Cigar Review Leaf by Oscar Corojo

I recently smoked Leaf Corojo cigar. The smoke was overall very good. It was a little on the strong end, but very enjoyable. The cigar itself came wrapped up in a leaf. This cigar was very good tasting, even though it was a little on the strong end, it still was a smooth smoke. The cigar was well made and I would highly recommend it to someone other than a novice cigar smoker to try.

CIGAR REVIEW CAO AMERICA MONUMENT

/ by

 Cigar Review

I recently smoked a CAO America Monument cigar. This was a very good smoke. It did get a little stronger as the smoke continued. I really enjoyed this cigar. I would recommend this to someone, however, most likely not for a novice smoker. The barber pole gave it a nice contrast. It had some sweet and slightly rougher flavors.

Details of the Smoke

I smoked this cigar with my father. The smoke lasted 2 hours and 10 minutes. It should be noted I am typically a slower cigar smoker than most, also there was someone to talk to. I drank coffee with the cigar. It burned evenly, however, I did have to relight it once. The cigar was able to hold ash for about a inch. With the smoke there was a nice but, a little on the stronger end aroma. It was well keep in a humidor at 70%. It was lit by a butane lighter. Typical cut with a guillotine cutter sliced even from the head of the cigar.

CIGAR REVIEW

Oliva Serie V Melanio figurado Grand Reserva Limitada

This was a terrific cigar! It had a very good flavor from the beginning to the end of the smoke. It burned even through out. The Oliva Melanio was very smooth with coffee and caramel creamy flavors. I would highly recommend this cigar to anyone. Great smoke for the enthusiast. Not to harsh for a novice smoker.

 

 

Here are some facts about the stick.

  • It’s 6.5 inches long with a 52 ring gauge size.
  • Natural color wrapper.
  • Origin is Nicaragua.
  • The wrapper origin is Ecuadorian.
  • Wrapper leaf is Sumatra.
  • Typical price is 14.00 a piece.
  • The Melanio versions were first created in 2012.
  • It’s commonly sold in either box of 10, pack of 5 or singles.

Personalized facts from my smoke.

As you can see from the picture above it’s tightly wrapped and didn’t need to be ashed very often.  Some details about this smoke are: drank a Dr. Pepper with it, took 1 hour and 10 minutes to smoke. Smoked by myself. It had a very nice aroma to it. Was smoked in a open well vented area. Keep in a humidor at 70% humidity. Was cut with a cutter that sniped off the end with a nice clean cut. Lit with a butane lighter. Never had to be re lighted.
