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

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: Southern Draw | Cedrus The Hogan

“I don’t generally reach for a maduro, however the cigar was fantastic. Superior construction and performance throughout led to a very enjoyable smoke. Flavors did not transition very much, however they were always pleasant and mouthwatering. If you are not a fan of maduros, you should pick a few of these up and decide for yourself.” -Adam B. (Bushboy)
