Team Cigar Review: Southern Draw 300 Hands Maduro Petit Edmundo

Team Cigar Review: Southern Draw 300 Hands Maduro Petit Edmundo

The Southern Draw 300 Hands Maduro Petit Edmundo represents one of my favorite Maduro releases in the past few years. The story behind the project is compelling, but at the end of the day, customers are going to want something that delivers great flavor if they're going to buy it again. Fortunately, the 300 Hands Maduro delivers flavors that will have customers adding this to their regular rotation.

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Florida Selection 2018 Limited Edition

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Florida Selection 2018 Limited Edition

The Davidoff Florida Selection 2018 Limited Edition might be one of the most unique Davidoffs I have smoked and also the strongest. The cigar builds in complexity of flavors and strength as it progresses and it is in the second third that it smokes its best. If this cigar smoked like it did in the second third throughout, I think it might be one of the best cigars I smoked all year.

Team Cigar Review: Recluse Amadeus Los Cabos Toro

Team Cigar Review: Recluse Amadeus Los Cabos Toro

I know not everyone likes floral notes in their cigars, but I do, so I found the Recluse Amadeus Los Cabos Toro to be quite enjoyable. With so many vitolas in the line, I'm eager to try others to see if I can find one where the flavor profile I got from the first third can endure longer. I would have no problem going back to this cigar and look forward to doing so.

Team Cigar Review: MLB Cigar Ventures David P. Ehrlich PLM Series Toro

Team Cigar Review: David P. Ehrlich PLM Series Toro

Overall, I enjoyed the David P. Ehrlich PLM Series Toro. At times, the profile became a bit too earth driven with its dirt/soil, leather and mineral notes. But, there was enough cream and citrus to not make it overly earth dominant. I recommend this to someone that enjoys a heavier profile.

Personal Cigar Review: Saga Short Tales Tomo V L.A.V.

Personal Cigar Review: Saga Short Tales Tomo V L.A.V.

The fact that the flavor profile of the Saga Short Tales Tomo V L.A.V. was pretty enjoyable through the first two thirds while the construction was quite poor is a testament to this blend. I would love to revisit a better constructed version to see if this cigar can really shine.

Team Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua Cinco Decadas Diadema

Team Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua Cinco Decadas Diadema

The Joya de Nicaragua Cinco Decadas Diadema is a crowning achievement release from Joya de Nicaragua. Previously, the Cuatro Cinco was my favorite release they had produced. This cigar ticks every flavor box I enjoy, and is fantastically balanced. I look forward to comparing the Diadema to the El General.

Team Cigar Review: Factory Smokes Sweets by Drew Estate Toro

Team Cigar Review: Factory Smokes Sweets by Drew Estate Toro

This Factory Smokes Sweets by Drew Estate Toro has everything going against it in the eyes of the premium smoker. A $2 cigar with a flavored cap. I thought the flavor profile was good through the first half of the cigar with peppery and creamy wood. Even the flavoring added to the cigar was kind of enjoyable.

Personal Cigar Review: Casa Turrent Serie 1942 Torpedo

Personal Cigar Review: Casa Turrent Serie 1942 Torpedo

The Casa Turrent Serie 1942 Torpedo is one of those good cigars where it manages to deliver layers of rich flavor from the start all the way to the nub. Given that Casa Turrent grows the San Andres wrapper themselves, it should be no surprise that the cigar ends up being a good example of the San Andres flavor profile.
