Tatuaje 20th RL22

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje 20th RL22

Summary words that come to mind are raw, heavy, unapologetic. The profile had a deepness in dirt grit, torched cedar and red pepper spice that pressed forward from start to finish. I would have enjoyed some more softer notes to taper all the earth heaviness. I can see guys liking this, but this Tatuaje 20th RL22 just isn't for me.

Saga Solaz Corona

Personal Cigar Review: Saga Solaz Corona

The Saga Solaz Corona started well, with a nice combination of flavors, but as the black pepper gained a tinny note in the second third, the flavor profile dropped down a level and maintained that the rest of the way. I wouldn't see myself coming back to this all that often, but it's a pretty effortless smoke with a serviceable flavor profile and I could see people gravitating towards it.

La Aroma de Cuba Connecticut Corona

Team Cigar Review: La Aroma de Cuba Connecticut Corona

The Connecticut definitely had some strength and body, and the flavors were darker than your typical Connecticut as well. It really captured that modern Connecticut. I have a feeling that the cigar will be softer in a larger format, and that may make those more appealing to me. Overall, the La Aroma de Cuba Connecticut Corona was a solid cigar.

Personal Cigar Review: FLVR Yacht Rock Corona

Personal Cigar Review: FLVR Yacht Rock Corona

The FLVR Yacht Rock Corona had a fairly average start as other than the flavor from the wrapper, the smoking experience wasn't all that intriguing. It dropped down a level from the second third on as the toast level transitioned to char and some ashiness was present. Overall, for a flavored cigar, it's about what I expect from them. Other than the pre-light and the flavor from the wrapper, you're not in for a good time and this cigar was exactly that.

Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Classic Corona

Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Classic Corona

The JRE Aladino Classic Corona offered balanced and interesting flavors that at times were up to medium-full strength but remained balanced through the majority of the cigar review. I would definitely smoke the JRE Aladino Classic Corona, especially when you factor in the approachable price point.

Team Cigar Review: Fuerte y Libre Sun Country Corona

Team Cigar Review: Fuerte y Libre Sun Country Corona

Being a cigar reviewer, I love experiences like this. An experience in which I don't know anything about the brand, the blender, the cigar factory. I love it even more when the experience turns out great, like in the case of the Fuerte y Libre Sun Country Corona. This was a great Connecticut shade, giving full flavors of all the major spectrums without being overly bitter. Nice!

Team Cigar Review: LCA Reserva Vintage 2021

Team Cigar Review: LCA Reserva Vintage 2021

The LCA Reserva Vintage 2021 had a nice start with a good combination of flavors and low strength. The second third walked the line of good/average but finished average due to the bitterness and maintained that level the rest of the way. If the cigar could have just dodged the wood bitterness, it could have been good throughout. Not sure if some time might help to alleviate that.

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Grand Cru No. 3

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Grand Cru No. 3

The Davidoff Grand Cru No. 3 is the perfect example of the White Label experience as it provides a straight forward, flavorful experience with a low strength level. The line is pricey, but it delivers on flavor and construction, so it is definitely worthwhile. I'd have no problem smoking more of these.

Personal Cigar Review: Fonseca by My Father Cosacos

Personal Cigar Review: Fonseca by My Father Cosacos

Initially when planning to review this cigar, the Fonseca by My Father Cosacos was the one I was the most interested in, but in smoking this and the Cedros, I found the Cedros to perform better. I don't see myself coming back to this vitola, but might be interested in checking out others to see if they perform more like the Cedros or if there is an even better vitola in the line.

Personal Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Maduro Corona

Personal Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Maduro Corona

The JRE Aladino Maduro Corona started with an average profile and remained that way until the final third when the heavy char knocked things down some. If you're a fan of charred wood and heavy black pepper, you'll find something you like here. I just felt it was too much and didn't provide an enjoyable version of those components.
