Plantation Reserve Churchill Cigar Review

September 27, 2010

Binder: Dominican Republic
Wrapper: Connecticut Shade Wrapper
Tobacco:  Dominican, Honduran, Nicaraguan
Length: 7 1/4
Ring Gauge: 50
 
As far as cigars, you have smokers who will vehemently stick to their one or two brands and then you have smokers who will try a little bit of everything in search of the perfect smoke. I am proud to say I fall into the latter. Recently a good friend of mine visited the Cigar Factory in New Orleans and gifted me with some Plantation Reserves.
 
For those who aren’t familiar with this line (including me), Cigar Factory is located in the French Quarter and is the place to go to for all lovers of the leaf while in the Big Easy. At any given moment they might have four or five Torcedores (cigar rollers) working on creating quality smokes.
 
Upon first inspection, this is an average looking cigar. The wrapper has some veins and the seams aren’t perfect. This Churchill has a very firm feel from top to bottom. Additional the label is cut a little funny. Nevertheless I was excited to get going with this smoke as a I got a mellow spice from the pre light draw.
 
After toasting the foot, I can tell I am going to really enjoy this Plantation Reserve. I am getting a creamy buttery taste which I am in love with. The draw is great too. I am getting an ample amount of smoke and the burn line is pretty much stable. The ash is a pale grey and is very tight and is holding on strong.
 
Ten minutes into this smoke we are still in a nice mild body zone but I am getting a small kick of spice now which I have no problem with. The creamy flavor is heavier as it is coating my tongue after every exhale of smoke. So far I am very impressed with this Plantation Reserve.
 
If I were a coffee drinker this cigar would be a good complement.

With enjoying premium cigars comes an accompanying lifestyle. The lingo, the places, the people, and the love for the finer things in life. One of those things in my opinion would be Prometheus lighters.

Each entry into this section is a piece of audio that I always treasured. My first two entries were long-lost Nas Mixtapes that I had been looking for some time.

Veuve Clicquot La Grand Dame Vintage 1996 Brut Champagne

September 15, 2010

I love champagne; simple as that. While I do favor Dom Perignon, there are some respectable bottles out there that are worth your time and more importantly your money.

In the late 1990’s, Vueve Clicquot started overtaking Moet as New York’s preferred bubbly. What many individuals don’t know is that Vueve Clicquot produces a great prestige cuvee called La Grande Dame.

Ralph Lauren Fall / Winter 2010 Preview

September 14, 2010

   

As a man it’s hard not to appreciate Ralph Lauren clothing. The brand speaks to a certain lifestyle that we all aspire to achieve and more importantly maintain. As a youth I used to wear a lot of Ralph Lauren to the point where people thought I was obsessed.  

Now years later Ralph Lauren has made a big comeback within New York City teen culture and I wanted to showcase some pieces from his Fall / Winter 2010 collection that are not so logo heavy.
