J.Fuego 'Heat' Corona Gorda

J. Fuego Heat cigar 1
J.Fuego 'Heat' Corona Gorda. 5.5x46. Nice construction, with mostly straight lines and subdued veins. Dark brown roasted wrap. Cut and lit well. First half tastes of cured dark wood, fresh black pepper, roasted walnut. Second half is roasted herbal, bitter leaf, hard wood. Ash is clean and striped well, holding at over an inch. Burn is mostly even throughout.

This is a fine cigar, offering a consistent toasty woodsy flavor across the stick down to the band. There is a slight spice at the front, and an aroma of cured wood and rich tobacco from the second half on. Worth your time for a brief break. Recommended.

From the company:

"Meticulously blended, HEAT offers a smooth, deep, medium-bodied flavor brought together by an exceptionally attractive Corojo wrapper."

"If you can't take the heat, steer clear of the latest release from J. Fuego. The Fuego family calls Cuba home, as so many names in the cigar business do. Five generations of tobacco growing means that Jesus Fuego is a veritable master of the industry, and well equipped to dream up exciting, innovative new projects. Jesus made a trek to Central America in hopes of uncovering the perfect Corojo crop. After searching high and low, he finally found it, and this blend was born. The star of this show is the flawless Honduran Corojo wrapper leaf, a thing of beauty that's impossible to deny. It delivers generously to the flavor profile, which includes plenty of creamy-sweetness along with an ample kick of pepper. A mix of Nicaraguan Criollo long-fillers along with a Nicaraguan Corojo binder adds just the right amount of fuel to this fire. Complex, medium-bodied, and smooth from start to finish, this premium handmade is worthy of all the praise."
