Team Cigar Review: Jeremy Jack JJ Forty Two

Team Cigar Review: Jeremy Jack JJ Forty Two

The Jeremy Jack JJ Forty Two was an overall average flavor profile and overall smoking experience. The cigar lacked depth and was linear the entire time. It would have helped quite a bit to have breaks from the earth and spice formula of red pepper spice and generic dry wood. Specifically, help from some sweetness and fruit would have made a big impact.

Team Cigar Review: Villiger Do Brasil Maduro Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Villiger Do Brasil Maduro Robusto

The Villiger Do Brasil Maduro Robusto showcases some of the best qualities of Brazilian tobacco. Flavors ranged from sweetness, cedar, creaminess, plum, fig, leather and earth. The strength of the cigar seemed to settle around the medium mark. I would light up another Do Brasil Maduro again, as I enjoyed the smoking experience.

Team Cigar Review: Southern Draw Private Blend Corojo No. 4 Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Southern Draw Private Blend Corojo No. 4 Robusto

I do think the Southern Draw Private Blend Corojo No. 4 Robusto was a good cigar. There is plenty of black pepper spice and heat with trailing sweetness and creaminess (less in the final third). The blend worked well and as such, I overall thought it was in the good category.

Team Cigar Review: Villiger Do Brasil Claro Robusto

The experience of the Villiger Do Brasil Claro Robusto went like this. First two thirds, wow, I am impressed by what Brazilian Connecticut shade can do. The final third, more average. This is a cigar that is packed with full flavors without much strength. I can see myself enjoying a couple as my starter cigar for the day.

Team Cigar Review: Ventura Psyko Seven Nicaragua Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Ventura Psyko Seven Nicaragua Robusto

This being the second cigar I reviewed blended by Indiana Ortez, I'm starting to really appreciate her blending style as it is focused on flavor without unnecessary strength. The Ventura Psyko Seven Nicaragua Robusto was smooth with vanilla extract like sweetness, cream, nuts, cedar and a little bit more spice kick than most Connecticut Shade wrapped cigars in the market.

Team Cigar Review: Eiroa Jamastran Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Eiroa Jamastran Robusto

I enjoyed the smoking experience of the Eiroa Jamastran Robusto. It had a wide variety of flavors, ranging from cinnamon, to coffee, spices, cedar, citrus and cocoa. While the profile at times reached medium strength, the flavors exhibited a wide range of intensity from subtle to medium.

Team Cigar Review: Diplomático by Mombacho Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Diplomático by Mombacho Robusto

The Diplomático by Mombacho Robusto is a nice addition to the portfolio for the brand and this is a cigar I'd have no problem returning to. I'd really like to pair it with the Diplomatico rum to see how they work together, but this isn't a cigar that requires a pairing as it stands up well on its own. I just hope that the construction issues don't appear in future experiences.

Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Connecticut Robusto

Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Connecticut Robusto

I liked the JRE Aladino Connecticut Robusto and thought it was a nice addition to the Aladino brand. I was not blown away by it, and would not say it is a Connecticut that you have to search out, but it is a solid release. With that being said, well priced and a nice smoking experience.

Team Cigar Review: Saga Solaz Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Saga Solaz Robusto

The Saga Solaz Robusto was an interesting cigar that served up a more classic Connecticut flavor profile with more subtle and complex notes in the first third. The second and last third became more traditional with grass and bitterness that I find most often with Connecticut blends of years ago.
