Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Chefs Edition 50th Anniversary

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Chefs Edition 50th Anniversary

The Davidoff Chefs Edition 50th Anniversary is a great cigar and a fantastic use of Yamasa tobacco in the filler blend and wrapper. It is complex in flavor profiles being delivered and with that is some depth and transitioning. As to be expected, Davidoff created a well constructed cigar with high quality tobacco to make for a great smoking experience.

Team Cigar Review: Southern Draw 300 Manos Habano Petit Edmundo

Team Cigar Review: Southern Draw 300 Manos Habano Petit Edmundo

The price point on the Southern Draw 300 Manos Habano Petit Edmundo is attractive and I could see this being quite popular as the flavor profile would appeal to a large number of smokers. I'd have no problem smoking more of these in the future.

Team Cigar Review: San Pedro de Macorís Ecuador Robusto

Team Cigar Review: San Pedro de Macorís Ecuador Robusto

The San Pedro de Macorís Ecuador Robusto is really an enjoyable Connecticut and one of my favorite new Ecuadorian Connecticut offerings. It has a nice flavor profile that is fairly complex and while it is not showing a lot of transitioning from start to finish, it does have some depth to it.

Team Cigar Review: Byron Serie Siglo XXI Aristócratas

Team Cigar Review: Byron Serie Siglo XXI Aristócratas

Overall, I enjoyed my experience with the Byron Serie Siglo XXI Aristócratas. For fans of softer and more subtle notes (think a more traditional Connecticut shade or Cuban cigar), this will be a good fit. The only gripe I have is, for such a long (3 hour) smoking time, there weren't enough transitions and build ups as I'd like it to have.

Team Cigar Review: Aging Room Pura Cepa Mezzo

Team Cigar Review: Aging Room Pura Cepa Mezzo

The Aging Room Pura Cepa Mezzo is a pretty good offering from the company and an interesting project being a Nicaraguan puro. I think this would be approachable to any level smoker as there are lots of things to like here. I would have no problem revisiting this cigar although the price point is a bit high.

Personal Cigar Review: RoMa Craft CroMagnon Firecracker 2018

Personal Cigar Review: RoMa Craft CroMagnon Firecracker 2018

The RoMa Craft CroMagnon Firecracker 2018 is my second experience with a Firecracker offering and they have both been positive. If you're a fan of the CroMangnon line, then smoking this is a no brainer, if you can still find them. For those that bought these, they are great shorter smokes that give you the profile you're accustomed to. I would have no problem smoking more of these.

Team Cigar Review: Blind Faith by Alec & Bradley Robsuto

Team Cigar Review: Blind Faith by Alec & Bradley Robusto

The profile on the Blind Faith by Alec & Bradley Robusto is more nuanced and subtle than many other offerings from their portfolio. The blend seems focused on sweetness, chocolate and cedar, leaving the spices and pepper to serve as accent notes. The strength was largely medium throughout with the flavors approaching medium-full at times.

Team Cigar Review: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Sin Compromiso Selección No. 5 Parejo

Team Cigar Review: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Sin Compromiso Selección No. 5 Parejo

I enjoyed the Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Sin Compromiso Selección No. 5 Parejo. I was not blown away by it, or think it was spectacular, but I enjoyed it. While it did show transitioning from start to finish, it was not the transitioning I was hoping for in the cigar. If it delivered what it had in the first third, much different story on the cigar.
