Mombacho, Patina and Mo


Mombacho Cigars S.A. has announced today that Mo Maali has been named the company’s National Sales Manager.

“I’m thrilled to have Mo on board. His experience in the cigar industry will bring strength to the Mombacho Cigars organization and his extreme passion for our brands is endless. Mo has the knowledge and personality to guide our sales team and I wish him all the best,” said Mombacho President and Master Blender Claudio Sgroi.

Maali broke into the cigar industry in 2014 with the Sultans of Smoke website and podcast. He then moved to the retail side of the industry as the manager of Casa de Puros in Forest Park, IL. In his role as National Sales Manager, Mo will oversee the growth of Mombacho Cigars in the American market.

“I am looking forward to representing Mombacho on a national level,” Maali said. “Mombacho is a brand on the rise and I am excited to help take the brand to the next level. People need to know Mombacho and people need to know Claudio. The bottom line is, we have great people making great cigars and we want to share them with cigar smokers everywhere.”

In addition to his role as National Sales Manager, Maali is also the owner of Patina Cigars – which are made at Mombacho’s factory. Patina Cigars are the first cigars out of Mombacho’s factory Casa Ravioli Casa Favilli that feature tobaccos from outside of Nicaragua. Patina Cigars will have a formal market debut in May, 2017.

Classic covers vol 2 By AVO


Rating – (7) Rambo
Strength – (3) Sly
Vitola –
Price – $15
Wrapper – Ecuadorian 702 Marron
Binder – Mexican
Filler – Dominican Republic and Nicaragua
Drink – Dr. Pepper

I would like to start off by saying that I smoked the Vol 1 a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it but this one I think was even better. A very smooth complex cigar that I discribed as fitting very well with some pretzels (not sure if I was just hungry or what) I would suggest you pick one of these up, they are a little on the pricy side of things but a limited product and worth it for a one time deal for sure.

Immortal by Plasencia


Rating – (5) Bullet to the head
Strength – (2) Demi
Vitola – Robusto 5 x 54
Price – $4 Get them at Famous Smoke Shop
Wrapper – Nicaraguan Habano
Binder – Nicaraguan
Filler – Nicaraguan
Drink – Dr. Pepper Slushy

I have never had anything by Plasencia and this was a pleasent surprise. This type of cigar is not really in my wheel house but I can tell this one would appeal to tons of cigar smokers, I would recommend it to anyone looking for a lighter smoke. The price on these is really unbeatable and I can see this one being a good everyday cigar for some people.

Awesome gift by Ben

HERF’d last night with my BOTL Ben aka @CigarKing1969 at the Burning Leaf in Aurora. Again, for those that don’t understand the bond that cigars can create between people, here is yet another example. Ben I appreciate the generous gift my friend and can’t wait to HERF again! Also, if you have not been out to see Jamal at the Burning Leaf, make a point of it, awesome selection and a top notch brother. To my new friends Dre and David, I appreciate the knowledge you guys shared last night about different cigar recommendations.



Amazing Christmas Bomb by Jared

There are times in life where you are truly humbled and speechless, tonight was one of those nights. More than just a form of relaxation for many, cigars can serve as a bonding force in people’s lives, hell cigars are what formed the foundation of my friendship with Drew. Case in point is my Brother of the Leaf Jared aka PNW on the Cigar Dojo app. Jared was nice enough to send me some cigars just for the fact we are friends on the app. You may ask, have you met Jared? The answer is no I have not, but I can tell you he is an awesome guy just by my short interactions with him via Cigar Dojo. For those of you unfamiliar with the Cigar Family Charitable Foundation, you can find them on Facebook or They sell these cigars to raise money for children in the Dominican cigar regions, started by the Newman and Fuente families. Jared, the return fire is coming, may you and your family have a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.


I still think you need to create that subgroup and call it the Legion of Plume.
