Blind Cigar Review: HVC | Edicion Especial 2018 Toro

“This was an interesting cigar. I started out mild/medium and kept ramping up in strength were it even caused a bit of a nicotine buzz. The main flavor component was wood & spice, there was a nice floral and cream on the retro in the beginning then turned to more spice, until the final third which brought heavy cinnamon on the retro very unusual. ” -Mickey T.

Blind Cigar Review: Bespoke | Super Belicoso

“This was a supremely flavored smoked with plenty of variations and flavor notes that gave me a very relaxing experience; I only wish it wasn’t so large! Definitely recommend giving this big guy a chance as you may fall in love, especially if there are smaller size options. Two thumbs up!!” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: Bespoke | Grand Cafe Lancero

“I liked this a ton. Great flavors in one of my favorite vitolas. Pretty powerful cigar, but there was still a nice range of flavors, and pretty dramatic transitions from yeasty sweetness to dark rich coffee. Only drawback was the rapid burn which seemed to be due to being rather under-filled, at least in the early stages of this smoke. I’d still buy a whole bunch more. ” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: Partagas | Legend Corona Extra Leyenda

“Exceptional smoke in my estimation. Reminded me quite a bit of a Padron 1926. Big flavor, powerful, lots of smoke. Great flavors of chocolate with some background spice and sweetness. Not really a lot of transitional flavors, but the core of this was so enjoyable I really wasn’t interested in going anywhere else. I enjoyed every second of this, and I’m ready to go buy a bunch more. ” -John I. (John I.)

“I really enjoyed this cigar. It had just enough transitions to keep me interested and just kept getting better as I went along. There was a lot of creamy coco, brown sugar, leather, hay, and woodiness notes that all worked together in a really nice way. I would suggest trying one for yourself. ” -Jeff (ExpendableYouth)

Blind Cigar Review: AVO | Signature Belicoso 30 Years

“This was a very flavorful, well executed, mild cigar. The constant reminder of sweetness paired with the various other notes made this cigar a pleasure to smoke. While it did not have many flavor descriptors, what it offered was a great experience that I would definitely revisit in the future when I am in the mood for something milder and elegant.” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: Drew Estate | Liga Privada H99 Toro

“This was a thoroughly enjoyable smoke that I could recommend to anyone that enjoys medium bodied and flavorful cigars. The flavor profile of light brown sugar, spices, and figs were very enjoyable as they each took turns highlighting themselves. Definitely a box where the smoke that I would buy multiples of!” -John A. (Bostoneo)

“I really liked this cigar. It performed beautifully, it gave me lots of sweet chocolate flavors with a bit of white pepper and some baking spices. It never got above a medium in strength, and I even caught myself a few times looking at the cigar and saying out loud “Wow this is good.” Would definitely smoke more, if not purchase a box. ” -Mickey T.

Blind Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua | Cinco Décadas Diadema

“The most impressive portion of this cigar in terms of flavor came at the end, but combined with the top notch construction leads me to rate this a bit higher than I might. It burned really nicely for much longer than I usually nurse a cigar, and I’m a fool for a big ol perfecto. ” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: Iconic Leaf | Recluse Amadeus Habano Reserva Lancero

“If I were to make my own cigar, it would look much like this. It was almost painful to put this cigar down. The savory qualities kept me coming back to it, distracting me from other things (like the kiddo crying about her ball rolling into the street.) It wouldn’t be hard to put this cigar into regular rotation, and when this is posted, I’ll probably find a box. While there wasn’t a whole lot of transition in flavors, what flavors it has keeps you coming back for more.” -Isaac M. (The Nothing)

Blind Cigar Review: Macanudo | Inspirado Red Robusto

“If you could roll up an espresso stout into a cigar, it would probably be a lot like this one. Cocoa nibs and coffee permeated the cigar from start to finish, with little else going on other than an increase of body. The flavors were good, but there was little to keep me interested for long.” –Isaac M. (The Nothing)
