Blind Cigar Review: La Barba | Ricochet Cru Mexi-Sol Coronita Score 95%

Blind Cigar Review: La Barba | Ricochet Cru Mexi-Sol Coronita

“Magnificent cigar. Loved it. Perfect format for me personally, and a flavor profile to match. Big, bold flavors of earth with a world wind tour of coffee, molasses, spices, peppercorns and a bit of an anisette flashing around on the finish. Tremendous construction, nearly flawless. Very extremely well made. Nice progression in terms of strength, starts out very manageable and builds to an agreeable and enjoyable full body by the end. Quite possibly the perfect cigar to follow a big meal. I’m buying boxes. No doubt about it. ” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: La Flor Dominicana | 25th Anniversary

“I enjoyed this quite a lot. Nice change from my usual flavor preferences as well as being out of my comfort zone in terms of vitola. Served as a nice reminder to get out of your comfort zone once in a while. There’s a great big world of cigar opportunities out there and it’s nice to step out of your normal routine from time to time. This cigar stayed pretty much in the medium realm throughout in terms of strength and complexity. The display of really nicely refined baked good flavor, floral qualities, finishing with rich dark woody notes offered a nice range of experiences. Aside from some mid-smoke missteps in construction this was a real joy of a cigar. ” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: Casa Cuevas | La Mandarria

“I knew from the look and smell of this cigar I was in for a treat and it didn’t disappoint. Premium cigars should just preform this well in terms of construction, smoke output, and flavor. I think if there was just a bit more dynamic flavor profile changes it would have put it over the top. Still there’s so much here to like I have to recommend picking up a fiver and just enjoying a terrific cigar. ” -Alan (Eulogy)

Blind Cigar Review: La Aurora | 115th Anniversary Robusto

“I really dug this cigar even though it’s not something that’s in my normal flavor profile. While the flavors were consistent throughout they were fairly satisfying. I really enjoyed the saltiness begging me to have something close at hand to drink. The burn was excellent. The ash fell through each third. This cigar was just a solid performer from start to finish.” -Isaac M. (The Nothing)

Blind Cigar Review: Cubariqueño | Protocol Sir Robert Peel Natural Toro

“Overall this was a decent smoke with the first half being my favorite. Rich buttery notes dominated the profile throughout and provided ample amounts of deliciousness for nearly and hour and a half. Recommended for those who enjoy mild and medium bodied sticks, this would be a good staple to add to almost any aficionados humidor. ” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: A.C.E. Prime | Luciano The Traveler

“This was a dynamite cigar! I couldn’t have asked for a better smoking experience. The cigar had a lot going on in the flavor dept. First I was greeted with walnuts/pistachio which then moved to caramel, wood, earth/dirt and ended up with a sweetness that coated my lips. I will be seeking these out once I find out what it was. YOU SHOULD TOO.” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

Quick Cigar Review: Drew Estate | ACID 20

It does everything so well it’s hard to find a fault with it. If I’m being nit-picky, it smoked a little fast for it’s size. The smoke output was phenomenal, the burn was almost razor sharp though out, the draw was perfect, and the flavor profile evolved all the way through. I’m not a flavored cigar fan but I’m a fan of this one. I remember smoking this at IPCPR and feeling that it was in the top 5 new cigars at the show. It was actually the best cigar that I smoked that day and was teased relentlessly for it. Trying it for a second time now, it holds up the previous experience. Honestly, give it a try and be open to the experience and I think you’ll be very surprised at how good this actually is.
