Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje 15th Anniversary Habano Rosado Oscuro Belicoso Fino

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje 15th Anniversary Habano Rosado Oscuro Belicoso Fino

In terms of the actual smoking experience, overall, I enjoyed the profile Tatuaje 15th Anniversary Habano Rosado Oscuro Belicoso Fino. Bolder, more rustic notes of cayenne pepper, white pepper, minerals, sharp oak and cream. Not typically the type of cigar that reminds me of Tatuaje but one worth checking out.

Team Cigar Review: Southern Draw Cedrus The Hogan

Team Cigar Review: Southern Draw Cedrus The Hogan

With the Southern Draw Cedrus The Hogan, I enjoyed the interplay of the chocolate initially being dark chocolate and eventually moving into a fudge and brownie like type of chocolate. That mixed with cedar and dry red pepper spice makes for an experience well worth searching out for, especially if you are well versed into the Southern Draw profile.

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: 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: 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.

Team Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua Antaño Gran Reserva Belicoso

The flavor and strength level started subtle and then eased higher the further I got into the cigar which is appreciated. Cedar and oak along with some baking spice made for a nice flavor profile. It was nice seeing this variation of the line and it is one that I will gladly smoke more of.
