Team Cigar Review: Ventura Slaughterhouse Natural Toro

Team Cigar Review: Ventura Slaughterhouse Natural Toro

There isn't any wow factor here, but the cigar does provide an average flavor profile through the first two thirds with a drop in the final third. Based on other cigars I've reviewed here, this score should fall in line with a fair number of cigars that are priced at twice or three times what this is. With that being said, you can have those same experiences at a discount.

Team Cigar Review: Ventura Case Study 05 Toro

Team Cigar Review: Ventura Case Study 05 Toro

The more I smoke the Case Studies, the more I believe Ventura's marketing statement of selecting good cigars from various factories. The Ventura Case Study 05 was just plain and simply a good cigar showcasing sweetness, chocolate, earth and tapered spice. I would happily smoke more of these.

Team Cigar Review: Ventura Hugo Chairman Robusto

The Ventura Hugo Chairman Robusto, in my opinion, was a sweet dessert. The sweetened milk chocolate note was upfront and dominant the vast majority of the time until the last third where much needed spice and minerals was available. Overall, a unique and interesting bundle of flavors.

Definitely a fuller strength cigar that also delivers on flavor. This is a great addition to the Southern Draw portfolio and one I'm looking forward to smoking more of and trying the other vitolas. If you're a fan of the brand and like fuller strength offerings, then this is a must try.

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.

Team Cigar Review: Camacho Nicaraguan Barrel Aged Toro

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.
