Blind Cigar Review: Crowned Heads | Las Calaveras 2018 LC46

“I really enjoyed this cigar it had a nice progression of strength and finished strong. It had a nice mix of flavors and with some time the flavors I could not pick up might become more present. Will smoke this one again.” –Daniel S. (Daniel S.)

Blind Cigar Review: Nestor Miranda Collection | Corojo Coffee Break

“Even though this cigar was a mild/medium taste, the woody flavors had a nice balance throughout. There were flavors of oak and cherry wood with a nice campfire aroma coming from the smoke. The after-taste was not over powering and left a nice taste behind. Even though a bitter flavor showed, it did not come until almost at the end. Overall I am very pleased and would love to enjoy this one again.” -Eric (smalls29)

“As ugly as this cigar was, it goes to show that you can’t judge a book by the cover. The flavors were so good. There was complexity, and yet consistent notes that pulled everything together. I would gladly reach for this cigar again. ” -Matthew T. (A Huge Nerd)

Blind Cigar Review: Crowned Heads | Las Calaveras 2017 LC46

“I really enjoyed this cigar and would definitely add it to my routine repertoire. I’m not a big pepper fan but the amount of pepper in this cigar was perfect. Not overpowering but well balanced with the other flavors to create a cigar that consistently kept my attention but was also relaxing and smooth. This is a great cigar for either an intermediate or experienced cigar smoker.” -Diana (ArmyRN)

Quick Cigar Review: Ashton | ESG 23 Year Salute

The cigar market has plenty of special cigars to choose from. If you are looking for a cigar to celebrate a special occasion or you just want to treat yourself, I highly recommend the ESG especially in this vitola. Something about this size seems to be just the right combination for a perfect burn and great combination of flavor and strength. Since these cigars already have a good amount of age, you don’t need to let them sit in your humidor for a long time before they are in the zone. Smoke them now. They are in the zone now. You will be pleased with the refined, smooth, flavorful, intense, complex, and rich flavors that only improve as the burn progresses.

Blind Cigar Review: Crowned Heads | La Imperiosa Magicos

“This cigar was a nice mix of a dark wrapper with nice smooth subtle flavors that aren’t always typical of a cigar with this dark and oily of an exterior. I enjoyed the quick transitions and the way this cigar changed completely from the beginning to the end. It was a small cigar and a bit of a quick burner, but something I can see as 5 pack worthy.” -Jack (Jack_H)

Cigar News: New El Centurion to have Connecticut Wrapper

The Garcia family, owners of My Father Cigars, has acquired a hybrid wrapper grown in Connecticut and, with it, created a new brand: El Centurion H-2K-CT. Scheduled for release at the IPCPR trade show next month, this will be a spinoff of the core El Centurion line. The new cigar is named after the H-2K-CT Connecticut wrapper type, which the company said is proprietary to El Centurion. But it isn’t a Connecticut wrapper in the usual sense. This isn’t shade grown or broadleaf, but a Cuban-seed strain of tobacco grown in open sunlight and cultivated in the Connecticut River Valley.
