Blind Cigar Review: Punch | Knuckle Buster Toro Score 88%

Blind Cigar Review: Punch | Knuckle Buster Toro

“Overall, it was an okay smoke, no frills for me at least. If you like earthy notes with some pepper and char, this will be right up your alley. Little gave in way of sweetness save the grassy notes in the beginning that quickly faded halfway through. Draw issues with it being too tightly rolled made smoking it at times a chore, however all in all, eh, try it… you might like it, you might not, you be the judge…” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: Dunbarton T&T | Muestra de Saka Unstolen Valor

“While I wasn’t all that impressed with this cigar at the beginning it really came to life in the second third. Once that happened I was really into the cigar. The transition into the second third came rapidly, and I’m sure my expression and happiness at that time was visible to anyone around. Even thirty minutes after smoking this cigar, the remains were still felt and tasted on my lips, and I was pretty darn close to heaven. This is something I can easily place into my rotation. And man does it burn for a long time.” -Isaac M. (The Nothing)

Blind Cigar Review: HVC | Serie A Perlas

“Overall, not a bad tasty cigar, definitely slightly above average if smoked correctly, slow and low. The loose draw made this one smoke rather quickly, 55 minutes to be exact, and forced the smoker to slow down and sip this sample. The creamy notes of almonds, leather, peanut shells, and wood complimented each other very nicely and provided a well-balanced experience. I believe this would only be amplified with a better constructed cigar and would be improved immensely. ” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: La Palina | Classic Natural Toro

“Featuring very little in the way of complexity and with only some minor transitions throughout the smoking experience, I won’t go so far as to say this is a boring cigar. Rather this was a fine cigar featuring fine flavors and fine construction. That’s it, it was just “fine” all around. ” -Matt Cade (CADE)

Blind Cigar Review: Diesel | Whiskey Row Robusto

“The flavors never changed from beginning to end but it was a pretty unique experience in terms of flavor. There’s only a few cigars that remind me of that sort of fermented grain flavor of beer and that’s what I tasted from start to finish. The smoke output and construction were spot on and it’s hard to find fault with anything. If you the taste of beer this might be something to try.” -Alan (Eulogy)

Blind Cigar Review: La Gloria Cubana | Spanish Press Robusto

“Magnificent cigar. I’m not a boxed press enthusiast, but I really enjoyed this one despite the format. The flavors nailed a lot of my personal preferences featuring loads of creaminess, leather; ranging from soft and supple to bold and aggressive, and throughout offered a balanced sweetness. Additional notes of mineral and salt played against the sweet creaminess nicely. ” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: J.C. Newman | Diamond Crown Maximus No. 4 Toro

“Overall, this was an okay stick, however not something I myself would seek out. While it was fairly consistent in flavor, it did switch up things to a slight sweeter note on the second half. This would pair wonderfully with a port wine, porter & stout beer with its robust flavors and sweetness options they provide. Burn, construction and draw were spot on for this sample and couldn’t of asked for much better. If you like dark, char, and a bit of chocolate covered cherry sweetness, check out this blend for your enjoyment!” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: Hiram & Solomon | Fellow Craft Toro

“This cigar had some fantastic flavor to start off. From the looks of this dark wrapper I was expecting some good dark earthy flavors. That is exactly what I was getting. Molasses, spice and wood notes mixed in made this very enjoyable. With that being said, right around the half way point it took a turn in the less enjoyably direction. The cigar was burning hot turning most of the flavor to char. Had to take more time in between puffs to lessen that. Although it eventually subsided the damage I think was done and just mushed all the flavors together to get a mostly musty earth. Not how I would have liked it to end.” -Jake P. (Jake P.)

Blind Cigar Review: Back2Back | Connecticut 6 x 60

“I thought this was a great cigar. I enjoyed the bigger ring gage on this cigar, It had a great feel in your hand. I felt this cigar smoked just liked it smelled. It was very wood heavy with a honey sweetness. It was on the milder side on strength but I feel that even someone who leans to a stronger cigar would enjoy this cigar.” -Jake P. (Jake P.)
