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: J. Fuego | Connoisseur Originals

“This was a really nice cigar. After the first few draws, the cigar really picked up and the flavors came through. They were rich and full flavors that had a medium body and complexity. The cigar smoked well and was very easy by just lighting and going. I was initially worried about the look of this cigar, but it smoked quite well.” –Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)

Blind Cigar Review: Pura Soul | Maduro Robusto

“With all the different things going on in this blend, there is a unity that is achieved here that is rare in cigar blending. While I was not blown away by this cigar, I was satisfied with the expectations I had based on its stellar appearance. I normally go for really chocolatey, rich cigars. And this was definitely rich in flavor, just in different ways than I am used to. I know it sounds ridiculous to describe a cigar as “smoky” but the flavors taste like they were fresh off the grill. There were also no real touch-ups to speak of. I would definitely smoke this again. Age and a good stout would both be great for this stick.” -Ryan (Youngryan216)

Blind Cigar Review: Padilla | Single Batch Perfecto

“It was full enough to keep me puffing, but mild enough for an adventurous noob to stretch their horizons. I’ve seen one other cigar that looked like this, so maybe I can guess what it is, but I can assure you that I’ll have more of these when the reveal happens!” –Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)

Blind Cigar Review: Ramon Bueso | Olancho Vintage Torpedo

“This is a cigar that I could see myself giving to a novice or a seasoned cigar smoker. The seasoned bloke will enjoy the change in pace of flavors presented on sample 529 and the novice will become introduced into the world of what a premium cigar can offer. This is a cigar that could be smoked and enjoyed after several other offerings as the profile is bold and evident. Construction was top-notch and however many hundred or thousand hands it touched before coming to fruition, it was worth it.” –Matt C. (Big Matt)

Blind Cigar Review: Carlos Toraño | Vault TM-027 Robusto

“Transitions, complexity, nuance… It ain’t necessarily so with this cigar, but the flavor profile is solid and flavorful. Transitions don’t really come with this cigar but flavors are discernible and compatible. It is a good smoke for times when you want the good experience but don’t have to think hard about what the cigar is giving you.” -Matthew T. (A Huge Nerd)

Blind Cigar Review: Villiger | San’Doro Claro Toro

“If you are looking for a well constructed Connecticut shade cigar this might be it. This cigar reminded me of a lighter version of the Quesada 40th Corona Clasica. The fruit on the retrohale mixed in with the pepper and cinnamon on the palate and the sweetness in the back of the throat were all very enjoyable. I easily recommend this cigar if your palate yearns for flavors in the mild strength category with body and complexity that hold up and build throughout the whole experience.” –Matt C. (Big Matt)

Blind Cigar Review: Crux | du Connoisseur No. 2

“I really liked this cigar. My only complaints were the somewhat muddy flavors of the final third and the stick’s overall average smoke production. The flavors of this smoke were very well-blended and played off of one another really well. I really liked the sweetness in the flavor profile because it was never cloying or ordinary — always buttressed by cedar and toast. The performance of this lancero was surprisingly stellar. With a medium strength and perfectly complex body, this stick would pair well with a sweet tea after lunch, or, because of the cigar’s slightly-sweet profile, a fresh vanilla milkshake.” -Ryan (Youngryan216)

Blind Cigar Review: Alec Bradley | Occidental Reserve Corona

“A textbook case of complexity and transitions, starting mild-to-medium and finishing medium-strong while hitting most of the flavors one would expect on the way. Hands down the best BMP smoke I’ve experienced to date.” -Stefan (Stefan)

Quick Cigar Review: Prendelo | Rosa Blanca

Overall this was a great smoke. Very well rounded and balanced with some pepper spice at the start that changed into more of an all spice or cinnamon flavor. There was some very good sweetness to it that was almost caramel like during most parts. The draw and burn were both very good as well. This is probably the only cigar that I can remember smoking where I really noticed the aroma and that the wonderful aroma of the cigar did add to the experience. There is no way someone could smell the aroma of this cigar and not fall in love with it.
