Whenever I do a review I do a little search into the background of the cigar. Normally, this stuff can be pretty interesting. For example, knowing the genesis of a particular blend can be informative if not entertaining. This is all the information that I found for this cigar:
Saying I found nothing is a bit of an overstatement but I didn’t find much. I couldn’t find a central location for information on Room 101 Cigars, which I find odd since Matt Booth (Boofy), the creator of Room 101, is a genius at marketing and promotion and Camacho, who make the cigars, isn’t bad either. It’s not too important, I guess, as the more recent stuff from Room 101 is pretty popular even without a ton of info on the web.
It’s a box pressed cigar with a medium-light brown wrapper and good construction. There are a decent amount of oils on the wrapper and the look, beyond the “medium-light brown” descriptor, has a mottled look to it. Alright, enough of this, let’s smoke the cigar.
Length: 4 ¾”
Ring Gauge: 50
Wrapper: Rosado (from where?)

Price: $79.99/Box of 20 | $30.60/Pack of 5
Taper no more? Fire!
After an initial burst of peppery spice comes some dry, barnyard flavors that are performing decently. There’s also some oak and that peppery spice gradually morphs into a dry spice. It’s a unique mixture of flavors and I’m not quite sure what to think about it yet.
Some sweetness comes on during the second third but the main flavors are barnyard and oak. Spice is pretty much gone at this point. There isn’t a lot of strength to these flavors at this point, which is troubling.
Sweetness becomes a stronger flavor during the final third. I did have to perform one sizable touch up during this third but it didn’t seem to affect the performance of the cigar. The sweetness started to take on a floral character during the second third but it really comes on during the final third.
Medium bodied with a good draw and a decent burn; the Room 101 Ltd Conjura isn’t a bad cigar but just one that I don’t particularly care for. The spice that was present was decent for a while but then it just falls off of the map. What is present is a lot of pleasant sweetness that, while I’m sure some of you will like it, I just didn’t particularly care for it.
