Team Cigar Review: Jas Sum Kral Toothpicks 2.0 Mexican San Andrés

Team Cigar Review: Jas Sum Kral Toothpicks 2.0 Mexican San Andrés

The Jas Sum Kral Toothpicks 2.0 Mexican San Andrés was a good and consistent treat. The amount of body (think whole milk) was pretty unreal. The flavors to match the body was fitting, providing a great mixture of cream, butter, milk candy and gradual increase in cedar spice. For $6 it's a no brainer, and I see this scoring high on our year end value and budget listing.

Personal Cigar Review: Southern Draw Kudzu 2018 Perfecto

Personal Cigar Review: Southern Draw Kudzu 2018 Perfecto

The Southern Draw Kudzu 2018 Perfecto has a fairly straight forward flavor profile of cedar, cream and spice which moved to a general wood note and gained some mustiness. For fans of the brand, this is another cigar they'll likely enjoy.

Team Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua JOYA Silver Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua JOYA Silver Robusto

A great mixture of sweet and spicy all wrapped up in an attractive value of a $7 cigar. Within the last two years or so of Joya's new releases, they have proven that they just don't miss. This cigar is a winner.

Team Cigar Review: Illusione OneOff Corona

Team Cigar Review: Illusione OneOff Corona

The Illusione OneOff Corona was an overall good tasting profile but it tasted young. Not quite ready yet, but this will be something great to have a box of to smoke every few months to gauge its changing potential.

Team Cigar Review: Romeo y Julieta 1875 Nicaragua Toro

Team Cigar Review: Romeo y Julieta 1875 Nicaragua Toro

The Romeo Y Julieta 1875 Nicaragua Toro is an average, albeit pleasant light-medium bodied cigar that will be popular with the Connecticut Shade category of cigar smoker. The strength never goes beyond medium, and the flavor intensity won't scare away casual smokers. With an attractive price point, and a 2+ hour smoking time, you're getting a significant value proposition with this cigar.

Team Cigar Review: Emilio Grimalkin Toro

Team Cigar Review: Emilio Grimalkin Toro

For those that are fans of the dark flavors and strength that normally comes out of the Fabrica Oveja Negra factory, they'll find something they like in the Emilio Grimalkin Toro as it follows a similar path. I could see myself enjoying more of these from time to time.

Personal Cigar Review: RoMa Craft Aquitaine EMH Saber Tooth

Personal Cigar Review: RoMa Craft Aquitaine EMH Saber Tooth

The flavor profile of the RoMa Craft Aquitaine EMH Saber Tooth was very wood and dry earth centric along with some cream. Some heavy char was present through the middle third and then settled down to let more flavors become detectable. I would have no problem revisiting this cigar as an evening smoke paired with a nice brown spirit.

Personal Cigar Review: 1502 XO Toro

Personal Cigar Review: 1502 XO Toro

The 1502 XO Toro is a tasty cigar with a medium-full strength profile that is hidden under the balanced flavors of cocoa and spice.

Team Cigar Review: Foundation The Wise Man Maduro Churchill

Team Cigar Review: Foundation The Wise Man Maduro Churchill

In the story of the Foundation The Wise Man Maduro Churchill, the cigar showed no signs of being sharp or being rough around the edges. Flavors of Mexican hot chocolate powder, cedar and bread worked very well together, keeping my attention for the entire, longer smoke. The strength does sneak up, as by the end of the cigar, sugar was required.

Team Cigar Review: Cubariqueño Protocol Probable Cause Corona Gorda

Team Cigar Review: Cubariqueño Protocol Probable Cause Corona Gorda

Smoking through now the fourth iteration of the Probable Cause, I came into this review having somewhat of an expectation. What I tasted overall in the Cubariqueño Protocol Probable Cause Corona Gorda was a good representation of Mexican San Andres providing a profile driven by earthy grit/dirt, chocolate, baking spices, stone fruits and black coffee.
