Team Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua Selección de Torcedor 2019

Team Cigar Review: Joya de Nicaragua Selección de Torcedor 2019

Overall, I liked the flavor profile (sans the last third) of the Joya de Nicaragua Selección de Torcedor 2019. There were more softer and smoother notes to the cigar (creamy bread, cherry soft candy with trailing baking spices). That, coupled with perfection in burn and draw performance, creates an experience worth visiting.

Team Cigar Review: Mombacho Cosecha 2014

Team Cigar Review: Mombacho Cosecha 2014

For this year's Mombacho Cosecha 2014, it was a good showing, albeit not fantastic. The main issue I have with this year's release is the underlying wood bitterness constantly lingering on my palate. Without that, the other flavors are great (rich nuttiness, cedar, baking spices, red pepper spice, minerals).

Team Cigar Review: Crux Limitada Redline Toro

Team Cigar Review: Crux Limitada Redline Toro

Whenever I read Crux using their signature Nicaraguan Engañoso wrapper leaf, I know I'm in for a treat based off how much I enjoyed the original PB5 and IPCPR Limitadas. For the Redline version, I felt as if the cigar was more spice forward (red pepper spice and cedar) and didn't have as well melded of a formula as the OG PB5 and IPCPR Limitadas. But overall, it is still a good cigar and worth checking out.

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Complexion Toro

Personal Cigar Review: Davidoff Complexion Toro

The Davidoff Complexion Toro is a solid release that has an enjoyable flavor profile and a great strength and body level. I do feel the cigar would have performed much better if the first third profile was more present in the second and final, in particularly the second third, but that was not the case.

Team Cigar Review: Nat Sherman Timeless Limited Edition TAA 2019

Team Cigar Review: Nat Sherman Timeless Limited Edition TAA 2019

The Nat Sherman Timeless Limited Edition TAA 2019 is possibly the best Dominican puro I have smoked in 2019 and to be honest, one of the best cigars I have had this year as well. It was complex with great body and strength and the flavors were off the chart. There was beautiful transitioning throughout each third and the depth as well was sublime.

Team Cigar Review: Cubariqueño Protocol Jane Doe

Team Cigar Review: Cubariqueño Protocol Jane Doe

The Cubariqueño Protocol Jane Doe is medium strength with enjoyable complexity through the first and second thirds. The cigar has a range of flavors from cedar, leather, cocoa, bread, pepper, baking spices and earth. Overall, I enjoyed the Protocol Jane Doe and would happily smoke it again.

Team Cigar Review: AVO Improvisation LE19

Team Cigar Review: AVO Improvisation LE19

The AVO Improvisation LE19 starts out complex and interesting in the first third, but declines in balance and intensity as the cigar progresses. I get the impression this cigar might balance out the middle and last third given some time to rest.

Team Cigar Review: United Cigar El Tallo

Team Cigar Review: United Cigar El Tallo

The concept of the United Cigar El Tallo using all stems is interesting and the smoking experience it provided was different than most everything I've smoked before. While this cigar isn't something I'd revisit often, it is something that I would look to on occasion. I would say it's a cigar definitely worth your while in trying, if not for just the experience.

Team Cigar Review: Punch Diablo Scamp

Team Cigar Review: Punch Diablo Scamp

Overall, I felt the Punch Diablo Scamp was fairly average. For people that are a fan of AJ and like darker, fuller strength cigars, they may find an enjoyable experience. When I'm in the mood for something dark and fuller strength, I'd prefer something with a better flavor profile, so this cigar probably isn't something I'd return to with any frequency.

Team Cigar Review: Indian Motorcycle Connecticut Shade Toro

Team Cigar Review: Indian Motorcycle Connecticut Shade Toro

The Indian Motorcycle Connecticut Shade Toro is a well done Connecticut shade cigar. I would have no problem smoking more of these and would easily recommend it to those that appreciate cigars like this. The flavor is quite full without an overpowering strength to match. If you're a Connecticut shade fan, it would be worth your time to track these down.
