I want to thank Jay for supplying this month GC it is much appreciated. The cigar was very impressive when I looked at it and examined it pre-light. I was expecting a different experience and more fla...Read More
Oscar Valladares Leaf by Oscar Maduro LanceroMarch, 201684
CG Rating
Written by Cigar Geeks Member: DRuff
Overall I liked the cigar, but did not find it to be something I would probably go out of my way to buy. I have had other Leaf by Oscar vitolas and found them much more enjoyable than this cigar. In c...Read More

I'd like to thank Otter and Vivalo for letting me participate in this critique, I very much enjoyed the smoke!  I don't think that the IPA was the best choice for me to pair with the cigar, ...Read More

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: quickme
Overall the stick was enjoyable.  Burn was fantastic and any stick that does not require a touch up or relights in my opinion should be given high marks.  I didn't enjoy the earthy...Read More

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Ken Kelley
Thanks for including me in this critique. This is a beautiful cigar and I wish I could say better things about it. However, lanceros are finicky beasts and they sometimes don't perform as they should....Read More
Vivalo Serie Exclusivo LonsdaleMarch, 201690

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Frank (okieeagle)
This was a wonderful smoke. A medium-full cigar that offered some complexity, a good draw, and ample smoke. Although I paired the cigar with water, I could tell it would be a wonderful accompaniment t...Read More

Overall, this was a good cigar, one I'd definitely smoke again.  It didn't have a "Wow" factor but was tasty nonetheless.  The flavor profile was not what I was expecting, being li...Read More
Dunhill Heritage RobustoFebruary, 201683

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Daniel (millarddj)
This was an extremely well-constructed cigar that performed very well. It's really a shame that this stick didn't fit into my flavor profile, because it'd have an easy 90+ rating if it had. As it was,...Read More
Dunhill Heritage RobustoFebruary, 201688

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Brian (ninfiction)
The cigar was reviewed blind. My guess it that it is Nicaraguan and very My Father/Pepin like. Overall I enjoyed the cigar until the end, construction, burn, smoke output all near perfect. Only thing ...Read More

The first 1/2" of this cigar did not start out well, but after that I really enjoyed it. I was able to get the draw to open up, and was rewarded with a very nice, smooth n creamy smoke. Although there...Read More

Privilegio's Special Line Imperales HabanoJanuary, 201686

Written by Cigar Geeks Member: nirab (nirab)
This was a very enjoyable smoke. It was probably the smoothest Habano wrapped cigar I've smoked. I usually find them to be a bit on the sharp side, but this was extremely smooth, along with a creamine...Read More

Over all this was a decent smoke, although I believe mine could have used a few more months rest before smoking and possibly a little lower humidity than my 65% humidor provided. It wasn't a "wow" cig...Read More

Overall, I enjoyed the cigar. Split cap did not create any real problem nor did the split in the rapper. No smoke was lost through any of these cracks. The cap did come a bit aggravating near the very...Read More

I would have preferred a bit more sweetness then this cigar provided. Also it is not, by any means, a complex stick. I hope the small crack in the wrapper was a one-time occurrence.
