Blind Cigar Review: Diesel | Grind (2017) Robusto Score 91%

Blind Cigar Review: Diesel | Grind (2017) Robusto

“Pretty solid effort. A really darkly attractive cigar with big rich flavors in the earthy/woody range with some interesting side notes of herbs and spices coming in at a few points. I’d love to stick a box of these in the back of my cabinet and forget about them for a year or two. I’ll bet they really sing with a little age. ” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: Dunbarton T&T | Todos Las Dias Half Churchill

“This cigar was great in my opinion. A well-built cigar that was very easy to work with. Simple cut, light, and smoke made this cigar very nice. The flavor profile was delicious. There was not a lot of complexity, but the overall smoke and aroma was absolutely pleasant. If I could make one suggestion, I would say to pre-cut the cigar and let it sit for at least 30 minutes. This will allow an ample amount of rest time and will get the remainder of the harshness out of it, so that it will burn and taste great all the way through. Enjoy these, they are worth the buy.” -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)

“This was an interesting cigar with many flavor shifts. I wish the final third would have stayed cool enough to finish because I feel that this has a chance to be something special. I’ll definitely revisit this again once the reveal is complete.” -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)

Blind Cigar Review: Hoyo | La Amistad Silver Robusto

“I was a little concerned on the cold draw before lighting, but this cigar was really pretty good. Good flavor combinations, and lots of smoke output. It did burn a bit on the fast side, but the flavors that came throughout the smoking experience were tasty and made sense together. I would smoke this again.” -Matthew T. (A Huge Nerd)

Blind Cigar Review: Camacho | Nicaraguan Barrel-Aged Toro

“I don’t always reach for the cigar with the herb and spice notes, however this one was very enjoyable. The flavors stayed away from an overwhelming spice flavor, and just teased the palate with welcomed flavors. Overall this was a great smoke that will be enjoyed again after the reveal. The strength allows this cigar to be enjoyed by the novice and the connoisseur. ” -Adam B. (Bushboy)

Blind Cigar Review: Hoyo | La Amistad by AJ Fernandez Robusto

“Overall this was a good smoke. I think this would not be a good first cigar of the day, but if you had a full day of smoking this would be a nice 2nd or 3rd stick of the day. Just beware it does pick up the spice in the final 1/3rd and through the whole 2nd third, but becomes a nice pleasant smoke at the end.” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

Blind Cigar Review: Villiger | San’Doro Claro Toro Revisited

“I am not a big fan of overly mild to mild-medium cigars. This one made me change my outlook. From the initial appearance and feel to the smoke throughout each third, this cigar was definitely one for everyone. Whether smoking in the morning with coffee, lunchtime with a soda or lemonade, or after dinner with some scotch or bourbon, this cigar will deliver a tremendous experience to enjoy. Grab these and just sit back and relax.” -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)

Blind Cigar Review: La Flor Dominicana | Air Bender Maduro Chisel

“I wanted to rate this cigar higher. The beginning and middle had some really nice flavors coming through. The smoke output on each draw was plentiful. The oily wrapper and chisel tip made it easy to smoke. All that, and then the final third hit a brick wall. Relights galore and harsh flavors just made the overall rating from me fall off a cliff. I would hope this stick was an anomaly in an otherwise solid blend. If I had stopped after the second third I would be happy.” -Matthew T. (A Huge Nerd)
