Rojas Bluebonnets Review

ROJAS BLUEBONNETS REVIEW – CALIFORNIA

Summary:  The smell of this cigar is seriously arousing -- something like springtime mornings in an orchard.  Starting out, I'm picking up cream, green and white pepper, and a bread-like sweetness.

Floral notes and jicama kick off the second third.  The wrapper quality and ash are absolutely beautiful (10/10 pic potential).  That jicama note from earlier might be closer to sugar snap peas; there's a slightly drying mouthfeel, but the subtle sweetness has me salivating. A veritable enigma.

Entering the final third, there's a profile change to cocoa, coffee, and caramel.  Chalk this one up as a big win.

If You Like That, You Might Like This:  Fajitas served on a sizzling skillet.

Pairing Suggestion:  Stout.

Purchase Recommendation to a Friend:  Box.

ROJAS BLUEBONNETS REVIEW – WISCONSIN

Summary:  This cigar starts out with cream, leather, walnut, and graham cracker. It continues along with a light amount of pepper, and also adds hay, chocolate, and cereal grain.

The burn was right on point. The draw was tight; tight enough to impact the experience. This may have been a box recommendation with a better draw. As it was, it was still a very enjoyable cigar.

If You Like That, You Might Like This:  Cocoa Krispies.

Pairing Suggestion:  Coffee.

Purchase Recommendation to a Friend:  Fiver.

ROJAS BLUEBONNETS REVIEW – OREGON

Summary:  The caramel and cocoa colored wrapper on this cigar looks exquisite.  Very smooth leaf and a partial/mostly closed foot.  Cold draw is maybe just a shade tight and offers pure dry straw flavor... like a harvested Kansas wheat field in August.

Opening notes include a mildly sweet nuttiness, just a nod at orange zest and wood notes mixed with dry grass in the background.  Retro haling the smoke brings a bit of heat with a sharp finish, some floral and citrus flavor and more of that dry grass.

Approaching the middle... plagued by touch-ups and draw issues.  This stick is still managing some enjoyable flavors though.  Warm oak notes with some baking spices in the background and a tingle on the top of my tongue from some pepper; it’s quite mild, however.  

Finishing with yet more construction woes including multiple touch-ups and flavors suffering from the cigar attempting to start what we call “canoeing”.  I hope I just received the anomaly stick and the other guys fared better.

If You Like That, You Might Like This:  Arriving at the checkout to find your debit card missing.

Pairing Suggestion:  Coffee and Baileys.

Purchase Recommendation to a Friend:  Single.
