Blind Cigar Review: Crowned Heads | Four Kicks Maduro Robusto

“While a pretty simple stick with no transitions or changes detected from beginning to end, this was still a really good smoke with plenty of flavor provided, a great flavor profile, and no maintenance required. I’d happily smoke this one again and recommend it to a friend. ” -Dave W. (mdwest)

Blind Cigar Review: HR | Blue Petite Edmundo

“Really good cigar. Solid core flavors, great initial flavor blast from the closed foot, and some interesting transitions along the way. There were a few minor construction issues, it wasn’t tremendously nuanced and it got a little flat toward the end, but there’s still good stuff happening here. I’d smoke a ton of these. ” -John I.

Blind Cigar Review: Partagas | Heritage Robusto

“I really enjoyed this cigar. The flavors were plentiful and full and right in my wheelhouse. The aroma of this cigar is the reason I started to smoke cigars. Something about the smell reminded me of my childhood (I realize this sounds corny, but it is true). I will definitely be smoking more of these in the future and just hope the price tag is kind to the wallet.” -Adam B. (Bushboy)

Blind Cigar Review: Cohiba | Blue Robusto

“My vocabulary of superlatives are inadequate to do this justice. Easily one of the best, and most memorable cigars I’ve ever had. Complex, and really nicely nuanced. It doesn’t really progress through “changes” like a lot of cigars, instead there are all kinds of things happening, all the time.” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: AVO | Syncro South America Ritmo Toro

“In terms of flavor, this would likely be a good introductory cigar for a novice. The flavor profile is light, accessible and pleasant. Creamy, floral and mild mannered with a bit of a kick toward the end. Anyone with an interest in experiencing cigars would likely be impressed. The construction problems would be a drawback for a newcomer however.” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: Black Label Trading Company | Bishop’s Blend Corona Larga

“This cigar was, well, outstanding to me. This is something I could enjoy at any time and could even be something that I’d smoke very regularly. The flavors caught my attention at the beginning and the constant evolution kept me coming back for more. It was a surprisingly long smoking cigar with made it that much better.” -Isaac M. (The Nothing)

Blind Cigar Review: Alpha | Absinthe Infused Claro Half Corona

“I am always looking for that perfect short/winter smoke. When I pulled out this half corona I was excited. I was a bit nervous to do a review on this small of a cigar as it’s really hard to break it up into thirds. The cigar smoked great with some nice balance of flavor to start. As the cigar warmed I did get a bitter taste that came and went. I would pick up some of these for that quick winter smoke!” -Zane G. (Zane)

Blind Cigar Review: Cordoba y Morales | Platino Sumatra: Reposado en Cedro Toro

“Although not my favorite flavors, this was an extremely enjoyable cigar. Long, slow and cool burn that was second to none. The expertise of which this cigar was rolled made it fantastic all around. If the price is right, I could see picking up a fiver of these in the future. I would be interested to see what a little rest could do to the flavors.” –Adam B. (Bushboy)

Blind Cigar Review: Ventura | Archetype Strange Passage Robusto

“This is a cigar that I would gladly smoke again. While the flavors may not have gone through a roller coaster of transitions, they were consistent and well balanced. The retrohale was not bitter or harsh, and really complimented the flavors on the palate. It burned well and produced great smoke. I look forward to finding out about this cigar.” –Matthew T. (A Huge Nerd)

Blind Cigar Review: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust | Sobremesa Short Churchill

“This was a great smoke & right in my wheelhouse. It had plenty of pepper, salt, cream, nuts and some chocolate notes. This is a strong cigar, and probably not something you want as your 1st cigar of the day.” –Mickey T. (irratebass)
