Drew Estate La Vieja Habana Connecticut Chateau Corona Cigar Review
This 5.5×46 cigar features a medium tan wrapper with a butter soft feel, spongy give with several soft spots, small veins and a manure aroma. This is a mixed filler cigar, marketed as a value line. First light reveals A good draw, mild body flavors of a dry tobacco and slight sweetness with a short clean finish. In the video I talk about the differences between long and short filler. The first third ramps up the body to medium, and smoke production is excellent. Overall a very consistent stick, flavors finally shift a bit at the 1/2 way point dropping the tobacco flavor for a heavy wood, and the pepper kicks up a bit. The smoke output is very warm, not too warm to smoke but certainly much hotter than most cigars. Ending at 45 min the last third showed no further changes. Thank you very much to viewer Jeff Oda for providing this sample for review!
I have reviewed a 2nd sample here, as a comparison to see how consistent it is, as a mixed filler cigar.
