Quick Cigar Review: Arturo Fuente | Opus X 20th Anniversary Father & Son Score 95%

Quick Cigar Review: Arturo Fuente | Opus X 20th Anniversary Father & Son

This cigar was so much better after a couple months of rest. When I first smoked it, I knew it was good, but not as special as I hoped. This time it was special. This 20th Anniversary Opus is nothing like the regular opus. It is medium bodied and nuanced, not in your face strength. The construction was almost perfect and the flavors were balanced. I only look forward to how this will age years on. Definitely recommend if you can find them.

Blind Cigar Review: Southern Draw | Firethorn Toro

“With a lot of cigars I find the cedar to be a bit heavy handed, not so with this one. The transition from a mature cedar to slightly charred then to a young sweeter one was very nice. The addition of hay, grass and leather paired well with the background flavors of nuts, coffee and cocoa. This cigar certainly offered me a very pleasant smoking experience.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)

Blind Cigar Review: Don Lucas | Family Reserve Maduro

“This was just a beautiful cigar to look at and even hold in my hand. Looks alone this cigar would be killer. Unfortunately I had some draw issues on this one. Normally I would have taken the draw poker to it but since it was a review I wanted to smoke it as is. I did enjoy the flavors I got throughout they were just very muted and in the end became bitter. I would love to try this cigar again and hope for better construction.” -Zane G. (Zane)

Blind Cigar Review: El Artista | Big Papi

“Overall this was a very good cigar experience. I would recommend this cigar to the 20 year old cigar aficionado or 80 year old novice, it is that of an all around good cigar experience with flavors that excite the palate from start to finish. As for me, if this cigar is available in the robusto vitola, I will be grabbing 10 of them for my personal humidor.” -Matt C. (Big Matt)

Quick Cigar Review: Jas Sum Kral | Zlatno Sonce Toro

This was an excellent cigar. It was a Connecticut, which I usually don’t gravitate towards, but as I said before, this is not your typical Connecticut. There is TONS of flavor and many transitions to keep your attention. The cigar was very smooth, and could be enjoyed anytime of the day not just with your coffee or as your 1st smoke of the day, but I will recommend you smoke it on a fresh palate in order to taste all the flavors this stick throws at you. My hat’s off to Riste on making a wonderful smoke.

Blind Cigar Review: Herrera Esteli | Toro Especial Tubo

“This cigar offered up a nice balanced mix of cedar and coffee throughout. Some cocoa, orange zest and leather kept me engaged while the bookend pepper was a nice addition. Maybe not a special occasion smoke, it’s certainly one to keep on hand.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)

Quick Cigar Review: Sensei’s Sensational Sarsaparilla II

Full disclosure… I have been a member of Cigar Dojo for a few years now. As a result of my time on the Dojo app, I have made some great friends and learned a lot about this hobby that we all love so much. When the original Sarsaparilla cigar was released in the Fall of 2014, I was excited to try it because I was already a big fan of the cigars coming out of the La Zona factory from Erik Espinosa. The original Sarsaparilla cigar proved to be another winner, and I still consider that to be one of the best cigars to have ever been crafted at La Zona.

Blind Cigar Review: Villiger | San’Doro Colorado Toro

“The first two thirds showed some promise, although a bit one dimensional. The creamy leather and oak combination was very enjoyable. The final third, however, was my samples unraveling. A harsh cedar and tight draw almost had me tossing this one. Based on other reviewers experiences, this might be a candidate for the golf course.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)

Blind Cigar Review: E.P. Carrillo | Short Run 2016

“Part of the joy of a blind review is finding out later what it is I was smoking. Well, I am very excited to find out on this one because I may be buying a box. The flavor and aroma combination was fantastic and interesting. The burn was incredible. The smoke output was HUGE. If it is a cigar in my price range, I will be stocking up.” –Matthew T. (A Huge Nerd)
