Team Cigar Review: Nestor Miranda Special Selection Coffee Break

Team Cigar Review: Nestor Miranda Special Selection Coffee Break

The vitola name of Coffee Break is a bit of a misnomer for this cigar as it smoked quite slow. This is a nice reintroduction of the Nestor Miranda Special Selection Coffee Break and one I'd have no problem smoking more of. If you're a fan of some strength and a nice oak focused flavor profile, then it's worth your time to seek these out.

Personal Spirit Review: Elijah Craig Single Barrel 18 Year

The Elijah Craig Single Barrel 18 Year is one of the epitomes of flavor and balance. And to do this with such an old whiskey makes it that much harder and brings a wow factor. Heaven Hill knocked this one out of the park proofing it down just right to 90 proof.

Team Cigar Review: United Cigar El Tallo

The concept of the United Cigar El Tallo using all stems is interesting and the smoking experience it provided was different than most everything I've smoked before. While this cigar isn't something I'd revisit often, it is something that I would look to on occasion. I would say it's a cigar definitely worth your while in trying, if not for just the experience.

Team Cigar Review: Oliva Gilberto Reserva Blanc Corona

Team Cigar Review: Oliva Gilberto Reserva Blanc Corona

I can't believe the Oliva Gilberto Reserva Blanc Corona is sub $6. The cigar easily smokes like twice that amount. I'd pin point this to the more traditional side of Connecticut Shade due to the dominantly creamy, sweet, nutty aspects. That, followed up with emphasized minerals, cedar and tannins all points to a Connecticut Shade done right. Best value cigar no doubt.

Team Cigar Review: Diesel Whiskey Row Sherry Cask Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Diesel Whiskey Row Sherry Cask Robusto

It shows tons of sweetness and spice. You are getting those noticeable oaky flavors along with those sweet Sherry flavors. The Diesel Whiskey Row Sherry Cask Robusto is enjoyable on it's own, but I think it was meant to be smoked with some bourbon.

Team Cigar Review: Indian Motorcycle Connecticut Shade Toro

Team Cigar Review: Indian Motorcycle Connecticut Shade Toro

The Indian Motorcycle Connecticut Shade Toro is a well done Connecticut shade cigar. I would have no problem smoking more of these and would easily recommend it to those that appreciate cigars like this. The flavor is quite full without an overpowering strength to match. If you're a Connecticut shade fan, it would be worth your time to track these down.

Team Cigar Review: Florida Sun Grown Limited Edition Trunk-Pressed Toro

Team Cigar Review: Florida Sun Grown Limited Edition Trunk-Pressed Toro

The Florida Sun Grown Limited Edition Trunk-Pressed Toro was a well executed Connecticut Broadleaf wrapped cigar. The medium plus body and strength formula worked well with the darker flavors of cocoa, minerals, baking spices and a very unique terroir mustiness/barnyard. I would definitely recommend this.

Team Cigar Review: Henry Clay War Hawk Toro

Team Cigar Review: Henry Clay War Hawk Toro

The Henry Clay War Hawk Toro is a pretty good Connecticut shade offering that has a good amount of body to it. When in the mood for a Connecticut shade, I'd have no problem with considering this cigar as one to scratch that itch. The price point is nice and this cigar brings some good value with it's flavor offering.

Team Cigar Review: Corona Cigar Nicaraguan 20th Anniversary FSG Corona Gordo

Team Cigar Review: Corona Cigar Nicaraguan 20th Anniversary FSG Corona Gordo

At times I would describe the profile as an amp'd up Connecticut Shade, but throughout the experience was complex and enjoyable. I would happily smoke more of the Corona Cigar Nicaraguan 20th Anniversary FSG Corona Gordo and I think it is a great example of a celebratory cigar release done well.

Team Cigar Review: Villiger La Meridiana Toro Box Press

Team Cigar Review: Villiger La Meridiana Toro Box Press

I enjoyed the interplay of cocoa to milk chocolate, minerals, cedar and toasted nuts of the Villiger La Meridiana Toro Box Press. Having smoked two samples for review, one sample had a considerable ripe plum note whereas the other had none of it. Regardless, both samples were good and worthy to be checked out.
