Review Notes: While I have to agree with the previous reviewers that the Maduro version is nothing to write home about, the Corojo is MUCH better. While the old school look is not the prettiest to look at, the cigars are well constructed and burn well (for the 12 that I've had). The wrapper has a noticable sweet smell of cinnamon/brown sugar, almonds and possibily raisins. The aroma is just a sweet and inviting, and the wrapper is almost sweet to the taste. The flavor is slightly spicy and leathery, with hint of saltiness, and a real presence of that almond/raisin sweetness, which remains on the palate. I wouldn't describe the experience as complex, but is good from start to finish. I would have to say the this cigar is on the stronger side of medium bodied--and pairs very well with a spicy dinner. As a regular cuban cigar smoker, will you confuse this with a good cuban (while some of my friends have), probably not. But, do I really look forward to smoking them--YES! And I will be smoking a churchill this evening! Forget the maduro and give the Corojo a try--I've yet to have someone tell me they didn't enjoy it!! P.S. I not in the cigar business in anyway, shape or form.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (0) No (7)
