Blind Cigar Review: Montecristo | Espada Oscuro Guard

“I was leery about the first third, hoping it may have some complexity of this blend, however i was delightfully surprised bu the last two thirds. A menagerie of roasted and tasty charred flavors intermingling with sweet caramel and chocolate flavors made this end up being two thumbs up for me! Paired with flawless appearance, construction and burn made it all the better. Top notch med-full bodied smoke!” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: Drew Estate | Undercrown Shade Suprema

“I feel the only downside to this cigar was the draw but because of how much flavor I got off cigar, it ended up not bothering me that much. I felt the second third was the best part of this cigar. Although it smoked fast, the flavor of slight pepper, salted pretzels and caramel was enjoyable. For a mild to medium cigar I though this was very flavorful. For me this would be a perfect cigar for a golf course.” -Jake P. (Jake P.)

Blind Cigar Review: Oliva | Gilberto Reserva Noir Robusto

“I really enjoyed this cigar. Burned nice at a great pace with some wonderful Flavors. Starting with the pepper and earth which moved into the roasted nuts and bitter veggie flavors. While I was smoking this I had a glass of bourbon which paired nicely. The sweetness from my bourbon and the bitter roasted flavors from the cigar was excellent. I look forward to seeing what this was so I can pick up more.” -Jake P. (Jake P.)

Blind Cigar Review: Aging Room | Bin No. 2 C Major

“Loved it, perfect way to wind down after a day of screaming kids and dealing with broken cars. I don’t drink much so I compare flavors to what would pair well with my drink of choice which is coffee, and let me tell you, this was a perfect match. Only issue I had was, I wanted another. Great smoke, great experience.” -Joseph S. (Bearded Bastard)

Blind Cigar Review: Henry Clay | War Hawk Toro

“Connecticut wrappers are a mystery these days. So many blenders have taken a page from the My Father Connecticut and given smokers something to get excited about when they see a Connecticut. The days of mild and straight forward are gone, and we’re treated with cigars such as this one. Complex flavors and body that never let up during the whole session. I’d seek some of these out if I was you. You won’t regret it!” -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)

Blind Cigar Review: Gran Habano | Corojo #5 Gran Reserva 2012 Corona Gorda

“This cigar was the tale of two cigars. If you are a smoker that only keeps the smoke on your palate, you would classify this cigar as one dimensional. Blowing some of the smoke out of your nose bring a delightful pine needle effervescent that makes this a well rounded cigar. I had to take points away do to the burn issues but overall it would be a good cigar that would be enjoyed by most people and would make a good everyday cigar.” -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)

Blind Cigar Review: Villiger | La Libertad Robusto

“This cigar is a grower not a shower. Don’t let the sub optimal appearance deceive you, there’s interesting flavors here that develop over the course of 75 minutes. Even the cracking of the wrapper in the final third didn’t take away from smoking experience. All I ask is that a cigar doesn’t bore me and this stogie isn’t boring by a long shot. The lesson – don’t judge a book by its cover folks.” -Matt Cade (CADE)
