Personal Cigar Review: Serino Vintage 2012 A

Personal Cigar Review: Serino Vintage 2012 A

The Serino Vintage 2012 A had a good start with a nice combination of flavors that worked well together, but by the second third, the profile became less dynamic and finished out with a fair amount of char. This is a commitment to smoke, and with the profile being average from the second third on, I don't think it provides enough of a good time to warrant that commitment.

Team Cigar Review: Serino Wayfarer Corona Gorda

Team Cigar Review: Serino Wayfarer Corona Gorda

The Serino Wayfarer Corona Gorda was first and foremost all about flavor with strength as a second thought. Although tasty, the balance was thrown off at times such that it was too mineral forward, taking away from the other nuances and complexities. Nonetheless, this is a great new addition to Serino's portfolio and well worth checking out.

This is still the line that shines the brightest for H.R. to me, as other vitolas I have smoked have also been pretty good. I would have no problem with smoking this cigar again.

Being a claro shade, I was not expecting a medium-full strength cigar. But that may be good as it kept me engaged and a little surprised. Overall, a decently good H.R.

Team Cigar Review: H.R. Blue Petit Edmundo

A nice set of dark flavors with the wood and earth and a good creamy component. I could see this being a very good after dinner smoke, especially after something like a steak.
