Blind Cigar Review: Debonaire | Maduro Sagita Petite Lancero

“The cigar surprise me a little. The initial inspection had a rough wrapper that I usually associate with a sub par cigar. When all is said and done, I could see myself smoking a lot of these. Great cigar for those times when you’re rushed but want to light one up. If these sticks are priced right, I buy a bundle of them and keep them for the “in-between” times I want to have a puff. ” -Adam B. (Bushboy)

Blind Cigar Review: Carolina Blue | Maduro Toro

“This was a very full bodied cigar. I know that I am more sensitive to nicotine and pepper than most, but it wasn’t overpowering or unpleasant for me. If I hadn’t just eaten before I’m not sure if my opinion would be the same. The flavors were rich but didn’t have a real evolution throughout. If you’re a fan of rich full bodied cigars this is a great choice, but I would need to be prepared to smoke something this powerful again. ” -Alan (Eulogy)

“Overall this was a solid performing smoke. A bit full bodied and strong for sure, make sure you have something in your stomach before smoking this bad boy, it will hit you going into the second half. Flavors were spot on for a full bodied smoke and diverse enough to make it interesting. Try one out, may be your next full bodied goto!” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Quick Cigar Review: Foundation | Menelik

Draw, burn, and construction were spot on and should be a mile marker what the quality of how a cigar should be rolled and constructed. The flavor profiles of chocolate, coffee, and leather appeared to be the dominate flavor profiles throughout the cigar which provided a nice relaxing experience. While I did not pair it with anything, a mocha latte or hot chocolate would pair wonderfully with this cigar as they would compliment each other immensely. Complexity was not in full force, however the profile was enjoyable enough to keep me happy throughout the duration of the session. Definitely something you should pick up if ever given the chance to attend a Foundation event!

Blind Cigar Review: Crowned Heads | Headley Grange Black Dog Dobles

“This was a not a flavor profile that fit my wheelhouse. Having said that, for someone who likes hazelnut and some black licorice this will be a decent cigar for them. I didn’t like the bitterness of the cigar but it did progress into a tartness that wasn’t distasteful to me. I would have thought the cigar would be stronger than it was given the types of flavors but it remained a medium to full, on the more medium side for me. A decent smoke for a specific palette.” –Diana (ArmyRN)

Blind Cigar Review: Emilio | Cavatina Toro

” The Cigar was so delicious out the gate. However, the lack of complexity and linear flavor profile of the Cigar could easily bore most people. I thoroughly enjoyed the flavors the tobacco provided as it was very delicious and the construction, burn and especially the draw was a top notch. A good cigar if you don’t want to be thrilled but enjoy a nice moderately peppery sweet smoke. ” -John A. (John A.)

Blind Cigar Review: Black Works Studio | Boondock Saint Corona Larga

“It’s hard for me to assign a top rating to any cigar, and I try to reserve the highest mark for something really wondrous. This is about as close to cigar perfection for me as I can imagine. Big bold flavors with a lot of strength. Packs a punch but the potency was never over the top and the overall balance between strength and flavor was really thoroughly impressive. ” -John I.

Blind Cigar Review: Nomad | Fin de los Mundos Toro

“Man, this was a fun cigar. I have to blame myself for the performance at the beginning, even if it did feel and look ok. Once I gave it the deeper cut, this cigar was awesome. The savory flavors kept me attached the whole way through. There was a lot more complexity in the first third that seemed to tone down through the rest of the cigar; I really wish it just kept going. ” -Isaac M. (The Nothing)
