Blind Cigar Review: Villiger | La Flor De Ynclan Robusto

“Over all, a pleasant smoke with a good spice that hit the roof of your mouth and back of the throat, a good solid dark grey ash, plenty of smoke, very enjoyable after a day of dealing with sub zero temperatures and frozen pipes, it was warming indeed. Overall, a fine experience to cap off the day.” -Joseph S. (Bearded Bastard)

Blind Cigar Review: H. Upmann | Hispaniola by Jose Mendez Belicoso

“This was a fairly straightforward flavored cigar. Smack dab in the middle of body, it provided a basic set of typical flavors you’d normally find with a normal affordably priced cigar. The appearance was a bit underwhelming as well which spoiled the experience a bit. Overall, okay smoke, not unique, plenty of these out there in the world. ” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Quick Cigar Review: Davidoff | Oro Blanco

You get what you pay for here. A unique experience with clean defined flavors that were perfectly well balanced throughout the entirety of the duration of this ultra premium cigar. Complexity is unmatched to any cigar I’ve ever had making this smoke a dream. Construction and draw were phenomenal however this particular sample had some issues with the burn line until the second half where it caught up. Because of the fullness and richness of this medium to medium full bodied smoke, it is not something you’ll reach for (providing you have the available funds) everyday. This cigar is meant for those special occasions when you want something that screams quality in terms of very rich flavor that is defined, unique and unmatched to any other stick. Whilst not my sweet spot for flavor profiles, as it was a tad too sweet for me, this definitely goes into my top echelon of cigars I have ever enjoyed.

Cigar News: Crowned Heads Announces Headley Grange Chamuco LE 2019

The original Headley Grange was inspired by the drum beat on the lead-in to the Led Zeppelin classic “When the Levee Breaks.” The name came from where the track was recorded, a former poorhouse (built in 1795) in East Hampshire, England, named Headley Grange. Last year, Crowned Heads released a limited edition version called “Black Lab LE 2018,” named after the black Labrador Retriever that was hanging around the Headley Grange studio during the recording of Led Zeppelin IV. That blend uses the same fillers as the original Headley Grange, but replaces the wrapper with Connecticut (Habano) maduro. For 2019, Crowned Heads is releasing “Headley Grange Chamuco LE 2019.”

Blind Cigar Review: La Barba | Ricochet Cru Mexi-Sol Coronita

“Magnificent cigar. Loved it. Perfect format for me personally, and a flavor profile to match. Big, bold flavors of earth with a world wind tour of coffee, molasses, spices, peppercorns and a bit of an anisette flashing around on the finish. Tremendous construction, nearly flawless. Very extremely well made. Nice progression in terms of strength, starts out very manageable and builds to an agreeable and enjoyable full body by the end. Quite possibly the perfect cigar to follow a big meal. I’m buying boxes. No doubt about it. ” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: La Flor Dominicana | 25th Anniversary

“I enjoyed this quite a lot. Nice change from my usual flavor preferences as well as being out of my comfort zone in terms of vitola. Served as a nice reminder to get out of your comfort zone once in a while. There’s a great big world of cigar opportunities out there and it’s nice to step out of your normal routine from time to time. This cigar stayed pretty much in the medium realm throughout in terms of strength and complexity. The display of really nicely refined baked good flavor, floral qualities, finishing with rich dark woody notes offered a nice range of experiences. Aside from some mid-smoke missteps in construction this was a real joy of a cigar. ” -John I. (John I.)
