Blind Cigar Review: Battleground Cigars | Darby Toro

“Very nice. This has been a very good experience. No bitterness at the end. no sour after taste. A nice balance of flavors. There was a primary leathery flavor with a sweet cinnamon after taste. There was a light tingle on the lips at the end. It was a change to be able to enjoy such a balanced cigar all the way through to the end. The after taste was my highlight. A smooth taste that does not linger like bad breathe. This would be anice addition to the humidor and would pair well with a spiced rum.” -Eric (smalls29)

Blind Cigar Review: Diesel | Grind (2017) Robusto

“Pretty solid effort. A really darkly attractive cigar with big rich flavors in the earthy/woody range with some interesting side notes of herbs and spices coming in at a few points. I’d love to stick a box of these in the back of my cabinet and forget about them for a year or two. I’ll bet they really sing with a little age. ” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: Dunbarton T&T | Todos Las Dias Half Churchill

“This cigar was great in my opinion. A well-built cigar that was very easy to work with. Simple cut, light, and smoke made this cigar very nice. The flavor profile was delicious. There was not a lot of complexity, but the overall smoke and aroma was absolutely pleasant. If I could make one suggestion, I would say to pre-cut the cigar and let it sit for at least 30 minutes. This will allow an ample amount of rest time and will get the remainder of the harshness out of it, so that it will burn and taste great all the way through. Enjoy these, they are worth the buy.” -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)
