Personal Cigar Review: Platinum Nova Platinum Batch Torpedo

Personal Cigar Review: Platinum Nova Platinum Batch Torpedo

The Platinum Nova Platinum Batch Torpedo never had a profile that was beyond average, but the floral note in the first half was a nice touch. This is a pretty easy going cigar without much transition and a low strength level. This type of cigar could appeal to many smokers as this may be just what they're looking for.

Team Cigar Review: Jeremy Jack Blarney Stick

Although it's fun and festive, I admit I almost never look forward to candela cigars. They are typically too vegetal and boring in flavors for me. In the case of the Jeremy Jack Blarney Stick, I'm happy to say it wasn't entirely like this. What especially kept me engaged was the sweet tip. I'm typically quick to take a big deuce on sweet tips, but it actually worked on this cigar.

Team Cigar Review: Bombay Tobak M.Esteli Torpedo

Team Cigar Review: Bombay Tobak M.Esteli Torpedo

The Bombay Tobak M.Esteli Torpedo is a pleasant smoking experience, with the most complex portion of the profile coming through in the first third. The second and last third had moments of complexity but didn't reach the levels that it demonstrated at the start. Construction was impeccable with a perfect burn and draw experience.

Team Cigar Review: Lars Tetens Grass Big

Overall, the Lars Tetens Grass Big was quite average in regards to flavor. It would be great to give to a new smoker or someone who doesn't smoke frequently as the strength was low and the flavor profile was mellow. The burn however would frustrate anyone and unless this was a fluke, I couldn't recommend lighting this up. The price point will unfortunately keep everyone but the most curious away.

It's always a pleasant surprise when you light up a cigar and immediately know you're in for something special. I thoroughly enjoyed the Southern Draw Rose of Sharon Desert Rose, and look forward to my earliest opportunity to light one up again.

Team Cigar Review: ACID Kuba Arte

Team Cigar Review: ACID Kuba Arte

The ACID Kuba Arte is a solid offering and a nicely infused cigar from ACID. It is probably my favorite offering ever from ACID, and it is a blend that is good, but taken to a higher level with the infusion. The infusion is not over the top, but shows some natural qualities in the smoking experience.

Personal Cigar Review: My Father La Gran Oferta Torpedo

Personal Cigar Review: My Father La Gran Oferta Torpedo

Overall, the profile was quite dark with the dark wood that became charred and the strength that built from medium to medium-full. The My Father La Gran Oferta Torpedo probably isn't something I'd return to, but for those that like dark profiles with the strength to match, I could see this being something that draws them in.

Personal Cigar Review: Casa Turrent Serie 1942 Torpedo

Personal Cigar Review: Casa Turrent Serie 1942 Torpedo

The Casa Turrent Serie 1942 Torpedo is one of those good cigars where it manages to deliver layers of rich flavor from the start all the way to the nub. Given that Casa Turrent grows the San Andres wrapper themselves, it should be no surprise that the cigar ends up being a good example of the San Andres flavor profile.

Team Cigar Review: Ventura Case Study 04

Team Cigar Review: Ventura Case Study 04

The Ventura Case Study 04 is a tasty example of a complex Connecticut Shade cigar. Although the last third is not at the same level of complexity, the overall cigar experience is good. The Case Study CS/04 is medium strength and medium to medium-full in flavor.

Team Cigar Review: MBombay Classic Torpedo

Team Cigar Review: MBombay Classic Torpedo

The MBombay Classic Torpedo is on the higher cost side, but as most of the MBombay offerings, it can earn that. If you like a good dose of flavor with a lower strength level, then this is a cigar that is well worth seeking out. I'm looking forward to smoking more.
