Por Larrañaga Double Corona

7" X 50, Natural

Wrapper: Connecticut Shade
Binder: Dominican
Filler: Dominican

Appearance: Another really well constructed cigar. Evenly packed and filled to just a slight give, this cigar was topped with a beautiful light brown Connecticut Shade Wrapper. Pretty

Pre-Light: This cigar clipped easy and the draw seemed to be fine. The pre light notes were of cinnamon, tanginess, and a tiny bit of black pepper.

Burn/Draw: Like I said, this was another well constructed cigar, and it shows. This cigar burned beautifully, straight the whole way down. The draw was nice and easy and produced volumes of cool white smoke.

Flavors: This may look like a real short review, and it is. This cigar really doesn't deserve a full right up. Now by no means is this a bad cigar, but it really isn't fabulous either. It had some nice cinnamon and tangy notes, and the last third had some black pepper. But that's about it. This cigar is mild in flavor and mild-medium in body. Someone who smokes milder cigars might dig this cigar, it was a bit flavorless to me.
