Quick Cigar Review: Cornelius & Anthony | The Gent Corona

This was a very enjoyable cigar. There were plenty of flavors to keep me interested and kept looking at the cigar like mmmm mmm. This cigar would an excellent choice as your first cigar of the day with your favorite cup of joe. The draw was very nice and open, and had a razor sharp burn that needed no touch ups. I smoked the cigar with an inch to go, and would liked to have continue on, but it went out.

Blind Cigar Review: Dunbarton T&T | Todos Las Dias Double Wide Belicoso

“I liked the overall mix of flavors although I really could have used more sweetness hanging around in the second and last thirds. This is a predominantly leather an mineral taste cigar with the beginning offering a nice splash of pepper and spice and the cocoa and chocolate notes bouncing in and out. I think the vitola is perfect and if it was any longer I would have had enough. Tasty and interesting to say the least.” -Diana (ArmyRN)

“Overall this was a solid performing smoke. A bit full bodied and strong for sure, make sure you have something in your stomach before smoking this bad boy, it will hit you going into the second half. Flavors were spot on for a full bodied smoke and diverse enough to make it interesting. Try one out, may be your next full bodied goto!” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Quick Cigar Review: Oscar Valladares | Altar Q Sumatra

This was a really nice cigar, and I’m surprised by how well it preformed given that it was on the IPCPR show floor last week, and already in stores. Yes, I purchased this one. The flavors were mostly honey with a nuttiness and a bit of coffee and some spice. As I mentioned before the burn was top notch, and not one touch up was needed. I really enjoyed this cigar, and I think it would make a nice 1st stick of the day, but bear in mind this is a toro, so there is some time commitment, as this cigar last me right around 95 mins.
