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: 19 Points of 10 Possible

This cigar sports a medium-brown, smooth, oily wrapper.  The pack is even without any hard or soft spots.  The aroma from the wrapper and foot is of a pleasant and strong barnyard.  I started the smoke with a straight cut.  Pre-light draw flavor reveals a mild raisin sweetness.

Light & Burn: 13 Points of 15 Possible

The cigar lights easily and burns perfectly; no re-lights or touchups required.  The dark gray ash is solid with no flowering or flakiness and falls off in 1.5 inch chunks.  The smoke volume is plentiful.  The cigar burned for about an hour before it got a bit too hot with about a quarter of the stick left.

Construction: 30 Points of 30 Possible

The construction was impeccable on this cigar.  The draw was perfect, offering just a slight resistance.  The cap with a perfect triple cap the never showed the least hint it would unravel.  The band came off easily with no damage to the wrapper.

Flavor: 25 Points of 45 Possible

The cigar surprised me a bit with its initial strength.  But it may have been just because this was my first cigar in 4-5 days.  The strength, body, and flavor can be catagorized as medium-full all throughout.  The oily smoke started with an initial flavor of citrus with a hint of earth.  As the cigar went on the earth ramps up until it becomes dominant.   The aftertaste is short.

Summary

This is a very well made cigar that performed perfectly until it got hot after about three quarters of the stick.  My guess is this is due to the tobacco and not the construction.  Where the cigar comes up a bit short is in the flavor department.  While they are decent, there is nothing unique about them at all.  There are many cigars on the market with this same basic profile.
