Quick Cigar Review: New Orleans Cigar Factory Plantation Reserve

I dug this cigar, there was a lot going on with it. I get patchouli, wood, chocolate and gourmet coffee flavors throughout the entire cigar. The draw was a little more snug than I like, but no complaints. It burned very well. I only needed to touch it up a couple of times. Really nice construction…the cigar burned cool and only ramped up in strength on the final 3rd.

Blind Cigar Review: Black Works Studio | S&R Corona Gorda

“Good smoke. I definitely enjoyed the earlier phases more than the finish. The early sweet and creamy profile was really nice, and the spices dancing around the background were a lot of fun. Worked really well for a lazy late Sunday smoke with my fifth or sixth cup of coffee. ” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: Partagas | Legend Corona Extra Leyenda

“Exceptional smoke in my estimation. Reminded me quite a bit of a Padron 1926. Big flavor, powerful, lots of smoke. Great flavors of chocolate with some background spice and sweetness. Not really a lot of transitional flavors, but the core of this was so enjoyable I really wasn’t interested in going anywhere else. I enjoyed every second of this, and I’m ready to go buy a bunch more. ” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: Ohana | Friends & Family Corona Gorda

“This was a wonderful experience. The flavors were nice and constant and never strayed in to bitterness and yuck. The cedar flavor was there from begging to end. The best part was the slightly sweet taste left on the palate. The aroma was that of a cedar log burning in the fireplace that made this one even more enjoyable. Definitely one for the humidor. ” -Eric (smalls29)
