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

“So I must start off with this statement: I need to smoke this cigar again to get a true idea of what it is all about. That being said there are some high notes but that can not overcome the tight draw. This is the number one killer of any cigar for me. Disappointing…” -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)

Blind Cigar Review: Perdomo | Estate Selección Vintage Maduro Imperio

“The first third was great and I was hoping that it would continue but it fell off at the middle and went off the rails at the end in terms of flavor. The look and feel of the cigar make me think it’s very well made and even with ashy flavor at the end it still had great smoke production and produced a nice creamy smoke. It’s easier for me to forgive something that burns a little wonky or has a tight draw but the flavor has to be there. ” -Alan (Eulogy)

Blind Cigar Review: Kristoff | Vengeance Toro

“Really excellent cigar. A bit larger format than I usually reach for, but the super sexy raggedy foot, and the pigtail cap really got my heart racing when I first saw this. Construction was exceptional throughout, and the overall flavor profile was really enjoyable. Nice sweet and super ripe tobacco on point here along with flirtations with some spice, espresso, and pepper along the way. Magnificent cigar. ” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: Quorum | Maduro Toro

“The first third was good with flavors of woods and dark fruit with a nice sweet finish. The second third was mediocre at best and at one point I considered putting it down. I’m glad I didn’t though because it picked back up in the final third where it shined. I wouldn’t pay a premium for this one, but I would smoke it again. ” -James H. (Keikan Jim)

Blind Cigar Review: PDR | El Trovador Maduro Robusto

“While I typically do not prefer cigars that are “one dimensional”, I do appreciate ones that have minimal transitions, with outstanding representations of the flavors that are there. This is one of those cigars. My only complaint is this was a relatively fast burner. It was one that I wished I had a toro version of, cause I wasn’t ready to be done when the nub got to hot to hold! ” -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)

“My only wish is there was a wow factor with the cigar. While the flavors that were there were good and well represented what they should, there was never that “ah-ha” moment during the smoking experience making me wonder what goodness is going to come next. It was an enjoyable cigar, and one that I would smoke again” -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)

Blind Cigar Review: La Aurora | 1985 Maduro Robusto

“Any cigar that does not become bitter near the end is a good one. The spices for most of the time were a nice blend of cinnamon and nutmeg with a great spice tingle. Towards the end the black licorice came in but was not over bearing. All in all this is one that will pair well with a single malt scotch. It would be a nice addition to my humidor.” -Eric (smalls29)
