Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje T110 Reserva Broadleaf

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje T110 Reserva Broadleaf

The Tatuaje T110 Reserva Broadleaf essentially tells me what I already know about Tatuaje. That is, Pete continues to do a fine job of using Connecticut broadleaf, highlighting nice chocolate tones and not making it overwhelmingly earthy. Not his best Connecticut broadleaf by any means, but this is a buy without hesitation.

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje MBS FK

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje MBS FK

The Tatuaje MBS FK had a just above average flavor profile that delivered for me the best experience through the first third. The format is small and approachable, and provided some interesting complications on the cigar. I might smoke this cigar again if I had the opportunity, but there are a lot of other really great Tatuaje options to choose from.

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Liga Privada Único Serie Bauhaus

Team Cigar Review: Drew Estate Liga Privada Único Serie Bauhaus

The Drew Estate Liga Privada Único Serie Bauhaus is a nice addition to the Unico Serie and for fans of the series, would definitely be worth trying to acquire some from the European market if you can track them down. I'd have no problem smoking more of these, likely in the evening after a nice meal and I could see it pairing well with a nice brown spirit of your choosing.

Team Cigar Review: VegaFina 1998 VF 50

Team Cigar Review: VegaFina 1998 VF 50

A solid short smoke. I loved the sweet and creamy pastry-like vanilla wafers note. The backing of baking spices, cedar and minerals was just enough to tie the profile together. The VegaFina 1998 VF 50 is not a complex cigar, but one of those cigar experiences where it makes you nod your head a couple times and say, "man, that was good."

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje Cabaiguan No. 52

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje Cabaiguan No. 52

If the dry earth could be blended out of this cigar, it could be a real winner. I might come back to the Tatuaje Cabaiguan No. 52 on occasion, but I'd also be interested in trying the No. 54 vitola to see what it offers. It's definitely worth a try to come back to this line and see what you think.

Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Habano Vintage Selection Rothschild

Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Habano Vintage Selection Rothschild

This was a tasty little cigar. Well balanced and full of flavors, never letting off the gas pedal from first draw to last. Minerals, baking spices, roasted chestnuts, milk creaminess and white pepper spice. Nothing to dislike about that flavor combination. I thoroughly enjoyed the JRE Aladino Habano Vintage Selection Rothschild and it's an easy recommend.

Team Cigar Review: La Unica Natural No. 400

Team Cigar Review: La Unica Natural No. 400

The La Unica Natural No. 400 was an average tasting experience. The profile felt a bit monotonous and could have used some more complexities such as greater spice. I can see myself smoking one of these in the morning with a cup of black coffee.

Team Cigar Review: Foundation Menelik

Team Cigar Review: Foundation Menelik

The Foundation Menelik is a solid release and it is a great size. I think if you are looking for a quality Mexican offering with great AGANORSA Nicaraguan fillers, you will be pleased with the cigar. It may not be game changing, but it is another solid Mexican release to the market.

Team Cigar Review: Punch Egg Roll

Team Cigar Review: Punch Egg Roll

I'm a bit taken back by how much I enjoyed the Punch Egg Roll. This was a well executed short robusto and just the right size to have all the notes pull through nicely. I hope General Cigar makes more renditions of this in the future. Maybe Spring Roll for next years release?

Team Cigar Review: Nestor Miranda Special Selection Coffee Break

Team Cigar Review: Nestor Miranda Special Selection Coffee Break

The vitola name of Coffee Break is a bit of a misnomer for this cigar as it smoked quite slow. This is a nice reintroduction of the Nestor Miranda Special Selection Coffee Break and one I'd have no problem smoking more of. If you're a fan of some strength and a nice oak focused flavor profile, then it's worth your time to seek these out.
