Blind Cigar Review: Gran Habano | Corojo #5 Gran Reserva 2012 Corona Gorda

“This cigar was the tale of two cigars. If you are a smoker that only keeps the smoke on your palate, you would classify this cigar as one dimensional. Blowing some of the smoke out of your nose bring a delightful pine needle effervescent that makes this a well rounded cigar. I had to take points away do to the burn issues but overall it would be a good cigar that would be enjoyed by most people and would make a good everyday cigar.” -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)

Blind Cigar Review: Gran Habano | Blue In Green Churchill

“A great mild medium two hour smoke when you have the time to sit back and enjoy a near masterpiece. I wish there was a bit more transitions at the halfway point, however the first and last third really shined and kept my attention to its various rich flavors. I would probably put money down on a box with a great blend like this to see how it progresses over tome for sure!” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: George Rico | S.T.K. Miami Zulu Zulu Mas Paz Edition Connecticut

“The draw, burn and construction were outstanding for this beautiful looking cigar. The flavors, while not in my wheelhouse, were solid and well balanced for the first two thirds. The returning cedar and spice near the end came close to becoming harsh. This cigar might benefit from additional rest. Give me another one, however, and I will gladly smoke it.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)
