Team Cigar Review: Punch Gran Puro Nicaragua Toro

Team Cigar Review: Punch Gran Puro Nicaragua Toro

The flavor profile carried earthiness and cocoa through the first third and then moved into a pretty standard profile of earthiness and wood the rest of the way. The price point on this cigar is great, so even though the flavors didn't wow me, it was very consistent and would allow someone who finds this cigar a fit for them to go pretty deep on them as a daily smoke.

Team Cigar Review: MoyaRuiz Il Ridotto Biribi

Team Cigar Review: MoyaRuiz Il Ridotto Biribi

The MoyaRuiz Il Ridotto Biribi is another good offering in the MoyaRuiz portfolio and one I would have no problem going back to. If you're a MoyaRuiz or Espinosa fan, you'll be right at home here, but if you haven't checked out what MoyaRuiz puts out, then this is a great one to get acclimated with.

Team Cigar Review: Mombacho Cosecha 2012

The Mombacho Cosecha 2012 is a really cool concept and has me looking forward to smoking more of these and seeing what other year offerings will provide. If you're a fan of Mombacho or like the concept, this cigar is a must try.

Team Cigar Review: La Aurora ADN Dominicano Robusto

Team Cigar Review: La Aurora ADN Dominicano Robusto

The cigar started off not how I expected with a wave of strength and some very full flavors. I enjoyed it, especially as it smoothed out fairly quickly. The first third was the best and then became less complex in each subsequent third. The La Aurora ADN Dominicano is a good example of what a cigar that uses andullo can do and I'm thinking this might do well for La Aurora.

Team Cigar Review: Serino Wayfarer Corona Gorda

Team Cigar Review: Serino Wayfarer Corona Gorda

The Serino Wayfarer Corona Gorda was first and foremost all about flavor with strength as a second thought. Although tasty, the balance was thrown off at times such that it was too mineral forward, taking away from the other nuances and complexities. Nonetheless, this is a great new addition to Serino's portfolio and well worth checking out.

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff The Master Selection 2008

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff The Master Selection 2008

The Davidoff The Master Selection 2008 smokes well now and will smoke only better with age. It has a great flavor profile that changes throughout and while the flavors are core flavors in the sense that they are always present, it is their dominance which changes and that is always a fun experience.

Team Cigar Review: Sacra Folium Radix

Team Cigar Review: Sacra Folium Radix

The Sacra Folium Radix was creamy, sweet, earthy and just flat out good. The strength never remotely approached full. This is one to grab a few to try.

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Undercrown Sun Grown Flying Pig

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Undercrown Sun Grown Flying Pig

The flavor profile of the Drew Estate Undercrown Sun Grown Flying Pig was primarily oak and earthiness but had some added cinnamon at the beginning and added some mustiness and char towards the end. This is definitely an enjoyable cigar and has me looking forward to smoking more in this vitola as well as the others.

Team Cigar Review: Saga Short Tales Tomo IV L.O.V.

Team Cigar Review: Saga Short Tales Tomo IV L.O.V.

I find it great that a little 4 x 44 petite cigar, like this Saga Short Tales Tomo IV L.O.V., can have so many flavors. It's a shame there aren't many petite cigars in the market place, let alone ones that have this much flavor. Take it slow with this cigar and you'll be rewarded with a great, short and flavored experience.

Team Cigar Review: Smoking Jacket Henkie

Team Cigar Review: Smoking Jacket Henkie

The Smoking Jacket Henkie was a pleasure to smoke through and through. I loved how the flavors were so full, especially in sweetness, earth and just the right amount of balanced spice. Don't sleep on this one.
