Blind Cigar Review: Cubariqueño | Protocol Themis Corona Gorda

“Overall, a tasty cigar when you want something similar to a nice glass of bourbon. Mild-medium in body, this blend exemplifies tasty notes of vanilla, oak, and bourbon like sweetness. Easy to smoke from top to bottom, this is an easy recommendation for a well balanced smoke that can be enjoyed anytime without any reservations for a relaxing experience.” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: Gurkha | Cellar Reserve 15 Year Toro

“Overall this was a decent flavor profile.. for nearly the whole stick. Even draws and bad burn knocked this stick down points even more as it caused an unpleasant smoking experience; at least it didn’t blow up. I’d have to sample another before making an ultimate decision on whether or not to put it in my naughty or nice list. ” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: Alec Bradley | Mundial PL #5

“This cigar would have rated much higher in this this category if it were not for the final third. The bitterness that crept in in the final third took it down a few notches along with the work it took to keep it going. The first two thirds shined as bright as the morning sun. The final third was more like a cloudy day with the threat of rain. ” -James H. (Keikan Jim)

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: 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)

Blind Cigar Review: Southern Draw | IGNITE 2019 Private Blend Habano #3

“This cigar was just what I needed. With the coronavirus going on the cigar shops are closed, except for carry out and some are doing deliveries….which is a 1st I believe. Anyway this was the 1st day that was nice enough for me to spark up in my man cave *garage* and even though there wasn’t many flavors on this cigar what I got was wood, some sweet tobacco and a bit of leather. The cigar still held up and didn’t let me down……stay safe everyone this is the end of the world……..if ya got em’ smoke em’.” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

Blind Cigar Review: Montecristo | Espada Oscuro Guard

“I was leery about the first third, hoping it may have some complexity of this blend, however i was delightfully surprised bu the last two thirds. A menagerie of roasted and tasty charred flavors intermingling with sweet caramel and chocolate flavors made this end up being two thumbs up for me! Paired with flawless appearance, construction and burn made it all the better. Top notch med-full bodied smoke!” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: Henry Clay | War Hawk Toro

“Connecticut wrappers are a mystery these days. So many blenders have taken a page from the My Father Connecticut and given smokers something to get excited about when they see a Connecticut. The days of mild and straight forward are gone, and we’re treated with cigars such as this one. Complex flavors and body that never let up during the whole session. I’d seek some of these out if I was you. You won’t regret it!” -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)

Blind Cigar Review: A.C.E. Prime | A Cuban Experience El Elegante

“I know this particular vitola is suppose to be more of a cigar snob size but I love them when they’re done well. This one is fantastic. The burn, smoke output, and journey of flavors set this apart from most lanceros that I have smoked. I can’t recommend these enough. Go out and buy some. ” -Alan (Eulogy)
