Team Cigar Review: Casa Magna Liga F Toro

Team Cigar Review: Casa Magna Liga F Toro

I enjoyed this Casa Magna Liga F Toro. I thought the flavor profile was on point in the first and second third, but it was Dominican. There may be some Nicaraguan tobacco in the blend, but this is a Dominican cigar. I am interested in trying other sizes. I can't compare it to the other Casa Magnas, probably because it has been so long since I smoked a Casa Magna, but I was pleased with so many aspects of this cigar.

Personal Cigar Review: Solitaro The Hook Toro

Personal Cigar Review: Solitaro The Hook Toro

It's always fun trying something from a new brand to see what may come about, but with this Solitaro The Hook Toro, it was a fairly average experience that ended on a bit of a down note. I don't see myself returning this cigar, but would be interested to see what future releases may come from the brand.

Team Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua Antaño Gran Reserva GT20

Team Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua Antaño Gran Reserva GT20

I enjoyed the Joya de Nicaragua Antaño Gran Reserva GT20 and the flavor profile delivered, but it lacked some complexity and depth throughout. I feel like there have been enough variations of the Antaño over the years that you can compare it somewhat to Fuente’s Opus X. This comes off as the Angel’s Share for the brand.

Personal Cigar Review: ACID 20 Toro

Personal Cigar Review: ACID 20 Toro

The ACID 20 Toro had a simple core profile most of the way and dropped down a bit in the final third as the char built up and some bitterness joined in. For non-infused smokers, I would still stay that the ACID 20 is the most approachable ACID. Other than the sweetened head, the cigar smokes as non-infused. The price is also fairly attractive.

Team Cigar Review: El Artista Buffalo Ten Connecticut

Team Cigar Review: El Artista Buffalo Ten Connecticut

$5 for an overall flavor profile that is good. This equates to buy, buy, buy. If you like all the great softer flavor notes in a good Connecticut shade with a bit more spice, the El Artista Buffalo Ten Connecticut is no doubt for you. Even if you don't, I think you should buy a fiver for only $25 to try it. Big flavors, small hit to the wallet. You really can't beat that.

Team Cigar Review: Cordoba & Morales Finca Santa Fe FSG Cameroon

Team Cigar Review: Cordoba & Morales Finca Santa Fe FSG Cameroon

I really enjoyed this blend. I thought it delivered some Cameroon and FSG qualities that I enjoy, but I believe the Cordoba & Morales Finca Santa Fe FSG Cameroon is young and needs more time to rest. I liked the balance between saltiness, sweetness and spice. The body and strength were perfect throughout, and the draw and burn were great.

Team Cigar Review: Howard G Magic Stick Habano Toro

Team Cigar Review: Howard G Magic Stick Habano Toro

The Howard G Magic Stick Habano Toro started out with an interesting medley of flavors, and was pleasant through the second and last thirds, but didn't manage to maintain the level of complexity delivered in the first third. This cigar would appeal to cigar smokers who enjoy Habano wrappers, but don't want a blend that's overly pepper or spice forward.

Team Cigar Review: Crowned Heads Las Calaveras Edición Limitada 2021 LC48

Team Cigar Review: Crowned Heads Las Calaveras Edición Limitada 2021 LC48

The Crowned Heads Las Calaveras Edición Limitada 2021 LC48 delivered a profile of intense pepper, earth and tannic wood through the review experience. None of the flavors seemed to coalesce and so I didn't find myself interested and engaged. Given that these are a yearly limited, I am disappointed in the 2021 offering.

Personal Cigar Review: E.P. Carrillo Selección Oscuro Especial No. 6

Personal Cigar Review: E.P. Carrillo Selección Oscuro Especial No. 6

It just seemed that the E.P. Carrillo Selección Oscuro Especial No. 6 ran out of gas in the second third and couldn't maintain the enjoyable profile being produced prior. The price point is very attractive, so the cigar is an easy recommend to try one to see what you think, but I don't really see myself returning to this one on any sort of regular basis.
