This cigar was in a bomb that an American friend send me and I can’t find too much information about this 5¼x42 tubed corona online.
The tubo is simple, just plain alumium with a small Dunhill sticker on it. The cigar is nice and smooth, medium brown with a few veins. The cigar has a mild straw smell. the construction feels good and the smooth predraw backs that feeling up. I taste a mild raisin flavor.
I am surprised by the full flavored coffee that I taste with a little splash of wood, I expected this cigar to be much milder. After an inch the coffee disappears and I taste some wood with a metallic earth flavor. The strength of the flavors is also gone, the flavors are now medium like I expected.
Halfway I only taste a pleasant wood flavor and after two thirds the cigar gets a little spicy.
After about an hour of smoking the cigar turns, so I had to toss it. I got a lot of thick white smoke and a light colored ash. The burn and draw are good. When I purged the cigar I got a huge flame. This cigar is medium to full flavored and medium bodied. The ash was quite firm.
Would I buy this cigar again? Nah, this cigar was nothing special.
