Blind Cigar Review: San Pedro De Macoris | Ecuador Robusto

“I really liked this cigar right from the first glance down to the nub. It was good looking, tasty, well constructed and had enough complexity to keep me interested and happy all the way through. This would be a great morning cigar for me but also a “go to” at any time for a nice well-balanced and relaxing smoke.” –Diana (ArmyRN)

Cigar News: Casa Cuevas Announces La Mandarria

Casa Cuevas Cigars has announced a Limited Edition cigar called La Mandarria which translates to “The Sledgehammer”. Three months ago the Casa Cuevas warehouse was broken into and nearly all their inventory was stolen. They got away with more than 25,000 cigars, including the planned Limited Edition Flacos which they were unable to release. The perpetrators used sledgehammers to break through the exterior wall, hence the name La Mandarria.

Quick Cigar Review: Diamond Crown | Julius Caeser 1895 Perfecto

This cigar while the first two thirds had a similar profile this for sure wasn’t a bad thing.   Enjoyed this cigar from beginning to end and always happy for that next puff.    I have smoked plenty of the Julius Caesar in other sizes and have to say this perfecto was a treat.   If you have a Diamond Crown lounge near you pick one up!

Blind Cigar Review: MLB Cigar Ventures | David P. Ehrlich PLM Series Churchill

“Definitely an easy going smoke. Medium to full bodied flavors of oak, leather, light black pepper and a bit of sweetness made for a nice enjoyable smoke. It seemed like eternity to finish this long sized cigar, so I did get a bit bored and would probably enjoy it in a smaller format. Not bad at all, give them a try!” -John A. (Bostoneo)

“I immensely enjoyed this cigar. The quality of flavors, smoke, and construction make this one of the highlights of the year for me. I usually would have to smoke another to make sure it wasn’t a fluke, but on this single experience I would highly recommend this cigar to anyone. ” -Alan (Eulogy)

Quick Cigar Review: Sinistro | Mr. White Robusto

One thing to note I have had this cigar in my humidor for at least two years. As this is the first time having it I can’t really tell you what that age has done to the blend. The cigar started out very light and sweet with a bit of pepper which is exactly what I would have expected from this blend just by understanding what is in it as well as looks. The cigar was a pleasure to smoke all the way through with only a few touch ups here or there that I am sure would have corrected itself. The cigar did crack on me but I chuck that up to winter smoking and a fragile wrapper. I would for sure recommend picking some of these up as this thing just screams “Drink me with some espresso!”

Blind Cigar Review: Bespoke | Grand Cafe Lancero

“I liked this a ton. Great flavors in one of my favorite vitolas. Pretty powerful cigar, but there was still a nice range of flavors, and pretty dramatic transitions from yeasty sweetness to dark rich coffee. Only drawback was the rapid burn which seemed to be due to being rather under-filled, at least in the early stages of this smoke. I’d still buy a whole bunch more. ” -John I. (John I.)

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: Davidoff | Chef’s Edition 2018

“This was a decent stick with plenty of flavor transitions from third to third. The thick luxurious flavors proved ample enjoyment and relaxation. The only downside I had was with the burn as a result of an uneven construction during the first half of the cigar. Something I’d like to try again before I decide if it’s a must try….” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Quick Cigar Review: Davidoff | Superior Toro

Overall, this was a very tasty cigar with many flavors one doesn’t typically get with many sticks. I thoroughly enjoyed the sweet creamy flavors that exuded from the cigar. The burn was spot on and construction near perfect. The only issue was the super flaky ash, which ended up all over me as bits and pieces would separate from the main bulk. Worth $32? Maybe as a celebratory smoke or if you want something that is a change of pace that is a mild/medium profile. Thumbs up on this masterpiece.
