Room 101 Little Big Delicious: A Compact Powerhouse with Big Flavor

The Room 101 Little Big Delicious (LBD) stands as a successor to the well-received Room 101 Big Delicious, offering a similar blend in a more manageable format. This 4.5 x 52 corona size cigar, created in collaboration with Smoke Inn, promises a concentrated and flavorful experience for those seeking a shorter smoke session.

Blend and Construction:

The LBD stays true to its predecessor’s Nicaraguan core. A blend of filler tobaccos from Esteli, Jalapa, and Condega is bound by a Honduran corojo seco binder. The star of the show is the Ecuadorian Habano 2000 wrapper, known for its smoothness and potential for delivering rich flavors. This blend promises a medium to full-bodied smoking experience with a touch of Nicaraguan spice.

Pre-light:

Visually, the LBD boasts a milk chocolate-colored Habano wrapper with a slight oily sheen. The cigar feels dense but well-packed in the hand. The cold draw offers a mix of earthy notes with a hint of barnyard hay and a touch of sweetness reminiscent of molasses. The aroma from the foot reveals notes of cocoa and espresso, hinting at the potential richness to come.

The Smoking Experience:

First Third:

The first puffs deliver a surprisingly smooth and creamy smoke, despite the Habano wrapper’s potential for boldness. Earthy notes and peppery spice take center stage, quickly joined by a touch of cocoa and espresso. The retrohale intensifies the peppery spice with a hint of floral sweetness.

Second Third:

As the cigar burns into the second third, the peppery spice mellows slightly, allowing the cocoa and espresso notes to come forward. Hints of cedar emerge, adding a touch of earthiness that balances the developing sweetness. The retrohale continues to offer a peppery kick, but it’s now joined by a subtle nuttiness.

Final Third:

The final third sees the cocoa and espresso notes intensify, creating a rich and decadent finish. The cedar remains present, grounding the sweetness with its earthiness. The peppery spice from the first third makes a subtle reappearance, adding complexity without overwhelming the palate. The overall experience remains smooth and creamy.

Overall Impression:

The Room 101 Little Big Delicious lives up to its name. It packs a flavorful punch in a compact format. While the Habano wrapper offers a touch of spice, it’s balanced by the richness of the cocoa and espresso notes. The earthiness of the cedar provides a foundation for the evolving flavor profile. The construction is excellent, with a consistent burn, easy draw, and ample smoke production throughout.

Here’s a quick breakdown of the Room 101 Little Big Delicious:

  • Strength: Medium to Full
  • Body: Medium-Full
  • Flavor Profile: Earth, pepper, cocoa, espresso, cedar, nuttiness, floral sweetness (hints)
  • Construction: Excellent (even burn, easy draw, ample smoke)
  • Smoking Time: 45 minutes to 1 hour

Final Thoughts:

The Room 101 Little Big Delicious is a great choice for experienced and intermediate cigar smokers who appreciate Nicaraguan tobacco and a flavorful, medium to full-bodied smoke. The corona size makes it a perfect choice for a shorter smoke session without sacrificing complexity. The price point is reasonable for the over delivered quality offered. If you’re looking for a satisfying and flavorful Nicaraguan blend in a convenient size, the Room 101 Little Big Delicious is definitely worth a try.

Additional Considerations:

  • Since the LBD is a sequel to the Room 101 Big Delicious, some reviewers who have smoked both might find the LBD slightly less complex due to its shorter format.
  • The peppery spice might be more noticeable in the first third for some smokers, but it mellows out as the cigar progresses.

I hope this detailed review helps you decide if the Room 101 Little Big Delicious is the right cigar for you.
