Blind Cigar Review: Emilio | La Musa Melete Lancero

“As long a smoke as this cigar was, I nubbed it and wished that it wouldn’t stop. You just can’t beat a cigar with a great flavor profile and a great burn. If I had another one in the humidor, I would have went and gotten it to smoke it immediately. Someone send me another one or box! Seriously, I will be looking to pick some up on the reveal.” -Jason (bigslowrock)

Quick Cigar Review: Bandolero Tremendos

This is a cigar that got better as it went along. Plenty of transitions to keep things interesting and one that just begs you to keep retrohaling to experience all of the flavors that it offers. The fuller strength is something that may be better suited for the end of the day or after a meal. The price point fits the experience, so I wouldn’t hesitate on pulling the trigger on getting some of these if they are available to you.

Blind Cigar Review: Guayacan | Habano Robusto

“This ranks up there with one of the better blind cigars I’ve smoked. The coffee, leather and baking spices were perfectly balanced and changed up enough to keep it interesting. The added spice from time to time was appreciated as was the toast and char that showed up near the end. I would definitely grab more of these to enjoy.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)

Editorial: Thoughts on IPCPR 2014

I thought I would take an opportunity to put down some of my thoughts and observations from the IPCRPR 2014 show that was held in Las Vegas this past week. Just to be clear, these are my thoughts and opinions and do not necessarily reflect those of Blind Man’s Puff or any other member of the team here.

Blind Cigar Review: Bodega | Reunión Aperitivo Corona Gorda

“I enjoyed this stogie. The flavors are some of my favorites, and combined with the perfect draw, it was a joy to smoke. I am looking forward to hearing what it is so I can score some more.” -Robert (NavyPiper)

Blind Cigar Review: Crux | Skeeterz

“While this cigar might be delicate to look at, it was a powerhouse in the flavor department. The first third bounced around with some bolder flavors while the second third set this cigar up for a grand finale. The final portion of this cigar made me wish I grabbed it on a cool morning with a cup of coffee and the day in front of me. What a wonderful smoke.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)

Blind Cigar Review: Los Regalos | Quetzal Toro

“What a pleasurable milder smoke with lots of subtle changes within it’s original profile. The balance of spice and sweetness was close to perfect, never becoming harsh or bitter. Often the initial pepper blast takes over, but this cigar seemed to keep all flavors balanced and working well together. I would grab a box in a heartbeat.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)

Blind Cigar Review: Ezra Zion | FHK Truth

“This cigar was truly great. I smoke a lot of good cigars for this site, but this one stands out above the rest. This is one of the best I have smoked for the site, and it deserves one of the highest ranking we have given. I hope the other reviewers shared my experience. I will be buying a box of whatever this is, assuming I can. The cigar takes you through a journey around the flavor wheel, never getting dull, never getting bitter, never disappointing you. This was a pleasure to smoke, and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending a box.” -Emmett (rhetorik)

Blind Cigar Review: Blanco | Nine Robusto

“There were some really nice flavors here, but I felt the whole time like the construction was holding this cigar back. The problems with the burn and the constant feeling of having to smoke faster than I wanted really hurt its score. I would for sure try it again, maybe in a different vitola. I would recommend picking up a fiver based on the flavors, but be wary of the construction problems.” -Emmett (rhetorik)

Blind Cigar Review: Rodrigo | Boutique Blend G4

“The cigar with its ever changing flavor profile provided a complexity that I have not seen in a while other than in Ta’ts and LP’s. I would recommend this and plan on getting a few for my humidor to age.” -Sandeep (Djangos)

Blind Cigar Review: Oliva | Saison Toro

“This cigar was a flavor bomb throughout. It kept me puffing almost to the point where it began burning hotter than normal. It’s not the absolute best I’ve had, but it’s one that’s definitely in my wheelhouse. I’d more than happy to enjoy another one (or three) of these!” -Milton (mjohnsoniii)
