that I’ll put a box of the My Father La Promesa Toro into my humidor this week – you should too!

Cigar That Pairs Best with A/C Review by Tyler: My Father Flor de las Antillas TAA Lancero

A pairing even more essential than my favorite refreshing ice cold beverage, is a great stick like the My Father Flor de las Antillas TAA Lancero and my well ventilated, air conditioned smoking room. When Summer sticks around too long, a smoke like this can make me forget!


The Flor de las Antillas is a Nicaraguan puro (my fav!) with a Sun Grown wrapper leaf that sports a pigtail head and a ribbon (emblazoned with “TAA”) on the foot. Lanceros have long been a special treat for me and the wonderfully rated FdlA came well recognized.

The stick’s flavors opened up with sweet dark fruit riding over layers of earth and grassiness. The finish had a moderate cayenne pepper heat, which showed up in a larger way on the retrohale! Notes of woodiness and pepper arrive to stay at the second and last thirds.

I’m glad that the TAA got this release and gladder still that my local online shop has some to pick up. Make your own pairing this summer and pick up a box of My Father Flor de las Antillas TAA Lancero for yourself today!

End of Summer Cigar Review By Mefford – AVO Regional East Edition Perfecto

Summer is almost over and I’m checking things off my to-do list. One of my favorite things is to smoke something new that I haven’t tried before. The AVO Regional East Edition Perfecto presented itself as the perfect stick so I could strike that particularly pleasant task off my list!


AVO has made something different and unique for us here. Once I had my first, I knew these would go quick so I am storing up quite a few in my personal humidor – some for now, and some for later! Perfectos got their name fair and square; a perfect shape! The carmel, coffee and cedar notes make themselves over the first third. The stick itself gives off plenty of smoke so over the course of the Perfecto, it makes for a really relaxing smoke. The Dominican & Nicaraguan binder and fillers make this Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapped cigar an approachable medium body.

If you haven’t already picked up a box of the AVO Regional East Edition Perfecto for your end of summer smoke, you should buy today!
