“This was a pretty long smoke for a robusto, taking almost an hour and a half to complete. I enjoyed this one a lot and intentionally smoked it slow and cool. Very nice flavors and great performance. I’ll be seeking this one out again for sure. ” -Dave W. (mdwest)

“This was an interesting cigar with many flavor shifts. I wish the final third would have stayed cool enough to finish because I feel that this has a chance to be something special. I’ll definitely revisit this again once the reveal is complete.” -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)

Blind Cigar Review: Espinosa | Reggae DREAD

“This is a damn good cigar. It was slightly milder than I typically prefer but the interesting mix of flavors kept my attention and didn’t leave me wanting more. I’d recommend this to anyone who likes a cigar that is just south of medium strength and would also have no issues handing one to my friends who seldom smoke. This one is worthy of smoking to the nub and is worthy of a place in my humidor.” -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)

Blind Cigar Review: Cornelius & Anthony | Meridian Robusto

“Dinner was done and the air was finally starting to cool when I went out to give this cigar a try. I was blown away initially by the huge flavors this cigar produced and I couldn’t have been luckier to have waited until early evening to smoke the cigar. It is quite intense, and I’m sure a lot of people would call it harsh. I couldn’t imagine smoking this earlier in the day.” -Isaac M. (The Nothing)

Quick Cigar Review: Sensei’s Sensational Sarsaparilla II

Full disclosure… I have been a member of Cigar Dojo for a few years now. As a result of my time on the Dojo app, I have made some great friends and learned a lot about this hobby that we all love so much. When the original Sarsaparilla cigar was released in the Fall of 2014, I was excited to try it because I was already a big fan of the cigars coming out of the La Zona factory from Erik Espinosa. The original Sarsaparilla cigar proved to be another winner, and I still consider that to be one of the best cigars to have ever been crafted at La Zona.
