  2. Perdomo Reserve 10th Anniversary Maduro Epicure

  3. Ponce Robusto Extra

  4. Wynwood Hills Mayhem

Now for a little about each cigar from the Hemingway team!


MoyaRuiz La Jugada Prieto Toro

A very old classic for long-term customers of The Cigar Merchant

It is fair to say the MoyaRuiz La Jugada Habano and Prieto were absolute standouts about 8 years ago; then sadly they just disappeared.

Danny and Nelson finally made it back and re-released their once famous blend; perfected and rolled at the La Zona factory by Erik Espinosa of course.

We've had these sitting in the humidor for exactly one year, enjoy!


Perdomo Reserve 10th Anniversary Maduro Epicure

One HEMINGWAY member had the balls to say to me "shocked at how nice those Perdomo's are"

Everyone has a chance to be a comedian I guess; the Perdomo Reserve 10th Anniversary Maduro is a damn fine cigar; damn fine indeed!

Using Cuban-seed Nicaraguan Maduro wrapper that brings a complex flavour profile; these are well-aged maduro's that are very tasty.


Ponce Robusto Extra

The jewel of the bunch

Sometimes you just take a punt and not often are you rewarded with such an outstanding result.

Ponce was probably the last "named" cigar I'd be running off to buy, but after chatting with the brand owner Frank and getting to understand his passion for tobacco; I took a punt.

Damn I am soo glad I did!

Silky smooth Mexican San Andres wrapper over Connecticut Broadleaf binder encasing Dominican, Nicaraguan and Pennsylvanian long filler tobaccos - an absolute dream of a cigar!


Wynwood Hills Mayhem (C.L.E.)

The second of the three Wynwood Hills releases

Medium-bodied this time around and sporting a Honduran Corojo wrapper; this Rothschild is a tasty afternoon cigar.

Part two of the three-part Wynwood Hills range of cigars from C.L.E. and created of course by the Master Christian Eiroa.



Enjoy your read with a good cigar.
