Michael Frank
From the Print Edition:
maduro issue, Winter 93/94

(continued from page 8)

2116 Summit Ave. (201) 867-8260
Churchills: An easy-to-smoke, uncomplicated cigar. Smooth, rich taste, strong aroma and a very fast draw.
(Ring Gauge: 50 Length: 7" Price: $1.20)


Vincent & Tampa Cigar Co.
2503 21st St. (813) 248-1511
La Eminencia Premier: A fairly plain smoke, with a fast burn and lots of smoke. The taste is mild with a bit of creaminess but little distinction.
(Ring Gauge: 44 Length: 7" Price: $13.25 for 25 cigars)

Rodriguez & Menendez

4321 Armenia Ave. (813) 879-9740
President: A sharp, bold flavor delivered with lots of smoke on the first 10 minutes of draw. Later, the draw tightens, but the flavor remains constant.
(Ring Gauge: 50 Length: 7 1/4" Price: $ 1)


Don Pablo Cigar Co.
3025 Las Vegas Blvd. (800) 537-4957
Torpedo: A very well-made cigar with mellow aromas and stronger undertones of spice. A relaxing, savory cigar, consistent in bum rate and taste for the duration of the smoke.
(Ring Gauge: 58 Length: 7" Price: $44.50 for 10 cigars)

Las Vegas Cigar Co.
3665 South Las Vegas Blvd. (702) 262-6100
Churchill: A straight-ahead cigar with a very smooth, fast and smoky draw. Spicy notes with grassy undertones.
(Ring Gauge: 50 Length: 7 1/2" Price: $52.80 for 25 cigars)


La Plata Cigars
1026 South Grand Ave. (213) 747-8561
Wilshire Maduro: Nice toothy wrapper, fast burn, but not hot. A very rich smoke, the Wilshire isn't complex. The maduro wrapper delivers much better taste than the colorado-wrapped La Platas, but the aroma is a bit flat in both.
(Ring Gauge: 52 Length: 7" Price: $36.25 for 25 cigars.)
