Team Cigar Review: MLB Cigar Ventures David P. Ehrlich PLM Series Toro

Team Cigar Review: David P. Ehrlich PLM Series Toro

Overall, I enjoyed the David P. Ehrlich PLM Series Toro. At times, the profile became a bit too earth driven with its dirt/soil, leather and mineral notes. But, there was enough cream and citrus to not make it overly earth dominant. I recommend this to someone that enjoys a heavier profile.

Personal Cigar Review: Saga Short Tales Tomo V L.A.V.

Personal Cigar Review: Saga Short Tales Tomo V L.A.V.

The fact that the flavor profile of the Saga Short Tales Tomo V L.A.V. was pretty enjoyable through the first two thirds while the construction was quite poor is a testament to this blend. I would love to revisit a better constructed version to see if this cigar can really shine.

Team Cigar Review: Villiger La Flor de Ynclan Lancero Especial

Team Cigar Review: Villiger La Flor de Ynclan Lancero Especial

The Flor de Ynclan release in 2017 was a great cigar, but they've managed to create a Lancero that represents a peak of flavor performance. There is no doubt in my mind the Villiger La Flor de Ynclan Lancero Especial is a cigar that is going to be talked about on every top list at the end of 2018.

Team Cigar Review: La Barba Primitivo Robusto

Team Cigar Review: La Barba Ricochet Robusto

Not only is the La Barba Ricochet Robusto a great cigar for the company, it's a great cigar in general and a fantastic Mexican San Andres wrapper offering. The flavors were terrific from start to finish and it had a great bit of transitioning while remaining complex throughout.

Personal Cigar Review: Debonaire Maduro Sagita

Personal Cigar Review: Debonaire Maduro Sagita

If you like dark wood and meaty flavors, the Debonaire Maduro Sagita is a cigar well worth checking out. I'm interested in trying some other vitolas to see if they have this same flavor profile. If so, I could see it being an enjoyable line.

Team Cigar Review: Caldwell Eastern Standard Habano Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Caldwell Eastern Standard Habano Robusto

The Caldwell Eastern Standard Habano Robusto is quite a departure from the Caldwell style of cigars that I know. While I can be appreciative of this style of cigar, it's not really my cup of tea. In conclusion, if you ever complained about Caldwell cigars being "too light" or "not enough spice," bitch no more.

Personal Cigar Review: Debonaire Daybreak Toro

Personal Cigar Review: Debonaire Daybreak Toro

A good flavor profile in the first third, then becoming average the rest of the way. Flavors focused around wood and cream with some bitterness and mustiness joining in midway. The Debonaire Daybreak Toro fits in with the large volume of average Connecticuts. With this having a higher price point, it makes it tougher to want to revisit based on the results.

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Diademas Finas Limited Edition 50th Anniversary

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Diademas Finas Limited Edition 50th Anniversary

I have smoked a handful of these and every one gets better. The Davidoff Diademas Finas Limited Edition 50th Anniversary had depth, complexity and transitioning, and when you have that you can't ask for much more. This is truly an example of a great cigar. This is what you want in a cigar.

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Golf Scorecard Edition 2016

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Golf Scorecard Edition 2016

The Davidoff Golf Scorecard Edition 2016 is another good example of the company showing off their good tobacco and blending capabilities focusing on the milder strength, full flavor recipe. Although the list of flavors I tasted wasn't exhaustive (black pepper, cedar, buttery cream, hay), the large format cigar kept my interest and enjoyment throughout the entire time.
