La Corona Corona 1996

Relatively light colorado colored wrapper, a bit rough and matt... not really a beauty that you have in front of you after removing the cellophane. A decent, pleasant smell comes to the nose: oak wood, leather, hints of black pepper....

The olfactics flavors that I noticed from the cold cigar I can find also in the first third, the wood vanishes away after a short time and gives way to a subliminal taste of tobacco, which will last very concise over the whole smoke. An intensive start, a good meal before makes really sense in this case.

Pepper gets more intensive during the second third, distinctive notes of fresh roasted accrue to profile.... some hints of leather come up from time to time... an impressing and tasty interaction.

The big finale in the last third: dark chocolate, pepper, tobacco and the always upcoming oak wood that I had in the beginning set up an incredible harmony which makes it hard to put the cigar to the ashtray after a smoking time of a bit more than 90 minutes.

"Ideal compagnion" to an espresso after the dinner, amazing powerful and very intense flavor.

Very good smoke in the cheap....
