Drew Estate Liga Privada T52 Corona Viva Cigar Review – This 5 7/8×48 stick features a dark chocolate slightly red hued oily, toothy mottled wrapper with a firm pack, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, large double cap and pungent musty hay and honey aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with medium-full robust deep tobacco notes, slight sweetness, syrupy thick texture, slight pepper and cayenne on a short clean finish. The first third grows much longer on the finish already adding a touch of strength to the near full body. Flavors are more complex with a deep honey sweetness on the draw going to a lighter cherry through the end with a touch of coffee. 40 minutes at the 1/2 way point the ash drops in a solid chunk, flavors remain near full bodied going to a dark roast coffee, deep caramel with a long finish and touch of strength. The draw opens a bit pouring out the smoke. Ending at 1:10 the last third burned a bit faster with flavors remaining the same but the strength hitting hard from the band back, matching at medium-full.
