Blind Cigar Review: Quesada | Reserva Privada Oscuro Robusto

“This is a cigar I would happily smoke again while I was doing something different to occupy my time such as shooting skeet or at the golf driving range. The profile peaked in the second third but then fell off with the mineral flavors in the final third. I put the cigar down with a little less than 2 inches as I felt the profile wasn’t going to change. Smoke output was plentiful and stormed off the foot. I feel this cigar might improve with age and is worthy of a redux.” -Matt C. (Big Matt)

Editorial: Rocky Mountain Cigar Festival – 2015

The Rocky Mountain Cigar festival is always a great event with good people, and awesome vendors. It has been growing steadily since it’s inception in 2011. Unfortunately I was deathly ill last year and wasn’t able to attend and see the new venue. This year I was feeling great and ready to smoke, and it didn’t disappoint. Joined by our panelist Jack, we conquered almost the entire festival.

Blind Cigar Review: Quesada | Reserva Privada Toro

“This is a solid cigar that increases in complexity throughout the smoke. The cigar is well balanced and there is a great balance of flavor and strength. Construction is excellent and the cigar itself smokes really well and allows you to smoke at a slower pace to enjoy subtle flavor changes. The first third started off a bit one dimensional; however, the final two thirds had some wonderful flavors and textures. The cigar truly shined in the second and final thirds where honey and caramel notes balance well with tobacco, cedar and oak flavors. I would happily smoke this cigar again and I would love to have it in a corona.” -Dave (Cigar Jukebox)

Quick Cigar Review: Quesada | 40th Anniversary Robusto

I enjoyed this cigar a lot. The final third did get a little harsh, but the first two were really unique and flavorful. The flavors all worked together really well and it was balanced really well the first two thirds. The burn and draw were not great, but adequate. I think some time in the humidor could do this cigar wonders. I would look for these again in a year or so, and I would definitely pick up more to age.
