Foundation Metapa Claro Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Foundation Metapa Claro Robusto

The Foundation Metapa Claro Robusto is another Foundation release that's a hitter. At this point, new releases from Nick should become an auto buy. Barnyard funktastic, earthy, nutty, sweet. I'll also add, it doesn't matter where it's made. It's good, so just go buy at least a few.

Team Cigar Review: Foundation Metapa Maduro Robusto

Typically, Nick does a great job of creating his own unique blends that are different than a lot of the homogenous blends out there, especially out of AJF. But this cigar isn't the case. It tastes more like a spicier, stronger version of most AJF cigars. The monotony of strength and heavy handed earthiness isn't palate enticing. As a result, the Foundation Metapa Maduro Robusto is a pass for me.

Team Cigar Review: Highclere Castle Senetjer

Team Cigar Review: Highclere Castle Senetjer

I really enjoyed this Highclere Castle Senetjer and the flavor profile delivered. Balanced with some dry earth and cocoa qualities. Balance of sweet and peppery with the spices. Great construction. Well made cigar with nice strength and body to pair the flavors as well. Beautiful presentation. Hard to not buy a box of these cigars. Great offering by Highclere Castle and Foundation.

Team Cigar Review: Foundation Olmec Maduro Double Corona

Team Cigar Review: Foundation Olmec Maduro Double Corona

This Foundation Olmec Maduro Double Corona was a pleasure to smoke. The medium-full viscosity complimented the darker flavors of dry cocoa, light cream, cedar, subtle dried red pepper spice and leather very well. Compound that by AJ's world class perfection in burn and draw and you got yourself a winner.

Team Cigar Review: Foundation Olmec Claro Double Corona

My experience reviewing the Foundation Olmec Claro Double Corona was an overall average flavor experience, with the most complex and engaging combinations coming in the first third. The second and last thirds were too light and not at all engaging. I felt as if I smoked the wrong size for this blend, and although I can't see myself returning to the Double Corona, I'll be giving this a shot in a different vitola.

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

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.
