Personal Cigar Review: Perla del Mar Maduro Double Toro

Personal Cigar Review: Perla del Mar Maduro Double Toro

The Perla del Mar Maduro Double Toro had an average flavor profile with a few transitions, but nothing too exciting. For a cigar of this price point, you get a long smoking time, so if you like the profile described and tend to go for cigars on the lower end of the price spectrum, this would be one to seek out.

Personal Cigar Review: J.C. Newman Yagua 2021

Personal Cigar Review: J.C. Newman Yagua 2021

Overall, the J.C. Newman Yagua 2021 was pretty on par in regards to the enjoyment level as the original release, The flavor profile was a bit different, lacking the sweetness of the original, but still an enjoyable one. The price point is very attractive and I'd be up for coming back to this from time to time.

Team Cigar Review: Cuesta-Rey No. 95 Cameroon

Team Cigar Review: Cuesta-Rey No. 95 Cameroon

"True" Cameroon wrappers have always been intriguing to me. There's the ideal of where it should come from, where the best come from, and there is talk about how if it's right, it'll taste rich in spice and sweetness alike. But the (my) reality is, I haven't had many good ones. Then comes this Cuesta-Rey No. 95 Cameroon. Rich, sweet, spicy and full of flavors. This was great from first to last draw.

Personal Cigar Review: Quorum Shade Toro

Personal Cigar Review: Quorum Shade Toro

For a bundle cigar, the Quorum Shade Toro did quite well. I would pin this towards the top of my list as a cigar for a new smoker as it does a great job of easing you in to the experience. While it's not something I would smoke often, it's definitely a good yard cigar and at the price point, it's really hard to do better.

Team Cigar Review: J.C. Newman Havana Q Double Toro

Personal Cigar Review: J.C. Newman Havana Q Double Toro

For a bundle cigar, the J.C. Newman Havana Q Double Toro is serviceable, but it's not really the profile I prefer and I wouldn't see myself coming back to this unless I just wanted to light something up while doing something else.
