Gran Habano #5 Corojo Cigar Review

This 4.5×50 stick features a dark brown oily wrapper with minimal veins, tight seams, triple cap, very light pack and musty barnyard aroma. First light reveals a very snug draw with ok smoke output, a mild body of smooth creamy textured slightly sweet earth and a long finish of the same. The first third burns fairly quickly and unevenly, giving a bitter wood taste, dropping the smooth sweet earth. The 2nd third shifts flavors to a strong bitter, burned oily wood, dropping the ash in a solid chunk. Ending at 50 minutes in where it got very hot, it continued the same flavor profile just bringing body to a solid medium. The burn was a bit wonky to start but completely evened itself out by the end, giving perfect construction for most of the experience. Thank you very much to viewer Jeff Oda for sending this in!

    Damn, I must have sent you a dud! I like these quite a bit, but I guess that’s the drawback to sending only one for review. Always appreciate the honest take. I hope the next one won’t be as bad for you.

      Yea, could be bad if “redneck neighbor” were to be able to afford internet.

      • Since I upgraded my router a couple years ago, they have not had it – they were leeching off my wifi for a while 🙂 They don’t even have cable!

    NICE REVIEW, TRIED ONE AND IT WAS NOT GOOD AT ALL, NO BODY, NO FLAVOR. SO I DID A REVISIT ON IT AND IT WAS A LITTLE BETTER BUT THE DRAW WAS TOO HARD.
