Blind Cigar Review: La Barba | Ricochet Cru Mexi-Sol Coronita

“Magnificent cigar. Loved it. Perfect format for me personally, and a flavor profile to match. Big, bold flavors of earth with a world wind tour of coffee, molasses, spices, peppercorns and a bit of an anisette flashing around on the finish. Tremendous construction, nearly flawless. Very extremely well made. Nice progression in terms of strength, starts out very manageable and builds to an agreeable and enjoyable full body by the end. Quite possibly the perfect cigar to follow a big meal. I’m buying boxes. No doubt about it. ” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: La Flor Dominicana | 25th Anniversary

“I enjoyed this quite a lot. Nice change from my usual flavor preferences as well as being out of my comfort zone in terms of vitola. Served as a nice reminder to get out of your comfort zone once in a while. There’s a great big world of cigar opportunities out there and it’s nice to step out of your normal routine from time to time. This cigar stayed pretty much in the medium realm throughout in terms of strength and complexity. The display of really nicely refined baked good flavor, floral qualities, finishing with rich dark woody notes offered a nice range of experiences. Aside from some mid-smoke missteps in construction this was a real joy of a cigar. ” -John I. (John I.)

“If you are a fan of mild cigars this is a real winner. The depth of flavors were terrific, smoke output was phenomenal, and profile changes kept me engaged. I would certainly smoke this again and again. ” -Alan (Eulogy)

Blind Cigar Review: La Palina | Kiluna Natural Robusto

“The intensity of this cigar surprised the heck out of me; based on the sweet scents I picked up initially, I was shocked when the flavor and strength hit me in the face like a 2×4, and didn’t relent during the vast majority of the smoke. I like strong, and even though I generally prefer cigars that have a bit more depth, this was very enjoyable. Vitamin N is strong with this one, so make sure to keep as sweet beverage on hand if you’re sensitive to nicotine. I’d highly recommend this cigar to people who enjoy strong smokes, and strong drinks.” -Nate H. (SineQuaNon)

Blind Cigar Review: Casa Cuevas | La Mandarria

“I knew from the look and smell of this cigar I was in for a treat and it didn’t disappoint. Premium cigars should just preform this well in terms of construction, smoke output, and flavor. I think if there was just a bit more dynamic flavor profile changes it would have put it over the top. Still there’s so much here to like I have to recommend picking up a fiver and just enjoying a terrific cigar. ” -Alan (Eulogy)

Blind Cigar Review: San Pedro De Macoris | Sun Grown Robusto

“This is a very calm, but satisfying smoke; something I would enjoy in the morning with a medium-roast cup of coffee, or even just water. When I take a steady puff, the flavor arrives, does it’s thing, and then goes on it’s way, without lingering too long on the palate. I’m generally not a fan of mild cigars, but I like this one quite a bit. ” -Nate H. (SineQuaNon)

“This was a highly enjoyable cigar, and one that I would never turn down if given the opportunity to smoke again. The flavors might have been muddled, but very pleasing; despite having to remove a plug (which I truly believe to be a fluke) the burn and draw were darn near perfect. This was a truly quality cigar…” -Nate H. (SineQuaNon)

“I thoroughly enjoyed this Cigar despite its large size. Sweet and lightly peppery with an abundance of smoke output. The only drawback was the aforementioned bitterness at the end. Be prepared to invest some time. This is one is slow burner. ” -James H. (Keikan Jim)
