Blind Cigar Review: E.P. Carrillo | Pledge Sojourn

“Give me another one of these! This was a solid stick with flavors that I rather enjoy. The middle third was probably the weak spot on this cigar where flavors kind of drowned in themselves and the marshmallow puff. I’m not going to say that portion of the cigar was bad, but it was not the highlight. Fortunately, there’s plenty of other things going on in this cigar to make the downsides forgettable. ” -Isaac M. (The Nothing)

“A cigar that can be smoked anytime. Morning, afternoon, or even to end a long day, this cigar gives you just enough to stay interested and engaged. It won’t overpower you or blast you with heavy doses of flavor. Instead, it offers a relaxing session that would go great with some easy listening tunes. ” -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)

Blind Cigar Review: Tre J | Vicarias Black Robusto

“I kept saying that this was not a bad cigar but also never found anything that was overly special about it. This would make a great cigar for yard work or walking your dog. Good flavors can be found, at times, but not overly complex that it will keep you from whatever you are trying to accomplish. I could see myself smoking it again but wouldn’t spend to much time seeking one out. ” -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)

“An extremely earthy and smoky cigar. If you are a fan a sticks with strong mineral and hickory style flavors this should be added to your list to try. While it’s not exactly my preferred profile I definitely appreciated the layers of mineral, smoke, and hints of spice.” -Lauren S. (Lauren S.)

“If you are in to earthy, spicy cigars, that perform well and don’t disappoint, then this is a cigar for you. It developed from medium to the high end of medium full throughout that smoking experience on an almost linear level. No abrupt changes in strength or body, and no re-lights or touchups needed. While it did end up a little bitter and spicy at the end, novice smokers should feel no fear with this cigar, as long as it is paired with something to offset the strength at the end, like a nice aged rum. Stout beer would overrun it, as would cask strength scotch or barrel proof bourbon. All in all a great experience that I look forward to trying again!” -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)

“At first, I really didn’t know if I was going to enjoy this one. The flavors were very good but the finish in the first third was throwing me off. Once the finish settled though, I really enjoyed this one. I’d definitely smoke this one again. The perfect pairing for me would be nice smooth bourbon or dark beer.” -James H. (Keikan Jim)

“If the burn hadn’t been so impossible to deal with, this would have been quite a decent cigar. The blend had some pleasant flavors, and the smoke output was on point. Unfortunately, the burn just knocked it down several notches for me. I’m hopeful that this was just a fluke, and the other sticks burn perfectly, but mine just did not.” -Nate H. (SineQuaNon)
