Team Cigar Review: Room101 Namakubi Ranfla

Team Cigar Review: Room101 Namakubi Ranfla

I really enjoyed the Room101 Namakubi Ranfla. I thought Booth did a great job of capturing what the Namakubi was, while at the same time delivering the quality that you get with the new Room101 blends out of Tabacalera William Ventura. It smoked like any good Room101 blend has for 11 years. Packaging is just amazing as well.

The Hit and Run Part Deux (Rip & Dip) Almost Robusto from Room 101 starts out with rich layered complexity. Unfortunately, the flavor declines as the cigar progresses becoming an average experience by the last third. It's possible the drop off from each third could indicate the cigar needs some rest for the tobaccos to marry, so I look forward to revisiting this review in 2019.
