Blind Cigar Review: La Barba | Ricochet Cru Mexi-Sol Coronita

“Magnificent cigar. Loved it. Perfect format for me personally, and a flavor profile to match. Big, bold flavors of earth with a world wind tour of coffee, molasses, spices, peppercorns and a bit of an anisette flashing around on the finish. Tremendous construction, nearly flawless. Very extremely well made. Nice progression in terms of strength, starts out very manageable and builds to an agreeable and enjoyable full body by the end. Quite possibly the perfect cigar to follow a big meal. I’m buying boxes. No doubt about it. ” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: La Flor Dominicana | 25th Anniversary

“I enjoyed this quite a lot. Nice change from my usual flavor preferences as well as being out of my comfort zone in terms of vitola. Served as a nice reminder to get out of your comfort zone once in a while. There’s a great big world of cigar opportunities out there and it’s nice to step out of your normal routine from time to time. This cigar stayed pretty much in the medium realm throughout in terms of strength and complexity. The display of really nicely refined baked good flavor, floral qualities, finishing with rich dark woody notes offered a nice range of experiences. Aside from some mid-smoke missteps in construction this was a real joy of a cigar. ” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: Casa Cuevas | La Mandarria

“I knew from the look and smell of this cigar I was in for a treat and it didn’t disappoint. Premium cigars should just preform this well in terms of construction, smoke output, and flavor. I think if there was just a bit more dynamic flavor profile changes it would have put it over the top. Still there’s so much here to like I have to recommend picking up a fiver and just enjoying a terrific cigar. ” -Alan (Eulogy)

Blind Cigar Review: Ventura | Fathers, Friends & Fire – Father-Daughter

“Fantastic smoke. Not as full bodied as I typically prefer, but a really impressive medium bodied experience. Great core flavors of nuts and spice along with blasts of sweetness and floral qualities throughout. Not exactly massive transitions, but there were some nice points of interest along the way.
Really exceptional construction as well. The craftsmanship definitely added to the experience. ” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: Blue Mountain Cigars | El Threesome Toro

“I was honestly surprised by this cigar. When I saw the three different wrappers I was immediately a little suspicious that it was going to be what I call a “hokey” cigar. Gimmick without much to it. I was pleasantly surprised by the consistent good flavor notes and the ability of the cigar to transition fairly seamlessly into the next type of wrapper. It didn’t go from nothing to a beat down and that impressed me more than anything. It kept building in intensity but in a very mild yet noticeable way. This is a great cigar for a herf where everyone can share what they are getting from this unusual cigar configuration. I’d smoke it again!” -Diana (ArmyRN)

Blind Cigar Review: Drew Estate | Liga Privada 10 – Year Aniversario Toro

“This was a really nice practically full bodied cigar with rich flavors and enough nicotine to show you who’s boss… That being said, the flavors were not something to destroy my palate and the finish was short enough that I could have smoked another cigar and still been able to enjoy it. I’m ready to purchase a few of these to keep on hand.” -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
