Blind Cigar Review: Iconic Leaf | Recluse Amadeus Habano Reserva Lancero

“If I were to make my own cigar, it would look much like this. It was almost painful to put this cigar down. The savory qualities kept me coming back to it, distracting me from other things (like the kiddo crying about her ball rolling into the street.) It wouldn’t be hard to put this cigar into regular rotation, and when this is posted, I’ll probably find a box. While there wasn’t a whole lot of transition in flavors, what flavors it has keeps you coming back for more.” -Isaac M. (The Nothing)

Blind Cigar Review: Dunbarton T&T | Sobremesa Elegante en Cedro

“All around a great cigar. The flavor profile could have had a bit more of an evolution, but the core flavors were quite enjoyable though out and the retrohale provided a nice change from the standard draw. The creaminess of the smoke could have been a little more consistent as parts of the cigar produced thick creamy clouds but a lot of the time it was a little but thin. Overall a very good cigar that I would definitely smoke again. ” -Alan (Eulogy)

Blind Cigar Review: Carolina Blue | Maduro Toro

“This was a very full bodied cigar. I know that I am more sensitive to nicotine and pepper than most, but it wasn’t overpowering or unpleasant for me. If I hadn’t just eaten before I’m not sure if my opinion would be the same. The flavors were rich but didn’t have a real evolution throughout. If you’re a fan of rich full bodied cigars this is a great choice, but I would need to be prepared to smoke something this powerful again. ” -Alan (Eulogy)

Blind Cigar Review: Nomad | Fin de los Mundos Toro

“Man, this was a fun cigar. I have to blame myself for the performance at the beginning, even if it did feel and look ok. Once I gave it the deeper cut, this cigar was awesome. The savory flavors kept me attached the whole way through. There was a lot more complexity in the first third that seemed to tone down through the rest of the cigar; I really wish it just kept going. ” -Isaac M. (The Nothing)

“As ugly as this cigar was, it goes to show that you can’t judge a book by the cover. The flavors were so good. There was complexity, and yet consistent notes that pulled everything together. I would gladly reach for this cigar again. ” -Matthew T. (A Huge Nerd)

Blind Cigar Review: La Aurora | ADN Dominicano Robusto

“This is a great cigar. It’s certainly mild throughout, but the flavors were on point and is a great cigar for start the day. It reminds me why I enjoy smoking cigars; the relaxing nature, ease of smoking, and enjoyment of taking time out of the day to relax. I would certainly recommend this to someone who enjoys milder smoking experiences. ” -Alan (Eulogy)

“Overall a very pleasant stick. Once it started mellowing out a little bit the cigar became a very nice smoke. This is one I’ll be looking at more closely after the reveal, and would consider a box purchase on if the price is right. ” -Dave W. (mdwest)

Blind Cigar Review: Toraño | Exodus Robusto (2016)

“This is a very good cigar that could be smoked after your son’s bar mitzvah or after you knock-out some asshole that drank you beer, I digress. Any cigar guy would enjoy this cigar as rich tobacco is very evident on the exhale and palate. The retro had a touch of sweetness that lingered with the cream and grass. That being said if you sit back and pay attention to this cigar you can pick up the nuances in this blend. This is a classic blend and I wouldn’t be surprised if the blender is a descendant of a family rich in tobacco and cigar culture. If the price is right, this premium cigar offering box-worthy.” -Matt C. (Big Matt)
