Personal Cigar Review: H. Upmann 175th Anniversary

Personal Cigar Review: H. Upmann 175th Anniversary

Overall, the H. Upmann 175th Anniversary was average throughout. I was looking forward to this specially fermented wrapper, but it was run over by the typical AJ Fernandez flavor profile which was disappointing. The flavor profile and price will likely steer me away from revisiting. I'd love to see this wrapper used by another blender just to see what it could do.

Team Cigar Review: Diplomático by Mombacho Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Diplomático by Mombacho Robusto

The Diplomático by Mombacho Robusto is a nice addition to the portfolio for the brand and this is a cigar I'd have no problem returning to. I'd really like to pair it with the Diplomatico rum to see how they work together, but this isn't a cigar that requires a pairing as it stands up well on its own. I just hope that the construction issues don't appear in future experiences.

Team Cigar Review: 7-20-4 1874 Series Toro Especial

Team Cigar Review: 7-20-4 1874 Series Toro Especial

The 7-20-4 1874 Series Toro Especial was an enjoyable and interesting smoking experience. Flavors of nuts, cocoa, cedar and sweetness defined the profile with varying combinations through the review. Overall, I rated the cigar as good, and would light up an 1874 Series Toro Especial again if I had the opportunity.

Personal Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua JOYA Copper Corona Gorda

Personal Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua JOYA Copper Corona Gorda

The Joya de Nicaragua JOYA Copper Corona Gorda started fairly average and remained that way the whole time. It's possible that the tight draw muted the flavor a bit, but what was presented were some general flavors that can be found in any number of cigars. The price point is nice for this line and would lead me to being open to trying other vitolas to see how they smoke.

Team Cigar Review: Foundation Menelik

Team Cigar Review: Foundation Menelik

The Foundation Menelik is a solid release and it is a great size. I think if you are looking for a quality Mexican offering with great AGANORSA Nicaraguan fillers, you will be pleased with the cigar. It may not be game changing, but it is another solid Mexican release to the market.

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo Espada Oscuro Guard

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo Espada Oscuro Guard

Like a lot of releases from 2019, the Montecristo Espada Oscuro Guard started out really well and slowly went downhill. A solid Montecristo, nothing to write home about, but a nice addition to a brand that already has way too many releases.

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje ME II Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje ME II Robusto

The Tatuaje ME II Robusto began well, but once the cocoa left it became fairly average and maintained that level of enjoyment the rest of the way. While I probably won't return to this cigar all that often, I would have no problem coming back to it when I'm in the mood for this style profile on occasion. If you're a fan of Tatuaje and the San Andres blends, you're likely to find something here that you enjoy.

Personal Cigar Review: Micallef Migdalia Corona Extra

Personal Cigar Review: Micallef Migdalia Corona Extra

The Micallef Migdalia Corona Extra started with a simple but nice flavor profile, but once it reached the second third it was fairly average and continued that way throughout. I liked how this cigar started, but it's probably not something I'll be in a hurry to revisit, but I'm still interested in smoking through their various lines.

Personal Cigar Review: Southern Draw 300 Hands Connecticut Coloniales

Personal Cigar Review: Southern Draw 300 Hands Connecticut Coloniales

The price point is quite attractive for this line and for those that find they like this, could be something they smoke often. For the Southern Draw 300 Hands Connecticut Coloniales, it's probably not something I'd be in a hurry to revisit, but like I mentioned, it's intrigued me enough to see if a different vitola provides more of what I'm looking for.
