Team Cigar Review: My Father La Opulencia Corona

Flavorwise, it was dominantly earth and leather with a great caramel sweetness within the first two thirds, but unfortunately tapering off within the last third. This new blend is definitely worth a try but nothing to go deep on.

Cigar News: Camacho Coyolar Returns

While the blend and formats remain the same, Coyolar makes its return with a bold new look, outfitted with revamped black bands and packaged in unique 25-count grey and black lacquered boxes featuring an abstract design of the mountain ranges in Honduras and Nicaragua.

Team Cigar Review: MBombay Classic Torpedo

Team Cigar Review: MBombay Classic Torpedo

The MBombay Classic Torpedo is on the higher cost side, but as most of the MBombay offerings, it can earn that. If you like a good dose of flavor with a lower strength level, then this is a cigar that is well worth seeking out. I'm looking forward to smoking more.

Team Cigar Review: Gurkha The Master Select Toro

The Gurkha The Master Select already made my personal top cigar list for 2017, much to the howling and gnashing of teeth from online feedback. This is a very well performing cigar, and the price point makes it something that everyone should try for themselves.

Team Cigar Review: La Aurora 1903 Edition Cameroon Corona

La Aurora continues to impress me with their Cameroon wrapper offerings. The La Aurora 1903 Edition Cameroon Corona isn't overly complex but the flavors are direct and full. This type of experience is well worth the $8 MSRP charged.

Team Cigar Review: Espinosa Murcielago Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Espinosa Murcielago Robusto

This is a very nice re-introduction of the Murcielago and one I would go back to often. This would be a good evening/after dinner cigar based on the full and dark flavors along with the strength. Fans of the previous Murcielago's and those that are Espinosa fans are sure to find another favorite here.

Team Cigar Review: Winston Churchill The Late Hour Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Winston Churchill The Late Hour Robusto

The cigar began with wood and an interesting combination of cinnamon and black pepper. Later on it was focused around creamy oak and some floral and musty notes. I never did experience any of the barrel aged notes that I expected.
