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 Sacra Folium Golden Ratio Robusto is the fifth and final cigar in the series that I've reviewed. I feel like this cigar was at about the same quality level of all of the others which is right around average. It's worth a shot to try one if you're a Connecticut fan, but for me, it's probably not something I'm going to revisit.
The Villiger La Vencedora Robusto is another good cigar from the newly renovated/refreshed Villiger. Flavors of bittersweet chocolate, baking spices, baking soda, espresso beans and creaminess of mixed nuts not only was good, but captured my attention the entire smoking time.
Having smoked a couple of these, I've found it to be a pretty enjoyable experience and one I would have no problem going back to. The price point is a good match for the experience and for those that like cedar and pepper, it's one you'll likely enjoy. I say find some and enjoy them.
Given my expectations, the spice delivery was met in spades, although I'm not too sure if I would call it a wasabi/horseradish delivery. Instead, it was more white pepper driven. What's interesting is, I rarely tasted conventional candela flavors (vegetal, grassy). Overall, if you are a fan of bigger spice in a candela cigar, the Espinosa Wasabi is no doubt for you.
After smoking the Flor de D’Crossier Selección Suprema No. 560 Robusto, my expectations were undoubtedly met. Thoroughly enjoyed the flavors of toast, nuttiness, cedar and baking spices. I would no doubt smoke this again.
The overall conclusion of the Inspirado Red Robusto is that this is a well priced cigar delivering flavors some Equadorian Habano cigars much pricier simply cannot compete with. Given the $6 price point, this is worth at least a fiver to start with.
Following in line with Fratello's style, the Fratello Navetta Discovery is another good example of a medium strength formula with full flavors. An easy recommend if you are a fan of Fratello's style or one to enjoy medium strength, full flavors.
Despite draw and construction issues, the Ramón Allones Specially Selected delivered the typical flavor profile that I have come to expect and enjoy. There is a touch more espresso in this box than I remember from previous years. Overall, I'm glad I picked up the box and I'm sure I will work through it far faster than I should.
