Team Cigar Review: Ventura Case Study 02 Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Ventura Case Study 02 Robusto

I enjoyed the rich and robust flavors of the cigar that had the power and strength to match. Given this as our first Case Study (and successful one at that), I am now very interested to see what other cigars Ventura has dug up at other aging rooms.

In some samples, the rum barrels are more pronounced and those tend to be sweeter and creamier, but even samples which are less pronounced still deliver that flavor at a softer, less sweet level. This is really an enjoyable cigar that you need to spend some time on.

Team Cigar Review: Ventura Archetype Initiation Toro

The cigar started with a very smooth profile and as it went along, lost the cream which left a primarily oak and baking spice note. Smooth is a great descriptor for this cigar. Maybe the best Archetype I've had thus far.

Team Cigar Review: Alpha Absinthe Infused Claro Robusto

The absinthe version of the Alpha, to me, came through in the form of anise and mint. It was thankfully subtle and by no means overbearing as absinthe in itself can be. I would give it another try, which says a lot because I'm not a fan of absinthe.
