Cigar Geeks Geek Critique

Smoke n' Guns Corojo Corona
Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Nick (nickthafish)

Cigar Geeks Rating

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.

This cigar was enjoyed with Ice water

Pre-Light: 9 Points of 10 Possible

Wrapper is a nice reddish brown and toothy with a slight sheen. Firm even feel with some visible veins and nice tight seams. Triple cap looks great and nice cedar and earthy tobacco aroma. Took a perfect V cut and pre-light draw is ideal.

Light & Burn: 10 Points of 15 Possible

Burn was a little wavy and required correction. Flaky ash but held on for an inch and a half until I knocked it off every time. Good amount of smoke that smells sweet and woody. Burn line continued at an angle till the end but never too extreme.

Construction: 25 Points of 30 Possible

Draw started off good and became a little tight about an inch in, but not enough to make a bad smoking experience, just required a little harder pull for the remainder of the smoke. The wrapper and cap were perfectly applied and stayed that way the entire smoke. Seams were clean and flat and cap cut sharp and clean and didn't come undone. No tar build up or off/bitter flavors.

Flavor: 38 Points of 45 Possible

Espresso, clove and cinnamon come on right away. Not much spice, but more cinnamon on the retro. Starting to pick up cocoa and a pie crust flavors after the first third. Flavors became lighter and sweeter with more baking spices and cocoa. Not much transition but picked up an added peanut flavor during the final third. Strength is medium to light as I didn't feel any nicotine effects and body was medium. Left a nice light after taste of tobacco and baking spices.

Summary

Nice easy smoking cigar that was quite enjoyable and didn't require too much thought or concentration. Flavors came through well and stayed consistent with only minor changes and transitions. Performed well enough to not be a distraction and not strong, so good to smoke while doing other things or for people with a lower tolerance. I would smoke this cigar again, but didn't stand out enough to purchase a box. Love the band art!
