Personal Cigar Review: Stallone Cowboy Series Zaino Broadleaf Robusto

Personal Cigar Review: Stallone Cowboy Series Zaino Broadleaf Robusto

If you're a fan of darker profiles with a bit of strength, the Stallone Cowboy Series Zaino Broadleaf Robusto might be right up your alley. For me, it was a bit too dry and linear from the second third on. I wouldn't see myself returning to this cigar all that often.

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo Epic Vintage 12 Blue Toro

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo Epic Vintage 12 Blue Toro

The Montecristo Epic Vintage 12 Blue Toro kept me interested and engaged through the first and second thirds, with at times intense flavors that managed to find a balance and harmonize. The last third was a bit of a disappointment with a largely wood driven profile that didn't offend, but didn't provide anything special

Team Cigar Review: United Cigar Abuelo Nieta

Team Cigar Review: United Cigar Abuelo Nieta

The United Cigar Abuelo Nieta was fairly engaging in the first third, and provided a rather light-plus and approachable smoking experience for the second and last thirds. Overall, it was a pleasant cigar review, even if the complexity of the flavor profile didn't rise to the category of a Good rating.

Team Cigar Review: Diamond Crown Julius Caeser Et tu, Brute?

Team Cigar Review: Diamond Crown Julius Caeser Et tu, Brute?

The Diamond Crown Julius Caeser Et tu, Brute? had some highlights in the first third with interesting complexity, but lost most of those notes by the second third, leaving me with a fairly average experience for two thirds of the cigar. I would smoke another Et Tu Brute? again if I had the opportunity, if only to see whether the flavor performance could live up to what the first third offered.

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje Fausto The Old Man and the C Culebra

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje Fausto The Old Man and the C Culebra

There is something redeeming about a unique cigar like the culebras smoking good. But the fact that the three cigars are quality cigars, and the fact that they happen to be culebras is amazing. I am sure there are plenty of cigar smokers out there that have never smoked a culebra, but with the Tatuaje Fausto The Old Man and the C Culebra, you are getting something of quality with fun presentation.

Team Cigar Review: Camacho Liberty 2021

Team Cigar Review: Camacho Liberty 2021

Granted, I haven't consistently kept up with the Camacho Liberty Series (especially the newer releases), I never had this type of lackluster experience. And being completely honest, this Camacho Liberty 2021 borderlines being average and subpar. The mixture of flavors were odd and unbalanced being oddly bitter and leathery dry vegetation driven with minerals and cedar.

Personal Cigar Review: Padrón 1926 Serie Maduro No. 2

Personal Cigar Review: Padrón 1926 Serie Maduro No. 2

The Padrón 1926 Serie Maduro No. 2 had a nice flavor combination centered around toasted oak and earth with a supporting black pepper. Some coffee joined in which added another nice supporting component. I definitely prefer this maduro version to the natural and would be the one I gravitate towards if given the choice. The price point is high, but if it's something you enjoy, you'll find the funds for it.
