Team Cigar Review: Warped El Oso Blanco Papa

Team Cigar Review: Warped El Oso Blanco Papa

The Warped El Oso Blanco Papa was an average cigar that had a decent start, but terrible follow-up in the second and final third. Not a terrible release for Warped though given where they've been the past couple years. The cigar itself was beautiful, but it just had that average to below average quality for cigars that come out of El Titan. The price was high too for the product delivered as well.

Team Cigar Review: J.C. Newman The American President

Team Cigar Review: J.C. Newman The American President

A baller look and an overall tasty profile. I'm typically not all that excited for such a long smoking experience, as it tends to be monotonous. But, the J.C. Newman The American President showed composure throughout the vast majority of the smoking experience. Bold statement, but I think this may be worth the $20.

Team Cigar Review: Cohiba Serie M

Team Cigar Review: Cohiba Serie M

The Cohiba Serie M is the Cohiba I have been seeking for 10 plus years. This is almost a continuation of the old-school, and good La Palina Goldie offerings, but with a twist. The cigar delivered those amazing El Titan flavors, and it showed beautiful harmony between Nicaraguan and Dominican tobacco. There was complexity, depth and transitioning throughout. Packaging was amazing. Great cigar!

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

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.
