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.

Team Cigar Review: J.C. Newman The American President

Team Cigar Review: J.C. Newman The American President

A baller look and an overall tasty profile. I'm typically not all that excited for such a long smoking experience, as it tends to be monotonous. But, the J.C. Newman The American President showed composure throughout the vast majority of the smoking experience. Bold statement, but I think this may be worth the $20.

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.
