Cigar News: Michael Giannini Leaves General Cigar

Giannini had been with General for 17 years. In March, 2012, he was promoted to his role as creative director, which also carried the title of director of innovations. He was responsible for coming up with non-traditional cigar releases, and started the Foundry Cigar Co., a subsidiary of General dedicated to unorthodox cigars, including the signature Foundry brand. It featured cigars made from blends of tobacco he wouldn’t reveal, packed in odd-shaped boxes, one of which came together in a shape reminiscent of a bundle of TNT.

Blind Cigar Review: #Famous | Toro

“I personally did not have any problems with this cigar but it never captured my interest or cigar repertoire . The cigar seemed to be infused and the transitions were nil. I would recommend this cigar to the novice or first time cigar smoker as she/he will be able to immediately define flavors even from the cold draw, and those flavors remain consistent and constant throughout the whole cigar experience.” -Matt C. (Big Matt)

Blind Cigar Review: Martinez | Flatiron #2

“This was a really great cigar to smoke during my annual camping trip. Wasn’t to light and wasn’t a pepper bomb. Perfect mix of flavors paired well with a few glasses of scotch by the campfire. These will not disappoint. Enjoy.” -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)

Blind Cigar Review: Bugatti | Ambassador Robusto

“Marvelous from start to finish. Maybe I’m feeling charitable, as I’m smoking this on a great nigh, but it’s everything you could want in a cigar. Great draw and burn, complex flavors, satisfyingly thick and creamy smoke. I do wish there had been just a touch more pepper involved, to give it a little more character, but that’s a personal palate thing. This was an excellent cigar which could be enjoyed by new smokers and connoisseurs alike, and definitely box-worthy.” -Derek (StogieNinja)

Blind Cigar Review: Carlos Toraño | Vault TM-027 Robusto

“Transitions, complexity, nuance… It ain’t necessarily so with this cigar, but the flavor profile is solid and flavorful. Transitions don’t really come with this cigar but flavors are discernible and compatible. It is a good smoke for times when you want the good experience but don’t have to think hard about what the cigar is giving you.” -Matthew T. (A Huge Nerd)

Blind Cigar Review: Manolo Estate | Connecticut Gran Fino Robusto

“This is definitely a first cigar of the day type of smoke. I would even smoke this cigar on an empty stomach first thing in the morning, as the flavors present are so damn good, I digress.
