Rocky Patel Edge Sumatra Toro4 Star Rating05Venturer8/31/2015 2:40 PM
Probably one of the better Rocky's I have smoked.
Nice spices and woody flavors throughout the cigar. Got some hints of earth also throughout the cigar. I am normally not a huge RP fan but this one definitely changed that a bit. I smoked this while out doing some yard work so didn't concentrate alot on it but will be looking to pick up a few more to smoke as this one was great. Burn and smoke output were awesome. Looking forward to a few more to try.

OOps I see I accidentally put this in as a toro when I actually smoked the Torpedo. I am unsure how to move this to the torpedo vitola.
Macanudo Gold Label Ascot4.5 Star RatingSTL_Cohiba8/31/2015 2:10 PM
Smooth with a nice bite to it. I have been smoking these for almost 20 yrs and they will always be a favorite of mine. Looking for something to smoke in a pinch this is your stick.
Cohiba Extra Vigorosa XV 5504.5 Star RatingJay'D8/31/2015 7:48 AM
Really good cigar, nice feel and construction to the stick. Draw was good and produced a great smoke output and the burn was clean and even. Flavor was good and the retrohale was nice. Looking forward to smoking more of these when i can.

Real goos cigar, nice draw and good even burn. Oily feel to the wrapper with a good constrcution. Flavors were good throughout and got a lil punch at the end.
Graycliff 1666 PGX1 Star Ratingjunglepete8/31/2015 7:00 AM
Ouch. I put these to rest a few years ago with the hopes that some mellowing and aging would improve the flavor. Seems I should have just put them to death instead. Very tight draw, which made for a poor burn, which added to the poor taste of sour grass minus the gr. There was some strength to it, but that was all there was. Being that I only smoked one quarter of the cigar, because that was all I could take, I decided to dissect this specimen for scientific purposes. A decent wrapper leaf I guess. The binder leaf was doing its job too, but the filler leaf had all sorts of large veins, stick like ones. The very most center leaves were small pieces of leaves tightly bunched together. I thought it was supposed to be long leaf filler all the way, but not on this one.

Blind Stick review

Paired with water and smoked after a solid softball win.

very creamy burning stick. thick smoke with great mouth feel. Light back throat spice with a very enjoyable nutty finish. The smell of the the sweet tobacco burning was intoxicating. The aroma was complimented by many non smokers while I was enjoying this stick. It didn't stray much from the notes of sweet tobacco and nutty finish which was perfectly fine. Burn was razor sharp and ash held past 1/2 way. Medium stick and very approachable for new smokers and even ones that would like a fine stick for the morning. I would have wanted to pair this with a nice coffee. Safe 5er buy for sure. 4 out of 5.
Perdomo Nick's Sticks Little Havana Blend Toro Maduro3 Star Ratingtucktuck9118/30/2015 5:01 PM
slightly grainy wrapper, stiff draw
1/3 leather earth wood, mild spice
2/3 oak natural tobacco, grass
3/3 sweet, coffee, pepper, bread
smoke time: 60 min
humidor time 14 days (could have probably stayed in there longer)
Curivari Reserva Limitada Cafe Cafe 524.5 Star RatingKid Montana8/30/2015 4:56 PM
Exceptionally nice wrapper, dark dark maduro almost oscuro, matte finish, very little shininess.  The weight and construction are impeccable, with the nicest triple cap I've seen in a long time.  Pre-light draw is perfect, initial puffs were strong cocoa/coffee.   The burn through the first third was straight, loose ash, with a medium-full profile of espresso, spices, overall good complexity.  Maduro sweetness comes through on the retrohale, with a bit of clove or maybe anise.  Its great!  The spices intensify in the middle third, while the burn went lopsided requiring a touchup.   In the last third the complexity subsided a bit, trading complexity for smoothness.  I enjoyed this one so much I nubbed it down to less than an inch and will be picking up more.  
Arturo Fuente Chateau Fuente King B3.5 Star RatingJay'D8/30/2015 2:50 PM
The wrapper was a bit toothy and had a somewhat dry feel to it. The draw was tight which produced a small amount of smoke output most the time. The burn required a few touch ups through out the smoke. The flavors were good, would have given it a higher rating if it wasn't for the draw which prevented me from really enjoying this one. Would try another one and hopefully get one with a better draw as I really enjoyed the flavor profile.
Hoyo de Monterrey (Core Line) Governor3.5 Star RatingSack8/30/2015 11:01 AM
Bought from the devil.
Appearance is a bit rough with some veining visible but smooth seams.
Main flavor is a creamy wood. With a light white pepper in the background that quickly goes away. Towards end cream goes down and leaves just a wood light tobacco/hay like flavor. You feel the strength but I doesn't knock you over by any stretch.
Black gray ash, no burn issues. Wavy but pretty straight burn.

All in all, nothing amazing here, but nothing bad either. Draw is good and flavors are consistent from stick to stick. You know what you'll get and it isn't bad. A good go to, for when you are doing something else, but occasionally just enjoying the cigar.
