Blind Cigar Review: Ave Maria | Lionheart Earl Score 91%

Blind Cigar Review: Ave Maria | Lionheart Earl

“Really well crafted and lovingly made cigar that is probably the polar opposite of what appeals to my palate. Very crisp, bright and dry flavors. In the early portion there were some fairly negative points offering bitterness and astringency. Overall a fairly mild cigar that may appeal to devotees of a more classic Connecticut flavor profile. ” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: Crux | Epicure Maduro Robusto

“It’s a fantastic cigar. I’m not going to say it will wow you with it’s dynamic profile changes because it won’t. The flavors are the same from beginning to end but they’re crisp and bold the entire time. It just does so many things right that it’s impossible not to recommend and if I was after a great experience that I was just wanting to relax and enjoy smoking I would reach for again and again. ” -Alan (Eulogy)

Quick Cigar Review: Caldwell | Hit & Run Part Deux Almost Churchill

From the first third to the final third I really enjoyed this cigar. If I could smoke all cigars in this format I would be a happy fella as lonsdale is typically my favorite size in any cigar this is just a slightly thicker lonsdale coming in at a 6 1/4 x 48. The cigar had a consistent profile from beginning to end but I thoroughly enjoyed the smoking experience. I would probably rate this cigar a bit higher if it had a bit more of a wow factor but I would be happy to have boxes of these.

Top 25 Cigars of the Year – 2019

Every year we put together a list of our Top 25 Cigars of the Year. Our list is a bit different from some other lists, it is not simply a rehashing of our top scores from the year, or one person’s opinion. We gave each of our panelists 10 votes to cast how they please for what they enjoyed the most in 2019. The order of their votes matter, so their #1 pick is worth twice as much as #10. The cigars do not have to have been reviewed by Blind Man’s Puff, but the panelist must have smoked it.

Blind Cigar Review: Trinidad | Espiritu Toro

“This was one fantastic cigar. The intensity of the flavors were so enjoyable alongside the semi sweetness it provided were phenomenal. Complexity was the name of the game with this medium bodied smoke. I look forward to smoking more of these as soon as i know what it is!” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Quick Cigar Review: Don Lino Africa | Robusto

While I have never smoked the original Don Lino I have seen them in catalogs etc. but I can’t make any comparisons. I did enjoy this cigar but it’s not in my top 5 cigars that come from Miami Cigar and Company. The creaminess at the end really brought this cigar home and I do recommend picking up a fiver at the very least.
