The Ventura Archetype Curses Robusto is an overall strong example of a classic Connecticut Broadleaf blend. If you're looking for some satisfying Broadleaf flavors, and don't want to be blown out by strength, I'd pick up an Archetype Curses.
There’s a new face and cigar on the scene at Ventura Cigar Company. Introducing PSyKo SEVEN Nicaragua by Indiana Ortez, rising cigar industry star, and daughter of tobacco industry icon Omar Ortez. Set to debut at TAA 2019, this collaboration is an addition to the popular PSyKO SEVEN brand, and offers a fresh, bold point of view from the young blender.
The Ventura Archetype Crystals Robusto delivers a light-plus strength, and medium complexity flavor experience. A desert-centric combination of baking spices and cocoa, with some cedar to bring it all together.
Ventura Cigars is pleased to announce that the Archetype Mini-series is now shipping to tobacconists all over the United States. This 3-cigar collection- Crystals, Curses, and Cloaks- was released with fanfare in July 2018 at IPCPR, and instantly caught the eyes of the industry for its unique blends and backstory. And it’s now available for consumers on their own quest for standout cigars.
The Ventura Father, Friends and Fire 2018 Limited Edition showed a great mix of milder strength but full flavored profile. It's a shame the cigar can't be bought. But I'll also say, it will be worth attending Ventura events to score this cigar.
Overall, the flavor profile of the Ventura Case Study 01 Robusto was fairly average with nothing that really kept my attention. Not my favorite in the Case Study line, but it may be something that others find attractive.
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.
The next chapter of the popular Archetype saga is set to be revealed this July, at the 2018 IPCPR show. Continuing the narrative of the hero’s journey, this three-cigar series unveils new details of the overarching story, a flavorful new tangent to be smoked and savored.
The Ventura Case Study 03 Toro is the second entry in the Case Study series I've had an opportunity to review. Like the previous Case Study, the cigar started out really well, with significant amounts of complexity that held my attention. Unfortunately, the complexity fell off in the middle third, and never managed to recapture the flavors I enjoyed so much.
