Team Cigar Review: Montecristo Ciudad de Música Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo Ciudad de Música Robusto

While I wouldn't call the Montecristo Ciudad de Música Robusto a true collaboration between blenders, it is a collaboration between brands and I would say it worked well. If you're a fan of Crowned Heads or E.P. Carrillo, it's a must try and this should be a good attraction for people to the Montecristo brand. This is a cigar well done.

The price point is fair for this cigar in terms of experience, size and smoking time. If you enjoy cigars on the milder strength side, then this is one definitely worth checking out. Flavors were enjoyable, I would just lean towards a shorter vitola.

Team Cigar Review: VegaFina Robusto Extra PigTail Añejado 7 Años

The VegaFina Robusto Extra PigTail Añejado 7 Años was a surprising pleasure to smoke. The cigar touched on all major factors of a good cigar: spice, sweetness, creaminess and earthiness, all wrapped up in a flawless burn and draw. Don't sleep on this one.

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo Epic Craft Cured Toro

The Montecristo Epic Craft Cured Toro was full of flavors that are straight to the point and focused. I typically am not all that excited to smoke a non-Cuban Montecristo (don't judge by the brand I know) but this one completely changed my perspective. Time to track down more of these.

Team Cigar Review: Pappy Van Winkle Tradition Belicoso Fino

Team Cigar Review: Pappy Van Winkle Tradition Belicoso Fino

The Pappy Van Winkle Tradition Belicoso Fino is our second vitola reviewed within this line. Looking back at the Toro format, the tasting notes of this Belicoso Fino seemed like I was smoking two different cigars. The Toro was generic in flavors whereas the Belicoso Fino was distinct and fuller in flavors. This format is no doubt the clear winner of the two.

While not a complex profile, the flavors the cigar produced were good, centering around aged and slightly spicy cedar and cream. For those that enjoy smooth flavors with a low strength level, this cigar delivers just that.

Team Cigar Review: Camacho Diploma Special Selection

Team Cigar Review: Camacho Diploma Special Selection

Classic Camacho Honduran Corojo goodness that takes me back to the early days of Camacho. Sometimes I smoke a cigar and I am reminded of the "good old days of smoking cigars." The Camacho Diploma Special Edition is just that. The creaminess and nuttiness paired by just the right amount of spice and earth (especially in the first third) was a pleasure and one that I will smoke again and again.

Team Cigar Review: Aging Room Quattro F55M Vibrato

Team Cigar Review: Aging Room Quattro F55M Vibrato

Reviewing my flavor notes, I basically just wrote about cardboard and variations of spice (baking spices and black pepper spice). These notes were too boring, especially for such a large sized cigar. If the cigar had more complexities working off the bread, coffee and nuts, this would have greatly enhanced the flavor profile. But as it stands, just an average tasting cigar.

Team Cigar Review: Jeremy Jack JJ14 Corona Gorda

Team Cigar Review: Jeremy Jack JJ14 Corona Gorda

The Jeremy Jack JJ14 shows just how far you can push the complexity of a cigar with an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, without losing the essence of Connecticut flavor. The Aganorsa tobaccos blend together in a delightful combination of flavors that never seem to overpower the palate.
