Team Cigar Review: Cohiba Royale Toro Royale

Team Cigar Review: Cohiba Royale Toro Royale

I loved the flavor profile on the Cohiba Royale Toro Royale and Cohiba has been making some great cigars lately. They're expensive, but tasty. It is possible that Cohiba finally made a cigar worth the price, but its past has hurt in justifying pricier Cohibas.

Team Cigar Review: Punch Knuckle Buster Habano Toro

Team Cigar Review: Punch Knuckle Buster Habano Toro

I was completely shocked by the Punch Knuckle Buster Habano Toro. The flavor profile delivered was unique and complex. I did not expect any of this from the cigar, and I wasn't expecting a profile of this nature from Punch. The flavor combination was very enjoyable and one that I have not come across that often in my years of smoking. On top of that, the price is right for this cigar.

Personal Cigar Review: AJ Fernandez Bellas Artes Maduro Toro

Personal Cigar Review: AJ Fernandez Bellas Artes Maduro Toro

The AJ Fernandez Bellas Artes Maduro Toro was a solid smoke and a cigar that fit into some classic stereotypes. It was a Maduro that was dark, rich and strong. The cigar smoked at a full level from beginning to end and the flavors paired perfectly with the body and strength. Finished with beautiful artwork on the bands, this is a great release for AJ.

Team Cigar Review: Camacho Distillery Edition Connecticut Toro

Team Cigar Review: Camacho Distillery Edition Connecticut Toro

The Camacho Distillery Edition Connecticut Toro is a superior blend to the original Camacho Connecticut. The tobacco that was aged in barrels brought more life to the cigar and added some complexity to the overall blend. I was pleasantly surprised by the blend and would definitely pick these up again in the future.

Personal Cigar Review: Tatuaje Gran Cojonú Series A

Personal Cigar Review: Tatuaje Gran Cojonú Series A

The Tatuaje Gran Cojonú Series A is an intense cigar that has body and strength. The notes of cinnamon, pepper and chocolate pair well throughout, and the currant and raisin notes at the start really add for a great opening. It has been a while since I smoked a Cojonú, but this delivers what the line is all about.

Team Cigar Review: Casa Cuevas Cuevas Reserva Maduro Toro

Team Cigar Review: Casa Cuevas Cuevas Reserva Maduro Toro

The Casa Cuevas Cuevas Reserva Maduro Toro is fantastic and shows great spice, stone fruit and dark chocolate notes. It is complex and smokes at a great medium-full level from start to finish. The construction was dead on and with that, the draw was fantastic. You will not be disappointed with the blend.

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff of Geneva 25th Anniversary

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff of Geneva 25th Anniversary

The Davidoff of Geneva 25th Anniversary is a fantastic blend and it had depth and complexity throughout. It is an elegant Dominican puro and my favorite use of the Yamasa wrapper to date. The size really works with the blend and I like this offering in a large format.

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Undercrown Maduro Corona Pequeña

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Undercrown Maduro Corona Pequeña

Smoking the Drew Estate Undercrown Maduro Corona Pequeña has resurrected my interest in the brand, and I will definitely be smoking some of the original vitolas the next time I go to the shop. This is a terrific small cigar and great for when you don't have much smoking time. There is a lot of flavor in the cigar and the second third is magnificent.

Team Cigar Review: HVC 500 Years Anniversary

Team Cigar Review: HVC 500 Years Anniversary

I was incredibly pleased with the HVC 500 Years Anniversary and would consider it one of their best cigars. In some ways, he truly created a cigar that honors Havana. With wonderful packaging and aging potential, this is a cigar to buy boxes of to smoke now and age.

Team Cigar Review: Warzone Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Warzone Robusto

The Warzone Robusto is a very good cigar and a great release for Espinosa and General Cigar. I think it shows the talent in the blending for Espinosa and what they could do with more tobacco in their hands. I have always said that I would love to see the company release something very different, and this is it. For General, this is one of the best cigars they have been involved in for some time.
