It is more refined, but without the power and spice that define the Knuckle Sandwich Maduro. I only have one of these cigars and I can't wait to pick up more to age and enjoy. This collaboration between Espinosa and Guy Fieri knocks it out of the park at every opportunity, and everyone should try a Knuckle Sandwich whether it's this one, or one of the other options.]]> https://blindmanspuff.com/espinosa-knuckle-sandwich-chefs-special-quick-cigar-review/feed/ 0 Black Label Trading Company Announces Ligero Hawaii 2022 – Cigar News https://blindmanspuff.com/black-label-trading-company-announces-ligero-hawaii-2022-cigar-news/ https://blindmanspuff.com/black-label-trading-company-announces-ligero-hawaii-2022-cigar-news/#disqus_thread Thu, 01 Dec 2022 20:59:40 +0000 https://blindmanspuff.com/?p=54949 Black Label Trading Company has announced that the Ligero Hawaii will be returning to R.

It started off a little rough, but the rough patch only lasted for just a moment. Shortly after a few draws, everything transitioned into a much smoother and more flavorful cigar, so don’t let the first few puffs fool you. It does have a little nicotine punch, so maybe not for someone too sensitive to nicotine. The dominating flavors of Coco, baking spice, and cedar along with the leather kicking in towards the end, made for an overall enjoyable experience. I did find that although the smoke was smooth during the second and final third, it did dry out my mouth a little bit, so you would want to have something on hand to drink while smoking this cigar. I would definitely recommend this to individuals with a more robust pallet and would definitely smoke this again. " -Angel M.
