Team Cigar Review: Casa Cuevas Cuevas Reserva Natural Toro

Team Cigar Review: Casa Cuevas Cuevas Reserva Natural Toro

The Casa Cuevas Cuevas Reserva Natural Toro is a beautiful Connecticut that delivered complex flavors with depth from start to finish. There was transitioning and each third was unique. The balance between flavors, body and strength was great and the construction and draw were spot on.

Personal Cigar Review: Zino Platinum Exclusive Series Washington D.C.

Personal Cigar Review: Zino Platinum Exclusive Series Washington D.C.

The Zino Platinum Exclusive Series Washington D.C. was a great cigar and all the Zino Platinum Exclusive Series smokes have been. It is complex and balanced throughout and it has a nice body and strength level with the flavors. The cherry and oak qualities were lovely, and the pairing between those and the musty wood were quite enjoyable.

Team Cigar Review: Villiger Cuellar Black Forest Toro Gordo

Team Cigar Review: Villiger Cuellar Black Forest Toro Gordo

The Villiger Cuellar Black Forest Toro Gordo is a fantastic cigar and one of the best I have smoked from Villiger in a while. They really got a great blend out of Tabacalera Palma and what a nice Mexican San Andres offering. This is definitely a maduro I will come back to down the road and one I would highly recommend.

Team Cigar Review: Kristoff JT Signature Series

Team Cigar Review: Kristoff JT Signature Series

The Kristoff JT Signature Series was a good smoking experience. Significant amount of flavor complexity through the first and second third, and average smoking experience in the last third. Strength and flavor intensity were both medium-full, so this cigar will very much appeal to the fuller bodied cigar smokers.

Team Cigar Review: Jeremy Jack Prints

Team Cigar Review: Jeremy Jack Prints

The Jeremy Jack Prints had a nice start for a short time and then became young and fairly simple. It never recovered after that and was average the rest of the way. I was interested to see how the new second generations from the brand would do and this first one was a bit of a miss for me. I'm still interested in smoking through the other releases, but I likely won't be returning to this one.

Balmoral Serie Signaturas Paso Doble Gran Toro

Team Cigar Review: Balmoral Serie Signaturas Paso Doble Gran Toro

The Balmoral Serie Signaturas Paso Doble Gran Toro was complex, showing transitioning from start to finish and always possessing depth. On top of that, the body, strength and flavors played well off of one another and left me entertained and keeping my attention throughout. Job well done!

Team Cigar Review: H. Upmann Hispaniola by Jose Mendez Toro

Team Cigar Review: H. Upmann Hispaniola by Jose Mendez Toro

I like this H. Upmann Hispaniola by Jose Mendez Toro release for H. Upmann and Altadis. I loved the flavor profile that the tobacco in the cigar produced and it is definitely a cigar that many should try. It may not be for everyone, but it is worth trying out and seeing how the different types of tobacco smoke, especially the Dominican tobaccos.

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff 100th Anniversary Diademas

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff 100th Anniversary Diademas

A cigar like the Davidoff 100th Anniversary Diademas, which is a pricey and massive Diademas should be a special cigar and that is what this cigar is and delivers. It is the Davidoff experience. The flavors were complex, showing depth and transition from start to finish, but always balanced.

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.
