Corojo Goodness!, 23rd Mar 2017
Reviewer: The Cigar Authority
Once the cigar is cut the core notes one the cold draw is a slight spice with nuts while the foot of the cigar is nutty. On first light the cigar serves up some spice and nuts. There is a semi strong pepper through the nose.
On the first third of the cigar there is some defined crush red pepper. Also joining the mix is some noted of wood and nuts with a long earthy finish. The pepper through the nose subsides slighting and as the first third comes to a close so does the crush red pepper.
In the second third of the Leaf by Oscar Corojo a robust coffee note begins to develop in earnest and the prolonged finish begins to subside, while it earthy there is also some wood. Its a strong wood note, not of the cedar variety though I can’t put my finer on the type.
The last third of the Corojo sees a return of crushed red pepper and an abundance of earthy notes. The finish is moderate and borders on long with final notes of earth, pepper and wood.
