Blind Cigar Review: Arandoza | Defcon Super Toro

“Never judge a cigar by the wrapper. Based on my initial observations, I would have skipped over grabbing this cigar. The flavors, however, were very well balanced and offered a nice smoke. While not a lot of dimension, I could see keeping some on hand to enjoy while grilling or golfing.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)

Blind Cigar Review: Drew Estate | Nica Rustica Belly

“This larger vitola benefited from a nice change up of flavors. Although there were no stars, the subtle nuances held my interest for ninety minutes. My biggest issue was an inconsistent and loose draw that made it difficult to pull out a wider range of tastes. I would try this one again based on the flavors.” –Gregg (McGreggor57)

Blind Cigar Review: Fleur de la Reine | Maduro Cinq

“Wonderful flavors through and through made this an enjoyable experience. The richer coffee and earthiness was balanced perfectly with some cocoa and nutmeg/allspice. I appreciated the transitions within the profile and will be looking to pick more of these up in the future.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)

Blind Cigar Review: 601 | La Bomba Warhead II

“This cigar settled in quickly after the initial spice bomb. The robust coffee and pepper mellowed as the leather came into play making the transition through the thirds very enjoyable. A brief showing of allspice and tobacco added a sweet element that complimented the earthy notes.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)

Blind Cigar Review: JM’s Dominican Maduro Toro

“Luckily, the bitterness that I encountered most of the first third is definitely dying down as I enter the next third. However, the draw now seems to be having a problem. I cut the cap with my V cutter and this definitely opened it up significantly. The harshness is still present and seems to coat the back of my throat. The predominant flavor is that of leather and cedar with some hay like quality. So far the cigar has been plagued with a lot of issues. The burn line continues to be straight and once the draw issue is better the smoke is good and creamy.” -Sandeep (Djangos)
