Blind Cigar Review: Montecristo | Espada Oscuro Guard

“I was leery about the first third, hoping it may have some complexity of this blend, however i was delightfully surprised bu the last two thirds. A menagerie of roasted and tasty charred flavors intermingling with sweet caramel and chocolate flavors made this end up being two thumbs up for me! Paired with flawless appearance, construction and burn made it all the better. Top notch med-full bodied smoke!” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: Henry Clay | War Hawk Toro

“Connecticut wrappers are a mystery these days. So many blenders have taken a page from the My Father Connecticut and given smokers something to get excited about when they see a Connecticut. The days of mild and straight forward are gone, and we’re treated with cigars such as this one. Complex flavors and body that never let up during the whole session. I’d seek some of these out if I was you. You won’t regret it!” -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)

“There are times that you have a cigar and don’t want it to end. This is one such time. An incredible cigar that gave me intense spice behind a creamy espresso profile. I love the size, the profile, and will definitely be looking to pick more of these up for my personal collection.” -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)

“This was a very good cigar with excellent burn and flavor transitions. I would definitely smoke this one again. At first, I thought this was going to be a quick smoke, however, it continued to burn well beyond what I expected. Pair with coffee, English Brown or Lightly pleated Scotch. ” -James H. (Keikan Jim)

Blind Cigar Review: Aganorsa Leaf | Guardian of the Farm Nightwatch Orpheus

“Despite my reporting that the flavors were one dimensional, I am not beating up on the cigar. There is nothing wrong with a cigar being one dimensional. Sometimes you just want to smoke and not have to think about it. They are made for relaxation anyway right? I would definitely smoke this cigar again to compare notes.” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

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.)

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)
