Team Cigar Review: Caldwell Blind Man's Bluff Maduro This is Trouble

Team Cigar Review: Caldwell Blind Man’s Bluff Maduro This is Trouble

The Caldwell Blind Man's Bluff Maduro This is Trouble kept me engaged through the first and second thirds with an interesting combination and balance of flavors. The draw and burn were fairly flawless. Based on this review experience I would add this cigar to the list of Caldwell releases I would happily smoke again.

Team Cigar Review: E.P. Carrillo Short Run Retro 2021 Short Play

Team Cigar Review: E.P. Carrillo Short Run Retro 2021 Short Play

This was a good cigar, and it was nice to see a blend like this from E.P. Carrillo again. The E.P. Carrillo Short Run Retro 2021 Short Play had nice flavors of spices, earth, wood, and the overall barnyard qualities were fantastic. It started off a little bit stronger than it finished, but I like when a cigar does that. Really was great to smoke an E.P. Carrillo Short Run offering with the original bands.

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Colorado Claro Special R

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Colorado Claro Special R

When it comes to the White Labels, this Davidoff Colorado Claro Special R is where my attention leads to as this blend hits for me. The price point on the line is fairly high, but it is worth reaching for from time to time and I would recommend that anyone who hasn't tried one yet, do so.

Team Cigar Review: Kristoff 685 Woodlawn Box Pressed Toro TAA 2021

Team Cigar Review: Kristoff 685 Woodlawn Box Pressed Toro TAA 2021

The Kristoff 685 Woodlawn Box Pressed Toro TAA 2021 certainly brings its A game for presentation and a fairly good flavor profile through the first two thirds. I would happily smoke another Kristoff 685 Woodlawn Box Pressed Toro TAA 2021, and if you enjoyed the flavor notes, I'd recommend seeking them out.

Personal Cigar Review: Arturo Fuente Hemingway Between the Lines

Personal Cigar Review: Arturo Fuente Hemingway Between the Lines

While I would probably lean towards the non-barber poles in the Hemingway line, the Arturo Fuente Hemingway Between the Lines is a nice variation. The price point is fairly high for the short smoking time, but I could see coming back to this on occasion.

Team Cigar Review: German Engineered NN01

Team Cigar Review: German Engineered NN01

The German Engineered NN01 was a curious dichotomy as it seemed to deliver on good flavors in the first and second third, although sitting back down to write the review I couldn't tell you what stood out for me for the profile or overall impression. I would smoke one of these again. The price should make these quite approachable for most smokers.

Team Cigar Review: Macanudo Inspirado Brazilian Shade Toro

Team Cigar Review: Macanudo Inspirado Brazilian Shade Toro

The Macanudo Inspirado Brazilian Shade Toro was a fun cigar with a nice flavor profile. Not overly complex, it was balanced throughout. I loved the coffee, cream and lemongrass qualities throughout. A solid medium in strength and body, it is a cigar that many could enjoy at any time of day. Job well done!

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Signature 6000

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Signature 6000

While there is a large segment of the smoking population that would enjoy this cigar, the Davidoff Signature 6000 is just a bit too basic for me. With the high price point, I just don't see returning to it, but if you're a fan of mellow Connecticut shades, it will likely be right in your wheelhouse.

Team Cigar Review: Diamond Crown Pyramid No. 7

Team Cigar Review: Diamond Crown Pyramid No. 7

It's been so long since I've had this cigar that I have no recollection of the taste. I just remember it being expensive. I apparently have been missing out this entire time as the Diamond Crown Pyramid No. 7 is what I enjoy out of a good Connecticut shade. Easy going with plenty of sweetness, creaminess and just the right amount of spice. I won't wait this long to enjoy another one.
