Kaplowitz Media Best of Cigars Made in the USA or Employing US Leaf, or: Election Day Patriotic Cigar List

"Only Kaplowitz."


& (once again) fuck if the (purposefully long clumsy) title of the post don't say it all. List is in no particular order. Titles are links to full reviews, as the below are merely excerpts of such. thx

Bespoke Cigars Gran Mareva: Verily a brightly complex thing, this. Balanced supremely-so and ending in a sweet floral finish with surprisingly long legs. ...

Gran Habano STK Zulu Zulu Black Wait, so you're telling me the "White" blend is stronger than the "Black" one? Does Louis Farrakhan know about this horseshit??? ...

Flor de America Connecticut: Serviceable stogie to the point of pleasant surprise. Creaminess over-top a bit of rawness. Overtones of sweet softwood and toasty spice (nutmeg front). ...

Herrera Esteli Miami Edition: Well-balanced with a sweetly spiced fore-front offering a nice tongue-tingle cushioned in creaminess. Quite-nice depth of nuance and whilst not transitional, of satisfying complexities. ...

Martinez Cigars New York City Blend: Gentlepersons, I doth taste the most mythical of all cigar reviewer flavor notes mishegas -- PENCIL LEAD!!! I never hath felt more legit. I feel like I do when I spot a dwarf in the wilds of say aisle 8 of Albertons; like I'm about to have a very good run a' luck. ...


Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial: Double/triple puffing a sixty is positively laborious. Hats off to the gold diggers out there -- no, I won't 'splain -- too layered. ...

Flatbed Panacea Green Label: A Toro Gordo, supremely built and performing. Full-flavored notes of chocolate and black pepper'd mesquite over a manure under-belly, with myriad sweet spicy complexities twixt. ...

Rocky Patel Sun Grown Maduro: Once toasted and torched, there is a prominent chocolate mousse. Strong yet refined and refrained spice mix of red stuffs with a nutmeg and cinnamon jockeying for that lead. Ginger is a close 'un. Syrupy red to purple fruits and liltings of hibiscus. ...

Dunbarton T&T Sobremesa: Mace and nutmeg get a cardamom finish all their own. I particularly get this effect off a retro-hale, which I've been doing more oft than not. Layers of chocolate and cedar are found there as well. ...

Florida Sun Grown (FSG): Front-loaded with peppercorn and cayenne through the first-inch. Espresso bean. Black walnut and cherry. Prunes and a wood array which picks up char in final-third. ...
