Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Habano Vintage Selection Rothschild

Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Habano Vintage Selection Rothschild

This was a tasty little cigar. Well balanced and full of flavors, never letting off the gas pedal from first draw to last. Minerals, baking spices, roasted chestnuts, milk creaminess and white pepper spice. Nothing to dislike about that flavor combination. I thoroughly enjoyed the JRE Aladino Habano Vintage Selection Rothschild and it's an easy recommend.

Cigar News: CAO Vision Returns

After meticulous selection for aesthetics and flavor, only the finest Cameroon wrapper leaves were chosen for CAO Vision. The delicate, toothy wrapper was placed over an Ecuadoran Sumatra binder and Nicaraguan Habano fillers from Estelí and Jalapa. The result is an unforgettable cigar that delivers elaborate notes of nuts and spice and culminates in a subtly-sweet finish.

Team Cigar Review: Viaje Skull and Bones Daisy Cutter 2020

Team Cigar Review: Viaje Skull and Bones Daisy Cutter 2020

The Viaje Skull and Bones Daisy Cutter 2020 was overall a good experience. With a name like Skull and Bones Daisy Cutter you expect some flavor intensity and spice, and the cigar delivers that without being unbalanced. The profile falls right in my wheelhouse and I would smoke these again.

Team Cigar Review: Cattle Baron Maduro Bull

Team Cigar Review: Cattle Baron Maduro Bull

The Cattle Baron Maduro Bull was an overall average smoking experience, with the first third offering some promising flavors of cedar, cream, coffee, cedar and malty sweetness. I would smoke the Maduro again, but I'd be more inclined to try it in a more traditional size like their Stockyard (Robusto).

Team Cigar Review: Biden 2020

Team Cigar Review: Biden 2020

The construction was solid, so was the draw, and the appearance was decent as well. I think the first third was average, followed by a terrible second third, but it finished by delivering some redeeming qualities in the end that touched on the highlights of the first third. Definitely a cigar to pick up for election day and to hold onto for at least four years.

Team Cigar Review: ted's Trump Presidential Cigar

Team Cigar Review: ted’s Trump Presidential Cigar

With such a nice luxurious package (for only $8 nonetheless), the flavor delivery doesn't match up. It's more of your traditional Connecticut shade with softer notes. The ted's Trump Presidential Cigar has a good presentation, but not something I'd come back to.

Team Cigar Review: Perla del Mar Natural Perla G

Team Cigar Review: Perla del Mar Natural Perla G

The Perla del Mar Natural Perla G is a reliably good Ecuadorian Shade offering. After smoking two of these, I'm happy to say that I'd enjoy smoking these on a regular basis, especially when you factor in the price point. The flavor profile managed to balance complexity, while keeping the overall strength in the range of a typical Shade experience.
