Team Cigar Review: La Aurora 115th Anniversary Regular Production Robusto

Team Cigar Review: La Aurora 115th Anniversary Regular Production Robusto

I was very pleased with the La Aurora 115th Anniversary Regular Production Robusto. It may not show a lot of transitioning between each third, but the flavor profile delivered and balance was very enjoyable. There is some depth and complexity to the cigar and the combination of cinnamon and lemon was fantastic. A solid cigar that I will enjoy in the future.

Team Cigar Review: Alec and Bradley Gatekeeper Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Alec and Bradley Gatekeeper Robusto

Upon initial draw of the Alec and Bradley Gatekeeper Robusto, you know what you're in for. It's a bold and hefty delivery of flavors centered around red pepper spice, meatiness, cedar and sharp minerals with a medium plus strength to match. All in all, solid sophomore release by Alec and Bradley.

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo Cincuenta Toro

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo Cincuenta Toro

The Montecristo Cincuenta Toro was a really nice cigar to celebrate 50 years. I thought the flavor profile was enjoyable and I loved the transitioning that took place. It had depth as well and this is what I look for in a cigar. The only thing going against this cigar is the price, but it is a limited release and comes in an amazing humidor so that is understandable.

Team Cigar Review: El Artista Buffalo Ten

Team Cigar Review: El Artista Buffalo Ten

Overall, the El Artista Buffalo Ten is a really good cigar. I am just looking at the price on this smoke and shocked. I will be interested in seeing how this cigar smokes from sample to sample, the two I smoked were great, but that will be the key. Love finding smokes like this.

Team Cigar Review: Casa Cuevas La Mandarria Toro

Team Cigar Review: Casa Cuevas La Mandarria Toro

I can't recall the last time I saw such a gap between regular production offerings and limited editions, and the Casa Cuevas La Mandarria Toro took my thoughts on Casa Cuevas to a much higher level. This was a balanced cigar that was flavorful, and while there was not a dramatic level of transitioning between each third, there was some present and it helped out with the depth of the overall flavor profile

Team Cigar Review: Diamond Crown Robusto No. 4

Team Cigar Review: Diamond Crown Robusto No. 4

For the fans of traditional Connecticut shade cigars, they'll find something they are familiar with and can enjoy in the Diamond Crown Robusto No. 4. The price point is a bit high for the offering and many cigars that smoke similar to this can be found for less. I'd have no problem smoking this again, but based on price, it wouldn't be my first choice for this style of cigar.

Team Cigar Review: Quesada 1974 Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Quesada 1974 Robusto

The Quesada 1974 Robusto was an overall average tasting cigar with very good construction. The first third's slick and oily delivery of baking spices, minerals and bread was a good starting point. However, as the cigar continued, it mainly became the same spice and earth character without the bread to break up the monotony. Purchase a couple to try, but probably no more than that.

Team Cigar Review: San Pedro de Macorís Sun Grown Robusto

Team Cigar Review: San Pedro de Macorís Sun Grown Robusto

The San Pedro de Macorís Sun Grown Robusto is an enjoyable offering and a solid blend. I like how the wrapper works on the cigar and the flavors delivered throughout are enjoyable. With the price tag of this cigar and all of the San Pedro offerings, these are box purchase smokes.

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Complexion Toro

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Complexion Toro

The Davidoff Complexion Toro is a solid release that has an enjoyable flavor profile and a great strength and body level. I do feel the cigar would have performed much better if the first third profile was more present in the second and final, in particularly the second third, but that was not the case.

Team Cigar Review: Nat Sherman Timeless Limited Edition TAA 2019

Team Cigar Review: Nat Sherman Timeless Limited Edition TAA 2019

The Nat Sherman Timeless Limited Edition TAA 2019 is possibly the best Dominican puro I have smoked in 2019 and to be honest, one of the best cigars I have had this year as well. It was complex with great body and strength and the flavors were off the chart. There was beautiful transitioning throughout each third and the depth as well was sublime.
