This was a collaborative review done with others on Blind Man’s Puff. All of the reviewers assessed this cigar unbanded. We did not know what the cigar was until the assessment was published. You can see the full review here.
Blind Man’s Puff is one of a kind review site. The team has established a sophisticated and comprehensive process for doing unbanded reviews. I have really enjoyed being a part of the process.
Soneros was a line introduced about a year ago. This is a cigar that I had not paid attention enough to, but after going through the blind review, I know it is one that I will pay attention to. This is what I wrote as a synopsis:
Overall, this was a real nice cigar. I really liked the balance of the natural tobacco and cocoa flavors as both had a nice synergy throughout the cigar. The medium to full strength and body of this cigar really worked well with this flavor profile. This is definitely a cigar I would smoke again – and it’s certainly worthy of a box split.
The one thing that surprised me is the strength and body. For whatever reason, it seemed higher with this cigar than I remembered. It’s amazing what a blind revue can do.
