Blind Cigar Review: La Aurora | 1985 Maduro Robusto

“Any cigar that does not become bitter near the end is a good one. The spices for most of the time were a nice blend of cinnamon and nutmeg with a great spice tingle. Towards the end the black licorice came in but was not over bearing. All in all this is one that will pair well with a single malt scotch. It would be a nice addition to my humidor.” -Eric (smalls29)

“Man…I really enjoyed the flavors of this cigar! I really love coffee and this was coffee for the duration. A funny story on this one is that due to high elevation my jet lighter wouldn’t light. I ended up starting a small campfire by hand with friction and sticks and lit the cigar that way…a first for me, and now I know I’m a survivor…” -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)

“Despite my reporting that the flavors were one dimensional, I am not beating up on the cigar. There is nothing wrong with a cigar being one dimensional. Sometimes you just want to smoke and not have to think about it. They are made for relaxation anyway right? I would definitely smoke this cigar again to compare notes.” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

Blind Cigar Review: Diesel | Whiskey Row Sherry Cask Robusto

“This was a highly enjoyable cigar, and one that I would never turn down if given the opportunity to smoke again. The flavors might have been muddled, but very pleasing; despite having to remove a plug (which I truly believe to be a fluke) the burn and draw were darn near perfect. This was a truly quality cigar…” -Nate H. (SineQuaNon)

Blind Cigar Review: Blue Mountain Cigars | El Threesome Toro

“I was honestly surprised by this cigar. When I saw the three different wrappers I was immediately a little suspicious that it was going to be what I call a “hokey” cigar. Gimmick without much to it. I was pleasantly surprised by the consistent good flavor notes and the ability of the cigar to transition fairly seamlessly into the next type of wrapper. It didn’t go from nothing to a beat down and that impressed me more than anything. It kept building in intensity but in a very mild yet noticeable way. This is a great cigar for a herf where everyone can share what they are getting from this unusual cigar configuration. I’d smoke it again!” -Diana (ArmyRN)

Quick Cigar Review: Drew Estate | ACID 20

It does everything so well it’s hard to find a fault with it. If I’m being nit-picky, it smoked a little fast for it’s size. The smoke output was phenomenal, the burn was almost razor sharp though out, the draw was perfect, and the flavor profile evolved all the way through. I’m not a flavored cigar fan but I’m a fan of this one. I remember smoking this at IPCPR and feeling that it was in the top 5 new cigars at the show. It was actually the best cigar that I smoked that day and was teased relentlessly for it. Trying it for a second time now, it holds up the previous experience. Honestly, give it a try and be open to the experience and I think you’ll be very surprised at how good this actually is.

“I think it’s better than the sum of its parts. It smokes great, the ash was impressive, I liked the shape and ascetics of the cigar. It just could have been a bit more interesting in terms of flavor. It’s by no means bland or wispy in flavors but I’d have to be in the mood for a tobacco flavor profile to really enjoy it at the time. Still, I would recommend this if the price was right and the flavors are in your wheelhouse. ” -Alan (Eulogy)

“This cigar was enjoyable to say the least. Flavors did not develop or transition, however remain consistent and enjoyable throughout. Strength built a touch but that is expected with a ring gauge around 50. I would definitely smoke again and recommend” -Adam B. (Bushboy)
