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: Villiger | San’Doro Claro Toro

“If you are looking for a well constructed Connecticut shade cigar this might be it. This cigar reminded me of a lighter version of the Quesada 40th Corona Clasica. The fruit on the retrohale mixed in with the pepper and cinnamon on the palate and the sweetness in the back of the throat were all very enjoyable. I easily recommend this cigar if your palate yearns for flavors in the mild strength category with body and complexity that hold up and build throughout the whole experience.” –Matt C. (Big Matt)

Quick Cigar Review: Padilla | La Pilar No. 4 Toro

The La Pilar No. 4 was a great burner. Clean burn line, no touch-ups and no relights. It had consistent smoke output and a draw that improved as it went on. The smoke had a nice full texture and pleasing aroma. The flavor profile was not extreme or complex but each individual flavor component was defined and clean. I always enjoy an increase in strength toward the end and the La Pilar No. 4 delivered that very well. At about 82 minutes, its a long burn time for a box-pressed Toro. That brings more value and more enjoyment. I would gladly reach for this cigar again.

Blind Cigar Review: La Flor Dominicana | Coronado

“I enjoyed the beginning of the cigar, but it began to drop off in flavor in the second third and became a little bitter. It’s not a bad cigar by the end; although, it’s very one dimensional. I would pick up another one if I wanted a long smoke that didn’t require a lot of attention.” -Alan (Eulogy)

Blind Cigar Review: Espinosa | Laranja Reserva Caixa

“Overall I really enjoyed this cigar. I really liked the overall spice from start to finish and then the hints of sweetness that would come and go. The smoke was very thick and creamy and coated my entire mouth. This cigar really pumped out a ton of smoke which was also impressive. I have nothing to complain about here and would gladly smoke this again in a heartbeat.” –Wes (SosaCub4Life)

Blind Cigar Review: C.L.E. | Signature 2015 Robusto

“I was impressed the first half of the cigar. The flavors were enjoyable and not over powering. The taste of cedar and espresso were pleasing to the palate. However, as I began the final third, the flavors gave way to a strong, sour taste. I do not enjoy this because it leaves a bad after taste. Overall I enjoyed the cigar and imagined myself smoking it by a camp fire at the beach or in the mountains.” –Eric (smalls29)
