Blind Cigar Review: Perdomo | Firecracker Score 94%

Blind Cigar Review: Perdomo | Firecracker

“This was a flavor bomb! Rich and bold from the time the fire touches it and grows fuller throughout the smoking experience. If this is what I think it is, this is exactly what it is blended to do. It was very slow burning for the size, which is quite amazing. I would say rush out and get as many as you can, especially if you are a fan of a slow burning flavor bomb, but if they are what I think they are that might be a little tough. Good luck and enjoy.” -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)

Blind Cigar Review: J.C. Newman | Cuesta-Rey Centro Fino Sungrown No. 60

“Overall this is a decent breakfast smoke with no true transitions. If you’re looking for something to kill some time and not really looking for something complex. This is a nice smoke to pair with coffee. I prefer something with a little more character, even for my breakfast smoke. All in all, this is close but no cigar… Get it? Lol. -_-” -Jonathan R. (J.Lee)

Blind Cigar Review: J.C. Newman | Diamond Crown Maximus No. 4 Toro

“Overall, this was an okay stick, however not something I myself would seek out. While it was fairly consistent in flavor, it did switch up things to a slight sweeter note on the second half. This would pair wonderfully with a port wine, porter & stout beer with its robust flavors and sweetness options they provide. Burn, construction and draw were spot on for this sample and couldn’t of asked for much better. If you like dark, char, and a bit of chocolate covered cherry sweetness, check out this blend for your enjoyment!” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: Ave Maria | Lionheart Earl

“Really well crafted and lovingly made cigar that is probably the polar opposite of what appeals to my palate. Very crisp, bright and dry flavors. In the early portion there were some fairly negative points offering bitterness and astringency. Overall a fairly mild cigar that may appeal to devotees of a more classic Connecticut flavor profile. ” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: Drew Estate | Undercrown Sun Grown Corona

“I really enjoyed smoking this cigar. The first 1/3 of the cigar was truly fantastic. Really great spice and pepper to begin mixed with hints of sweetness. If the flavors continued throughout the rest of the cigar, it would have ranked much higher for me. While the second and final 1/3 of the cigar was very good, I was missing a lot of the flavors that the cigar started out having. ” -David F. (dfafjf)

Blind Cigar Review: Drew Estate | Undercrown Sun Grown Gran Toro

“This was such an enjoyable cigar. It was not a powerhouse, and it was not overly complex, but it was flavorful all the way. I enjoyed each puff, and the sweet/spice mix was really a nice combo at the end of the day. It also looked beautiful, and had no performance issues, so no extra work on the part of the smoker in order to enjoy the cigar. This one would have a place in my humidor. ” -Matthew T.

Blind Cigar Review: Dunhill | Aged Maduro Short Robusto Score 90%

Blind Cigar Review: Dunhill | Aged Maduro Short Robusto

“This is a fairly short-lived cigar, easy smoking in under an hour, and probably just over a half hour smoke for most people. Each third had a distinct change of flavors that could easily be detected without looking. I found myself enjoying this one, a lot. But, it could use some glue. The tendency for the wrapper to unravel kept me distracted and, ultimately forced me to score the cigar lower than I would have liked based on flavor alone. That said, I’d give it another go in hopes that it’d stay together.” -Isaac M. (The Nothing)
