Blind Cigar Review: Puros de Ballard | The Leaf by Oscar Connecticut Toro

“Lovers of milder to medium cigars are going to love this one. Even though not very complex in the first and middle thirds, it picks up and compensates in the final third. I usually enjoy a little more pepper and more spice so I was a little disappointed in that. More sweeter flavors would have been welcome, but then again this was not a maduro. Overall, a good cigar that I will definitely want to visit again.” -Sandeep (Djangos)

Blind Cigar Review: Nomad | S-307 Toro

“This cigar was so good, I would pick up a box of these in a heartbeat, two if it’s a limited edition. I’m guessing from the look and feel and the spice flavor profile that this is a Sumatra wrapper, my favorite. I’m not sure I’ve ever scored a cigar this high blind so I’m excited to see how the other reviewers see it. If everyone else had the same experience, this could be the highest scoring cigar ever, and it would deserve it. Kudos to whoever made this.” -Emmett (rhetorik)

Blind Cigar Review: Eiroa by CLE | Robusto

“While the flavor profile of this cigar really wasn’t in my personal wheelhouse, it will likely appeal to others who prefer sticks that bring a strong pepper punch on the front end and like smokes with grass and hay type overtones. While not very complex, it was not overly simple or boring either. It was well made and other than the single touch up required (not really a big deal at all) it performed nicely from start to finish as well.” -Dave (mdwest)
