Hemingway - March 2022

Each month we receive a selection of the best, hand chosen, cigars delivered to our door via Hemingway. This is what we got this month!


 

Alec Bradley Filthy Hooligan Toro (2021)


Origin: Honduras (Plasencia) Wrapper: Barber pole (Candela & Jalapa) Binder: Ecuadorian Sumatra Filler: Honduran & Panamaniam longfiller tobaccos

This is a seasonal release of the Filthy Hooligan to celebrate St. Paddy's Day - these however were the 2021 release (which were rolled in 2020).

Medium-bodied that always pairs perfectly with a Guinness!

 

Crowned Heads Las Calaveras Edicion Limitada Toro (2021)

Origin: Nicaragua (My Father Cigars) Wrapper: Ecuadorian Sumatra-seed Colorado maduro Binder: Nicaraguan Filler: Nicaraguan

For the first time since 2014, Crowned Heads moved production of the Las Calaveras away from E.P. Carrillo to My Father Cigars.

However, in my opinion no Las Calaveras has yet lived up to the original 2014 blend - that was one hell of amazing cigar!

 

Punch Limited Edition Kung Pow (2021)


Origin: Honduras Wrapper: USA Connecticut Broadleaf maduro Binder: Honduran Filler: Brazilian, Dominican Republic, Honduran & Mexican

The 2021 Limited Edition from Punch, wrapped in an oily USA Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper - a very tasty and satisfying cigar.

The sweet profile comes from a global smorgasbord of tobaccos.

 

Room 101/Pospiech Who Shot Ya Torpedo


Origin: undisclosed Wrapper: undisclosed Binder: undisclosed Filler: undisclosed

If you haven't smoked this one yet, then you are in for an absolute treat - a damn strong; but well-balanced little Torpedo.

Pospiech (Powstanie) haven't disclosed any info about the blend; but I've smoked a few - they're damn good!


 

Rocky Patel Liberation Corona Gorda (2021)


Origin: Nicaraguan (Rocky Patel) Wrapper: Ecuadorian Habano Binder: Nicaraguan Filler: Honduran & Nicaraguan

A unique cigar from Hamlet Paredes and Rocky Patel with a tapered head and shaggy foot; these cigars arrived to us in 2021 so have loads of age on them.

Hamlet is renowned for his free-style cigar rolling; whereby he doesn't use a traditional mould to form/shape his cigars.
