Team Cigar Review: Cornelius & Anthony Aerial Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Cornelius & Anthony Aerial Robusto

The Aerial showed great depths of flavors starting with the familiar La Zona spice kick upfront and good identifiable flavors. A great representation of well rounded and building intensities of flavors. I say give a Connecticut Shade hater an unbanded Aerial and show him/her the bands afterwards to see their surprise.

Team Cigar Review: Highclere Castle Toro

Team Cigar Review: Highclere Castle Toro

If cigars tasted this good in the early 1900s, then sign me up. Don't let the light wrapper fool you, the Highclere Castle Toro has plenty of depth and body to enjoy on a stand alone basis and paired with a nice spirit. A luxurious look paired with a luxurious taste. I need a Rolls Royce to smoke this cigar in.

Team Cigar Review: Alec Bradley Prensado Lost Art Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Alec Bradley Prensado Lost Art Robusto

This may just be the sleeper hit of the year for me. I recall the original release of the Prensado (especially the Churchill format) was a great cigar. This rendition carries forth similarities in that it is flavor driven, but the Lost Art version has deeper flavors and slightly increased strength.

Team Cigar Review: Berger & Argenti Entubar Double Corona

Team Cigar Review: Berger & Argenti Entubar Double Corona

While I remember enjoying the original Entubar, I don't recall the flavor profile. In the instance of the new Berger & Argenti Entubar Double Corona, the profile's first third was great, but led to a mundane average profile within the remaining two thirds. I think this cigar will do better with a thinner ring gauge and shorter length, which I will track down in the hopes of remembering the good old times.

Team Cigar Review: Crux Epicure Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Crux Epicure Robusto

In the case of the Crux Epicure Robusto, it is a bolder, straight forward and tasty flavor profile that can be enjoyed any time of the day. Have no hesitation in buying these.

Team Cigar Review: Hit & Run Super Toro

Team Cigar Review: Hit & Run Super Toro

Not entirely sure what Hit & Run means but the cigar's profile sure doesn't feel like a hit and run. Instead, it shows balance with increasing intensities in various spices and earthiness. I love cigars (like this) where I can enjoy full retrohales without scorching my nostrils.

Team Cigar Review: La Gloria Cubana Colección Reserva Robusto

Team Cigar Review: La Gloria Cubana Colección Reserva Robusto

I'm pleasantly surprised by this cigar. Luckily, with the talented blending skills of Ernesto Perez-Carrillo (and Jhonys Diaz), this brand is worth giving a serious look. A definite fly under the radar cigar that I will happily smoke more of in the future.

Team Cigar Review: Jeremy Jack JJ15 Corona Gorda

This cigar no doubt has Aganorsa Corojo profile written all over it. Rich and deep spice, sweetness, earth, it's all there. Love Jeremy Jack for sourcing their cigars from a top notch factory and quality tobacco. I'm very interested to taste the remaining offerings.

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff The Master Selection 2010

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff The Master Selection 2010

A truly enjoyable smoking experience providing building complexities and strength. The fullness in flavors and at the same time balance of flavors was a treat to experience. This Davidoff release is one not to be missed.
