Team Cigar Review: La Aurora 107 Nicaragua Robusto

Team Cigar Review: La Aurora 107 Nicaragua Robusto

The La Aurora 107 Nicaragua Robusto is a perfectly constructed cigar that is balanced in terms of strength and body while delivering complex flavors throughout. It is a great Nicaraguan puro for the company and one of the better Nicaraguan puros this year.

Team Cigar Review: E.P. Carrillo Pledge Prequel

Team Cigar Review: E.P. Carrillo Pledge Prequel

The E.P. Carrillo Pledge Prequel was an overall pleasant experience, with some of the best flavor combinations delivering in the second third. The presentation was fantastic, as was the construction. Overall, the profile failed to grab my attention and hold it, although I would be willing to try it in the Sojourn size to see how the blend compared.

Team Cigar Review: Camacho Nicaragua Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Camacho Nicaragua Robusto

The Camacho Nicaragua Robusto showcases some of the better flavor components from Nicaraguan tobacco. Rather than overpower you with spice and pepper, the cigar offers up baking spices, creaminess and sweetness that kept me engaged throughout the review experience. I will still continue to smoke these when I have the opportunity.

Personal Cigar Review: A.C.E. Prime M.X.S. Signature Tiago Splitter Robusto

Personal Cigar Review: A.C.E. Prime M.X.S. Signature Tiago Splitter Robusto

The A.C.E. Prime M.X.S. Signature Tiago Splitter Robusto had a nice start but as the toast level increased and the vegetal note joined, it became average and maintained that level the rest of the way. I might smoke this again, but it's not something that I'll be in a hurry to do so. For fans of candelas, I would say give this a try as it performs very similarly.

Team Cigar Review: Stolen Throne Crook of the Crown Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Stolen Throne Crook of the Crown Robusto

The Stolen Throne Crook of the Crown Robusto was an overall good experience with my favorite flavor experiences occurring in the first and second thirds. Flavor experience included cocoa, cedar, baking spices, creaminess, malt sweetness, citrus, earth and citrus rind. I would smoke another Crook of the Crown Robusto if I had the opportunity.

Personal Cigar Review: Cuban Cigar Factory Benji Menendez Robusto

Personal Cigar Review: Cuban Cigar Factory Benji Menendez Robusto

The Cuban Cigar Factory Benji Menendez Robusto started on a down note with the burning paper and just went downhill from there. Having smoked both versions from this line, I have to say they are a failure. Putting two legends names on these cigars and then delivering these blends at a high price point has me scratching my head. I have no interest in smoking this again.

Personal Cigar Review: Odyssey Maduro Robusto

Personal Cigar Review: Odyssey Maduro Robusto

The Odyssey Maduro Robusto started out fairly average, but once the char joined in the second third and continually increased, it knocked down the enjoyment a level the rest of the way. The cigar isn't going to win any value awards, but for a bundle cigar it works. If you smoke while doing other things and aren't focusing too much on the cigar, I don't see any reason why this wouldn't fit the bill.

Team Cigar Review: Patina Maduro Rustic

Team Cigar Review: Patina Maduro Rustic

I'm a bit taken back by how much I enjoyed the Patina Maduro Rustic. My experience with Patina has been for the most part lackluster. Granted the Maduro was never made at Casa Favilli, if this is an indication of all his lines tasting better as a result of the production move, I say winner, winner Patina dinner. Will not hesitate to return to this.

Team Cigar Review: Cuban Cigar Factory Manolo Quesada Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Cuban Cigar Factory Manolo Quesada Robusto

For the Cuban Cigar Factory Manolo Quesada Robusto, the cardboard started subdued but kept building to the point where it sort of ruined the other flavors. That really is too bad because there are some great flavors to the cigar. I'll put this on the back burner to revisit down the road.

Team Cigar Review: Aganorsa Leaf Supreme Leaf Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Aganorsa Leaf Supreme Leaf Robusto

The Aganorsa Leaf Supreme Leaf Robusto had a really good first third, a good second third and a fairly average last third. Flavors included baking spices, bread, red pepper flake, sweetness, cedar, creaminess and earth. I'll be smoking additional Supreme Leaf cigars because the overall experience was good and the first third was rich and complex.
