Team Cigar Review: Caldwell Long Live the King MAD MF Corona

Team Cigar Review: Caldwell Long Live the King MAD MF Corona

The Caldwell Long Live the King MAD MF Corona is a really enjoyable cigar and a great new offering from Caldwell. Very different than the original Long Live the King. You can't go into the cigar looking for similarities to the original. Just a great cigar all around and one I will come back to down the road.

Team Cigar Review: HVC Edicion Especial 2018 Corona

Team Cigar Review: HVC Edicion Especial 2018 Corona

This HVC Edicion Especial 2018 Corona is Aganorsa Corojo done right and what I love about a well made Aganorsa cigar. The flavor count was pretty crazy, nearing ten. It's not just that the number of flavors were many, but the flavors worked very well together.

Team Cigar Review: E.P. Carrillo Encore Majestic

Team Cigar Review: E.P. Carrillo Encore Majestic

The flavor profile of the E.P. Carrillo Encore Majestic consisted of cedar, sweet cream and baking spice later transitioning to charred wood and then a pine note. The cream lost its sweetness as it went along and some mustiness joined in during the second half. I could see myself smoking more of these and would have no problem steering others towards it.

Team Cigar Review: Illusione OneOff +53 Super Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Illusione OneOff +53 Super Robusto

The first ultra premium price tagged cigar out of Illusione. The big question of course is, is it worth it? At this point in time, I'm afraid not. But the Illusione OneOff +53 Super Robusto absolutely has the potential to be great down the line.

Personal Cigar Review: La Palina Goldie Cañonazo

Personal Cigar Review: La Palina Goldie Cañonazo

The La Palina Goldie Cañonazo is a terrific size and it delivers enjoyable flavors throughout. It has depth and complexity and there is transitioning present as well. If you have loved recent Goldie releases, this will be another one to your liking.

Team Cigar Review: Crowned Heads Court Reserve XVIII Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Crowned Heads Court Reserve XVIII Robusto

The Crowned Heads Court Reserve XVIII Robusto is a proper Mexican San Andres. This wrapper has a tendency to be too earth dominant for me. But Crowned Heads did a great job of tapering the earth with some tasty notes of cherry cordials and creamy bread. That and the evolving spice led to an experience that was enjoyable from first draw to the last.

Team Cigar Review: Southern Draw Jacobs Ladder Lancero

Team Cigar Review: Southern Draw Jacobs Ladder Lancero

The Southern Draw Jacobs Ladder Lancero was a pleasurable smoking experience. The chalky cocoa and milk chocolate finish giving just the right accented spice was the key takeaway for me. Would absolutely smoke this again.

Team Cigar Review: Jeremy Jack JJ14 Lancero

Team Cigar Review: Jeremy Jack JJ14 Lancero

While this is not a true lancero, and it is classified as a lancero, it was an enjoyable super corona. The flavors were fairly consistent from start to finish, but it was a nice flavor profile that had depth. The Jeremy Jack JJ14 Lancero was rich and spicy with the wonderful qualities of AGANORSA tobacco.
