Team Cigar Review: Southern Draw Manzanita Toro

Team Cigar Review: Southern Draw Manzanita Toro

The Southern Draw Manzanita Toro started out promising in the first third with a dessert like flavor experience. The profile changed significantly moving into the second and last thirds, losing my attention through the review. I find almost everything from Southern Draw to be enjoyable for my palate, so I think I will return to the Manzanita in a few months to see if it evolves over time.

Team Cigar Review: Southern Draw Jacobs Ladder Brimstone Un Presidente

The Southern Draw Jacobs Ladder Brimstone Un Presidente is one of the better large format cigars that I've ever reviewed. Even though large format cigars aren't usually my preferred format, the flavors here are interesting enough to keep me engaged for the first two thirds, but not so intense that my palate was burned out from the intensity.

Team Cigar Review: Southern Draw Firethorn Augusta

Team Cigar Review: Southern Draw Firethorn Augusta

The Southern Draw Firethorn Augusta was overall an enjoyable cigar, with the tannins in the last third serving as a distraction from an otherwise balanced profile. Construction was good, with one re-light required during the review, and a perfect draw. Like almost everything from Southern Draw, I would smoke another Firethorn Augusta if I saw it on the shelf.

Team Cigar Review: Southern Draw Rose of Sharon Desert Rose Lonsdale

The Southern Draw Rose of Sharon Desert Rose Lonsdale was an enjoyable cigar that showed most of its complexity through the first and second thirds. I enjoyed the Lonsdale format, but I think the natural comparison that will be made is with the original Belicoso release in 2019.

Team Cigar Review: Southern Draw Private Blend Corojo No. 4 Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Southern Draw Private Blend Corojo No. 4 Robusto

I do think the Southern Draw Private Blend Corojo No. 4 Robusto was a good cigar. There is plenty of black pepper spice and heat with trailing sweetness and creaminess (less in the final third). The blend worked well and as such, I overall thought it was in the good category.
