Team Cigar Review: Saga Short Tales Tomo VI: The Sixth Element: El Tabaco

Team Cigar Review: Saga Short Tales Tomo VI: The Sixth Element: El Tabaco

I don't really see Saga getting too much buzz on social media, but cigars like this Saga Short Tales Tomo VI: The Sixth Element: El Tabaco are ones that I could see having a wide appeal. Medium strength with good flavors is a good combination for many levels of smokers. I'd have no problem smoking more of these and would suggest people give them a try to see if it interests them in the line or the brand itself.

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Superior

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Superior

The Davidoff Superior is a good cigar, but I really wish the flavor profile present in the final third was present throughout. If it was, the cigar could take on that Superior title. I think it will be well received by some, but for those that are looking for a bit more complexity and lighter, more complex flavors will find it underwhelming.

Team Cigar Review: La Barba One and Only 2018 Super Toro

Team Cigar Review: La Barba One and Only 2018 Super Toro

I am a big fan of the La Barba One and Only 2018 Super Toro. It is flavor focused and a cigar that you really have to take your time on and focus on to truly enjoy. I would classify it as a cigar for connoisseurs and not just cigar smokers.

Team Cigar Review: El Artista Cimarron Connecticut Robusto

Team Cigar Review: El Artista Cimarron Connecticut Robusto

For me, the El Artista Cimarron Connecticut Robusto is more towards the traditional side of Connecticut shade cigars. The baseline flavors of sweet cream and bread are notes I always welcome to any cigar. Paired with white pepper, cedar, hay, nuts and underlying bitterness rounds out to a profile in which I can enjoy any time of the day.

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Year of the Pig

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Year of the Pig

The Davidoff Year of the Pig is a strong cigar in terms of strength and it produces filling and stronger flavors as well. It has some body to it which is present from start to finish, and much more so than past Davidoff releases. If you are looking for a lighter offering that is more flavor focused like years past, this might not be your cup of tea.

Team Cigar Review: Caldwell Long Live the King MAD MF Corona

Team Cigar Review: Caldwell Long Live the King MAD MF Corona

The Caldwell Long Live the King MAD MF Corona is a really enjoyable cigar and a great new offering from Caldwell. Very different than the original Long Live the King. You can't go into the cigar looking for similarities to the original. Just a great cigar all around and one I will come back to down the road.

Team Cigar Review: E.P. Carrillo Encore Majestic

Team Cigar Review: E.P. Carrillo Encore Majestic

The flavor profile of the E.P. Carrillo Encore Majestic consisted of cedar, sweet cream and baking spice later transitioning to charred wood and then a pine note. The cream lost its sweetness as it went along and some mustiness joined in during the second half. I could see myself smoking more of these and would have no problem steering others towards it.

Team Cigar Review: Crowned Heads Court Reserve XVIII Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Crowned Heads Court Reserve XVIII Robusto

The Crowned Heads Court Reserve XVIII Robusto is a proper Mexican San Andres. This wrapper has a tendency to be too earth dominant for me. But Crowned Heads did a great job of tapering the earth with some tasty notes of cherry cordials and creamy bread. That and the evolving spice led to an experience that was enjoyable from first draw to the last.

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Chefs Edition 50th Anniversary

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Chefs Edition 50th Anniversary

The Davidoff Chefs Edition 50th Anniversary is a great cigar and a fantastic use of Yamasa tobacco in the filler blend and wrapper. It is complex in flavor profiles being delivered and with that is some depth and transitioning. As to be expected, Davidoff created a well constructed cigar with high quality tobacco to make for a great smoking experience.

Team Cigar Review: San Pedro de Macorís Ecuador Robusto

Team Cigar Review: San Pedro de Macorís Ecuador Robusto

The San Pedro de Macorís Ecuador Robusto is really an enjoyable Connecticut and one of my favorite new Ecuadorian Connecticut offerings. It has a nice flavor profile that is fairly complex and while it is not showing a lot of transitioning from start to finish, it does have some depth to it.
