Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Selección 702 Limited Edition

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Selección 702 Limited Edition

The Davidoff Selección 702 Limited Edition is an enjoyable cigar with a very nice flavor profile from start to finish. This is a flavor focused cigar, it's not about the strength or body, and while there is not a lot of transitioning from start to finish there is some transitioning present.

Team Cigar Review: Epic Smoking Shields

I classify the Epic Smoking Shields as no frills, no thrills, just a good cigar. If you're looking for a cigar that will give you great creaminess, sweetness, earth and tamed spice, this is exactly it.

Team Cigar Review: Partagás 1845 Extra Oscuro Rothschild

The Partagas 1845 Extra Oscuro Rothschild really surprised me with subdued and nuanced flavors throughout. I was able to get 1 hour and 27 minutes of smoking time which was a great value. I'll be interested to see how this cigar compares in the other available vitolas.

Team Cigar Review: La Aurora 1903 Edition Cameroon Corona

La Aurora continues to impress me with their Cameroon wrapper offerings. The La Aurora 1903 Edition Cameroon Corona isn't overly complex but the flavors are direct and full. This type of experience is well worth the $8 MSRP charged.

Team Cigar Review: Winston Churchill The Late Hour Robusto

The cigar began with wood and an interesting combination of cinnamon and black pepper. Later on it was focused around creamy oak and some floral and musty notes. I never did experience any of the barrel aged notes that I expected.

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo Ciudad de Música Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo Ciudad de Música Robusto

While I wouldn't call the Montecristo Ciudad de Música Robusto a true collaboration between blenders, it is a collaboration between brands and I would say it worked well. If you're a fan of Crowned Heads or E.P. Carrillo, it's a must try and this should be a good attraction for people to the Montecristo brand. This is a cigar well done.

The VegaFina Robusto Extra PigTail Añejado 7 Años was a surprising pleasure to smoke. The cigar touched on all major factors of a good cigar: spice, sweetness, creaminess and earthiness, all wrapped up in a flawless burn and draw. Don't sleep on this one.

Team Cigar Review: Bespoke Basilica C #1

Team Cigar Review: Bespoke Basilica C #1

While not a complex profile, the flavors the cigar produced were good, centering around aged and slightly spicy cedar and cream. For those that enjoy smooth flavors with a low strength level, this cigar delivers just that.

Team Cigar Review: Aging Room Quattro F55M Vibrato

Reviewing my flavor notes, I basically just wrote about cardboard and variations of spice (baking spices and black pepper spice). These notes were too boring, especially for such a large sized cigar. If the cigar had more complexities working off the bread, coffee and nuts, this would have greatly enhanced the flavor profile. But as it stands, just an average tasting cigar.
