Black Label Trading Company Royalty Corona

This cigar has a very smooth Corojo wrapper. The aroma from the wrapper is light and leathery while the foot hints at ginger notes. The bunch is firm and the cold draw is excellent. Today’s beverage is a Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA.

The cigar starts with a medium body and toasty leather notes with a light white pepper note in the retrohale. The burn is even and the ash is fragile without being flaky. The fairly heavy citrus notes of the IPA are a bit strong for this cigar, which would pair better with a lager.

The first third is a nice blend of toasty leather and cedar notes with white pepper notes building in the retrohale. The burn continues to be even. The draw remains perfect and provides an excellent amount of smoke.

During the second third hints of ginger sneak in and out to add to the complexity. The construction is excellent as the burn continues to be very even. The cigar continues to be very medium bodied without sacrificing any flavor.

Approaching the final inch some hot spots are appearing, but can be dealt with by purging. Overall this is a very good cigar. The construction and complexity are excellent. 9/10, Joe Bob says check it out.

Eleven dead bodies. One dead cat. No breasts. Joe Bob says, "Check it out."

More capacious than an elephant's scrotum, and just as difficult to get your hands on...

There is only one thing in life worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.
