Team Cigar Review: Diamond Crown Pyramid No. 7

Team Cigar Review: Diamond Crown Pyramid No. 7

It's been so long since I've had this cigar that I have no recollection of the taste. I just remember it being expensive. I apparently have been missing out this entire time as the Diamond Crown Pyramid No. 7 is what I enjoy out of a good Connecticut shade. Easy going with plenty of sweetness, creaminess and just the right amount of spice. I won't wait this long to enjoy another one.

Team Cigar Review: Perla Del Mar Corojo Corona Gorda

Team Cigar Review: Perla Del Mar Corojo Corona Gorda

This was a fun little cigar and it delivered a solid flavor profile. Nothing impressive out of the Perla Del Mar Corojo Corona Gorda, but with the price it is a great little purchase. I really enjoyed the spice and stone fruit notes. I'm trying to remember the last time I had an Ecuadorian Corojo wrapper too.

The new cigar Havana Q is a cousin of the J.C. Newman value cigar, Quorum, the number 1 selling bundle cigar out of Nicaragua. These are another value brand cigar, but with important differences. Havana Q comes in a variety of larger ring-gauges, to cater to the modern cigar smoker's contemporary preferences.

Team Cigar Review: J.C. Newman Yagua

Team Cigar Review: J.C. Newman Yagua

The J.C. Newman Yagua had an interesting flavor profile, and might be one of the better Broadleaf wrapped cigars in 2020. Although the burn performance was absolutely abysmal, I will be returning to at least one more Yagua to see how it compares to the review experience.

Team Cigar Review: Perla del Mar Natural Perla G

Team Cigar Review: Perla del Mar Natural Perla G

The Perla del Mar Natural Perla G is a reliably good Ecuadorian Shade offering. After smoking two of these, I'm happy to say that I'd enjoy smoking these on a regular basis, especially when you factor in the price point. The flavor profile managed to balance complexity, while keeping the overall strength in the range of a typical Shade experience.

Team Cigar Review: Quorum Maduro Toro

Team Cigar Review: Quorum Maduro Toro

When I see a near $3 mixed short filler cigar, my main question is if it's worth the money based on taste and technical performance. The answer is a resounding yes. The Quorum Maduro Toro is one of the better cheap cigars I've had. Price aside, if I now ask whether the cigar was an overall good cigar, the answer is not quite. But given the performance based on price, for sure a recommend.

Team Cigar Review: La Unica Natural No. 400

Team Cigar Review: La Unica Natural No. 400

The La Unica Natural No. 400 was an average tasting experience. The profile felt a bit monotonous and could have used some more complexities such as greater spice. I can see myself smoking one of these in the morning with a cup of black coffee.
