This corona has a firm draw but is a mostly leathery tasting smoke with flavors of earth, raw cocoa bean and licorice as well.

A comely corona with an even draw and burn. The tobacco is toasty and cedary with a nutty finish.

A poorly stretched wrapper covers this cigar, giving it a wrinkled look. It's a bit soft, but it has enticing, woodsy smoke with a sweet coffee quality that intensifies as it burns down.
