Team Cigar Review: San Pedro de Macorís Brazil Robusto

Team Cigar Review: San Pedro de Macorís Brazil Robusto

There are a couple ways to look at the San Pedro de Macorís Brazil Robusto in my opinion. If you look at it from the perspective of a cigar that is under $6.00, this cigar is fantastic. For the money spent, you are getting a great cigar. If you look at it as a cigar without taking price into account, it is a solid smoke but nothing impressive. It has an enjoyable flavor profile, but it lacks a lot of transitioning and complexity.

Team Cigar Review: Señorial 65th Anniversary

I was a fan of the Señorial 65th Anniversary when it first came out five years ago and I have enjoyed them over the years as well. In some ways, the cigar does not seem to age to me. It is one of those cigars that smokes very similar to how it did five years ago. I keep thinking the cigar is going to be drastically different in another six months, but it isn't.

Team Cigar Review: Bombay Tobak MQBA Diadem

Diademas are special vitolas, so you better have a good blend when all is said and done. The Bombay Tobak MQBA Diadem may not be the type of cigar that a more seasoned smoker looks for, or one who wants more body and strength, but I found it really enjoyable. A very elegant introductory cigar.

Team Cigar Review: Winston Churchill Limited Edition 2019 Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Winston Churchill Limited Edition 2019 Robusto

The Winston Churchill Limited Edition 2019 Robusto is a powerful cigar and possibly the strongest Davidoff release I have smoked. It is a complex and multi-national blend which really delivers the flavors of all the tobacco involved. The transitioning between each third was fantastic and the flavors present from start to finish were stunning.

Personal Cigar Review: Plasencia Alma Fuerte Robustus

Personal Cigar Review: Plasencia Alma Fuerte Robustus

The Plasencia Alma Fuerte Robustus is quite inviting. I don't find the strength to be as much as some do with this line, but the body is definitely present and with that is a great amount of flavors. Complex with some awesome transitioning and depth throughout, the cigar will not disappoint.

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo Dantés Edición Limitada 2016

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo Dantés Edición Limitada 2016

The Montecristo Dantés Edición Limitada 2016 is not a Habanos I would gravitate to more often than not, I prefer regular production Montecristo offerings to this, but a very solid release. I would recommend this Habanos to those who have the opportunity to purchase some, and I think many would find that they smoke well in a couple years. I look forward to see how it smokes in years to come.

Team Cigar Review: Fernandez Torrens 4ta Década Barrilito Leyenda

I was blown away by the Fernandez Torrens 4ta Década Barrilito Leyenda and found it to not only be a fantastic Dominican puro, but a great offering as a cigar overall. If I look back on the Dominican puros I have had throughout my smoke life, this in the top five. Amazing!
