Team Cigar Review: Pier 28 Oscuro Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Pier 28 Oscuro Robusto

I almost feel like the Pier 28 Oscuro Robusto is a combination of Pier 28's Habano line and Maduro line. All in all, if you are a fan of especially the Maduro line, this should be right up your alley.

The Espinosa Las 6 Provincias LHB is yet another example of the stronger, spicier side of Espinosa's offerings. For me, this is a post (big) dinner smoke as the spice would be better complimented after such. If you enjoy the "typical" Espinosa offering, you will no doubt enjoy this.

Cigar News: Cigar Dojo and Espinosa Collaborate on Feng Shui

With Feng Shui, Cigar Dojo has partnered with Espinosa Premium Cigars and the company's La Zona factory to find balance and harmony with "The Dojo's" Asian influence. This is most quickly evident with the cigar's square format. In fact, the box-press mold was custom designed by members of the Cigar Dojo team, offering the most box-pressed vitola from a Cigar Dojo collaborative project to date.

Team Cigar Review: Espinosa Wasabi

Team Cigar Review: Espinosa Wasabi

Given my expectations, the spice delivery was met in spades, although I'm not too sure if I would call it a wasabi/horseradish delivery. Instead, it was more white pepper driven. What's interesting is, I rarely tasted conventional candela flavors (vegetal, grassy). Overall, if you are a fan of bigger spice in a candela cigar, the Espinosa Wasabi is no doubt for you.

Team Cigar Review: 601 Blue Label Maduro Toro

Team Cigar Review: 601 Blue Label Maduro Toro

When you consider the high level review performance for Espinosa cigars, it sets a challenging bar for releases to meet. Compared to those consistently great releases, the 601 Blue Label Maduro Toro ends up being an average cigar. That isn't to say it's a bad cigar, because it is enjoyable, and the powdered cocoa flavors are going to appeal to a very broad smoking audience.

Team Cigar Review: Espinosa Murcielago Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Espinosa Murcielago Robusto

This is a very nice re-introduction of the Murcielago and one I would go back to often. This would be a good evening/after dinner cigar based on the full and dark flavors along with the strength. Fans of the previous Murcielago's and those that are Espinosa fans are sure to find another favorite here.

The Espinosa Reggae was very enjoyable. I wasn't sure whether the cigar flavors were going to align with the packaging concept, but I should have had more faith in Espinosa to deliver another great blend.

A lot of cocoa through the first third along with some crushed red pepper and wood. As it progressed, it settled into an oak and cocoa profile. This is a very nice variation on the Pier 28 line.

I found it to be on the more delicate and smoother side of flavors. I enjoyed the nuances of the cigar with the earthed spice delivery and creamed roasted nuttiness prevalent throughout the entire cigar.
