Team Cigar Review: Casa Cuevas Cuevas Reserva Maduro Toro

Team Cigar Review: Casa Cuevas Cuevas Reserva Maduro Toro

The Casa Cuevas Cuevas Reserva Maduro Toro is fantastic and shows great spice, stone fruit and dark chocolate notes. It is complex and smokes at a great medium-full level from start to finish. The construction was dead on and with that, the draw was fantastic. You will not be disappointed with the blend.

Team Cigar Review: Lords of England Connecticut No. 3 Churchill

Team Cigar Review: Lords of England Connecticut No. 3 Churchill

The Lords of England Connecticut No. 3 Churchill started with a nice profile but once the sweetness left and dry earth joined in, it knocked the profile down to average the rest of the way. With a profile this linear, I would prefer it in a shorter vitola rather than such a lengthy smoking experience. This vitola isn't something I'd likely return to, but I would be interested in revisiting this in the Robusto to see what the overall profile would be like. Might be interesting paired with some coffee.

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff of Geneva 25th Anniversary

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff of Geneva 25th Anniversary

The Davidoff of Geneva 25th Anniversary is a fantastic blend and it had depth and complexity throughout. It is an elegant Dominican puro and my favorite use of the Yamasa wrapper to date. The size really works with the blend and I like this offering in a large format.

Team Cigar Review: Aging Room Bin No. 2 C Major

Team Cigar Review: Aging Room Bin No. 2 C Major

The Aging Room Bin No. 2 C Major had a nice first third, but from the second third on, started dropping flavors and became fairly average. The tight draw and light smoke production caused me to have to pay attention to the draws to keep things burning, which took some focus away from the flavor. I'd be interested in trying this in a smaller ring gauge to see what that effect that has on flavor.

Team Cigar Review: Villiger Do Brasil Maduro Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Villiger Do Brasil Maduro Robusto

The Villiger Do Brasil Maduro Robusto showcases some of the best qualities of Brazilian tobacco. Flavors ranged from sweetness, cedar, creaminess, plum, fig, leather and earth. The strength of the cigar seemed to settle around the medium mark. I would light up another Do Brasil Maduro again, as I enjoyed the smoking experience.

Team Cigar Review: Casa Cuevas Maduro Toro

Team Cigar Review: Casa Cuevas Maduro Toro

The Casa Cuevas Maduro Toro had a nice start with a good combination of flavors, but from the second third, when the floral note dropped out, the profile became average the rest of the way. The chalkiness from this maduro isn't something I'm the biggest fan of, but it wasn't as off putting as some other maduro wrapped blends.

Cigar News: PCA Cancels the 2020 Trade Show

Team Cigar Review: Punch Chop Suey

Team Cigar Review: Punch Chop Suey

For the outstanding price point of sub $6, the Punch Chop Suey delivers a punch of flavors. Nice flavors of King's Hawaiian sweet bread, vanilla, minerals, cedar, black pepper in which some cigars that are 2 to 2.5x the price point can't match up to. It's only Q1 but I may have already found the value cigar of the year.
