Team Cigar Review: Pier 28 Oscuro Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Pier 28 Oscuro Robusto

I almost feel like the Pier 28 Oscuro Robusto is a combination of Pier 28's Habano line and Maduro line. All in all, if you are a fan of especially the Maduro line, this should be right up your alley.

Team Cigar Review: Nat Sherman Timeless Panamericana Belicoso Fino

Team Cigar Review: Nat Sherman Timeless Panamericana Belicoso Fino

The Nat Sherman Timeless Panamericana Belicoso Fino delivered some straight forward (nuts, cedar, minerals) and unique notes (barnyard and milk cream mixture). All in all, this was a good representation of a mild cigar and some fairly easy, good identifiable flavors. A good start for me in being introduced to this brand.

Team Cigar Review: Winston Churchill Limited Edition 2019 Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Winston Churchill Limited Edition 2019 Robusto

The Winston Churchill Limited Edition 2019 Robusto is a powerful cigar and possibly the strongest Davidoff release I have smoked. It is a complex and multi-national blend which really delivers the flavors of all the tobacco involved. The transitioning between each third was fantastic and the flavors present from start to finish were stunning.

Personal Cigar Review: Plasencia Alma Fuerte Robustus

Personal Cigar Review: Plasencia Alma Fuerte Robustus

The Plasencia Alma Fuerte Robustus is quite inviting. I don't find the strength to be as much as some do with this line, but the body is definitely present and with that is a great amount of flavors. Complex with some awesome transitioning and depth throughout, the cigar will not disappoint.

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo Dantés Edición Limitada 2016

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo Dantés Edición Limitada 2016

The Montecristo Dantés Edición Limitada 2016 is not a Habanos I would gravitate to more often than not, I prefer regular production Montecristo offerings to this, but a very solid release. I would recommend this Habanos to those who have the opportunity to purchase some, and I think many would find that they smoke well in a couple years. I look forward to see how it smokes in years to come.

Team Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua Cinco Decadas El General

Team Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua Cinco Decadas El General

Like the Diademas reviewed in 2018, the Joya de Nicaragua Cinco Decadas El General is also a good cigar. Compared to the Diademas, I found the El General isn't as balanced within providing sweetness, earth and spice. But nonetheless, this is a great cigar in which I will be visiting time and time again.

Team Cigar Review: La Palina Bronze Label Robusto

Team Cigar Review: La Palina Bronze Label Robusto

In the instance of the La Palina Bronze Label Robusto, I was surprised especially by the minerals. In general, the flavors of minerals, dry red peppers, natural sweet creaminess off dried nuts was range I didn't expect and worked well. The only let down was the subpar burn in which I hope it is a one off situation. I'll gladly smoke it again even if I have to fight the burn.

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo Nicaragua Series Toro

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo Nicaragua Series Toro

After the first third, the Montecristo Nicaragua Series Toro just became average and isn't something I'd search after. It's a cigar that might do well as the flavor and strength are what most smokers could enjoy, but I prefer a bit more complexity and enjoyment. Price is a bit high, but I'd say try one out and see what you think.

Team Cigar Review: Alec Bradley Medalist Toro

Team Cigar Review: Alec Bradley Medalist Toro

In terms of what I think about the Alec Bradley Medalist Toro, the profile was a good representation on a less heavy smoking experience with notes of pencil lead minerality, cedar, bread/toast and slightly over charred coffee. This is worth a shot, especially at the low price of $6.50 MSRP per cigar.
