Blind Cigar Review: CAO | Zacalo

” It started off as a tasty cigar, however it plateaued about halfway through into a steady flavor profile. The back half remained a pleasant profile but lacked complexity. Draw, construction, and burn were exceptional for this sample considering the size. Not something I’d run and grab every day but definitely smoke one here and there when I crave a large stick. ” –John A. (Bostoneo)

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)
