My Father La Antiguedad Corona Grande Cigar Review

This 6.4×47 box pressed stick features a rich dark chocolate velvet wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, triple cap and pungent cocoa and hay aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plentiful full bodied smoke showing a big pepper and spice blast over a smooth chocolate and tobacco core with a long finish. The first third brings down the pepper and spice more in line with the other flavors, with the same blend. The 1/2 way point shows no flavor transitions, keeping the fairly complex mix but bringing strength up to a medium giving me a little buzz. Construction is flawless with a great burn, solid ash drops and plentiful smoke output. Ending at 1 hour with a couple inches left, the strength went to full, beyond my taste. From the band back, flavors dropped the pepper and spice going to a warm nut and earth on the draw with the finish getting quite short.

    I have to say, I’ve never experienced the nicotine sickness that Bryan has spoken of several times in the past. Strength-wise, every cigar I’ve ever had has felt pretty much the same, which is to say, I don’t perceive it. Must be a result of being raised by smokers– tolerance built by inhaling the equivalent of a pack a day from birth until I left for college. Probably does not bode well for my eventual lifespan…

    Hey Bryan, loved that you were able to power through this cigar. One of my new favorites. Want to know how do you think it compares to the Flor de Las Antilles. My Father considers them separate lines, but the Las Antiguedad is sort of the Flor de Las Antilles’ “Little brother”, so to speak.

    Hey, Bryan. Thanks for the review. I have one of these babies in the humidor that I’ve been sitting on…I plan on taking precautions regarding the strength, as I learned having watched your review of the La Aurora 107 Maduro Lancero, where you (and I) got knocked on our collective butts! Thanks for the warning! God bless, brother.

    Finally got my hands on one of these. I’m really diggin the flavors out of this first third. It’s all on the finish. Like a sweet milk chocolate taste that is real creamy. Very good so far.
