La Gloria Cubana Spirit of the Lady Toro - Blind Cigar Review
"An earthy, slightly coffee flavored Maduro but very one-note. It became quite harsh likely due to the need to relight so many times. The construction and burn were very lacking. At a budget stick price, this would not be an awful choice but at a higher price point, the construction would make this an absolute no-buy for me." -Lauren S. (Lauren S.)
Drew Estate has announced that their Liga Privada Unico Serie Papas Fritas will now come in 25-count boxes starting in August. Previously they came in boxes of 50. Liga Privada Unico Serie Papas Fritas measure (115 x 44) and have been around since 2012. The idea behind Papas Fritas was to make a more affordable Liga Privada using mixed filler tobacco. The blend remains unchanged and still features Drew Estate’s signature fantail.

Protocol Sir Robert Peel Maduro Corona Gorda - Blind Cigar Review
"This was a decent smoke for me. The cigar had a lot of flavor notes that I like such as leather, coffee and cocoa. The added hickory and campfire were nice also. I sort of wish the initial mix of spice and mixed peppers would’ve stayed on longer, albeit in the background. The cigar became more monotone for me as it progressed but it still remained a tasty smoke and I would definitely revisit it again with a nice espresso or Cuban coffee." -Diana (ArmyRN)

CAO Arcana Mortal Coil - Blind Cigar Review
"Holy hell, three hours to smoke a Toro? Sure was! And it was a great one at that. It had great flavors, good transitions, and kept my interest going, somehow, for that long. The entirety of this cigar is better than its components. Each third, when broken down, doesn't score as well to me as the entire experience. This isn't a cigar I could smoke on a daily basis because, frankly, I don't have three hours every day to enjoy a cigar. However when I find such occasion you bet I will fire this one up again.
