Blind Cigar Review: Sindicato | Cubico Toro

“The fact there was not much going on in the flavor and body of this cigar until almost halfway deducted points here, although it did develop into a very flavorful cigar. Had the cigar started as it finished, and developed as it did, it would have been a phenomenal smoking experience. Even though it did start off on the light side, I really do look forward to trying it again. This would be a great cigar to start the day with, as it does end up flavorful and can easily be smoked first thing on an empty stomach. Medium roast coffee with cream or sweet tea would be the strongest beverage to try and pair in the morning, as anything stronger would easily overrun it, even at the end. This would also be a cigar, though on the large side, that I would not be afraid to hand to anyone to enjoy. ” -Kevin A. (Kevin A

“An extremely earthy and smoky cigar. If you are a fan a sticks with strong mineral and hickory style flavors this should be added to your list to try. While it’s not exactly my preferred profile I definitely appreciated the layers of mineral, smoke, and hints of spice.” -Lauren S. (Lauren S.)

“If you are in to earthy, spicy cigars, that perform well and don’t disappoint, then this is a cigar for you. It developed from medium to the high end of medium full throughout that smoking experience on an almost linear level. No abrupt changes in strength or body, and no re-lights or touchups needed. While it did end up a little bitter and spicy at the end, novice smokers should feel no fear with this cigar, as long as it is paired with something to offset the strength at the end, like a nice aged rum. Stout beer would overrun it, as would cask strength scotch or barrel proof bourbon. All in all a great experience that I look forward to trying again!” -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)

“This was a great cigar to smoke. The profile of it was in line with what I like smoking these days. A soft and delicate smoke at time that morphs into something with a deep and rich character. I would recommend this cigar to anyone who like a lighter smoke that builds into some character. A nice find and I would surely smoke another. ” -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)

“The final third of this cigar really upped the enjoyment factor. It took it from good to very good in my opinion. I have always been a fan of cigars with many transitions, and this one did not let me down and threw in a completely unexpected and unique flavor, that made the cigar a true star. The strength and body stayed right in the medium range and can be enjoyed by anyone. The flavors would go well with morning coffee as well as a lighter bodied beer that won’t overrun it. I am really looking forward to finding out what this cigar is and recommend you try it when the secret is out! ” -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)

I liked this cigar quite a bit. While I was initially worried about that strong mesquite woodsiness overpowering any other flavors that might come my way, the cigar managed – and managed well – to balance that with some other flavor notes that made this smoking experience one that I wouldn’t mind at all revisiting.” -Matt Cade (CADE)
