Blue Mountain Cigars Anniversario Cigar Review
This 5×50 Robusto-sized cigar features a dual wrapper, the first half a smooth soft tan Connecticut, the upper a dark chocolate, toothy oily Maduro, both with a firm even pack and very rich hay and barnyard aroma. First light reveals a snug draw putting off a decent amount of smoke but it’s very dense with medium-full body flavors of a big creamy smooth and oily sweet wood with a long finish of the same. The first third drops the sweetness, going from a combination of a grassy and burned coffee draw, to a smooth oily wood on the finish. The draw opened up to perfect, producing plenty of smooth smoke. 30 minutes in at the 1/2 way and band transition point, the cigar completely changes to a caramel, tobacco, and pepper on the draw with smooth deep tobacco, pepper, and spice through the long finish. Ending at 50 minutes where it got too hot for my taste, the last bit shifted flavors a touch, just dropping the caramel sweetness on the draw allowing the wood to come up, mixing well with the tobacco pepper and spice.

Blue Mountain Cigars Doble Capa Cigar Review
This 6 1/8×52 stick features a barber pole wrapper alternating with a dark brown and tan pattern, a fine sandpaper texture, firm even pack, minimal veins, tight seams, a few imperfections, torpedo head, and a nice barnyard aroma. The first light reveals a very snug draw, the torpedo tip looking very snug and tight. Minimal smoke output and mild flavors of a faint wood. After sniping the head down as far as I can without it unraveling, the draw didn’t improve but thankfully the smoke output and flavor did. Flavors remain mild and go back and forth between earth and wood, as the different parts of the wrapper trade off a little bit. 30 minutes in just starting the 2nd third, the draw opens up a bit, still snug but body and smoke output increase very nicely. The flavor profile is also joined by sweet cinnamon that leaves an oily spice on the lips through the finish. With the ash holding on to the last third, the 2nd passes by dropping the wood and bringing up the sweetness on the draw. After rolling the head and loosening everything up draw is now perfect with a razor-sharp burn, plentiful thick smoke output, and a long earth and tobacco finish.
This 6×52 stick from Blue Mountain Cigars features dark chocolate firmly packed satin-finished wrapper with minimal veins tight invisible seams, a large double pigtailed cap, and a dusty dry wood aroma. The first light reveals a slightly snug draw with medium-bodied smoke showing flavors of metallic iron-like earth with a sweet kick followed by a short clean finish. The first third continues the sweet earthy core but adds a pepper and cocoa mix, especially on the retro-hale, which isn’t harsh at all. The finish gets longer, just lasting to the next draw. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 35 minutes the flavor profile remains the same, burn is ok, not need a touchup but not straight either. Ending early with a couple of inches left 50 minutes in, the overall burn and performance were just too frustrating to continue. The burn line was fine and it didn’t tunnel, yet flavors were mushy and inconsistent from one draw to the next just leaving a damp ashtray taste, especially on the finish.
