Blind Cigar Review: Hechicera | Maduro Robusto

“Overall, this was an excellent stogie, with my only complaint being that it was too bloody short! This really reminded me of an Illusione Rothschild. I smoke the regular ones regularly as the creator and owner of the brand has a B&M in Reno. If this is what it is, I’m stoked that they came out with a Maduro line!!!” -Robert (NavyPiper)

Blind Cigar Review: CLE | Signature Series PLdM

“This was a very good cigar. The first third is the star giving me complex flavors of coffee and cream, oily chili, black pepper, sweet bread, hay, cedar and at times perhaps a black licorice. I kept wanting to take draws just so I can confirm what I’m tasting. The cigar does still have a little bit of edge to it in which I think age may help with. Easy fiver for me. Smoking one every 6 months or so to see how it is progressing.” -Jiunn (jliu)

Blind Cigar Review: OSOK | Cabroncito

“Overall, this was a nice, quick smoke that would be great for those occasions where time is limited, but you would really like a cigar. Plenty of power, packed with a good amount of flavor, and well made, I would definitely be interested in buying a few more of these to keep in the humidor.” -Dave (mdwest)

Blind Cigar Review: Eiroa by CLE | Robusto

“While the flavor profile of this cigar really wasn’t in my personal wheelhouse, it will likely appeal to others who prefer sticks that bring a strong pepper punch on the front end and like smokes with grass and hay type overtones. While not very complex, it was not overly simple or boring either. It was well made and other than the single touch up required (not really a big deal at all) it performed nicely from start to finish as well.” -Dave (mdwest)
