Blind Cigar Review: United Cigar | Classic Cuban Torpedo Score 91%

Blind Cigar Review: United Cigar | Classic Cuban Torpedo

“While the cigar’s appearance didn’t impress me at all initially, this was a clear cut case of never judging a book by its cover. The cigar provided a wide array of flavors and transitions and the end result was a highly enjoyable cigar from start to finish. I would definitely smoke it again.” -Matt Cade (CadeTNCC)

Blind Cigar Review: Oliva | Cain FF Nub 464 T

“I enjoyed the flavors, the aroma was pleasant, it put off a ton of smoke. The size is good for a relaxing morning cup of coffee, and the flavors themselves pair well with coffee. I would have given it a higher rating, but due to the hole in the wrapper, it caused the draw to be weird, hardly getting any smoke, while smoke poured off the end like a tire fire.” -Joseph S. (Bearded Bastard)

Blind Cigar Review: Southern Draw | 300 Manos Torpedo

“As a fan of heavier, more full bodied cigars, this was a nice change of pace for me on this cold winter day. Loved the citrus and oak notes I got from this, especially on the retrohale. Would I buy a box, probably not but its definitely worth a fiver. Enjoyable overall. ” -Kevin J. (maninblack77)

Quick Cigar Review: Mbombay | Classic Torpedo

This is a very good entry cigar into the MBombay portfolio. There is a lot of flavor but not a lot of spice making it a good morning cigar. There was enough transition with the addition of some pepper to keep it interesting. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that enjoys milder cigars or an intro into the MBombay brand.

Blind Cigar Review: MBombay | Gaaja Maduro Torpedo

“This was a great cigar for a tough day. Earlier today I buried my father so I really needed something to help me relax and this was it. Add to that the fact that I was smoking with my brother (whom I haven’t seen in years) and was in a great cigar lounge (Rudy’s Cigars in Rockford Illinois) and it really made for a good time. If you like great flavors and a medium full strength then I highly recommend you try this. I know I’ll be looking for some as a memorial cigar.” -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)

Blind Cigar Review: La Flor Dominicana | Air Bender Maduro Chisel

“I wanted to rate this cigar higher. The beginning and middle had some really nice flavors coming through. The smoke output on each draw was plentiful. The oily wrapper and chisel tip made it easy to smoke. All that, and then the final third hit a brick wall. Relights galore and harsh flavors just made the overall rating from me fall off a cliff. I would hope this stick was an anomaly in an otherwise solid blend. If I had stopped after the second third I would be happy.” -Matthew T. (A Huge Nerd)

Blind Cigar Review: Montecristo | Pilotico No. 2

“This cigar was never in my wheelhouse, but I am happy I got the opportunity to smoke it. This cigar expands the palate from prelight to the nub of what a premium cigar can offer in terms of flavor. Maybe my palate is broken.. I have no idea, but the exhale/retro was interesting delivering the wet wood, peat, earth, citrus, salt and flighty cream. I would happily have a few of these on hand to enjoy with some rye whiskey.” -Matt C. (Big Matt)
