Cigar Geeks Geek Critique

Table 36 Integrity Corona Gorda

Cigar Geeks Rating

Welcome to another Vendor sponsored Geek Critique.  Up for review this time is the Table 36 Integrity Corona Gorda.  Integrity highlights the diverse soils from three of Nicaragua’s most noted regions, proudly displaying a Jalapa wrapper atop a double binder of Esteli and Jalapa which in turn secures ligero from both Condega and Jalapa all fashioned into a stylish soft box press.  This critique has been generously sponsored by Tim Morgan of Table 36 Cigars.

This cigar was enjoyed with Iced tea

Pre-Light: 18 Points of 10 Possible

Fairly dry wrapper with small veins, medium brown in color. Wrapper is nearly flawless and seams are nearly undetectable.
Barnyard aroma pre light. Cold draw gave me a slight bit of cinnamon with an earthy flavor.
Cut with V-cutter

Light & Burn: 11 Points of 15 Possible

Lit easily with a match, burn was a bit wavy at first but straightened itself out. Gray flaky ash held on for over an inch until I tapped it off.
Smoke volume was good.
Cigar went out when nearly at the nub.

Construction: 27 Points of 30 Possible

Draw for me was near perfect. Cigar has a slight box press and is wrapped flawlessly. Only 1 noticeable soft spot under the band after removal. The canon felt just a bit soft but not squishy to the squeeze test. Nice looking stick.

Flavor: 25 Points of 45 Possible

Started out with lots of peppery spice, cedar notes & medium tobacco flavor. Halfway point the pepper fades and I picked up a leathery flavor. When nearly to the nub I got a medicinal flavor with a bit of ammonia aftertaste, set it down for about 1 minute and it extinguished itself.

Summary

Overall this cigar doesn't fit my flavor profile but it was a beautifully constructed cigar. Flavors were OK for me up until the medicinal/ammonia flavor that took over at the end. I may pick up a few of these and give them some humi rest and see if the flavor profile changes more to my liking.
