Blind Cigar Review: Crowned Heads | Mil Días Edmundo

“From start to finish this cigar was a winner in my opinion. The creaminess, the floral notes along with the fruity zest, and the leather note all worked well together. But man does that strength sneak up on you. This is definitely a cigar I’d try again. But not on an empty stomach. I’d give this a ‘great’. Box worthy for sure. ” -Kevin J. (maninblack77)

Blind Cigar Review: Fratello | Camo Verde Robusto

“A cigar that can be smoked anytime. Morning, afternoon, or even to end a long day, this cigar gives you just enough to stay interested and engaged. It won’t overpower you or blast you with heavy doses of flavor. Instead, it offers a relaxing session that would go great with some easy listening tunes. ” -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)

Blind Cigar Review: CAO | Bones Chicken Foot

“A cigar with some of the classic notes and transitions that mesh well together. Always been a fan of red pepper and coffee notes in cigars, and to end with a mellowed out cinnamon bread, was very rewarding. I wouldn’t run out and buy boxes of these, but I could definitely smoke this again.” -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)

“This cigar was Top Notch from start to finish. It looked great prior to lighting it on fire AND it delivered a slew of really nice flavors once the foot was torched. Add in excellent construction from start to finish and this is easily a cigar that will satisfy the majority of smokers out there…” -Matt Cade (CadeTNCC)

Blind Cigar Review: Sindicato | Cubico Toro

“The fact there was not much going on in the flavor and body of this cigar until almost halfway deducted points here, although it did develop into a very flavorful cigar. Had the cigar started as it finished, and developed as it did, it would have been a phenomenal smoking experience. Even though it did start off on the light side, I really do look forward to trying it again. This would be a great cigar to start the day with, as it does end up flavorful and can easily be smoked first thing on an empty stomach. Medium roast coffee with cream or sweet tea would be the strongest beverage to try and pair in the morning, as anything stronger would easily overrun it, even at the end. This would also be a cigar, though on the large side, that I would not be afraid to hand to anyone to enjoy. ” -Kevin A. (Kevin A

Blind Cigar Review: Pantheon | Infernos Churchill

“This was a cigar that I would recommend smoking after a good meal. It offers some consistent flavors, without much change, so you won’t miss out on much if you’re hanging out with some fellow brothers or sisters at a lounge. I enjoyed the profile, albeit the notes weren’t extremely potent though. So keep that in mind as well. ” -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)

Blind Cigar Review: Brick House | Maduro Toro

“This is actually an easy cigar to sum up. If you like full bodied cigars that burn slow and deliver the straight forward flavors of earth and black pepper, then you will probably enjoy this cigar. If those flavors aren’t your jam and you’re inclined to smoke something with a little nuance or transitions… smoke something else. ” -Matt Cade (CadeTNCC)

Blind Cigar Review: E.P. Carrillo | Selección Oscuro Especial No. 6

“If you are in to earthy, spicy cigars, that perform well and don’t disappoint, then this is a cigar for you. It developed from medium to the high end of medium full throughout that smoking experience on an almost linear level. No abrupt changes in strength or body, and no re-lights or touchups needed. While it did end up a little bitter and spicy at the end, novice smokers should feel no fear with this cigar, as long as it is paired with something to offset the strength at the end, like a nice aged rum. Stout beer would overrun it, as would cask strength scotch or barrel proof bourbon. All in all a great experience that I look forward to trying again!” -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)

Blind Cigar Review: United Cigar | Classic Cuban Torpedo

“While the cigar’s appearance didn’t impress me at all initially, this was a clear cut case of never judging a book by its cover. The cigar provided a wide array of flavors and transitions and the end result was a highly enjoyable cigar from start to finish. I would definitely smoke it again.” -Matt Cade (CadeTNCC)
