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: Dapper El Borracho Natural Toro

The Dapper El Borracho Natural Toro was a good introduction to the brand for me. This one has me looking forward to the other lines the company offers. Strength was a bit above medium, so most smokers should be fine with it. I could see this cigar pairing well with a peated whisky. The cigar is well worth a try to see if you find a new brand that can earn some room in your humidor.

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.

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: Pappy Van Winkle Tradition Toro

The cigar started off with a nice wood and spice combination. As things progressed it settled into a standard woody profile with some char and alternated between this and a slightly green wood note.

Team Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua Antaño Gran Reserva Belicoso

The flavor and strength level started subtle and then eased higher the further I got into the cigar which is appreciated. Cedar and oak along with some baking spice made for a nice flavor profile. It was nice seeing this variation of the line and it is one that I will gladly smoke more of.

Team Cigar Review: Espinosa Pier 28 Maduro Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Espinosa Pier 28 Maduro Robusto

A lot of cocoa through the first third along with some crushed red pepper and wood. As it progressed, it settled into an oak and cocoa profile. This is a very nice variation on the Pier 28 line.
