This Geek Critique has been generously sponsored by Cfickter (Chuck).

The Cigar: Smoke N’ Guns Corojo Corona

The Specs:
Wrapper: Honduras Corojo
Binder: Nicaragua
Filler: Honduras & Nicaragua
Country of Origin: Honduras
Strength: Medium
Size: 4.5 x 44

Shipping: US and Canada addresses only
Due Date: December 26, 2019

The Hype:
The Smoke N’ Guns Corojo is a collaboration between Oscar Valladares (who also rolls the Leaf & Bean line) and the founder of Smoke N’ Guns, Inc of Pittsburgh, PA, a unique shop that sells cigars, coffee and has a fully licensed gun sales counter in the back of the shop.

With a wrapper from Honduras, its filler has leaves from both Honduras and Nicaragua and binder from Nicaragua, with a peppery start and a wonderfully smooth finish. Its easy draw makes it a great smoke with no labor at all. This medium bodied cigar is the perfect afternoon smoke break. One of the hidden gems.

The Reviewers:
Volunteers should be Veteran status or higher that have not done a Geek Critique review in October or November. Please take into consideration that this review will be due by December 26. If you are interested, please indicate so in the forum below and Chuck will make the final selection.

1. 05Venturer(Kent)
2. ninfiction (Brian)
3. nickthafish (Nick)
4. appollo (Stephen)
5. BewareDaPenguin (Adam)

Note: A reviewer who posts their review late will receive neutral feedback. A reviewer who does not post at all will receive negative feedback. There are always exceptions to the rule and a reasonable excuse for tardiness or a no show will be respected and thus not counted against the reviewer. Our sponsoring members and our administrators make the choice of who is to participate in any particular Geek Critique and can be better informed of their choices with this initiative in place.

Thanks again to Chuck for providing the cigar. And thank you to the reviewers. The smoking lamp is lit . . .

Looks like we have our panel in place. Chuck has indicated that your cigar will go out soon so that you have plenty of time to acclimate to your preferred humidity and get your review done.

Reviewers: Please leave a note in this forum when you cigar is received in the mail so that we know that everyone has gotten their sample.
