Blind Cigar Review: Moya Ruiz | Il Ridotto Biribi

“This was an interesting cigar with many flavor shifts. I wish the final third would have stayed cool enough to finish because I feel that this has a chance to be something special. I’ll definitely revisit this again once the reveal is complete.” -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)

Blind Cigar Review: CAO | Amazon Anaconda

“Long story short, it was OK. Short story not so short, the first two thirds were tasty, and seemed to be cohesive. The final third just failed in my estimation. The flavors were unpleasant and harsh. If this cigar could have continued the same flavor profile, I would have rated it much higher. ” -Matthew T. (A Huge Nerd)

Blind Cigar Review: Hoyo | La Amistad Silver Robusto

“I was a little concerned on the cold draw before lighting, but this cigar was really pretty good. Good flavor combinations, and lots of smoke output. It did burn a bit on the fast side, but the flavors that came throughout the smoking experience were tasty and made sense together. I would smoke this again.” -Matthew T. (A Huge Nerd)

Blind Cigar Review: Curivari | Buenaventura Cremas C200

“This is a great example of what a mild cigar can provide. I enjoyed the transitions of flavors throughout the duration of the smoke, the perfect burn, excellent construction, and one of the better draws of cigars I have smoked. My only qualm is that it burned way too quickly… I guess I’ll have to get some more to enjoy!” -John A. (John A.)

Blind Cigar Review: Dunbarton Tobaco & Trust | Umbagog Robusto Plus

“This was a cigar that fired on all cylinders for me. Once I paired it with a very rich stout, it really came into its own and was a superb cap to my evening. I have absolutely nothing to criticize with this sample. It would be my honor to personally thank the blender and roller of this super premium cigar. This will find a home in my rotation if I can find more!” -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
