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: Hit & Run Super Toro

Team Cigar Review: Hit & Run Super Toro

Not entirely sure what Hit & Run means but the cigar's profile sure doesn't feel like a hit and run. Instead, it shows balance with increasing intensities in various spices and earthiness. I love cigars (like this) where I can enjoy full retrohales without scorching my nostrils.

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: Saga Short Tales Tomo III L.I.V.

This is my first experience with the Short Tales line but has me eager to try the other iterations. In a small format like this, it's hard to ask for more in what it delivers. I would gladly smoke more of these and it is something I wouldn't hesitate to recommend that you try to track down some to smoke so you can see what you think.

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.

Team Cigar Review: La Gloria Cubana Colección Reserva Robusto

Team Cigar Review: La Gloria Cubana Colección Reserva Robusto

I'm pleasantly surprised by this cigar. Luckily, with the talented blending skills of Ernesto Perez-Carrillo (and Jhonys Diaz), this brand is worth giving a serious look. A definite fly under the radar cigar that I will happily smoke more of in the future.

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.

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.
