Team Cigar Review: Blind Faith by Alec & Bradley Robsuto

Team Cigar Review: Blind Faith by Alec & Bradley Robusto

The profile on the Blind Faith by Alec & Bradley Robusto is more nuanced and subtle than many other offerings from their portfolio. The blend seems focused on sweetness, chocolate and cedar, leaving the spices and pepper to serve as accent notes. The strength was largely medium throughout with the flavors approaching medium-full at times.

Personal Cigar Review: Camacho Ecuador BXP Gordo

Personal Cigar Review: Camacho Ecuador BXP Gordo

For those that like bigger ring gauges, the Camacho Ecuador BXP Gordo might be a good cigar to go to especially if it keeps their attention. If you have a significant amount of time to sit down with this, you'll probably enjoy your time with it.

Team Cigar Review: Plasencia Cosecha 146 La Vega

Team Cigar Review: Plasencia Cosecha 146 La Vega

It'll be a disservice to not retrohale the Plasencia Cosecha 146 La Vega as it's the best part of it, giving full notes of dried nuts and black pepper. The strength build up helped the cigar to not be mundane rather attention grabbing. All in all, I would smoke one again but not in a rush to reach for more.

Personal Cigar Review: Camacho Liberty 2005 Throwback

Personal Cigar Review: Camacho Liberty 2005 Throwback

I was not impressed with the Camacho Liberty 2005 Throwback. It lacked a flavor profile that showed balance and diversity. While there was some transitioning from when the ring gauge increased and decreased, it did not deliver a complex flavor profile that could have flourished with the changes of the ring gauge from start to finish.

Team Cigar Review: Camacho Coyolar Super Toro

Team Cigar Review: Camacho Coyolar Super Toro

In remembering how the original Coyolar smoked, I would say this cigar is not as strong as that but it has more flavors than the original. Of all the Camacho offerings that have been re-released/modified since Davidoff took over, this is the closest to what the old Camacho Coyolar smoked like. A solid cigar that will do well with the old Camacho fans that loved the strong Honduran smokes.

Team Cigar Review: 2012 by Oscar Barber Pole

Team Cigar Review: 2012 by Oscar Barber Pole

In the case of the 2012 by Oscar Barber Pole, it tastes a lot more Mexican San Andres than Candela. Flavors of caramel, drying wood, leather, minerals and nuts were the main components of this cigar. I overall enjoyed the cigar's journey of sweetness to earthiness and would happily smoke this again.

Team Cigar Review: Cavalier Geneve White Series Salomones

Team Cigar Review: Cavalier Geneve White Series Salomones

The price point is fair for this cigar in terms of experience, size and smoking time. If you enjoy cigars on the milder strength side, then this is one definitely worth checking out. Flavors were enjoyable, I would just lean towards a shorter vitola.

Team Cigar Review: Camacho Diploma Special Selection

Team Cigar Review: Camacho Diploma Special Selection

Classic Camacho Honduran Corojo goodness that takes me back to the early days of Camacho. Sometimes I smoke a cigar and I am reminded of the "good old days of smoking cigars." The Camacho Diploma Special Edition is just that. The creaminess and nuttiness paired by just the right amount of spice and earth (especially in the first third) was a pleasure and one that I will smoke again and again.
