Blind Cigar Review: MBombay | Gaaja Maduro Torpedo

“This was a great cigar for a tough day. Earlier today I buried my father so I really needed something to help me relax and this was it. Add to that the fact that I was smoking with my brother (whom I haven’t seen in years) and was in a great cigar lounge (Rudy’s Cigars in Rockford Illinois) and it really made for a good time. If you like great flavors and a medium full strength then I highly recommend you try this. I know I’ll be looking for some as a memorial cigar.” -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)

Blind Cigar Review: MBombay | Vintage Reserve Lancero 1973

“Perfectly balanced and medium bodied is the best way to sum up this cigar. I had the opportunity to smoke two of these premium cigar offerings… that is like 16″ of cigar.. never once did a harsh flavor cross my palate. On the exhale we had cedar, white pepper, herbs, antique tobacco, malts, and a little bit of sweetness. Retro had a delicious creamy airy lemon cake and cedar. Multi-country blend for sure. Perfect construction and burn. This cigar had flavors that reminded me of a old Cuban cigar from the 1980’s with double the damn body. Aroma had an ancient library smell. This cigar would do very well in the European market. I’m done. Bravo.” -Matt C. (Big Matt)

Blind Cigar Review: Mbombay | Gaaja

“The first few thirds of of this cigar were light and what I would call harmonious. This cigar feels like it was blended for those with lighter tastes. While I liked some things about this stick, I disliked the wrapper’s frailty and the muddy, final third of the experience. This would be a good stick with coffee in the morning.” -Ryan (Youngryan216)
