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.

There's no doubt there's youth and edge, but not so much that you cannot ID the true flavors behind the cigar. I'll give this cigar another 2 to 3 years to let it settle into what it is supposed to be.

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.

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.

In some samples, the rum barrels are more pronounced and those tend to be sweeter and creamier, but even samples which are less pronounced still deliver that flavor at a softer, less sweet level. This is really an enjoyable cigar that you need to spend some time on.

The cigar needs more aging (1 to 2 years) for especially the Medio Tiempo to meld with the other tobacco leaves. In my experience, once the Medio Tiempo further ages, the cigar will be less spicy and slick, and a better melded array of flavors will be the result.

Personal Cigar Review: La Palina Goldie Toro

Personal Cigar Review: La Palina Goldie Toro

This was a solid Goldie and I think it will do well with consumers, mostly because of the size, but it is not my favorite of the Goldies. With time, the flavors will develop in the second and final third, knock on wood, and that will help the cigar in terms of flavors. With that being said, the draw and construction were great and a majority of cigar smokers will truly enjoy.

There is depth from start to finish, transitioning throughout and it never lacked the complexity that you expect from an ultra-premium cigar. The balance between the flavors is fantastic and the changing pepper and spice notes is simply great.

This is possibly one of the best Caldwell releases I have had, and the blend smokes well throughout the line. It is a blend that needs some time aging though and I believe it smokes better after being stored at a lower humidity level.

It had a nice full body and strength quality for most of the cigar, and had a smooth finish which made you want another one right afterwards. Not my favorite Camacho, but a cigar worth trying.
