Caldwell Midnight Express Corona Cigar Review – this 5.75×46 stick features a firmly packed dark chocolate wrapper with an oily velvet feel, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, huge double cap with pigtail and a rich sweet cocoa aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with full bodied flavors of a dark chocolate, slight pepper and building spice on the long finish joined by a dry nuttiness. The first third amps up the cocoa and dials back the pepper, leaving the nuttiness but not so dry on the finish. The draw is still good but a touch more snug, making the cigar and smoke fairly warm. The 1/2 way point comes at 25 minutes with flavors remaining the saw but the draw opening back with with rich thick smoke. Ending at 55 minutes the last third shifted to a full sweet warm cinnamon with just a touch of the cocoa left.
