Sindicato Cigars Affinity Corona Cigar Review

This 5.5×46 stick features a thin fragile dark tan wrapper with a soft buttery texture, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, double cap and light woody aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plentiful mild-medium bodied smoke showing flavors of a slightly bitter oily tobacco with a short finish. The first third brings body to medium-full with a very oily mouthfeel with flavors of a slightly sweet earth and nut with a long zingy finish. The 2nd third burns through with no flavor changes and perfect construction dropping the ash every couple inches. Finishing it out at just under an hour, the whole cigar proved to be very consistent. Thank you to Sindicato Cigars for providing this sample for review!

    Hey Bryan!
    Nice review, i have a question:
    Why in some of the cigars theres a bitter taste on the beggining and after couple of drews its fade away?

    Thanks for the review!

    • It’s just the way some tobacco oils react when first being warmed and vaporized.

    Thanks for the review. Ive been noticing your sound has been degraded as of late – noise and artifacts. Maybe relax your audio compression, some good headphones and a bit of EQ/NR.

    • Nope, nothing has changed on my end at all as far as the audio quality or editing. Thanks for the assumption though 🙂

    Agree with dgrambo. The combo of crickets, birds, and background music is distracting.

    • It’s nature, as I’ve explained in a couple recent videos. There’s nothing I can do about it. The music is not going anywhere I’ve used it for many years. Bottom line if you guys don’t like it, don’t watch.

        The old my way, or the highway approach. You gota like that.

      • jaylaura1

        Just some constructive criticism. I’m aware of my option. Thank you

        I dig the nature sounds in background and the lizards too. Im referring to the high pitched noise. Check out the Sindicato Cigars Affinity Corona Cigar Review. The beginning is very noisy but the end isnt. I did indeed assume the hissy sound was unnatural and unintended. Whatever it is, its detracting and thats no assumption. If you do a low pass EQ around 5k before you compress, it will help improve legibility for your viewers that have a full range audio system.

        • Cicadas. As has been explained now in two videos. Google them if you don’t know what they sound like.

    Having seen you on the internet, I feel not only that we are on a first-name basis, but that we have established the kind of relationship that justifies me asking you to engage some sort of sound-dampening service for your home and the surrounding landscape. Perhaps some sort of noise-cancelling system installed on your property – Bose has some nice products. You probably have the funds set aside for that already. Or is a dome in order? Actually, the dome solution would prevent you from bringing me a hamburger. Bryan, do you mind bringing me a hamburger? I find that an empty stomach distracts me from your free internet postings. What is your favorite cigar?

    • I just about spit coffee on my monitors LOL!

        Happy to provide some levity. Thanks for all of the reviews. Cheers.

      First it was Cigar Obsession, then HLO and now Comedy Obsession. Bryan’s internet empire is ever-expanding.

    Another good review

  • lazyboy

    LOL!! Distracting…..

  • thechase789

    oh no !!!
    being a newbie, I thought all of those sounds came from the cigar.

    That’s why my local B&M threw me out when I asked for a chirping cigar.

    The background noise is irrelevant and part of the experience.
