Joya de Nicaragua Cinco de Cinco Robusto Gordo

Team Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua Cinco de Cinco Robusto Gordo

I enjoyed the Joya de Nicaragua Cinco de Cinco Robusto Gordo, and have enjoyed all the releases in the Obras Maestras portfolio. I would not say this is my favorite, but it is definitely a nice Mexican release and solid medium-full maduro offering. One of the better Mexican releases of late as well. I do appreciate that Joya has kept things different with each of these releases. I look forward to 60 years.

Tatuaje 20th EL22

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje 20th EL22

The Tatuaje 20th EL22 is a lovely cigar that I look forward to smoking again when it is warmer. Great summer cigar. Balanced with a nice selection of flavors, but not over the top. Medium in strength and body. Not overly complex, or showing a ton of transitioning, but a nice flavor profile throughout.

Ferio Tego Summa Corona Gorda

Team Cigar Review: Ferio Tego Summa Corona Gorda

I really enjoyed the Ferio Tego Summa Corona Gorda and I would love to smoke it in all of the different vitola offerings. I would definitely buy a box of these, given they are in boxes of ten, and I love the profile as well. This is a balanced cigar with an enjoyable flavor profile that is on the dryer side, but still complex. Nice medium strength and body level. Solid construction as well. Loved the diversity of tobacco in the blend.

Tatuaje 20th Anniversary Grande Merveille

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje 20th Anniversary Grande Merveille

The Tatuaje 20th Anniversary Grande Merveille is a fantastic release and one of the best Nicaraguan releases from Tatuaje in some time. Maybe even My Father as well. The blend was complex and grabbed my attention throughout. It was balanced while still delivering a nice strength and body level.

Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Muestra de Saka Krakatoa

Team Cigar Review: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Muestra de Saka Krakatoa

The Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Muestra de Saka Krakatoa is a fantastic release and I love the depth, complexity and transitioning throughout. The flavors really play off one another and it has a nice strength and body level. The coffee, spices and dark chocolate were fantastic, and the draw and burn made for an easy smoking experience. Would love to smoke this all fall and winter.

Montecristo FSG Toro

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo FSG Toro

I liked the Montecristo FSG Toro. I found it to be a balanced cigar with an enjoyable flavor profile. A profile to my liking at least. It delivered that FSG quality, but it was not too much with strength. The dry earth and mineral spices were really enjoyable throughout. Definitely a cigar I would come back to in the future.

Black Label Trading Company Bishops Blend Novemdiales Toro

Team Cigar Review: Black Label Trading Company Bishops Blend Novemdiales Toro

I loved the Black Label Trading Company Bishops Blend Novemdiales Toro. It's my favorite Bishops Blend to date, and it shows the growth of James Brown as a blender. His blends are still medium-full to full in strength and body, but there is more complexity and balance in the blends. A balanced, flavorful and full cigar.

Flor de D’Crossier Seleccion Escogida Lumina Corona Gorda

Team Cigar Review: Flor de D’Crossier Seleccion Escogida Lumina Corona Gorda

It's been a minute with Flor de D’Crossier, but this Flor de D’Crossier Seleccion Escogida Lumina Corona Gorda was a good stick. Price is fantastic on this balanced blend. The flavors were there as well and a nice level of complexity was delivered. Great vitola as well with awesome construction.

La Aurora 120th Anniversary Churchill

Team Cigar Review: La Aurora 120th Anniversary Churchill

I enjoyed the La Aurora 120th Anniversary Churchill, and I thought it was a solid blend, but I was hoping for more complexity, depth and transitioning. Nice core flavor profile, really nice, but it needed more to pop and really celebrate 120 years. Cigar seemed young as well.

Fable Two Things

Team Cigar Review: Fable Two Things

I enjoyed the Fable Two Things. I thought it was a really good barber pole. Nice flavor profile from start to finish. Great construction as well. Nice blend of Honduran and Nicaraguan tobacco. Connecticut in there as well with the wrapper. I've got more than two nice things to say about this creative piece of work.
