1502 Emerald Box Press Corona

Good looking cigar with smooth oily wrapper. Mostly firm box press bunch. Mildly fragrant wrapper and closed foot. The draw is a little generous. Today's beverage is a Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA.



The cigar starts medium to full body with mostly tobacco notes. The burn is even and the ash is very light grey. There are notes that I can't identify yet beyond the tobacco.



The ash dropped at one third. The body of the cigar has mellowed. Leather notes have appeared and there is a light white pepper note in the retrohale.



During the second third the pepper notes picked up a bit. A light cedar has appeared under the leather and tobacco notes. The cigar continues to burn even. The ash is not flaky but isn't very solid. Still, the smoke is smooth and pleasant.



Approaching the final inch the smoke began to be warm from the generous draw, but light purges solved the problem. Overall the cigar was pleasantly complex and the construction was excellent. What started out as a mostly full bodied cigar settled into a nice medium. A nice corona that earns 8/10. Joe Bob says check it out.

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