Blind Cigar Review: MBombay | Vintage Reserve Lancero 1973

“Perfectly balanced and medium bodied is the best way to sum up this cigar. I had the opportunity to smoke two of these premium cigar offerings… that is like 16″ of cigar.. never once did a harsh flavor cross my palate. On the exhale we had cedar, white pepper, herbs, antique tobacco, malts, and a little bit of sweetness. Retro had a delicious creamy airy lemon cake and cedar. Multi-country blend for sure. Perfect construction and burn. This cigar had flavors that reminded me of a old Cuban cigar from the 1980’s with double the damn body. Aroma had an ancient library smell. This cigar would do very well in the European market. I’m done. Bravo.” -Matt C. (Big Matt)

Blind Cigar Review: Fratello | Boxer

“Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this cigar. Performance and construction were great and the smoking experience was most enjoyable. Although not overly complex in the tasting department, the flavors I experienced were very enjoyable and tastes my palate could easily relate too. I would certainly not be ashamed to pass this stick out to guest and experienced aficionados who I smoke with on a regular basis. Anxious to see what this stick is so I can pick some more up.” -Kyle (kaleehb)

Blind Cigar Review: A.J. Fernandez | Last Call

“Overall, this is a very good cigar that will only benefit with a little more humidor time, say 3-6 months. I think this cigar might incorporate an Ecuadorian wrapper, due to the flavor profile (grass) however with its rosado shade it has me second guessing myself. I would easily recommend this cigar to a cigar newbie (on a full stomach) or a seasoned cigar enthusiast. This is a smoke I hope to get the chance to reach for again and again.” -Matt C. (Big Matt)

Blind Cigar Review: Quesada | Reserva Privada Oscuro Robusto

“This is a cigar I would happily smoke again while I was doing something different to occupy my time such as shooting skeet or at the golf driving range. The profile peaked in the second third but then fell off with the mineral flavors in the final third. I put the cigar down with a little less than 2 inches as I felt the profile wasn’t going to change. Smoke output was plentiful and stormed off the foot. I feel this cigar might improve with age and is worthy of a redux.” -Matt C. (Big Matt)

Blind Cigar Review: Cornelius & Anthony | Cornelius Toro

“This is a cigar that I feel could benefit from an extended nap in the humidor to smooth out the edges and let the lesser, more nuanced flavors emerge. As it is, it is a good smoke, but I would hesitate to recommend it to a new smoker, and would certainly not have someone try this one for their first retrohale. Once I find out what this is, I may hunt down a few to bury in the humidor for 12 months or more…just to see what father time can do. ” -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
