Team Cigar Review: Partagas 1845 Extra Oscuro Rothschild

Team Cigar Review: Partagás 1845 Extra Oscuro Rothschild

The Partagas 1845 Extra Oscuro Rothschild really surprised me with subdued and nuanced flavors throughout. I was able to get 1 hour and 27 minutes of smoking time which was a great value. I'll be interested to see how this cigar compares in the other available vitolas.

Team Cigar Review: Ventura Slaughterhouse Natural Toro

Team Cigar Review: Ventura Slaughterhouse Natural Toro

There isn't any wow factor here, but the cigar does provide an average flavor profile through the first two thirds with a drop in the final third. Based on other cigars I've reviewed here, this score should fall in line with a fair number of cigars that are priced at twice or three times what this is. With that being said, you can have those same experiences at a discount.

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje Negociant Monopole No. 3

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje Negociant Monopole No. 3

The Tatuaje Negociant Monopole No. 3 is a cigar that had a nice mellow flavor profile along with medium strength. This would be a great morning cigar and one that I think would pair very well with coffee. I'm looking forward to smoking this again in that exact pairing scenario.

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Gusto

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Gusto

The Davidoff Gusto delivers what I love about Ecuadorian Sumatra offerings and while it is limited and pricey, it is deserving on all fronts. If you have not yet smoked them, and you can get them, I highly recommend you pick them up. If there were more Ecuadorian Sumatra offerings on the market like this, I would be a happy man!

Team Cigar Review: My Father La Opulencia Corona

Team Cigar Review: My Father La Opulencia Corona

Flavorwise, it was dominantly earth and leather with a great caramel sweetness within the first two thirds, but unfortunately tapering off within the last third. This new blend is definitely worth a try but nothing to go deep on.

Team Cigar Review: MBombay Classic Torpedo

Team Cigar Review: MBombay Classic Torpedo

The MBombay Classic Torpedo is on the higher cost side, but as most of the MBombay offerings, it can earn that. If you like a good dose of flavor with a lower strength level, then this is a cigar that is well worth seeking out. I'm looking forward to smoking more.

Team Cigar Review: Gurkha The Master Select Toro

Team Cigar Review: Gurkha The Master Select Toro

The Gurkha The Master Select already made my personal top cigar list for 2017, much to the howling and gnashing of teeth from online feedback. This is a very well performing cigar, and the price point makes it something that everyone should try for themselves.

Team Cigar Review: La Aurora 1903 Edition Cameroon Corona

Team Cigar Review: La Aurora 1903 Edition Cameroon Corona

La Aurora continues to impress me with their Cameroon wrapper offerings. The La Aurora 1903 Edition Cameroon Corona isn't overly complex but the flavors are direct and full. This type of experience is well worth the $8 MSRP charged.

Team Cigar Review: Espinosa Murcielago Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Espinosa Murcielago Robusto

This is a very nice re-introduction of the Murcielago and one I would go back to often. This would be a good evening/after dinner cigar based on the full and dark flavors along with the strength. Fans of the previous Murcielago's and those that are Espinosa fans are sure to find another favorite here.

Team Cigar Review: Winston Churchill The Late Hour Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Winston Churchill The Late Hour Robusto

The cigar began with wood and an interesting combination of cinnamon and black pepper. Later on it was focused around creamy oak and some floral and musty notes. I never did experience any of the barrel aged notes that I expected.
