Cigar Geeks Geek Critique

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 Water

Pre-Light: 18 Points of 10 Possible

Very nice sweet tobacco aroma upon pulling it out of the cello. A loose box press look, milk chocolate in color, minimal veins. A nice classic looking label. A few soft spots and a nice oily feel feel. Clean cut with my v-cutter.

Light & Burn: 10 Points of 15 Possible

Lit up with ease, a wavy burn right away with plenty of smoke throughout. The burn line straightened out pretty quickly with no effort from me. Had to re-lit going into the last third of the cigar. Shortly afterwards had to re-lit again. Flaky white ash that lasted about 1/2 inch to begin with

Construction: 25 Points of 30 Possible

This cigar had a great draw throughout the entire cigar. Cap held firm as well. Wrapper burned a little uneven but never unraveled and stayed intact throughout the entire smoke. I did like the ring size and length. No overall complaints about the construction of this cigar.

Flavor: 17 Points of 45 Possible

1/3 - Grassy, cedar with some pepper on the retro, a little bitterness on my tongue with a medium body.

2/3 - Continued grassy/earth were the predominate flavors, continued bitterness and the pepper tailed off. Medium to full body as I started to feel it a little more.

3/3 Flavors really mellowed out to a mild and started to get acidic

Summary

Overall this cigar did not hit my wheel-house for flavor at all. I had a hard time getting past the bitterness and then the acidic flavor near the last part of the cigar. The cigar looked very promising by the aroma and look of the cigar. Again the construction and burn were good. A couple of re-lights. The cigar should be looked at for the bitterness or maybe it just needs some more rest time.
