Blind Cigar Review: San Pedro De Macoris | Ecuador Robusto

“I really liked this cigar right from the first glance down to the nub. It was good looking, tasty, well constructed and had enough complexity to keep me interested and happy all the way through. This would be a great morning cigar for me but also a “go to” at any time for a nice well-balanced and relaxing smoke.” –Diana (ArmyRN)

Cigar News: Casa Cuevas Announces La Mandarria

Casa Cuevas Cigars has announced a Limited Edition cigar called La Mandarria which translates to “The Sledgehammer”. Three months ago the Casa Cuevas warehouse was broken into and nearly all their inventory was stolen. They got away with more than 25,000 cigars, including the planned Limited Edition Flacos which they were unable to release. The perpetrators used sledgehammers to break through the exterior wall, hence the name La Mandarria.

Blind Cigar Review: Illusione | OneOff Corona Gorda

“This was a great tasting cigar front to back. Rich flavors of oak, leather, tobacco with hints of vanilla that rear their head throughout the experience make this quite the delightful smoke. Flavors are rich, distinct, and spot on… this is a perfect substitute for one of my favorite blends, Epernay. Hoard these, they will age well!” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: Cubariqueño | Protocol Official Misconduct Toro

“This one ran the spectrum of boldness. It started out with a medium bold taste that grew very bold and biter and then became mild in the final third. I was happy with the consistent flavors of wood and nut throughout which helped maintain some of the enjoyment of this smoke. The second third saw some bitterness come in but it wasn’t so bitter that I wanted to out it down. I was surprised by how it mellowed towards the end. Still, all in all, a very nice experience.” -Eric (smalls29)

Blind Cigar Review: Cornelius & Anthony | The Gent Robusto

“Even though this one finished with a bitter taste, overall I still find this a good cigar. The beginning was promising with notes of hickory and sweet cherry, the cherry faded in to the back ground over time moving to a bold and bitter taste. All in all the flavors held for the most part and finished strong and bitter. To me all of this gave the cigar some good personality.” -Eric (smalls29)

Quick Cigar Review: La Aurora | Hors d’Age Toro

In all honestly, I don’t think I would have liked this as newbie cigar smoker. Rich aged tobacco wasn’t something that I was super into when I started smoking and it took time for me to appreciate the nuance and quality. That being said, this cigar has that rich aged tobacco flavor as its main and dominate flavor though out and depending on how much you personally enjoy it will greatly influence your thought of it. As far as burn, construction, and draw they were all top notch. Burned cool and consistence the entire time and the ash looked like stacked nickles. The smoke output was a bit lackluster to me. I enjoy a creamier and thicker smoke myself but it was far from thin. Certainly worth a try but keep a few hours free because it took just under three hours to finish this beast.
