Canimao Limited Edition Corona Review

Canimao Limited Edition Corona - 6.5 X 42. Wrapper - Ecuadorian Sumatra, Binder - Ecuadorian Sumatra, Filler - Dominican Republic & Nicaragua. Medium - Full bodied.

Initial lighting taste - Cedar & spice.

First third - A good amount of spiciness, citrus, leather and some raisin notes.

Second third - Spice, tangy citrus, leather and the raisin notes. Very nice flavor profile.

Last third - Spice, tangy citrus, leather and raisin notes. Long enjoyable finish of tangy, leathery spice.

Construction - A beautiful, silky-smooth, brown wrapper with no major veins visible or soft spots. Triple capped in the old Cuban style tradition.
Burn - Sharp burn with a white colored, solid ash that held on an inch plus at a time.
Draw - Draw was very good - not too tight and not too loose. A good amount of smoke is produced with this draw.

This is now my favorite line from Canimao Cigars - it is the fullest bodied and has one of my favorite flavor profiles which I am a big fan of - citrus spice, leather and the raisin notes. For my liking, I would put the Limited Edition first followed by the Jibaro and then the Churchill as my top 3 from Canimao Cigars. MSRP is an amazing $6.00 for this vitola which I would gladly pay for a quality cigar such as this one. A cigar best enjoyed after a moderate but substantial meal. I have to give this cigar a "highly recommended" rating.
