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)

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)

Blind Cigar Review: Crowned Heads | Headley Grange Black Dog Dobles

“This was a not a flavor profile that fit my wheelhouse. Having said that, for someone who likes hazelnut and some black licorice this will be a decent cigar for them. I didn’t like the bitterness of the cigar but it did progress into a tartness that wasn’t distasteful to me. I would have thought the cigar would be stronger than it was given the types of flavors but it remained a medium to full, on the more medium side for me. A decent smoke for a specific palette.” –Diana (ArmyRN)
