"I thoroughly enjoyed this Cigar despite its large size. Sweet and lightly peppery with an abundance of smoke output. The only drawback was the aforementioned bitterness at the end. Be prepared to invest some time. This is one is slow burner. " -James H. (Keikan Jim)

Each of our panelists were given 10 votes to towards our Top 25 Cigars of the Year - 2018. As with previous years, the order of their votes mattered as their #1 vote is worth twice as much as their #10. Our list is made up of cigars that had a wide release this year. The cigars that are eligible do not have to have been reviewed on Blind Man's Puff, but the reviewer must have smoke it at some point to vote for it.

"All around a great cigar. The flavor profile could have had a bit more of an evolution, but the core flavors were quite enjoyable though out and the retrohale provided a nice change from the standard draw. The creaminess of the smoke could have been a little more consistent as parts of the cigar produced thick creamy clouds but a lot of the time it was a little but thin. Overall a very good cigar that I would definitely smoke again. " -Alan (Eulogy)

“Loved this. Really well balanced. Great flavors throughout. Really nice rich bold flavors of leather, coffee, and an edge of sweetness. Potent and attention grabbing. ” –John I. (John I.)

"I liked the overall mix of flavors although I really could have used more sweetness hanging around in the second and last thirds. This is a predominantly leather an mineral taste cigar with the beginning offering a nice splash of pepper and spice and the cocoa and chocolate notes bouncing in and out. I think the vitola is perfect and if it was any longer I would have had enough. Tasty and interesting to say the least." -Diana (ArmyRN)
Steve Saka of Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust® (DTT) has shared details on facebook in the last month about his plans to add a new vitola to the Todos Las Dias lineup. Today he officially announced the Todos Las Dias Thick Lonsdale “Mas Fuerte” in a press release.
