Team Cigar Review: The Cigar Culture Culture Blend No. 3

Team Cigar Review: The Cigar Culture Culture Blend No. 3

The Cigar Culture Culture Blend No. 3 is a fun cigar and has an enjoyable flavor profile. While I found it cool that they disclosed the tobacco in the blend, and the crop vintage, I felt they tried to do too much. The flavor profile touches on a lot of areas, but it never establishes roots.

Team Cigar Review: Fonseca by My Father Cedros

Team Cigar Review: Fonseca by My Father Cedros

I really enjoyed the Fonseca by My Father Cedros and I think it is the best release to come out of the factory in a long time. The flavor profile was complex and I thought the finish was brilliant. There is transitioning and depth, and at no point did the strength and body take over from the flavors. Really a lovely blend and an important Nicaraguan puro for the company.

Team Cigar Review: La Aurora 107 Nicaragua Robusto

Team Cigar Review: La Aurora 107 Nicaragua Robusto

The La Aurora 107 Nicaragua Robusto is a perfectly constructed cigar that is balanced in terms of strength and body while delivering complex flavors throughout. It is a great Nicaraguan puro for the company and one of the better Nicaraguan puros this year.

Team Cigar Review: Falto La Pureza

Team Cigar Review: Falto La Pureza

The Falto La Pureza is a lovely cigar and a great vitola. There is balance with the blend and complexity and transitioning. Very approachable, the flavor profile is perfect for morning, afternoon or evening. They smoke well now, but I believe they will age great. A lovely blend that was enjoyable from start to finish.

Team Cigar Review: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Sobremesa Brûlée Blue

Team Cigar Review: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Sobremesa Brûlée Blue

The Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Sobremesa Brûlée Blue is a good cigar that has amazing construction and great flavors. The cigar is complex and balanced and it keeps that solid medium body and strength profile from beginning to end. It is much better than the original Brûlée release and the vitola offering is better as well.

Team Cigar Review: Esteban Carreras Cashmere Boolit

Team Cigar Review: Esteban Carreras Cashmere Boolit

The Esteban Carreras Cashmere Boolit is a solid Connecticut and the pricing makes it very appealing. It is not a Connecticut I would definitely gravitate to if I had options, but I would be happy with selecting this if my options were limited.

Team Cigar Review: Gurkha San Miguel Toro

The Gurkha San Miguel Toro was an average cigar from start to finish. It produced an AGANORSA flavor that you find with some of the lower end offerings. This wasn't a cigar composed with the best AGANORSA tobacco. It was earthy with some damp wood and pepper spice. Medium-full throughout. Nothing really to write home about and expand on.

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Special 53 Capa Dominicana

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Special 53 Capa Dominicana

In the giant scheme of things, the Davidoff Special 53 Capa Dominicana is a good cigar. The perfecto smokes wonderfully and it produces flavors of cocoa, spices, coffee and wood. As a limited, special, and even Davidoff release, it is justified in saying the cigar is disappointing. I was hoping for a little bit more in the flavor department and that Davidoff could show an even better Dominican puro than they have released in the past.

Team Cigar Review: AVO Classic Maduro No. 2

Team Cigar Review: AVO Classic Maduro No. 2

The AVO Classic Maduro No. 2, while not new, is a great re-release for 2020. The blend is balanced and approachable. Any cigar smoker would enjoy it, it just depends on the time of day. This is a morning and evening maduro in my opinion and a great Connecticut Broadleaf offering from AVO. I loved the cocoa, coffee, cream and cereal notes.

Team Cigar Review: 601 La Bomba Warhead VI

Team Cigar Review: 601 La Bomba Warhead VI

The 601 La Bomba Warhead VI is a really enjoyable figurado and it delivers solid flavors with a nice strength and body level. This is a cigar that will speak to those who are looking for dark and rich flavors with a nice strength and body level. I'm not sure if I would age them, and I say that because I think age will take away from the qualities that make it great now.
