Team Cigar Review: ted's Trump Presidential Cigar

Team Cigar Review: ted’s Trump Presidential Cigar

With such a nice luxurious package (for only $8 nonetheless), the flavor delivery doesn't match up. It's more of your traditional Connecticut shade with softer notes. The ted's Trump Presidential Cigar has a good presentation, but not something I'd come back to.

Team Cigar Review: Perla del Mar Natural Perla G

Team Cigar Review: Perla del Mar Natural Perla G

The Perla del Mar Natural Perla G is a reliably good Ecuadorian Shade offering. After smoking two of these, I'm happy to say that I'd enjoy smoking these on a regular basis, especially when you factor in the price point. The flavor profile managed to balance complexity, while keeping the overall strength in the range of a typical Shade experience.

Team Cigar Review: All Saints Dedicación Berkey

Team Cigar Review: All Saints Dedicación Berkey

The All Saints Dedicación Berkey proved to be an average tasting experience for what Mexican San Andres can offer. The profile was heavily geared towards earthiness in minerals, baking spices and dry dirt. It needed more than this to make it a good cigar.

Team Cigar Review: Oscar Valladares Super Fly Connecticut

Team Cigar Review: Oscar Valladares Super Fly Connecticut Corona

I liked the Oscar Valladares Super Fly Connecticut. This is a great Honduran Connecticut wrapper. I thought the cigar was released in a great size and it delivered a solid flavor profile with transitioning taking place throughout. It had a nice body and strength level, construction was great, and priced really well. I would definitely come back to these and recommend them to many.

Team Cigar Review: Stolen Throne Crook of the Crown Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Stolen Throne Crook of the Crown Robusto

The Stolen Throne Crook of the Crown Robusto was an overall good experience with my favorite flavor experiences occurring in the first and second thirds. Flavor experience included cocoa, cedar, baking spices, creaminess, malt sweetness, citrus, earth and citrus rind. I would smoke another Crook of the Crown Robusto if I had the opportunity.

Team Cigar Review: Jas Sum Kral Fuck the FDA

Team Cigar Review: Jas Sum Kral Fuck the FDA

The Jas Sum Kral Fuck the FDA was an average tasting experience for me. The price point of this cigar is good at $10, but stacked against the plethora of Mexican San Andres available in the market, this wouldn't be my first choice.

Team Cigar Review: Nat Sherman Timeless 2020 TAA Limited Edition

Team Cigar Review: Nat Sherman Timeless 2020 TAA Limited Edition

I really enjoyed the Nat Sherman Timeless 2020 TAA Limited Edition and props to Nat Sherman for releasing two great TAA cigars, back to back. The cigar did a great job of delivering strong earth, spice and stone fruit notes, and the layers of pepper throughout were great as well. Sad to think this is probably the last time I will review a cigar by Nat Sherman.

Team Cigar Review: Cubariqueño Protocol Official Misconduct Corona Gorda

Team Cigar Review: Cubariqueño Protocol Official Misconduct Corona Gorda

The Cubariqueño Protocol Official Misconduct Corona Gorda serves as an excellent anchor blend to the other cigars Protocol already released. Overall, the flavors were consistently good from start to finish, with enough complexity in each third to maintain my interest. The burn struggled at times, although it never seemed to impact the flavor experience.

Team Cigar Review: RoMa Craft Craft 2020

Team Cigar Review: RoMa Craft Craft 2020

The RoMa Craft Craft 2020 was the first in the Craft series I've had the opportunity to smoke, but based on the experience it will not be the last. The flavors were complex, balanced and kept my attention constantly through the entire smoking experience. Quality releases such as these are why RoMa Craft has such a strong following.

Team Cigar Review: Kristoff San Andres Box-Pressed Toro TAA 2020

Team Cigar Review: Kristoff San Andres Box-Pressed Toro TAA 2020

The Kristoff San Andres Box-Pressed Toro TAA 2020 was quite interesting as it moved around quite a bit with a wide combination of flavors. The price point is fairly attractive and I could see myself coming back to this from time to time.
