Blind Cigar Review: Dunbarton T&T | Muestra de Saka Nacatamale

“Overall a very pleasant stick. Once it started mellowing out a little bit the cigar became a very nice smoke. This is one I’ll be looking at more closely after the reveal, and would consider a box purchase on if the price is right. ” -Dave W. (mdwest)

Blind Cigar Review: Diesel | Grind (2017) Robusto

“Pretty solid effort. A really darkly attractive cigar with big rich flavors in the earthy/woody range with some interesting side notes of herbs and spices coming in at a few points. I’d love to stick a box of these in the back of my cabinet and forget about them for a year or two. I’ll bet they really sing with a little age. ” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: CAO | Amazon Anaconda

“Long story short, it was OK. Short story not so short, the first two thirds were tasty, and seemed to be cohesive. The final third just failed in my estimation. The flavors were unpleasant and harsh. If this cigar could have continued the same flavor profile, I would have rated it much higher. ” -Matthew T. (A Huge Nerd)

Blind Cigar Review: Hoyo | La Amistad Silver Robusto

“I was a little concerned on the cold draw before lighting, but this cigar was really pretty good. Good flavor combinations, and lots of smoke output. It did burn a bit on the fast side, but the flavors that came throughout the smoking experience were tasty and made sense together. I would smoke this again.” -Matthew T. (A Huge Nerd)

Blind Cigar Review: HR | Blue Petite Edmundo

“Really good cigar. Solid core flavors, great initial flavor blast from the closed foot, and some interesting transitions along the way. There were a few minor construction issues, it wasn’t tremendously nuanced and it got a little flat toward the end, but there’s still good stuff happening here. I’d smoke a ton of these. ” -John I.

Blind Cigar Review: Cohiba | Blue Robusto

“My vocabulary of superlatives are inadequate to do this justice. Easily one of the best, and most memorable cigars I’ve ever had. Complex, and really nicely nuanced. It doesn’t really progress through “changes” like a lot of cigars, instead there are all kinds of things happening, all the time.” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: AVO | Syncro South America Ritmo Toro

“In terms of flavor, this would likely be a good introductory cigar for a novice. The flavor profile is light, accessible and pleasant. Creamy, floral and mild mannered with a bit of a kick toward the end. Anyone with an interest in experiencing cigars would likely be impressed. The construction problems would be a drawback for a newcomer however.” -John I. (John I.)

“This cigar was, well, outstanding to me. This is something I could enjoy at any time and could even be something that I’d smoke very regularly. The flavors caught my attention at the beginning and the constant evolution kept me coming back for more. It was a surprisingly long smoking cigar with made it that much better.” -Isaac M. (The Nothing)
