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.

Personal Cigar Review: El Rey del Mundo Robusto OSC

Personal Cigar Review: El Rey del Mundo Robusto OSC

The El Rey del Mundo Robusto OSC has an attractive price point and is pretty serviceable through the first two thirds before becoming undesirable in the final third. For those that are budget smokers, this is a cigar to check out, just keep in mind that it might be something to put down after the second third.

Team Cigar Review: CLE Signature THT-EKE 03/17 TAA 11/18

Team Cigar Review: CLE Signature THT-EKE 03/17 TAA 11/18

I typically wouldn't say this about a cigar I felt was overall average tasting, but I actually do want to smoke this CLE Signature THT-EKE 03/17 TAA 11/18 again in a few months. The oddities of flavors both intrigues me and annoys me, because I rarely taste a cigar that's this much of an odd ball that I cannot definitively identify the flavors. But then again, do I want to do this for $18? That's a tough one.

Team Cigar Review: United Cigar Abuelo Nieta

Team Cigar Review: United Cigar Abuelo Nieta

The United Cigar Abuelo Nieta was fairly engaging in the first third, and provided a rather light-plus and approachable smoking experience for the second and last thirds. Overall, it was a pleasant cigar review, even if the complexity of the flavor profile didn't rise to the category of a Good rating.

Team Cigar Review: Camacho Liberty 2021

Team Cigar Review: Camacho Liberty 2021

Granted, I haven't consistently kept up with the Camacho Liberty Series (especially the newer releases), I never had this type of lackluster experience. And being completely honest, this Camacho Liberty 2021 borderlines being average and subpar. The mixture of flavors were odd and unbalanced being oddly bitter and leathery dry vegetation driven with minerals and cedar.
