There are plenty of different flavors packed into the Coronado. At first there is a pepper flavor that kind of forewarns you that this is a cigar that might knock your senses. A nice cocoa flavor comes in, and there is also a good bit of leather present. Some earth appears that reminds me of the cold taste. Cedar is noticeable, and a pleasant, sweet flavor really blends in nicely with the overall profile of the cigar. This is one stick that will keep you entertained and on your toes not only with the many flavors, but also its strength.

The Coronado definitely lives up to its hype and high ratings earned in the past. It looks great, and while the burn is not perfect, its issues are something that can be overlooked due to the great flavors. This is not a cigar intended for beginners, and lightweights should stay away. Full-bodied fans will likely love it. It's probably best to smoke the Coronado after a meal due to its strength. Don't be bold and go at it with an empty stomach. A single can be had for around $7 to $8. That is a bit high, but you are getting a very good cigar in return. You can also find it in packs of 5 or boxes of 24.

The La Flor Dominicana Coronado Double Corona is an excellent cigar and earns a favorable rating of 3.5 out of 4 stars.

J. Fuego Casa Fuego Belicoso

If you are a fan of cigars made with Nicaraguan tobacco, the Casa Fuego line from J. Fuego might be up your alley.

The J. Fuego Casa Fuego measures 6 x 52 in its Belicoso size. Other sizes in the line include: the 5 x 50 Robusto, the 5 1/2x 46 Corona, the 6 1/2x 52 Toro, and the 7 x 50 Double Corona. The cigar is a Nicaraguan puro, containing only Nicaraguan tobacco. Both its filler and binder use Nicaraguan Corojo tobacco, while the wrapper is a Nicaraguan Habano. All of the tobaccos used to make the Casa Fuego are aged. The Casa Fuego is box-pressed, made in Honduras, and is said to fall between the medium and full-bodied strength classifications.

The cigar's Habano wrapper gives it a semi-dark appearance. Under light you can see a heavy oily sheen as well. There are a few veins throughout the body, and it has a bit of give when touched in certain spots. A nice band near the head accents the cigar's look nicely. The band has a red, black, and gold color scheme. It features the Casa Fuego name, and also states that the cigar is a “Honduran Selection” to reflect its origin. Before striking it with a match, the cigar gives off a strong scent and taste of pepper.
