Blind Cigar Review: Alpha | Absinthe Infused Claro Half Corona

“I am always looking for that perfect short/winter smoke. When I pulled out this half corona I was excited. I was a bit nervous to do a review on this small of a cigar as it’s really hard to break it up into thirds. The cigar smoked great with some nice balance of flavor to start. As the cigar warmed I did get a bitter taste that came and went. I would pick up some of these for that quick winter smoke!” -Zane G. (Zane)

Quick Cigar Review: Pinar del Rio | Reserva Superior Salomon

This was an excellent cigar. I have never come across a PDR that I didn’t enjoy, but this one was among the best. I could also sense in it great aging potential and I believe time will only bring out more of the spice and coffee bean I detected in pre-light. These will not be around long, and I would advise against hesitation on purchasing some of these, as they will not lost long. I remember debating on pulling the trigger on a box of these when they were available years ago, and now regret not buying it even more. Buy a box of these, you will not be sorry.

Blind Cigar Review: Bugatti | Ambassador Robusto

“Marvelous from start to finish. Maybe I’m feeling charitable, as I’m smoking this on a great nigh, but it’s everything you could want in a cigar. Great draw and burn, complex flavors, satisfyingly thick and creamy smoke. I do wish there had been just a touch more pepper involved, to give it a little more character, but that’s a personal palate thing. This was an excellent cigar which could be enjoyed by new smokers and connoisseurs alike, and definitely box-worthy.” -Derek (StogieNinja)

Blind Cigar Review: Flores y Rodriguez | 10th Anniversary Reserva Limitada Figurado

“Even though I found this cigar lacking a wow factor, the flavors were solid. Defined transitions between the thirds held my interest. I wouldn’t grab this one for a special occasion although I would gladly smoke one again.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)

Blind Cigar Review: A. Flores | 1975 Serie Privada Capa Maduro SP52

“This was a nice cigar full of robust flavors. The occasional anise, chocolate and tea created a nice contrast to the woodsy and earth tones. The balance was a little off near the end as the leather faded, but I would certainly smoke another one.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)

Editorial: Rocky Mountain Cigar Festival – 2015

The Rocky Mountain Cigar festival is always a great event with good people, and awesome vendors. It has been growing steadily since it’s inception in 2011. Unfortunately I was deathly ill last year and wasn’t able to attend and see the new venue. This year I was feeling great and ready to smoke, and it didn’t disappoint. Joined by our panelist Jack, we conquered almost the entire festival.
