Team Cigar Review: Casa 1910 Cavalry Edition As de Oro

Team Cigar Review: Casa 1910 Cavalry Edition As de Oro

The Casa 1910 Cavalry Edition As de Oro had a nice start with a nice combination of flavors. From the second third on though, the profile was less dynamic and fairly linear and mundane. Paired with the high price point, it's not a cigar that I'd see coming back to all that often.

Personal Cigar Review: Perla del Mar Maduro Double Toro

Personal Cigar Review: Perla del Mar Maduro Double Toro

The Perla del Mar Maduro Double Toro had an average flavor profile with a few transitions, but nothing too exciting. For a cigar of this price point, you get a long smoking time, so if you like the profile described and tend to go for cigars on the lower end of the price spectrum, this would be one to seek out.

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Nica Rustica Adobe Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Nica Rustica Adobe Robusto

The Drew Estate Nica Rustica Adobe Robusto had a solid first third with flavors at times reminding me of baked goods like a scone, but it couldn't maintain that level of complexity through the second and last thirds. While not unpleasant, it just didn't manage the same level of engagement. Would I smoke this again? Normally based on the score I'd say no, but the price point is absurdly approachable so I'd likely smoke these again based on price point alone.

Team Cigar Review: Howard G All Pro Series Leon Searcy Lil Searc

Team Cigar Review: Howard G All Pro Series Leon Searcy Lil Searc

I loved the flavor profile on the Howard G All Pro Series Leon Searcy Lil Searc, body and strength, and how it smoked from beginning to end. Smooth cigar with nice flavors. Core flavors throughout with some transitioning and subtle changes in complexity. Good construction. Tuna approved!

Team Cigar Review: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Mi Querida Black SakaKhan

Team Cigar Review: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Mi Querida Black SakaKhan

The Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Mi Querida Black SakaKhan was overall a good tasting experience filled with what makes Connecticut Broadleaf so good (chewy, dank, earthy). The profile was consistent without many twists and turns, but that honestly didn't matter because the core flavors were so enjoyable.

Personal Cigar Review: H. Upmann Nicaragua AJ Fernandez Heritage Toro

Personal Cigar Review: H. Upmann Nicaragua AJ Fernandez Heritage Toro

The H. Upmann Nicaragua AJ Fernandez Heritage Toro had a nice start with a vibrant set of flavors. The second third saw the vibrance wane a fair amount and maintained an average profile from that point on. The price point is attractive, but even with that, the overall smoking experience wasn't one that would bring me back to this cigar with any kind of frequency.

Team Cigar Review: Army of Angel's Connecticut Toro

Team Cigar Review: Army of Angel’s Connecticut Toro

The Army of Angel's Connecticut Toro did a great job of marrying some initially intense spice flavors with other nuances of bread, chocolate, hay, creaminess and wood. There were traditional Connecticut elements of bitterness, hay and tannins throughout so I think there's a lot here to please a wide range of cigar smokers. I would definitely reach for another Army of Angel's Connecticut Toro again.

Personal Cigar Review: Protocol Sir Robert Peel Natural Corona Gorda

Personal Cigar Review: Protocol Sir Robert Peel Natural Corona Gorda

Overall, the Protocol Sir Robert Peel Natural Corona Gorda was fairly average and the burn issues were a bit of a drawback. In comparison with the initial release in the Toro, I slightly preferred that vitola, but this line just doesn't do it for me and I don't see myself returning to this one.
