la sirenala sirena the prince

The first flavor detected while smoking The Prince from La Sirena is earthy. Earth dominates the first third and is joined by some spice. The second third continues with the spicy theme and also introduces the tasty chocolate detected in the cold taste. The final third returns with earthy notes once again, and it also provides some sweetness and a tobacco flavor.

When all is said and done, Miami Cigar and Don Pepin Garcia produced a solid smoke with The Prince. The cigar had me from the start with its presentation, and it continued to impress with its satisfactory burn and nice flavor profile. I wouldn't recommend the La Sirena line for beginning smokers, but experienced smokers should enjoy it. If you enjoy Don Pepin creations or full-bodied cigars, the La Sirena line will probably impress you. The Prince can be found for $9 per single. It's not cheap, but the cigar does offer plenty of quality. You can also find it in packs of five or boxes of 20.

La Sirena's The Prince earns a rating of 3.5 out of four stars.

Felipe Gregorio PURE Corona


The PURE line from Felipe Gregorio should cater to fans of Dominican puros. The PURE is the first line of Dominican puros from the brand. I must confess that I am not exactly a Felipe Gregorio expert, as I have only tried one of their cigars previous to this PURE Corona that I am about to light up. With that being said, I am looking forward to a quality puro, so let's skip the small talk and get into the meat of this review.

The PURE Corona measures 5 x 44. There are just two other sizes in the PURE line: the 5 x 54 Torpedo and the 7 x 47 Churchill. As stated, the PURE is a Dominican puro made completely from tobaccos grown on one farm in the Dominican Republic's Cibao Valley. The filler is composed of Corojo Vuelta Arriba and Vuelta Abajo Seed tobaccos, while the binder and wrapper is made up of Corojo Vuelta Abajo Seed tobacco. The tobaccos used to make the PURE line are aged 12 years. Once constructed, the cigars themselves are aged for at least six months in Royal Spanish cedar trunks. They are then shipped to Felipe Gregorio's warehouse in Miami. Once there, they are aged in the cedar trunks once again. In terms of strength, the PURE is said to be medium to full-bodied.
