Team Cigar Review: Villiger La Vencedora Churchill

The knock on longer cigars like this Villiger La Vencedora Churchill is maintaining enjoyment from the flavor profile as long as possible and this one did pretty well. This vitola is a good offering in the line, and while it wouldn't be my first choice in vitola to pick up, I'd have no problem smoking it again.

Team Cigar Review: RoMa Craft Cromagnon EMH Don Bosco

Team Cigar Review: RoMa Craft Cromagnon EMH Don Bosco

Overall, I mainly enjoyed the first third of the RoMa Craft Cromagnon EMH Don Bosco. With a flavor profile centered around coffee beans, hay, toast and baking spices, there was nothing to dislike. But past that point, the flavors fell flat, providing mainly cedar and light baking spices. A decent offering, but not a top notch offering.

Team Cigar Review: Crux Epicure Short Salomone

Team Cigar Review: Crux Epicure Short Salomone

The interplay of red pepper spice, nuts, buttered toast and baking spices at various parts of the cigar was enjoyed quite a bit. However, the dryness that took over within the final third was the only miss. Even saying this, I prefer the Crux Epicure Short Salomone over the Robusto because the build ups and transitions are worth it over the dryness.

Team Cigar Review: Cubariqueño Protocol Double Corona

Team Cigar Review: Cubariqueño Protocol Double Corona

A rare and might I say "unicorn" of a cigar personally made for the Cubariqueño guys has a lot of clout. After smoking the Cubariqueño Protocol Double Corona, the expectations didn't quite match up, but what I can definitively say is, it is a good cigar. The only thing that it falls short on is not having that complexity build up and transitions I was seeking.

Team Cigar Review: AVO Improvisation LE19

Team Cigar Review: AVO Improvisation LE19

The AVO Improvisation LE19 starts out complex and interesting in the first third, but declines in balance and intensity as the cigar progresses. I get the impression this cigar might balance out the middle and last third given some time to rest.

Team Cigar Review: CLE Habano 70x4

Team Cigar Review: CLE Habano 70×4

CLE does Habano wrapped cigars pretty well and this was no exception. If you're OK with large ring gauge cigars, then the CLE Habano 70x4 is well worth your time. The first third burned through fairly quick, but after that, it had a longer smoking time per third. Don't expect this to be a fast smoke due to the short length.

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Robusto Real Especiales 7

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Robusto Real Especiales 7

The Davidoff Robusto Real Especiales 7 was a bit of a puzzle for me, as I found the overall flavor experience to be quite average. The first third delivered some of the typical standout notes I would expect from a Davidoff, however, once in the middle third, the flavor complexity fell off rapidly.

Team Cigar Review: Cohiba Connecticut Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Cohiba Connecticut Robusto

Given the premium price point, and listed tobacco blend, I would have expected more flavor complexity out of these. If you gravitate towards the Cohiba brand, and are a Connecticut Shade smoker, this cigar will likely appeal to you.

Team Cigar Review: Nestor Miranda Special Selection Coffee Break

Team Cigar Review: Nestor Miranda Special Selection Coffee Break

The vitola name of Coffee Break is a bit of a misnomer for this cigar as it smoked quite slow. This is a nice reintroduction of the Nestor Miranda Special Selection Coffee Break and one I'd have no problem smoking more of. If you're a fan of some strength and a nice oak focused flavor profile, then it's worth your time to seek these out.
