Blind Cigar Review: La Flor Dominicana | La Volcada

“Phew, after smoking this I need a nap… it was strong! Quite a bit of flavors going on at the start but this mellows out into a standard flavor profile as the pure strength of this smoke overwhelmed what other complexities there could have been. If you want a full full full flavored and nic buzz, hey try this out would ya? I enjoyed it, but not something I could smoke quite often!” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: Ventura | Case Study CS/01 Churchill

“I tend toward fuller bodied cigars generally, and much smaller vitolas as a rule, but I enjoyed the hell out of this beast for the full ride. I lit this late on a Saturday morning, and it paired wonderfully with a couple extra cups of dark roasted coffee well into the early afternoon. I’d strongly suggest that you do likewise. ” -John I.

Blind Cigar Review: Dram | Cask No. 3 Churchill

“I really really really enjoyed this cigar. I have no guesses what it is because it hasn’t reminded me of anything I have had before, but if the price is right I will definitely be picking some up. The flavors were changing and complex, especially for a churchill. the flavor profile was right up my alley and if the other reviewers had a similar experience, I expect a high score.” –Emmett (BMP_Emmett)

Blind Cigar Review: Falto | 20th Anniversary Los Procesos

“The second third flavors were well balanced and provided an amazing smoking experience. While the final third initially offered some great flavors, it soon developed a harshness that was difficult to get past. We got off on the wrong foot, however, when the wide open draw prevented the cigar from burning without constant attention in the first third. This most likely led to the acrid notes on the finish.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)

Blind Cigar Review: Herrera Esteli | Norteño Edición Limitada

“I enjoyed the change in personality of this cigar. The beginning was a nice start with a sweet smell and flavor only to give way to a bolder, bit stronger flavoring. A peppery flavor emerged in the middle but dissipated towards the end. Overall, a pleasant experience, none like I have ever experienced.” -Eric (smalls29)

Blind Cigar Review: L’Atelier | Côte d’Or

“Overall, a very good cigar. With such a long cigar as this (roughly 7 inches and 48 ring gauge), the cigar did what I expected; start off with a core set of delicious, well balanced flavors (black pepper, leather, cedar, sweet cream, burnt bread) and build on them as the cigar progressed. I do wish the last third gave either an increase in body and/or more flavors (like the burnt bread starting from the second third). If this was the case, the cigar would have been bumped up to an excellent cigar. I would smoke this again but will pass on purchasing any.” -Jiunn (jliu)
