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: Alec Bradley Prensado Lost Art Robusto

This may just be the sleeper hit of the year for me. I recall the original release of the Prensado (especially the Churchill format) was a great cigar. This rendition carries forth similarities in that it is flavor driven, but the Lost Art version has deeper flavors and slightly increased strength.

Team Cigar Review: Crux Epicure Robusto

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: 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: Eiroa The First 20 Years Colorado Robusto

Construction was very good and I can see why this cigar is getting some praise. I'd be interested in trying this in a slightly larger vitola to see if the profile builds a bit more. Strength is right around medium, so most smokers would be right at home with this. This is definitely a cigar I'm interested in smoking more of.

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.

Team Cigar Review: Macanudo Inspirado Black Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Macanudo Inspirado Black Robusto

The flavor profile was direct and in a way, as expected of a good tasting broadleaf cigar. In my opinion, General Cigar's shift in bolder marketing and cigar flavor profile of Macanudo is a win, as this will most likely gain popularity of most American smokers who enjoys fuller body and flavors.

Team Cigar Review: Ventura Case Study 02 Robusto

I enjoyed the rich and robust flavors of the cigar that had the power and strength to match. Given this as our first Case Study (and successful one at that), I am now very interested to see what other cigars Ventura has dug up at other aging rooms.

Team Cigar Review: Alpha The Defuser Claro Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Alpha The Defuser Claro Robusto

I was very curious to see what experience this cigar would provide being the exact same blend as the Absinthe infused version but without the infusion. In the end, the cigar was good and shows that the base of the Absinthe infused concept uses a cigar that can stand on its own before the infusion process.

Team Cigar Review: CAO Fuma Em Corda Robusto

This cigar doesn't have the exact DNA as the Amazon Basin. It's not meant to. It has more in the sense of greater spice and earthiness that plays off the sweet raisin note very well. Fans of the Amazon Basin will be in for a treat with this cigar.
