History of cigars

We review a variety of snuffs, from the very light and fine (such as Irish “D” Light) to dark, coarse and moist (such as our world renowned Kendal Brown, or K.B.), perfumed, or mentholated, or plain old “tobacco-ey”, enough to suit most tastes!

Here is a grid to give you some idea of cigars we usually review :
