Team Cigar Review: Aging Room Quattro F55M Vibrato

Team Cigar Review: Aging Room Quattro F55M Vibrato

Reviewing my flavor notes, I basically just wrote about cardboard and variations of spice (baking spices and black pepper spice). These notes were too boring, especially for such a large sized cigar. If the cigar had more complexities working off the bread, coffee and nuts, this would have greatly enhanced the flavor profile. But as it stands, just an average tasting cigar.

Team Cigar Review: HVC San Isidro Hermoso

Team Cigar Review: HVC San Isidro Hermoso

Medium-full strength, medium bodied, rich and full of flavors sums up the HVC San Isidro Hermoso. The oily mouthfeel gave way to a great array of flavors. The only downside is the pesky burn. But overall, a pleasure to smoke and will gladly purchase them with no regrets.

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Undercrown Sun Grown Corona

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Undercrown Sun Grown Corona

The Drew Estate Undercrown Sun Grown Corona is by far my favorite format in the line. Having smoked the Flying Pig, Toro and now the Corona, the Corona packs the most amount of punch in flavor intensities. The flavor intensities are also well matched by a stronger cigar.

Team Cigar Review: Diesel Grind Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Diesel Grind Robusto

This Diesel Grind Robusto was an average tasting experience for me. The underlying generic dry wood and cardboard/paper note was a bit monotonous. If you are a fan of AJ's blending style, this is a no brainer to pick up, especially at such a great attractive $6 price point. As for me, I will look towards other AJ offerings.

Team Cigar Review: Ventura Case Study 05 Toro

Team Cigar Review: Ventura Case Study 05 Toro

The more I smoke the Case Studies, the more I believe Ventura's marketing statement of selecting good cigars from various factories. The Ventura Case Study 05 was just plain and simply a good cigar showcasing sweetness, chocolate, earth and tapered spice. I would happily smoke more of these.

Team Cigar Review: Cavalier Geneve Black Series II Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Cavalier Geneve Black Series II Robusto

The Cavalier Geneve Black Series II Robusto was a pleasure to smoke. The baseline of the softly sweetened milky consistency paired with dry red pepper heat and cocoa was not only tasty but worked well in unison. Great offering from the guys at Cavalier of Geneva.

Team Cigar Review: Debonaire Daybreak Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Debonaire Daybreak Robusto

I find the Debonaire Daybreak Robusto to be a clean and nuanced flavor delivery. The notes although not overly complex, worked well together, giving an overall mild-medium body and strength, easy going flavor profile.
