Cigarr Review: Romeo y Julieta Cedros de Luxe (LCDH Exclusivo 2015)

In mid-2015, Habanos S.A. released the eagerly awaited,  Romeo y Julieta Cedros de Luxe. This release would mark the fourth Cedros for the Romeo y Julieta brand and also the tenth exclusive release for La Casa del Habanos. The Romeo y Julieta brand is one of the more popular brands for Habanos S.A. and since 2012 the brand has been receiving a lot of love. They have had releases with titles bearing Limitada, Reserva, Añejados, and Gran Reserva, so you might as well make an exclusive for a La Casa del Habano while you are at. Enough of the introduction though, let's take a look at the Romeo y Julieta Cedros de Luxe.

Cigar Review: Punch Descobridores Edición Regional Portugal (2011)

In my opinion, Punch is the brand that comes off as the mild child. It is not as successful as the Global Brands Romeo y Julieta and Montecristo, and not as fun or cool as Ramon Allones and Juan Lopez. Punch has been around for a long time, but it never made it to the next level like H. Upmann in terms of becoming a Global Brand or Bolivar with rating successes. However, with its lack of success, the brand has been able to be selected as a regional release for several years. It has even gotten a limited edition release! The Punch brand received two of the first four regional releases, and with these regional releases we saw larger Punch offerings. While I am not looking at one of the two 2005 regionals, I am looking a vitola that has come back multiple times for the Punch regionals. The vitola is the robusto, and today I look at the Punch Descobridores Edición Regional Portugal (2011).
