Team Cigar Review: Illusione Singularé 2018 Turin

Team Cigar Review: Illusione Singularé 2018 Turin

I believe a little more time will do the Illusione Singularé 2018 Turin wonders even though it's still pretty good as it is now. I think revisiting it in 6 months will provide quite a treat. This is a cigar I will definitely return to and could easily recommend it to those that enjoy the profile I described. It's a blend well deserving of the Singulare name.

Team Cigar Review: 601 Blue Label Maduro Toro

Team Cigar Review: 601 Blue Label Maduro Toro

When you consider the high level review performance for Espinosa cigars, it sets a challenging bar for releases to meet. Compared to those consistently great releases, the 601 Blue Label Maduro Toro ends up being an average cigar. That isn't to say it's a bad cigar, because it is enjoyable, and the powdered cocoa flavors are going to appeal to a very broad smoking audience.

Team Cigar Review: Macanudo Inspirado Red Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Macanudo Inspirado Red Robusto

The overall conclusion of the Inspirado Red Robusto is that this is a well priced cigar delivering flavors some Equadorian Habano cigars much pricier simply cannot compete with. Given the $6 price point, this is worth at least a fiver to start with.

Team Cigar Review: Romeo San Andrés by Romeo y Julieta Toro

Team Cigar Review: Romeo San Andrés by Romeo y Julieta Toro

Heavy gritty earth, palate coating red pepper spice, charred wood all wrapped up in a medium plus strength profile sums up Romeo San Andrés by Romeo y Julieta. This is a decent heavy and dark cigar but one that is a tad mundane and typical for me.

Team Cigar Review: Southern Draw Rose of Sharon Lancero

Team Cigar Review: Southern Draw Rose of Sharon Lancero

The Southern Draw Rose of Sharon Lancero is a good cigar to try if you want more spice and earth forward delivery of a Connecticut cigar, but if you are looking for more of the traditional sweetness and cream, I'd recommend the Toro.

Team Cigar Review: The T Short Churchill

Team Cigar Review: The T Short Churchill

The first portion reminded me of the original Diesel's and after that became an average profile found in any number of cigars. I would have liked to see the first portion keep its core and transition from there to see what it could have become. As it is, I'd like to smoke another to see if this is what the cigar was meant to be or if there is something I missed.

Personal Cigar Review: Black Works Studio Killer Bee Lonsdale

Personal Cigar Review: Black Works Studio Killer Bee Lonsdale

While the Killer Bee Lonsdale is exclusively an event only offering, the flavor profile and strength levels fall neatly into the medium to medium plus category. If you're attending a Black Label Trading Company / Black Works Studio event, you would do well to pick up a few of these to try out for yourself.
