Blind Cigar Review: CAO | Zacalo

” It started off as a tasty cigar, however it plateaued about halfway through into a steady flavor profile. The back half remained a pleasant profile but lacked complexity. Draw, construction, and burn were exceptional for this sample considering the size. Not something I’d run and grab every day but definitely smoke one here and there when I crave a large stick. ” –John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: Carolina Blue | Maduro Toro

“This was a very full bodied cigar. I know that I am more sensitive to nicotine and pepper than most, but it wasn’t overpowering or unpleasant for me. If I hadn’t just eaten before I’m not sure if my opinion would be the same. The flavors were rich but didn’t have a real evolution throughout. If you’re a fan of rich full bodied cigars this is a great choice, but I would need to be prepared to smoke something this powerful again. ” -Alan (Eulogy)

Blind Cigar Review: Rocky Patel | Vintage 2006 San Andreas Toro

“Overall this was a pretty good smoke. The flavors were spicy and smokey and left a tingle on the palate. The restricted airflow hindered my opinion a touch but still not a bad cigar. The firmness of the cigar allowed me to chew on it a bit more than usual which i enjoyed. Aroma excellent throughout. ” -Adam B. (Bushboy)
