Team Cigar Review: Black Label Trading Company Super Deluxe Lancero

Team Cigar Review: Black Label Trading Company Super Deluxe Lancero

The Black Label Trading Company Super Deluxe Lancero was an enjoyable medley of cocoa, baking spices, graham cracker, creaminess, wood and leather that kept me engaged for the entire smoking experience. The pepper and toasted quality might catch some off guard, but the intensity didn't stick around for very long. I would reach for another Super Deluxe Lancero.

Team Cigar Review: Falto La Pureza

Team Cigar Review: Falto La Pureza

The Falto La Pureza is a lovely cigar and a great vitola. There is balance with the blend and complexity and transitioning. Very approachable, the flavor profile is perfect for morning, afternoon or evening. They smoke well now, but I believe they will age great. A lovely blend that was enjoyable from start to finish.

Team Cigar Review: Rojas KSG

Team Cigar Review: Rojas KSG

The Rojas KSG was a great flavorful cigar from beginning to end. The gradual increase in red pepper spice with accented semi-sweet chocolate, creamy bread and cedar made for a smoking experience that kept me engaged the entire time. This KSG has me hyped to try other Rojas offerings.

Team Cigar Review: Punch Chop Suey

Team Cigar Review: Punch Chop Suey

For the outstanding price point of sub $6, the Punch Chop Suey delivers a punch of flavors. Nice flavors of King's Hawaiian sweet bread, vanilla, minerals, cedar, black pepper in which some cigars that are 2 to 2.5x the price point can't match up to. It's only Q1 but I may have already found the value cigar of the year.

Personal Cigar Review: ADVentura The Conqueror Emperor's Edition

Personal Cigar Review: ADVentura The Conqueror Emperor’s Edition

The ADVentura The Conqueror Emperor's Edition started with a nice profile, but from the second third on, it dropped down to average. The re-lights likely played into the dropping of enjoyment. I was liking how things started and was hoping for that to continue, but it wasn't to be. The overall profile was nice and mellow with low strength, and I'm liking what I've tried from the brand.

Team Cigar Review: Foundation Tabernacle CT Havana Seed #142 Lancero

Team Cigar Review: Foundation Tabernacle CT Havana Seed #142 Lancero

The Foundation Tabernacle CT Havana Seed #142 Lancero is complex from start to finish and while there may not be a lot of transitioning, what is delivered has tons of depth. The Tabernacle CT Havana Seed #142 line in general is great, but it smokes wonderfully in the Lancero format.

Team Cigar Review: A.C.E. Prime A Cuban Experience El Elegante

Team Cigar Review: A.C.E. Prime A Cuban Experience El Elegante

Overall, the A.C.E. Prime A Cuban Experience El Elegante had a good flavor profile. It was a small core number of flavors, but they were good. This is my first experience with the brand and it has me interested in smoking their other offerings.

Personal Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Elegante

Personal Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Elegante

I enjoyed the first third and then the rest of the JRE Aladino Elegante was fairly average. With a cigar of this length, I was hoping for a little more in terms of the composition of the flavor profile and transitions. I'd have no problem smoking more of these, but I'd probably lean towards a vitola in the line with a shorter length and larger ring gauge.

Team Cigar Review: Southern Draw Jacobs Ladder Lancero

Team Cigar Review: Southern Draw Jacobs Ladder Lancero

The Southern Draw Jacobs Ladder Lancero was a pleasurable smoking experience. The chalky cocoa and milk chocolate finish giving just the right accented spice was the key takeaway for me. Would absolutely smoke this again.

Team Cigar Review: Jeremy Jack JJ14 Lancero

Team Cigar Review: Jeremy Jack JJ14 Lancero

While this is not a true lancero, and it is classified as a lancero, it was an enjoyable super corona. The flavors were fairly consistent from start to finish, but it was a nice flavor profile that had depth. The Jeremy Jack JJ14 Lancero was rich and spicy with the wonderful qualities of AGANORSA tobacco.
