Team Cigar Review: Saga Short Tales Tomo VI: The Sixth Element: El Tabaco

Team Cigar Review: Saga Short Tales Tomo VI: The Sixth Element: El Tabaco

I don't really see Saga getting too much buzz on social media, but cigars like this Saga Short Tales Tomo VI: The Sixth Element: El Tabaco are ones that I could see having a wide appeal. Medium strength with good flavors is a good combination for many levels of smokers. I'd have no problem smoking more of these and would suggest people give them a try to see if it interests them in the line or the brand itself.

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Superior

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Superior

The Davidoff Superior is a good cigar, but I really wish the flavor profile present in the final third was present throughout. If it was, the cigar could take on that Superior title. I think it will be well received by some, but for those that are looking for a bit more complexity and lighter, more complex flavors will find it underwhelming.

Team Cigar Review: La Barba One and Only 2018 Super Toro

Team Cigar Review: La Barba One and Only 2018 Super Toro

I am a big fan of the La Barba One and Only 2018 Super Toro. It is flavor focused and a cigar that you really have to take your time on and focus on to truly enjoy. I would classify it as a cigar for connoisseurs and not just cigar smokers.

Team Cigar Review: Crowned Heads Buckeye Land

Team Cigar Review: Crowned Heads Buckeye Land

The Crowned Heads Buckeye Land is more straight forward in flavors (chocolate, black pepper, soil/dirt) but the number of flavors is not indicative of a bad cigar. Quite the contrary, it is a straight forward approach to a great tasting cigar. Between this cigar and the Court Reserve XVIII Robusto, it's safe to say Crowned Heads got Mexican San Andres on lock down this year.

Personal Cigar Review: Aganorsa Leaf Signature Series Robusto

Personal Cigar Review: Aganorsa Leaf Signature Series Robusto

Overall, the Aganorsa Leaf Signature Series Robusto was an average experience as the cigar dropped in enjoyment as it went along. I was hoping for something a bit more special from this line but it didn't materialize. For those that are fans of Aganorsa tobacco, it's worth a try to see what your thoughts are.

Team Cigar Review: Dapper Siempre Toro

Team Cigar Review: Dapper Siempre Sun Grown Toro

The Dapper Siempre Sun Grown Toro is a nice addition to the Dapper portfolio and a cigar that I could see doing very well. It would also be a good introduction to the brand for those who haven't had a chance to smoke anything from them yet. If you like wood forward profiles and some obvious transitioning, then this is a cigar to check out. I would gladly smoke more of these in the future.

Team Cigar Review: Alec Bradley Magic Toast Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Alec Bradley Magic Toast Robusto

The Alec Bradley Magic Toast Robusto brings the spiciness of the Black Market with nuances and flavor complexity that last all the way to the nub. Once the initial spice intensity fades, the cigar establishes a sweet and chocolate profile.

Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Corojo Reserva Robusto

Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Corojo Reserva Robusto

This is no doubt quality Honduran Corojo. I enjoyed the slick and oiliness of the profile a lot with the minerals, baking spices, non-sweetened cream and nuts. I would smoke the JRE Aladino Corojo Reserva Robusto again without a doubt.

Team Cigar Review: El Artista Cimarron Connecticut Robusto

Team Cigar Review: El Artista Cimarron Connecticut Robusto

For me, the El Artista Cimarron Connecticut Robusto is more towards the traditional side of Connecticut shade cigars. The baseline flavors of sweet cream and bread are notes I always welcome to any cigar. Paired with white pepper, cedar, hay, nuts and underlying bitterness rounds out to a profile in which I can enjoy any time of the day.

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Year of the Pig

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Year of the Pig

The Davidoff Year of the Pig is a strong cigar in terms of strength and it produces filling and stronger flavors as well. It has some body to it which is present from start to finish, and much more so than past Davidoff releases. If you are looking for a lighter offering that is more flavor focused like years past, this might not be your cup of tea.
