Team Cigar Review: Mombacho Cosecha 2012

The Mombacho Cosecha 2012 is a really cool concept and has me looking forward to smoking more of these and seeing what other year offerings will provide. If you're a fan of Mombacho or like the concept, this cigar is a must try.

Team Cigar Review: La Aurora ADN Dominicano Robusto

Team Cigar Review: La Aurora ADN Dominicano Robusto

The cigar started off not how I expected with a wave of strength and some very full flavors. I enjoyed it, especially as it smoothed out fairly quickly. The first third was the best and then became less complex in each subsequent third. The La Aurora ADN Dominicano is a good example of what a cigar that uses andullo can do and I'm thinking this might do well for La Aurora.

Cigar News: Crux Limitada PB5 2017 Begins Shipping

As with each of the previous two releases, this is also a limited edition. However, Crux Cigars has increased the production of this release to 1000 10-count boxes. The cigar continues to feature their proprietary Engañoso wrapper leaf that was originally secured in 2012.

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Undercrown Sun Grown Flying Pig

The flavor profile of the Drew Estate Undercrown Sun Grown Flying Pig was primarily oak and earthiness but had some added cinnamon at the beginning and added some mustiness and char towards the end. This is definitely an enjoyable cigar and has me looking forward to smoking more in this vitola as well as the others.

Cigar Accessory Review: Palio Cutter

Cigar Accessory Review: Palio Cutter

Other than when I’m evaluating another cutter, the Palio has been my regular use cutter for about 4 years. I like how light and thin it is and the fact that it has remained very sharp throughout all of the cuts in its life is a testament to the blades.

Team Cigar Review: Southern Draw Jacobs Ladder Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Southern Draw Jacobs Ladder Robusto

Definitely a fuller strength cigar that also delivers on flavor. This is a great addition to the Southern Draw portfolio and one I'm looking forward to smoking more of and trying the other vitolas. If you're a fan of the brand and like fuller strength offerings, then this is a must try.
