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.
The Isla del Sol is a fairly decent cigar for those who like them flavored. The aroma was rather pleasing, as was the taste. There were notes of chocolate within the flavor of a sweet coffee. The burn was fairly even, but not the best. The construction, however, was inconsistent. One cigar was perfect in it s construction, but another was way too tight and yet another loose. Having been thick cigars, I decided to punch them for smoking, so I did not have any real issue with bits of leaf in my mouth.
I had purchased the coronas before and was very pleased. When I found out they make this shorter version I had to try it and I was not disappointed. Beautiful construction, great taste and the right size when you don t have time for a regular cigar. Drew Estates does it again.
Love these sticks always a favorite
best cigar ive ever smoked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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.
Bought a 5 pack of robustos to try these cigars. Now looking to buy a box of them! If you smoke a pipe try these when you travel. Can put them in a pocket and not have all the hassles of a pipe. Could smell the coffee before I even toasted the foot to light it. With the infused tobacco and sweet cap this smoke relaxed me and let me enjoy a beautiful morning with nothing to do. If you like a great cigar these are that even without the flavoring. Add the flavoring and you have a special moment that comes when something pleases all your senses. Couldn t find anything wrong with this cigar! Will definitely be keeping some of these on hand all the time.
Excellent flavor. Don't need sugar in my coffee with one of these.
Goes great with coffee. This cigar has a sweet tasting cap and a subtle background taste that is very pleasant. Its burn is slow and steady, which leaves a nice white ash. I would recommend it hands down for the price.
Heaven in a brown wrapper.
