Blind Cigar Review: Gran Habano | S.T.K. Black Dahlia Robusto Score 92%

Blind Cigar Review: Gran Habano | S.T.K. Black Dahlia Robusto

“This was a great smoking cigar. The variance and complexity of flavors offered were amazingly tasty and made it hard to not just want to hotbox this thing because it was THAT good. That being said, I’ll defiantly recommend this cigar to any smoker as it is a mild to medium stick with uddles of semi sweet flavors. I need a box… stat. ” –John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: Ventura | Archetype Sage Advice Gordo

“This cigar definitely had personality. It started off with a nice balance of espresso and chocolate with a very nice, mellow after-taste. The second third became more of a strong espresso with hints of chocolate, much like a chocolate brownie after-taste. Finally, it took on the personality of a strong, bold cigar that was basically a strong cup of coffee. There were nice notes of chocolate throughout but became very strong at the end. The construction was solid and the draw, while very easy at first, became just a not tight about half way through. All in all this was nice cigar that would pair well with any strong drink.” -Eric (smalls29)

Blind Cigar Review: Hiram & Solomon | Entered Apprentice Toro

“This was a good cigar if you want something to begin your day with a cup of Joe. It really didn’t have too many flavor complexities to hold or catch my attention. There was plenty of wood, cream and some spice, but that was about it. I would like to try this cigar again, but in a corona or robusto size. ” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

Quick Cigar Review: RoMa Craft | Aquitaine EMH Saber Tooth

The saber Tooth is an extremely limited release of the Aquitaine EMH. Adding flair and flavor to the existing Aquitaine blend, is a thin barber-pole stripe of Ecuadorian Connecticut to the Habano Ligero wrapper. The Saber Tooth was made in a very small production run, with only 200 boxes and 50 bundles, each 24-count. With such a limited production and highly anticipated cigar, I count myself very fortunate that I was able to buy a box. The Aquitaine EMH Saber Tooth measures 5 x 56 and carries an MSRP of $10/cigar. As with all other RoMa Craft cigars, these cigars were rolled at Nica Sueño in Esteli, Nicaragua.

Blind Cigar Review: La Flor Dominicana | La Volcada

“Phew, after smoking this I need a nap… it was strong! Quite a bit of flavors going on at the start but this mellows out into a standard flavor profile as the pure strength of this smoke overwhelmed what other complexities there could have been. If you want a full full full flavored and nic buzz, hey try this out would ya? I enjoyed it, but not something I could smoke quite often!” -John A. (Bostoneo)
