Blind Cigar Review: Punch | Knuckle Buster Toro Score 88%

Blind Cigar Review: Punch | Knuckle Buster Toro

“Overall, it was an okay smoke, no frills for me at least. If you like earthy notes with some pepper and char, this will be right up your alley. Little gave in way of sweetness save the grassy notes in the beginning that quickly faded halfway through. Draw issues with it being too tightly rolled made smoking it at times a chore, however all in all, eh, try it… you might like it, you might not, you be the judge…” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: HVC | Serie A Perlas

“Overall, not a bad tasty cigar, definitely slightly above average if smoked correctly, slow and low. The loose draw made this one smoke rather quickly, 55 minutes to be exact, and forced the smoker to slow down and sip this sample. The creamy notes of almonds, leather, peanut shells, and wood complimented each other very nicely and provided a well-balanced experience. I believe this would only be amplified with a better constructed cigar and would be improved immensely. ” -John A. (Bostoneo)

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

“Overall, this was an okay stick, however not something I myself would seek out. While it was fairly consistent in flavor, it did switch up things to a slight sweeter note on the second half. This would pair wonderfully with a port wine, porter & stout beer with its robust flavors and sweetness options they provide. Burn, construction and draw were spot on for this sample and couldn’t of asked for much better. If you like dark, char, and a bit of chocolate covered cherry sweetness, check out this blend for your enjoyment!” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: AJ Fernandez | Días De Gloria Short Churchill

“Overall this was a good cigar. That’s about it….it was good. There were hints of cream, sweetness, orange?? Cotton candy?? Cedar, wood and coffee….I kind of wished the weird flavors of cotton candy and orange stayed around longer so I don’t feel like it was my imagination. ” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

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: 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: Cubariqueño | Protocol Themis Corona Gorda

“Overall, a tasty cigar when you want something similar to a nice glass of bourbon. Mild-medium in body, this blend exemplifies tasty notes of vanilla, oak, and bourbon like sweetness. Easy to smoke from top to bottom, this is an easy recommendation for a well balanced smoke that can be enjoyed anytime without any reservations for a relaxing experience.” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: Alec Bradley | Mundial PL #5

“This cigar would have rated much higher in this this category if it were not for the final third. The bitterness that crept in in the final third took it down a few notches along with the work it took to keep it going. The first two thirds shined as bright as the morning sun. The final third was more like a cloudy day with the threat of rain. ” -James H. (Keikan Jim)
