Blind Cigar Review: Indian Motorcycle | Connecticut Shade Robusto

“Before lighting up a stogie I always say “please PLEASE don’t give me a boring cigar!” and this sucker is far from boring. It constantly keeps you on your toes with flavors coming and going and then coming around the bend again. I will be buying a box of whatever these are, it’s a damn impressive cigar. ” -Matt Cade (CADE)

Blind Cigar Review: PDR | El Trovador Maduro Robusto

“While I typically do not prefer cigars that are “one dimensional”, I do appreciate ones that have minimal transitions, with outstanding representations of the flavors that are there. This is one of those cigars. My only complaint is this was a relatively fast burner. It was one that I wished I had a toro version of, cause I wasn’t ready to be done when the nub got to hot to hold! ” -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)

Blind Cigar Review: Ventura | Archetype Chapter 3 Sacred Scales Robusto

“A cigar I hated to lose in the process of smoking. Great notes of cherry, earth, leather, cocoa, and oak make this a excellent cigar. Great ash that hung on to the cigar for 30 minutes or better. Five or more of these cigar would round out your humidor perfectly.” -Sean F. (fullermaine)

Blind Cigar Review: Gran Habano | Cabinet Selection Robusto

“First and foremost, this is a cigar that must be retrohaled to be appreciated. The smoke on the palate is fine but the vanilla essence in the sinuses for the final two third made me want more. I could see this as the perfect way to kill an hour with friends at a BBQ or in conversation. It won’t pull all of your attention away from the people and times you’re enjoy. Hell it might even enhance them. ” -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)

Blind Cigar Review: Caldwell | Eastern Standard Corretto

“While there was a little bit of concern from the mid-point on, all in all this cigar offered a very pleasant smoking experience. The transitions from start to finish were well defined and each complimented the next. It is firmly in the medium full range in strength and body, and would be most enjoyed by smokers with a little experience under their belt to truly appreciate what the cigar has to offer. This is definitely a cigar I would like to smoke again. ” -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)

Blind Cigar Review: Kristoff | Shade Grown Robusto

“A lot of flavors in this stick. Sweet to spicy notes are well balanced. A beautiful grayish-black ash gives way to a tri-colored ash. I would include this stick in my humidor. A nice relaxing smoke that pairs well with a dark coffee and a rain storm. Pick up a few when you have the opportunity.” -Sean F. (fullermaine)

Blind Cigar Review: La Aurora | Barrel Aged by Karl Malone Robusto

“Pretty solid medium bodied cigar. Not fully my cup of tea, but there were aspects of it that I certainly enjoyed. The transitions from the early portion to the mid portion as well as the mid range to the finale were also really elegant. The final portion was really the best part for my taste, and it wasn’t really a chore to get there.” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: Macanudo | Heritage Nuevo Robusto

“Wow! This was a fantastic cigar! The cigar really didn’t show its true colors until the second third, but that’s fine. In the second third I got that wonderful creamy/buttery flavors. Then in the final third every other sip the cigar really surprised me with earthy tones (no spice) of wood then followed up with cream and butter. This is definitely a box purchase in my future. Would love to pair this with morning coffee as my first cigar of the day….. I’d go even further and say it could be my last cigar of the day too.” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

Blind Cigar Review: Ventura | Manolo Quesada for Cuban Cigar Factory Robusto

“Oh my how I loved this cigar. While it did not offer up any transitions along its length, from the very start it did offer so many varying flavors that a change of profile would have ruined the experience. The aroma was also quite nice when the smoke hit the nostrils. I’m looking forward to smoking a lot more of these in the future.” -Isaac M. (The Nothing)

Blind Cigar Review: Partagas | Limited Reserve Decadas 2019

“A decent looking stick, with great pre-light aromas, and lackluster construction and burn. The flavor profile was okay, middle of the road for me, I feel the lightly packed/rolled tobacco caused this stick to burn too quickly, causing off flavors from the high burn temp. I’d smoke it again, but it wouldn’t be my first choice as the flavor profile was pretty straight forward and didn’t have a level of complexity that I am typically accustomed with true premium cigars. While not the bottom of the barrel in the premium world, a noteworthy smoke that you should try!” -John A. (Bostoneo)
