Blind Cigar Review: Southern Draw | IGNITE 2019 Private Blend Habano #3

“This cigar was just what I needed. With the coronavirus going on the cigar shops are closed, except for carry out and some are doing deliveries….which is a 1st I believe. Anyway this was the 1st day that was nice enough for me to spark up in my man cave *garage* and even though there wasn’t many flavors on this cigar what I got was wood, some sweet tobacco and a bit of leather. The cigar still held up and didn’t let me down……stay safe everyone this is the end of the world……..if ya got em’ smoke em’.” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

“I was leery about the first third, hoping it may have some complexity of this blend, however i was delightfully surprised bu the last two thirds. A menagerie of roasted and tasty charred flavors intermingling with sweet caramel and chocolate flavors made this end up being two thumbs up for me! Paired with flawless appearance, construction and burn made it all the better. Top notch med-full bodied smoke!” -John A. (Bostoneo)

“I feel the only downside to this cigar was the draw but because of how much flavor I got off cigar, it ended up not bothering me that much. I felt the second third was the best part of this cigar. Although it smoked fast, the flavor of slight pepper, salted pretzels and caramel was enjoyable. For a mild to medium cigar I though this was very flavorful. For me this would be a perfect cigar for a golf course.” -Jake P. (Jake P.)

Blind Cigar Review: Oliva | Gilberto Reserva Noir Robusto

“I really enjoyed this cigar. Burned nice at a great pace with some wonderful Flavors. Starting with the pepper and earth which moved into the roasted nuts and bitter veggie flavors. While I was smoking this I had a glass of bourbon which paired nicely. The sweetness from my bourbon and the bitter roasted flavors from the cigar was excellent. I look forward to seeing what this was so I can pick up more.” -Jake P. (Jake P.)

“Loved it, perfect way to wind down after a day of screaming kids and dealing with broken cars. I don’t drink much so I compare flavors to what would pair well with my drink of choice which is coffee, and let me tell you, this was a perfect match. Only issue I had was, I wanted another. Great smoke, great experience.” -Joseph S. (Bearded Bastard)

“I know this particular vitola is suppose to be more of a cigar snob size but I love them when they’re done well. This one is fantastic. The burn, smoke output, and journey of flavors set this apart from most lanceros that I have smoked. I can’t recommend these enough. Go out and buy some. ” -Alan (Eulogy)

Blind Cigar Review: Hiram & Solomon | Shriner Toro

“Though this cigar lacked body, in my opinion, I can not overstate how good this cigar was. I could see some people calling it one dimensional but in all honesty this cigar was a flavor bomb. Forgoing strength and body for the benefit of making a more flavorful blend. This cigar is perfect for anyone looking to expand their palate away from the light body, airy, cigars of the world. Pick one up and decided for yourself.” -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)
