Cigar Review | Acid Kuba Kuba

acid kuba kuba boxTwo of my friends and I drove down to Key West last weekend and enjoyed some great Acid Kuba Kuba Cigars.

We woke up at the crack of dawn, got our backpacks and hopped into my friend’s Jeep Wrangler. The morning was hot but the gentle wind from the road while riding with the top down made it really enjoyable.  What a scenic three-hour drive; we saw mangroves and beaches as we went from key to key on man-made bridges.

On our way we stopped at a beautiful beach in Bahia Honda Key called Sandspur Beach.  The beach was very secluded and the atmosphere was extremely laid back and relaxing.  The small waves crashing into the white sand produced the most relaxing sounds, which made us not want to leave.

We decided to take our stuff down to the beach and spent a few hours relaxing in the sand.  We set our towels and our cooler right off the water, and unwound while enjoying some cold beers.  To make it even better I had a box of Acid Kuba Kuba Cigars for us to enjoy.  I was saving them for a special occasion but what better occasion than this.

I opened the box and immediately we could smell the captivating aroma.  The friendly sales rep from Gotham Cigars had told me Acid Kuba Kuba Cigars were the most aromatic of the Acid Cigars and among the most flavorful, and boy was she right!

Characteristics of Acid Kuba Kuba Cigars

Wrapped in a dark, oily, and virtually seamless Sumatra wrapper the Acid Kuba Kuba Cigars produced a mellow rich flavor and sweet taste.  Ringed in metallic blue, this cigar has the perfect combination of the finest mild cigar tobaccos deliciously infused with all natural herbs, essential oils, and a touch of floral botanicals.

The cigar smoked perfect.  This robusto-sized cigar is a medium-bodied smoke that is not too light and not too strong. It’s just right!

The only bad part about it was when it was over.  We suddenly realized we had spent almost four hours just laying there enjoying our conversation and smoking those fantastic cigars. But we needed to go; we stilled had a long way to get to Key West.  I must admit, it was a bit painful leaving that beach spot and getting back in the Jeep.

When we got to Key West we went to a acid kuab kubabar and had an awesome lunch.  Overall the road trip was a success; we enjoyed the beach, the food, and a fantastic cigar.  I would recommend Acid Kuba Kuba Cigars to those seeking total relaxation from the daily rigors of life.

Cigar Review | Avo Cigars No.2 Cigar

avo cigars no.2I’m not a cigar expert, but I know when I get my hands on something good, and this weekend I definitely had one of the best cigars I’ve had in a while.

It was my birthday, I was turning 41 and we had a few friends over to celebrate. We had music, food, and drinks. Everyone was having a good old time sharing stories, laughing at stupid jokes, and just talking about our youth when suddenly my wife surprised me with an amazing gift.

It was a box of Avo Cigars No. 2. As soon as I saw that little wooden box I couldn’t have been more excited. You can imagine the look on my friends’ faces when they saw it. All of their mouths watering, each just dying to have one.

I couldn’t resist; I immediately open the box and took in the pleasant aroma. I must say, I have to give credit to Mr. Uvezian for such a wonderful creation. The quality of the packaging and the product within was simply outstanding. The cigars were recommended to my wife by a coworker who usually smokes Avo Classic Cigars as a special treat that he purchase from Gotham Cigars. He explained to her all about these handmade Dominican cigars and how they were so enticing.

Characteristics of Avo Cigars No.2

As we were celebrating I couldn’t think of a better way to thank my friends and family than by sharing these great cigars with them. We moved to the balcony with our scotch on the rocks in hands; the perfect complement to our Avo cigars. We lit the cigars up and they smoked perfect. These Avo Cigars No. 2 produced a creamy white smoke with an aroma that I could even sense outdoors. They smelled great, even my non-cigar smoking friends complimented their smell.

The taste was wonderful; it was a smooth creamy taste, very mild, with a touch of coffee, hazelnuts, and a hint of pepper. A puff followed by a sip of scotch was just amazing. My buddy, a seasoned cigar smoker who usually smokes Avo Cigars XO Maestoso which is more of a medium-bodied cigar really enjoyed it and commented on the taste.

The flavor was so delicate and sophisticated; these Avo Cigars are a complete work of art. For beginning smokers I would highly recommend Avo Cigars because they are very subtle with a good draw, taste, and burn.avo cigars

As the evening progressed we relaxed with these slow burning cigars and took in the nice Downtown view from my balcony. It was an amazing night overall; I mean how often do you get to smoke quality cigars with good friends on such a special occasion.
