Quick Cigar Review: Cohiba | Majestuosos 1966

For the most part, this tasted like a Cohiba, and not the best one I’ve had. I had expected a lot more from a special edition. The flavors were not all that complex and the transitions were moderately noticeable. Perhaps with some more time this would be something special, but for the moment, I doubt it will justify the hefty price tag it will take to get one.

Blind Cigar Review: Don Lucas | 20th Anniversary Robusto Gordo Aniversario

“I’d park this firmly in the “good” camp. It was pleasant, and I wouldnt mind smoking another, but it’s not something I’ll chase. I would be minorly interested to see how a smaller ring gauge would improve the overall experience, but to be honest, I would only pursue that if someone else recommended it. As it stands, this doesn’t stand out to me at all.” -Derek (StogieNinja)

Blind Cigar Review: Don Lopez | El Gran Emperador

“The flavor profile was nice, but was a bit more muted than I would have liked. More defined or bold flavors would have certainly been appreciated. Not by any means a bad experience, but not one that really wowed me in any way either. Not sure I would be interested in giving this one another go anytime soon.” -Dave (mdwest)

Blind Cigar Review: G.A.R. | Red 6 x 60

“Initially, I get a lot of that leather taste I picked up in pre-light and a medium amount of pepper spice. Once we get into it, I’m getting a combination of chocolate, cream and coffee, like a latte. Very nice! The draw and burn are performing admirably for such a large ring gauge. Towards the end of the third, I start picking up a dry wood, not quite distinguishable.” -Emmett (rhetorik)

Blind Cigar Review: El Cuje | Maravillas Collection No. 1

“This was the best hour and a half I’ve spent this week. There was a multitude of great flavors within this cigar. I’m excited to see what this is so I can track down more. I enjoyed this one from beginning to end and didn’t want to see it finish. This is a definite keeper and one that I would try to incorporate into the normal rotation.” -Milton (mjohnsoniii)
