Review Notes: This corona with box code AEP 1/06 comes dressed nicely in a Colorado wrapper with the traditional triple cap and minimal veins. No soft spots were detected, and there was a slight box press. Easy light. Firm draw. Grey-white ash. Started with sweet wood. The first third brought flavors of mocha and coffee beans eaten straight out of the roaster. A strong tannic quality was noted. In the middle third, the tannic tobacco core continued with hints of wood and floral notes, as well as a detectable ammoniac nuance. The last third saw much of the same with a hint of licorice. The main issue, however, was the tight draw, even obtrusive, I would say. This was despite 3 days of dry boxing after storage at 65/63. This clearly was the dominant noticeable characteristic of this particular stick, and sabotaged any enjoyment I otherwise would have derived from this one dimension, medium-bodied, youthful cigar.
