Blind Cigar Review: Cubariqueño | Protocol Themis Corona Gorda

“Overall, a tasty cigar when you want something similar to a nice glass of bourbon. Mild-medium in body, this blend exemplifies tasty notes of vanilla, oak, and bourbon like sweetness. Easy to smoke from top to bottom, this is an easy recommendation for a well balanced smoke that can be enjoyed anytime without any reservations for a relaxing experience.” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: Micallef | Connecticut Toro

“On a grey, gloomy rainy Northern NY day, the kind that makes Eeyore on downers look like Richard Simmons on meth, I decided to take a break from the doldrums of watching my life pass me by, and throw on some Type O Negative, and light up this cigar known only to me as “1001.” A nice looking cigar, brownie tannishy in color, typical of Connecticut wrappers, a pleasant smell of barn and tobacco. On the light up and first third, I got hints of lamb chops, BBQ oysters and diet Coke. Ok, maybe not. Cedar and white pepper were the dominant flavors through to the last third, wherein some leathery hints were thrown in. All in all, a good smoke, great construction, no burn issues, and thank goodness it didn’t really taste like BBQ oysters. A good mild to medium smoke to be enjoyed with coffee I think, then again i haven’t met a cigar yet that didn’t go good with coffee. I wouldn’t mind one of these for a good morning coffee, ease into the day, one, perhaps, that isn’t doomy and gloomy as this day.” -Joseph S. (Bearded Bastard)

Blind Cigar Review: Blue Mountain Cigars | El Threesome Toro

“I was honestly surprised by this cigar. When I saw the three different wrappers I was immediately a little suspicious that it was going to be what I call a “hokey” cigar. Gimmick without much to it. I was pleasantly surprised by the consistent good flavor notes and the ability of the cigar to transition fairly seamlessly into the next type of wrapper. It didn’t go from nothing to a beat down and that impressed me more than anything. It kept building in intensity but in a very mild yet noticeable way. This is a great cigar for a herf where everyone can share what they are getting from this unusual cigar configuration. I’d smoke it again!” -Diana (ArmyRN)

“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)

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.)

Blind Cigar Review: Southern Draw | Rose of Sharon Toro

“This was one fantastic cigar! It smells like baked bread and a syrupy sweetness before even lighting it. Then when you light it you continue to get that sweetness along with some nuts, and oatmeal. This cigar would pair well with morning coffee, and I feel that this could be your 1st or even last smoke of the day. I want more!!!” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

Blind Cigar Review: Warped | Villa Sombra Mojitos

“Regardless of the chocolate flavors disappearing, this was still an enjoyable cigar. The entire experience was like drinking a mocha. You start off with wonderful flavors of semi sweet chocolate and coffee only to have the chocolate slowly fade away. Over time the coffee became stronger and in the end you are left with the bitter coffee flavor and after-taste. I would love to have this one again and smoke with a mocha or flavored latte.” -Eric (smalls29)

Blind Cigar Review: La Flor Dominicana | Reserva Especial Belicoso

“I’ll start off by stating that I am not a fan of mild cigars…They generally just don’t keep my attention. This was an exception. The occasional flavor transitions, plus the excellent initial flavors were interesting and worthy of my time. This is something that I would highly recommend to any new smoker, of someone looking for a change of pace. Also, a perfect way to start a day. The reveal of this one will be interesting…. This cigar is one where the totality of the experience is greater than each of it’s parts…well done.” –Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
