Personal Cigar Review: Cuban Cigar Factory Benji Menendez Robusto

Personal Cigar Review: Cuban Cigar Factory Benji Menendez Robusto

The Cuban Cigar Factory Benji Menendez Robusto started on a down note with the burning paper and just went downhill from there. Having smoked both versions from this line, I have to say they are a failure. Putting two legends names on these cigars and then delivering these blends at a high price point has me scratching my head. I have no interest in smoking this again.

For the Cuban Cigar Factory Manolo Quesada Robusto, the cardboard started subdued but kept building to the point where it sort of ruined the other flavors. That really is too bad because there are some great flavors to the cigar. I'll put this on the back burner to revisit down the road.

Team Cigar Review: Ventura Psyko Seven Nicaragua Robusto

This being the second cigar I reviewed blended by Indiana Ortez, I'm starting to really appreciate her blending style as it is focused on flavor without unnecessary strength. The Ventura Psyko Seven Nicaragua Robusto was smooth with vanilla extract like sweetness, cream, nuts, cedar and a little bit more spice kick than most Connecticut Shade wrapped cigars in the market.

Team Cigar Review: Ventura Archetype Cloaks Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Ventura Archetype Cloaks Robusto

The Connecticut Broadleaf is the clear flavor profile smoking the Ventura Archetype Cloaks Robusto. Flavors of leather, earth, cedar, black pepper, with occasional sweetness, cedar and vegetal notes. I found the flavor experience to be average with the profile missing another component to anchor it together, which would allow it to rise above the core components.

Team Cigar Review: Ventura Archetype Curses Robusto

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.
