"Smaller Ring Gauge way to Go"

Review Notes: I liked the Coronado corona especial better than the toro. I think the smaller ring guage is better at least for me as the cigar did not seem so strong and was much smoother. It also helped that this cigar had been in the Humidor over a year. I was really struck by the workmanship, it's a beautiful cigar and I even like the band. Again, my advice buy the smaller ring guage and let them age.

Review Notes: Not bad, not great. Think I paid $5 a stick, not worth it IMO. Flavor is ok, tangy and earthy but pretty one-dimensional throughout the cigar.

Review Notes: Won a single of these from CBid for like five bucks and have had it sitting for about two weeks. I'm a huge La Flor fan and was really looking forward to trying this one. A nice looking stick, wrapper was a reddish brown and the cap looked very well made. Snipped the end and lit this one up. Opened with lots of pepper and some wood tastes. After that the cigar settled into a solid medium bodied smoke. The pepper and wood tastes stayed but were occasionally joined by some sweetness on the finish. This is not a very powerful smoke, by no means is it mild but compared to a majority of other cigars made by LFD this one is on the softer side. To me anyways. Draw was perfect but the burn gave me some problems. Needed several touch ups and a re-light. Began to smoke very hot with about an inch left and set it down for good after that. Overall I thought this was a pretty good cigar. It had a decent taste, good draw and I got it for cheap (always a plus). Will probably buy some more if I can get them for about the same price I paid but wouldn't spend the $7.00 MSRP on em. Just my two cents.

"PDS - try another"

Review Notes: I didn't read the other reviews until posting mine. I will say that I have been herfing premiums for near 20 years and caution a review on a single experience. I have 3 boxes of the DblC and picked up two of the corona. I will simply state that I have experienced one here and there in a box of any brand that was an anomoly. I remember specifically having one in a box of Don Carlos one time that was one of the most god awful buring tasting cigars I ever had. I also remember thinking that thank god I have gone through boxes of that fabulous smoke because if I were newer to it and that was the first I ever had in the DC line I probably would not have tried another. I have 6 boxes of various DC sizes now. Again - try this cigar again - VERY unusual experience but its hand made and there will always be one here and there to tunnel, unravel, etc.

"Different than big brothers but great!"

Review Notes: First -I really love this line and it has become a staple in my humdor (amongst 35 other boxes). My favorite is the decadent dbl corona but I don't want to detract from this size. As is often the case there is a uniqueness to the various sizes within the line. This does not have the full tilt feel it in your gut strength that big brother has but for a medium profile packs tremendous flavor and depth just the same. A plus is that I prefer the DblC with 9 or more months of box time and the corona is good right away. As with all in this line construction is top notch and very consistent; one of the most consistent of any country of manufacture on the market. If cubans were rolled like this I would own more! Not for the beginner but not an ass kicker either I highly recommend this stick and for the price it blows away a lot of higher priced smokes. Billows of intesnesly flavorful smoke that is wrought with sweet spices, leather and a subtle woodiness.
