Personal Cigar Review: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Muestra De Saka #NLMTHA

Personal Cigar Review: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Muestra De Saka #NLMTHA

The price point on the Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Muestra De Saka #NLMTHA is quite high, and would likely keep me from returning to this all that often. This version of the MdS is about on par with the others I have smoked. Lancero fans should give this a shot to see what they think.

Team Cigar Review: Camacho Factory Unleashed

Team Cigar Review: Camacho Factory Unleashed

While the Camacho Factory Unleashed does not smoke like a Camacho, it does show some qualities of blends coming out of their Honduran factory. You can get the Honduran, Dominican, Nicaraguan and Ecuadorian tobacco flavors. Good cigar, though not quite sure it does well as a Camacho. It’s not really a Camacho, AVO or Davidoff.

Team Cigar Review: A.C.E. Prime Luciano The Traveler

Team Cigar Review: A.C.E. Prime Luciano The Traveler

The A.C.E. Prime Luciano The Traveler had a nice start, but dropped down to average in the second third and maintained that level of enjoyment the rest of the way. The price point for this cigar is quite high and with the flavor experience I had, I'm not sure I see myself coming back to this one.

Team Cigar Review: Caldwell Blind Man's Bluff Maduro This is Trouble

Team Cigar Review: Caldwell Blind Man’s Bluff Maduro This is Trouble

The Caldwell Blind Man's Bluff Maduro This is Trouble kept me engaged through the first and second thirds with an interesting combination and balance of flavors. The draw and burn were fairly flawless. Based on this review experience I would add this cigar to the list of Caldwell releases I would happily smoke again.

Team Cigar Review: E.P. Carrillo Short Run Retro 2021 Short Play

Team Cigar Review: E.P. Carrillo Short Run Retro 2021 Short Play

This was a good cigar, and it was nice to see a blend like this from E.P. Carrillo again. The E.P. Carrillo Short Run Retro 2021 Short Play had nice flavors of spices, earth, wood, and the overall barnyard qualities were fantastic. It started off a little bit stronger than it finished, but I like when a cigar does that. Really was great to smoke an E.P. Carrillo Short Run offering with the original bands.

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Colorado Claro Special R

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Colorado Claro Special R

When it comes to the White Labels, this Davidoff Colorado Claro Special R is where my attention leads to as this blend hits for me. The price point on the line is fairly high, but it is worth reaching for from time to time and I would recommend that anyone who hasn't tried one yet, do so.

Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Corojo Reserva Figurado

Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Corojo Reserva Figurado

I really enjoyed the JRE Aladino Corojo Reserva Figurado. It is a great blend that produces lovely flavors from beginning to end. Wonderful balance and nice strength and body. For those of you who hate large ring gauges, you will not mind the larger ring gauge with the Toro or the Figurado. It is a line, that when it's in the right vitola, produces an amazing Honduran puro.

Team Cigar Review: Crowned Heads The Lost Angel TAA 2021

Team Cigar Review: Crowned Heads The Lost Angel TAA 2021

The Crowned Heads The Lost Angel TAA 2021 did a good job of balancing out Mexican San Andres and Brazilian Mata Fina, while having them be the focus of the blend and delivering their positive qualities. The cigar had a nice balance between sweet and spicy, and the earth presence was perfect as well. With that, you can’t go wrong with a matte black band. It just looks awesome.
