Cigar Review – @CohibaCigars @Cohiba Black Corona Maduro
I received the Cohiba Black Corona Maduro cigar as a gift from an anonymous friend from one of the social media cigar groups to which I belong.
The @ThompsonCigar site describes the Cohiba Black Label Corona as “a solid, full-bodied cigar that features a Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper and three-year-aged interior tobaccos. These tobaccos acquire a refinement and smoothness of taste that is the hallmark of Cohiba Black Label cigars.” This may be true, but I ran into something that was decidedly less than stellar.
@CigarsInternational says that “Hugged by a bold, Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, this hearty maduro is dark, oily and quite intimidating. Inside, a long-leaf blend of Dominican and Mexican tobaccos is bound by a flavorful sungrown Dominican Piloto leaf that has been patiently aged in tercio for 3+ years. This complex mixture is masterfully balanced to offer a smooth, satisfying cigar layered with robust flavors.”
I appreciate the thoughts of my fellow #BOTL who gifted me the cigar. One red flag – it arrived without a glass tube – maybe it had broken? Not sure. You can’t really complain too much about a gift cigar. The flavors were harsh and acrid; the burn line was wonky. I think that this needs a second try soon.
Overall, an okay cigar. Maybe I got one that wasn’t made as well, or – more likely – hadn’t been handled well, or cared for properly. I’ll have to revisit it sometime down the road. I rate it at 85.
