Tatuaje Black Label 2013 Corona Gorda Review

The Label Factor:

With so many editions of the Tatuaje Black Label having been released over the years, it can often be difficult to keep them straight. Perhaps that’s why the 2013 Corona Gorda features a label with a little more bling. I think they could have gone the extra mile and referred to the stick as the Tatuaje Black Label Lil Jon.

Liga Privada Papas Fritas Review

The Label Factor:

CAO Escaparate Six One Five Review

The Label Factor:

If you live in Nashville then you should love this label. Uptown Smoke Shop is one of the most well known B&Ms in the city and having a cigar with their logo on it makes me proud! The name Six One Five references the Nashville area code, making this CAO a love letter to those of us in the area. Thanks CAO!
