JRE Aladino Classic Elegante

Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Classic Elegante

This JRE Aladino Classic Elegante is a well blended cigar, showcasing full flavors and balance. The major components of a good cigar are all here (sweet, spice, earth). You can really taste the quality of the wrapper tobacco and I think this is a great example of letting the good tobacco speak for itself. A must try.

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Millennium Lancero Limited Edition 2023

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Millennium Lancero Limited Edition 2023

The Davidoff Millennium Lancero Limited Edition 2023 wasn't quite what I expected from Davidoff. A more intense and spicy cigar that seems to be a departure from the historical flavor combinations that Davidoff tends to blend for. The first and second thirds were the most engaging, with the last third becoming unbalanced as it heated up. I would happily smoke the Davidoff Millennium Lancero Limited Edition 2023 again if I had the opportunity.

Team Cigar Review: Sencillo Black Lancero

Team Cigar Review: Sencillo Black Lancero

Overall, the Sencillo Black Lancero was a good cigar. Bolder and rustic delivery of mala dried red pepper spice, earthy dirt grit, and softened nicely by naturally sweet and creamy mixed nuts. This isn't the type of flavor profile that I necessarily enjoy, but the delivery of the bolder flavors mixed with softer flavors was well done. And a great burning and drawing lancero to boot.

Team Cigar Review: Villiger Miami 2022 Laguito No. 1

Team Cigar Review: Villiger Miami 2022 Laguito No. 1

The Villiger Miami 2022 Laguito No. 1 is a strong addition to the Villiger lineup with balanced and restrained flavors through the first and second thirds. The last third was still pleasant but didn't harmonize as well as the rest of the cigar. With a just over light-plus strength flavor delivery, this was an enjoyable cigar that breaks up a market full of medium or stronger cigars, and I would happily seek it out to smoke again.

Personal Cigar Review: Illusione hl Candela

Personal Cigar Review: Illusione hl Candela

The Illusione hl Candela started well, with a nice combination of flavors. The second third dropped a level as the flavor profile wasn't as dynamic as it was in the first third and maintained that level the rest of the way. This is probably one of the best candela offerings on the market, but with that said, it isn't a cigar I would come back to all that frequently.

Personal Cigar Review: El Septimo Sacred Arts Collection Da Vinci

Personal Cigar Review: El Septimo Sacred Arts Collection Da Vinci

The El Septimo Sacred Arts Collection Da Vinci was enjoyable for the first inch and a half or so, and then after that, it became a bit monotonous. It was very toasted cedar and dry earth focused with none of the other components really adding anything to elevate it. All of the cigars in the series are quite pricey, so I wouldn't see myself coming back to this one, but would be up for trying some of the the offerings.

Team Cigar Review: Muga SP1014 Love n’ Passion 740

Team Cigar Review: SP1014 Love n’ Passion 740

I enjoyed the SP1014 Love n’ Passion 740. I thought this was a really nice Dominican blend that showed strength, body and flavors that you typically don't get in all Dominican blends. I don't think it will be everyone's cup of tea, but those who get behind it will really enjoy it. It is a cigar for a serious cigar smoker in my opinion. A lancero crafted for seasoned smokers who truly appreciate Lanceros. I appreciate that.

Team Cigar Review: Curivari Selección Privada Lancero

Team Cigar Review: Curivari Selección Privada Lancero

This was an enjoyable cigar, and while not overly complex, it did have a bit of transitioning throughout. In some ways, the simplest aspects of the Curivari Selección Privada Lancero made it so enjoyable. With the cigar being just a little bit larger than your standard lancero, it seemed less fragile and more of a lancero you could smoke throughout the day while handling other items.

Team Cigar Review: Adventura The Royal Return Queen’s Pearls Lancero

Team Cigar Review: Adventura The Royal Return Queen’s Pearls Lancero

I went into my first Adventura The Royal Return Queen’s Pearls Lancero with high expectations. This is a very good cigar and a great lancero. Each third was great and there was transitioning from first to final third. The cigar started strong and finished strong. With a nice body and strength level, I could smoke this lancero all the time. Of course, it is limited.

Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Habano Vintage Selection Elegante

Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Habano Vintage Selection Elegante

It is incredible what a different vitola can do for a cigar. Well, it is incredible what a ring gauge can do for a cigar. This is a blend that excels with a smaller ring gauge and stronger wrapper presence. The JRE Aladino Habano Vintage Selection Elegante was balanced throughout, but it had depth and complexity. Great burn and draw as well.
