This is what Broadleaf over Nicaraguan tobacco is all about. The HVC First Selection Broadleaf Toro is complex while showing transitioning and smoking at a medium-full level. You can't ask for more out of a Broadleaf release.

Team Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua Cinco Decadas Fundador

The Joya de Nicaragua Cinco Decadas Fundador was an enjoyable cigar from start to finish. The flavor profile was well balanced with varied flavor notes of bread, spices, cocoa, citrus, clover, cedar and earth. Each third presented its own take on the flavor combination which kept my interest the entire time.

Team Cigar Review: Illusione Singularé 2019 Seven Horns

Team Cigar Review: Illusione Singularé 2019 Seven Horns

In the case of the Illusione Singularé 2019 Seven Horns, it has the baseline of what a Diademas ought to be. The cigar starts off with namely soft/white flavors, soon building up to plenty of spice and minerality, but never abandoning the soft/white flavors. This is all packaged by a building strength from medium to medium plus.

Personal Cigar Review: RoMa Craft Neanderthal LH

Personal Cigar Review: RoMa Craft Neanderthal LH

The RoMa Craft Neanderthal LH is a fantastic size and takes the line to a higher level. Even if you have been a fan of the Neanderthal line, you need to understand that this vitola is an improvement. It lets you get that great filler blend with the larger ring gauge and the pressing really helps the wrapper and the smoking experience.

Team Cigar Review: Don Lino Africa Duma

Team Cigar Review: Don Lino Africa Duma

It is great to see the Don Lino Africa Duma back, and it is a solid cigar, but I would have loved to see more Cameroon in the blend. I would love to get a little bit more Africa in a cigar that revolves around the continent. With that being said, solid and enjoyable flavors in the first and second third with a slight bit of harshness in the end.

Team Cigar Review: Illusione ~eccj~ 25th

Team Cigar Review: Illusione ~eccj~ 25th

There was depth, complexity and transitioning, and that took place from start to finish. It was balanced and simply a beautiful cigar. Yes, the burn was far from beautiful, but when you have a cigar that smokes like this and tastes great, who cares. The Illusione ~eccj~ 25th is a great release from 2019 and I am not surprised that Illusione delivers another gem to the market.

Team Cigar Review: Foundation Tabernacle CT Havana Seed #142 Lancero

The Foundation Tabernacle CT Havana Seed #142 Lancero is complex from start to finish and while there may not be a lot of transitioning, what is delivered has tons of depth. The Tabernacle CT Havana Seed #142 line in general is great, but it smokes wonderfully in the Lancero format.

Southern Draw Kudzu Lustrum

Team Cigar Review: Southern Draw Kudzu Lustrum

The Southern Draw Kudzu Lustrum started like a wild horse out of the barn, with flavor intensity that didn't seem like it was going to settle down. But it did settle down and became balanced and nuanced. Overall, I found the experience to be enjoyable, and I would be happy to smoke another Kudzu Lustrum in the future.
