Quick Smoke: Blind Man’s Bluff Magnum

13 Feb 2016

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar.

Magnum

Robert Caldwell’s Blind Man’s Bluff, introduced at the 2015 IPCPR Trade Show, broke from his earlier releases. It is not as strong, and it’s made in Honduras, at the factory where Davidoff rolls Camacho. The Magnum (6 x 60, $9.50) features an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, Honduran Criollo binder, and filler from Honduras and the Dominican Republic. It burns extremely slowly, though not perfectly. Flavors start with a nice spice that quickly fades, opening up to include the common Honduran leather along with burned coffee and some sweetness. A worthwhile smoke, though perhaps better in a smaller size.

Verdict = Buy.
