October is known primarily for one thing in the cigar world; a highly anticipated release from Tatuaje and Pete Johnson. True to form Pete Johnson has another October release slated for 2020. This years release called the Karloff is expected to ship sometime in early to mid October. The cigar is in fact an extension of his monster series of the cigars, that began way back in 2008. The Karloff is directly inspired by the previous releases of the Boris and Little Boris. The Karloff is a tweaked version of those blends. Johnson is producing 4,000 dress boxes of 13 cigars. Beyond that not much is known about the cigar. We look forward to doing a more detailed review when they arrive; so stay tuned.

The cigar was originally crafted to pay homage to the brands creator and family patriarch Carlos Fuente Sr. The cigar utilizes a variety of rare and aged tobaccos, but what makes this cigar truly stand out is its wrapper. The Don Cralos features a delicate and rich African Cameroon wrapper.This wrapper is truly unique due to the fact that it tends to be quite expensive, rough in appearance and temperamental during the fermentation process. Luckily for us Funte has found a way to utilize this wrapper to perfection. Wrapper: African Cameroon Binder: Dominican Filler: Dominica Tasting Notes: The cigar hits the ground running right from the initial light, featuring notes of cedar, roasted coffee and a touch of leather. As the cigar progresses the flavors ramp up approaching a solid medium body. The cigar also introduces flavors of raisin, earth and a touch of chocolate. The flavors stay very consistent through the final third, which is a great thing in this case. The cigar lacks

Introducing the Davidoff Colorado Claro; a fan and staff favorite at Regency Cigar. This is truly one of the most exceptional cigars in our humidor. What was once a limited release is now available year-round, and for that we are thankful. The cigar is variable in a variety of the most iconic sizes Davidoff has to offer. Sizes include short perfecto, special R, double R and my favorite the No. 3. What makes this cigar so exceptional is the wrapper. The Colorado Claro series features a rare sun-grown Connecticut Ecuador wrapper. The rich reddish colored wrapper is what provides the cigar with its delicious flavor profile. One of my favorite things about the claro is its versatility. It’s a flavorful enough cigar to satisfy a fuller bodied smoker but is smooth enough for a milder to medium bodied smoker to enjoy. This is truly a full-flavored cigar that doesn’t pack a huge nicotine punch. Overall the cigar displays notes of coffee, cedar, chocolate, cream and subtle spice. If you haven’t smoke
Regency Cigar is excited to announce the newest edition to our humidor; in the form of the Davidoff Special 53 Capa Dominicana Limited Edition 2020.

This cigar not only proved it could be done but proved it could be done exceptionally. The cigar is also unique due to its size and format. The cigar is a 53-ring gauge perfecto. This is guaranteed to be one of the most desired and anticipated limited releases we will see this summer. However, the cigar will be extremely limited in quantity with only 4,500 boxes available in the United States.

The cigar begins with delicate toasty and creamy notes. Stimulating notes cacao and coffee begins to present itself. The cigar begins on the milder side but builds up to medium by the final third. The final third of the cigars introduces additional notes of earth and spice.
I think it's important to begin by addressing, who is responsible for regulating the premium cigar industry?I think many might be surprised to find out it's the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. On Aug. 8, 2016, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's deeming regulations went into effect. This essentially marked the first day that FDA was formally regulating cigars. These deeming regulations have, and will continue to have a major impact on the premium cigar industry for years to come. The FDA regulations on the industry are complex and far reaching; in this article we aim to touch on some of the fundamental implications. The three main issues in the FDA’s regulatory efforts stem from warning labels, product approval, and user fees.
Lets first discuss the issue of product approvals. Prior to the FDA taking the reins on the regulation of premium cigars, the new product was able to flow freely into the market. This was a major benefit to the retailer, manufacturer and most importantly t
