Blind Cigar Review: MLB Cigar Ventures | Imperia Robusto

“This was a great cigar to smoke. It didn’t have all the bells and whistles that others may have when looking at it, but boy did it do everything right. From the near perfect construction to the intriguing flavors that slowly build, this cigar felt like a well thought out project. I will be stocking up on a few of these for a later time.” -Kent (Throck)

Blind Cigar Review: Quesada | Reserva Privada Toro

“This is a solid cigar that increases in complexity throughout the smoke. The cigar is well balanced and there is a great balance of flavor and strength. Construction is excellent and the cigar itself smokes really well and allows you to smoke at a slower pace to enjoy subtle flavor changes. The first third started off a bit one dimensional; however, the final two thirds had some wonderful flavors and textures. The cigar truly shined in the second and final thirds where honey and caramel notes balance well with tobacco, cedar and oak flavors. I would happily smoke this cigar again and I would love to have it in a corona.” -Dave (Cigar Jukebox)

Quick Cigar Review: Quesada | 40th Anniversary Robusto

I enjoyed this cigar a lot. The final third did get a little harsh, but the first two were really unique and flavorful. The flavors all worked together really well and it was balanced really well the first two thirds. The burn and draw were not great, but adequate. I think some time in the humidor could do this cigar wonders. I would look for these again in a year or so, and I would definitely pick up more to age.
