Just an amazing cigar. From the burn, to the construction, and draw everything was flawless. I felt almost manic trying to decide what the profile was at the time I was writing because it would change in a flash. The notes weren't muddled though, they just shifted effortlessly as I was still deciding on what I was tasting just a few puffs before. At twenty-four dollars a stick it is not inexpensive but it is certainly worth it if you're looking for something that is truly worth that price point.

"I'd love to smoke this again. The flavors were crisp and clean with a nice progression throughout. The smoke output was great after a few re-cuts; but I'm not sure I would have discovered that if not for the massive tar build up. " -Alan (Eulogy)

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.

"This was a great little cigar. Nice transitions, and a flavor complexity kind of right in the middle. Not too simple, not overly complex. Burn and draw made for a fun enjoyment factor, and the flavors definitely leave you wanting there to be more to smoke when it is done. Mild-mannered, and no stronger than medium, this would be a good anytime cigar, especially if you are wanting to reach for something with some good flavors and don't have a ton of time to sit and enjoy.
