Editorial: Home Roll Cigar Series | Award Winners

I must admit, when I approached the home rollers on the BOTL web forum about a friendly contest, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I learned that coordinating a series of this type is a big logistical challenge for which I was unprepared.  In the end, it was a good experience for me.  I hope it was also a good experience for those who participated, and especially our readers.

Blind Cigar Review: MLB Cigar Ventures | David P. Ehrlich Tremont Toro

“This was a really nice cigar. Definitely a fist cigar of the day while sitting out on your deck with your morning coffee as the sun rises up.

There was plenty of walnut flavors and just a touch of spice and black pepper. I would say this was a mild to medium plus cigar, and there was just enough sweetness that kept popping up and wasn’t in your face. ” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

Blind Cigar Review: Caldwell | Hit and Run Corona Gorda

“I was very surprised by this stick. After the light aromas on the prelight, the cigar was full of great flavors. It was very cubanesque from the look and vitola to the flavor. I would love to smoke this in the morning with a cup of coffee. The stick had a couple of faults but was easy to overlook because the flavor was so good. I even nubbed this thing all the way down.” -Matt (Mattehh)

“This was a nice mild to medium smoke, which only got into the straight medium in the final third. The cigar was very smooth with a small sweetness that held my attention that resembled marshmallow. I highly recommend this cigar as you first smoke of the day with morning coffee. I would like to smoke more of these.” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

Blind Cigar Review: Emilio | LJZ Robusto

“This cigar was mediocre in my opinion. There was not much complexity. Smooth notes of spice and hay were the cornerstones, but the char crept in and took over through the second and final third of the cigar. A little age might do this cigar some good, so do not give up entirely on this stick. It might grow into something very good.” -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)

Blind Cigar Review: Davidoff | Master Selection 2008

“This was a thoroughly enjoyable stick with its strong points being the first two thirds. Whoever blended this cigar meant to create something special with a very flavorful mix of tobaccos that pleased my pallete immensely. I can only hope the price point on this stick is reasonable so I can stock up!” -John A. (John A.)

Blind Cigar Review: Serino | Wayfarer Corona Gorda

“This was a really nice cigar from start to finish. Normally I’m the guy who wants the full strength and full bodied cigar that smacks me full in the face. On occasion, however, I find a cigar that reminds me of the lighter side of things and just how enjoyable that can be… This was one of those cigars. A nice mix of flavor coupled with superb construction really made my day… It definitely is getting my stamp of approval.” -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
