A cigar is beyond a stack of rolled leaves, it’s a work of art. A cigar holds a history of tradition, passion, dedication and craftsmanship. Smoking a stogie is a ritual, which is universal. It brings the smoker into a reconnection of the land it originates from. Even more, the experience unites cigar aficionados from around the world. ∼  AMOXES™

is brought to you by “LaGalera” cigars. I was gifted with a LaGalera Maduro, which is a medium-full bodied cigar with a San Andres wrapper, Dominican Piloto Cubano binder and Dominican Piloto Cubano and Criollo 98 filler.  A pleasant smoke from beginning to the end. I’m not going to fake, I never heard of a “San Andres wrapper, Dominican Piloto Cubano filler and binder :).

I only researched the wrapper and discovered San Andres wrappers are Mexican tobacco leaves from the San Andrés valley of Mexico in Veracruz. Due to the Gulf of Mexico winds and the humid climate, the tobacco produces sweet and spicy flavors.  Pleasantly  surprised, the ALEC BRADLY TEMPUS MADURO “TERRA NOVO” and 1994 BY LA FLOR DOMINICANA “TANGO” have Mexican San Andrés Maduro wrapper. The San Andres wrapper has peaked my interest.

We had the pleasure of being gifted with a “Alec Bradley Post Embargo“cigar. AB’s Post Embargo is a medium-bodied cigar, Honduras wrapper and Nicaragua and Honduras binder and filler. The Post Embargo paired with Samuel Adams Boston Lager produces nutty and milk chocolate flavors.

A FANTASTIC CIGAR! Thank You George Sosa!

Next to the Alec Bradley Sanctum, I fell in love with this cigar! 

 “Drew Estate, Undercrown” 

A blend created by the factory workers utilizing many rare tobacco from different vintages (similar to those of Liga Privada #9). Undercrown is a medium to full bodied cigar with notes of coffee and a spiciness that pleasantly evolves to the end.

Thank You Ray Warren for the smokes!


Stay Smokey!
