Blind Cigar Review: Diesel | Whiskey Row Robusto Score 89%

Blind Cigar Review: Diesel | Whiskey Row Robusto

“The flavors never changed from beginning to end but it was a pretty unique experience in terms of flavor. There’s only a few cigars that remind me of that sort of fermented grain flavor of beer and that’s what I tasted from start to finish. The smoke output and construction were spot on and it’s hard to find fault with anything. If you the taste of beer this might be something to try.” -Alan (Eulogy)

Blind Cigar Review: La Gloria Cubana | Spanish Press Robusto

“Magnificent cigar. I’m not a boxed press enthusiast, but I really enjoyed this one despite the format. The flavors nailed a lot of my personal preferences featuring loads of creaminess, leather; ranging from soft and supple to bold and aggressive, and throughout offered a balanced sweetness. Additional notes of mineral and salt played against the sweet creaminess nicely. ” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: J.C. Newman | Diamond Crown Maximus No. 4 Toro

“Overall, this was an okay stick, however not something I myself would seek out. While it was fairly consistent in flavor, it did switch up things to a slight sweeter note on the second half. This would pair wonderfully with a port wine, porter & stout beer with its robust flavors and sweetness options they provide. Burn, construction and draw were spot on for this sample and couldn’t of asked for much better. If you like dark, char, and a bit of chocolate covered cherry sweetness, check out this blend for your enjoyment!” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: Camaleón | Huevo de Oro Robusto

“I think the burn issue at the start really dampened this cigar for me. As much as I tried to look past it, and by the time it settled down the flavors of this cigar were tainted from having to re light and burn the section to get it going. ” -Jake P. (Jake P.)

Blind Cigar Review: Hiram & Solomon | Fellow Craft Toro

“This cigar had some fantastic flavor to start off. From the looks of this dark wrapper I was expecting some good dark earthy flavors. That is exactly what I was getting. Molasses, spice and wood notes mixed in made this very enjoyable. With that being said, right around the half way point it took a turn in the less enjoyably direction. The cigar was burning hot turning most of the flavor to char. Had to take more time in between puffs to lessen that. Although it eventually subsided the damage I think was done and just mushed all the flavors together to get a mostly musty earth. Not how I would have liked it to end.” -Jake P. (Jake P.)
