Blind Cigar Review: Cubanacan | Mederos Oscuro Fifty 3

Blind Cigar Review: La Gloria Cubana | Natural Churchill

“The flavors were enjoyable, strength within reason and construction was spot-on. What more could one person ask for in a cigar? It might not have been deadnuts center of my wheelhouse in terms of the flavors, but they were quite enjoyable nonetheless. I really liked this cigar.” -Kip (Half Ashed)

Blind Cigar Review: Cubanacan | Connecticut Rothchilds

“Overall a very good cigar. I enjoyed the first third immensely. The rich flavors of upfront cream, cedar, nuts, and just the right amount of white pepper finishing off with a hay/grass note was just awesome. The second and last third was a little bit of a let down. By no means was it bad, but I was expecting the second and last third to build on the first third. The inherent mild bitterness makes me believe this cigar will benefit from aging. I’d like to grab a fiver or tener to age and sample every 6 months. I think this will be a really great cigar come 2 years.” -Jiunn (jliu)

Blind Cigar Review: Cubanacan | Soneros Habano Maduro Toro

“I really enjoyed this cigar, and I could tell this is a super-premium. I think these have a lot of aging potential if some of the spice would lessen over time and let more of those leather and woody flavors come through, and maybe more. It did get a little hot in the final third, and I would have liked a little more complexity, but I think time will be good to it. Highly recommend.” -Emmett (rhetorik)
