Felipe Gregorio sure knows how to present a cigar. The PURE Corona comes elegantly decorated with a nice cedar sheath on its lower half. Just above the sheath is a small gold and brown band that displays the Felipe Gregorio name. Above that is a larger band that shows the Felipe Gregorio logo in red and gold. The cigar itself is rather oily and has a dark wrapper. A few veins are visible, and the cigar feels firm overall. The pre-light aroma is of cedar, while the cold taste is earthy.

As far as the PURE's burn is concerned, all is good and well. The draw is perfect and there is plenty of smoke produced. The gray ash is solid. The burn acts as if it wants to go uneven, but it evens itself out in a hurry. No re-lights are required.

The first flavor that appears when smoking this PURE Corona is earthy. The first third is mostly earth, until its joined by some rich cocoa. The cocoa keeps strong into the second third. Some cedar is also detected. The final third is a mix of earth and sweetness.

As I said earlier, I am relatively new to Felipe Gregorio smokes, but after smoking this PURE Corona, I will probably look to pick up more from the brand in the future. The PURE looked great, smoked well, and offered some nice complexity. A single hovers around the $10 mark, so this is not really an everyday cigar if you are on a budget. Still, pick one up if you are looking for some good flavor in a pretty package.

The Felipe Gregorio PURE Corona earns a rating of 3.5 out of four stars.
