Corona Cigar Company 10th Anniversary Tres Capas Phatt Belly Cigar Review

This 6.5×52 torpedo stick features three wrappers in a barberpole spiral with a connecticut, maduro and candella sections. With just some small veins from the binder showing through, the wrappers are smooth, very evenly applied, it has a firm pack and dry slightly toothy feel, with a very strong barnyard aroma. First light revels a perfect draw with plentiful smoke output giving mild flavors of a slightly bitter grass, earthiness and wood through the short finish. The first third ramps up to a medium body, predictably with smooth short transitions seemingly from one draw to the next. Overall an earthy taste, there’s a pepper and grassiness that comes and goes, all with a smooth oily smoke and long finish. Burn and draw are perfect. 25 minutes in the 2nd third starts with a sweet leather, and a pepper zing through the finish leaving an oily smoke but a parched mouthfeel. Ending at the hour mark where it got too hot for my taste, the last bits continued the same great performance and dance of flavors from draw to draw. Thank you very much to Corona Cigar Company for sending this sample in for review!
