Team Cigar Review: Warped Maestro Del Tiempo 6102R 2020

Team Cigar Review: Warped Maestro Del Tiempo 6102R 2020

The Warped Maestro Del Tiempo 6102R 2020 had an enjoyable and engaging flavor composition through the first and second thirds. While the last third wasn't as complex, it was still quite pleasant. For me, I felt the original 2016 release had more complexity through the first and second thirds, and the final third was also one step better.

Team Cigar Review: Alec Bradley Project 40 Maduro 5.50

Team Cigar Review: Alec Bradley Project 40 Maduro 5.50

The Alec Bradley Project 40 Maduro 5.50 is a solid offering and more memorable to me than the original Project 40. It is a nice and enjoyable blend that is affordable and approachable as well. It is not overly complex, but it delivers a decent profile from start to finish.

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Robusto Intenso

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Robusto Intenso

The Davidoff Robusto Intenso delivers another balanced and complex offering in a portfolio that already has a number of winners. The last third seemed to gas out, but the first two thirds kept my palate satisfied and engaged. Setting the price point aside, I would happily smoke more Robusto Intensos if I had the opportunity.

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.
