Team Cigar Review: San Pedro de Macorís Brazil Robusto

Team Cigar Review: San Pedro de Macorís Brazil Robusto

There are a couple ways to look at the San Pedro de Macorís Brazil Robusto in my opinion. If you look at it from the perspective of a cigar that is under $6.00, this cigar is fantastic. For the money spent, you are getting a great cigar. If you look at it as a cigar without taking price into account, it is a solid smoke but nothing impressive. It has an enjoyable flavor profile, but it lacks a lot of transitioning and complexity.

Team Cigar Review: Casa Cuevas Maduro Clásico Prensado

Team Cigar Review: Casa Cuevas Maduro Clásico Prensado

The Casa Cuevas Maduro Clásico Prensado is an enjoyable cigar with flavors of cocoa, leather, red pepper flake, pepper, sweetness and earth. Burn performance is very good, with a bit of a tight draw. Strength peaked just over medium at times, but was approachable throughout the smoking experience.

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Revery Toro

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Revery Toro

The Davidoff Revery Toro offers a complex array of flavors. Baking spices, cedar, mushroom, chocolate and toasted earth. The construction is perfect, and so is the draw, but it's what you would expect in a cigar from Davidoff. A consistent experience from start to finish, I wouldn't hesitate to light up another Davidoff Revery if I had the opportunity.

Team Cigar Review: Señorial 65th Anniversary

Team Cigar Review: Señorial 65th Anniversary

I was a fan of the Señorial 65th Anniversary when it first came out five years ago and I have enjoyed them over the years as well. In some ways, the cigar does not seem to age to me. It is one of those cigars that smokes very similar to how it did five years ago. I keep thinking the cigar is going to be drastically different in another six months, but it isn't.

Team Cigar Review: Diamond Crown Julius Caeser Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Diamond Crown Julius Caeser Robusto

It's been a while since I've previously smoked this cigar (most likely 5+ years ago) but smoking it for review confirms my thoughts of it being a revered cigar. The flavor profile was dessert-like with some nice accented spice and wood. I look forward to smoking the next one way sooner than 5 years down the road.

Team Cigar Review: La Aurora 100 Años Belicoso

Team Cigar Review: La Aurora 100 Años Belicoso

Once in a while I come across a cigar in which I can't help but draw too frequently because I enjoy the flavors so immensely. When it comes to Dominican tobacco, if you're not looking towards a pricey Davidoff, this La Aurora 100 Años Belicoso is the one to go to.

Team Cigar Review: La Flor Dominicana Special Football Edition 2019

Team Cigar Review: La Flor Dominicana Special Football Edition 2019

Overall, the La Flor Dominicana Special Football Edition 2019 was fairly average and not likely something I'd want to track down more of. The cigar was released for an event, and I suppose it would work for smoking during the game as it had a long smoking time. Paired with your favorite libation during the game may provide some nice enjoyment, but on it's own, I'd pass (and it would be an incompletion).

Team Cigar Review: Casa Cuevas Habano Clásico Prensado

Team Cigar Review: Casa Cuevas Habano Clásico Prensado

As my first introduction to the brand, I enjoyed the flavor profile of the Casa Cuevas Habano Clásico Prensado. Natural cigar tobacco flavor, sharp minerals, barnyard, roasted chestnuts with a nice dose of black pepper on the retrohale are all notes pointing to a well executed Habano wrapped cigar.

Team Cigar Review: Kristoff Vengeance Toro

Team Cigar Review: Kristoff Vengeance Toro

The Kristoff Vengeance Toro had a good start but became pedestrian from the second third on. I'd like to try this in a smaller ring gauge to see what that would do to the profile. The good first third isn't enough to keep me coming back to this cigar and it probably isn't something I'd be in a hurry to revisit.

Personal Cigar Review: El Artista Fugly

Personal Cigar Review: El Artista Fugly

For a cheroot, the El Artista Fugly smoked pretty well. The flavors were pretty average, but for this price point, it's got some good value. I'd have no problem smoking this as a kick around cigar when I'm looking for decent flavor but not able to pay much attention to it.
