Quick Cigar Review: Dunbarton T&T | Muestra de Saka Unicorn

While the Diademas size was amazing I always find them a struggle with construction, burn, etc. This cigar from a construction point of view was on point. The burn was great, and the cigar smoked perfectly. Would I spend $100 on this cigar if it was regular production? Of course not. Definitely a treat to smoke and I was happy to get the chance. I give this a score of 93.

Editorial: Don Lucas Cigar Factory | Mundo Autentico – Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Since I have already been to some cigar factories, I had some idea what to expect. What was so wonderful about the tour at the Don Lucas cigar factory was the close family atmosphere. While it is a small factory by some standards, they do not cut corners on quality or final product. They meet or exceed some quality control and aging standards that I have seen from other manufacturers. They don’t disclose what daily production rates are, but they vary. It all depends on what leaf they have in stock that day that is ready to be rolled. They do not base anything off production quotas, but only on quality standards. I greatly admire that practice, especially considering how rare it is becoming in the cigar industry.

Quick Cigar Review: All Out Kings | Give Me Your Lunch Money

Yes, I knew what I was smoking. Yes, I am a fan of Drew Estate, especially the T-52 and also blends from Willy Herrera. Yes, I am a fan of Caldwell, especially The King is Dead and The Last Tsar. Take all of that into account, and call me a fanboy if you want. I just don’t care, because this was an excellent cigar.

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: Dram | Cask No. 3 Churchill

“I really really really enjoyed this cigar. I have no guesses what it is because it hasn’t reminded me of anything I have had before, but if the price is right I will definitely be picking some up. The flavors were changing and complex, especially for a churchill. the flavor profile was right up my alley and if the other reviewers had a similar experience, I expect a high score.” –Emmett (BMP_Emmett)

Blind Cigar Review: Leccia | Luchador El Gringo Frog Splash

“Overall I would say that it is an ordinary cigar that is a pleasant and easy smoke with no real wow factor. I personally like the nubs so I was slightly disappointed in this. I will try this again but may not go looking for one.” -Sandeep (Djangos)

Blind Cigar Review: Brun del Ré | 1638 Gran Toro Ltd. Edition

“A deceivingly strong stogie considering how smooth it is; about medium-bodied and with a relatively understated flavor profile, and a relatively high smoke output that is not offensive. Easily a 90+ points cigar in my book, reminding me of some of my favorite Dominican puros.” -Stefan (Stefan)

Blind Cigar Review: Flores y Rodriguez | 10th Anniversary Reserva Limitada Figurado

“Even though I found this cigar lacking a wow factor, the flavors were solid. Defined transitions between the thirds held my interest. I wouldn’t grab this one for a special occasion although I would gladly smoke one again.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)

Blind Cigar Review: Falto | 20th Anniversary Los Procesos

“The second third flavors were well balanced and provided an amazing smoking experience. While the final third initially offered some great flavors, it soon developed a harshness that was difficult to get past. We got off on the wrong foot, however, when the wide open draw prevented the cigar from burning without constant attention in the first third. This most likely led to the acrid notes on the finish.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)
