Team Cigar Review: Casa 1910 Cavalry Edition As de Oro

Team Cigar Review: Casa 1910 Cavalry Edition As de Oro

The Casa 1910 Cavalry Edition As de Oro had a nice start with a nice combination of flavors. From the second third on though, the profile was less dynamic and fairly linear and mundane. Paired with the high price point, it's not a cigar that I'd see coming back to all that often.

Team Cigar Review: Cuba Aliados Original Blend Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Cuba Aliados Original Blend Robusto

I enjoyed the Cuba Aliados Original Blend Robusto, and love the price even more. Nice blend that was approachable at many times. Not overly complex, but what was delivered was really enjoyable. Solid from beginning to end.

Team Cigar Review: ADVentura La Llorona Robusto

Team Cigar Review: ADVentura La Llorona Robusto

The ADVentura La Llorona Robusto had ranges of flavor from light to medium-full, but always seemed to be in balance. The first and second thirds delivered the most engaging flavors for me. I would smoke a La Llorona Robusto again if presented the opportunity.

Personal Cigar Review: Perla del Mar Maduro Double Toro

Personal Cigar Review: Perla del Mar Maduro Double Toro

The Perla del Mar Maduro Double Toro had an average flavor profile with a few transitions, but nothing too exciting. For a cigar of this price point, you get a long smoking time, so if you like the profile described and tend to go for cigars on the lower end of the price spectrum, this would be one to seek out.

Team Cigar Review: Red Anchor Admiral

Team Cigar Review: Red Anchor Admiral

Every once in a while, I'm reminded of why I have a profound love for cigars. The Red Anchor Admiral is not just a one box buy, it is a multiple box buy. Yes it is pricey, but the enjoyment factor outweighs the price point. Hendrik Kelner Jr, I see you.

Team Cigar Review: Quesada Manolo Quesada 75th Anniversary

Team Cigar Review: Quesada Manolo Quesada 75th Anniversary

The Quesada Manolo Quesada 75th Anniversary delivered some engaging and nuanced flavor combinations through the first and second thirds. Unfortunately, the last third became harsh and unbalanced, and I can't help but think it was due to the cigar going out. I would definitely smoke the Quesada Manolo Quesada 75th Anniversary again. It's a good representation of the kind of cigars that Quesada can blend.

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Nica Rustica Adobe Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Nica Rustica Adobe Robusto

The Drew Estate Nica Rustica Adobe Robusto had a solid first third with flavors at times reminding me of baked goods like a scone, but it couldn't maintain that level of complexity through the second and last thirds. While not unpleasant, it just didn't manage the same level of engagement. Would I smoke this again? Normally based on the score I'd say no, but the price point is absurdly approachable so I'd likely smoke these again based on price point alone.

Team Cigar Review: Howard G All Pro Series Leon Searcy Lil Searc

Team Cigar Review: Howard G All Pro Series Leon Searcy Lil Searc

I loved the flavor profile on the Howard G All Pro Series Leon Searcy Lil Searc, body and strength, and how it smoked from beginning to end. Smooth cigar with nice flavors. Core flavors throughout with some transitioning and subtle changes in complexity. Good construction. Tuna approved!

Team Cigar Review: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Mi Querida Black SakaKhan

Team Cigar Review: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Mi Querida Black SakaKhan

The Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Mi Querida Black SakaKhan was overall a good tasting experience filled with what makes Connecticut Broadleaf so good (chewy, dank, earthy). The profile was consistent without many twists and turns, but that honestly didn't matter because the core flavors were so enjoyable.
