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.

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.

Personal Cigar Review: La Palina Goldie Toro

Personal Cigar Review: La Palina Goldie Toro

This was a solid Goldie and I think it will do well with consumers, mostly because of the size, but it is not my favorite of the Goldies. With time, the flavors will develop in the second and final third, knock on wood, and that will help the cigar in terms of flavors. With that being said, the draw and construction were great and a majority of cigar smokers will truly enjoy.

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff The Master Selection 2013

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff The Master Selection 2013

There is depth from start to finish, transitioning throughout and it never lacked the complexity that you expect from an ultra-premium cigar. The balance between the flavors is fantastic and the changing pepper and spice notes is simply great.

Personal Cigar Review: Caldwell Anastasia Opera

Personal Cigar Review: Caldwell Anastasia Opera

This is possibly one of the best Caldwell releases I have had, and the blend smokes well throughout the line. It is a blend that needs some time aging though and I believe it smokes better after being stored at a lower humidity level.

Personal Cigar Review: Camacho Ecuador BXP Toro

Personal Cigar Review: Camacho Ecuador BXP Toro

It had a nice full body and strength quality for most of the cigar, and had a smooth finish which made you want another one right afterwards. Not my favorite Camacho, but a cigar worth trying.

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Nicaragua 6x60

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Nicaragua 6×60

If you are a big ring gauge fan and loved the line, I would highly recommend it. I smoke smaller ring gauge cigars, but if I am in the mood for a big cigar I would grab one of these. Lots of flavors, complex and balanced.
