Blind Cigar Review: J.C. Newman | The American No. 3

“The aroma of berries and chocolate were very inviting and promising. However, upon lighting, the chocolate turned to a coffee flavor with hints of berries. It was a pleasant cigar int he beginning. As I approach the second third, the berries slowly diminished and the coffee flavor took over. The one plus was the pepper flavors that left a nice tingle on the lips. As time went on, the coffee turned bitter like the bottom of a pot that had been sitting on the burner far too long. Eventually I was left with a bitter taste with only the peppery tingle keeping me going. Not sure if I would want this one again.” -Eric (smalls29)

Blind Cigar Review: La Aurora | 1985 Maduro Robusto

“Any cigar that does not become bitter near the end is a good one. The spices for most of the time were a nice blend of cinnamon and nutmeg with a great spice tingle. Towards the end the black licorice came in but was not over bearing. All in all this is one that will pair well with a single malt scotch. It would be a nice addition to my humidor.” -Eric (smalls29)

Blind Cigar Review: Cohiba | Siglo II

“Overall this cigar was very mild, very smooth, very one dimensional. No pepper spice at anywhere during the smoke. There are some people out there that like a super mild, no spice Connecticut. I am not one of those people. Even though this cigar was extremely well made, it’s just not my thing.” -Wes (SosaCub4Life)

“I bumped this one a little higher than most mainly because the overall of the cigar was phenomenal. The build was sharp, looked pleasant, and had a high end feel to it. The aromas and flavor profile that came through will please every single style of cigar smoker. Lastly, the smoothness of the draw and simpleness of the cigar experience from light and go, this cigar was top notch and should be enjoyed by as many people as possible. ” -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)

“Overall this was a very nice cigar for me. It started out with a lot of strong pepper spice but then as it went on the spice calmed down but was always there. It became full, thick and creamy and the construction was perfect.” -Wes (SosaCub4Life)

Blind Cigar Review: Crux | Epicure Galant Toro

“I find myself enjoying this more while reflecting back on it. The flavor profile was a very traditional style Nicaraguan with tobacco, cedar, leather, and pepper but it all worked very well when taken as a whole. The retrohale provided a bit of a break from the draw and even though the draw was a bit tight it was a good cigar for what it was. It’s not a game changing cigar but it’s a solid smoke and certainly worth your time. ” -Alan (Eulogy)

“This was a wonderful experience. The flavors were nice and constant and never strayed in to bitterness and yuck. The cedar flavor was there from begging to end. The best part was the slightly sweet taste left on the palate. The aroma was that of a cedar log burning in the fireplace that made this one even more enjoyable. Definitely one for the humidor. ” -Eric (smalls29)

Blind Cigar Review: La Flor Dominicana | Ligero A

“This was probably one of my most favorite reviews that I have done. I was dreading initially smoking this cigar only because of the vitola and amount of time I knew was required. However, as soon as the first third started and the flavor profile showed itself, I was hooked. Between the good balance of earth and barnyard, to the coffee and creamy finish, this cigar had an overall complexity that was second to none. You will need to block off a solid amount of time, but by no means will you be disappointed. This cigar will go well with coffee, libations, or a Pepsi. Enjoy these as much as possible.” -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)

“Even though this cigar was a mild/medium taste, the woody flavors had a nice balance throughout. There were flavors of oak and cherry wood with a nice campfire aroma coming from the smoke. The after-taste was not over powering and left a nice taste behind. Even though a bitter flavor showed, it did not come until almost at the end. Overall I am very pleased and would love to enjoy this one again.” -Eric (smalls29)

Blind Cigar Review: Caldwell | Hit and Run Corona Gorda

“I was very surprised by this stick. After the light aromas on the prelight, the cigar was full of great flavors. It was very cubanesque from the look and vitola to the flavor. I would love to smoke this in the morning with a cup of coffee. The stick had a couple of faults but was easy to overlook because the flavor was so good. I even nubbed this thing all the way down.” -Matt (Mattehh)
