Personal Cigar Review: Camacho Liberty 2005 Throwback

Personal Cigar Review: Camacho Liberty 2005 Throwback

I was not impressed with the Camacho Liberty 2005 Throwback. It lacked a flavor profile that showed balance and diversity. While there was some transitioning from when the ring gauge increased and decreased, it did not deliver a complex flavor profile that could have flourished with the changes of the ring gauge from start to finish.

Team Cigar Review: Camacho Coyolar Super Toro

Team Cigar Review: Camacho Coyolar Super Toro

In remembering how the original Coyolar smoked, I would say this cigar is not as strong as that but it has more flavors than the original. Of all the Camacho offerings that have been re-released/modified since Davidoff took over, this is the closest to what the old Camacho Coyolar smoked like. A solid cigar that will do well with the old Camacho fans that loved the strong Honduran smokes.

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Selección 702 Limited Edition

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Selección 702 Limited Edition

The Davidoff Selección 702 Limited Edition is an enjoyable cigar with a very nice flavor profile from start to finish. This is a flavor focused cigar, it's not about the strength or body, and while there is not a lot of transitioning from start to finish there is some transitioning present.

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Gusto

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Gusto

The Davidoff Gusto delivers what I love about Ecuadorian Sumatra offerings and while it is limited and pricey, it is deserving on all fronts. If you have not yet smoked them, and you can get them, I highly recommend you pick them up. If there were more Ecuadorian Sumatra offerings on the market like this, I would be a happy man!

Personal Cigar Review: Camacho Candela

Personal Cigar Review: Camacho Candela

The Camacho Candela delivers those candela qualities while at the same time shows some peppery and earthy qualities. It had guts, and that is what you need with a candela wrapper to make it successful.

Personal Cigar Review: La Instructora Perfection Invicto

Personal Cigar Review: La Instructora Perfection Invicto

The La Instructora Perfection Invicto is a fun size that gives the smoker the experience to enjoy all the tobaccos in the blend and see the impact that they have on the cigar with a different ring gauge. If you want to know what quality Dominican Criollo '98 and Dominican Piloto Cubano taste like, this is a cigar that will give you just that.

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff The Master Selection 2008

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff The Master Selection 2008

The Davidoff The Master Selection 2008 smokes well now and will smoke only better with age. It has a great flavor profile that changes throughout and while the flavors are core flavors in the sense that they are always present, it is their dominance which changes and that is always a fun experience.

Team Cigar Review: HVC Cerro Maduro Robusto

Team Cigar Review: HVC Cerro Maduro Robusto

If the cigar had smoked like it did in the second third throughout, this cigar would be fantastic and one of the best maduro offerings from the factory since the Illusione Pactum.

Personal Cigar Review: Plasencia Alma del Campo Guajiro

Personal Cigar Review: Plasencia Alma del Campo Guajiro

This sophomore release from Plasencia is the best cigar they have released year to date. The flavor profile is complex with a nice bit of depth and it has this great medium-full body and strength level throughout. Why the company did not have their own brand years ago baffles me, but I am glad they are here now.

Team Cigar Review: Camacho Nicaraguan Barrel Aged Toro

Team Cigar Review: Camacho Nicaraguan Barrel Aged Toro

In some samples, the rum barrels are more pronounced and those tend to be sweeter and creamier, but even samples which are less pronounced still deliver that flavor at a softer, less sweet level. This is really an enjoyable cigar that you need to spend some time on.
