Blind Cigar Review: Edgar Hoill | OG OSOK Chakal

“Overall, I truly enjoyed this cigar. It was a quicker smoke and had superb flavors coming through in the beginning. The second third started well, then faded slightly, but the overall was very pleasing. Fruit and black licorice are what you will find with this stick. So, if that interests you do yourself the favor of trying these out, you will not be disappointed.” -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)

Blind Cigar Review: C.L.E. | Signature 2015 Robusto

“I was impressed the first half of the cigar. The flavors were enjoyable and not over powering. The taste of cedar and espresso were pleasing to the palate. However, as I began the final third, the flavors gave way to a strong, sour taste. I do not enjoy this because it leaves a bad after taste. Overall I enjoyed the cigar and imagined myself smoking it by a camp fire at the beach or in the mountains.” –Eric (smalls29)

Blind Cigar Review: Tatascan | Robusto

“Wonderful and enjoyable. I want to smoke this one again. The flavors were awesome and close to perfect. The cinnamon was very enjoyable, almost reminding me of a Tabasco flavor. The undertones of chocolate added to the uniqueness and provided a wonderful smoking experience. I would very much like to have a box of these in my humidor. I could enjoy this with a latte or espresso. Maybe even a stout ale. The one thing that I could think of that would make this better was if it were a churchill.” –Eric (smalls29)
