Blind Cigar Review: Hiram & Solomon | Shriner Toro

“Though this cigar lacked body, in my opinion, I can not overstate how good this cigar was. I could see some people calling it one dimensional but in all honesty this cigar was a flavor bomb. Forgoing strength and body for the benefit of making a more flavorful blend. This cigar is perfect for anyone looking to expand their palate away from the light body, airy, cigars of the world. Pick one up and decided for yourself.” -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)

Blind Cigar Review: J. Fuego | Connoisseur Originals

“This was a really nice cigar. After the first few draws, the cigar really picked up and the flavors came through. They were rich and full flavors that had a medium body and complexity. The cigar smoked well and was very easy by just lighting and going. I was initially worried about the look of this cigar, but it smoked quite well.” –Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)

Blind Cigar Review: Montecristo | Pilotico No. 2

“This cigar was never in my wheelhouse, but I am happy I got the opportunity to smoke it. This cigar expands the palate from prelight to the nub of what a premium cigar can offer in terms of flavor. Maybe my palate is broken.. I have no idea, but the exhale/retro was interesting delivering the wet wood, peat, earth, citrus, salt and flighty cream. I would happily have a few of these on hand to enjoy with some rye whiskey.” -Matt C. (Big Matt)

Blind Cigar Review: 1502 | Ruby Corona

The cigar had excellent flavor until the wrapper unraveled. This caused most of the flavor to leave for the last third. Prior to this issue, the flavors were very enjoyable, with enough transitions to keep me interested. I’m looking forward to finding out what this cigar is as it is definitely worth at least a 5 pack purchase. I think it has lots of aging potential as well.” -Dan (Danfish)

Blind Cigar Review – Revisited: Nomad | S-307 Toro

“This was an enjoyable cigar to smoke. A rich char combined nicely with a well balanced cedar. The leather and chocolate kept the flavors in check while the surprising baking spice at the end added an element of sweetness to the finish. I would gladly grab another one.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)
