Blind Cigar Review: Cohiba | Blue Robusto Score 90%

Blind Cigar Review: Cohiba | Blue Robusto

“My vocabulary of superlatives are inadequate to do this justice. Easily one of the best, and most memorable cigars I’ve ever had. Complex, and really nicely nuanced. It doesn’t really progress through “changes” like a lot of cigars, instead there are all kinds of things happening, all the time.” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: AVO | Syncro South America Ritmo Toro

“In terms of flavor, this would likely be a good introductory cigar for a novice. The flavor profile is light, accessible and pleasant. Creamy, floral and mild mannered with a bit of a kick toward the end. Anyone with an interest in experiencing cigars would likely be impressed. The construction problems would be a drawback for a newcomer however.” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: Alpha | Absinthe Infused Claro Half Corona

“I am always looking for that perfect short/winter smoke. When I pulled out this half corona I was excited. I was a bit nervous to do a review on this small of a cigar as it’s really hard to break it up into thirds. The cigar smoked great with some nice balance of flavor to start. As the cigar warmed I did get a bitter taste that came and went. I would pick up some of these for that quick winter smoke!” -Zane G. (Zane)

Quick Cigar Review: Arturo Fuente | Opus X 20th Anniversary Father & Son Score 95%

Quick Cigar Review: Arturo Fuente | Opus X 20th Anniversary Father & Son

This cigar was so much better after a couple months of rest. When I first smoked it, I knew it was good, but not as special as I hoped. This time it was special. This 20th Anniversary Opus is nothing like the regular opus. It is medium bodied and nuanced, not in your face strength. The construction was almost perfect and the flavors were balanced. I only look forward to how this will age years on. Definitely recommend if you can find them.

Blind Cigar Review: La Flor Dominicana | Air Bender Maduro Chisel

“I wanted to rate this cigar higher. The beginning and middle had some really nice flavors coming through. The smoke output on each draw was plentiful. The oily wrapper and chisel tip made it easy to smoke. All that, and then the final third hit a brick wall. Relights galore and harsh flavors just made the overall rating from me fall off a cliff. I would hope this stick was an anomaly in an otherwise solid blend. If I had stopped after the second third I would be happy.” -Matthew T. (A Huge Nerd)

Blind Cigar Review: Fratello | Oro Robusto

“The beginning was very nice and enjoyable. The predominant flavors were wood and nuts. There were hints of sweet cherry wood and some earthy tones. The flavors remained nicely balanced up unto about the final third. At this point it became bitter and sour. I consider this one an old fashioned cigar. I think it would pair nicely with a scotch or spiced rum.” –Eric (smalls29)

Blind Cigar Review: Davidoff | 702 2000

“This one was really different, and that is a good thing. No more of the same old flavor profile here. Some unique flavors mixed with a great burn and tons of smoke output, that makes this a cigar I want to try again. I will be glad to find out what this one is.” -Matthew T. (A Huge Nerd)
