Team Cigar Review: Florida Sun Grown Limited Edition Trunk-Pressed Toro

Team Cigar Review: Florida Sun Grown Limited Edition Trunk-Pressed Toro

The Florida Sun Grown Limited Edition Trunk-Pressed Toro was a well executed Connecticut Broadleaf wrapped cigar. The medium plus body and strength formula worked well with the darker flavors of cocoa, minerals, baking spices and a very unique terroir mustiness/barnyard. I would definitely recommend this.

Team Cigar Review: Villiger La Meridiana Toro Box Press

Team Cigar Review: Villiger La Meridiana Toro Box Press

I enjoyed the interplay of cocoa to milk chocolate, minerals, cedar and toasted nuts of the Villiger La Meridiana Toro Box Press. Having smoked two samples for review, one sample had a considerable ripe plum note whereas the other had none of it. Regardless, both samples were good and worthy to be checked out.

Team Cigar Review: Diesel Hair of the Dog Toro

Team Cigar Review: Diesel Hair of the Dog Toro

The Diesel Hair of the Dog Toro is by no means a bad cigar, but I wish they had continued with the bourbon barrel aged/sherry cask theme of their first and latest cigars. It would have been cool to have some of that tobacco in the filler with the Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper. Overall, a decent flavor profile that lacked some complexity and transitioning from start to finish.

Team Cigar Review: Kristoff Vengeance Toro

Team Cigar Review: Kristoff Vengeance Toro

The Kristoff Vengeance Toro had a good start but became pedestrian from the second third on. I'd like to try this in a smaller ring gauge to see what that would do to the profile. The good first third isn't enough to keep me coming back to this cigar and it probably isn't something I'd be in a hurry to revisit.

Team Cigar Review: Red Meat Lovers

Team Cigar Review: Red Meat Lovers

For fans of Saka's style Connecticut broadleaf, the Red Meat Lovers will certainly not disappoint and many will be happy to find familiarity. This isn't Saka's most complex cigar, but I find it to be what Connecticut Broadleaf wrapped cigars should taste like giving milk chocolate, dry red pepper spice, pencil lead minerality and creamed sweetness.

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo Nicaragua Series Toro

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo Nicaragua Series Toro

After the first third, the Montecristo Nicaragua Series Toro just became average and isn't something I'd search after. It's a cigar that might do well as the flavor and strength are what most smokers could enjoy, but I prefer a bit more complexity and enjoyment. Price is a bit high, but I'd say try one out and see what you think.

Team Cigar Review: Alec Bradley Medalist Toro

Team Cigar Review: Alec Bradley Medalist Toro

In terms of what I think about the Alec Bradley Medalist Toro, the profile was a good representation on a less heavy smoking experience with notes of pencil lead minerality, cedar, bread/toast and slightly over charred coffee. This is worth a shot, especially at the low price of $6.50 MSRP per cigar.

Personal Cigar Review: La Aurora Preferidos Hors d'Age 2017 Toro

Personal Cigar Review: La Aurora Preferidos Hors d’Age 2017 Toro

This was a fantastic La Aurora offering and classic to the brand. Lots of tobacco used, great flavors and solid body and strength that did not get in the way of the flavors. I would definitely recommend the La Aurora Preferidos Hors d'Age 2017 Toro to all the smokers out there.

Team Cigar Review: La Barba One and Only 2018 Super Toro

Team Cigar Review: La Barba One and Only 2018 Super Toro

I am a big fan of the La Barba One and Only 2018 Super Toro. It is flavor focused and a cigar that you really have to take your time on and focus on to truly enjoy. I would classify it as a cigar for connoisseurs and not just cigar smokers.
