Los Hermanos Corona Gorda - Coming Soon
By GC
2/24/2012 4:01:00 PM  
Los Hermanos Corona Gorda (5 5/8 x 46) Review

The Corona Gorda is the the first of two new sizes we will be releasing in the Los Hermanos line in the very near future, the other being a Box-Pressed Robusto (5 1/2 x 52). The Corona Gorda that I am smoking today was created by the great people of Casa Fernandez and Tropical Tobacco, at the Raices Cubanas factory in Nicaragua. The Box-Pressed Robusto will come out of Tropical's Miami factory, the release is TBD. I was a big fan of the first run of Los Hermanos, available here, especially the Robusto. I am generally more attracted to smaller rings, and with all the strength and nuances that the larger gauges had, I'm really excited to see how the blend does in a Corona size.

Construction / Pre-light:

This size of the Los Hermanos sports the same reddish hued Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper, the cigar itself has an earthy aroma to it while foot gives off a spicy pepper when inhaled through the nose. The cigar is well packed, with no soft or hard spots to speak of. The pre-light draw is sweet tobacco again with some spice.

First Third:

The Los Hermanos Corona starts off with a peppery blast of spice, an undercurrent of earthiness with an almost creamy bittersweet cocoa flavor. The draw is absolutely spot on perfect, the burn also while a little bit wavy is also very good. As the cigar progresses, there is a bit of a leathery flavor, with the spice still in the mix, with a cedar note on the finish.




Second Third:

The thick, rich smoke is heavy on the palate leaving a long creamy, leathery finish. This may not be to appealing if it wasn't for the sweetness of the tobacco that remains in the background. The cigar is probably medium - full at this point, it does have a bit of a sneaky character to it. It doesn't seem all that full and then all of a sudden you notice the strength creeping up on you. The flakey white ash falls off fairly easily on this sample, while another I smoked was like a rock.. Maybe the humidity of the cigar adjusting. There is a definite new-ness in this blend that has to be taken into account. By the time we make them available to customers, they will have had more time to settle.



Last Third:

In the last third the upfront spice has died down.. The cigar has become medium - full bordering on full.. but hasn't gotten bitter. The flavor nuances are mostly earthy with some sweetness and cedar behind it. A thoroughly enjoyable smoke. Smoke time was a little over an hour, I basically nubbed it.



Overall

The Corona size of the Los Hermanos predictably gives much more attention to the Nicaraguan Cafe Colorado Corojo wrapper. It allows the fillers and binders to play less of a dominant role in the overall profile of the cigar. This ends up working well for this blend, while not ultra complex, the cigar's Nicaraguan profile is packed full of positive flavors. It will satisfy the spice-aholics, and also people looking for a lot of flavor and body in a small package. Like I mentioned these will definitely do well with a few weeks of aging in our warehouse. Another great creation by Paul Palmer, Arsenio Ramos, and the rest of the folks at Casa Fernandez. These guys make great stuff!!

Cheers!

GC

New Closeouts from Don Pepin at Atlantic Cigar Co!
By admin

New Cigar Closeouts

EO Brands 601 Blue Label Maduro!

This dynamite Nicaraguan, blended by Don Pepin Garcia is not a typical cigar brand you would see in the closeout bin. Rich Maduro flavor, balanced spice and sweetness give the 601 Blue Label awesome character. This is no cheap cigar.. Check it out, these highly rated cigars are going for 56% off MSRP and will not last long.


Don Pepin Garcia Vegas Cubanas

Another premium cigar brand from Cuban legend Don Pepin Garcia on closeout! The Vegas Cubanas is one of Pepin's tamer blends, falling into the medium body profile, with a smoother, creamier flavor than some of his more full body cigars. If your looking to try some of Jose "Don Pepin" Garcia's superior blending, at a cheap cigars brand price, the Vegas Cubanas is a great closeout to try.

E.P. Carrillo Core Line Maduro No. 4 Corona – IPCPR Sample
By GC
7/21/2011 11:23:00 AM  

Ernesto Carrillo has extended his very successful and extremely well crafted stable of brands to include a Broadleaf Maduro version of his regular production Core Line. I got my hands on the No. 4 Corona  (5 1/8 x 42) this morning and I’m going to give it a whirl.

E.P. Carrillo Core Line Maduro Corona Review

The cigar has a very dark and rustic Maduro appearance, does not look to be cooked or dyed in any way.  Has some of that classic barnyard, earthy smell to it. Construction is very solid; the cigar is well packed with tobacco.  Pre-light draw has bittersweet cocoa and classic tobacco flavors.  After lighting up this small corona, due to the firmness of the cigar I thought the draw would be tight, but on the contrary, ample smoke is pulling through this mini maduro. Right off the bat I notice the increase in strength in relation to the regular Natural wrapped EP Carrillo Core Line.

Starting off, I’m getting a lot of spice through the nose with an initial blast of spicy cocoa flavors.  The aroma is mostly rich maduro smoke, thick with sweet flavors. Because of the small ring gauge of the Corona size of this E.P. Carrillo Maduro, the Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper is dominating the flavor of the cigar. This is not a bad thing, by the way! The ash holds firm for about an inch or so on this small stick showing you the cigar is definitely well packed. As I move into the second third, I’m starting to notice the Sumatra binder is adding a nice spiciness to the finish.  Similar sweet and cocoa rich maduro flavors continue through the rest of the smoke as it continues to build some body. As I smoke my way into the last third, I’m getting more spice on the finish, as the rich maduro flavors continue.

 E.P. Carrillo Core Line Maduro Corona Review

Overall I think the Carrillo family has worked their magic once again. As far as blending is considered, this cigar has everything a maduro lover can ask for. Rich, sweet, cocoa flavors mixed with just the right amount of earthiness and spice. While the Corona offered more wrapper flavor, I can’t wait to try a larger ring to see how Ernesto Carrillo’s filler and binder blend changes the overall flavor. With Carrillo, you can’t miss, especially at the Core Line price point. If you like Maduro, definitely watch out for this one.

 E.P. Carrillo Core Line Maduro Corona Review

Keep your eyes peeled on the Blog, Facebook and Twitter for the latest releases as they come in. For now, you can visit our E.P. Carrillo Core Line Maduro page and put yourself on the list to be notified when they come in.

Keep on smoking!
