La Herencia Cubana CORE Belicoso Cigar Review

This 6.2×52 box pressed stick features a dark chocolate velvet textured wrapper with small veins, tight invisible seams, firm pack and milk chocolate aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plentiful thick rich oily smoke with a bit of gritty texture to it. It shows medium-full body with smooth creamy chocolate and earth on the draw followed by a long finish of dark chocolate and pepper zing. The first third continues the same performance and flavors. The 1/2 way point comes at 30 minutes continuing the perfect performance, dropping ash after 1.5″. Draw flavors are the same with the end of the finish taking on a bit of a rougher deep lingering earth note. Finishing up at 55 minutes the last third just added a touch of sweetness to the draw as the smoke grew warmer. Thank you very much to viewer Marcos Heyliger for sending this in!

    What’s the average price point on this cigar, anyone? I’m finding wildly varying prices on-line.

    I’ve had a few of these and they are nice. Bring a drink though, because in my experience, they will leave you with a very dry mouth.

    great stick and great review, flavor profile has me drooling?

    At this point I am pretty sure AJ could roll up my lawn mower clippings and still end up with great burning stick. LOL

    Question Bryan, if you had to choose…would you prefer a cigar that burned excellent with a great draw but lackluster flavor or a flavorful, transitioning stick if it required some effort and attention?

    Great smoke. Great review.

    This one is sounding pretty good. I dig the chocolate hints, I’ll have to put this one on the ever-growing list.

    Bryan…I’ll resurrect this review for my comments. Smoking my first of these as I write. Really enjoying the fry dark chocolate with pepper zing though flavors are a bit on the mild side. What struck me was the significant difference you experienced between this belicoso and the toro you reviewed. I do not typically get such a strength/flavor gap between similarly sized sticks in the same line….any sage wisdom you can offer to explain this? Thanks as always, I don’t post often, but I am here multiple times per week!
