Blind Cigar Review: Ohana | Pulse Maduro Toro Score 93%

Blind Cigar Review: Ohana | Pulse Maduro Toro

“My palate has drifted away from maduros and towards more medium-bodied cigars over the past few years. I’ve probably enjoyed less than a handful of the maduros I’ve smoked in that time, they’re often too oily or muddy or dirt-tasting. This one ranks up there with some of the best I can think of, like El Oso, Tennessee Waltz, or the old Liga Privada No. 9. Very good and highly recommended.” -Derek (StogieNinja)

Blind Cigar Review: Oliva | Gilberto Reserva Corona

“This was a nice pleasant smoke that I would absolutely smoke again. I believe this was a corona or even a petite corona. There was plenty of transitions to keep my attention. Starting out with wood, chocolate and rye then switching up to earth tones then settling out with cream…..very interesting smoke. ” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

Blind Cigar Review: Jeremy Jack | JJ14 Corona Gorda

“In the beginning I was quite impressed with this cigar and enjoyed it thoroughly. In fact, I had a hard time putting this cigar down for long. However, it didn’t finish well. My hope is that this was a one off as I would definitely try it again if others had a different experience. I so enjoyed the first two thirds of the cigar so much, that I’m probably scoring this cigar a little high overall. ” -Isaac M. (The Nothing)
