Review Notes: Purchased the Gran Corona in Nov 2006. The cigar has a nice firm bunching with a fairly dark slightly oily wrapper. The pre-light aroma is very nice with a slight spiciness to it. The draw and smoke volume are very good. Even the pre-light draw provides a huge dose of pepper! Initial light up immediately lets you know that you better go get something cold to drink to cool yourself off while smoking this stick. Extremely spicy\peppery with a high octane kick. This cigar is in my opinion slightly unbalanced in that there is too much strength overpowering the flavor. Its pretty much pure power and pepper. The finish is long and peppery and your tongue will tingle for some time after smoking this cigar. There are occassional hints of cedar and wood but this smoke is overbearingly full of pepper. It's like smoking a habanero. The burn was pretty even and the ash was a slightly dark to medium grey and firm. The cigar is well made and definitely a full bodied, full strength smoke. The aroma is strong, spicy and stingy. This cigar could easily make you break out in a sweat and would go excellently with a cold beer. Overall this is a well made cigar at a nice price. Its not for eveyone as it is probably one of the strongest smokes on the market. Not an everyday cigar, but great for occassions when you want something with a peppery kick. I prefer some of the Don Pepin cigars in terms of flavor, but these ERH are a steal in comparison.
