Blind Cigar Review: Southern Draw | Cedrus Toro

I liked this cigar quite a bit. While I was initially worried about that strong mesquite woodsiness overpowering any other flavors that might come my way, the cigar managed – and managed well – to balance that with some other flavor notes that made this smoking experience one that I wouldn’t mind at all revisiting.” -Matt Cade (CADE)

Blind Cigar Review: Southern Draw | IGNITE 2019 Private Blend Habano #3

“This cigar was just what I needed. With the coronavirus going on the cigar shops are closed, except for carry out and some are doing deliveries….which is a 1st I believe. Anyway this was the 1st day that was nice enough for me to spark up in my man cave *garage* and even though there wasn’t many flavors on this cigar what I got was wood, some sweet tobacco and a bit of leather. The cigar still held up and didn’t let me down……stay safe everyone this is the end of the world……..if ya got em’ smoke em’.” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

Top 25 Cigars of the Year – 2019

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.
