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.

Team Cigar Review: Foundation Charter Oak Habano Torpedo

Team Cigar Review: Foundation Charter Oak Habano Torpedo

The Foundation Charter Oak Habano Torpedo is a great example of a cigar that punches above its price point and delivers flavor complexity that is still restrained enough for the light bodied cigar smoker. I will happily return to the Charter Oak Habano.

Team Cigar Review: AVO Regional South Edition

Team Cigar Review: AVO Regional South Edition

The AVO Regional South Edition was an enjoyable cigar through the first and second thirds with the profile becoming unbalanced through the last third. The profile was markedly different than the North Edition, and did suffer from some minor burn issues.

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.
