Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Corojo Reserva Toro

Team Cigar Review: JRE Aladino Corojo Reserva Toro

The JRE Aladino Corojo Reserva Toro is simply fantastic and a great addition to the Corojo Reserva line. It offers those great flavors from the Robusto in a larger format and a format that really speaks to the American market. The cigar has complexity and depth from start to finish and the transitioning is great. This cigar is hard to beat!

Team Cigar Review: Casa Cuevas Cuevas Reserva Natural Toro

Team Cigar Review: Casa Cuevas Cuevas Reserva Natural Toro

The Casa Cuevas Cuevas Reserva Natural Toro is a beautiful Connecticut that delivered complex flavors with depth from start to finish. There was transitioning and each third was unique. The balance between flavors, body and strength was great and the construction and draw were spot on.

Personal Cigar Review: HVC First Selection Limited Edition Broadleaf Toro

Personal Cigar Review: HVC First Selection Broadleaf Toro

This is what Broadleaf over Nicaraguan tobacco is all about. The HVC First Selection Broadleaf Toro is complex while showing transitioning and smoking at a medium-full level. You can't ask for more out of a Broadleaf release.

Team Cigar Review: Illusione Epernay 10th Anniversary d'Aosta

Team Cigar Review: Illusione Epernay 10th Anniversary d’Aosta

The profile of the Illusione Epernay 10th Anniversary d'Aosta kept with my experience of a smooth and flavorful profile for the line. While I wish the profile from the first half had lasted longer, it still provided a good overall experience. I would have no problem mixing this vitola in with smoking the other vitolas in the line. If you're a fan of Illusione, this is a definite must try.

Team Cigar Review: CAO Orellana

Team Cigar Review: CAO Orellana

Showing much promise within the first third, reminding me of the unique fruit sweetness of the original Amazon Basin, only to be let down for the rest of the cigar experience. Past the first third, the profile had too much repetitiveness in red pepper spice and cedar, and as a result, I found myself being bored with the CAO Orellana.

Alec Bradley Project 40 06.52

Team Cigar Review: Alec Bradley Project 40 06.52

The Alec Bradley Project 40 06.52 had a nice flavor profile through the first two thirds with some nice transitions and then dropped down bit in the final third. The price point for this vitola in combination with the flavor profile makes this a must try. It's nice to find a cigar with value like this.

Team Cigar Review: Espinosa Laranja Reserva Escuro Toro

Team Cigar Review: Espinosa Laranja Reserva Escuro Toro

The Espinosa Laranja Reserva Escuro Toro was a medium-full, at times full bodied, cigar with dark and toasted flavors that were complex without being overwhelming on the palate. I found the Laranja Reserva Escuro to be quite enjoyable and will appeal to cigar smokers who like their flavors on the darker side.

Team Cigar Review: H. Upmann Hispaniola by Jose Mendez Toro

Team Cigar Review: H. Upmann Hispaniola by Jose Mendez Toro

I like this H. Upmann Hispaniola by Jose Mendez Toro release for H. Upmann and Altadis. I loved the flavor profile that the tobacco in the cigar produced and it is definitely a cigar that many should try. It may not be for everyone, but it is worth trying out and seeing how the different types of tobacco smoke, especially the Dominican tobaccos.

Team Cigar Review: Cubariqueño Protocol Sir Robert Peel Maduro

Team Cigar Review: Cubariqueño Protocol Sir Robert Peel Maduro

I think the company has released a balanced and nuanced Limited Edition with the Cubariqueño Protocol Sir Robert Peel Maduro. The packaging is fitting of a limited release, and while the flavor profile is more reduced in intensity from their regular production cigars, I feel like it's the type of blend you want to showcase in this way.

Team Cigar Review: My Father La Promesa Toro

Team Cigar Review: My Father La Promesa Toro

The My Father La Promesa Toro has some interesting complexity in the first third of cream, baking spices, cocoa, cedar and the trademark My Father pepper. That complexity fades moving into the second third and the experience is fairly average for the remainder of the cigar.
