Blind Cigar Review: Crowned Heads | Headley Grange Black Dog Dobles Score 87%

Blind Cigar Review: Crowned Heads | Headley Grange Black Dog Dobles

“This was a not a flavor profile that fit my wheelhouse. Having said that, for someone who likes hazelnut and some black licorice this will be a decent cigar for them. I didn’t like the bitterness of the cigar but it did progress into a tartness that wasn’t distasteful to me. I would have thought the cigar would be stronger than it was given the types of flavors but it remained a medium to full, on the more medium side for me. A decent smoke for a specific palette.” –Diana (ArmyRN)

Blind Cigar Review: Southern Draw | Quick Draw Connecticut Short Panatela

“A very enjoyable cigar. Mild to medium in flavor and a nice balance of flavors. I enjoyed the pepper and Connecticut stayed well balanced throughout. I was worried about the splitting of the cap but it stayed together well. I did get a couple of flakes in the mouth but it did not deter from the experience. This is definitely one to enjoy with a cup of coffee, maybe a blonde ale.” -Eric (smalls29)

Blind Cigar Review: Ventura Cigar | PSyKo Seven Connecticut Corona

“Wow… whatever this is I want more for my collection. This is one of those mild smokes that you just have to have for a nice relaxing session where you can kick back and relax while you enjoy the experience. More complex than most mild cigars, it had a great flavor profile from each third to another and it never got bitter at the end like some lighter smokes get. Two thumbs up.” -John A. (John A.)

Blind Cigar Review: Southern Draw | Rose of Sharon Toro

“This was one fantastic cigar! It smells like baked bread and a syrupy sweetness before even lighting it. Then when you light it you continue to get that sweetness along with some nuts, and oatmeal. This cigar would pair well with morning coffee, and I feel that this could be your 1st or even last smoke of the day. I want more!!!” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

Blind Cigar Review: Warped | Villa Sombra Mojitos

“Regardless of the chocolate flavors disappearing, this was still an enjoyable cigar. The entire experience was like drinking a mocha. You start off with wonderful flavors of semi sweet chocolate and coffee only to have the chocolate slowly fade away. Over time the coffee became stronger and in the end you are left with the bitter coffee flavor and after-taste. I would love to have this one again and smoke with a mocha or flavored latte.” -Eric (smalls29)

Quick Cigar Review: Jas Sum Kral | Zlatno Sonce Toro

This was an excellent cigar. It was a Connecticut, which I usually don’t gravitate towards, but as I said before, this is not your typical Connecticut. There is TONS of flavor and many transitions to keep your attention. The cigar was very smooth, and could be enjoyed anytime of the day not just with your coffee or as your 1st smoke of the day, but I will recommend you smoke it on a fresh palate in order to taste all the flavors this stick throws at you. My hat’s off to Riste on making a wonderful smoke.

Blind Cigar Review: La Flor Dominicana | Reserva Especial Belicoso

“I’ll start off by stating that I am not a fan of mild cigars…They generally just don’t keep my attention. This was an exception. The occasional flavor transitions, plus the excellent initial flavors were interesting and worthy of my time. This is something that I would highly recommend to any new smoker, of someone looking for a change of pace. Also, a perfect way to start a day. The reveal of this one will be interesting…. This cigar is one where the totality of the experience is greater than each of it’s parts…well done.” –Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
