Blind Cigar Review: El Artista | Big Papi Slugger

“My first impressions were negative due to the size of the cigar. Eliminating my bias towards that was easy once I started smoking the cigar. It really was a pleasant and long experience. This is still not necessarily going to be a first choice smoke for me but I can say it was flavorful enough all the way through to work for a niche smoke at the right time for me. Well constructed and good looking, I’d revisit this cigar again.” -Diana (ArmyRN)

Blind Cigar Review: Pulita | 60 Aniversario Toro

“This cigar hit all of my sweet spots in terms of flavor. Peppery, leathery, with hints of scotch whiskey toward the end. I’d happily invest in a few more of these to see if I could get some with a more consistent draw. I bet this would be a tremendous smoke if that issue was ameliorated. ” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: Exactus | Puro Ambar Legacy Gran Robusto

“This cigar was a very enjoyable smoke on a Tuesday night. The aromas and flavor profile were quite enjoyable and pleasant to the palate. The lack of spice or pepper up front was unconventional due to the color and makeup of the cigar, however, it led to a surprising smoke and “on the edge of your seat” experience waiting for what was next to come. The cigar never truly changed complexity and stayed the same throughout, but again, the flavor profile was enjoyable so it did not hinder the overall outcome. I would suggest at least giving this cigar a chance and seeing if it fits your style. For me, I like a stronger maduro with a lot of pepper forward, but this is a nice change of pace to clean out the palate and enjoy some sweet, citrus flavors and aromas.” -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)

Blind Cigar Review: Exactus | Puro Ambar Short Coloso

“Overall, the cigar started off pretty good for me. After it lost most of the spice, which was early on, it seemed to stay the same during the last two thirds. It became pretty mild overall, but was a nice creamy smoke with some sweetness. It was just OK for me, nothing spectacular.” -Wes (SosaCub4Life)
