Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje Anarchy KAOS

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje Anarchy KAOS

The Tatuaje Anarchy KAOS is a cigar that started out great and slowly deteriorated. That first third was great, giving way to sweetened condensed milk, roasted peanuts, zesty minerality, subtle red pepper spice and cedar. But as the cigar progressed, the sweetness dramatically dropped, and eventually led to undesirable char and burnt notes. I'd like to revisit the cigar in 5 to 6 months to see if the cigar will smooth out its rougher edges. But as of now, it's a soft recommend.

The La Aurora TAA Exclusivo represents the type of quality that all TAA cigars should deliver. A complex assortment of flavors, with each third delivering a consistently good experience, with construction to match. I would happily smoke more of these at the earliest opportunity.

Team Cigar Review: Córdoba & Morales Finca Santa Fe FSG Toro

The Córdoba & Morales Finca Santa Fe FSG Toro was a consistently good experience from start to finish, illustrating some of the best aspects of Florida Sun Grown tobacco. The list of flavors included hay, cedar, baking spices, vegetal, cocoa, mustiness, sour citrus and musty cedar. I'm lookong forward to smoking more Finca Santa Fe FSGs in the near future. The draw and construction were both perfect.
