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)

“The final third of this cigar really upped the enjoyment factor. It took it from good to very good in my opinion. I have always been a fan of cigars with many transitions, and this one did not let me down and threw in a completely unexpected and unique flavor, that made the cigar a true star. The strength and body stayed right in the medium range and can be enjoyed by anyone. The flavors would go well with morning coffee as well as a lighter bodied beer that won’t overrun it. I am really looking forward to finding out what this cigar is and recommend you try it when the secret is out! ” -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)

Blind Cigar Review: Villiger | La Vencedora Churchill

“Just in terms of flavor this was actually a very good cigar. The smoke output was creamy, the draw was nice if I held it just right, and it burned well even with an almost destroyed wrapper. The size was very large though and with the lack of profile changes did make it a bit one dimensional.” -Alan (Eulogy)

Easily worth buying a fiver. ” -Kevin J. (maninblack77)

Blind Cigar Review: Southern Draw | Cedrus Toro

I liked this cigar quite a bit. While I was initially worried about that strong mesquite woodsiness overpowering any other flavors that might come my way, the cigar managed – and managed well – to balance that with some other flavor notes that made this smoking experience one that I wouldn’t mind at all revisiting.” -Matt Cade (CADE)

“Featuring very little in the way of complexity and with only some minor transitions throughout the smoking experience, I won’t go so far as to say this is a boring cigar. Rather this was a fine cigar featuring fine flavors and fine construction. That’s it, it was just “fine” all around. ” -Matt Cade (CADE)

Blind Cigar Review: AVO | Improvisation LE20

“The cigar started off well, developed nicely, then finished with a slight harshness that wasn’t quite enjoyable. It heated up quite a bit in the final third. Maybe smoking it slower would eliminate this, but I am not 100% sure. All in all a decent smoke. The power behind it as it transitioned through the final two thirds was a bit of a surprise, and may prove too strong for a newer smoker. I was expecting it to stay in the medium range with the sweeter notes from the beginning.” -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)

“Rarely is ever do I have a cigar experience that is as epic as this was. The flavors and aromas were beyond extraordinary and they worked so well together .

“It’s a fantastic cigar. I’m not going to say it will wow you with it’s dynamic profile changes because it won’t. The flavors are the same from beginning to end but they’re crisp and bold the entire time. It just does so many things right that it’s impossible not to recommend and if I was after a great experience that I was just wanting to relax and enjoy smoking I would reach for again and again. ” -Alan (Eulogy)
