Team Cigar Review: Caldwell Blind Man's Bluff Maduro This is Trouble

Team Cigar Review: Caldwell Blind Man’s Bluff Maduro This is Trouble

The Caldwell Blind Man's Bluff Maduro This is Trouble kept me engaged through the first and second thirds with an interesting combination and balance of flavors. The draw and burn were fairly flawless. Based on this review experience I would add this cigar to the list of Caldwell releases I would happily smoke again.

Team Cigar Review: E.P. Carrillo Short Run Retro 2021 Short Play

Team Cigar Review: E.P. Carrillo Short Run Retro 2021 Short Play

This was a good cigar, and it was nice to see a blend like this from E.P. Carrillo again. The E.P. Carrillo Short Run Retro 2021 Short Play had nice flavors of spices, earth, wood, and the overall barnyard qualities were fantastic. It started off a little bit stronger than it finished, but I like when a cigar does that. Really was great to smoke an E.P. Carrillo Short Run offering with the original bands.

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Colorado Claro Special R

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Colorado Claro Special R

When it comes to the White Labels, this Davidoff Colorado Claro Special R is where my attention leads to as this blend hits for me. The price point on the line is fairly high, but it is worth reaching for from time to time and I would recommend that anyone who hasn't tried one yet, do so.

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Signature 6000

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Signature 6000

While there is a large segment of the smoking population that would enjoy this cigar, the Davidoff Signature 6000 is just a bit too basic for me. With the high price point, I just don't see returning to it, but if you're a fan of mellow Connecticut shades, it will likely be right in your wheelhouse.

Team Cigar Review: Solitaro The Hook Patience Limited Edition

Team Cigar Review: Solitaro The Hook Patience Limited Edition

I love finding gems like this. Coming into this Solitaro The Hook Patience Limited Edition, I didn't know anything about the brand, the blender, the factory, nothing. And to find such an overall pleasant smoking experience for $8 nonetheless was a wonderful treat. Don't sleep on this one folks.

Team Cigar Review: Cigabon

Team Cigar Review: Cigabon

When you call a cigar Cigabon and image cinnamon buns, you're making some very suggestive, high claims. Based on the first third, I can actually see it though. I can see how the sweetened bread and black pepper can resemble cinnamon rolls. But given that the following two thirds didn't match this experience, the naming convention in my opinion fails. Fun to smoke nonetheless.

Personal Cigar Review: Highclere Castle Victorian Robusto

Personal Cigar Review: Highclere Castle Victorian Robusto

The Highclere Castle Victorian Robusto is definitely a darker and heavier profile than the original. While it started well, it just couldn't maintain the profile and degraded as it went along. The price point is pretty high for the experience provided and I don't see myself really coming back to this one.

Personal Cigar Review: Stallone Cowboy Series Palomino Connecticut Robusto

Personal Cigar Review: Stallone Cowboy Series Palomino Connecticut Robusto

The Stallone Cowboy Series Palomino Connecticut Robusto was my first try of a cigar from the brand and it was a decent offering. Connecticut shade is a wrapper I like and is fairly tough to do well from my experience and this did OK. I may come back to this on occasion as the price is nice, but it wouldn't be all that frequent. It definitely has me interested enough to want to try some of the other blends in their portfolio.

Personal Cigar Review: Padrón Dámaso No. 32

Personal Cigar Review: Padrón Dámaso No. 32

It's hard to say if the loose fill of this Padrón Dámaso No. 32 is consistent through the line as I wouldn't expect it to be, but in this sample it just didn't allow the blend to show what I would think was intended. It's a tough showing for a cigar that has been beaten up by others previously and was a bit of a disappointment.

Team Cigar Review: Alec & Bradley Kintsugi Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Alec & Bradley Kintsugi Robusto

The Alec & Bradley Kintsugi Robusto was an overall average tasting experience. The overall feel was, there's nothing off-putting about the cigar and technically (burn and draw), it performed well. But I wanted more than an average array of flavors of cedar, hay and nuts. I wanted fuller flavors in spice, earth and sweetness.
