Blind Cigar Review: Partagas | Legend Corona Extra Leyenda

“Exceptional smoke in my estimation. Reminded me quite a bit of a Padron 1926. Big flavor, powerful, lots of smoke. Great flavors of chocolate with some background spice and sweetness. Not really a lot of transitional flavors, but the core of this was so enjoyable I really wasn’t interested in going anywhere else. I enjoyed every second of this, and I’m ready to go buy a bunch more. ” -John I. (John I.)

“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.
