Team Cigar Review: Illusione Epernay 10th Anniversary d'Aosta

Team Cigar Review: Illusione Epernay 10th Anniversary d’Aosta

The profile of the Illusione Epernay 10th Anniversary d'Aosta kept with my experience of a smooth and flavorful profile for the line. While I wish the profile from the first half had lasted longer, it still provided a good overall experience. I would have no problem mixing this vitola in with smoking the other vitolas in the line. If you're a fan of Illusione, this is a definite must try.

Team Cigar Review: Oscar Valladares Super Fly Super Corona

Team Cigar Review: Oscar Valladares Super Fly Super Corona

Overall, I enjoyed the Oscar Valladares Super Fly Super Corona. The packaging was a little over the top, but at the same time perfect for the name of the cigar. The blend itself backed up the packaging and overall presentation of the cigar, and that is what is important.

Team Cigar Review: Eiroa Dark 50x5

Team Cigar Review: Eiroa Dark 50×5

I enjoyed the Eiroa Dark 50x5 quite a bit and look forward to smoking more. This is a great new addition to the Eiroa portfolio and I'd have no problem recommending this to others.

Team Cigar Review: Punch Egg Roll

Team Cigar Review: Punch Egg Roll

I'm a bit taken back by how much I enjoyed the Punch Egg Roll. This was a well executed short robusto and just the right size to have all the notes pull through nicely. I hope General Cigar makes more renditions of this in the future. Maybe Spring Roll for next years release?

Team Cigar Review: CLE Habano 70x4

Team Cigar Review: CLE Habano 70×4

CLE does Habano wrapped cigars pretty well and this was no exception. If you're OK with large ring gauge cigars, then the CLE Habano 70x4 is well worth your time. The first third burned through fairly quick, but after that, it had a longer smoking time per third. Don't expect this to be a fast smoke due to the short length.

Personal Cigar Review: Henry Clay War Hawk Corona

Personal Cigar Review: Henry Clay War Hawk Corona

The Henry Clay War Hawk Corona was a very enjoyable cigar and one of my favorite Ecuadorian Connecticut offerings this year. I love the use of the Broadleaf binder and the Honduran tobacco in the filler. The cigar has a great price and winning qualities.

Team Cigar Review: Henry Clay War Hawk Toro

Team Cigar Review: Henry Clay War Hawk Toro

The Henry Clay War Hawk Toro is a pretty good Connecticut shade offering that has a good amount of body to it. When in the mood for a Connecticut shade, I'd have no problem with considering this cigar as one to scratch that itch. The price point is nice and this cigar brings some good value with it's flavor offering.

Team Cigar Review: Providencia Trinitas

Team Cigar Review: Providencia Trinitas

The Providencia Trinitas delivers rich San Andres chocolate notes, with flavors of cedar, minerality and baking spices. I found the first and second thirds delivered consistent flavors with the final third being average. The burn was very good, but the draw did struggle for some time before finally opening up.

Personal Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Elegante

Personal Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Elegante

I enjoyed the first third and then the rest of the JRE Aladino Elegante was fairly average. With a cigar of this length, I was hoping for a little more in terms of the composition of the flavor profile and transitions. I'd have no problem smoking more of these, but I'd probably lean towards a vitola in the line with a shorter length and larger ring gauge.

Team Cigar Review: La Palina Bronze Label Robusto

Team Cigar Review: La Palina Bronze Label Robusto

In the instance of the La Palina Bronze Label Robusto, I was surprised especially by the minerals. In general, the flavors of minerals, dry red peppers, natural sweet creaminess off dried nuts was range I didn't expect and worked well. The only let down was the subpar burn in which I hope it is a one off situation. I'll gladly smoke it again even if I have to fight the burn.
