Personal Cigar Review: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Muestra De Saka #NLMTHA

Personal Cigar Review: Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Muestra De Saka #NLMTHA

The price point on the Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust Muestra De Saka #NLMTHA is quite high, and would likely keep me from returning to this all that often. This version of the MdS is about on par with the others I have smoked. Lancero fans should give this a shot to see what they think.

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Colorado Claro Special R

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Colorado Claro Special R

When it comes to the White Labels, this Davidoff Colorado Claro Special R is where my attention leads to as this blend hits for me. The price point on the line is fairly high, but it is worth reaching for from time to time and I would recommend that anyone who hasn't tried one yet, do so.

Team Cigar Review: Padrón 1926 Serie Natural No. 2

Personal Cigar Review: Padrón 1926 Serie Natural No. 2

I know a lot of smokers clamor over this line, but to me, after I get through the initial flavor and complexity of the first third, the profile falls off a bit and becomes mundane and heavy. With the high price point and the lack of ongoing interest it provides, I don't see myself coming back to the Padrón 1926 Serie Natural No. 2 on a regular basis.

Personal Cigar Review: Arturo Fuente Hemingway Between the Lines

Personal Cigar Review: Arturo Fuente Hemingway Between the Lines

While I would probably lean towards the non-barber poles in the Hemingway line, the Arturo Fuente Hemingway Between the Lines is a nice variation. The price point is fairly high for the short smoking time, but I could see coming back to this on occasion.

Personal Cigar Review: Padrón 1964 Anniversary Series Maduro Exclusivo

Personal Cigar Review: Padrón 1964 Anniversary Series Maduro Exclusivo

I found the Padrón 1964 Anniversary Series Maduro Exclusivo to be a slighter better overall experience than the Natural, but it's still not something that really intrigues me as it is just a bit too heavy on the dark wood and earth to be enjoyable over the whole smoking experience. If you're a fan of the heavier wood and earth focused profiles, it's definitely something that may fit your wheelhouse.

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Signature 6000

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Signature 6000

While there is a large segment of the smoking population that would enjoy this cigar, the Davidoff Signature 6000 is just a bit too basic for me. With the high price point, I just don't see returning to it, but if you're a fan of mellow Connecticut shades, it will likely be right in your wheelhouse.

Team Cigar Review: Tabak Especial Negra Lonsdale

Team Cigar Review: Tabak Especial Negra Lonsdale

The Tabak Especial Negra Lonsdale was really quite basic and I didn't get much more than a light creamy coffee in the first half to really make me think this was part of the Tabak line. I'm not sure if the infusion was light on this sample or just very light on this vitola, but it just didn't hit me the way past Tabak's have.

Personal Cigar Review: Camacho Liberty 2020

Personal Cigar Review: Camacho Liberty 2020

The cigar was average throughout and started with a cedar and black pepper focused profile. This is a long standing line, but I feel that it has waned the last few years. With the experience I had, paired with the high price point, I really don't see coming back to the Camacho Liberty 2020.

Personal Cigar Review: Padrón 1964 Anniversary Series Natural Exclusivo

Personal Cigar Review: Padrón 1964 Anniversary Series Natural Exclusivo

While the Padrón 1964 Anniversary Series Natural Exclusivo is a cigar that has gained a number of accolades, to me, it just starts on a bit of a down note with the full toasted wood that builds up. It's not a complex profile and plenty of smokers enjoy this profile, but it's just not for me. I could use something else in the profile to break up the monotony of the toasted/charred wood focus.

Personal Cigar Review: Highclere Castle Victorian Robusto

Personal Cigar Review: Highclere Castle Victorian Robusto

The Highclere Castle Victorian Robusto is definitely a darker and heavier profile than the original. While it started well, it just couldn't maintain the profile and degraded as it went along. The price point is pretty high for the experience provided and I don't see myself really coming back to this one.
