Our friends over at Blinds Man Puff recently did a review of our Flat Iron #2. The mission behind Blind Man’s Puff is to create a web site to get a consensus on a cigar from multiple experienced reviewers without them knowing what they are smoking. Often people have preconceived notions about cigars, whether good or bad, based on their brand or preference. Sometimes people get stuck in the habit of only smoking certain brands they know they like, or are afraid to try new ones. The hope is that this blog will broaden smoker’s horizons and possibly get an appreciation for cigars they would have written off or not tried otherwise. There may also be surprises the other way, they may review a cigar that most people think is synonymous with greatness only to find it’s overrated.
Our Flatiron was reviewed blind (no bands) by a panel of 4 reviewers. They did not know what they were smoking beforehand. The scores are an average of all the reviewers’ scores.
The Martinez Flatiron #2 scored an 88 overall, making it a GOOD cigar according to their scale.
Here is what a couple of the reviewers had to say:
“This was a really great cigar to smoke during my annual camping trip. Wasn’t to light and wasn’t a pepper bomb. Perfect mix of flavors paired well with a few glasses of scotch by the campfire. These will not disappoint. Enjoy.” And “The draw was really nice on this cigar. I used a straight cut and angled it which gave off a really good amount of smoke and flavor.” –Steve
“Well made with a nice shape, and no problem areas. Evenly constructed, with no soft or hard spots.” – Derek
