Blind Cigar Review: Padrón | Black Label TAA 2018 No. 89 Maduro

“This is a cigar I would smoke any day of the week. It’s malty chocolate like sweetness really hit the spot. The giant plumes of smoke from the looser draw were quite enticing as well. The only thing I can hold against this one was that it had a very similar flavor profile throughout, however don’t let that stop you from trying one at all, especially if it is priced right!” –John A.

Blind Cigar Review: Davidoff | Robusto Real Especiales 7

“In terms of transitions or flavor profile changes this cigar really didn’t have any. That’s not to say it wasn’t an enjoyable smoke though. The core flavors of pepper, cedar, sweetness, leather, and espresso worked really well together. I couldn’t say that this cigar wowed me but it was a really nice cigar with just enough going on to keep my interest. Depending on price I would say you should definitely give this cigar a try. ” -Jeff (ExpendableYouth)

Quick Cigar Review: Nestor Miranda Collection | 75th Anniversary

I always look forward to the anniversary cigars from Miami Cigar.   From the 25th anniversary of the company to celebrating Nestors 70th anniversary to the 75th I just smoked.    The packaging on these are always stellar and cool to keep around.  The humidor from the 25th is still one of my favorite pieces and tho only desktop humidor I still utilize.   I often find myself attracted to buying Salomon size cigars and never find time to smoke them.    I was excited to finally sit down and spend 2 hours and 40 minutes with this cigar.   It was well constructed and only required a few burn corrections throughout and the draw after the first few puffs opened up and had just right amount of resistance.   The flavors profile while fairly consistent in each third would constantly alternate between flavors.   One moment I would get the sweetness strong and in your face and it would then switch to coffee etc. Making it a very interesting smoke.   Highly recommend this cigar and hope to pick up more.

Blind Cigar Review: Warped | A Dragon’s Wish

“This cigar was good, but not great. It’s one of those cigars that stay consistent. If I wasn’t reviewing it I may have enjoyed it more. This is the kind of cigar that you can smoke and not pay attention to like if you smoke this while watching a show or reading. The cigar had some really nice flavors to me. I was greeted with tea, coffee, wood, chocolate and nuts throughout the smoke, so definitely not one-dimensional. ” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

Quick Cigar Review: Davidoff | Winston Churchill Limited Edition 2019 The Traveller

This cigar really surprised me with the flavors going on. It started out with wintergreen mixed with cinnamon then it transitioned into wood, chocolate and finally honey. The burn and construction were both excellent, I mean c’mon it’s Davidoff you pay for what you get. This was a very good smoke if you have the money and feel like treating yourself I highly recommend it.
