Team Cigar Review: Eiroa Dark 50x5

Team Cigar Review: Eiroa Dark 50×5

I enjoyed the Eiroa Dark 50x5 quite a bit and look forward to smoking more. This is a great new addition to the Eiroa portfolio and I'd have no problem recommending this to others.

Team Cigar Review: Quesada 1974 Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Quesada 1974 Robusto

The Quesada 1974 Robusto was an overall average tasting cigar with very good construction. The first third's slick and oily delivery of baking spices, minerals and bread was a good starting point. However, as the cigar continued, it mainly became the same spice and earth character without the bread to break up the monotony. Purchase a couple to try, but probably no more than that.

Team Cigar Review: San Pedro de Macorís Sun Grown Robusto

Team Cigar Review: San Pedro de Macorís Sun Grown Robusto

The San Pedro de Macorís Sun Grown Robusto is an enjoyable offering and a solid blend. I like how the wrapper works on the cigar and the flavors delivered throughout are enjoyable. With the price tag of this cigar and all of the San Pedro offerings, these are box purchase smokes.

Team Cigar Review: San Pedro de Macorís Nicaragua Robusto

Team Cigar Review: San Pedro de Macorís Nicaragua Robusto

The San Pedro de Macorís Nicaragua Robusto had a rich and nuanced first and second third with balanced and enjoyable flavors. The last third lost most of the cigars complexity and was almost entirely driven by cedar flavors. This is another solid performer in the San Pedro line and I think Royal Agio is poised to clean up on the value category this year.

Team Cigar Review: La Aurora 1985 Maduro Robusto

Team Cigar Review: La Aurora 1985 Maduro Robusto

The La Aurora 1985 Maduro Robusto was a great cigar that delivered on so many levels. There is a lot to be impressed with in this cigar, and another great quality is how well it shows that La Aurora knows how to work with so many different types of tobacco in so many blends.

Team Cigar Review: Diesel Whiskey Row Sherry Cask Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Diesel Whiskey Row Sherry Cask Robusto

It shows tons of sweetness and spice. You are getting those noticeable oaky flavors along with those sweet Sherry flavors. The Diesel Whiskey Row Sherry Cask Robusto is enjoyable on it's own, but I think it was meant to be smoked with some bourbon.

Personal Cigar Review: Black Label Trading Company Shere Khan

Personal Cigar Review: Black Label Trading Company Shere Khan

I'd have no problem smoking this again, but doubt I'll be able to get my hands on another one. The profile of a rare cigar like this should make you want to go back to it which the Black Label Trading Company Shere Khan achieved. Try it if you can find it.

Team Cigar Review: Ventura Archetype Cloaks Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Ventura Archetype Cloaks Robusto

The Connecticut Broadleaf is the clear flavor profile smoking the Ventura Archetype Cloaks Robusto. Flavors of leather, earth, cedar, black pepper, with occasional sweetness, cedar and vegetal notes. I found the flavor experience to be average with the profile missing another component to anchor it together, which would allow it to rise above the core components.

Team Cigar Review: Jas Sum Kral Toothpicks 2.0 Habano

Team Cigar Review: Jas Sum Kral Toothpicks 2.0 Habano

Thinking about my overall experience with the Jas Sum Kral Toothpicks 2.0 Habano, I say it's good. There really isn't anything inherently bad or great about the cigar. The flavors basically hit most of the major components for me (spice, sweetness, earth).

Personal Cigar Review: Shore Thing Exclusive by Crowned Heads

Personal Cigar Review: Shore Thing Exclusive by Crowned Heads

Overall, the profile of the Shore Thing Exclusive by Crowned Heads was average, even with its uniqueness. The price point is quite high, but for a store exclusive, I can understand some reasoning to it, I just don't feel the experience earns it. If you're a Crowned Heads fan and have a chance to grab one, you should go for it, but it won't drive me to seek more out.
