Team Cigar Review: Señorial Maduro Natural El Cuadro

The first third showed terrific potential but sadly transitioned into a mediocre remaining profile. I was hoping the first third's mixture of spice, heat, cream and earth to build in greater intensities but it was the reversal of that.

Team Cigar Review: Herrera Esteli Miami Corona Extra

I really liked the small transitions that the cigar started with. At the midway point, the flavors became more linear. This is another nice addition to the Herrera Esteli line and one I would gladly revisit in the future.

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff 702 Series Aniversario Special R

Honestly, the cigar was a disappointment to me. When you modify a blend by changing the wrapper you can have a lot of success. At the same time, you can have a wrapper that does not go well with the blend. I believe it would have been more productive if they had created a whole new blend to be used with the wrapper.

With this cigar being a re-blend of a vintage cigar, I could see some of the similarities that they were able to accomplish. I think this would be a good cigar to have after a big and heavy meal and would pair well with a brown spirit.

Team Cigar Review: Foundation Charter Oak CT Broadleaf Rothchild

A $5 Connecticut broadleaf providing rich dankness, gritty earth and milk chocolate?! I just found my every day broadleaf cigar (if there is such a thing). This is an easy box purchase. Nick created a budget home run with this blend. Very impressive!

Team Cigar Review: Ventura PSyKo Seven Connecticut Robusto

This is a good Connecticut that I would say fits within the fairly traditional Connecticut profile. I wouldn't hesitate one bit in smoking more of these and would really like to try one in the morning with some coffee.
