Riot 65 Cigar Review

This StogieBoys.com blended 6.5×52 stick features a dark chocolate mottled wrapper with a chisel tip, soft pack, smooth oily butter feel, minimal veins, tight invisible seams and a soft wood and spice aroma. First light reveals a good draw with mild-medium soft sweet oily tobacco flavor and a long smooth finish with good thick smoke output. The first third burns very well absolutely pouring off the smoke both from the foot and perfect draw. It’s up to a medium body with creamy sweet flavors of coffee, cocoa, leather and a long smooth finish of the same with no harshness. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 40 minutes, the body comes back down to mild-medium keeping the same great profile with perfect construction. Ending at 1:25 the last third brought up the coffee to the forefront still giving touches of a creamy sweet cocoa but with a much fuller longer finish. Thank you to StogieBoys.com for sending this for review! I’m giving away a new box of these! Comment and use the app below to enter.

    Alright, I ‘m taking your suggestion on Riot 65.

    I absolutely prefer the cigars that Bryan tends to describe as “dessert-like.” The original Tatuaje Anarchy, as well as the Oliva V Melanio, are great examples. One way or the other, I’m getting hold of some of these!

    • phaedron

      OK, wait! Just $63.95 for a box of 20 at Stogieboys?! How can I not buy a box right now?!

    Bryan, on your review of the Gurkha Park Ave. you mentioned it was the best $3.00 stick you had had so far. Does the Riot 65 trump that ? Just curious.

    This looks & sounds like something I’d like…a lot!

  • cody roberts

    Damn those sound great. Would love to have some. Wink

  • Justin

    I’d rather cut my sticks, but this sounds worth learning how to pinch it! I am anxious to try these.

  • Sean

    this seems very interesting!..

  • kielq282

    Sounds LIke my kind of smoke

  • John Withem

    Just had my first Riot 65. For a house blend, it’s very good. Nice packaging and box also. For the price, it’s a no brainer. Very sweet smoke with a smooth finish. Notes of coffee and cocoa. Medium body and flavors. The foot smoke was plenty and the draw smoke was average. The draw was medium with a little resistance.
    I’ll let them rest for a while and see if it gets better.

  • kellyj

    like to try these..always have cut my cigars.

  • fatkid

    interesting…..would like to try

  • Ryan Combs

    Interesting cap on that. Never seen one where you just tear it off like that. Kind of cool! Good luck, and early congrats to who ever wins the box.

  • Al Quackenbush

    Interesting for sure and not sure how I feel, but I’d love to try them.

  • Steven Cavin

    Seems like my kind of stick. Not sure how I feel about the pinch cap thing but it looks like it didn’t give you any problems.

  • Rob.n.Denver

    Adding this to my ‘to try’ list. Thanks!

  • birdman94

    i would love a box of them

  • douglas77

    sounds good! house blends can be awesome bargains at times! 🙂

  • LigaPrivadaFan

    Cross between a Padron and a Liga enough said!

    • John Withem

      This is were I was disappointed. t teased the palate with hints of those fine cigars. The flavors never ramped up to be full flavored. I guess that’s why Bryan mentions that it left him wanting more.

  • mufdvr6976

    thyose sound good………..im in!

  • kwazee5

    Surprisingly super positive review for a house blend. I have never seen those tips before either.
