Personal Cigar Review: Aganorsa Leaf Signature Selection Maduro Robusto

Personal Cigar Review: Aganorsa Leaf Signature Selection Maduro Robusto

Overall, the Aganorsa Leaf Signature Selection Maduro Robusto is a great cigar and an exciting release for the company. The cigar is rich and complex while showing balance and some transitioning throughout. The draw was perfect for the type of cigar that it is and the construction was spot on as well.

Team Cigar Review: Foundation Tabernacle CT Havana Seed #142 Lancero

Team Cigar Review: Foundation Tabernacle CT Havana Seed #142 Lancero

The Foundation Tabernacle CT Havana Seed #142 Lancero is complex from start to finish and while there may not be a lot of transitioning, what is delivered has tons of depth. The Tabernacle CT Havana Seed #142 line in general is great, but it smokes wonderfully in the Lancero format.

Team Cigar Review: Illusione Epernay 10th Anniversary d'Aosta

Team Cigar Review: Illusione Epernay 10th Anniversary d’Aosta

The profile of the Illusione Epernay 10th Anniversary d'Aosta kept with my experience of a smooth and flavorful profile for the line. While I wish the profile from the first half had lasted longer, it still provided a good overall experience. I would have no problem mixing this vitola in with smoking the other vitolas in the line. If you're a fan of Illusione, this is a definite must try.

Personal Cigar Review: Herrera Estelí Miami Robusto Grande

Personal Cigar Review: Herrera Estelí Miami Robusto Grande

The Herrera Estelí Miami Robusto Grande is an awesome cigar and it has a good amount of positive traits. The blend is complex, lots of depth from start to finish and there is transitioning present as well. I think this is one of the best blends Willy has done with Drew Estate, it is the best Herrera Estelí offering in my opinion, and I love that it is made in Miami.

Team Cigar Review: Villiger Cuellar Black Forest Toro Gordo

Team Cigar Review: Villiger Cuellar Black Forest Toro Gordo

The Villiger Cuellar Black Forest Toro Gordo is a fantastic cigar and one of the best I have smoked from Villiger in a while. They really got a great blend out of Tabacalera Palma and what a nice Mexican San Andres offering. This is definitely a maduro I will come back to down the road and one I would highly recommend.

Team Cigar Review: Kristoff JT Signature Series

Team Cigar Review: Kristoff JT Signature Series

The Kristoff JT Signature Series was a good smoking experience. Significant amount of flavor complexity through the first and second third, and average smoking experience in the last third. Strength and flavor intensity were both medium-full, so this cigar will very much appeal to the fuller bodied cigar smokers.

Team Cigar Review: RoMa Craft Baka Bantu

Team Cigar Review: RoMa Craft Baka Bantu

The first and second thirds exhibited interesting flavor complexity. Notes of baking spices, cocoa, white pepper, cedar and creaminess made for an enjoyable experience and a rating of good. Overall, I enjoyed the Baka Bantu and would smoke it again.

Southern Draw Kudzu Lustrum

Team Cigar Review: Southern Draw Kudzu Lustrum

The Southern Draw Kudzu Lustrum started like a wild horse out of the barn, with flavor intensity that didn't seem like it was going to settle down. But it did settle down and became balanced and nuanced. Overall, I found the experience to be enjoyable, and I would be happy to smoke another Kudzu Lustrum in the future.

Team Cigar Review: Jeremy Jack Prints

Team Cigar Review: Jeremy Jack Prints

The Jeremy Jack Prints had a nice start for a short time and then became young and fairly simple. It never recovered after that and was average the rest of the way. I was interested to see how the new second generations from the brand would do and this first one was a bit of a miss for me. I'm still interested in smoking through the other releases, but I likely won't be returning to this one.

Team Cigar Review: Crux Limitada Short Salomone

Team Cigar Review: Crux Limitada Short Salomone

The Crux Limitada Short Salomone has some good qualities within the opening third, but past that mark, the balance is thrown off and nuance declined. This is my least favorite of the line and will focus on the other vitolas over this one.
