We love when cigar companies do something different or unique. In today's review, we're looking at the Room 101 Cherub cigars, specifically the Chicken AF and the Scarlett Hogg.
What's unique about these cigars is that they're almost identical, but they differ in that they have different ratios of filler tobaccos. So, where we've tasted the same binder and filler tobaccos where the blender changed the wrappers, today we're doing the reverse of that.
On the cold draws, the Room 101 Cherub Scarlett Hogg and the Room 101 Cherub Chicken AF tasted similar. Once lit, the Chicken AF started smoother, and the Scarlett Hogg tasted spicer.
Are they worth $12.69? Should get a 5 pack of either? Let's keep smoking.
Brand: Room 101
Line: Cherub Scarlett Hogg & Chicken AF
Size: 6 x 52
Price: $12.69 – Luxury Cigar Club
Filler: Nicaraguan (Jalapa, Condega, Esteli)
Smoke Time: 92 minutes
After smoking both cigars (at the same time) for 92 minutes, I can't tell you which one I like better. Both the Room 101 Cherub Chicken AF and the Room 101 Cherub Scarlett Hogg are very good.
There were times when I preferred the creaminess of the Chicken AF. There were other times when I thought, “man, the spice in this Scarlett Hogg is really wonderful.” While they're different, they're both excellent cigars.
I would smoke both of these cigars again. I enjoyed them both and couldn't pick one over the other. They've got two different flavors, and each is delicious. Both the Room 101 Cherub Chicken AF and the Room 101 Cherub Scarlett Hogg earn a CigarScore 5.
