Team Cigar Review: La Palina Goldie Laguito No. 6

Team Cigar Review: La Palina Goldie Laguito No. 6

After reviewing the La Palina Goldie Laguito No. 6, I found myself doing a comparison with the original and phenomenal releases of Laguito No. 2, No. 5, and the Especial. For me, the experience falls quite a bit short. That isn't to say it was a bad cigar, it certainly isn't, but a slightly above average experience isn't going to be enough to motivate a second purchase on a $23 cigar.

Team Cigar Review: Aganorsa Leaf Casa Fernandez Aniversario Cuban 109 Maduro

Team Cigar Review: Aganorsa Leaf Casa Fernandez Aniversario Cuban 109 Maduro

The Aganorsa Leaf Casa Fernandez Aniversario Cuban 109 Maduro was a pleasant cigar experience, with the greatest complexity coming in the first third. Given the price point and the presentation of the cigar, I was expecting at least more complexity through the second third. I would smoke this cigar again, although I might sit on it for a few months in the faint hope that the profile improves through aging.

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

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.

Personal Cigar Review: Tatuaje Cojonú 2003 Series L

If you have been a fan of the Cojonu release, you are going to love the Tatuaje Cojonú 2003 Series L and it is definitely a cigar you can smoke now and age. I know I am going to put a handful of these in my humidor to smoke when I want something pronounced and flavorful.

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

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

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.
