New Stock at Got Cigars? in Decatur, Georgia

Over the last few weeks we’ve picked up some new stock. Some of the new cigars include:

Rocky Patel San Andreas – a robust, full bodied cigar deserving of a review all on its own. Coming soon (the review, not the cigar!)

Last Call by AJ Fernandez – a 45 minute smoke designed to win the night. Semi-sweet flavors mixed with light wood and a great draw provide the way for closing time.

Last Call Maduro by AJ Fernandez – the same as above, but with added sweetness.

Avo South American

Avo Nicaragua Syncro South American Ritmo

Syncro Ritmo – an earthy, but complex cigar, only we have them in the Robusto sized, as well as the torpedo largo.  The box press only adds to the classy feel of this amazing cigar.

Brick House and Brick House Maduro – both are outstanding, inexpensive value cigars from JC Newman, but don’t let the word “value” fool you.  This cigar is medium to full bodied, and in the natural, has a decent amount of wood and earth, while the maduro picks up with some spice and sweetness.

CIGAR REVIEW – Tatuaje Drac

This limited release cigar only comes to a select number of tobacconists in the country and Grants in San Francisco was on their list this year.

The folks at Grants planned a little release party complete with mimosas, beer and those nasty vodka and tomato drinks I can’t understand, along with sample packs (for sale) of various Tatuaje cigars, including the Boris and the Drac.

Dave convinced me to try the Drac and so at $15 a pop, I gave it a whirl. Clipped the torpedo end, looked it over and found nice construction. A dark maduro wrapper with Nicaraguan filler lent a mellow earthiness with a rich flavor I couldn’t place but enjoyed for almost 2 hours over good conversation. The cigar had a slightly tough draw but the flavor profile made up for it. The burn was even, smoke not a lot, but a white.

I followed that up with a Brickhouse, a new cigar released by the JC Newman folks (favorite of mine) that had a Honduran wrapper and a Nicaraguan filler. Pleasant spices completed with a smoothness for those accustomed to JC Newman’s usual brands (Cuesta Rey, Diamond Crown) and a pleasing taste with a lingering finish.

Both cigars complemented each other as one didn’t overpower the other as in the case of smoking a Padron and an ambos mundos (made by the Tatuaje people)
