Blind Cigar Review: Ventura | Archetype Chapter 3 Sacred Scales Robusto

“A cigar I hated to lose in the process of smoking. Great notes of cherry, earth, leather, cocoa, and oak make this a excellent cigar. Great ash that hung on to the cigar for 30 minutes or better. Five or more of these cigar would round out your humidor perfectly.” -Sean F. (fullermaine)

Blind Cigar Review: Cubariqueño | Protocol Official Misconduct Corona Gorda

“This was an enjoyable cigar from start to finish. There were constant surprises in the profile from the pre-light all the way to the nub. It progressed the way I like for cigars to smoke. It started out with very pleasing flavors, and developed more, and different ones as it went along. The strength started out close to medium, and slowly progressed to finish solidly as medium full. This would pair well with bourbon or rum, and smokers with a little experience will get the most from it.” -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)

Blind Cigar Review: Caldwell | Eastern Standard Corretto

“While there was a little bit of concern from the mid-point on, all in all this cigar offered a very pleasant smoking experience. The transitions from start to finish were well defined and each complimented the next. It is firmly in the medium full range in strength and body, and would be most enjoyed by smokers with a little experience under their belt to truly appreciate what the cigar has to offer. This is definitely a cigar I would like to smoke again. ” -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)

Blind Cigar Review: Kristoff | Shade Grown Robusto

“A lot of flavors in this stick. Sweet to spicy notes are well balanced. A beautiful grayish-black ash gives way to a tri-colored ash. I would include this stick in my humidor. A nice relaxing smoke that pairs well with a dark coffee and a rain storm. Pick up a few when you have the opportunity.” -Sean F. (fullermaine)

“My only wish is there was a wow factor with the cigar. While the flavors that were there were good and well represented what they should, there was never that “ah-ha” moment during the smoking experience making me wonder what goodness is going to come next. It was an enjoyable cigar, and one that I would smoke again” -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)

“Oh my how I loved this cigar. While it did not offer up any transitions along its length, from the very start it did offer so many varying flavors that a change of profile would have ruined the experience. The aroma was also quite nice when the smoke hit the nostrils. I’m looking forward to smoking a lot more of these in the future.” -Isaac M. (The Nothing)

“I think in a smaller viola I would have been in love. The experience is a little too long to keep me fully engaged from start to finish due to the lack of a real dynamic change in profile. Still, it’s well worth your money and time. Great flavors, excellent construction, and a well made product puts this well into the buy and smoke again category. ” -Alan (Eulogy)

Blind Cigar Review: Camacho | Distillery Edition Connecticut Toro

“This is an exquisite, refined cigar. Distinct, well-defined flavors all around accentuated by a crisp burn line and overall fantastic construction. As my good friend Tut occasionally says “I can feel the blender’s intent while smoking this cigar” and I would agree with him in this case. My gut says this is a very pricey cigar but, as my wife would happily tell you, I’ve been wrong many many times before…” -Matt Cade (CADE)

“I know this particular vitola is suppose to be more of a cigar snob size but I love them when they’re done well. This one is fantastic. The burn, smoke output, and journey of flavors set this apart from most lanceros that I have smoked. I can’t recommend these enough. Go out and buy some. ” -Alan (Eulogy)

Blind Cigar Review: La Aurora | 115th Anniversary Robusto

“I really dug this cigar even though it’s not something that’s in my normal flavor profile. While the flavors were consistent throughout they were fairly satisfying. I really enjoyed the saltiness begging me to have something close at hand to drink. The burn was excellent. The ash fell through each third. This cigar was just a solid performer from start to finish.” -Isaac M. (The Nothing)

“Overall this was a decent smoke with the first half being my favorite. Rich buttery notes dominated the profile throughout and provided ample amounts of deliciousness for nearly and hour and a half. Recommended for those who enjoy mild and medium bodied sticks, this would be a good staple to add to almost any aficionados humidor. ” -John A. (Bostoneo)
