Quick Cigar Review: HVC | Edicion Especial 2015 Toro

This cigar carried a bit more strength than I expected based on previous cigars from HVC. It has darker flavors which would make me lean towards smoking it in the evening or as a final cigar of a multi-cigar smoking experience. There weren’t many transitions, but that is OK as the cigars flavors were good. I wouldn’t recommend this cigar to a new smoker, but rather someone that is interested in strength along with flavors of earthiness, coffee and wood.

Blind Cigar Review: E.P. Carrillo | Edición Limitada 2011 “Dark Rituals”

“This was a great cigar with nice bold flavors and great performance technically. My only complaint was that I wish the final third had offered a bit more, but that’s minor and I would certainly have some more. I could easily recommend this as a medium bodied late evening smoke with great dark espresso flavors and wood background.” -Emmett (rhetorik)

Blind Cigar Review: Casa Fernandez | Miami Reserva Toro

“Rock solid smoke, if this cigar was a baseball player it would be Cal Ripken, something you could totally bank on in a pinch. It didn’t change a ton through the cigar but it was strong and not overwhelming at all which is not an easy thing to say about a stick of this caliber.” -Jack (Jack_H)

Blind Cigar Review: Tatuaje | Black Label Petite Lancero

“The flavors had a few transitions, and those flavors were good, but nothing exceptional. I could see this being something to reach for when in the mood for that woody/char experience. If others experienced a better draw, then I could see this being something to smoke on occasion.” -Aaron (aaron7

Blind Cigar Review: Señorial By Jose Blanco | Belicoso No.2

“I really liked this cigar. It was a great middle of the day smoke, not too strong, not too weak. It reminded me of the Sun Grown Perdomo Champagne. There was lots of flavor, but not too much spice, until the end, when it needed it. I would definitely smoke this again, and might buy a few to age.” -Emmett (rhetorik)

Blind Cigar Review: Hoyo de Monterrey (Cuba) | Epicure No. 1

“I loved the flavor profile present, really up my alley, and it was complex with a nice bit of depth. There was some transitioning throughout, but it kept this core flavor profile as well that really changed up in thirds. I loved the body and strength present with the cigar and it made for a great evening smoke. I am a big fan of cigars in this size, corona gorda area, and they perform incredibly well when constructed correctly. This will only get better with age, and if it did not have some age on it right now, I would be surprised. I believe a lot of smokers would love this cigar and enjoy what was offered.” -Seth (Seth’s Humidor)
