Personal Cigar Review: Don Diego Special Edition Pirámide Extra

Personal Cigar Review: Don Diego Special Edition Pirámide Extra

The Don Diego Special Edition Pirámide Extra had an average flavor profile throughout. The burning paper note is something that can easily torpedo a flavor profile, but this profile did a good job of not letting it get out of hand. The price point is fair for the experience, but there are plenty of other Connecticut shade cigars I'd reach for before coming back to this one.

Team Cigar Review: Cordoba & Morales Finca Santa Fe 10th Anniversary

It's good to be reminded of Azarias' harmonious blending capabilities. I don't often smoke his brand, but after this experience, I need to think twice about that. The profile of the Cordoba & Morales Finca Santa Fe 10th Anniversary showed great balance of spice, earth, sweet and fruit. It touched on everything a good cigar should be. I look forward to having more of these.

Team Cigar Review: ATL Black Torpedo

Team Cigar Review: ATL Black Torpedo

I was pleasantly impressed with the ATL Black Torpedo. The first and second thirds provided interesting and dynamic flavor combinations that kept me engaged, and the strength levels harmonized well. The last third was still pleasant, but not quite at the same complexity levels as the rest of the cigar. I would happily smoke the Black Torpedo from ATL again.

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Year of the Tiger Limited Edition 2022

Team Cigar Review: Davidoff Year of the Tiger Limited Edition 2022

The Davidoff Year of the Tiger Limited Edition 2022 was enjoyable, and the natural comparison here is to my experience with last year's Ox release. I thought the Year of the Tiger had nuanced and balanced flavor components through the first and second third that kept my interest. The last third was average as most of that complexity fell off. I would happily smoke another Year of the Tiger Limited Edition 2022.

Personal Cigar Review: Deadwood Leather Rose

Personal Cigar Review: Deadwood Leather Rose

The Deadwood Leather Rose just gave the flavor from the wrapper at the beginning and once that mellowed, the flavors from the actual tobacco weren't that great. For the audience this is geared towards, it probably works as they may not be smoking the whole thing and the flavoring gives a possible non-smoker something to enjoy while they're puffing on a cigar.

Team Cigar Review: Diamond Crown Julius Caeser Et tu, Brute?

Team Cigar Review: Diamond Crown Julius Caeser Et tu, Brute?

The Diamond Crown Julius Caeser Et tu, Brute? had some highlights in the first third with interesting complexity, but lost most of those notes by the second third, leaving me with a fairly average experience for two thirds of the cigar. I would smoke another Et Tu Brute? again if I had the opportunity, if only to see whether the flavor performance could live up to what the first third offered.

Team Cigar Review: Diamond Crown Pyramid No. 7

Team Cigar Review: Diamond Crown Pyramid No. 7

It's been so long since I've had this cigar that I have no recollection of the taste. I just remember it being expensive. I apparently have been missing out this entire time as the Diamond Crown Pyramid No. 7 is what I enjoy out of a good Connecticut shade. Easy going with plenty of sweetness, creaminess and just the right amount of spice. I won't wait this long to enjoy another one.

Team Cigar Review: Room101 11th Anniversary

Team Cigar Review: Room101 11th Anniversary

The Room101 11th Anniversary is an LE cigar that doesn't command an astronomical price point and it's actually good. This is becoming a foreign concept lately, smoking through the various highly expensive store exclusives and other LEs. Buy this with confidence.

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo 1935 Anniversary Nicaragua No. 2

Team Cigar Review: Montecristo 1935 Anniversary Nicaragua No. 2

Typically, based on smoking experience, when I see another non-Cuban Montecristo, I assume an average experience. My assumption basically made an ass out of myself. The Montecristo 1935 Anniversary Nicaragua No. 2 was far from average, being quite complex with sweet Hawaiian bread, barnyard, herbal tea and baking spices for most of the smoking time (last third lost steam). I'll happily smoke more of these.
