Ventura Archetype Initiation

This cigar has a rustic but well constructed Colorado Maduro wrapper. The bunch is firm and consistent. The cold draw is perfect. Light coffee notes are in the foot of the cigar. This morning’s beverage is a Chameleon Cold Brew latte.



The cigar is initially earthy and cedary . There is a light white pepper note in the retrohale. The burn is very even. Oddly, the wrapper cracked a bit about a third of the way up, but it looks like it should not be a major problem.



By the end of the first third this is proving to be a medium to full bodied cigar. A light spice, maybe a bit of gingerbread, has joined the profile. The ash is quite solid and the cigar continues to burn evenly with no ill effect from the cracks in the wrapper.



During the second third the ash falls but is still very solid. The cedar notes have increased as well as some sweetness coming into the flavor profile. The gingerbread has also increased. The burn is a bit uneven as it passes the wrapper cracks and will most likely even out after. The latte is proving to be a very pleasant match for the cigar.



Approaching the final inch the complexity of flavors remains excellent, very smooth and pleasant. The overall quality of the construction is good in spite of the minor cracks in the wrapper and the burn evened out after passing them. 8.75/10, Joe Bob says check it out.
