Gran Habano #5 Corojo Cigar Review

This 4.5×50 stick features a dark brown oily wrapper with minimal veins, tight seams, triple cap, very light pack and musty barnyard aroma. First light reveals a very snug draw with ok smoke output, a mild body of smooth creamy textured slightly sweet earth and a long finish of the same. The first third burns fairly quickly and unevenly, giving a bitter wood taste, dropping the smooth sweet earth. The 2nd third shifts flavors to a strong bitter, burned oily wood, dropping the ash in a solid chunk. Ending at 50 minutes in where it got very hot, it continued the same flavor profile just bringing body to a solid medium. The burn was a bit wonky to start but completely evened itself out by the end, giving perfect construction for most of the experience. Thank you very much to viewer Jeff Oda for sending this in!
