I am glad to meet in my site all lovers of cigar smoke, great food, and wonderful products  of La Buena Vida. My learning of cigars has been going on for 12 years, I have met (and learned from) most knowledgeable masters and distinguished connoisseurs all over the world. in parallel I have been developing my knowledge of gastronomy and cooking, as well as tasting abilities. A seasoned connoisseur, I have taken part in various tastings. Dictionaries explain: “connoisseur is a person competent to pass critical judgement in an art or matter of taste, a discerning judge of the best”, I don’t feel myself a judge of the things I love with all my heart and taste receptors, but I will definitely share my knowledge and appreciation with those who want to learn. My naturaly subtle perception of taste and smell enables me to derive wonderful emotions from the great things of quality, never taking them for granted.

Cigar Reviews, Tasting Cigars, Cuban cigars.

Taste is my icon. The taste of a fine cigar, the taste of a sophisticated Haute cuisine dish or a rustic hearty dinner in an Italian village. The taste of a journey, the aromas of woodlands, Mediterranean landscapes, tropics and seas. The aftertastes and warm memories of meetings with special people. Journeys to various places, where I have not been before, or have been and they became the gems in my collection of life’s great emotions. I try to live what I love. And appreciate every possibility to savor things that I like. I have a pretty good base of cultural academic education, that’s why, when it comes to the area of pleasure products, I often combine and compare them in my mind, while tasting, with art, music, history, culture, literature, and other things that make a human’s life so much more exciting, interesting and substantial than just consuming. Every product, even the finest by itself, such as a cigar, reveals its pith better and has a deeper effect on you when you can see a bit more to it than just an expensive and stunningly packed treat. It shares its soul with you and gives you the warmth of the hands of the people who grew and cultivated it, and you give it back your love and appreciation. Join me in this precious exchange! I write in-depth cigar reviews, share experiences for which I hunt tirelessly, of amazing products and places, and share my knowledge and hints on cooking, savouring, combining tastes. I write mostly about those cigars which I choose to be worthy of appreciation, analyzing, memorizing, and enjoying again! So, this website is not planned to be a catalogue, and not a list of new releases, but a guide for a Gourmet.

Ачма / Achma – Georgian and Abkhazian treat

Ачма Одно из моих юношеских воспоминаний о Москве - это поедание на старом Арбате, в кафетерии "Воды Лагидзе" (существует ли оно сейчас?) этого довольно экзотического, не виданного ни в одной заграничной стороне, лакомства. Ачма. Совсем [...]
