Blind Cigar Review: La Barba | Ricochet Cru Mexi-Sol Coronita

“Magnificent cigar. Loved it. Perfect format for me personally, and a flavor profile to match. Big, bold flavors of earth with a world wind tour of coffee, molasses, spices, peppercorns and a bit of an anisette flashing around on the finish. Tremendous construction, nearly flawless. Very extremely well made. Nice progression in terms of strength, starts out very manageable and builds to an agreeable and enjoyable full body by the end. Quite possibly the perfect cigar to follow a big meal. I’m buying boxes. No doubt about it. ” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: JRE | Aladino Maduro Corona

“What made the cigar unique is that while the primary flavors of citrus, meats, and chocolates were always there, the aspect of those flavors changed. You start off with a nice grilled steak and then you moved to a barbecue, and then you finished with something that was overly prepared. Or you had a nice citrus peel, that went dry. And then you finished with an unripened fruit. Very unique.I I found that rather interesting and I would definitely give this a try again.” -Isaac M. (The Nothing)

Quick Cigar Review: Cornelius & Anthony | The Gent Corona

This was a very enjoyable cigar. There were plenty of flavors to keep me interested and kept looking at the cigar like mmmm mmm. This cigar would an excellent choice as your first cigar of the day with your favorite cup of joe. The draw was very nice and open, and had a razor sharp burn that needed no touch ups. I smoked the cigar with an inch to go, and would liked to have continue on, but it went out.

Blind Cigar Review: Home Roll | HR103 Nic

“I struggled with the rating on this one. I ended up giving it the benefit of the doubt and rating it “good” instead of “fair” because it was not in my wheelhouse. Overall, I wouldn’t want to smoke it again. It strikes me as very similar to several homerolls I’ve tried, the flavor profile was overly syrupy, and lacked clarity. I tend to prefer a cleaner flavor profile. It’s not for me, but fans of sweet cigars or sumatra wrappers might appreciate this one.” -Derek (StogieNinja)

Blind Cigar Review: Oliva | Gilberto Reserva Corona

“This was a nice pleasant smoke that I would absolutely smoke again. I believe this was a corona or even a petite corona. There was plenty of transitions to keep my attention. Starting out with wood, chocolate and rye then switching up to earth tones then settling out with cream…..very interesting smoke. ” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

“As ugly as this cigar was, it goes to show that you can’t judge a book by the cover. The flavors were so good. There was complexity, and yet consistent notes that pulled everything together. I would gladly reach for this cigar again. ” -Matthew T. (A Huge Nerd)

Blind Cigar Review: Drew Estate | Undercrown Sun Grown Corona

“I really enjoyed smoking this cigar. The first 1/3 of the cigar was truly fantastic. Really great spice and pepper to begin mixed with hints of sweetness. If the flavors continued throughout the rest of the cigar, it would have ranked much higher for me. While the second and final 1/3 of the cigar was very good, I was missing a lot of the flavors that the cigar started out having. ” -David F. (dfafjf)

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.)
