Quick Cigar Review: Caldwell | Hit & Run Part Deux Almost Churchill Score 92%

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 Score 89%

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.

Blind Cigar Review: Diesel | Hair of the Dog Limited Release

“I was happy that I had this cigar as a breakfast stick. It was a consistent smoke although it never really gave me any progression or transition of flavors. This was a mindless type of cigar smoking that I sometimes like. One would have to actually be careful that they didn’t pair it with a strong coffee as it would be overpowered. Pleasant and nice to keep around for those lazy mornings when I wouldn’t want to be jolted awake by a strong or complex cigar.” -Diana (ArmyRN)

Blind Cigar Review: Diesel | Whiskey Row Sherry Cask Robusto

“This was a highly enjoyable cigar, and one that I would never turn down if given the opportunity to smoke again. The flavors might have been muddled, but very pleasing; despite having to remove a plug (which I truly believe to be a fluke) the burn and draw were darn near perfect. This was a truly quality cigar…” -Nate H. (SineQuaNon)

Blind Cigar Review: AJ Fernandez | Rosa de Guadalupe Toro

“Incredibly tasty cigar. The flavors evolved and mingled perfectly till the end. Other than some construction issues I had, I would recommend this to anyone. Very flavorful, excellent smoke output, and a great burn is everything you look for in a top notch cigar. Perfect everyday cigar. ” -Alan (Eulogy)

Blind Cigar Review: La Gran Llave | Connecticut Robusto

“This was a fantastic cigar. There was a lot going on with it. It was very creamy with cedar notes along with a sugary sweetness that lingered on my lips and to top that off there was a yeast doughnut flavor on the retro! C’mon! Pick up a box now! I just know this would have paired wonderfully with a cup of coffee on a Sunday morning. ” -Mickey T. (irratebass)
