Customer Reviews of “BlendLab - YH-542”
Love this smooth little cigar. Medium to full flavored...enough to have a personality without being silly. Very consistent flavor throughout the smoke. I'll leave the flavor adjectives to the pros as as I won't offer you any special insight by regurgitating the same 3 overused terms...pepper, leather, and wood. I'm not good at describing flavors...all I can say is that I like this one. Dense smoke, very well constructed with a perfect draw and even burn. The 4.50 price point is fair for this stick of this quality. What I really like is how this size of cigar can have a distinct personality. I started about 20 years ago on Coronas and Robustos. As our tastes get more sophisticated and we experiment with different shapes, gauges, and flavors, the manufacturers have happily accommodated us with more bold, more flavorful, more everything cigars. What strikes me about this cigar is that it's simple, small, but not at all unremarkable. I've really enjoyed most of my Blendlab cigars and originally planned to sample them all, then move on. For this one, I'll be back!

If it was available for a box purchase I would buy it in a heartbeat. I don't need a box...even just a bundle...I want to purchase more than one at a time!

By far one of the best cigars I've ever smoked. Definately a top shelf cigar.
JH of Parryville, PA
Cigar starts off what I would describe as woody, and stays that way throughout most of the cigar. Towards the halfway point a very light spice comes and goes for a few short puffs. Some leather begins to blend in from the halfway point on. The finish is short, clean, and woody on the palate. The draw throughout had the perfect amount of resistance, but I had to touch up the burn a few times. A Mild cigar with not much complexity. It didn't really suit my profile so I would not buy again.

Good tasting, good burning cigar... Woody and smoky - actually nice smoke for such a smal cigar. Burned quickly (30 minutes or so). The wrapper of the cigar was loose in the middle causing the ash to drop off about half way in - only true compliant... For $4.50 it is an average value... I would smoke it again!

Nice cigar, impeccable construction and presentation. Great, bold texture of creamy sweetness and spices. Leather, roasted nuts, cedar, a little chocolate. Medium plus strength. I had just smoked an Opus X and Tatuaje of comparable sizes - and this test blend would fit right in between them. Definitely a cigar I would buy again!

Really nice, quick cigar. It started off pretty peppery but mellowed into a nice, leathery smoke after the first quarter inch.

Smooth, choclatey, woodsy, excellent draw. Nice, but not terribly unique. I'd buy them again though.

This is a great little cigar that comes in a corona size. Its very complex yet well-balanced. Burn and draw were perfect. A steal for only $4.50!
AH of Barto, PA
Very good cigar in a rather underrepresented size. I found it to be woody and peppery at the start, gently giving way to a smooth creaminess and spice. Overall smoke time of around 30 minutes. Excellent construction, ash was firm and held for about an inch and a half each time. Perfect draw and even burn. I would definitely buy it again.

I was given this cigar as a gift. The size is a favorite, corona. Looking up the description, it was graded medium to full. That was about right. Good even burn and flavor all the way through. Good draw and left a nice cloud of smoke. Strength varid at times through the cigar, but was always satisfying. Price point for a cigar like this was good. Reminded me of Rocky Patel’s Sun . That cigar is one of the better grown, but was a little better ones from his line. I would smoke this cigar again.

This cigar was extremely tasty from beginning to end. It had a pleasant creamy taste from the first puff. I was disappointed when i had to put it down at the end. Definitely worth a reorder. A fablulous 30 minute smoke!

At $4.50 a pop these are a decent value. Construction is tops, burn was even and the draw was on the tight side of free. The cigar looks great and smells like hay and pepper. The light brings pepper and spice with notes of cedar and toast. There is a slightly sweet tobacco flavor that sits in the background the entire time. I only had to fix the burn twice - these were minor touch-ups. Overall this is a good Pepin-esque smoke though somewhat one dimensional in flavor. Not remarkable but good.

Well constructed and great burn. No touch-ups needed once lit. Nice aroma and toasty flavor. I'm enjoying my 2nd purchase and will be back for more.

Flavorful. Spicy. Great draw and burn. Medium body.
DP of Shavertown, PA
The one thing that really stood out to me about this cigar was its sweetness. Not in a flavored way, mind you. Every note from the wood (strong) to the earthiness (medium) to the floral (light) was "sweet". Sweet cedar, sweet earth, sweet tobacco. It was pleasent, at times creamy with almost a hint of vanilla, and always sweet. Interesting. Good looking stick too. Nice wrapper color. Finally, love the corona size. Smaller cigars win over larger format for me, all the time. Might buy again
