I found it to be on the more delicate and smoother side of flavors. I enjoyed the nuances of the cigar with the earthed spice delivery and creamed roasted nuttiness prevalent throughout the entire cigar.

The flavor profile was pretty nice and exhibited some good complexities through the first two thirds. Performance was very good and required no attention. Definitely give this a try as it’s one I’ll be looking forward to smoking more of.

Team Cigar Review: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Todos Las Dias Toro

Team Cigar Review: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Todos Las Dias Toro

No doubt the strongest Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust cigar to date. But this isn't strength just for strength's sake. It's far from that. It is a spicy, earthy and cocoa forward delivery matching well with the intense strength. Definitely pick some up if you want to know how flavor and strength should taste and feel.

If the cigar had smoked like it did in the second third throughout, this cigar would be fantastic and one of the best maduro offerings from the factory since the Illusione Pactum.

Price doesn't factor into the score, but it is an attractive one. If other samples could provide the flavor profile from the first third longer through the cigar, then this could be really good. It's well worth checking out for the price to see if it's something you might enjoy.

As I was hoping, AJ brought a stronger game to a blend under his own brand. Strength is a bit up there, so fans of AJ's stronger blends will be right at home here. This would be a great evening/after dinner cigar and I'm sure would stand up to some nice brown spirits.

Personal Cigar Review: Plasencia Alma del Campo Guajiro

Personal Cigar Review: Plasencia Alma del Campo Guajiro

This sophomore release from Plasencia is the best cigar they have released year to date. The flavor profile is complex with a nice bit of depth and it has this great medium-full body and strength level throughout. Why the company did not have their own brand years ago baffles me, but I am glad they are here now.

Team Cigar Review: Joya Black by Joya de Nicaragua Nocturno

This is a cigar that has a darker profile but not necessarily high in strength. It's something that fits perfect as an after dinner cigar. I could see myself smoking this fairly frequently and I think fans of this flavor profile would as well. If you haven't tried it, it's well worth your time to check out.
