Blind Cigar Review: Perdomo | Firecracker

“This was a flavor bomb! Rich and bold from the time the fire touches it and grows fuller throughout the smoking experience. If this is what I think it is, this is exactly what it is blended to do. It was very slow burning for the size, which is quite amazing. I would say rush out and get as many as you can, especially if you are a fan of a slow burning flavor bomb, but if they are what I think they are that might be a little tough. Good luck and enjoy.” -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)

Blind Cigar Review: Gurkha | Marquesa Toro

“If the burn hadn’t been so impossible to deal with, this would have been quite a decent cigar. The blend had some pleasant flavors, and the smoke output was on point. Unfortunately, the burn just knocked it down several notches for me. I’m hopeful that this was just a fluke, and the other sticks burn perfectly, but mine just did not.” -Nate H. (SineQuaNon)

Blind Cigar Review: Curivari | Archimedes 550

“This was a great cigar to smoke. The profile of it was in line with what I like smoking these days. A soft and delicate smoke at time that morphs into something with a deep and rich character. I would recommend this cigar to anyone who like a lighter smoke that builds into some character. A nice find and I would surely smoke another. ” -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)

Blind Cigar Review: J.C. Newman | Cuesta-Rey Centro Fino Sungrown No. 60

“Overall this is a decent breakfast smoke with no true transitions. If you’re looking for something to kill some time and not really looking for something complex. This is a nice smoke to pair with coffee. I prefer something with a little more character, even for my breakfast smoke. All in all, this is close but no cigar… Get it? Lol. -_-” -Jonathan R. (J.Lee)

Blind Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua | Número Uno Le Premier

"This cigar is my gig. Nice mild-medium bodied profile flavors of oak, vanilla, cream, custard, sweet milk caramels and the slightest bit of pepper to give this cigar great character. With unmatched smoothness, this is a cigar I could enjoy time after time after time. If this cigar remains consistent across multiple samples, I would definitely recommend buying these buy the box as it was truly a fantastic smoking experience!" -John A. (Bostoneo)
