Blind Cigar Review: Emilio | AF2 Torpedo

“I really enjoyed the richness of the coffee and oak during the first third and wished they would have held on a little more. The final two thirds gradually ramped the fullness down and transformed the smoke into a milder sweeter profile. I’m glad I grabbed this one for a morning cigar.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)

Blind Cigar Review: Emilio | AF Suave Toro

“Although I’ve got nothing bad to say about this cigar, it just didn’t do much for me. Even in mild sticks, I like more complexity and richness in the smoke texture. This didn’t have much of it. Probably not a bad smoke for someone new to cigars or someone that likes mild, light bodied cigars. Not really for me though. I’ll pass on smoking another.” -Brian (B-daddy)

Blind Cigar Review: Rodrigo | La Fortaleza Forte

“This is a big after dinner flavor bomb/smoke bomb. I dug it and I’d definitely smoke it again. I’d recommend it to anyone that likes medium full to full body and rich flavorful smoke. I think I may have a couple five packs resting in the tupperdor. Now I can’t wait to try them.” -Brian (B-daddy)

Blind Cigar Review: Emilio | La Musa Melete Lancero

“As long a smoke as this cigar was, I nubbed it and wished that it wouldn’t stop. You just can’t beat a cigar with a great flavor profile and a great burn. If I had another one in the humidor, I would have went and gotten it to smoke it immediately. Someone send me another one or box! Seriously, I will be looking to pick some up on the reveal.” -Jason (bigslowrock)

Blind Cigar Review: Los Regalos | Quetzal Toro

“What a pleasurable milder smoke with lots of subtle changes within it’s original profile. The balance of spice and sweetness was close to perfect, never becoming harsh or bitter. Often the initial pepper blast takes over, but this cigar seemed to keep all flavors balanced and working well together. I would grab a box in a heartbeat.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)

Blind Cigar Review: Oliva | Saison Toro

“This cigar was a flavor bomb throughout. It kept me puffing almost to the point where it began burning hotter than normal. It’s not the absolute best I’ve had, but it’s one that’s definitely in my wheelhouse. I’d more than happy to enjoy another one (or three) of these!” -Milton (mjohnsoniii)

Blind Cigar Review: Hermosa | Torpedo

“With its mild strength and bold flavors, I would not be surprised if this is a La Aurora cigar. This is one of those cigars that can be enjoyed by anyone as it’s not too strong for the beginner, but complex enough to satisfy the aficionado. The technical performance was outstanding with no burn or draw issues, in fact the ash held on almost two inches. I would describe the flavor profile as classic. This one was a winner.” -Emmett (rhetorik)

Blind Cigar Review: King Havano Criollo | Torpedo

“The lighter flavors of the first two thirds were just the ticket for a hot humid afternoon while the bolder flavors at the end gave the cigar a nice finish. I appreciate that this stick stayed true to it’s flavor profile while adding enough variation to keep it interesting.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)

Blind Cigar Review: Epicurian | Gonzo Perfecto

“I’ve had my heart broken too many times by cigars that started great but faltered during the last third. This cigar was truly a pleasure to smoke. A full bodied start that offered a respite in the middle followed by a great finishing third. The sweeter profile at the end capped off a very enjoyable experience.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)

Blind Cigar Review: Ortega | Serie D Natural No 7 Corona

“Nice flavor transitions throughout. Lots of smoke output and the cigar performed well. I would classify the strength as medium full, so I would say it’s a good afternoon or evening cigar, something that might pair well with a stronger libation and could probably stand up to a beer along the lines of a stout or porter. I would be up for smoking another one of these.” -Aaron (aaron72)
