Blind Cigar Review: Nestor Miranda | Special Selection Gran Toro

“This cigar was fun to smoke. Though it may not be my favorite size, I prefer a 42-48RG, I never once felt uncomfortable smoking it. It was ever changing and kept my interest throughout. This would make a great cigar that could be enjoyed as you were day drinking. Would pair well with any type of spirit and most wines due to it flavor profile. It is a little bit of a time commitment due to it’s size but well worth it. I will have to grab a few for my next beer fest or social gathering where I know I will have the time to enjoy it. ” -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)

Quick Cigar Review: Don Lino Africa | Robusto

While I have never smoked the original Don Lino I have seen them in catalogs etc. but I can’t make any comparisons. I did enjoy this cigar but it’s not in my top 5 cigars that come from Miami Cigar and Company. The creaminess at the end really brought this cigar home and I do recommend picking up a fiver at the very least.

“I really enjoyed this cigar. There were plenty of transition to hold my attention with wood, floral, some nuts and quite a bit of milk chocolate. The interesting point to this cigar was the more I smoke it the lighter and creamier it got. I would definitely smoke this again. ” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

Quick Cigar Review: Don Rafa | Habano Robusto Score 87%

Quick Cigar Review: Don Rafa | Habano Robusto

The burn on needed a couple of touch-ups, but it burned pretty evenly. There was very little resistance on the draw which is what I prefer. Construction was top notch in my opinion, there was plenty of ash and smoke and the cigar stayed cool throughout the duration of the smoke. Overall I liked this cigar, it wasn’t mind blowing, but they all can’t be right? Anyway this was a nice smooth smoke from first puff to the last. The cigar never got above a medium in strength and dare I say it was almost mild. There was some creaminess along with a surprisingly cherry sweetness and oak flavors. I would definitely smoke this again.

Blind Cigar Review: Ventura | Fathers, Friends & Fire – Father-Daughter

“Fantastic smoke. Not as full bodied as I typically prefer, but a really impressive medium bodied experience. Great core flavors of nuts and spice along with blasts of sweetness and floral qualities throughout. Not exactly massive transitions, but there were some nice points of interest along the way.
Really exceptional construction as well. The craftsmanship definitely added to the experience. ” -John I. (John I.)
