Team Cigar Review: Powstanie Wojtek

Team Cigar Review: Powstanie Wojtek

The Powstanie Wojtek had a pretty simple flavor profile with not much transition, but even so, it did it well. While the price is a bit high for a cigar of this size, it provided a longer than expected smoking time, so it does provide value with the flavor delivery and smoking length. I'd be happy to smoke more of these and would have no problem recommending that others give this a try.

Team Cigar Review: ACID 20

Team Cigar Review: ACID 20

This may sound crazy, but I truly believe the infused releases to honor 20 years of ACID are some of the best new cigars released this year. The ACID 20 smoked great in terms of draw and burn, and when I was done smoking I was happy with the experience. There was no level of disappointment, but pure enjoyment. Consistent, well made, flavorful and fun.

Team Cigar Review: My Father La Promesa Toro

Team Cigar Review: My Father La Promesa Toro

The My Father La Promesa Toro has some interesting complexity in the first third of cream, baking spices, cocoa, cedar and the trademark My Father pepper. That complexity fades moving into the second third and the experience is fairly average for the remainder of the cigar.

Team Cigar Review: Southern Draw Jacobs Ladder Brimstone

Team Cigar Review: Southern Draw Jacobs Ladder Brimstone

The Southern Draw Jacobs Ladder Brimstone is a nice offering in the line, but I don't feel it reaches or goes beyond the previous iterations. The profile is dark and strong, but the dryness just took away from the overall enjoyment. For fans of the brand and the line, it's a definite try, but for my preference, I'll go with one of the previous versions.

Team Cigar Review: A.C.E. Prime A Cuban Experience El Elegante

Overall, the A.C.E. Prime A Cuban Experience El Elegante had a good flavor profile. It was a small core number of flavors, but they were good. This is my first experience with the brand and it has me interested in smoking their other offerings.

Team Cigar Review: CAO Flathead V19 Camshaft

Team Cigar Review: CAO Flathead V19 Camshaft

The CAO Flathead V19 Camshaft is a solid additional to the lineup. With interesting flavors of cedar, baking spices, sweetness, bread, molasses, earth and cinnamon combine to satisfy the palate. I found the first and second thirds to be the most satisfying with the last third to be fairly average.

Team Cigar Review: Plasencia Alma del Fuego Concepción

Team Cigar Review: Plasencia Alma del Fuego Concepción

The first third of the Plasencia Alma del Fuego Concepción really reminded me of Christmas for some reason, but after that, things became average until the final third when creamy coffee rescued the cigar from continuing to be average. I'm interested to smoke this in another vitola in hopes of seeing that first third profile last longer as I really enjoyed it. I would smoke this again and see this as a nice addition to the company portfolio.

Team Cigar Review: Lars Tetens Grass Big

Team Cigar Review: Lars Tetens Grass Big

Overall, the Lars Tetens Grass Big was quite average in regards to flavor. It would be great to give to a new smoker or someone who doesn't smoke frequently as the strength was low and the flavor profile was mellow. The burn however would frustrate anyone and unless this was a fluke, I couldn't recommend lighting this up. The price point will unfortunately keep everyone but the most curious away.

Team Cigar Review: La Aurora 115th Anniversary Regular Production Robusto

Team Cigar Review: La Aurora 115th Anniversary Regular Production Robusto

I was very pleased with the La Aurora 115th Anniversary Regular Production Robusto. It may not show a lot of transitioning between each third, but the flavor profile delivered and balance was very enjoyable. There is some depth and complexity to the cigar and the combination of cinnamon and lemon was fantastic. A solid cigar that I will enjoy in the future.
