Crowned Heads - Juárez Shots XX 2020 Limited Edition
Smooth peppery and strong, an excellent smoke.
Padron - 2000 Natural
This cigar has lots of flavor, but throughout the smoke it can be a bit harsh compared to other similarly priced sticks. Overall this cigar is a good value
Acid - Blondie Candela
This stick smells excellent in a very odd way (almost like incense) the sweetened tip was good and the room note was excellent. However, the flavor of the smoke itself was quite weird, I could not put my finger on what it was, but I know it was not as enjoyable as it smelled.
Toscano - Toscanello Aroma Vaniglia
A delicious small desert cigar that has a heavy vanilla flavoring. This smoke pairs very well with a sweet drink (hot chocolate in my case). These cigars have all had a perfect draw and hold tightly onto a nice white ash. All in all this is an excellent small cigar.
Cornell & Diehl - Engine #382 2oz
This delectable blend tastes of fruity perique combined with an herby vanilla from the deertongue which also provides a nice room note. This blend hits every category for me, well bodied, sweet, full of flavor, mellow, and an excellent tin note. This was my first time trying a blend with deertongue and man was it worth it.
Sutliff - #600 Mixture 79
Smells delicious but is a very basic sweet burley blend.
Cornell & Diehl - Mad Fiddler Flake 2oz
This blend tastes like rich smokey apples that brings an excellent aroma to the palate. Another great blend from the Old Ones lineup.
Cornell & Diehl - Pirate Kake 2oz
Excellently smokey and rich latakia blend. If you are not a latakia lover than this blend is not for you, if you are this blend will float on cloud nine. A delicious rich smoke.
CAO - Eileen's Dream Tubo
Sweet and rich
Sutliff - Match 20
I am an English lover but I still don't know where I sit with this blend. I have not been blown away by this blend but I haven't been necessarily let down by it either.
Sutliff - Tobacco Galleria: Night Cap
Sweet and sour aro
The smell of this blend is something that I have never experienced before, and it isn't lost in the smoke. I find that this cavendish blend gives little tongue bite and carries its flavor for a long time.
Cornell & Diehl - Old Joe Krantz Blue Label
Mellow and savory
An excellent burley blend that makes my mouth water every time that I smell the bag. This is an excellent blend that is a must try.
Arturo Fuente - Hemingway Signature
I am not a cigar guy myself but this was my first non-budget cigar. I sat back listening to old music with this cigar and had quite a nice time.
Arturo Fuente - Brevas Royal Natural
Good for the money
A simple cigar with a simple price tag.
Romeo y Julieta - 1875 Mini White Original
Simple rich cigarillos
A great smoke that is short and simple with lots of cigar flavor.
Comoy's - Cask No.11
A great rich and smokey Balkan that I keep coming back to time after time. I find that this is a great all day blend that sits well in my bent apple.
Comoy's - Cask No.1
A great simple English, mild and smoky.
Cornell & Diehl - Bayou Morning
A classic va/per
A mellow and rich va/per that is a great morning smoke that invigorates the palate and perks up the mind. A great blend all around.
Cornell & Diehl - Bright Virginia Ribbon
A tasty Virginia
I smoke this by itself and it is an excellent straight virginia smoke that is basic in its elements but complex and tasty when placed into a pipe.
A & C Petersen - Escudo Navy Deluxe 50g
Sweet and sour va/per
A truly decadent blend cut into beautiful coins waiting to be rubbed out and stuffed into your pipe. This is a wonderfully sweet, grassy, and citrusy smoke that is timeless.
Cornell & Diehl - Awakened Elder 2oz
Sour and smokey
A great blend that is quite rich and tasty, this is a great addition to the Old Ones lineup.
Cornell & Diehl - Dreams of Kadath 2oz
The tin note on this blend is quite unique but one of my favorites nonetheless. I find this blend is sweet and mellow providing a perfectly pleasant smoking experience. This is another hit from the Old Ones lineup.
Cornell & Diehl - Haunted Bookshop
A ghostly burley
A bitter peppery blend that is more than pleasing to the palate. I find that the name of this blend helps me to daydream while I enjoy a bowl. This is a spectacular smoke.
Cornell & Diehl - Purple Cow 2oz
I don't typically smoke cigar leaf blends, but I wanted to try one out. I find this to be a nice and mellow flavorful experience. The bitterness of the burleys play quite well with the smokiness of the cigar leaf and peppery sweetness of the perique.
Cornell & Diehl - Visions of Celephaïs 2oz
Sweet and smokey
An interesting blend that brings heavy notes of grape with a nice and smokey backing. Another hit in the Old Ones lineup.
G. L. Pease - Meridian 2oz
Another excellent blend from G.L.Pease that keeps me coming back for more.
Hearth & Home - BlackHouse 1.75oz
An excellent Balkan
A rich, tasty, and smokey experience that pulls you back for more.
Hearth & Home - Cerberus 1.75oz
Tasty and smokey
A rich and smokey English blend that provides an excellent and balanced smoke.
Sutliff - Pumpkin Spice
A delicious aromatic that brings about the aromas of pumpkin spice. Though damp this blend does not cause much tongue bite. Smelling this tin makes you wish for fall to come quicker.
Sutliff - Z92 Vanilla Custard
A wet vanilla
This blend is flavorful with a sweet vanilla aroma. It is quite moist but does not cause a huge amount of tongue bite. The scent of the tin is to die for.
Toscano - Antica Riserva
This was my first cigar, but I could not handle the intensity of the spicy smoky flavor. I typically smoke pipe tobacco and this was a shocking change of pace. I will try more Toscano cigars in the future to see if I can get more out of one of their other sticks.
Cornell & Diehl - Autumn Evening 2oz
A maple Virginia
I keep a tin of this blend on my desk just to shove my nose into and smell. This blend is quite tasty but I found its best flavors to only be available on the retro-hale. I decided to roll this tobacco into a cigarette and found my favorite use for this blend. I only smoke one cigarette a month, and this is my tobacco of choice.
Cult - Blood Red Moon 50g
Rich sweet cherries
A lovely cherry blend that sits well in a Missouri Meerschaum and carries little to no tongue bite. An excellent aromatic to behold.
G. L. Pease - Gaslight 2oz
Easy to get lost in
This plug is an extraordinary example of how latakia can be used to make a perfect smoke. Far different than any other blend that I have tried this blend seemingly transports you to another time. Relaxing on a calm night with this blend is to die for. Each slice of this plug is a slice of heaven.
G. L. Pease - Quiet Nights 2oz
Perfect for a quiet night
This was one of the first blends that I was blessed enough to try. After struggling to find flavor in other lesser tobaccos I lit up a bowl of Quiet Nights and fell in love. The smoke is velvety and delicious reminiscent of a campfire with a flavor of a rich incense that lingers and brings you back for more. If you enjoy a quality latakia and oriental blend then this is for you.
Lane Limited - 1-Q
Tasty but basic
I am not a major fan of aromatics, but I do not despise them either. 1-Q is a very light and smoky vanilla delight that does not bite at the tongue like other cavendish blends. Though not my particular cup of coffee I would never refuse a bowl of 1-Q
