Team Cigar Review: La Aroma de Cuba Pasion Corona Gorda

Team Cigar Review: La Aroma de Cuba Pasion Corona Gorda

I can’t remember the last La Aroma de Cuba that I enjoyed this much. What a great Nicaraguan puro. Balanced blend with enjoyable flavors from start to finish. Great construction as well. My Father has released two Nicaraguan puros recently that have caught my attention. I like what I am seeing. I want more! I will definitely be coming back to this La Aroma de Cuba Pasion Corona Gorda.

Team Cigar Review: Casa Magna Liga F Toro

Team Cigar Review: Casa Magna Liga F Toro

I enjoyed this Casa Magna Liga F Toro. I thought the flavor profile was on point in the first and second third, but it was Dominican. There may be some Nicaraguan tobacco in the blend, but this is a Dominican cigar. I am interested in trying other sizes. I can't compare it to the other Casa Magnas, probably because it has been so long since I smoked a Casa Magna, but I was pleased with so many aspects of this cigar.

Team Cigar Review: Dapper La Madrina Shade Belicoso

Team Cigar Review: Dapper La Madrina Shade Belicoso

From the second I lit up this Dapper La Madrina Shade Belicoso, I knew it was going to do extremely well. This is my cup of tea. It was balanced from start to finish with great flavors. This is a blend that speaks to smokers like myself. Pricing is fantastic, and so is packaging. I would buy these to smoke and age, and I would recommend them to anyone.

Team Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua Antaño Gran Reserva GT20

Team Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua Antaño Gran Reserva GT20

I enjoyed the Joya de Nicaragua Antaño Gran Reserva GT20 and the flavor profile delivered, but it lacked some complexity and depth throughout. I feel like there have been enough variations of the Antaño over the years that you can compare it somewhat to Fuente’s Opus X. This comes off as the Angel’s Share for the brand.

Team Cigar Review: ATL Magic

Team Cigar Review: ATL Magic

The ATL Magic was an average cigar, but enjoyable. It lost a little bit of that pop from the first third, but there was never this amazing start followed by a dramatic drop and awful finish. It was an average Mexican San Andres offering at a nice price point with great construction. It falls into that softer Mexican offering category on the market, and that is not typically my cup of tea.

Team Cigar Review: Cordoba & Morales Finca Santa Fe FSG Cameroon

Team Cigar Review: Cordoba & Morales Finca Santa Fe FSG Cameroon

I really enjoyed this blend. I thought it delivered some Cameroon and FSG qualities that I enjoy, but I believe the Cordoba & Morales Finca Santa Fe FSG Cameroon is young and needs more time to rest. I liked the balance between saltiness, sweetness and spice. The body and strength were perfect throughout, and the draw and burn were great.

Team Cigar Review: Supreme Tobacco Bohekio Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Supreme Tobacco Bohekio Robusto

I am honestly not sure where I am with the Supreme Tobacco Bohekio Robusto. I need to smoke more. There is something about the Haitian tobacco that is funky. It seems light in many ways. There was also this quality to the tobacco that I get with some Dominican tobacco, but more often Cuban tobacco. I find it with island tobacco and I dig it.

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje Fausto The Old Man and the C Culebra

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje Fausto The Old Man and the C Culebra

There is something redeeming about a unique cigar like the culebras smoking good. But the fact that the three cigars are quality cigars, and the fact that they happen to be culebras is amazing. I am sure there are plenty of cigar smokers out there that have never smoked a culebra, but with the Tatuaje Fausto The Old Man and the C Culebra, you are getting something of quality with fun presentation.

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Liga Privada H99 Toro

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Liga Privada H99 Toro

I enjoyed the Drew Estate Liga Privada H99 Toro because of the flavors delivered, but I don't think that this is a cigar for a lot of smokers. This is more fruity and lighter. When you think of wines that are very berry heavy or jammy, Malbec comes to mind, but this is more of a very strawberry Rosé. I know that sounds crazy, but that is the best way for me to describe the smoking experience. Funky smoke.

Team Cigar Review: Arturo Fuente Rare Pink Vintage 1960's Short Story

Team Cigar Review: Arturo Fuente Rare Pink Vintage 1960’s Short Story

I love the cause that goes with the Arturo Fuente Rare Pink Vintage 1960's Short Story, and I love the packaging, but I am not sold on the cigar. The blend has solid core flavors of citrus, cedar and pepper, but I was hoping for a little more. The wrapper is very dominant on the cigar, and it has a nice profile, but I think it needs to be balanced out some and the way to do that is by providing a larger offering.
