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 Score 88%

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)
