Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Classic Corona

Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Classic Corona

The JRE Aladino Classic Corona offered balanced and interesting flavors that at times were up to medium-full strength but remained balanced through the majority of the cigar review. I would definitely smoke the JRE Aladino Classic Corona, especially when you factor in the approachable price point.

Team Cigar Review: Alec Bradley Fine & Rare BC-(13)4EV

Team Cigar Review: Alec Bradley Fine & Rare BC-(13)4EV

The Alec Bradley Fine & Rare BC-(13)4EV is a winner in my book. The profile showed good depth, balance, and composure. With just the right mix of spice, earth and sweetness, this is one I'd smoke again. And call me crazy, because I actually think the higher premium of $24 per cigar isn't too high, considering the price hike of the average cigar nowadays. Nicely done.

Personal Cigar Review: United Cigar Series Unidas Cigar Bar Corojo

Personal Cigar Review: United Cigar Series Unidas Cigar Bar Corojo

The United Cigar Series Unidas Cigar Bar Corojo was quite disappointing as the flavor profile was a bit off-putting with the staleness and bitterness. Things got slightly better after the re-light, but nothing that could reverse course for the cigar overall. The cigar burned pretty quickly as well. I just don't think this is the desired outcome of what the cigar was supposed to be. I can't see myself coming back to this one.

Team Cigar Review: CAO Pilón Añejo Robusto

Team Cigar Review: CAO Pilón Añejo Robusto

I don’t know what I am doing here, but I dug this CAO Pilón Añejo Robusto! Some cool flavors here and there with a solid core of cocoa, leather, floral and herbal qualities. Great construction! Final third was not as good as the first two thirds, but overall, I thought this was a good cigar.

Team Cigar Review: Alec Bradley Trilogy Authentic Corojo

Team Cigar Review: Alec Bradley Trilogy Authentic Corojo

The Alec Bradley Trilogy Authentic Corojo started very well as the creamy, candied cinnamon was a great flavor note. The cigar dropped down a level in each subsequent third as that cinnamon note lightened and the toast and dry earth levels increased. This is one of the best cigars I've reviewed so far this year. I'd have no problem coming back to this cigar, and would easily recommend others to give it a try.

Personal Cigar Review: Punch Aniversario Double Corona

Personal Cigar Review: Punch Aniversario Double Corona

Overall, the Punch Aniversario Double Corona was pretty average with a fairly basic flavor profile. The price point is a bit high, but if you enjoy the flavor profile, you get a lengthy smoking experience, so there may be some value there. For me, it was a bit too boring and I don't see coming back to the cigar.

Team Cigar Review: Bolivar Cofradia Lost & Found EMS Toro

Team Cigar Review: Bolivar Cofradia Lost & Found EMS Toro

The Bolivar Cofradia Lost & Found EMS Toro delivered layered, subtle and nuanced flavors through the first two thirds which kept me engaged and satisfied. The last third wasn't quite up to the same levels, but still pleasant. Once you factor in the price point on these, this would be an absolute no brainer cigar to be smoking on a regular basis.

Team Cigar Review: La Palina KB Series Part Three

Team Cigar Review: La Palina KB Series Part Three

You just wish there was a little more there at the beginning and the end for the La Palina KB Series Part Three to reach a higher level. I like the increase of strength and body from the first to second third, I thought the flavors were really jamming with that transition as well, but La Palina got too greedy and the final third was too much. The strength and body became too much and knocked the flavors out of the equation.

Personal Cigar Review: Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur Black Toro

Personal Cigar Review: Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur Black Toro

The Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur Black Toro performed like a number of cigars that I've smoked from General where the flavor profile seems a bit stale and the tobacco seems dull. Smoking a cigar with a Broadleaf wrapper, I would expect a bit more potency to the flavors and it just wasn't there. Definitely not something I see myself returning to.

Team Cigar Review: LCA Reserva Vintage 2021

Team Cigar Review: LCA Reserva Vintage 2021

The LCA Reserva Vintage 2021 had a nice start with a good combination of flavors and low strength. The second third walked the line of good/average but finished average due to the bitterness and maintained that level the rest of the way. If the cigar could have just dodged the wood bitterness, it could have been good throughout. Not sure if some time might help to alleviate that.
