Blind Cigar Review: Diesel | Estelí Puro Robusto Score 93%

Blind Cigar Review: Diesel | Estelí Puro Robusto

“I know plenty of people that would love this cigar from beginning to end. I personally just had that little trouble with the last half of the last third and it is really hard to find a word the best describes the turmoil the only word I could come up with is bitter but that isnt a fair description of the situation. Because the profile was balanced throughout the whole experience, maybe just too full for me would be a better description.” -Ryan H. (Ryan H.)

Blind Cigar Review: Crowned Heads | Four Kicks Capa Especial Corona Gorda

“At first, I really didn’t know if I was going to enjoy this one. The flavors were very good but the finish in the first third was throwing me off. Once the finish settled though, I really enjoyed this one. I’d definitely smoke this one again. The perfect pairing for me would be nice smooth bourbon or dark beer.” -James H. (Keikan Jim)

Blind Cigar Review: Drew Estate | Herrera Esteli Habano Edicion Limitada Lancero

“It is a great lancero. The flavors were bold and crisp with enough strength to provide body and depth. I realize that I forgot to mention this earlier but the smoke output was fantastic and the ash had a constant plume of smoke coming off of it. It’s an easy recommendation for me and worth picking up a fiver. ” -Alan (Eulogy)

Blind Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua | Número Uno Le Premier

“This cigar is my gig. Nice mild-medium bodied profile flavors of oak, vanilla, cream, custard, sweet milk caramels and the slightest bit of pepper to give this cigar great character. With unmatched smoothness, this is a cigar I could enjoy time after time after time. If this cigar remains consistent across multiple samples, I would definitely recommend buying these buy the box as it was truly a fantastic smoking experience!” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: Drew Estate | Undercrown Shade Corona Pequeña

“This was an excellent cigar for the size and time commitment. Sometimes you just need a cigar for 40-50 minutes but still want a kick in the teeth. I definitely got that here. I’d be interesting in picking more of these up to add to my rotation.” -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)

Blind Cigar Review: A.C.E. Prime | Pichardo Reserva Familiar San Andres Toro

“Overall this was a good cigar. Very consistent, flavorful, not terribly complex, but still delicious. Nothing stood out like a beacon for me, it was just easy going and well constructed with enough flavor. An easy recommendation if an affordable stick.” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: Punch | Knuckle Buster Toro

“Overall, it was an okay smoke, no frills for me at least. If you like earthy notes with some pepper and char, this will be right up your alley. Little gave in way of sweetness save the grassy notes in the beginning that quickly faded halfway through. Draw issues with it being too tightly rolled made smoking it at times a chore, however all in all, eh, try it… you might like it, you might not, you be the judge…” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: HVC | Serie A Perlas

“Overall, not a bad tasty cigar, definitely slightly above average if smoked correctly, slow and low. The loose draw made this one smoke rather quickly, 55 minutes to be exact, and forced the smoker to slow down and sip this sample. The creamy notes of almonds, leather, peanut shells, and wood complimented each other very nicely and provided a well-balanced experience. I believe this would only be amplified with a better constructed cigar and would be improved immensely. ” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: J.C. Newman | Diamond Crown Maximus No. 4 Toro

“Overall, this was an okay stick, however not something I myself would seek out. While it was fairly consistent in flavor, it did switch up things to a slight sweeter note on the second half. This would pair wonderfully with a port wine, porter & stout beer with its robust flavors and sweetness options they provide. Burn, construction and draw were spot on for this sample and couldn’t of asked for much better. If you like dark, char, and a bit of chocolate covered cherry sweetness, check out this blend for your enjoyment!” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: AJ Fernandez | Días De Gloria Short Churchill

“Overall this was a good cigar. That’s about it….it was good. There were hints of cream, sweetness, orange?? Cotton candy?? Cedar, wood and coffee….I kind of wished the weird flavors of cotton candy and orange stayed around longer so I don’t feel like it was my imagination. ” -Mickey T. (irratebass)
