Team Cigar Review: Camacho Factory Unleashed

Team Cigar Review: Camacho Factory Unleashed

While the Camacho Factory Unleashed does not smoke like a Camacho, it does show some qualities of blends coming out of their Honduran factory. You can get the Honduran, Dominican, Nicaraguan and Ecuadorian tobacco flavors. Good cigar, though not quite sure it does well as a Camacho. It’s not really a Camacho, AVO or Davidoff.

Team Cigar Review: E.P. Carrillo Short Run Retro 2021 Short Play

Team Cigar Review: E.P. Carrillo Short Run Retro 2021 Short Play

This was a good cigar, and it was nice to see a blend like this from E.P. Carrillo again. The E.P. Carrillo Short Run Retro 2021 Short Play had nice flavors of spices, earth, wood, and the overall barnyard qualities were fantastic. It started off a little bit stronger than it finished, but I like when a cigar does that. Really was great to smoke an E.P. Carrillo Short Run offering with the original bands.

Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Corojo Reserva Figurado

Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Corojo Reserva Figurado

I really enjoyed the JRE Aladino Corojo Reserva Figurado. It is a great blend that produces lovely flavors from beginning to end. Wonderful balance and nice strength and body. For those of you who hate large ring gauges, you will not mind the larger ring gauge with the Toro or the Figurado. It is a line, that when it's in the right vitola, produces an amazing Honduran puro.

Team Cigar Review: Crowned Heads The Lost Angel TAA 2021

Team Cigar Review: Crowned Heads The Lost Angel TAA 2021

The Crowned Heads The Lost Angel TAA 2021 did a good job of balancing out Mexican San Andres and Brazilian Mata Fina, while having them be the focus of the blend and delivering their positive qualities. The cigar had a nice balance between sweet and spicy, and the earth presence was perfect as well. With that, you can’t go wrong with a matte black band. It just looks awesome.

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje Fausto The Old Man and the C Lancero

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje Fausto The Old Man and the C Lancero

The Tatuaje Fausto The Old Man and the C Lancero is a solid lancero and my experience when I was done was that this was not as strong as the original Fausto, but more complex overall as a blend. The flavors were superior. There was balance and substance with this cigar. Really well made cigar.

Team Cigar Review: Diesel Crucible

Team Cigar Review: Diesel Crucible

The Diesel Crucible is a solid cigar and a strong one at that. It is not my cup of tea, due to the strength, but it is right in line with the Diesel brand and a cigar I could enjoy from time to time. This is an evening cigar for me.

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Undercrown 10 Toro

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Undercrown 10 Toro

The Drew Estate Undercrown 10 Toro was a good cigar. It was a little one dimensional, and a little heavy on the earth, but there were some flavors that popped out throughout. I would have liked for a stronger finish, and I think that would have made a difference in the cigar. I am interested in smoking the blend in a smaller vitola offering, and really seeing how it smokes all around.

Team Cigar Review: Macanudo Inspirado Brazilian Shade Toro

Team Cigar Review: Macanudo Inspirado Brazilian Shade Toro

The Macanudo Inspirado Brazilian Shade Toro was a fun cigar with a nice flavor profile. Not overly complex, it was balanced throughout. I loved the coffee, cream and lemongrass qualities throughout. A solid medium in strength and body, it is a cigar that many could enjoy at any time of day. Job well done!

Team Cigar Review: AVO Classic Belicoso

Team Cigar Review: AVO Classic Belicoso

I am not one of those guys that is crazy about the Avo Classic line. However, the AVO Classic Belicoso is lightyears better than the other vitolas in the line and I would revisit quite frequently. There is complexity, depth and transitioning throughout. Great to see them bring back this cigar, even if it is for a short time.

Team Cigar Review: Cohiba Serie M

Team Cigar Review: Cohiba Serie M

The Cohiba Serie M is the Cohiba I have been seeking for 10 plus years. This is almost a continuation of the old-school, and good La Palina Goldie offerings, but with a twist. The cigar delivered those amazing El Titan flavors, and it showed beautiful harmony between Nicaraguan and Dominican tobacco. There was complexity, depth and transitioning throughout. Packaging was amazing. Great cigar!
