Team Cigar Review: Diamond Crown Julius Caeser Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Diamond Crown Julius Caeser Robusto

It's been a while since I've previously smoked this cigar (most likely 5+ years ago) but smoking it for review confirms my thoughts of it being a revered cigar. The flavor profile was dessert-like with some nice accented spice and wood. I look forward to smoking the next one way sooner than 5 years down the road.

Team Cigar Review: Hamlet 25th Year Salomon

Team Cigar Review: Hamlet 25th Year Salomon

The infamous Hamlet Salomon paired with a 25th year secondary band has a lot of clout. Therefore, coming into the Hamlet 25th Year Salomon, my expectations were high. Overall, the flavor profile was good with black pepper, cedar, rich nuttiness and cedar. But, with such a long smoking commitment, I expected more transitions and complex build-ups in which the cigar fell short.

Team Cigar Review: La Flor Dominicana Special Football Edition 2019

Team Cigar Review: La Flor Dominicana Special Football Edition 2019

Overall, the La Flor Dominicana Special Football Edition 2019 was fairly average and not likely something I'd want to track down more of. The cigar was released for an event, and I suppose it would work for smoking during the game as it had a long smoking time. Paired with your favorite libation during the game may provide some nice enjoyment, but on it's own, I'd pass (and it would be an incompletion).

Team Cigar Review: Casa Cuevas Habano Clásico Prensado

Team Cigar Review: Casa Cuevas Habano Clásico Prensado

As my first introduction to the brand, I enjoyed the flavor profile of the Casa Cuevas Habano Clásico Prensado. Natural cigar tobacco flavor, sharp minerals, barnyard, roasted chestnuts with a nice dose of black pepper on the retrohale are all notes pointing to a well executed Habano wrapped cigar.

Team Cigar Review: Red Meat Lovers

Team Cigar Review: Red Meat Lovers

For fans of Saka's style Connecticut broadleaf, the Red Meat Lovers will certainly not disappoint and many will be happy to find familiarity. This isn't Saka's most complex cigar, but I find it to be what Connecticut Broadleaf wrapped cigars should taste like giving milk chocolate, dry red pepper spice, pencil lead minerality and creamed sweetness.

Team Cigar Review: La Gloria Cubana Esteli Robusto

Team Cigar Review: La Gloria Cubana Esteli Robusto

The La Gloria Cubana Esteli Robusto is an interesting cigar with a flavor profile that has distinct evolution through each third. Reaching an overall flavor strength of medium-full at times, you're treated to earth, leather, toasted notes, spices, creme brulee, chocolate and baking spices.

Team Cigar Review: Nat Sherman Timeless Panamericana Belicoso Fino

Team Cigar Review: Nat Sherman Timeless Panamericana Belicoso Fino

The Nat Sherman Timeless Panamericana Belicoso Fino delivered some straight forward (nuts, cedar, minerals) and unique notes (barnyard and milk cream mixture). All in all, this was a good representation of a mild cigar and some fairly easy, good identifiable flavors. A good start for me in being introduced to this brand.

Team Cigar Review: Winston Churchill Limited Edition 2019 Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Winston Churchill Limited Edition 2019 Robusto

The Winston Churchill Limited Edition 2019 Robusto is a powerful cigar and possibly the strongest Davidoff release I have smoked. It is a complex and multi-national blend which really delivers the flavors of all the tobacco involved. The transitioning between each third was fantastic and the flavors present from start to finish were stunning.

Personal Cigar Review: Plasencia Alma Fuerte Robustus

Personal Cigar Review: Plasencia Alma Fuerte Robustus

The Plasencia Alma Fuerte Robustus is quite inviting. I don't find the strength to be as much as some do with this line, but the body is definitely present and with that is a great amount of flavors. Complex with some awesome transitioning and depth throughout, the cigar will not disappoint.
