First third – Notes of toast and earth hit the palate first followed by a nice tangy cedar and spice. The earth mixes with some coffee notes here as well. Burn is slightly wavy. Ash is a medium gray and fell at the end of the third.
Second Third – Spice, cedar and a orange rind note come into play here with the rich earth lingering on the finish. The burn remains slightly wavy.
Final Third – The spice and cedar really carry this home with the cigar getting really earthy on the finish. The burn remains wavy.
Wine – Ponzi Pinot Grigio

This Nestor Miranda Corojo Corona Gorda has a really nice flavor profile that should fit most palates out there. You have everything from spice and cedar to some orange citrus like notes that really make this unique. I enjoyed this size cigar and felt like the flavor profile was a little more complex than the robusto size.
