Blind Cigar Review: J.C. Newman | Diamond Crown Maduro No. 4

“So I must start off with this statement: I need to smoke this cigar again to get a true idea of what it is all about. That being said there are some high notes but that can not overcome the tight draw. This is the number one killer of any cigar for me. Disappointing…” -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)

Blind Cigar Review: La Palina | Classic Natural Toro

“Featuring very little in the way of complexity and with only some minor transitions throughout the smoking experience, I won’t go so far as to say this is a boring cigar. Rather this was a fine cigar featuring fine flavors and fine construction. That’s it, it was just “fine” all around. ” -Matt Cade (CADE)

Blind Cigar Review: AVO | Improvisation LE20

“The cigar started off well, developed nicely, then finished with a slight harshness that wasn’t quite enjoyable. It heated up quite a bit in the final third. Maybe smoking it slower would eliminate this, but I am not 100% sure. All in all a decent smoke. The power behind it as it transitioned through the final two thirds was a bit of a surprise, and may prove too strong for a newer smoker. I was expecting it to stay in the medium range with the sweeter notes from the beginning.” -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)

Blind Cigar Review: La Gloria Cubana | Spanish Press Robusto

“Magnificent cigar. I’m not a boxed press enthusiast, but I really enjoyed this one despite the format. The flavors nailed a lot of my personal preferences featuring loads of creaminess, leather; ranging from soft and supple to bold and aggressive, and throughout offered a balanced sweetness. Additional notes of mineral and salt played against the sweet creaminess nicely. ” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: J.C. Newman | Diamond Crown Maximus No. 4 Toro

“Overall, this was an okay stick, however not something I myself would seek out. While it was fairly consistent in flavor, it did switch up things to a slight sweeter note on the second half. This would pair wonderfully with a port wine, porter & stout beer with its robust flavors and sweetness options they provide. Burn, construction and draw were spot on for this sample and couldn’t of asked for much better. If you like dark, char, and a bit of chocolate covered cherry sweetness, check out this blend for your enjoyment!” -John A. (Bostoneo)
