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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Team Cigar Review: Foundation The Wise Man Maduro Corona Gorda

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.
