Ventura Cigar Company claims it’s a cigar for the new generation of cigar smokers. That fits perfectly for Cigar Newbs out there. I was intrigued by their new tobacco know as Andullo which provides a naturally different flavor and aroma. The wrapper is an enticingly creamy red-brown with strong veins. There is and sweet and floral aroma to this cigar that’s just radiating as soon as I pulled it from the cellophane. I am digging the band on this cigar, it’s an elegant urban feel. What is really cool is that the cigars ingredients are written on the top and bottom lines of the band, I’ve never seen that before. There is a soft sweetness to the cold draw, with a salty after taste.

First puffs– Creamy with a thick smoke right away, drawing a loose. There is a slight floral taste with earthy tones mixed in and then you get a shot of pepper. The spices are not overwhelming and sit nicely on the palate.

First third– I’m now picking up a sweet fruity flavor that is more dull in texture like a red wine would be. This plays very nicely with the spices that roll in after each puff. The draw is great and smoke is loose.
Second third– Rolling along so nicely, I really am enjoying the subtle floral hints throughout. I’m thinking this is the Andullo tobacco, I’ve never had this type of flavor before. It’s a bit different in taste for sure. Still very smooth and creamy with a nice draw.

Final third– The spices come back a little bit more along with the earthy tones. The draw has remained very consistent throughout with smoke production dropping just a bit.

Overall a really enjoyable mild cigar that will be sure to please all smokers. Ventura Cigar Company claims it is a new cigar company for the new generation of cigar smokers. Smokers who can enjoy while out with friends and allow new smokers to take a step into cigars. This cigar fits that mold absolutely perfect. A cigar that can easily be smoked by new and old smokers alike. I do suggest trying as you will not be disappointed at all.
