Blind Cigar Review: Battleground | General Longstreet Score 93%

Blind Cigar Review: Battleground | General Longstreet

“Just like you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover, you shouldn’t judge this cigar by it’s wrapper. Looking at this cigar and one might say words like ugly, rough looking, and poorly made but that is far from true. The burn, the favors, and performance of this cigar punch above it’s weight class. The extra tobacco in the center of this cigar caused it to lose the intensity and body that I loved in the first third. While the weird mishmash of flavors, in the final third, had me conflicted but in the end the cigar made me go and grab my nub tool and smoke it till I was burning my lips. This is a cigar that I would reach for again and again. If it had an option for a smaller ring gauge size and it would be a box buy. Well done!” -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)

Blind Cigar Review: Drew Estate | Undercrown Shade Suprema

“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: JRE | Aladino Connecticut Queens

“I bumped this one a little higher than most mainly because the overall of the cigar was phenomenal. The build was sharp, looked pleasant, and had a high end feel to it. The aromas and flavor profile that came through will please every single style of cigar smoker. Lastly, the smoothness of the draw and simpleness of the cigar experience from light and go, this cigar was top notch and should be enjoyed by as many people as possible. ” -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)

Quick Cigar Review: Diamond Crown | Julius Caeser 1895 Perfecto

This cigar while the first two thirds had a similar profile this for sure wasn’t a bad thing.   Enjoyed this cigar from beginning to end and always happy for that next puff.    I have smoked plenty of the Julius Caesar in other sizes and have to say this perfecto was a treat.   If you have a Diamond Crown lounge near you pick one up!

Blind Cigar Review: Jenneff Cigars | Family Blend Perfecto

Blind Cigar Review: Padilla | Single Batch Perfecto

“It was full enough to keep me puffing, but mild enough for an adventurous noob to stretch their horizons. I’ve seen one other cigar that looked like this, so maybe I can guess what it is, but I can assure you that I’ll have more of these when the reveal happens!” –Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)

Blind Cigar Review: Stogie Boys | RIOT 55

“While this cigar didn’t have the best construction, burn or draw, I did enjoy the flavors this cigar produced. However, most of this cigar was still one dimensional and it didn’t give me a lot in the way of complexity. This is probably a cigar worth smoking again, but much would depend on the price point.” -Will (Cigar-Coop)
