Blind Cigar Review: La Flor Dominicana | Air Bender Maduro Chisel

“I wanted to rate this cigar higher. The beginning and middle had some really nice flavors coming through. The smoke output on each draw was plentiful. The oily wrapper and chisel tip made it easy to smoke. All that, and then the final third hit a brick wall. Relights galore and harsh flavors just made the overall rating from me fall off a cliff. I would hope this stick was an anomaly in an otherwise solid blend. If I had stopped after the second third I would be happy.” -Matthew T. (A Huge Nerd)

Blind Cigar Review: Southern Draw | Firethorn Toro

“With a lot of cigars I find the cedar to be a bit heavy handed, not so with this one. The transition from a mature cedar to slightly charred then to a young sweeter one was very nice. The addition of hay, grass and leather paired well with the background flavors of nuts, coffee and cocoa. This cigar certainly offered me a very pleasant smoking experience.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)

Blind Cigar Review: Ventura | Archetype Strange Passage Robusto

“This is a cigar that I would gladly smoke again. While the flavors may not have gone through a roller coaster of transitions, they were consistent and well balanced. The retrohale was not bitter or harsh, and really complimented the flavors on the palate. It burned well and produced great smoke. I look forward to finding out about this cigar.” –Matthew T.

Blind Cigar Review: Herrera Esteli | Toro Especial Tubo

“This cigar offered up a nice balanced mix of cedar and coffee throughout. Some cocoa, orange zest and leather kept me engaged while the bookend pepper was a nice addition. Maybe not a special occasion smoke, it’s certainly one to keep on hand.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)

Blind Cigar Review: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust | Sobremesa Short Churchill

“This was a great smoke & right in my wheelhouse. It had plenty of pepper, salt, cream, nuts and some chocolate notes. This is a strong cigar, and probably not something you want as your 1st cigar of the day.” –Mickey T. (irratebass)

Blind Cigar Review: La Gloria Cubana | Serie RF No. 13

“One draw issue aside, this was an excellent smoke, one I really, really hope in on the bargain side of things so I can stock up, but I’m guessing it’s likely a premium. Overall it was well constructed, burned great, had excellent thick smoke output, and really well balanced flavor. One I will definitely seek out again, regardless of price! Highly recommended.” -Derek (StogieNinja)
