Team Cigar Review: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Red Meat Lovers 2020

Team Cigar Review: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Red Meat Lovers 2020

I was pleased with this Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Red Meat Lovers 2020 and thought it showed depth and transitioning. This was a complex blend that showcased and benefitted from the tobaccos being used, wrapper to filler. This might be one my favorite Saka blends to come out of NACSA.

Team Cigar Review: Zino Platinum Crown Series Limited Edition 2020

Team Cigar Review: Zino Platinum Crown Series Limited Edition 2020

The Zino Platinum Crown Series Limited Edition 2020 was a nice cigar and another solid Zino release. It is not the best Zino I have smoked, but still a really good cigar. It is better than most, but slightly lacking when you look at Zino overall. Very nice flavors with good construction. I really liked the body and strength that came with the flavors.

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Year of the Ox

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Year of the Ox

If the Davidoff Year of the Ox smoked like it did in the first third throughout, it would have been amazing. One of the better zodiac releases in recent years, but still does not compare to some of the early smokes.

Team Cigar Review: Alec Bradley Project 40 Maduro 5.50

Team Cigar Review: Alec Bradley Project 40 Maduro 5.50

The Alec Bradley Project 40 Maduro 5.50 is a solid offering and more memorable to me than the original Project 40. It is a nice and enjoyable blend that is affordable and approachable as well. It is not overly complex, but it delivers a decent profile from start to finish.

Team Cigar Review: Warzone Short Churchill

Team Cigar Review: Warzone Short Churchill

I like the Warzone Short Churchill. I thought it was a fantastic size, it's the same size as the Caixa, and it provides a different flavor profile in my opinion from the original Warzone. I see the offering as being a little bit darker in terms of the earth and spice flavors, and the strength and body are up as well when compared to the original Warzone.

Team Cigar Review: Oliva Serie V Melanio Maduro Figurado 2020

Team Cigar Review: Oliva Serie V Melanio Maduro Figurado 2020

Overall, the Oliva Serie V Melanio Maduro Figurado 2020 is a good cigar. It is a nice Oliva and a solid Mexican San Andres offering. I don't think I would go crazy over the release, and I know Oliva has released better annual offerings, but a good cigar. Nice balance and flavors throughout.

Team Cigar Review: Dapper Desvalido Lonsdale

Team Cigar Review: Dapper Desvalido Lonsdale

The Dapper Desvalido Lonsdale is a good cigar and I believe with a little bit more age it will be very good. The complexity, depth and transitioning present in the blend was great. I loved the strength and body that was delivered, and the construction was top notch as well. Dapper Cigar Co. is a brand that to me continues to deliver quality blends and really enjoyable cigars. Well done!

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.
