Team Cigar Review: C.L.E. 25th Anniversary 11/18 TAA

Team Cigar Review: C.L.E. 25th Anniversary 11/18 TAA

This C.L.E. 25th Anniversary 11/18 TAA turned out to be a bit of a bright spot in another year of disappointing TAA releases. The price point is high on this cigar, but I think is worth it for the occasional enjoyment. I'd smoke another, in hopes of a better burn, and it's a nice addition to the C.L.E. portfolio.

Personal Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Maduro Corona

Personal Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Maduro Corona

The JRE Aladino Maduro Corona started with an average profile and remained that way until the final third when the heavy char knocked things down some. If you're a fan of charred wood and heavy black pepper, you'll find something you like here. I just felt it was too much and didn't provide an enjoyable version of those components.

Team Cigar Review: Camacho Nicaragua Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Camacho Nicaragua Robusto

The Camacho Nicaragua Robusto showcases some of the better flavor components from Nicaraguan tobacco. Rather than overpower you with spice and pepper, the cigar offers up baking spices, creaminess and sweetness that kept me engaged throughout the review experience. I will still continue to smoke these when I have the opportunity.

Team Cigar Review: CAO Expedición TAA Exclusive 2020

Team Cigar Review: CAO Expedición TAA Exclusive 2020

The CAO Expedición TAA Exclusive 2020 showed promise in the first third, but as I progressed into the second and final third, I found the flavor profile to remain stagnant and somewhat flat. Overall, if there was more complexity and depth, and some transitioning into the second and final third, this cigar would have done well.

Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Habano Vintage Selection Rothschild

Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Habano Vintage Selection Rothschild

This was a tasty little cigar. Well balanced and full of flavors, never letting off the gas pedal from first draw to last. Minerals, baking spices, roasted chestnuts, milk creaminess and white pepper spice. Nothing to dislike about that flavor combination. I thoroughly enjoyed the JRE Aladino Habano Vintage Selection Rothschild and it's an easy recommend.

Team Cigar Review: Oscar Valladares Super Fly Connecticut

Team Cigar Review: Oscar Valladares Super Fly Connecticut Corona

I liked the Oscar Valladares Super Fly Connecticut. This is a great Honduran Connecticut wrapper. I thought the cigar was released in a great size and it delivered a solid flavor profile with transitioning taking place throughout. It had a nice body and strength level, construction was great, and priced really well. I would definitely come back to these and recommend them to many.

Team Cigar Review: Camacho Distillery Edition Corojo Toro

Team Cigar Review: Camacho Distillery Edition Corojo Toro

I personally don't care for the flavor profile overall, it is not my cup of tea, but nonetheless it is a good cigar and I believe some would enjoy this offering of the Camacho Corojo. In my opinion, just stick with the classic Camacho Corojo over this Camacho Distillery Edition Corojo Toro.

Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Cameroon Lonsdale

Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Cameroon Lonsdale

The JRE Aladino Cameroon Lonsdale has to be one of the best cigars I've smoked and reviewed during 2020. The first third is a harmonized and complex list of flavors that kept my palate highly engaged. The rest of the cigar wasn't as complex, but still good with enjoyable flavor combinations. Burn and construction were great on the cigar, no doubt elevating the smoking experience.

Team Cigar Review: Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure Selección No. 1

Team Cigar Review: Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure Selección No. 1

I really enjoyed the Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure Selección No. 1 and my score reflects that. I really got behind the flavor profile and it did more than keep my interest from beginning to end. On top of that, there was a great body and strength level with the cigar. The construction was on point and the wrapper and presentation were great.

Team Cigar Review: Macanudo Inspirado Palladium Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Macanudo Inspirado Palladium Robusto

The Macanudo Inspirado Palladium Robusto was an enjoyable and pleasant smoking experience. Although, the final third didn't have the same levels of complexity present in the first two thirds. Overall, the strength never seemed to climb above medium minus and I feel like this cigar could appeal to a broad range of cigar smokers.
