Blind Cigar Review: Villiger | La Vencedora Churchill Score 90%

Blind Cigar Review: Villiger | La Vencedora Churchill

“Just in terms of flavor this was actually a very good cigar. The smoke output was creamy, the draw was nice if I held it just right, and it burned well even with an almost destroyed wrapper. The size was very large though and with the lack of profile changes did make it a bit one dimensional.” -Alan (Eulogy)

Blind Cigar Review: Hiram & Solomon | Fellow Craft Toro

“This cigar had some fantastic flavor to start off. From the looks of this dark wrapper I was expecting some good dark earthy flavors. That is exactly what I was getting. Molasses, spice and wood notes mixed in made this very enjoyable. With that being said, right around the half way point it took a turn in the less enjoyably direction. The cigar was burning hot turning most of the flavor to char. Had to take more time in between puffs to lessen that. Although it eventually subsided the damage I think was done and just mushed all the flavors together to get a mostly musty earth. Not how I would have liked it to end.” -Jake P. (Jake P.)

Blind Cigar Review: Montecristo | Espada Oscuro Guard

“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)

Blind Cigar Review: Balmoral | Añejo XO Oscuro Rothschild Masivo

“I really enjoyed this compact cigar. It had a great construction and build and felt really smooth. The profile was complex and had a nice balance of cedar, hay, and pepper. Not too spicy or bold, just a real smooth rich profile. My only negative is that this cigar didn’t last longer. ” -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)

Blind Cigar Review: Ohana | Friends & Family Corona Gorda

“This was a wonderful experience. The flavors were nice and constant and never strayed in to bitterness and yuck. The cedar flavor was there from begging to end. The best part was the slightly sweet taste left on the palate. The aroma was that of a cedar log burning in the fireplace that made this one even more enjoyable. Definitely one for the humidor. ” -Eric (smalls29)

Blind Cigar Review: Warped | La Colmena Black Honey

“Very solid cigar across the board. It won’t change your life or make you feel as if you’d been touched by the hand of God, but it is a well constructed and tasty smoke. It doesn’t require much effort to tease out and identify exotic flavors, or significant transitions, but what is there is very up front, and enjoyable. ” -John I. (John I.)

“As ugly as this cigar was, it goes to show that you can’t judge a book by the cover. The flavors were so good. There was complexity, and yet consistent notes that pulled everything together. I would gladly reach for this cigar again. ” -Matthew T. (A Huge Nerd)
