Blind Cigar Review: Drew Estate | Undercrown Shade Suprema Score 90%

Blind Cigar Review: Drew Estate | Undercrown Shade Suprema

“I feel the only downside to this cigar was the draw but because of how much flavor I got off cigar, it ended up not bothering me that much. I felt the second third was the best part of this cigar. Although it smoked fast, the flavor of slight pepper, salted pretzels and caramel was enjoyable. For a mild to medium cigar I though this was very flavorful. For me this would be a perfect cigar for a golf course.” -Jake P. (Jake P.)

Blind Cigar Review: Oliva | Gilberto Reserva Noir Robusto

“I really enjoyed this cigar. Burned nice at a great pace with some wonderful Flavors. Starting with the pepper and earth which moved into the roasted nuts and bitter veggie flavors. While I was smoking this I had a glass of bourbon which paired nicely. The sweetness from my bourbon and the bitter roasted flavors from the cigar was excellent. I look forward to seeing what this was so I can pick up more.” -Jake P. (Jake P.)

“This cigar was the tale of two cigars. If you are a smoker that only keeps the smoke on your palate, you would classify this cigar as one dimensional. Blowing some of the smoke out of your nose bring a delightful pine needle effervescent that makes this a well rounded cigar. I had to take points away do to the burn issues but overall it would be a good cigar that would be enjoyed by most people and would make a good everyday cigar.” -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)

“There is only one word to describe this cigar, phenomenal. Flavors were on point, construction was nearly flawless and it made the time spent smoking it memorable. I would recommend this cigar to anyone that loves a deep, dark, flavorful cigar. Hands down, this cigar is a Box buy and I can’t wait to find out what it is so I could do just THAT!” -Estevan Z.

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: Camacho | Distillery Edition Ecuador

“This was a very enjoyable cigar, and as mentioned earlier, I could easily see starting a lazy weekend morning with this cigar and a nice medium roast coffee. While this cigar was flavor filled, the lack of strength and body might turn some smokers off, so I can’t say this is a cigar for “everyone”. This is a cigar that I would keep a fiver on hand in the humi for those times when I want something different, and I would not hesitate to give one of these to a less experienced smoker so they can experience an complex blend of flavors, without being overly powerful and causing an unpleasant smoking experience. This is one darn good cigar” -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)

Blind Cigar Review: Espinosa | Laranja Reserva Escuro Toro

“The first two third ebbed and flowed with that savory meat and cappuccino creaminess and finally a dry cedar but I think the last third really takes a bunch away from the overall smoking experience. I feel like this cigar was made to experience with great friend and even better conversations. Making it a good everyday smoke.” -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)

Blind Cigar Review: Nestor Miranda | Special Selection Gran Toro

“This cigar was fun to smoke. Though it may not be my favorite size, I prefer a 42-48RG, I never once felt uncomfortable smoking it. It was ever changing and kept my interest throughout. This would make a great cigar that could be enjoyed as you were day drinking. Would pair well with any type of spirit and most wines due to it flavor profile. It is a little bit of a time commitment due to it’s size but well worth it. I will have to grab a few for my next beer fest or social gathering where I know I will have the time to enjoy it. ” -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)
