Blind Cigar Review: Tatuaje | TAA 2020

“I was sold from from first puff. Love a good closed foot that gives a quick reveal of the wrapper flavor at first light. This cigar has nice and subtle transitions. It does change, but not much. Thoroughly enjoyable smoke. Maintained a solid finish throughout that left me enjoying the flavors until the next draw.  I’d pick this cigar up again.” -Randy B.

Blind Cigar Review: Dunbarton T&T | Muestra de Saka Unstolen Valor

“While I wasn’t all that impressed with this cigar at the beginning it really came to life in the second third. Once that happened I was really into the cigar. The transition into the second third came rapidly, and I’m sure my expression and happiness at that time was visible to anyone around. Even thirty minutes after smoking this cigar, the remains were still felt and tasted on my lips, and I was pretty darn close to heaven. This is something I can easily place into my rotation. And man does it burn for a long time.” -Isaac M. (The Nothing)

Blind Cigar Review: Hiram & Solomon | Fellow Craft Toro

“This cigar had some fantastic flavor to start off. From the looks of this dark wrapper I was expecting some good dark earthy flavors. That is exactly what I was getting. Molasses, spice and wood notes mixed in made this very enjoyable. With that being said, right around the half way point it took a turn in the less enjoyably direction. The cigar was burning hot turning most of the flavor to char. Had to take more time in between puffs to lessen that. Although it eventually subsided the damage I think was done and just mushed all the flavors together to get a mostly musty earth. Not how I would have liked it to end.” -Jake P. (Jake P.)

Blind Cigar Review: Back2Back | Connecticut 6 x 60

“I thought this was a great cigar. I enjoyed the bigger ring gage on this cigar, It had a great feel in your hand. I felt this cigar smoked just liked it smelled. It was very wood heavy with a honey sweetness. It was on the milder side on strength but I feel that even someone who leans to a stronger cigar would enjoy this cigar.” -Jake P. (Jake P.)

Blind Cigar Review: Cavalier Genève | Black Series II Toro

“Great cigar! Taste was excellent with an amazing burn. Hard to find anything wrong. The chocolate and earthiness was great. Just the right amount of bitterness to the chocolate flavors so it did not overpower the other flavors. I really enjoyed the raisins and dated in the first and second third. I would have like them to finish off the cigar however I can not complain how it finished with the rustic flavor.” -Jake P. (Jake P.)

“There are not enough words to say how much I liked this cigar. It was engaging and kept my interest to whole time. I really didn’t want to set it down. In my notes I keep saying there was something so familiar about this cigar so I really can’t wait to find out what it was. It is box worthy and will for sure find it’s way into my daily rotation. Find some, smoke some and enjoy.” -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)

Blind Cigar Review: Gran Habano | Cabinet Selection Robusto

“First and foremost, this is a cigar that must be retrohaled to be appreciated. The smoke on the palate is fine but the vanilla essence in the sinuses for the final two third made me want more. I could see this as the perfect way to kill an hour with friends at a BBQ or in conversation. It won’t pull all of your attention away from the people and times you’re enjoy. Hell it might even enhance them. ” -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)

Blind Cigar Review: Battleground | General Longstreet

“Just like you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover, you shouldn’t judge this cigar by it’s wrapper. Looking at this cigar and one might say words like ugly, rough looking, and poorly made but that is far from true. The burn, the favors, and performance of this cigar punch above it’s weight class. The extra tobacco in the center of this cigar caused it to lose the intensity and body that I loved in the first third. While the weird mishmash of flavors, in the final third, had me conflicted but in the end the cigar made me go and grab my nub tool and smoke it till I was burning my lips. This is a cigar that I would reach for again and again. If it had an option for a smaller ring gauge size and it would be a box buy. Well done!” -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)
