Blind Cigar Review: Dunbarton T&T | Sobremesa Elegante en Cedro Score 92%

Blind Cigar Review: Dunbarton T&T | Sobremesa Elegante en Cedro

“All around a great cigar. The flavor profile could have had a bit more of an evolution, but the core flavors were quite enjoyable though out and the retrohale provided a nice change from the standard draw. The creaminess of the smoke could have been a little more consistent as parts of the cigar produced thick creamy clouds but a lot of the time it was a little but thin. Overall a very good cigar that I would definitely smoke again. ” -Alan (Eulogy)

Quick Cigar Review: Dunbarton T&T | Muestra de Saka Unicorn

While the Diademas size was amazing I always find them a struggle with construction, burn, etc. This cigar from a construction point of view was on point. The burn was great, and the cigar smoked perfectly. Would I spend $100 on this cigar if it was regular production? Of course not. Definitely a treat to smoke and I was happy to get the chance. I give this a score of 93.

Blind Cigar Review: Fonseca | Nicaragua Petite Corona Score 88%

Blind Cigar Review: Fonseca | Nicaragua Petite Corona

“There was a promising start with a nice mocha latte flavor. The flavors were balanced and not overpowering. However, as it moved into the second third the flavors mellowed and were hard to taste unless you took a long inhale and hold it. As the final third came, the flavors went south and became bitter. Not a great ending to a great start. If they could fix the final third and at least the flavors are still there it would be a great cigar.” -Eric (smalls29)

Blind Cigar Review: Emilio | Cavatina Toro

” The Cigar was so delicious out the gate. However, the lack of complexity and linear flavor profile of the Cigar could easily bore most people. I thoroughly enjoyed the flavors the tobacco provided as it was very delicious and the construction, burn and especially the draw was a top notch. A good cigar if you don’t want to be thrilled but enjoy a nice moderately peppery sweet smoke. ” -John A. (John A.)
