Ambrosia, Triple Corona - 9.5/10
When I buy cigars, I buy them blindly and based on names that seem to pop out to me. I don’t normally don’t read other peoples reviews on them before I purchase the cigar. The guys at the small town tobacco store don’t know what they are selling in the one wall humidor let alone know what the actual prices are when they ring me up at the counter. They aren’t helpful with lack of knowledge of cigars and are too busy with helping the people in cars getting cigarettes in the drive-thru window. So, I am alone in this little hobby of mine. I doubt that anyone else is reading these sorryass reviews, but hey, it’s a free world and I couldn’t be more happier do these reviews and puffing on cigars while I’m at it.
Anyways, when I smoked this cigar, it was at the park watching my kids. I didn’t know what to expect when I got a blast of clove and sweet tea, rum like flavor. Midway the sweet clove taste stayed pretty consistant with hints of cinnamon and velvet cherry creme. I didn’t want to put the cigar down. If you like the taste of cloves, then try this cigar. 9.5/10
Warlock - 9.5/10
This packs one hell of a punch with its full bodied taste from the start. It almost knocked me out from retrohaling the ultra peppery smoke. The pepper taste is prominent all throughout the duration of the smoke session, but midway there was a balance of pepper, and velvety creamy coffee was present. ¾ of the way the hint pepper was still there with the coffee creamer and almost floral taste. I didn’t want to put the cigar down. This cigar is for those of you that like the full-bodied taste in a cigar. I suggest drinking dessert coffee with this after a steak meal. 9.5/10
Cheyenne 100s, Full Flavor - 1/10
“Oh you like cigars huh?”
One day, the guy at the local corner store suggested these cigarette 100s sized cigars. Cheyenne come in many different flavors from strawberry, peach, grape, and so on, but I’m going to review the Full Flavor.
Upon opening the pack, to my confusion, the “cigars” had a filter on it, suggesting you COULD inhale them. Now, at second thought, I thought, “Wow, the best of both worlds a cigarette you can inhale that tastes like a cigar.” With much caution, I quickly looked up in the internet if you could inhale them, it was a three sided deal. On one hand, you had the people who thought they were macho and proudly said they inhaled these filtered cigars. The other, said that it had too many carcinogens and a shit ton of crap in them to inhale. The third, just said to avoid them all together. I had to see test it out. What of the taste? At first puff, it tasted like super low quality cigar. At first inhale, it tasted like smoking two stale Marlboro reds at the same time. I wasn’t impressed, the smoke was a little harsh and tasted, well, like burning smoke. Personally, I can’t imagine that inhaling these constantly, as if you were smoking a cigarette, would be good for you in the long run. I just don’t trust this, a cigar disguised as a cigarette, it just doesn’t seem right to me. The price was cheap for a pack of 20, but you get what you pay for.
Backwoods, Honey - 8.5/10
Oh man, what a treat. The quality of tobacco isn’t that bad, but the sweet taste of honey at the beginning till end is pretty good. The aroma of smoke is almost incense like and sweet to the nose. It’s a good everyday smoke after a meal. It hits the spot and it’s readily available in almost every gas station in the U.S. With the uneven shape of the small cigars, heads will double take as people think you are smoking a “blunt” filled with “stuff”, but will think otherwise as they notice a much awesome smell rather than a danky pungent weed filled blunt. Kinda funny, I used to smoke these and throw away the filler, but nothing wrong (for all you weed smokers) with actually trying to puff on them as is. I am always tempted to inhale these delectable cigars, but that’s a big no no.
Joya De Nicaragua - 8.5/10
My first quality cigar I’ve smoked. My friend, who’s Nicaraguan, told me the best cigars are from Nicaragua (aside from Cuba). Skeptical and blindly, I went out and bought one cigar. I had no idea what I was in for, it being my first cigar to puff on. Like a total noob, I cut the cap with scissors (unevenly) and accidentally inhaled the first drag when lighting it. Goes without saying I coughed a lung out. After getting accustomed to actually puffing and tasting the cigar smoke, I found it to be very spicy tasting. I couldn’t fully enjoy the whole experience as I struggled to get a good puff. The whole time I wished it would drag a bit better, but enjoyed the taste experience. Spicy at the start until midway, then it started to taste creamy and oily with a hint of spiciness to nip the tongue. There were moments of a good pull from the cigar and that was when I tasted the full flavors of it. There were times I was conflicted to either put it down and stop the struggle of the drag versus the awesome full bodied taste. Taste won. 8.5/10
