Carinos Corona 5 Pack
5 1/2 x 44 - Natural - Pack of 5
Cariños cigars are produced under the direction of Nestor Plasencia using a core of Panamanian and Honduran longfillers tucked into a zesty Brazilian Sumatra-seed binder, then seamlessly rolled in your choice of light brown Nicaraguan Jalapa Seco or dusky Nicaraguan Viso Oscuro Maduro wrappers. The Natural offers a medium-bodied smoke, accented with wood, leather, & a hint of spice on a sweet finish. The Maduro presents an earthier, more full-flavored experience that finishes on a spicier note.
I've smoked these in various sizes - all maduro - and just can't fault them. They outperform many of the famous names too.
The Carinos Corona, is a medium bodied cigar, that sports a nut brown, colored warper, with some vains. The cigar is well made, although the ash burns loose, and jagged. For a cigar of this size, it puts out a great volumes of smoke. Upon lighting the cigar, it's taste is flinty, and harsh. Thought the first half of the burn, notes of oak, and black coffee, were present in the nose. Though out the second half, notes of black pepper became prevalent on the pallet, and in the nose. Nearing the end of the smoke, this corona remained woody, with notes of vanilla, coming through on the pallet, and in the nose, to complete an interesting corona. --Note-- I believe this cigar may benefit from extra time spent in the humidor. The approximate burn time for this cigar, is 120 minutes. On a scale of 1 to 10, I''d rate this corona 6
