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

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.

Team Cigar Review: Diplomáticos Norteños Edición Regional Canadá 2018

Team Cigar Review: Diplomáticos Norteños Edición Regional Canadá 2018

The Diplomáticos Norteños Edición Regional Canadá 2018 was a great release under the brand and a terrific regional for Canada. I would definitely buy a box of these, smoking some now and aging the rest. I loved the flavor profile, it was always balanced and the flavors played off of one another perfectly.

Team Cigar Review: Rocky Patel Cigar Smoking World Championship Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Rocky Patel Cigar Smoking World Championship Robusto

The Rocky Patel Cigar Smoking World Championship Robusto was a fairly average flavor profile overall, with the most interesting components coming in the first third. Notes of cedar, powdered cocoa, baking spices and graham cracker. For a cigar that is built around slow smoking, I found the smoking time to be a stretch to make the 1 hour and 30 minute mark.

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.
