Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje Avion Tuxtla

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje Avion Tuxtla

I found the Tatuaje Avion Tuxtla to be the most enjoyable of the Tuxtla offerings. With that, a really good Mexican offering overall. Brought me back to all the past Avions I have smoked, which was enjoyable as well. A good experience. Balanced cigar with great construction and draw. Enjoyable flavor profile. Nice notes of cocoa, espresso, earth and leather.

Team Cigar Review: Crowned Heads Le Carême Belicosos Finos 2022 LE

This Crowned Heads Le Carême Belicosos Finos 2022 LE was a fantastic belicoso. Great flavors of rich earth, strong spices, sweetness, mocha and espresso. Great evening cigar. Would highly recommend, smoke again and would love to age. Fantastic Connecticut Broadleaf.

Team Cigar Review: Ferio Tego Timeless TAA 2022

Team Cigar Review: Ferio Tego Timeless TAA 2022

I know this blend is like the TAA release from 2020, and I thought highly of that release, so it is not a surprise this Ferio Tego Timeless TAA 2022 did well for me. I enjoyed the flavors of cocoa, leather, wood and sweet spices throughout. Burn was not great, which was surprising, but I could have just had that cigar. Nice strength and body. If this becomes an annual TAA blend, I will buy it every year.

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Limited Edition 2022 Gran Toro

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Limited Edition 2022 Gran Toro

While the Davidoff Limited Edition 2022 Gran Toro performed well and I thought solid flavors were delivered, I don’t think the blend did a great job of capturing the three “Black Label” brands. With that, there was nothing wowing to this cigar that justified the limited title and high price. Balanced cigar with a nice increase in strength and body. Very well constructed. Came off as a less Brazilian Davidoff Escurio.

Team Cigar Review: Warped Companion de Warped

Team Cigar Review: Warped Companion de Warped

I really enjoyed the Warped Companion de Warped. The profile grabbed my attention throughout, and I liked how it went back and forth between sweet and spicy. The sweet fruit bread, coffee and cocoa qualities were great. It had a nice strength and body level as well. Burn was not as good as I would have liked, but overall, not a major issue. A nice blend that caught me by surprise.

Team Cigar Review: Cohiba Serie M Corona Gorda

Team Cigar Review: Cohiba Serie M Corona Gorda

The Cohiba Serie M Corona Gorda is a great cigar, and a nice follow up to the initial release. It is close in quality and flavors to the original, and different in it's own way because of the vitola. I felt this offering was slightly more intense, with flavors and strength, and I am not surprised based off the smaller ring gauge.

Team Cigar Review: CAO Pilón Añejo Robusto

Team Cigar Review: CAO Pilón Añejo Robusto

I don’t know what I am doing here, but I dug this CAO Pilón Añejo Robusto! Some cool flavors here and there with a solid core of cocoa, leather, floral and herbal qualities. Great construction! Final third was not as good as the first two thirds, but overall, I thought this was a good cigar.

Team Cigar Review: Jas Sum Kral Munchies Rocky Road

Team Cigar Review: Jas Sum Kral Munchies Rocky Road

If you are looking to smoke a cigar that tastes like rocky road ice cream, then this Jas Sum Kral Munchies Rocky Road delivers that. It is stronger in flavor in the beginning, mellowing out in the end, but always delivering that rocky road flavor profile. Medium in strength and body throughout, you can really smoke this cigar in the morning or evening.

Team Cigar Review: VegaFina Year of the Tiger 2022

Team Cigar Review: VegaFina Year of the Tiger 2022

I enjoyed the VegaFina Year of the Tiger 2022. I thought the first two thirds were good, and the cigar would have been much better if it had a final third like the first. Still, a good cigar overall. Really good price! I liked the blend and the body and strength that came with that. Never too much, and in some ways scaled back while still having some flavors.

Team Cigar Review: Casa 1910 Cuchillo Parado

Team Cigar Review: Casa 1910 Cuchillo Parado

This Casa 1910 Cuchillo Parado was a really fun smoking experience, and I enjoyed the blend thoroughly as well. I loved the complexities and profile delivered. The body and strength were perfect with the blend, and the whole profile had this lightness. It never felt to be too much. Balanced and not overwhelming.
