Blind Cigar Review: Emilio | AF Suave Toro

“Although I’ve got nothing bad to say about this cigar, it just didn’t do much for me. Even in mild sticks, I like more complexity and richness in the smoke texture. This didn’t have much of it. Probably not a bad smoke for someone new to cigars or someone that likes mild, light bodied cigars. Not really for me though. I’ll pass on smoking another.” -Brian (B-daddy)

Blind Cigar Review: Rodrigo | La Fortaleza Forte

“This is a big after dinner flavor bomb/smoke bomb. I dug it and I’d definitely smoke it again. I’d recommend it to anyone that likes medium full to full body and rich flavorful smoke. I think I may have a couple five packs resting in the tupperdor. Now I can’t wait to try them.” -Brian (B-daddy)

Blind Cigar Review: Ezra Zion | Eminence Belicoso Gran Toro

“This was an interesting cigar that hit me in just the right mood. I was quite pleased with my beverage pairing and found the deep flavors of the smoke to be quite complementary to the chocolate stout. I don’t think I would choose this cigar as the first of the day because it’s almost like a meal in itself…a hearty steak meal, with all the fixings! Quite good and quite satisfying.” -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)

Blind Cigar Review: Emilio | La Musa Melete Lancero

“As long a smoke as this cigar was, I nubbed it and wished that it wouldn’t stop. You just can’t beat a cigar with a great flavor profile and a great burn. If I had another one in the humidor, I would have went and gotten it to smoke it immediately. Someone send me another one or box! Seriously, I will be looking to pick some up on the reveal.” -Jason (bigslowrock)

Blind Cigar Review: Los Regalos | Quetzal Toro

“What a pleasurable milder smoke with lots of subtle changes within it’s original profile. The balance of spice and sweetness was close to perfect, never becoming harsh or bitter. Often the initial pepper blast takes over, but this cigar seemed to keep all flavors balanced and working well together. I would grab a box in a heartbeat.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)

Blind Cigar Review: Oliva | Saison Toro

“This cigar was a flavor bomb throughout. It kept me puffing almost to the point where it began burning hotter than normal. It’s not the absolute best I’ve had, but it’s one that’s definitely in my wheelhouse. I’d more than happy to enjoy another one (or three) of these!” -Milton (mjohnsoniii)

Blind Cigar Review: 1502 | Emerald Toro

“This stick took me for a ride that I didnt expect. Prior to lighting it I thought I would be smoking something medium to full in strength, with earthy qualities and that the stick would be very much “in your face”. What I got instead was a fairly complex stick that was closer to the mild side of the strength equation with light, but pronounced flavors. Instead of an after an evening meal type smoke, I ended up with a cigar that I think would be extremely nice with a morning cup of coffee. I’ll likely be seeking more of these out once the reveal is done.” -Dave (mdwest)

Blind Cigar Review: HVC | The City First Selection 52

“The cigar provides a very easy and pleasant experience. There is not much to think about and in the same vein I wish I did! The complexity is quite lacking with a very unilateral leather and tobacco profile. I will do this one again but probably will not go out looking for one.” -Sandeep (Djangos)

Blind Cigar Review: Chinnock Cellars | Pressoir Toro

“This was an overall excellent cigar in my honest opinion. The flavors were constantly changing and there was never a dull moment. It wasn’t a “pretty” one, but the flavor profile more than made up for its looks (or lack thereof). I’m excited to see what it is.” -Milton (mjohnsoniii)

Blind Cigar Review: Padilla | Reserva Habano Torpedo

“The initial pepper was nice, but faded away too quickly. The oak flavor was nice and the transition to some creaminess was enjoyable. The retrohale transitions were nice as well. This is something I could see smoking again, but not something I would chase after.” -Aaron (aaron72)

Blind Cigar Review: Hoja de Flores Robusto

“Overall this was a really great cigar. The flavors were outstanding and overall the construction was great. There were some nice transitions in the flavor and the first two thirds were expertly balanced. If time would improve the final third, this could be a contender for cigar of the year.” -Emmett (rhetorik)
