Cigar reviews – 99 words or less
Every great cigar tells a story; at least, that’s what Ventura Cigars believes. The Fantasy Miniseries features three lines, Cloaks among them. After removing the paper sheath portraying an archer wearing a cloak, I made a straight cut and pulled earthy notes in the cold draw. Black pepper notes dominated the profile through the first third. As the pepper withdrew, caramel stepped up, followed by creamy butterscotch. The butterscotch graduated to toffee before disappearing, leaving earth to rule the final third. I struggled to discover how this cigar was special. The Cloaks’ story may need a rewrite.
