Fernando Leon Family Reserve Corona Gorda Review

Fernando Leon Family Reserve Corona Gorda - 6 X 47. Wrapper - Dominican Republic Corojo, Binder - Dominican Republic Corojo, Filler - Peru, Dominican Republic, Brazil. Medium bodied.

Initial lighting taste - Pepper and a dry woodiness.

First third - Spice followed by a floral breadiness and wood.

Second third - Spice, creamy sweet breadiness, floral and wood notes. Nice balance.

Last third - Spice continues along with the sweet creamy bread, floral and wood notes. Long finish of bready spice.

Construction - Attractive light-brown bumpy wrapper with a few minor veins. Nice oily sheen and a good cap.

Burn - Straight burn with a flaky, dark-gray colored ash that holds on and inch or so at a time.

Draw - Very good draw that produces plenty of smoke.

Another excellent tasting cigar produced by the La Aurora Cigar Company that has an interesting, complex and unique flavor profile. I found the floral flavor to be an enjoyable and uncommon surprise. The complexity and balance was very good which I have come to expect from La Aurora cigars. MSRP for this size is $8.90 which is a good price point for this cigar. I found this cigar to be medium in body so anytime from midday on would be when I would look to fire one up. A definite recommend to try for yourself.
