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)

Quick Cigar Review: Caldwell | Hit & Run Part Deux Almost Churchill

From the first third to the final third I really enjoyed this cigar. If I could smoke all cigars in this format I would be a happy fella as lonsdale is typically my favorite size in any cigar this is just a slightly thicker lonsdale coming in at a 6 1/4 x 48. The cigar had a consistent profile from beginning to end but I thoroughly enjoyed the smoking experience. I would probably rate this cigar a bit higher if it had a bit more of a wow factor but I would be happy to have boxes of these.

Cigar News: Altadis, General, Davidoff, and Drew Estate Not Attending PCA 2020

Today, the four largest cigar companies in America announced that they will not be attending the PCA (formerly IPCPR) trade show this year. Altadis, General, Davidoff, and Drew Estate each released separate press releases but the general consensus is that they are unhappy with the declining attendance, lack of cooperation with members to make changes to the organization, and rising costs. The linchpin for this action new seems to have been the general unrest around last year’s poorly executed announcement of Consumer Day, which has since been cancelled.

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)

Top 25 Cigars of the Year – 2019

Every year we put together a list of our Top 25 Cigars of the Year. Our list is a bit different from some other lists, it is not simply a rehashing of our top scores from the year, or one person’s opinion. We gave each of our panelists 10 votes to cast how they please for what they enjoyed the most in 2019. The order of their votes matter, so their #1 pick is worth twice as much as #10. The cigars do not have to have been reviewed by Blind Man’s Puff, but the panelist must have smoked it.

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.

Blind Cigar Review: Black Label Trading Company | Deliverance Porcelain Corona Gorda

“Really enjoyable lighter bodied cigar. I typically prefer full bodied smokes, but this cigar really displayed some typical mild flavors, cream, nuts, herbs and floral notes, but still had enough potency to make it a good experience for fuller cigar fans. This would be accessible for a newcomer to the leaf and still enjoyable for a grizzled vet.” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: Cohiba | Siglo II

“Overall this cigar was very mild, very smooth, very one dimensional. No pepper spice at anywhere during the smoke. There are some people out there that like a super mild, no spice Connecticut. I am not one of those people. Even though this cigar was extremely well made, it’s just not my thing.” -Wes (SosaCub4Life)
