Team Cigar Review: Davidoff The Master Selection 2007

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff The Master Selection 2007

This being the third Davidoff Master Selection reviewed (first two being 2008 and 2010), the way I see it (so far) is, all the Master Selection series deliver a supreme level of nuances, transitions and fairly complex flavors. This 2007 had moments of greatness, especially halfway through, but it is just as good as the 2008. A good cigar to celebrate with if budget allows.

Team Cigar Review: Foundation The Wise Man Maduro Churchill

Team Cigar Review: Foundation The Wise Man Maduro Churchill

In the story of the Foundation The Wise Man Maduro Churchill, the cigar showed no signs of being sharp or being rough around the edges. Flavors of Mexican hot chocolate powder, cedar and bread worked very well together, keeping my attention for the entire, longer smoke. The strength does sneak up, as by the end of the cigar, sugar was required.

Personal Cigar Review: Cattle Baron Stockyard’s

Personal Cigar Review: Cattle Baron Stockyard’s

I found the Cattle Baron Stockyard’s to offer a pretty nice flavor profile and one that maintained itself throughout and didn't really drop off in the final third like so many cigars do. Strength was medium and below the whole way, so if you're a fan of lower strength and fuller flavors, then this is a cigar to track down as you may find a new cigar to add to your rotation.

Team Cigar Review: Cubariqueño Protocol Probable Cause Corona Gorda

Team Cigar Review: Cubariqueño Protocol Probable Cause Corona Gorda

Smoking through now the fourth iteration of the Probable Cause, I came into this review having somewhat of an expectation. What I tasted overall in the Cubariqueño Protocol Probable Cause Corona Gorda was a good representation of Mexican San Andres providing a profile driven by earthy grit/dirt, chocolate, baking spices, stone fruits and black coffee.

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Art Edition 2017

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Art Edition 2017

The Davidoff Art Edition 2017 was an overall pleasure to smoke. The large 6x54 had enough peaks and valleys to keep me engaged the entire time, ranging from softness in cedar, nuts, subdued black pepper with minerals and espresso beans towards the back end of the cigar.

Team Cigar Review: Black Works Studio S&R Lancero

Team Cigar Review: Black Works Studio S&R Lancero

The Black Works Studio S&R Lancero is a nice offering in the brands portfolio and the strength, while above medium, isn't overpowering and is balanced with the flavor profile. I would have no problem smoking more of these and think fans of the brand and those that like lanceros are bound to find a favorite here.

Team Cigar Review: Ventura Case Study 01 Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Ventura Case Study 01 Robusto

Overall, the flavor profile of the Ventura Case Study 01 Robusto was fairly average with nothing that really kept my attention. Not my favorite in the Case Study line, but it may be something that others find attractive.

Team Cigar Review: Plasencia Cosecha 146 La Vega

Team Cigar Review: Plasencia Cosecha 146 La Vega

It'll be a disservice to not retrohale the Plasencia Cosecha 146 La Vega as it's the best part of it, giving full notes of dried nuts and black pepper. The strength build up helped the cigar to not be mundane rather attention grabbing. All in all, I would smoke one again but not in a rush to reach for more.

Personal Cigar Review: RoMa Craft CRAFT 2018

Personal Cigar Review: RoMa Craft CRAFT 2018

The reduction of the ring gauge as the RoMa Craft CRAFT 2018 went along definitely took me through a journey of flavor concentration. I felt like the second third was the best representation of flavors as it combined the best of the wood, mustiness, earthiness and vegetal notes.
