Gran Habano Corojo #5

Gran Habano Corojo #5. 6x54. Gran Robusto. Decent construction with pronounced veins and leaf edges. Dark brown shading on the wrap. Cut well. Lighting took some time, roasting the foot several times around. Even burn across. Ash was mostly dark, clinging an inch before an easy drop. Taste on the intake included strong tobacco, pepper, walnut. On the exhale, taste was more nutty, smooth, dark woods. Though the ash was a bit more burnt that I'd like, which may have been due to storage issues, this was a fine cigar that I would try again. Recommended.

From the company:

"Gran Habano Corojo #5 is the strongest blend in the Gran Habano profile. The filler consist of Costa Rican and Nicaraguan long leaf tobaccos with a Costa Rican binder all held together by a noticeably red, flawless Nicaraguan Corojo Wrapper. The combination produces rich, full-bodied flavors for a veteran cigar smoker."
