5 1/4 X 42 Corona

Wrapper: Ecuadorian Sumatra

Binder: Nicaragua

Filler: Nicaragua and Honduras


I reviewed the robusto last week, but Stogie Santa said that the local rep said that we had to wait to try the corona.  Well, they came in to Mr. J’s this week so I fired one up.  Now, this is a really different smoke from the robusto.  I found that this vitola had a substantially higher concentration of pepper in the flavor profile.  I would imagine this is due to the smaller ring guage.  But, because of that I did not get the balance from this stick that I got from the robusto.  That being said, this was still a very good smoke and I would rate it similarly to the robusto because this may age a little better.  I still say a solid fiver.
