Blind Cigar Review: Ventura | Archetype Chapter 3 Sacred Scales Robusto

“A cigar I hated to lose in the process of smoking. Great notes of cherry, earth, leather, cocoa, and oak make this a excellent cigar. Great ash that hung on to the cigar for 30 minutes or better. Five or more of these cigar would round out your humidor perfectly.” -Sean F. (fullermaine)

“My overall experience was tainted by the tight draw for half of the smoking experience. The flavors that I did get were very nice and I would hope they would be more prominent in a smoke without the draw issues. For flavor alone I would definitely smoke this cigar again and in all fairness I should do so with a stick that is consistent in draw throughout the smoke. ” -Diana (ArmyRN)

Blind Cigar Review: Ventura | Archetype Dawn of Destiny Robusto

“Very good cigar. Started out with an incense/aromatic element that I couldn’t quite put my finger on other than incense, but it didn’t stay through the whole cigar. It kinda faltered out about the middle of the 2nd and walnuts and sweet tobacco took over. By the end it was just wood and that same sweet tobacco. Strength never got up to a medium. Very nice smoking experience. ” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

“This was a very tasty cigar for me and hit a lot of different flavor notes that my palette enjoyed immensely. There was enough variation and change that I was kept interested and paid more attention while smoking because of the constant nuanced changes. This is a great cigar for almost any level of cigar smoker. Not too strong for a beginner and complex enough for the seasoned smoker’s palette.” -Diana (ArmyRN)

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)
