Blind Cigar Review: Fratello | Oro Robusto

“The beginning was very nice and enjoyable. The predominant flavors were wood and nuts. There were hints of sweet cherry wood and some earthy tones. The flavors remained nicely balanced up unto about the final third. At this point it became bitter and sour. I consider this one an old fashioned cigar. I think it would pair nicely with a scotch or spiced rum.” –Eric (smalls29)

Blind Cigar Review: Davidoff | 702 2000

“This one was really different, and that is a good thing. No more of the same old flavor profile here. Some unique flavors mixed with a great burn and tons of smoke output, that makes this a cigar I want to try again. I will be glad to find out what this one is.” -Matthew T. (A Huge Nerd)

Blind Cigar Review: HR | Claro 109

“This sample was not only a joy to look at but was also pleasant journey to smoke. This cigar presented creamy cedar, citrus, roasted nuts, sweet fruit, doughy bread, hay, and a touch of cinnamon. In addition to that.. through the nose was espresso, dark chocolate notes, hay, earth, and black pepper. If you have the time to smoke a cigar for 2+ hours grab a few of these, and however many hands this blend took to come to fruition was well worth the work.” -Matt C. (Big Matt)

Blind Cigar Review: Don Lucas | Family Reserve Maduro

“This was just a beautiful cigar to look at and even hold in my hand. Looks alone this cigar would be killer. Unfortunately I had some draw issues on this one. Normally I would have taken the draw poker to it but since it was a review I wanted to smoke it as is. I did enjoy the flavors I got throughout they were just very muted and in the end became bitter. I would love to try this cigar again and hope for better construction.” -Zane G. (Zane)

Blind Cigar Review: La Aurora | 110th Anniversary Cameroon Cetros

“Ok…I like lonsdale and Lancero cigars but this was a very good cigar. It had depth of flavor and was very interesting. Construction was excellent, and the performance was really exemplary. I will gladly recommend this to anyone who is ready to move from mild to medium. Now to find out what it is so I can buy a box!” -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)

Blind Cigar Review: Warped | Villa Sombra Mojitos

“Regardless of the chocolate flavors disappearing, this was still an enjoyable cigar. The entire experience was like drinking a mocha. You start off with wonderful flavors of semi sweet chocolate and coffee only to have the chocolate slowly fade away. Over time the coffee became stronger and in the end you are left with the bitter coffee flavor and after-taste. I would love to have this one again and smoke with a mocha or flavored latte.” -Eric (smalls29)

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)

Blind Cigar Review: Fable | Fourth Prime Doc

“This cigar, based on looks alone, was one that I was anticipating. The best part is that it didn’t disappoint. Fuller flavored. Fuller bodied. Just what I was expecting. The flavor of this cigar was spot on, for me, to the point that I was easily able to forgive the burn problems. I found that this cigar lighted to be smoked, and not set down to rest, which was fine because I didn’t want to put it down.” –Isaac M. (The Nothing)

Blind Cigar Review: La Flor Dominicana | Reserva Especial Belicoso

“I’ll start off by stating that I am not a fan of mild cigars…They generally just don’t keep my attention. This was an exception. The occasional flavor transitions, plus the excellent initial flavors were interesting and worthy of my time. This is something that I would highly recommend to any new smoker, of someone looking for a change of pace. Also, a perfect way to start a day. The reveal of this one will be interesting…. This cigar is one where the totality of the experience is greater than each of it’s parts…well done.” –Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)

Blind Cigar Review: Villiger | San’Doro Colorado Toro

“The first two thirds showed some promise, although a bit one dimensional. The creamy leather and oak combination was very enjoyable. The final third, however, was my samples unraveling. A harsh cedar and tight draw almost had me tossing this one. Based on other reviewers experiences, this might be a candidate for the golf course.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)

Blind Cigar Review: Montecristo | Pilotico No. 2

“This cigar was never in my wheelhouse, but I am happy I got the opportunity to smoke it. This cigar expands the palate from prelight to the nub of what a premium cigar can offer in terms of flavor. Maybe my palate is broken.. I have no idea, but the exhale/retro was interesting delivering the wet wood, peat, earth, citrus, salt and flighty cream. I would happily have a few of these on hand to enjoy with some rye whiskey.” -Matt C. (Big Matt)
