Blind Cigar Review: Black Works Studio | Boondock Saint Corona Larga

“It’s hard for me to assign a top rating to any cigar, and I try to reserve the highest mark for something really wondrous. This is about as close to cigar perfection for me as I can imagine. Big bold flavors with a lot of strength. Packs a punch but the potency was never over the top and the overall balance between strength and flavor was really thoroughly impressive. ” -John I.

This is a great cigar for either an intermediate or experienced cigar smoker.” -Diana (ArmyRN)

Blind Cigar Review: Caldwell | Hit and Run Corona Gorda

“I was very surprised by this stick. After the light aromas on the prelight, the cigar was full of great flavors. It was very cubanesque from the look and vitola to the flavor. I would love to smoke this in the morning with a cup of coffee. The stick had a couple of faults but was easy to overlook because the flavor was so good. I even nubbed this thing all the way down.” -Matt (Mattehh)

Blind Cigar Review: Serino | Wayfarer Corona Gorda

“This was a really nice cigar from start to finish. Normally I’m the guy who wants the full strength and full bodied cigar that smacks me full in the face. On occasion, however, I find a cigar that reminds me of the lighter side of things and just how enjoyable that can be… This was one of those cigars. A nice mix of flavor coupled with superb construction really made my day… It definitely is getting my stamp of approval.” -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)

Quick Cigar Review: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust | Sobremesa Corona Grande

This cigar seemed to come with a lot of hype. Wow, did it deliver. From the subtle changes back and forth in the flavor profile to the smooth draw, this cigar just exceeded expectations in every aspect. I smoked the corona vitola and my only concern was that it did not last longer. Get these if you can. I know I will.
