Blind Cigar Review: Ventura | Archetype Sage Advice Gordo

“This cigar definitely had personality. It started off with a nice balance of espresso and chocolate with a very nice, mellow after-taste. The second third became more of a strong espresso with hints of chocolate, much like a chocolate brownie after-taste. Finally, it took on the personality of a strong, bold cigar that was basically a strong cup of coffee. There were nice notes of chocolate throughout but became very strong at the end. The construction was solid and the draw, while very easy at first, became just a not tight about half way through. All in all this was nice cigar that would pair well with any strong drink.” -Eric (smalls29)

“I tend toward fuller bodied cigars generally, and much smaller vitolas as a rule, but I enjoyed the hell out of this beast for the full ride. I lit this late on a Saturday morning, and it paired wonderfully with a couple extra cups of dark roasted coffee well into the early afternoon. I’d strongly suggest that you do likewise. ” -John I.

“Wow… whatever this is I want more for my collection. This is one of those mild smokes that you just have to have for a nice relaxing session where you can kick back and relax while you enjoy the experience. More complex than most mild cigars, it had a great flavor profile from each third to another and it never got bitter at the end like some lighter smokes get. Two thumbs up.” -John A. (John A.)

Blind Cigar Review: Ventura | Archetype Strange Passage Robusto

“This is a cigar that I would gladly smoke again. While the flavors may not have gone through a roller coaster of transitions, they were consistent and well balanced. The retrohale was not bitter or harsh, and really complimented the flavors on the palate. It burned well and produced great smoke. I look forward to finding out about this cigar.” –Matthew T.
