San Cristobal Revelation Legend

Personal Cigar Review: San Cristobal Revelation Legend

The San Cristobal Revelation Legend had a nice start, with a good combination of flavors and then dropped a level in each third as the profile lost it's vibrancy and then the char and wood bitterness joined in. I was hoping the chocolate fudge aroma from the wrapper pre-light was indicating a fair amount of chocolate in the profile, but it was very short lived. Overall, not a cigar I'd see myself coming back to.

Perdomo 30th Anniversary Connecticut Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Perdomo 30th Anniversary Connecticut Robusto

The Perdomo 30th Anniversary Connecticut Robusto had a nice flavor profile through the first two thirds with good balance and flavor delivery. The final third dropped a level as some wood bitterness joined in and the black pepper became very light. This is a pretty nice Connecticut shade offering and definitely a step up from the Maduro for me. The price point is attractive and I'd be interested in trying some of the other vitolas.

Gurkha 35th Anniversary Toro

Personal Cigar Review: Gurkha 35th Anniversary Toro

The Gurkha 35th Anniversary Toro had an average flavor profile throughout. The stale, dry, toasted cedar was the main player and didn't really set a tone for an exciting smoking experience. I appreciate the low cost for an anniversary cigar, but it just didn't deliver on flavor, and that's what I'm here for. I don't see returning to this cigar.

Trinidad Espiritu No. 3 Toro

Personal Cigar Review: Trinidad Espiritu No. 3 Toro

The Trinidad Espiritu No. 3 Toro started with melt your face off black pepper, but mellowed through the first third and was pretty average through the first two thirds. The final third took a step down as the toasted cedar became heavy and some wood bitterness joined in. Not a cigar I'd likely come back to as the flavor profile didn't show much balance or excitement.
