Team Cigar Review: Napa Cigar Society Perfecto

Team Cigar Review: Napa Cigar Society Perfecto

The Napa Cigar Society Perfecto was an overall good cigar. The cigar was highly earthy, providing rich soil. In combination with the earthiness were red pepper spice and a gentle sweet and creamy nuttiness. Although most of the cigar was enjoyable, I'm unsure it is $16 enjoyable. As such, this is a grab a couple to try recommendation.

Personal Cigar Review: Tatuaje Gran Cojonú Series A

Personal Cigar Review: Tatuaje Gran Cojonú Series A

The Tatuaje Gran Cojonú Series A is an intense cigar that has body and strength. The notes of cinnamon, pepper and chocolate pair well throughout, and the currant and raisin notes at the start really add for a great opening. It has been a while since I smoked a Cojonú, but this delivers what the line is all about.

Personal Cigar Review: Herrera Estelí Miami Robusto Grande

The Herrera Estelí Miami Robusto Grande is an awesome cigar and it has a good amount of positive traits. The blend is complex, lots of depth from start to finish and there is transitioning present as well. I think this is one of the best blends Willy has done with Drew Estate, it is the best Herrera Estelí offering in my opinion, and I love that it is made in Miami.

Team Cigar Review: J.C. Newman The American No. 2

The J.C. Newman The American No. 2 is a pretty anticipated cigar and I felt it gave a good showing. Burn issues aside, I enjoyed it and would definitely smoke it again. The price point is fairly high, but can be expected with an all U.S.A. build. The smoking time was quite lengthy, so it does provide some value there.

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje 15th Anniversary Habano Rosado Oscuro Belicoso Fino

In terms of the actual smoking experience, overall, I enjoyed the profile Tatuaje 15th Anniversary Habano Rosado Oscuro Belicoso Fino. Bolder, more rustic notes of cayenne pepper, white pepper, minerals, sharp oak and cream. Not typically the type of cigar that reminds me of Tatuaje but one worth checking out.

Personal Cigar Review: Cornelius & Anthony Cornelius Lonsdale

The cigar began with a fairly potent strength level from the combination of cinnamon and black pepper. That subsided after about a half inch while the toasted wood was the primary player throughout the cigar. Some cream and mustiness joined in to run through the end of the second third and then the profile was just centered around the wood in the final third.

A tasty and unique profile through and through. The combination of meatiness and rich roasted nuttiness to my surprise worked very well off each other. This paired with just the right amount of balanced spice created a tasting profile well enjoyed and very much worth seeking out more of.
