The Balmoral Anejo XO Nicaragua Gran Toro is a complex blend that showed transitioning from start to finish and more importantly, balanced. Would highly recommend this cigar to any smoker out there. A lovely blend that can be enjoyed any time of day.

Team Cigar Review: Jeremy Jack Blarney Stick

Although it's fun and festive, I admit I almost never look forward to candela cigars. They are typically too vegetal and boring in flavors for me. In the case of the Jeremy Jack Blarney Stick, I'm happy to say it wasn't entirely like this. What especially kept me engaged was the sweet tip. I'm typically quick to take a big deuce on sweet tips, but it actually worked on this cigar.

Team Cigar Review: Cohiba Spectre CS19

Overall, the Cohiba Spectre CS19 is a good cigar. I love the dark flavor profiles that are delivered and they go well with the strength and body level. There was a nice complexity present with the cigar, depth as well, and the transitioning was solid throughout.

Team Cigar Review: Saga Solaz Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Saga Solaz Robusto

The Saga Solaz Robusto was an interesting cigar that served up a more classic Connecticut flavor profile with more subtle and complex notes in the first third. The second and last third became more traditional with grass and bitterness that I find most often with Connecticut blends of years ago.

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

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!
