Blind Cigar Review: Southern Draw | Cedrus Toro Score 92%

Blind Cigar Review: Southern Draw | Cedrus Toro

I liked this cigar quite a bit. While I was initially worried about that strong mesquite woodsiness overpowering any other flavors that might come my way, the cigar managed – and managed well – to balance that with some other flavor notes that made this smoking experience one that I wouldn’t mind at all revisiting.” -Matt Cade (CADE)

Blind Cigar Review: Tatuaje | TAA 2020

“I was sold from from first puff. Love a good closed foot that gives a quick reveal of the wrapper flavor at first light. This cigar has nice and subtle transitions. It does change, but not much. Thoroughly enjoyable smoke. Maintained a solid finish throughout that left me enjoying the flavors until the next draw.  I’d pick this cigar up again.” -Randy B.

Blind Cigar Review: Micallef | Grande Bold Ligero 554L

“Though this cigar was very one dimensional, in my opinion, it was well worth the investment of time. It would pair perfectly with an amaretto heavy cocktail or some fresh almond pastry. If you are a fan of medium body cigars with wonderful construction then this would be the cigar for you. Grab one and give it a shot.” -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)

Blind Cigar Review: Oscar Valladares | Altar Q

“Rarely is ever do I have a cigar experience that is as epic as this was. The flavors and aromas were beyond extraordinary and they worked so well together . Citrus, salted nuts, slight sweetness, and a retro so smooth it should be criminal. I’d easily give this a 98. Multi box worthy. Trust me, you’re gonna enjoy this if you enjoy what time and great tobacco can do together. ” -Kevin J. (maninblack77)

Blind Cigar Review: Hiram & Solomon | Shriner Toro

“Though this cigar lacked body, in my opinion, I can not overstate how good this cigar was. I could see some people calling it one dimensional but in all honesty this cigar was a flavor bomb. Forgoing strength and body for the benefit of making a more flavorful blend. This cigar is perfect for anyone looking to expand their palate away from the light body, airy, cigars of the world. Pick one up and decided for yourself.” -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)

“This cigar had an outstanding start, with excellent flavors and transition. It really had a lot going for it. Unfortunately the burn problems more than halfway in took away from the joy this cigar had been. ” -Isaac M. (The Nothing)

Quick Cigar Review: Oscar Valladares | Altar Q Sumatra

This was a really nice cigar, and I’m surprised by how well it preformed given that it was on the IPCPR show floor last week, and already in stores. Yes, I purchased this one. The flavors were mostly honey with a nuttiness and a bit of coffee and some spice. As I mentioned before the burn was top notch, and not one touch up was needed. I really enjoyed this cigar, and I think it would make a nice 1st stick of the day, but bear in mind this is a toro, so there is some time commitment, as this cigar last me right around 95 mins.
