Isla Del Sol Gran Corona cigars are made by the esteemed house of Drew Estate with one idea in mind: outrageous flavor. Premium tobaccos are bundled together in a naturally sweet sun-soaked Sumatra wrapper which is then infused with Mandheling bean coffee and topped off with a lightly sweetened cap.
This is one of the best cigars I have ever had. Smooth with no burn on the back of the throat. Great taste and aroma. They burn even and taste as good at the end as they do in the beginning. If you are looking for a great mild cigar or are a first time cigar smoker this is a must try.
the isla del sol are the true kings of cuba
I recently caught an interest in trying cigars after getting a set of four EP Carillo sticks in my monthly subscription box. I ve never smoked anything before, so I did a bunch of reading, ended up at famous-smoke, read up on tobaccos and made a list of flavor-infused cigars that sounded good enough to try, or had a good reputation, with the wrappers that sounded interesting to me bought all 5-packs so I could get a good feel for a cigar before making a decision about it . I ve tried a variety of cigars now, mostly flavor-infused, some not. This is one of my favorites, along with the Tabak Corona Negra dark wrapper and Nub Cafe Macchiato 438. I ve realized pretty quickly I do NOT like CT shade wrappers. They taste bitter to me, even in a sweet-tipped stick. The Isla Del Sol Gran Corona was the first cigar that made me say, Yep! on the first stick. It has a nice flavor of tobacco and coffee with a decent bit of sweetness, while having less of an ash flavor than others I ve tried. Pretty even burn, fantastic smell, and a draw that feels right. I just missed these on Monster awhile back, and I m waiting to see them pop up again to pick up a box.
So far my favorite sweet capped cigar. Once hearing about sweet capped cigars ive tried, Java, Maroma, La Fontana, Isla Del Sol, Blondie, Kuba Kuba, and so far Drew Estates has come out ahead every time. Blondies and Kuba Kubas are great don t get me wrong, but for a coffee/chocolate aroma and taste on the lips you can not go wrong with these isla del sols. Try the sampler or a whole box!
