Personal Cigar Review: Highclere Castle Robusto

Personal Cigar Review: Highclere Castle Robusto

My issue with the Highclere Castle Robusto is the dryness and bitterness as the cigar evolves. These components just degrade the flavor profile and make it a bit unpleasant. While I found this vitola to smoke slightly better than the Toro, it's just not something I see myself coming back to.

Personal Cigar Review: Highclere Castle Victorian Robusto

The Highclere Castle Victorian Robusto is definitely a darker and heavier profile than the original. While it started well, it just couldn't maintain the profile and degraded as it went along. The price point is pretty high for the experience provided and I don't see myself really coming back to this one.

Team Cigar Review: Foundation El Güegüense 5 Year Aniversario

The Foundation El Güegüense 5 Year Aniversario overall was a good experience, but I still find myself a bit disappointed. When you consider some of the high performing past Foundation releases, the fact that this is an anniversary cigar, and the price point, I feel that the cigar under performed.

Team Cigar Review: Foundation The Tabernacle Goliath

Team Cigar Review: Foundation The Tabernacle Goliath

The Foundation The Tabernacle Goliath did enough to keep my palate engaged through the first and second thirds. The last third was a bit of a let down, but the combination of flavors and an interesting vitola format won me over in the end. The price point might have me hesitant to smoke these more regularly, but I think this will be another release win for Foundation.
