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.

Blind Cigar Review: Leccia | Black 552 Robusto – Revisited

“This cigar was a treat to smoke. The flavors of the first third seemed to find their way into the mix one at a time while the middle married them together in a near perfect balance. The complete change of direction during the final third allowed this cigar to gradually ramp down and finish on a softer, sweeter note. The transitions were noticeable and provided a solid range of developed flavors.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)

Blind Cigar Review – Revisited: Leccia | White 552

“Overall, I enjoyed this cigar. It had a real good mix of being creamy with a hint of sweetness at the end of the first third, going into the second third. It had a nice amount of overall spice throughout also. The spice did seem to pick up some right towards the end. Good smoke. I would definitely smoke it again.” -Wes (SosaCub4Life)

Blind Cigar Review: Leccia | Luchador El Hombre

“Enjoyable. As I’ve been smoking over these past few years, I’ve slowly begun to lose a taste for heavy maduros, but I like this one, in part because it’s not too heavy. It’s not particularly complex, but it features everything a maduro ought to. It’s like if AJ Fernandez quit blending budget sticks and moved on to the good stuff. Highly recommended for fans of his work who want to try something just a little bit better.” -Derek (StogieNinja)

Blind Cigar Review: Leccia | Black 552 Robusto

“This may be my favorite cigar I’ve smoked for BMP. For sure in the top 3. I want to say this is a definite box purchase for me, but I’m afraid of the price tag, I guess we’ll find out. I would recommend this to anyone, not too strong, tons of flavor and spices. I think this may be a Habano, but not one I’ve ever had before, and if it’s not, that would be even more interesting because I am not fooled often. Great experience, I can’t wait to find out what it was.” -Emmett (rhetorik)
