Team Cigar Review: Casa Cuevas Cuevas Reserva Natural Toro

Team Cigar Review: Casa Cuevas Cuevas Reserva Natural Toro

The Casa Cuevas Cuevas Reserva Natural Toro is a beautiful Connecticut that delivered complex flavors with depth from start to finish. There was transitioning and each third was unique. The balance between flavors, body and strength was great and the construction and draw were spot on.

Team Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua Cinco Decadas Fundador

Team Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua Cinco Decadas Fundador

The Joya de Nicaragua Cinco Decadas Fundador was an enjoyable cigar from start to finish. The flavor profile was well balanced with varied flavor notes of bread, spices, cocoa, citrus, clover, cedar and earth. Each third presented its own take on the flavor combination which kept my interest the entire time.

Team Cigar Review: Illusione Singularé 2019 Seven Horns

Team Cigar Review: Illusione Singularé 2019 Seven Horns

In the case of the Illusione Singularé 2019 Seven Horns, it has the baseline of what a Diademas ought to be. The cigar starts off with namely soft/white flavors, soon building up to plenty of spice and minerality, but never abandoning the soft/white flavors. This is all packaged by a building strength from medium to medium plus.

Team Cigar Review: Bombay Tobak M.Esteli Torpedo

Team Cigar Review: Bombay Tobak M.Esteli Torpedo

The Bombay Tobak M.Esteli Torpedo is a pleasant smoking experience, with the most complex portion of the profile coming through in the first third. The second and last third had moments of complexity but didn't reach the levels that it demonstrated at the start. Construction was impeccable with a perfect burn and draw experience.

Team Cigar Review: Illusione ~eccj~ 25th

Team Cigar Review: Illusione ~eccj~ 25th

There was depth, complexity and transitioning, and that took place from start to finish. It was balanced and simply a beautiful cigar. Yes, the burn was far from beautiful, but when you have a cigar that smokes like this and tastes great, who cares. The Illusione ~eccj~ 25th is a great release from 2019 and I am not surprised that Illusione delivers another gem to the market.

Team Cigar Review: Illusione Epernay 10th Anniversary d'Aosta

Team Cigar Review: Illusione Epernay 10th Anniversary d’Aosta

The profile of the Illusione Epernay 10th Anniversary d'Aosta kept with my experience of a smooth and flavorful profile for the line. While I wish the profile from the first half had lasted longer, it still provided a good overall experience. I would have no problem mixing this vitola in with smoking the other vitolas in the line. If you're a fan of Illusione, this is a definite must try.
