Chris finds that Eagle Modern is the perfect summer blend for those long hot August days. Mild, smooth, & with a hint of sweetness, it’s a very cool burning blend that is also perfect for breaking in a brand new pipe.

He also thinks that the Dunhill Signed Range Seleccion Suprema is an amazing cigar that not enough people have tried. Rich & complex with a medium body, these are cigars that are in short supply as Dunhill cigars are not currently being made. Come on down to try some while you can!

Aaron really enjoys spending time in nature & the mountains. He finds that Aspen Stroll is a great accompaniment for these times, as the notes of mint & chocolate mingle well with the wonderful scents of the forest.

Sadly, one of his favourite cigars in the Por Larranaga Picadores will soon be coming to an end (don’t worry as we still have some stock) as the Cubans prepare for plain packaging legislation that comes into effect on cigars this November. These are a milder cigar for a Cuban, yet they pack a ton of flavour and satisfy every checkbox that he desires.

 

Stephen

Stephen suggests that you do like him and kick back during the NHL playoffs with a Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No. 2. This classic Cuban robusto pulls a McDavid; consistent & powerful yet with some nuance & grace. It scores for him every time just like his favourite hockey team, the Oilers!

He also suggest that a great way to cool off during the summer heat is to take a trip down the Smokey River. This burley-blend is smooth with a hint of chocolate & smoke, so it should help keep away those biting insects while you float on by.

Anna

We now have the Villiger Classic Cuban Filler Maduro in stock! This box-pressed cheroot is a mild but with a smooth & rich flavour profile that has hints of cocoa, hazelnut, & coffee. Anna finds this a great & inexpensive puff!

She also recommends you try Nirvana. This smooth Burley/Cavendish blend is slightly sweet with a pleasant balance of berries & spice. May you reach Nirvana while smoking a bowl of it!
