Blind Cigar Review: Curivari | Archimedes 550

“This was a great cigar to smoke. The profile of it was in line with what I like smoking these days. A soft and delicate smoke at time that morphs into something with a deep and rich character. I would recommend this cigar to anyone who like a lighter smoke that builds into some character. A nice find and I would surely smoke another. ” -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)

Blind Cigar Review: J.C. Newman | Cuesta-Rey Centro Fino Sungrown No. 60

“Overall this is a decent breakfast smoke with no true transitions. If you’re looking for something to kill some time and not really looking for something complex. This is a nice smoke to pair with coffee. I prefer something with a little more character, even for my breakfast smoke. All in all, this is close but no cigar… Get it? Lol. -_-” -Jonathan R. (J.Lee)

Blind Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua | Número Uno Le Premier

“This cigar is my gig. Nice mild-medium bodied profile flavors of oak, vanilla, cream, custard, sweet milk caramels and the slightest bit of pepper to give this cigar great character. With unmatched smoothness, this is a cigar I could enjoy time after time after time. If this cigar remains consistent across multiple samples, I would definitely recommend buying these buy the box as it was truly a fantastic smoking experience!” -John A. (Bostoneo)

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: J.C. Newman | The American No. 3

“The aroma of berries and chocolate were very inviting and promising. However, upon lighting, the chocolate turned to a coffee flavor with hints of berries. It was a pleasant cigar int he beginning. As I approach the second third, the berries slowly diminished and the coffee flavor took over. The one plus was the pepper flavors that left a nice tingle on the lips. As time went on, the coffee turned bitter like the bottom of a pot that had been sitting on the burner far too long. Eventually I was left with a bitter taste with only the peppery tingle keeping me going. Not sure if I would want this one again.” -Eric (smalls29)

Blind Cigar Review: Tatuaje | ME II Toro

“This cigar was really really good. From the initial aromas and cold draw, to the nice burn and finished product, there was not much to not enjoy. The subtle notes of cherry jam that came in during the middle really gave this a complex profile. These are very good well-made cigars and I can only hope I have the opportunity to smoke another one.” -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)

Blind Cigar Review: Punch | Knuckle Buster Toro

“Overall, it was an okay smoke, no frills for me at least. If you like earthy notes with some pepper and char, this will be right up your alley. Little gave in way of sweetness save the grassy notes in the beginning that quickly faded halfway through. Draw issues with it being too tightly rolled made smoking it at times a chore, however all in all, eh, try it… you might like it, you might not, you be the judge…” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: HVC | Serie A Perlas Score 91%

Blind Cigar Review: HVC | Serie A Perlas

“Overall, not a bad tasty cigar, definitely slightly above average if smoked correctly, slow and low. The loose draw made this one smoke rather quickly, 55 minutes to be exact, and forced the smoker to slow down and sip this sample. The creamy notes of almonds, leather, peanut shells, and wood complimented each other very nicely and provided a well-balanced experience. I believe this would only be amplified with a better constructed cigar and would be improved immensely. ” -John A. (Bostoneo)
