Le Grande
Le Grande

Tasting Note: Full of nutty notes, sweet baking spices and graham cracker, this long corona gorda has a subtle red pepper piquancy and a touch of almond paste flavor. Tastes as elegant as it looks.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Aug 01, 2016
Score: 88
The rough wrapper of this cigar is covered in glue stains from top to bottom. Sweet notes of pistachio and graham cracker also carry a briny, olive-like quality, but the finish is dry.

Issue: Cigar Insider, Apr 21, 2009
Score: 92
Made with a richly colored wrapper and triple-seam cap. Cocoa and leather flavors turn cedary sweet. Pleasant lavender notes emerge before the long, honeyed finish.
