Welcome back!  We are getting Monday started off right here at Puff.com with a pair of cigar reviews.  Keep reading to find out what the Coronado by La Flor and the SWAG Limitado 99 have to offer.

Coronado by La Flor Toro

The Coronado by La Flor is by no means a new cigar, but it is regarded as a very good one.  Released approximately six years ago by Litto Gomez and the folks at La Flor Dominicana, the Coronado has received high ratings across the board.  Gomez launched the line using an all-new blend.  Needless to say, his gamble paid off.  Now it’s time for me to see if the Coronado’s lofty reputation is all hype or if it actually delivers.

I decided to go with the Toro format for this review, which measures 6 x 52.  Other sizes in the Coronado line include the 5 7/8 x 47 Corona Especial, 6 x 54 Chisel, 7 x 50 Double Corona, 7 x 54 Double Toro, 7 x 60 Corona Gorda, and the 7 ½ x 38 Lancero.  The cigar’s composition begins with a filler blend of Dominican Sumatra and Piloto Cubano tobacco.  The binder is Dominican Corojo, and a Nicaraguan Sun Grown Habano wrapper tops things off.  The strength of the Coronado is listed as being full-bodied.

The Coronado by La Flor Toro is a good looking cigar.  I really like its decorative band that displays the Coronado by La Flor moniker over some ornate graphics that include a crowned figure in the center.  The gold accents in the band look nice against the medium-brown wrapper.  I notice plenty of oil on the surface.  There are a few prominent veins here and there.  The Coronado feels firm to the touch, and construction seems solid overall.  No surprise, as La Flor Dominicana has never really disappointed me in this regard before.  Prior to lighting, I pick up an aroma of mild tobacco.  The cold taste is sweet.

The Coronado Toro lights with ease and offers a great draw.  A ton of thick, aromatic smoke fills the air.  The burn is even to the core and never requires a touch-up.  No re-lights are necessary either.  The ash is firm and light gray in color.  Smoking time is just over an hour.
