Blind Cigar Review: La Flor Dominicana | Ligero A Score 93%

Blind Cigar Review: La Flor Dominicana | Ligero A

“This was probably one of my most favorite reviews that I have done. I was dreading initially smoking this cigar only because of the vitola and amount of time I knew was required. However, as soon as the first third started and the flavor profile showed itself, I was hooked. Between the good balance of earth and barnyard, to the coffee and creamy finish, this cigar had an overall complexity that was second to none. You will need to block off a solid amount of time, but by no means will you be disappointed. This cigar will go well with coffee, libations, or a Pepsi. Enjoy these as much as possible.” -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)

Quick Cigar Review: Bespoke | Basilica A

Amazing would be an understatement for this fine luxurious smoke. Ample amounts of complexity and well balanced medium bodied flavors were extracted and deeply appreciated as the blender really knows how to make a grade A smoke.  I cannot sing praises high enough… you MUST… in fact I demand you to buy a Bespoke Basilica A and experience what this cigar has to offer… you will be forever spoiled.

Blind Cigar Review: Montecristo | White Series Rothchilde

“Excellent smoke! One of the best mild-medium smoked I have ever had the pleasure of enjoying. The rich buttery and vanilla notes that were the backbone of this cigar were thoroughly enjoyable. Only smoke this cigar when you have the time to sit back, relax, and savor a truly high quality cigar. ” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: AVO | Signature Belicoso 30 Years

“This was a very flavorful, well executed, mild cigar. The constant reminder of sweetness paired with the various other notes made this cigar a pleasure to smoke. While it did not have many flavor descriptors, what it offered was a great experience that I would definitely revisit in the future when I am in the mood for something milder and elegant.” -John A.

Blind Cigar Review: Iconic Leaf | Recluse Amadeus Habano Reserva Lancero

“If I were to make my own cigar, it would look much like this. It was almost painful to put this cigar down. The savory qualities kept me coming back to it, distracting me from other things (like the kiddo crying about her ball rolling into the street.) It wouldn’t be hard to put this cigar into regular rotation, and when this is posted, I’ll probably find a box. While there wasn’t a whole lot of transition in flavors, what flavors it has keeps you coming back for more.” -Isaac M. (The Nothing)

Blind Cigar Review: Carolina Blue | Maduro Toro

“This was a very full bodied cigar. I know that I am more sensitive to nicotine and pepper than most, but it wasn’t overpowering or unpleasant for me. If I hadn’t just eaten before I’m not sure if my opinion would be the same. The flavors were rich but didn’t have a real evolution throughout. If you’re a fan of rich full bodied cigars this is a great choice, but I would need to be prepared to smoke something this powerful again. ” -Alan (Eulogy)
