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.
