Blind Cigar Review: Drew Estate | Undercrown Shade Corona Pequeña

“This was an excellent cigar for the size and time commitment. Sometimes you just need a cigar for 40-50 minutes but still want a kick in the teeth. I definitely got that here. I’d be interesting in picking more of these up to add to my rotation.” -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)

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: Crowned Heads | Luminosa Petite Corona

“Have you ever lit up a cigar with no preconceived notions, and after the fist puff you say to yourself, or out loud “Damn, this is nice?” well I did and that same thought stayed with me the entire smoke. Just a great amount of cream/honey and sweetness. This would be an excellent first cigar of the day with or without coffee. My only complaint was it was so short, but maybe that was the maker’s intention, to keep you coming back for more. I personally would like to keep these in my humi, for when I need that perfect smoking experience. ” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

Blind Cigar Review: Warped | El Oso Cub

“Excellent cigar. Although not in my typical flavor wheelhouse, I appreciate a rich and powerful cigar. This will be great to smoke a couple of after a grilled fatty steak (like a bone in ribeye). This will probably also hold very well to whiskey, cutting some of the chili bite. I’d seek out a fiver.” -Jiunn (jliu)

Blind Cigar Review: Epicurean | Carnavale Petite Corona

“I loved this cigar, one of the better ones I have reviewed in recent history. Everything from the flavors, transitions and the construction were great. I really liked this corona vitola, and I’m curious what other sizes it is offered in as I wouldn’t mind one that lasts longer. I would recommend this to anyone assuming the price is right.” -Emmett (rhetorik)

Blind Cigar Review: Emilio | Mia Dora Coronita

“This could easily become my go to morning smoke with a cup of coffee. The mild beginning transitioned to some bolder flavors nicely. Each third developed a distinct profile and stayed true. The leather really balanced the char and pepper, with the dark roast coffee at the end being a pleasant surprise.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)
