Blanco Cigars Nine Double Corona Cigar Review
This 7×52 stick features a rich milk chocolate slightly lumpy handrolled wrapper with a couple small veins, tight invisible seams, even slightly spongy pack, double cap and rich barnyard aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plentiful smoke output giving medium-full body flavors of a soft muted creamy textured tobacco with a big sugary sweetness that holds through the finish. The first third mellows a bit to a medium body holding the same great core of flavors and the candy like sweetness, still with perfect draw and smoke output. Burn isn’t razor sharp but doesn’t need any attention. 30 minutes in near the half way point flavors remain the same and the ash drops in solid inch chunks. 55 minutes in at the end of the 2nd third flavors shift to a slightly sweet creamy nuttiness with a bit of earth on the draw only. The finish is very long now, holding the same flavors through to the next draw. 1:10 minutes in the last third continues to transition, bringing a caramel sweetness, keeping the nut and adding a very deep substantial earth especially through the finish, which is smooth but goes deep in the back of your throat. Strength and body are both up, pushing medium-full giving a good kick. Ending at 1:30 minutes the last bit showed no further changes. Thank you very much to Blanco Cigars for providing this sample for review!
