Personal Cigar Review: Warped Serie Gran Reserva 1988

Personal Cigar Review: Warped Serie Gran Reserva 1988

Overall, the Warped Serie Gran Reserva 1988 was pretty average and dropped down in enjoyment as it went along. If you're a fan of Warped or like cedar in your cigars, it's worth a try. For me, I'll be in no hurry to revisit it, but would smoke it of one was handed to me.

Team Cigar Review: Dapper El Borracho Maduro Edmundo

Team Cigar Review: Dapper El Borracho Maduro Edmundo

I was thoroughly impressed with the Dapper El Borracho Maduro Edmundo from start to finish and totally surprised. It really delivered a great Broadleaf flavor and at the same time was not full in strength and body. On top of that, the cigar was constructed beautifully.

Team Cigar Review: Hit and Run Part Deux (Rip & Dip) Almost Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Hit and Run Part Deux (Rip & Dip) Almost Robusto

The Hit and Run Part Deux (Rip & Dip) Almost Robusto from Room 101 starts out with rich layered complexity. Unfortunately, the flavor declines as the cigar progresses becoming an average experience by the last third. It's possible the drop off from each third could indicate the cigar needs some rest for the tobaccos to marry, so I look forward to revisiting this review in 2019.

Personal Cigar Review: M by Macanudo Toro

Personal Cigar Review: M by Macanudo Toro

While the M by Macanudo Toro won't appeal to traditional premium cigar smokers, it definitely could to those that like the flavored stuff. If this cigar provided more of the advertised flavor in the smoking experience, I could see going back to it, but with the profile I experienced, I don't have any interest in revisiting it.

Team Cigar Review: Balmoral Serie Signaturas Dueto Gran Toro

Team Cigar Review: Balmoral Serie Signaturas Dueto Gran Toro

I really enjoyed the Balmoral Serie Signaturas Dueto Gran Toro and it was great to see Royal Agio team up with E.P. Carrillo. While this may not come across as a "special" or "rare" cigar, it is something different and fun, and is a cigar I would smoke quite frequently if possible. Definitely worth smoking.

Personal Cigar Review: Army of Angel's

Personal Cigar Review: Army of Angel’s

Army of Angel's is a very strong cigar. This is not going to be a cigar that many can smoke and handle, and I believe it is intended to appeal to the strong cigar lovers. I think this is the best release to the market that has had Florida Sun Grown tobacco in the blend, and I also think it is one of the best Medio Tiempo releases from AGANORSA Leaf.

Team Cigar Review: CAO Nicaragua Granada

Team Cigar Review: CAO Nicaragua Granada

The CAO Nicaragua Granada had a pretty linear profile of wood, baking spice and mustiness. Some cream was present at times along with a bit of char to the wood. Strength was below medium the whole way. While I probably won't gravitate to this cigar again, I could see it doing very well in the market.

Team Cigar Review: Cornelius & Anthony Mistress Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Cornelius & Anthony Mistress Robusto

The Cornelius & Anthony Mistress Robusto is quite a departure from other Cornelius & Anthony releases and is a cigar that is full in strength and body from start to finish. It is not just a strong cigar, it has something more to it.

Team Cigar Review: Espinosa Las 6 Provincias LHB

Team Cigar Review: Espinosa Las 6 Provincias LHB

The Espinosa Las 6 Provincias LHB is yet another example of the stronger, spicier side of Espinosa's offerings. For me, this is a post (big) dinner smoke as the spice would be better complimented after such. If you enjoy the "typical" Espinosa offering, you will no doubt enjoy this.

Personal Cigar Review: Black Label Trading Company Santa Muerte 2017 Corona Gorda

Personal Cigar Review: Black Label Trading Company Santa Muerte 2017 Corona Gorda

For those that are fans of what comes out of Fabrica Oveja Negra, they'll find something they recognize and can enjoy in the Black Label Trading Company Santa Muerte 2017 Corona Gorda. For me, the profile was a bit too linear and I would prefer a bit more complexity as I found the profile to lose my attention as it got into the second half.
