The Balmoral Anejo XO Nicaragua Gran Toro is a complex blend that showed transitioning from start to finish and more importantly, balanced. Would highly recommend this cigar to any smoker out there. A lovely blend that can be enjoyed any time of day.

Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Connecticut Robusto

Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Connecticut Robusto

I liked the JRE Aladino Connecticut Robusto and thought it was a nice addition to the Aladino brand. I was not blown away by it, and would not say it is a Connecticut that you have to search out, but it is a solid release. With that being said, well priced and a nice smoking experience.

Team Cigar Review: Alec Bradley Black Market Filthy Hooligan Shamrock 2020

Team Cigar Review: Alec Bradley Black Market Filthy Hooligan Shamrock 2020

The Alec Bradley Black Market Filthy Hooligan Shamrock 2020 is a fun cigar and at the same time educational. You can pick up on the three wrappers throughout the entire smoking experience. You can see their impact. I would keep this as a limited seasonal release, but I would separate the cigar from Black Market and Filthy Hooligan. It belongs in it's own category.

Team Cigar Review: Cohiba Spectre CS19

Team Cigar Review: Cohiba Spectre CS19

Overall, the Cohiba Spectre CS19 is a good cigar. I love the dark flavor profiles that are delivered and they go well with the strength and body level. There was a nice complexity present with the cigar, depth as well, and the transitioning was solid throughout.

Team Cigar Review: Foundation Menelik

Team Cigar Review: Foundation Menelik

The Foundation Menelik is a solid release and it is a great size. I think if you are looking for a quality Mexican offering with great AGANORSA Nicaraguan fillers, you will be pleased with the cigar. It may not be game changing, but it is another solid Mexican release to the market.

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo Espada Oscuro Guard

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo Espada Oscuro Guard

Like a lot of releases from 2019, the Montecristo Espada Oscuro Guard started out really well and slowly went downhill. A solid Montecristo, nothing to write home about, but a nice addition to a brand that already has way too many releases.

Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Corojo Reserva Toro

The JRE Aladino Corojo Reserva Toro is simply fantastic and a great addition to the Corojo Reserva line. It offers those great flavors from the Robusto in a larger format and a format that really speaks to the American market. The cigar has complexity and depth from start to finish and the transitioning is great. This cigar is hard to beat!

Team Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua Número Uno L’Ambassadeur

The Joya de Nicaragua Número Uno L'Ambassadeur is simply fantastic. It is a tremendous Connecticut release and is complex from beginning to end. There is great transitioning taking place and it is always balanced. Releasing this cigar for the general cigar smoking world was a brilliant move by the company and I know I will turn to it quite frequently as my cigar of choice.

Team Cigar Review: Casa Cuevas Cuevas Reserva Natural Toro

Team Cigar Review: Casa Cuevas Cuevas Reserva Natural Toro

The Casa Cuevas Cuevas Reserva Natural Toro is a beautiful Connecticut that delivered complex flavors with depth from start to finish. There was transitioning and each third was unique. The balance between flavors, body and strength was great and the construction and draw were spot on.
