Blind Cigar Review: Oscar Valladares | Altar Q

“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 . Citrus, salted nuts, slight sweetness, and a retro so smooth it should be criminal. I’d easily give this a 98. Multi box worthy. Trust me, you’re gonna enjoy this if you enjoy what time and great tobacco can do together. ” -Kevin J. (maninblack77)

Blind Cigar Review: Oscar Valladares | Super Fly Toro

“Man…I really enjoyed the flavors of this cigar! I really love coffee and this was coffee for the duration. A funny story on this one is that due to high elevation my jet lighter wouldn’t light. I ended up starting a small campfire by hand with friction and sticks and lit the cigar that way…a first for me, and now I know I’m a survivor…” -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)

Quick Cigar Review: Oscar Valladares | Altar Q Sumatra

This was a really nice cigar, and I’m surprised by how well it preformed given that it was on the IPCPR show floor last week, and already in stores. Yes, I purchased this one. The flavors were mostly honey with a nuttiness and a bit of coffee and some spice. As I mentioned before the burn was top notch, and not one touch up was needed. I really enjoyed this cigar, and I think it would make a nice 1st stick of the day, but bear in mind this is a toro, so there is some time commitment, as this cigar last me right around 95 mins.

Blind Cigar Review: The Oscar | Habano Toro

“This was an excellent cigar, and one I may request before facing execution by a firing squad. Flavors, complexity, and construction are all on point. I believe this is a cigar that will stand up to multiple cigars a day as the flavors are bold and evident. I’ll be seeking these out if they are readily available in this exact vitola, no additional aging time is needed. Smoke this cigar after a salty fatty steak and thank me later.” -Matt C. (Big Matt)

Blind Cigar Review: Bill Bromley | Butter Toro

“This was a great cigar, one of the best I’ve reviewed in a while. I’m genuinely excited to find out what it was so I can buy some. The construction, burn, draw were perfect. The flavors were classic but really defined and offered enough transition to keep me interested. Not too strong, not too weak, I would recommend this to anyone. Great cigar.” -Emmett (rhetorik)

Blind Cigar Review: Puros de Ballard | The Leaf by Oscar Connecticut Toro

“Lovers of milder to medium cigars are going to love this one. Even though not very complex in the first and middle thirds, it picks up and compensates in the final third. I usually enjoy a little more pepper and more spice so I was a little disappointed in that. More sweeter flavors would have been welcome, but then again this was not a maduro. Overall, a good cigar that I will definitely want to visit again.” -Sandeep (Djangos)
