Team Cigar Review: Espinosa Las 6 Provincias LHB

Team Cigar Review: Espinosa Las 6 Provincias LHB

The Espinosa Las 6 Provincias LHB is yet another example of the stronger, spicier side of Espinosa's offerings. For me, this is a post (big) dinner smoke as the spice would be better complimented after such. If you enjoy the "typical" Espinosa offering, you will no doubt enjoy this.

Team Cigar Review: MLB Cigar Ventures David P. Ehrlich PLM Series Toro

Team Cigar Review: David P. Ehrlich PLM Series Toro

Overall, I enjoyed the David P. Ehrlich PLM Series Toro. At times, the profile became a bit too earth driven with its dirt/soil, leather and mineral notes. But, there was enough cream and citrus to not make it overly earth dominant. I recommend this to someone that enjoys a heavier profile.

Team Cigar Review: Jas Sum Kral Toothpicks 2.0 Mexican San Andrés

Team Cigar Review: Jas Sum Kral Toothpicks 2.0 Mexican San Andrés

The Jas Sum Kral Toothpicks 2.0 Mexican San Andrés was a good and consistent treat. The amount of body (think whole milk) was pretty unreal. The flavors to match the body was fitting, providing a great mixture of cream, butter, milk candy and gradual increase in cedar spice. For $6 it's a no brainer, and I see this scoring high on our year end value and budget listing.

Team Cigar Review: Caldwell Eastern Standard Habano Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Caldwell Eastern Standard Habano Robusto

The Caldwell Eastern Standard Habano Robusto is quite a departure from the Caldwell style of cigars that I know. While I can be appreciative of this style of cigar, it's not really my cup of tea. In conclusion, if you ever complained about Caldwell cigars being "too light" or "not enough spice," bitch no more.

Team Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua JOYA Silver Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua JOYA Silver Robusto

A great mixture of sweet and spicy all wrapped up in an attractive value of a $7 cigar. Within the last two years or so of Joya's new releases, they have proven that they just don't miss. This cigar is a winner.

Team Cigar Review: Illusione OneOff Corona

Team Cigar Review: Illusione OneOff Corona

The Illusione OneOff Corona was an overall good tasting profile but it tasted young. Not quite ready yet, but this will be something great to have a box of to smoke every few months to gauge its changing potential.

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Golf Scorecard Edition 2016

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Golf Scorecard Edition 2016

The Davidoff Golf Scorecard Edition 2016 is another good example of the company showing off their good tobacco and blending capabilities focusing on the milder strength, full flavor recipe. Although the list of flavors I tasted wasn't exhaustive (black pepper, cedar, buttery cream, hay), the large format cigar kept my interest and enjoyment throughout the entire time.

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff The Master Selection 2007

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff The Master Selection 2007

This being the third Davidoff Master Selection reviewed (first two being 2008 and 2010), the way I see it (so far) is, all the Master Selection series deliver a supreme level of nuances, transitions and fairly complex flavors. This 2007 had moments of greatness, especially halfway through, but it is just as good as the 2008. A good cigar to celebrate with if budget allows.

Team Cigar Review: Foundation The Wise Man Maduro Churchill

Team Cigar Review: Foundation The Wise Man Maduro Churchill

In the story of the Foundation The Wise Man Maduro Churchill, the cigar showed no signs of being sharp or being rough around the edges. Flavors of Mexican hot chocolate powder, cedar and bread worked very well together, keeping my attention for the entire, longer smoke. The strength does sneak up, as by the end of the cigar, sugar was required.
