The Gentleman recently got his hands on an Oliva Serie O, continuing his recent trend of sampling the best reviewed cigars under ten dollars. The Serie O has received more than solid reviews this year and for good reason, this is another quality value buy for all you young gents out there with a budget. This stoge draws easily and produces a lot of smoke, good tasting smoke at that. It’s unapologetic in it’s strong tobacco taste, complimented with tones of spice and cedar among other things. The Oliva Serie O is Gentleman approved.

Gentlemen, meet the best $5 dollar cigar this here gent has ever had, the Loose Cannon 1206 Single Shot. The first thing you’ll notice about this particular stogey is it’s box-press shape, but that won’t be what you remember it for. This bad boy has phenomenal taste, it’s smooth with a wide range of flavors stretching from coffee beginnings to a spicier tobacco finish. This is one of the rare cigars that will prove palatable both for the neophyte cigar enthusiast and the old salty veteran. One of the main reasons why is the price, this particular stick tastes and feels like a much more expensive cigar, it’s an absolute value buy at five bucks. We here at The Dapper Young Gentleman strongly encourage you to add a few Loose Cannon’s to your cigar collection the next time your struck with a craving for something new.

Cigar Review- Bloodline

slide11

In The Gentleman’s travels of sunny southwest he was lucky enough to stumble across Cigars Olde Towne Havana in Orange, California. Here there was an extremely informed older gent who recommended a new brand of cigar, Bloodline. The reason he lent his seasoned stamp of approval to this particular stogie was due in large part to a process called “crushing”, where small amounts of tobacco extract are used to drip onto and further flavor cigars. The Gentleman was impressed by the product of this unusual process, the flavor difference was noticeable in the Habano and Connecticut wraps, one was smooth and creamy and the other had a strong tobacco flavor and both were strong without being overpowering. The Bloodline cigar is something that any young cigar aficionado should try at least once.

Why Every Cigar Loving Gentleman Needs a Humidor

Fact: There are few things classier or more impressive than a good collection of premium cigars. In order to keep this collection fresh any budding cigar aficionado will require a humidor as cigars tend to go bad very quickly. Humidors, like cigars, are surprisingly affordable and you can find quite a few for less than $50 on Amazon. A well taken care of cigar collection can add a level of sophistication to any young gentleman’s repertoire, there’s a reason there doesn’t seem to be a single Most Interesting Man In the World Dos Equis commercial without one.
