Blind Cigar Review: Southern Draw | Rose of Sharon Toro Score 90%

Blind Cigar Review: Southern Draw | Rose of Sharon Toro

“This was one fantastic cigar! It smells like baked bread and a syrupy sweetness before even lighting it. Then when you light it you continue to get that sweetness along with some nuts, and oatmeal. This cigar would pair well with morning coffee, and I feel that this could be your 1st or even last smoke of the day. I want more!!!” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

Blind Cigar Review: Fratello | Oro Robusto

“The beginning was very nice and enjoyable. The predominant flavors were wood and nuts. There were hints of sweet cherry wood and some earthy tones. The flavors remained nicely balanced up unto about the final third. At this point it became bitter and sour. I consider this one an old fashioned cigar. I think it would pair nicely with a scotch or spiced rum.” –Eric (smalls29)

Blind Cigar Review: Warped | Villa Sombra Mojitos

“Regardless of the chocolate flavors disappearing, this was still an enjoyable cigar. The entire experience was like drinking a mocha. You start off with wonderful flavors of semi sweet chocolate and coffee only to have the chocolate slowly fade away. Over time the coffee became stronger and in the end you are left with the bitter coffee flavor and after-taste. I would love to have this one again and smoke with a mocha or flavored latte.” -Eric (smalls29)

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: La Flor Dominicana | Reserva Especial Belicoso

“I’ll start off by stating that I am not a fan of mild cigars…They generally just don’t keep my attention. This was an exception. The occasional flavor transitions, plus the excellent initial flavors were interesting and worthy of my time. This is something that I would highly recommend to any new smoker, of someone looking for a change of pace. Also, a perfect way to start a day. The reveal of this one will be interesting…. This cigar is one where the totality of the experience is greater than each of it’s parts…well done.” –Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)

Blind Cigar Review: #Famous | Toro

“I personally did not have any problems with this cigar but it never captured my interest or cigar repertoire . The cigar seemed to be infused and the transitions were nil. I would recommend this cigar to the novice or first time cigar smoker as she/he will be able to immediately define flavors even from the cold draw, and those flavors remain consistent and constant throughout the whole cigar experience.” -Matt C.

Blind Cigar Review: Manolo Estate | Connecticut Gran Fino Robusto

“This is definitely a first cigar of the day type of smoke. I would even smoke this cigar on an empty stomach first thing in the morning, as the flavors present are so damn good, I digress. The honey, cinnamon, cedar and nut notes makes this a cigar aficionados dream and it is right in my wheelhouse. Bravo. I put the cigar down with less than an inch left.” –Matt C. (Big Matt)

Blind Cigar Review: Villiger | San’Doro Claro Toro

“If you are looking for a well constructed Connecticut shade cigar this might be it. This cigar reminded me of a lighter version of the Quesada 40th Corona Clasica. The fruit on the retrohale mixed in with the pepper and cinnamon on the palate and the sweetness in the back of the throat were all very enjoyable. I easily recommend this cigar if your palate yearns for flavors in the mild strength category with body and complexity that hold up and build throughout the whole experience.” –Matt C. (Big Matt)
