Room 101

Monday, August 30th, 2010

The Room 101 is blended be Camacho. What is Room 101 you ask? From what I could find on the Internet, Room 101 is a brand of luxury items including jewelry, clothing, and various accessories. They decided to add cigars to their lineup, and Camacho did the honors. My first thought was about how gimmicky this whole thing sounded. But who am I to judge without trying the product? I finally gave in and picked up a few cigars, and offer you my review.


Wrapper: Semilla 101 (Honduras)

Binder: Honduras

Filler: Honduras, Dominican Republic

Size: 305 Robusto (5 x 50)

Price: Around $7.50


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The wrapper looked nice, and you could barely see the seams from rolling. The aroma coming off of the wrapper reminded me of a barnyard. The foot had a milder natural tobacco smell. When squeezing the cigar, I found a few minor hard and soft spots. They were not extreme or of concern. The pre-light draw had a little resistance, and had a slight earthy taste.

The burn required several minor touch up’s, and the ash held for just under an inch.



The first third: An easy, smooth peppery spice was detected when passing smoke through the nose. Wispy earthy notes were constant, along with an unidentified sweetness. The smoke volume was pretty thick with a nice earthy aftertaste.


The second third picked up with that sweet flavor. It didn’t take long before it developed into mocha. The spice remained but lost it’s peppery feel. It just became smoother, sweeter, and easier to pass through the sinus. At the half way point, the smoke feel became creamy.


The last third: The smoke volume increased and became very creamy. It stuck inside of the mouth and had a sweet spicy aftertaste. Speaking of spice, it became smoother and even sweeter. Earthy notes were very far in the background and hard to detect.



This was a very good medium bodied cigar. It wasn’t a “WOW” cigar, but the flavors were good. They changed up enough to keep things interesting. All gimmicks aside, this is a solid cigar and a good smoking experience. The Room 101 is easily worth revisiting, and if you haven’t tried it, I’d recommend you do.
