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.

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.

Team Cigar Review: Villiger La Flor de Ynclan Lancero Especial

Team Cigar Review: Villiger La Flor de Ynclan Lancero Especial

The Flor de Ynclan release in 2017 was a great cigar, but they've managed to create a Lancero that represents a peak of flavor performance. There is no doubt in my mind the Villiger La Flor de Ynclan Lancero Especial is a cigar that is going to be talked about on every top list at the end of 2018.

Team Cigar Review: La Barba Primitivo Robusto

Team Cigar Review: La Barba Ricochet Robusto

Not only is the La Barba Ricochet Robusto a great cigar for the company, it's a great cigar in general and a fantastic Mexican San Andres wrapper offering. The flavors were terrific from start to finish and it had a great bit of transitioning while remaining complex throughout.

Team Cigar Review: Mombacho Cosecha 2013

Team Cigar Review: Mombacho Cosecha 2013

The Mombacho Cosecha 2013 is without a doubt Mombacho's finest cigar release to date. While I thoroughly enjoyed the Cosecha 2012, I believe the 2013 has elevated levels of flavor complexity. You need to run, not walk, to your local B&M and buy these before they're gone.

Team Cigar Review: Hamlet Liberation

Team Cigar Review: Hamlet Liberation

The Hamlet Liberation is an enjoyable cigar but it doesn’t take that extra step to reach the next level. I felt this cigar lacked a lot of complexity, transitioning and depth; and that is what I look for in a cigar. It is fair to say that the Hamlet offerings fail to live up to my expectations/hopes.

Team Cigar Review: Cubariqueño Protocol Themis Lancero

Team Cigar Review: Cubariqueño Protocol Themis Lancero

The Cubariqueño Protocol Themis Lancero is a great example of a traditional Lancero that delivers on flavor complexity, despite the restrictions of less filler tobacco. The overall profile is medium-full with the cigar hitting medium strength at points. This cigar will be yet another hit for Cubariqueño Cigar Company.
