I'll get to this one this weekend

Still playing catch up
Just finished an elegencia robusto. I like robustos
this is one has notes of flowers, tea, grapefruit peel, and cedar.
beautiful ash, beautiful draw, a tasty smoke.
I am also a fan of the nub/final third of most cigars. Spicy!
Another good one

One of my favs. They also did this one right. Haven't tried the Churchill or the Pyramid, but the others are good. Corona, Robusto, Toro in that order, favorite to least. I might have the Corona on my list of Top 5 Connies.
Intelligence is knowing that a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad.
I like Oliva and Quesada (including Regius) a lot. I will smoke anything, though.
Having the corona right now. Good stick. Connie isn't my first choice, but this is a solid one.
I just finished a robusto. Just a wonderful, medium-bodied smoke.
Creamy sweet cedar for the most part, with a wonderful vanilla wafer in the aftertaste. Halfway through it offered what I'd call a sweet cherry note.
The odd thing this cigar did, which I've never experienced was a sizzling crackle on most draws until the final third. Very odd. I've had them for a couple months, stored around 70* and 66%, so it wasn't moist. It was fun in a way, but very odd/unique.
I'm going to keep my eye out for some coronas, per Charlie and Martel.

Still playing catch-up on these reviews.
Finally got around to this one.
The draw was too loose but not a problem overall except that, at first I scorched it on the initial light but the flavor got better and better all the way down to the nub. It was actually better on the nub end than any other cigar I can recall lately.
I had some slight trouble with the band as well. Too much glue, and that caused a tear but no performance problems. Great flavor profile. I have smoked one or two of these previously and they are definitely worthy of revisiting again and again.
