5 Vegas Classic Corona
All right guys, here's my second review. I have to preface this by saying that i was an impatient SOB and smoked it when i just received it today, so here goes. PRELIT DRAW: Earthy, bittersweet TOTAL BURN TIME: 35 minutes 1ST THIRD: Very mellow, earthy and leathery. Slight hints of pepper, not strong at all though. Did I mention leathery? lol 2ND THIRD: Kinda forgettable, still very mild, little hints of leather, pepper and coffee at certain points. FINAL THIRD: I started getting somewhat tired of it, but couldn't get myself to put it out. It kept showing signs of greatness, but was somewhat bitter, almost acrid at points. I tried to make myself put it out at least 4 times, but couldn't do it. It shows so much promise. OVERVIEW: I should have rested this guy. It was bitter and sharp at many points throughout, but I am thinking with a little more age under it's belt, it could be a VERY solid smoke. When I was smoking it I was kicking myself for not waiting longer. Ideally, I could see this being a fantastic morning smoke with a cup of strong coffee, and an espresso shot thrown in. Had a very mild coffee flavoring that would compliment it very well. As soon as my new humidor arrives, I will pick some more up to put some age on. I would give it a 6/10 for how it was when i smoked it, could be a solid 7 or 8 easily when rested.
