Blind Cigar Review: J.C. Newman | Cuesta-Rey Centro Fino Sungrown No. 60

“Overall this is a decent breakfast smoke with no true transitions. If you’re looking for something to kill some time and not really looking for something complex. This is a nice smoke to pair with coffee. I prefer something with a little more character, even for my breakfast smoke. All in all, this is close but no cigar… Get it? Lol. -_-” -Jonathan R. (J.Lee)

Blind Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua | Número Uno Le Premier

“This cigar is my gig. Nice mild-medium bodied profile flavors of oak, vanilla, cream, custard, sweet milk caramels and the slightest bit of pepper to give this cigar great character.
