One man's journey through the world of premium cigars. I prefer medium to strong cigars with lots of body and flavor. Not so much a fan of mild.

Review of Nestor Miranda Collection Dominicano Rosado Piramide
Pleasantly surprised by the Nestor Miranda Dominican Rosado Piramide (torpedo). Perfect draw, substantial smoke production and a nice woody character with a dash of molasses sweetness. Burned well throughout, with no touch-up required, and the flavor was consistent with no bitter notes or souring until after the 2/3 mark. This cigar is not as intense as the Nestor Miranda special selections, nor does it develop or change, but it is rich and full bodied. A very good corojo cigar, especially if you can win a bundle for under $30 on the bidding sites, which I was fortunate enough to do.
A guy who started smoking cigars and realized it is one of life's most pleasurable, complex and obsessive undertakings, and that everything about cigars mirrors the vast plenitude of human experience and indeed the universe itself. See how I got this way. See where it's leading. Hope for the best.
