Coronado by La Flor toro

Coronado by La Flor is a cigar made by La Flor Dominicana and uses Dominican Sumatra and Piloto as filler and a Dominican corojo as a binder. These tobaccos are all farmed at the La Canela farm, owned by La Flor Dominicana owner Litto Gomez. The wrapper is a sun grown Nicaraguan habano. The toro measures 6×52 and is available on the Dutch market.

The chocolate brown wrapper is mild oily and a few veins. The construction has a soft spot behind the band. The predraw is fine though, and first I taste raisin and then lots of pepper. The cigar has a nice band and a peppery barnyard smell.

I taste coffee with is a bit sour and pepper. After a few puffs I also taste a bit of sweetness. After half an inch I taste citrus, some sweetness and herbs. After an inch and a half the cigar gets a little spicy with more herbs, that sour citrus flavour, some sweetness and a hint of chocolate. The cigar spreads a mild chocolate smell too.

Halfway I still taste quite some citrus with herbs, some dry wood and some cinnamon. After two thirds I taste toast, herbs, citrus and some chocolate. The toast and herbs are the main flavour with some sugar as support.

This cigar lasted me a whopping three hours. The draw is great. The smoke is average in volume and thickness. The ash is dark silver coloured and firm. The cigar is quite hard to keep lit and the burn is a bit crooked. This cigar is full flavoured and medium bodied.

Coronado by La Flor corona especial

Coronado by La Flor is made by La Flor Dominicana and just two sizes are available in The Netherlands. One of them is this 5¾x47 corona especial. The blend consists of Dominican Sumatra and Piloto Cubano with a Corojo binder. The tobacco comes from the La Canela farm, owned by La Flor Dominicana. The wrapper comes from Nicaragua and is a sun grown Habano.

The medium brown wrapper has a chocolate colour and is quite oily. I see a few veins and spots. The band is quite beautiful. The wrapper is quite thick. The predraw is fine and I taste dry tobacco with raisin.

I taste an earthy flavour with some coffee, the flavours taste warm with some spices but without being spicy. After half an inch the coffee disappears, I keep tasting that earthy flavour with some spices and a mild sweetness. After an inch the spices, like nutmeg, grow in strength. The sweetness grows a bit in strength too.

After two thirds I taste wood, cinnamon and a splash of citrus on the background and the aftertaste. The spices are getting stronger and the cinnamon is now the main spice.

The smoke time of this cigar is exactly two hours. The draw is good and the salt & pepper coloured ash is compact and firm. The smoke could be a bit thicker. The burn is great. This cigar is medium flavoured and medium bodied.
