“This is by far my favorite cigar! If you're a fan of Kuba Kuba, Copper Label, Java Mint or any other flavored cigar, this is absolutely the best of em all. It's burns and pulls so nice and consistent. The flavors just dance all over your mouth!”
“This IS soooo good, you're tasting flavor for days! Get some!”
“First I will say this is my first “Blend Labs” stick, however, it was recommended in store just yesterday. I toasted and lit this cigar and was immediately impressed. The wrapper is darker than most cigars I smoke; however, the flavor was top notch. I would say it has the same flavor between the CI Legends Copper and the Acid 1400CC. Now I know that both of those listed are a Drew Estates and although Blend Labs are not supposed to be know, this is a know Drew Estates smoke too. It is obviously an infused cigar, but I want to place this in my top 5 cigars for enjoyment. As an aside, it produced the most smoke of any cigar I have ever had. I can not wait to stop by CI on my way home from work tomorrow to pick up a bundle!”
“....these are one of my favorites along with my brothers. I always keep a stash of these for myself and company as they are always a hit....”
“Very nice flavor, sweet and herby. The fill is a little looser on this cigar, giving an easy draw and lots of smoke. I will definitely be getting myself more of these in the near future.”
“This is my second review of these cigars. I've been buying VB-6744 Blend Lab cigars for several years now. They have become my #1 cigar of choice for smoking anytime of the day or night. Occasionally I check out a new cigar here or there, maybe something I haven't tried yet, but 98% of the cigars in my humidor are these ones. Really like the infused tips, not that the entire cigar is flavored, because I don't care for flavored smokes. However, with the tips being infused, and all the "herbs and botanicals" it makes for a very smooth, tasty cigar. Very consistent across the board, smooth easy draw, lots of good quality, aromatic smoke as well -- when people catch the aroma, they always ask me what kind of cigar I'm smoking. I've given these to a few of my friends and they all come back wanting another. I tell them where they can go...............Cigars International, of course.”
“CI's version of an infused cigar. Enjoyed the smoke very well. Nice swettness on the tip, medium body and burned well after a touch up. Would prefer it in a little larger ring gauge.”
“Found this cigar to be very enjoyable, however saw too many similarities between it and the Del Sol coffee infused to justify the additional cost (strictly in flavor). The burn temp was fantastic and the flavor and aroma were great. If the ring gauge was slightly larger I would probably purchase these in large quantity over the Del Sol.”
“From draw to release, each action trancended smoothly. A mature and subtle body with a mild to medium strength. Easily a new favorite.”
“Great smoke 2/3 way through then it becomes hot, flavors leave and not to enjoyable the rest of the way.”
“great taste, tight draw toward last 1/3 of cigar. Had to relight cigar twice. Held ash for about 1/2" at most.”
“Had this "blend" given to me by a friend. Loved it, 1st thing I noticed was the aromatics of this stick - (fresh, clean,herbal). Burned well, light to medium in strength, great clouds of smoke, consistant through out. Liked it so much ordered 10 more. A great smoke early morning with coffee and as a night cap. Try it is is different - good but different.”
“smooth, creamy, tasty.very aromatic”
“Sweet outside wrapper has a clove taste with heavy sweet black tea air to the smoke, is full and meaty in the mouth with nice black pepper inside taste from the sun grown filler . It is an over all good smoke from a Drew Estate. The taste stay about the same from begining to the end without getting to heavy.”
“The moment I took it out of the wrapper the arroma of the cigar was fantastic. The sweet taste of the leaf in my mouth was a very pleasent surprise. The draw and burn were tremendous compared to other cigars I have had. Top rate cigar in which I will be purchasing again. Thank you CI!”
“The wrapper had a sweet and spicy, vanilla or chai tea smell and it initially tasted slightly bitter but hints of vanilla chai and spice came through. Very aromatic smoke, which smelled like sandlewood and vanilla.
Mellowed ½ inch in, and tasted like sweet fine black spiced tea, citrus, vanilla. I have always been skeptical about infused cigars but this changed me. I will be ordering more of these and will wait and hope that Drew Estate brings these out. Way to go!
I have always been reserved”
“this blenb was given to me ba a friend who knew I like drew estate infused cigars. I was very pleased with the size the taste ,Ring gauge and mild flavor. This is the best ciger I have Had in a long time.”
“Was at Cigar Fest and was turned on to it by Joe (I think that was his name?) I told him I like sweet cigars from Drew Estases and he pointed me to this AWESOME cigar. He also informed me that this will be making into the Drew Estates line soon.”
“When I saw it was made by Drew Estate, I knew I would get something worth the $6 price tag. Seeing that I also knew the infused flavor would be a litte much. Overall it was a good smoke, 89.”
“A good cigar that has a great draw, but is not something that stands out over others that I have had. The burn got uneven a couple times, but for that most part was well constructed. I think the price was a little high for a "test cigar". On to some others now....”
“First BlendLab purchase (New Super Store) I have nothing bad to say about this blend I am a maduro fan so this was in my wheelhouse. Will buy again. This is exactly as described and if you are a fan of JD I highly reccomend this cigar. great burn, lots of smoke.”
“This is the first time I have rated a blend. I love Drew Estates and Acids in particular. This is right there with my favorites, Blondies and Col dTea Infusion.
I will buy this cigar again.”
“Great addition to drew estate product line. Superb pairing with a cup of Earl Gray Tea. Freinds of mine enjoyed this stick also. Personaly this one same level as the Java, also a great flavored cigar.
“This cigar blends the best of many worlds, its contrcution is nearly flawless (though a few veins did pop out) the burn is smooth, the shape is spot on, and the flavor mixes sweet, earth, and spice. I am looking to picking up many more...”
“Very enjoyable.........super flavor........pleasant.........sweet on the lips. I want to experience some more of these.”
“First time trying this infused blend.I have to say it was great.Good flavor,burn and draw.Will be getting more for sure.Very good cigar.Thanks CI!!!!”
“stored at home @ 72for a coulpe of days, v cut and pulled a draw. not bad. V cut and lighted up. Found the flovered tip alittle to sweet, wore ok after. 1st 1/3 draw was tight nutmeg and very dry cedar, 2/3 better draw wallnut skins, slight vanilla undertones last 3rd vanilla, and pepper. full body, not bad along the acid line rate it an 85-88”
“i absolutely loved this cigar im a big fan of ACID cigars . I was pleasently suprised by the draw and taste of this cigar i will definetly purchase again.”
“This is a Drew Estate in the Acid tradition and has a sweetened tip. The blend in taste and smell is exceptional and very enjoyable. However, the cigar burned too fast and produced far too much smoke. For the first half, it burned inconsistant and the ash was loose and peeled outward like a banana. About just under half way, there was a bit of cracking with the wrapper. The cigar did not crack past that and started to burn consistantly with a tight ash. Great taste, terrible construction.”
“Wow what a great smoke (VB-6744). At first I was somewhat taken aback by the sweetened tip. But just a few puffs later and the spicy, peppery back notes started to blend with the initial sweetness to give it that classic contrast in flavors. I believe I’ve found my new cigar of choice. I hope these become available on a regular basis, because they will be my "go-to" cigar for after dinner and evening relaxing.”
“I loved this cigar. When I lit it up, all my buddies stoped puffing on theirs and asked what the heck it was. They said I quote "that smells frick'n awesome". I happily responed, "it tastes as good as it smells". When I heard it was a drew estate I did not doubt it would be enjoyable. It was better than enjoyable and wish I could purchase a box of them monthly. C.I., would be dumb not to put this puppy into production. This was an experience any Drew Estate lover should have.”
“this was my first infused cigar and i found it, surprisingly, enjoyable. i say "surprisingly" because it had a funky, almost chemical smell pre-light, but i enjoyed it and will try it again. i'm not saying i'm going to make it a part of my regular rotation, or that i'm going to try other drew estate infuseds, but it definitely warrants further research”
“Code on wrapper was VB-6477, so I suspect sonce there isn't a code to choose from matching this that someone transposed numbers. Smell and taste close to Drew Estate Opulence 3 but sweeter and milder. This cigar would be best served as a bug deterrent! Excessive smoke and burned like a cheap "backwoods." Ash peeled back like a bananna. This cigar probably would be enjoyed by a person just experiencing cigars. Thumbs down!”
“After my experience smoking my second VB6744 AND reading other reviews, I've decided that the construction just isn't consistent on these. This one had a very tight draw and burned unevenly as others have noted, but my first one was fantastic in every aspect of construction. Great appearance on both. I am not in any way much of a fan of ACID but I've only had the Kuba Kuba and Toast, but this is basically an ACID cigar and I did really like it a lot (the first one). Not too sweet to my taste.”
“Excellent infused cigar. Definitely hope to partake of moe.”
“I hope this is the right blend code as I have VB-6477 on my tag. In any case, you can tell this is a Drew Estate cigar. I absolutely love this cigar, it was an incredible smoke, so much so I bought 20 of them. I recommend making this part of the ACID collection and using this to replace the ACID Nasty.
“This is the second stick out of the Blend Lab for me.. This one was my intro into the flavored!!! WOW to SWEET!! it took almost the whole cigar for me to get over the sweetness. it was way overpowering. I was not expecting the very sugary taste.. If that is what you like it would be a great cigar.. just not for me.. Sorry..”
“i visited the store today and was told about this blend by a very helpful gentlemen that had noticed the other Drew Estates singles i had in my basket I truly wish i had gotten his name. I must say that this is now my absolute favorite cigar. It is hard to describe due to my inexperience in reviewing a cigar. I purchased 3 of these to share with 2 buddies but they will have to get their own now. I'm going to be selfish with these. I will be ordering a bundle of 20 next week. AWESOME CIGAR !”
“I smoked 3 of these now, not the greatest doing reviews but this stick is a must have. Little over 3/4 way through over 2 hours later. Great smoke, nice olily wrapper. Flavor never stops, gets better and better the longer it goes. Great sweet flavor that doesn't overwhelm. If you are looking to try your first infused cigar this is it. Make this cigar into a permnament line and you will have me buying so much Ill prob get threaten with divorce.”
“Very fine cigar. Excellent taste and aroma. Good old fashioned smoke.”
“I think this cigar is excellent the only reason I gave it a low rating in a few fields was because I found the cigar difficult to get a solid draw on. I found myself drawing hard on the cigar to get a good puff. Also but more my own preference is that I prefer a slightly larger guage cigar. Other then those things I truely enjoyed the flavor and aroma and everything else. With the draw loosened up I would give it a 10 in all catagories”
“I really enjoyed this smoke, its a smooth full bodied cigar with alot of flavor, its not overwheming but has enough to set itself apart from other sticks. the flavors are complex and hard enough to figure out but it seems to taste like espresso and vanillas but still has a smokey dark flavor that doesnt let sweetness get out of hand, i would recommend this as a good starter infused, i think it could rope people into trying more, i like it alot 7 out of 10 :)”
“Bought 2, enjoyed with a friend... Nothing spectacular but very nice all around. Nice sweet taste on your lips, with a mellow sweetness and a dash of spice on the tongue. If you like the occasional infused stogie snag a few of these.”
“thanks to Joe,s recommendation I can't get enough of this cigar. Please stock more drove thirty miles and were out .”
“Loved it, would buy again. Strong hinst of Cinnamon, Clove, Spice. Sweet hint of citrus in there somewhere too. Towards the end once the nub got even slightly warm it lost all its flavor, leaving the last 2 inches unsmokable, but every inch before that was awesome, just wish it followed through to the end. I am reordering VB-6744 now!”
“This was my 4th blendlab cigar, and the first one I loved! I'd buy it again in a heartbeat! The complex flavors were great. Sweet but full flavored, strong of Cinnamon, Clove, Sprices and subthle citrus hint, almost like holiday-spice with a hint of orange!
Towards the end, once the nub got slightly warm the cigar lost most of its flavor, leaving the last 2" of it unsmokable. For some this is ok as they don't usually smoke them that far down, however I was enjoying it so much I wanted that inch”
“This is a great tasting cigar! It had a bold beginning and then it mellowed out. I would definately purchase this cigar again. I like most of the Drew Estate cigars on the Acid, Natural and Java lines. This will be a fine edition to the D.E Family!”
“Hands down one of the best cigars I have ever smoked. I will definitely be purchasing this cigar again. Just the smell of the cigar was amazing. The taste was great, it was a slow burn and each puff was better than the last. I would highly recommend purchasing this cigar, I know I will be purchasing it again. Also each puff creating a cloud of smoking with was awesome. Thank you for creating this awesome cigar!”
“This cigar burns evenly, taste and smells great. This has become my number one cigar in my box. I recommend it to all my friends. I have one humidor dedicated to this very cigar.”
“very good flavor, long lasting, flavor remained throughout, very smooth”
