Blind Cigar Review: Hiram & Solomon | Traveling Man Toro Score 88%

Blind Cigar Review: Hiram & Solomon | Traveling Man Toro

”Overall this was a decent Cigar that would be appropriate for any time of the day regardless of how many you have already had. While not being terribly complex or diverse flavor profile, it did have a good consistent flavor throughout the session. I found it was hard to hold an ash as it consistently wanted to fall into my lap around the 1 inch mark. Smoke it again? Probably. ” –John A. (Bostoneo)

“In the beginning I was quite impressed with this cigar and enjoyed it thoroughly. In fact, I had a hard time putting this cigar down for long. However, it didn’t finish well. My hope is that this was a one off as I would definitely try it again if others had a different experience. I so enjoyed the first two thirds of the cigar so much, that I’m probably scoring this cigar a little high overall. ” -Isaac M. (The Nothing)

Blind Cigar Review: Home Roll | DBL Press No. 1157

“Good smoke. For someone who enjoys milder cigars that aren’t tremendously challenging, this would be a nice cigar. Construction was on point aside from some initial draw concerns.
Flavor wise it wasn’t a big show, but if you like nice flowery cigars, this is definitely one. Probably wouldn’t be bad with coffee on a Sunday morning.” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: Crowned Heads | Headley Grange Black Dog Dobles

“This was a not a flavor profile that fit my wheelhouse. Having said that, for someone who likes hazelnut and some black licorice this will be a decent cigar for them. I didn’t like the bitterness of the cigar but it did progress into a tartness that wasn’t distasteful to me. I would have thought the cigar would be stronger than it was given the types of flavors but it remained a medium to full, on the more medium side for me. A decent smoke for a specific palette.” –Diana (ArmyRN)

“Great smoke. Amazing construction which has definitely contributed to the experience. Deep rich leather and nuttiness on bold display here. It’s a flavor profile that I enjoyed a lot although there wasn’t a lot of transitional stuff going on. I’d be happy to smoke these by the truckload, and I’d nub them every time. ” -John I. (John I.)

“I tend toward fuller bodied cigars generally, and much smaller vitolas as a rule, but I enjoyed the hell out of this beast for the full ride. I lit this late on a Saturday morning, and it paired wonderfully with a couple extra cups of dark roasted coffee well into the early afternoon. I’d strongly suggest that you do likewise. ” -John I.

“Very solid cigar across the board. It won’t change your life or make you feel as if you’d been touched by the hand of God, but it is a well constructed and tasty smoke. It doesn’t require much effort to tease out and identify exotic flavors, or significant transitions, but what is there is very up front, and enjoyable. ” -John I. (John I.)

“It’s hard for me to assign a top rating to any cigar, and I try to reserve the highest mark for something really wondrous. This is about as close to cigar perfection for me as I can imagine. Big bold flavors with a lot of strength. Packs a punch but the potency was never over the top and the overall balance between strength and flavor was really thoroughly impressive. ” -John I.

“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)

“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)
