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)

Blind Cigar Review – Revisited: Royal Gold | Gold Strike Churchill

“Overall, I did enjoy this cigar, but I’m not sure I would seek more. It was just a little boring and mild for my taste. Given the notes of toast, leather, spice and green color, I’m pretty sure this was a Cameroon wrapper, but not my favorite by any means. I would smoke another, but don’t think I would buy one.” -Emmett (rhetorik)

Blind Cigar Review: La Gloria Cubana | Natural Churchill

“The flavors were enjoyable, strength within reason and construction was spot-on. What more could one person ask for in a cigar? It might not have been deadnuts center of my wheelhouse in terms of the flavors, but they were quite enjoyable nonetheless. I really liked this cigar.” -Kip (Half Ashed)

Blind Cigar Review: Hammer + Sickle | Hermitage No. 1 Churchill

“I was thoroughly pleased to find that this was a great cigar, especially considering the cigars sheer size. The first two thirds were top-notch. Lots of very pleasing flavors, perfect draw and lots of smoke. The final third, though still great in smoke, burn and ash, was a bit lower on my scale. Still pleasant to smoke, just the added bitterness dropped it down for me. Not surprising though, since this was the end of a very large cigar. I would really like to see how this cigar compares in a smaller vitola.” -Jerad (Cigar Federation)
