A bit of a history lesson for you: Don Ronaldo was born in Cuba, one of seven children, who, by the ripe old age of nine, knew exactly what he wanted to do in life: become a tabacalero. After a little persuasion, his father agreed, and by the age of 21, Ronaldo had been trained by some of Cuba’s finest rollers. He was a rising star until the government seized control of his land and tried to force him to roll cigars for the state-run companies. Ronaldo refused, and as punishment was put to work in the rice fields. Three years later he left Cuba for the good old U.S. of A, and worked hard to start producing his signature cigars.


One neat fact about Ronaldo’s factories: he was so steeped in Cuban tradition, that they even sport a full-time lector to read to the rollers as they work. You would think that it might be a little cheaper to just buy some books on tape, but what do I know?


Chapter One…it was a dark and stormy night.


Let’s talk about how this guys is constructed: Ecuadoran wrapper, Nicaraguan Binder, and a filler out of the Dominican and Nicaragua. It is an attractive piece of work, dark red in color with some slight veining. The draw is very nice, and it has a combination of leather and coffee flavors that is very pleasing indeed. You can pick them up for about $9.00 a pop, which I would have to say is money well spent.

For the second month, you aren't reviewing corona gordas. In fact, since you started this series, the Tempus Inceptio is the only corona gorda reviewed. Mostly, the sizes you are reviewing are close to toro size. You know what a corona gorda is since you state the correct size in the introduction, so why are you reviewing cigars with a 52 rg?
