Blind Cigar Review: Villiger | La Flor De Ynclan Robusto

“Over all, a pleasant smoke with a good spice that hit the roof of your mouth and back of the throat, a good solid dark grey ash, plenty of smoke, very enjoyable after a day of dealing with sub zero temperatures and frozen pipes, it was warming indeed. Overall, a fine experience to cap off the day.” -Joseph S. (Bearded Bastard)

Blind Cigar Review: Black Label Trading Company | Deliverance Porcelain Corona Gorda

“Really enjoyable lighter bodied cigar. I typically prefer full bodied smokes, but this cigar really displayed some typical mild flavors, cream, nuts, herbs and floral notes, but still had enough potency to make it a good experience for fuller cigar fans. This would be accessible for a newcomer to the leaf and still enjoyable for a grizzled vet.” -John I. (John I.)

“This was a good cigar but it was pretty one dimensional. For the full bodied fan, this is a decent pick, but for the Smoker who likes them mild this might be a turn off. I’d smoke another one but won’t run out to pick up a box. ” -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)

Cigar News: Crowned Heads Announces Headley Grange Chamuco LE 2019

The original Headley Grange was inspired by the drum beat on the lead-in to the Led Zeppelin classic “When the Levee Breaks.” The name came from where the track was recorded, a former poorhouse (built in 1795) in East Hampshire, England, named Headley Grange. Last year, Crowned Heads released a limited edition version called “Black Lab LE 2018,” named after the black Labrador Retriever that was hanging around the Headley Grange studio during the recording of Led Zeppelin IV. That blend uses the same fillers as the original Headley Grange, but replaces the wrapper with Connecticut (Habano) maduro. For 2019, Crowned Heads is releasing “Headley Grange Chamuco LE 2019.”

Quick Cigar Review: Don Lino Africa | Robusto

While I have never smoked the original Don Lino I have seen them in catalogs etc. but I can’t make any comparisons. I did enjoy this cigar but it’s not in my top 5 cigars that come from Miami Cigar and Company. The creaminess at the end really brought this cigar home and I do recommend picking up a fiver at the very least.

Blind Cigar Review: Plasencia | Alma del Fuego Candente

“I really enjoyed this cigar. There were plenty of transition to hold my attention with wood, floral, some nuts and quite a bit of milk chocolate. The interesting point to this cigar was the more I smoke it the lighter and creamier it got. I would definitely smoke this again. ” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

Quick Cigar Review: Don Rafa | Habano Robusto

The burn on needed a couple of touch-ups, but it burned pretty evenly. There was very little resistance on the draw which is what I prefer. Construction was top notch in my opinion, there was plenty of ash and smoke and the cigar stayed cool throughout the duration of the smoke. Overall I liked this cigar, it wasn’t mind blowing, but they all can’t be right? Anyway this was a nice smooth smoke from first puff to the last. The cigar never got above a medium in strength and dare I say it was almost mild. There was some creaminess along with a surprisingly cherry sweetness and oak flavors. I would definitely smoke this again.

Blind Cigar Review: Cohiba | Connecticut Robusto

“It seems that lately many of the cigars I have had are good to great through the first two thirds but as I approach the end the flavors become bitter and almost unpalatable. This one did start with a nice coffee flavor with hints of black licorice and cinnamon. There was even a nice after taste like a cinnamon dolce coffee that grew sweet over time. However, as I approached the end the flavors left and I was left with bitter flavors. Like the end of the pot of coffee. I would like this one in my humidor.” -Eric (smalls29)

Blind Cigar Review: La Aurora | 115th Anniversary Robusto

“I really dug this cigar even though it’s not something that’s in my normal flavor profile. While the flavors were consistent throughout they were fairly satisfying. I really enjoyed the saltiness begging me to have something close at hand to drink. The burn was excellent. The ash fell through each third. This cigar was just a solid performer from start to finish.” -Isaac M. (The Nothing)
