Blind Cigar Review: Partagas | Legend Corona Extra Leyenda

“Exceptional smoke in my estimation. Reminded me quite a bit of a Padron 1926. Big flavor, powerful, lots of smoke. Great flavors of chocolate with some background spice and sweetness. Not really a lot of transitional flavors, but the core of this was so enjoyable I really wasn’t interested in going anywhere else. I enjoyed every second of this, and I’m ready to go buy a bunch more. ” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: HVC | First Selection Limited Edition 2018 Broadleaf Short Robusto

“I really enjoyed this cigar. It had just enough transitions to keep me interested and just kept getting better as I went along. There was a lot of creamy coco, brown sugar, leather, hay, and woodiness notes that all worked together in a really nice way. I would suggest trying one for yourself. ” -Jeff (ExpendableYouth)

Blind Cigar Review: La Aurora | Preferidos Diamond Broadleaf Toro

“Overall this was a solid performing smoke. A bit full bodied and strong for sure, make sure you have something in your stomach before smoking this bad boy, it will hit you going into the second half. Flavors were spot on for a full bodied smoke and diverse enough to make it interesting. Try one out, may be your next full bodied goto!” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: Home Roll | Mischievous Marshmallow

“Off the bat I enjoyed the sweetness and pepper flavors. The way they played off each other was enjoyable. I also enjoyed how the sweetness was like a glaze on my lips. While smoking the cigar, looking at the cigar, it was ok and was not wowed by how the cigar looked. I had to touch up the cigar and had to relight it twice throughout the smoke. As much as enjoyed the flavors in the first two thirds, the last third wrecked the experience for me. The way the cigar was constructed it burned my tongue and all the flavor were bitter. It left my mouth feeling like I smoked five cigars back to back.” -Daniel S. (Daniel S.)

Blind Cigar Review: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust | Mi Querida Ancho Largo

“Even with the slight harshness and herbal bitterness in the beginning, this was an excellent cigar, and I haven’t said that about a dark cigar in a very long time. I would love to smoke more of them after some additional downtime! The final third was among the best I’ve smoked for BMP. Looking forward to the reveal, and to grabbing a few to put down for a while!” –Derek (StogieNinja)

Blind Cigar Review: Foundation | The Tabernacle Toro

“It’s been a while since I had a cigar that I felt was truly extraordinary, and that dry spell has been broken! This cigar is firmly in my wheelhouse in all areas. The flavors were deep and meaty, the performance excellent, and the strength was just enough to pair with any meal or beverage that I’d want to enjoy it with. This probably isn’t something I’d push off on a new smoker, but really…I liked it so much that I’d be hard pressed to share it with anyone. Can’t wait for the reveal on this!” -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
