Blind Cigar Review: CAO | Nicaragua Granada Score 90%

Blind Cigar Review: CAO | Nicaragua Granada

“This is a cigar I would smoke any day. If you are looking for a nicely flavored cigar without any pepper this would be a great smoke. The earthiness along with the smooth and creamy profile was very pleasant. There was a great blend of coffee, cocoa, hint of leather, baking spices and leafy floral. I really enjoyed this and recommend this cigar for any level of cigar smoker. ” -Diana (ArmyRN)

Blind Cigar Review: Nestor Miranda Collection | Corojo Coffee Break

“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)
