Team Cigar Review: Balmoral Anejo XO Oscuro Rothschild Masivo

Team Cigar Review: Balmoral Anejo XO Oscuro Rothschild Masivo

I am a fan of the Balmoral Anejo XO Oscuro Rothschild Masivo and the flavor profile it delivers. It is a great example of a Mexican wrapper and produces a complex flavor profile that has depth and transitioning from start to finish. This is what a multi-nation blend should look and smoke like.

Team Cigar Review: Diamond Crown Black Diamond Marquis

Team Cigar Review: Diamond Crown Black Diamond Marquis

The dark chocolate, Asian spice and cherry notes play off of each other perfectly and the presence of those flavors throughout, and their change in dominance make for a terrific experience. I would highly recommend, and the Diamond Crown Black Diamond Marquis is a cigar I will come back to time and time again.

Team Cigar Review: Casa Cuevas Connecticut Toro

Team Cigar Review: Casa Cuevas Connecticut Toro

The Casa Cuevas Connecticut Toro is Connecticut Shade done right. Start with a nice core of sweetened cream, bread, roasted nuts and gradually introduce spice into the profile. This is no doubt my favorite line within Casa Cuevas' offerings. I highly recommend this cigar.

Team Cigar Review: Diesel Hair of the Dog Toro

Team Cigar Review: Diesel Hair of the Dog Toro

The Diesel Hair of the Dog Toro is by no means a bad cigar, but I wish they had continued with the bourbon barrel aged/sherry cask theme of their first and latest cigars. It would have been cool to have some of that tobacco in the filler with the Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper. Overall, a decent flavor profile that lacked some complexity and transitioning from start to finish.

Team Cigar Review: San Pedro de Macorís Brazil Robusto

Team Cigar Review: San Pedro de Macorís Brazil Robusto

There are a couple ways to look at the San Pedro de Macorís Brazil Robusto in my opinion. If you look at it from the perspective of a cigar that is under $6.00, this cigar is fantastic. For the money spent, you are getting a great cigar. If you look at it as a cigar without taking price into account, it is a solid smoke but nothing impressive. It has an enjoyable flavor profile, but it lacks a lot of transitioning and complexity.

Team Cigar Review: MoyaRuiz Hand Gripper

Team Cigar Review: MoyaRuiz Hand Gripper

I've heard the MoyaRuiz Hand Gripper referred to as being 'gimmicky'. When it comes to MoyaRuiz, the packaging and style is completely in keeping with the unconventional style they've had for many years. Although I rated the cigar as average overall, the flavors were still enjoyable and the medium-full intensity was in my wheelhouse.

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Revery Toro

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Revery Toro

The Davidoff Revery Toro offers a complex array of flavors. Baking spices, cedar, mushroom, chocolate and toasted earth. The construction is perfect, and so is the draw, but it's what you would expect in a cigar from Davidoff. A consistent experience from start to finish, I wouldn't hesitate to light up another Davidoff Revery if I had the opportunity.

Team Cigar Review: Señorial 65th Anniversary

Team Cigar Review: Señorial 65th Anniversary

I was a fan of the Señorial 65th Anniversary when it first came out five years ago and I have enjoyed them over the years as well. In some ways, the cigar does not seem to age to me. It is one of those cigars that smokes very similar to how it did five years ago. I keep thinking the cigar is going to be drastically different in another six months, but it isn't.

Team Cigar Review: Bombay Tobak MQBA Diadem

Team Cigar Review: Bombay Tobak MQBA Diadem

Diademas are special vitolas, so you better have a good blend when all is said and done. The Bombay Tobak MQBA Diadem may not be the type of cigar that a more seasoned smoker looks for, or one who wants more body and strength, but I found it really enjoyable. A very elegant introductory cigar.
