Team Cigar Review: Partagas Legend Corona Extra Leyenda

Team Cigar Review: Partagas Legend Corona Extra Leyenda

The Partagas Legend Corona Extra Leyenda is an enjoyable smoking experience. With a complex flavor profile of cream, chocolate, leather, pepper, baking spices and loamy earth. I particularly enjoyed the vitola, and found the soft square press very comfortable.

Team Cigar Review: CAO Nicaragua Granada

Team Cigar Review: CAO Nicaragua Granada

The CAO Nicaragua Granada had a pretty linear profile of wood, baking spice and mustiness. Some cream was present at times along with a bit of char to the wood. Strength was below medium the whole way. While I probably won't gravitate to this cigar again, I could see it doing very well in the market.

Team Cigar Review: Ventura Slaughterhouse Natural Toro

Team Cigar Review: Ventura Slaughterhouse Natural Toro

There isn't any wow factor here, but the cigar does provide an average flavor profile through the first two thirds with a drop in the final third. Based on other cigars I've reviewed here, this score should fall in line with a fair number of cigars that are priced at twice or three times what this is. With that being said, you can have those same experiences at a discount.

Team Cigar Review: Ventura Case Study 05 Toro

Team Cigar Review: Ventura Case Study 05 Toro

The more I smoke the Case Studies, the more I believe Ventura's marketing statement of selecting good cigars from various factories. The Ventura Case Study 05 was just plain and simply a good cigar showcasing sweetness, chocolate, earth and tapered spice. I would happily smoke more of these.

Team Cigar Review: Ventura Hugo Chairman Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Ventura Hugo Chairman Robusto

The Ventura Hugo Chairman Robusto, in my opinion, was a sweet dessert. The sweetened milk chocolate note was upfront and dominant the vast majority of the time until the last third where much needed spice and minerals was available. Overall, a unique and interesting bundle of flavors.

Team Cigar Review: Southern Draw Jacobs Ladder Robusto

Definitely a fuller strength cigar that also delivers on flavor. This is a great addition to the Southern Draw portfolio and one I'm looking forward to smoking more of and trying the other vitolas. If you're a fan of the brand and like fuller strength offerings, then this is a must try.
