Team Cigar Review: Room101 11th Anniversary

The Room101 11th Anniversary is an LE cigar that doesn't command an astronomical price point and it's actually good. This is becoming a foreign concept lately, smoking through the various highly expensive store exclusives and other LEs. Buy this with confidence.

Personal Cigar Review: Pichardo Clasico

Personal Cigar Review: Pichardo Clasico

The Pichardo Clasico had a fairly average flavor profile and experience level throughout. There were a core set of flavors with some minimal transitions. The strength was a bit sneaky, as I was feeling it a bit in the final third. The price point is approachable, so it's well worth a try, I'm just note sure how often I see myself coming back to it though.

Team Cigar Review: Mavros Revolucionarios Especiales

Team Cigar Review: Mavros Revolucionarios Especiales

I was intrigued by the Mavros Revolucionarios Especiales from it being a new brand, originating from Mexico and the story behind it. The price point is quite high, and I see that being a bit of a barrier for people trying it. Based on my experience, I don't see coming back to it, especially at the price point, but I am glad I got a chance to try it.

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Tampa Exclusive 2021

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Tampa Exclusive 2021

I was really pleased with the Davidoff Tampa Exclusive 2021. A very good cigar from start to finish. The flavors of cedar, cream, coffee and spice throughout were fantastic. It delivered those classic Davidoff flavors that you would get in the Anniversario or Signature, but with a lot more strength. It made me think of a lighter version of the Davidoff Chef’s Edition 50th Anniversary.

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje MBS FK

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje MBS FK

The Tatuaje MBS FK had a just above average flavor profile that delivered for me the best experience through the first third. The format is small and approachable, and provided some interesting complications on the cigar. I might smoke this cigar again if I had the opportunity, but there are a lot of other really great Tatuaje options to choose from.
