Cigar Review: Nestor Miranda Corojo Corona Gorda

Nestor Miranda Corojo Corona Gorda

Size – Corona Gorda

Wrapper – Nicaraguan Corojo 

Tobacco Blend – Nicaraguan 

Pricing – $7.75

Body – Medium 

Construction/Appearance:

The cigar is super firm, a rustic brown in color with some obvious veins and tight seams. 

Pre-Light: 

Aroma – Cedar and Sweet Nuts

Type of Cut – Straight

Cold Draw – Cedar and Nuts

After Toast:

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.

Suggested Pairing:

Wine – Ponzi Pinot Grigio 

Scotch – Glenmorangie

Overall Experience:

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.
