Blind Cigar Review: Edgar Hoill | OG OSOK Chakal

“Overall, I truly enjoyed this cigar. It was a quicker smoke and had superb flavors coming through in the beginning. The second third started well, then faded slightly, but the overall was very pleasing. Fruit and black licorice are what you will find with this stick. So, if that interests you do yourself the favor of trying these out, you will not be disappointed.” -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)

Blind Cigar Review: Flores y Rodriguez | 10th Anniversary Reserva Limitada Figurado

“Even though I found this cigar lacking a wow factor, the flavors were solid. Defined transitions between the thirds held my interest. I wouldn’t grab this one for a special occasion although I would gladly smoke one again.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)

Blind Cigar Review: KILO | Toro

“I was kind of surprised by this cigar. Normally, I find that dark leafed cigars have a boldness to the flavor and strength that carry out through the entirety of the experience. The build up in strength, especially at the end, wasn’t present in this the cigar. The first third was by far my favorite and had the boldest flavors found; while the last two thirds seemed muted in comparison. It wasn’t a bad cigar but it did leave me wanting more in terms of flavor and complexity.” -Alan (Eulogy)

Blind Cigar Review: Balmoral | Anejo XO Rothschild Masivo

“Cedar dominated my sample, but the chocolate held it’s own to create a smooth finish. The leather that developed halfway through did a nice job of of balancing the flavors. While the additional coffee and allspice created some other dimensions that made this a solid cigar.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)

Blind Cigar Review: Warped | El Oso Cub

“Excellent cigar. Although not in my typical flavor wheelhouse, I appreciate a rich and powerful cigar. This will be great to smoke a couple of after a grilled fatty steak (like a bone in ribeye). This will probably also hold very well to whiskey, cutting some of the chili bite. I’d seek out a fiver.” -Jiunn (jliu)

Blind Cigar Review: A. Flores | 1975 Serie Privada Capa Maduro SP52

“This was a nice cigar full of robust flavors. The occasional anise, chocolate and tea created a nice contrast to the woodsy and earth tones. The balance was a little off near the end as the leather faded, but I would certainly smoke another one.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)

Blind Cigar Review: Nomad | Therapy Habano Toro

“Two words that would aptly describe this cigar would be Solid and Smooth. This is the embodiment of both. I say this would be the perfect cigar for a beginner, but not as an insult or slander, but because it is so well constructed and approachable. This is a great cigar and one that I can’t wait to see what it is because it has me stumped.” -Jack (Jack_H)

Blind Cigar Review: La Palina | Red Label Robusto

“This cigar was good in my opinion. It was nothing over the top and it was not yard bound after the first third. There were nice subtle flavors that a lot of smokers will enjoy. Again, not my cup of tea, but a good smoke nevertheless. Enjoy if you can and expect a nice lighter stick.” -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)

Blind Cigar Review: Punch (Cuba) | Punch Punch

“Overall, this was an excellent cigar. I believe this was either a Cuban cigar or a very well executed Connecticut shade cigar. The well balanced and nuanced flavors without being a pepper bomb is right in my wheelhouse. I would purchase a fiver of these to smoke now and lay down in the hopes of the bitterness being worked out.” -Jiunn (jliu)
