Blind Cigar Review: My Father | La Gran Oferta Lancero

“I really enjoyed this cigar. There was quite a bit of flavors going on with milk chocolate, wood, coffee, cream, spice and some marshmallow at the very end. The cigar stayed medium until the very final third where the spice kicked it up a notch. ” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

Blind Cigar Review: Plasencia | Alma del Campo Tribu

“This was a very flavorful and rich smoke for me. I enjoyed the coffee and chocolate notes but the lemon grass flavors added a very nice twist to this cigar. I would definitely smoke this cigar again and it would pair nicely with some of the coffees that I drink.” -Diana (ArmyRN)
“This car cigar is just plain delicious. It offers plenty of flavor transitions, creamy body, and the draw is great. While I feel let down by the way things just seemed to peter out in the last third, it wouldn’t hesitate to smoke another. The cigar smokes for such a long time, much longer than other cigars this size, it’s quite ok to give up the last third and stick with the part of the cigar that gives one of the best smoking experiences I’ve had in awhile.” -Isaac M. (The Nothing)

Blind Cigar Review: Davidoff | Chef’s Edition 2018

“This was a decent stick with plenty of flavor transitions from third to third. The thick luxurious flavors proved ample enjoyment and relaxation. The only downside I had was with the burn as a result of an uneven construction during the first half of the cigar. Something I’d like to try again before I decide if it’s a must try….” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Quick Cigar Review: Davidoff | Superior Toro

Overall, this was a very tasty cigar with many flavors one doesn’t typically get with many sticks. I thoroughly enjoyed the sweet creamy flavors that exuded from the cigar. The burn was spot on and construction near perfect. The only issue was the super flaky ash, which ended up all over me as bits and pieces would separate from the main bulk. Worth $32? Maybe as a celebratory smoke or if you want something that is a change of pace that is a mild/medium profile. Thumbs up on this masterpiece.

Quick Cigar Review: E.P. Carrillo | Encore Majestic

The Encore Majestic is the penultimate cigar smoking experience for me. Good looking, well constructed with a very good draw and burn, this smoking experience left me wanting nothing more than what I had. Easy to smoke, enjoyable to my palette and relaxing yet interesting, the Majestic maintained it’s great construction without need for touch-ups while producing a nice amount of bluish white smoke. The flavors were there right from the start with great progression and a weaving type quality that kept me very interested. It hits all my sweet spots of earthiness, chocolate and coffee, citrus and even a bit of nuttiness mixed in from time to time. I don’t buy a lot of boxes of cigars because I really do like variety but I dare say this is one cigar that will have a permanent place on my list of box worthy cigars.

Blind Cigar Review: Crowned Heads | Court Reserve XVIII Robusto

“This was a pretty tasty cigar to me the whole way through. It’s core flavor profile kept me happy however it lacked much change or translation which made it a bit one note during the smoking session. Coupled with the quick burning time from a lack of being rolled tightly enough, it doesn’t get to high of a mark from me, however it was very good at what it did provide. ” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: Foundation | The Wise Man (Maduro El Güegüense) Lancero Score 93%

Blind Cigar Review: Foundation | The Wise Man (Maduro El Güegüense) Lancero

“I’ll be honest: I don’t like maduros. Most give me cottonmouth, and the ones that don’t are usually too syrupy or meaty to enjoy. This really took me back to when I first started smoking cigars and loved big, bold maduros. I also don’t like lanceros much. They usually require too much care when smoking, and in my experience the narrow gauge is great for shorter smokes but gets stale in a longer format. This one performed really well. I really enjoyed this one and will be looking forward to the reveal.” -Derek (StogieNinja)
