Blind Cigar Review: Ave Maria | Lionheart Earl Score 91%

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: A.J. Fernandez | Last Call

“Overall, this is a very good cigar that will only benefit with a little more humidor time, say 3-6 months. I think this cigar might incorporate an Ecuadorian wrapper, due to the flavor profile (grass) however with its rosado shade it has me second guessing myself. I would easily recommend this cigar to a cigar newbie (on a full stomach) or a seasoned cigar enthusiast. This is a smoke I hope to get the chance to reach for again and again.” -Matt C. (Big Matt)

Blind Cigar Review: Relic by A.J. Fernandez | Robusto

“The first two thirds of this cigar are some of the best and most complex you can find in a full body smoke. Burn, draw and construction are all top notch and the cigar is very well made. Unfortunately, the finish becomes unbalanced and slightly bitter in the final third. This can be a product of age and letting this cigar sit for a few months or so will rid the final third of this bitter note. I could buy 10 or so of this cigar and it will hit the mark when I am looking for a full body smoke. However, there are a few other full bodied cigars I would reach for over this one.” -Dave (Cigar Jukebox)
