Welcome to another Member sponsored Geek Critique generously sponsored by our member appollo (Stephen).  This was done as a blind review so there were no pre-concieved notions about what anyone was smoking.  The cigar provided for this round is the http://www.cigargeeks.com/cigardb/default.asp?action=showcig&cigar_id=194160">ADVentura The Royal Return King's Gold Corona.  

According to ADVentura: The tobacco used for this blend is quite rare, so we are forced to produce super small batches, and monitor the delicate complexity, flavor, and balance with each step. The flavor profile we strive to achieve with this blend is quite specific, therefore, the tobacco dictates the production.

Pre-Light: 10 Points of 10 Possible

A nice Long Corona sized cigar with a dark brown wrapper.  Slight visible veins, smooth and not very oily.  The wrapper smells like a sweet hay with hints of cocoa and cinnamon.  Seems to be well rolled. Firm when squeezed.  Nice clip of the cap and away we go


Lighting and Burn: 13 Points of 15 Possible

Lighting was easy and the burn was spot on.  Firm Ash which held up for about 3/4 inch.   I had to do one re-light but that was on me.  

Solid smoke output and the burn rate was pretty good. Total burn time was about 50 mins.

Construction: 30 Points of 30 Possible

This cigar seems really well constructed.   As mentioned, it seems well rolled.  Light in the hand but firm to a squeeze.  The cap cut cleanly. The draw was perfect.  I didn't find any real flaws with construction.

Flavor and Aroma: 41 Points of 45 Possible

First third - initially hit with a blast of spice, white peppery, it smoothed out rather quickly.  Throughout the smoke, I continued to get hints of hay, wood and some sweetness like cocoa and cinnamon.

Second Third - No real changes. The flavors and strength stayed consistent and the burn was perfect.

Final Third - It got a little spicy again at the end. Some pepper but not overpowering and the sweetness remained.

Summary

Thanks Bruce and Brian for letting me participate in this review.  I really enjoy doing Blind reviews because I have no preconceived ideas on the cigar and can really just try to enjoy it. As mentioned above, the flavor profile I got was really enjoyable. It wasn't overly complex and stayed consistent throughout. Really excited to find out what it was so I can add a few to my humidor.
