Week in Review - through March 4th, 2012

Here is the week in review from Kollarism and myself over at The Cigar Broskies:

We took a look at CigarFest, and asked whether or not Cigars International is making big profits on it - http://thecigarbroskies.blogspot.com/2012/02/cigar-fest-is-cigars-international.html

The Savinelli 2006 Special Selection scored a 90, which seems to be par for the course for Savinelli cigars - http://thecigarbroskies.blogspot.com/2012/02/savinelli-2006-special-selection.html

The Man O War Ruination also scored a 90, matching the Savinelli - http://thecigarbroskies.blogspot.com/2012/02/man-o-war-ruination.html

The Graycliff Double Espresso was a hard hitter in its flavor, but fell a little short on its higher price - http://thecigarbroskies.blogspot.com/2012/02/graycliff-double-expresso.html

Another Savinelli offering, the Dos Campeones Coraje, took home a respectable 87 - http://thecigarbroskies.blogspot.com/2012/02/savinelli-dos-campeones-coraje-review.html

Victor Sinclair’s Vintage Select, while cheaper in price, was lacking in a lot of other areas, only scoring a 62 - http://thecigarbroskies.blogspot.com/2012/02/victor-sinclair-vintage-select-review.html

Casa Magna’s offering, the Domus Magnus, was good enough to really think on buying an entire box, scoring one of the top honors of the week with a 93 - http://thecigarbroskies.blogspot.com/2012/03/casa-magan-domus-magnus.html

The Garo Double Habano, a cigar that will likely fly under the radar, scored an 85 as a cheap everyday sort of cigar - http://thecigarbroskies.blogspot.com/2012/03/garo-double-habano.html

Ashton’s VSG hit a 92 rating, with solid scores all around - http://thecigarbroskies.blogspot.com/2012/03/ashton-vsg.html

The Gurkha Centurian asked if the cigar really is worth the full $30 MSRP that it has tagged to it. With a score of a 61, its safe to say it falls short - http://thecigarbroskies.blogspot.com/2012/03/gurkha-centurian-review.html

The Obsidian, by virtue of a solid showing and reasonable price, managed an 88 - http://thecigarbroskies.blogspot.com/2012/03/obsidian.html

The EP Carrillo Elencos, sporting the same blend that allowed it to be the #8 cigar of the year in 2010, took top honors of the week, scoring a whopping 95. http://thecigarbroskies.blogspot.com/2012/03/ep-carrillo-elencos-review.html

The dogrocket of the week award goes to the Indian Tabac Classic Corojo, which scored an abysmal 28. Terrible flavor and construction really did this one in. http://thecigarbroskies.blogspot.com/2012/02/indian-tabac-classic-corojo-review.html



Hope you all are enjoying reading. Comments, suggestions, etc are always welcome.
